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. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11897650 Magnesium as a calcium channel blocker should do what luteolin does. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3300911 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.
