    Vegas. It's in message #41 in the sulfite/sulfate ammonia thread in the methylation forum.

    He said magnesium is bifidogenic, too, if I remember correctly. The thing about magnesium is that it's a calcium channel blocker. Intracellular calcium is needed in order for LPS to cause degranulation, so the magnesium brings a protective mode with it.

    A calcium signal is essential for degranulation, generation of eicosanoids and optimal production of cytokines in mast cells in response to antigen and other stimulants.

    Through it's calcium channel blocking, luteolin protects against LPS induced damage. I'll get one now that shows that magnesium does the same thing.

    Magnesium as a calcium channel blocker should do what luteolin does.

    Maybe B2 brings a protective mode with it, too, I don't know.

    Another one that he said is bifidogenic is pantothenic acid. I don't know how that would affect the stew, though.

    I ran across a website many years ago maintained by a Methodist minister who strongly believed that the anti-oxidant Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPCs) had a unique ability to heal the blood brain barrier, and in turn, significantly improve symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. He believed blueberries was one of the best foods for this, as it was very high in OPCs. The following is a link to a book that discusses the role of anti-oxidants (and OPCs) in healing the blood brain barrier.

    Blueberries is one of my favorite foods, and I look forward every year to them coming into season. During this time, I do a modified partial fast of mostly blueberries and fermented raw goat kefir. Watermelon is also a part of my diet during this time. It usually leads me to feeling better than most other times of the year.
