I find it produces less bitter coffee than a [more]

Re: Contacts vs Glasses

Don't know how much this will help as my issues are different, but....I wear glasses only for distance for the most part. Until a few years ago, I didn't have to remove them to read. Now I do, which gives me excellent reading vision, down to very [more]

Re: 3 month green smoothie update

I miss cream and butter. But I like coconut milk and olive oil, so that's fine.

You have the option to use ghee when on a no-dairy protocol. As it is just pure butterfat with all the milk proteins removed (and no lactose), it doesn't [more]

Re: vitamin k2

Have you ever tried juicing (not the baseball kind)? My oldest daughter bought us a juicer last summer, and we added a couple glasses of let's see what fruits and veggies we can blend up today per day. It was a lot of work, but it was a great way [more]

Re: vitamin k2

If you have dietary restrictions, that's different. Not sure why supplements unless there's a reason you can't eat the foods that offer them.

Re: vitamin k2

One thing I noted on the Alive is that the vitamin K is in Phytonadione form, so K1, not menaquinone as in Pure Encap, so no MK-4 or MK-7.

The B12 in Alive is cyanocobalamin form, not methylcobalamin, which is more bio-available. I was low [more]

Re: vitamin k2

But I'll have to see if that would take the place of some of the things I now take separately.

Very possibly, if you compare the levels of nutrients. Vitamin C, for example, is 1120mg (includes 2 forms). Excellent B's, K, [more]

Re: How do YOU screen tenants?

Tenants with mammalian pets, usu dogs and cats, are required to carry a $100k renters insurance policy with us listed as interested parties so we are informed when the policy renews or lapses.
