Good to know, but disappointingI tried the blackcurrent supplements, did nothing of note.
I have three bottles of Ribena, its available in most grocery stores around here (Canada).
I save it for special occasions since its expensive (for me, being pathetically poor).
I'm going to go have some.
Any idea if this would cross the blood brain barrier?
Also a quick search has found this, might be doable for regular intake
I often do that. As a matter of fact, I will come here looking for something, put it in the search, find an interesting post, and then realize I wrote it.I am now unable to stop laughing, because I had entirely already forgotten this black current cure. 27 days later.
Cycling back here, Oh yes, I wanted to try black currents!
that will fix it.
"Well earned"????I really don't wish to compete for your well earned title,
Sorry, no my yob.EGAD save me.
Hasn't been mentioned in this thread but valcyte was once mentioned to inhibit microglia cells, but I guess was the microclia because of a herpes virus??? Maybe it was Dr Montoya? I can't recall the name but someone from pr use to use microdoses of valcyte and get good improvements from it.
My last stint on valcyte this year, fog/headaches cleared up quite quickly but not sustainable once I finished 3 months of valcyte.
But no idea if it's indirectly treating microglia by treating viruses or directly hitting microglia.
This brain fog research by researchers Michelle Monje and Akiko Iwasaki sounds interesting. So excerpts:
It seems that in brain fog, specialized microglia in the white matter may have become permanently switched on:
The factor that is switching on these microglia appears to be CCL11:
Interestingly, CCL11 was found elevated in the brains of ME/CFS too, in this study.
