pairs well with EPA for depression

Posted on Apr 10, 2009

4 people found the following review helpful

I take this mostly for the orotate, which converts to uridine and helps omega-3 fats work for depression and better cognition. Though the magnesium is highly bioavailable, a simple citrate is much cheaper. To get a reasonable dose of magnesium from this orotate form, you'd need to consume a great deal of orotic acid, which like some essential nutrients, may help tumors grow. (Just a word of caution, and something to research. An alternative source of uridine is triacetyluridine, but I'm not sure this gets around the tumor promotion issue. For perspective, consider that folate, thiamin, and beta-carotene can also promote tumors.) Regardless, I haven't found a better supply team (Nutrient Carriers Incorporated, iHerb) for magnesium orotate, which I continue to take twice a day (500 mg each time). Take care and be moderate.

helpful for skin, may be a good complement for fish oil

Does have a noticeable effect on fine wrinkles, whether you take it internally for weeks or apply it topically for days. The effect disappears quickly once you stop, and I don't entirely trust the safety of this compound beyond what I get from eating generous helpings of wild salmon. Still I believe you get what's advertised here; I'm only holding out for more research.

seems to help with migraines

Posted on Apr 10, 2009

2 people found the following review helpful

This appears to be going off the market. Excellent stuff--I'm building a stockpile while I can. The migraine benefit may come from the tendency of vitamin B-6 to increase the ratio of GABA to glutamate (the ratio runs low in migraineurs and epileptics). Do not combine more than 50 mg a day with nortriptyline, or your head will start going fuzzy and you'll make lots of arithmetic errors. There is a listed interaction, but I know not everyone checks.

a solid magnesium supplement, though the potassium seems to me to be a gimmick

While I'd prefer magnesium taurinate with additional magnesium, this'll do and it's cheaper! Currently I take magnesium for general health and to keep migraines at bay. Though I'm not sure how much the magnesium or taurine does for migraines, I do know that my supplement regimen (key: butterbur extract, product: Migra-Eeze) and some care about dietary triggers has almost eliminated my migraines, which I was getting almost every other day. Now, often a tisane of bay leaves and ginger will do what it took 800 mg ibuprofen and 1.5 g acetaminophen, or sometimes an Imitrex or two, to do before. The headaches are milder and rarer and shorter. Magnesium plays some part in this. The price and brand are right.

decent fish oil

This is okay, but I much prefer Country Life's EPA Mood, which seems to work better--perhaps the oil stays fresher?--and rather more economically.

will stop winter blues; don't forget your K2

Posted on Apr 10, 2009

1 person found the following review helpful

Seems to get the job done! I take 4000 IU a day and this has eradicated the winter slump I've experienced every year as long as I can remember. Two years now without it. If you supplement vitamin D, make sure you also supplement vitamin K2. (I suggest Jarrow's MK-7.)

essential for those who take nortriptyline

Posted on Jul 25, 2009

1 person found the following review helpful

I took one every other day to counteract the CoQ10 depletion caused by nortriptyline. While it could be my imagination or something else, the nortriptyline seemed to become more effective at controlling migraines.
