The hour has now passed, I have swallowed my 2 capsules of chaga (very black, I don't empty them as they colour the teeth), and now I am sitting down with my "morning coffee": a mag with the contents of 3 caps maitake extract (which surely has a high content of quercetin), 1 cap reishi, and 2 caps agaricus, my old favs, in hot water. A delight.

Yay, I just got my order!!!    
I took half a tsp in a little lemon, and I don't find it sweet at all    
I also got some ara6 and took half a tsp in a little water and that was just awful  
Oh well, I'm sure it's worth it   and I hope to get used to the taste...
But as I say, I wouldn't use TC as a sweetener as to my mouth it's not sweet at all.

Congratulations Pixu!  

True, it's only very slightly sweet, like a hint that it's a sugar and not a salt. Sweetness is not its strong side.

eating Trehalose all our lives!


in what or how?

Lemon is sour so unless you dilute it the SMALL amount of 'sugar' will not overcome that.. That is why I think buying the trehalose as a 2 pound sugar might be nice , then one could use more of it in drinks and or foods..

For the TC - sprinkled on grapefruit slices it is nice.. Otherwise I take it in diluted grapefruit juice..

I am getting more and more certain that for me it is REDUCING aggravating headaches by a lot.

I never have had such relative long times when I did not suffer daily.  I even overcame pills with caffeine with only ONE big headache, unheard of.. and then it was near bearable.. I am afraid to really believe it as I suffer for years on a daily basis for 6 hours.. so for me that is a mayor change..

I also no longer have a white tongue.. I would say that is a big indication that something is being cleaned up..

My teeth feel cleaner longer.  and with the PURPOSEFUL eating of grapefruit, I seem to be satisfied and look less for other fruit. A better state of mind.  

AS FOR A WISH LIST: I would love to see my fingernails to grow and not break all the time.
                              I would love to see dark spots on my skin get lighter,, I think it is happening /possible?.?.?
                              I would love to have my brain 'thinking' and feeling more 'naive/optimistic' become better - like before menopause.. that would be nice.
                              I would like the skin on my feet to be less dry.  
    


I have taken it every day since Dr D wrote about it.  I had bought TC a week earlier.

I THINK we should distinguish clearly what it is we are taking/eating..

Quoted Text
TC for Dr D's complex... 2 spoons as a medicine
trehalose -plain -when bought by the pound... for regular sugar substitute.
Trehalose in pill form??? black ones????  


or whatever as that will make a difference to be fair.


1 negative MAYBE:  I recently have morning swollen fingers (again..) yet, that might be from other causes...  


This upbeat thread has been fun in it's celebration of something positive to experience and report on.

Biological properties

In nature, trehalose can be found in animals, plants, and microorganisms. In animals, trehalose is prevalent in shrimp, and also in insects, including grasshoppers, locusts, butterflies, and bees, in which blood-sugar is trehalose. The trehalose is then broken down into glucose by the catabolic enzyme trehalase for use. Trehalose is also present in the nutrition exchange liquid of hornets and their larvae.
In plants, the presence of trehalose is seen in sunflower seeds, moonwort, Selaginella plants,[8] and sea algae. Within the fungi, it is prevalent in some mushrooms, such as shiitake (Lentinula edodes), maitake (Grifola fondosa), nameko (Pholiota nameko), and Judas's ear (Auricularia auricula-judae), which can contain 1% to 17% percent of trehalose in dry weight form (thus it is also referred to as mushroom sugar). Trehalose can also be found in such microorganisms as baker's yeast and wine yeast, and it is metabolized by a number of bacteria, including Streptococcus mutans, the common oral bacterium responsible for dental plaque.
When tardigrades (water bears) dry out, the glucose in their bodies changes to trehalose when they enter a state called cryptobiosis — a state wherein they appear dead. However, when they receive water, they revive and return to their metabolic state. It is also thought that the reason the larvae of sleeping chironomid (Polypedilum vanderplanki) and artemia (sea monkeys, brine shrimp) are able to withstand dehydration is because they store trehalose within their cells.
Even within the plant kingdom, Selaginella (sometimes called the resurrection plant), which grows in desert and mountainous areas, may be cracked and dried out, but will turn green again and revive after a rain because of the function of trehalose.[8] It is also said that the reason dried shiitake mushrooms spring back into shape so well in water is because they contain trehalose.
The two prevalent theories as to how trehalose works within the organism in the state of cryptobiosis are the vitrification theory, a state that prevents ice formation, or the water displacement theory, whereby water is replaced by trehalose,[9] although it is possible that a combination of the two mechanisms is at work.
C elegans fed trehalose live 30 or 60 pct longer. yet those with modified IGF receptor genetics do not show an effect, suggesting trehalose has longevity receptor activity. (pubmed)  
The enzyme trehalase, a glycoside hydrolase, present but not abundant in most people, breaks trehalose into two glucose molecules, which can then be readily absorbed in the gut.
Trehalose is the major carbohydrate energy storage molecule used by insects for flight. One possible reason for this is that the double glycosidic linkage of trehalose, when acted upon by an insect trehalase, releases two molecules of glucose, which is required for the rapid energy requirements of flight. This is double the efficiency of glucose release from the storage polymer starch, for which cleavage of one glycosidic linkage releases only one glucose molecule.

Okay!! So you know we will be wanting and waiting to know how TC works for you!!!
I take my ARA in capsules! I love how it makes me feel! As for as the TC, it is funny how different we are because it tastes very sweet to me! One person has likened the taste to a powdered version of Marshmallow Peeps! But it sounds as if it doesn't quite get to that level with your taste buds! Who knows, it might even improve them. I know I began to taste things even better after I started taking it. Food just tastes so wonderful to me now!

Ok, since I'm not eating any insects, shellfish, or sunflower seeds, what other sources of trehalose are there in the diet? I'm not a big fan of mushrooms, even though I do have several "beneficial" varieites. Does nutritional yeast contain trehalose?

I haven't found that out yet, Ruthie, but if I do I will certainly post it!! I'm pretty sure this is a big part of the reason I used to get on such a high when I was taking a fourth of a cup a day!!

Spring I looked at the capsules for ara6 but they have quercetin added to them so they can't be taken with TC. Since TC is said to be even more effective when used with ara I decided to get the powder.
I was wondering if you're supertaster? I'm a slight taster myself, I wonder if that makes a difference..

Nutrition data is provided for 2 Tablespoons (16 grams) - shows there is 1 gram of sugar and 4 grams dietary fiber per serving.  I haven't found any breakdown of all sugars by % that are in the 1 gram.  I assume Trehalose would be included in the sugar but it may be in the dietary fiber - depends on the specific rules for the Nut. Info...

I am taking the ARA that I was already using - away from Trehalose, of course! But the truth is, it seems like Trehalose has souped up all my supplements, (and I don't take any of them at the same time as TC) and I have lowered the amounts I'm taking! Yes, I am a supertaster!

For those taking ARA6 whether the plus with quercetin or the powder form without it can you tell me what it was doing for you specifically b/f beginning the TC.

They seem to work synergistically from what I understand.  I read the description of ARA6 on the nurtional page for all blood types.  It is an immune booster and a source of fiber for one thing.

I'm thinking of order some ARA6 (probably the powder form as Pixu did) because I have quercetin capsules separately.

Thanks.

Joy, I would get the powder, as you mentioned, so you can take it with TC. I LOVE ARA! Anything that makes my stomach feel better is worth taking. I think it does for my stomach what TC does for my head!! It makes them work better! Besides, ARA helps me keep well.

I know both of these supplements are doing a whole lot more than we can actually "feel" at first, but it really does help when we have the added bonus of feeling great right off the bat while they go about their more important business!

Spring,

I like what you said about what ARA does for your stomach and TC does for your head.  That sounds like a good mix and match.

So, thanks for that.  

Onward and upward as they say.

I used some TC on my face and hand skin with 3 drops of lemon last night and the results are the most smooth skin.. nice.. I have good skin to begin with but it feels like exfoliation..  /

Yesterday I got up without any special issues, took one spoon of TC and felt very pleasantly energetic all day.  That is not always the case. I will do 1 full spoon in the am today again and see how it goes.  I even went shopping for snack foods to take to a party I could eat - a nice change IN THINKING.

I woke with a small headache, but I will try to avoid taking pills or caffeine- and stop the whip lash effect.  The pain is not full blown yet, and I have no idea what is working.. the grapefruit juice or the combo of TC cleaning up the caffeine recepticles... Caffeine is the fastest way for me to get rid of a headache, but the lack of it can also be the reason for it.  I am hoping that TC somehow cleans up the need for opening or closing the neck 'muscles' and the corresponding headache. I can tell when it lets go as the 'clicking' around my ear area starts and soon after all gets better. I keep hoping.

I ordered some & asked to wait till next week to deliver it (NATO conference may complicate things!).
Is there any hope that it helps moderate the appetite?

I will see how it works with a small dose to start.  Maybe I will only take it in winter when I have trouble getting going.  The sunny weather lately has given me better energy; I wish I weren't so affected by the weather!

As it helps with clearer thinking, I assume it helps to reach better decisions regarding daily menu composition and exercising.

At the same time it helps to appease stress, the worst cause for over eating.

For myself, I feel that it is important to make every effort to stay compliant on the diet while taking Trehalose! In spite of my best efforts, not once but twice this past weekend we ate out.  Mother's Day, you know! (I have been avoiding eating out like the plague for months!)

Well, I am still trying to get over the tiny avoids that I simply couldn't avoid! UGH!!! It is like Trehalose is hammering me for it too! But I'm GLAD! I find I am having to eat more protein to get the best of this. I was fine, I thought, on Monday, but oh, boy, it hit fast and furious by Tuesday. Actually, I feel great except this wanting to nibble on stuff every thirty minutes. At least I have plenty to eat that is all right.

All I can say is, eating food that you know exactly how it was prepared is wonderful!!!!!

There were no troublesome aches and pains or any other physical ailments from eating the avoids, so I know I am doing really great - well, that is, except for my little toe that I nearly smashed to bits when I dropped an 18 volt battery on it while I was standing on concrete this afternoon! I was nearly blind with pain it hurt so bad! It is nice and black from top to bottom, but the throbbing has throttled down to a hum now so maybe I will be able to sleep!
