Here is a fascinating paper entitled “Neuroprotective mechanisms of astaxanthin: a potential therapeutic role in preserving cognitive function in age and neurodegeneration.” Link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5352583/  The complete paper is available as a pdf. Astaxanthin supplementation sounds a good idea.

And I have just read the pdf and am going to take astaxanthin much more regularly in future.....................Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Thanks for that DW... Seaweed has been a regular part of my natural remidy for a few years now.. 



The Greatest Risk of all is Not taking the Risk...

Is this related to cantaxanthin? E161g

If it is a retinoid then it might be connected to vitamin A.

I find the combination of vitamins A, D, E, K2 + cofactor minerals (magnesium, zinc, selenium, boron, iodine) to be very effective against the chlamydia. So much that I stopped all antibiotics and am killing the bugs just by vitamins. Because of my 3/4 of a year experience with antibiotics, I know how a die off feels so I know I have the same die off reactions with vitamins. I cannot take too much because of herxes.

Vitamin A (retoid like astaxanthin) has a common receptor with vitamin D - VDR/RXR - together they regulate hundreds of genes, immune reactions, and synthetize proteins. The proteins are activated by vitamin K2. If you take the vitamins in an isolated form, it can be dangerous. Fore example if you supplement just A, you create or exacerbate vitamin D deficiency. If you supplement just D, you create magnesium deficiency etc.


I am a little suspicious of seafood - the seas are poisoned and people who eat too much seafood are mercury and other other heavy metals poisoned.

BTW, David, I recently read a fascinating book about microbes, it is called "I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life". Really, it expaned my perspective on microbes in a huge way. There is no mention of chlamydia hovewer. But there are fascinating insights about the relationships of microbes and people/animals.
