I tried applying it on my skin, but as it doesn't dissolve completely, all I got was a mess...  


If you rub it in with lemon juice, your body heat will eventually dissolve it. I just keep adding a little lemon juice and rubbing until this happens. In fact, I just did it, and it works! My hand is as smooth as velvet!

Here is another suggestion: Someone said that they had reduced it to the consistency of powdered sugar and then mixed it into various body applications. Put enough in your blender (I don't think a processor will work for this at all) to cover the blades and let it run for about 2 minutes. Add to lotions, liquid soaps, etc.. Companies have been adding this stuff to these products for a while now and charging plenty for them too. Even men just love what it does for their skin! BTW, if this is too much for body stuff, you can always take it as your usual supplement!

This is probably the citrus pectin.  It won't dissolve in water.  For skin application, it may be better to get plain Trehalose.

The heat from our bodies will dissolve it if it is mixed with a little lemon juice and thoroughly rubbed in. Of course, to use on the hands, you only need a very small amount anyway!

I tried heating some lemon juice and adding TC to it, but it wouldn't dissolve, and then I added a bit of coconut oil but still got just an exfoliating mixture

Well, I don't know what could be different. I dab plain old, cold lemon juice on my hand or anywhere else, put a little dry TC on it and rub about 30 seconds, adding a little more juice as needed, and that is it! And there certainly isn't any exfoliating!  Do you have any idea how much TC you used? Maybe you don't rub as hard as I do!   But I don't rub hard enough to damage my skin or turn it red or anything like that! I have done this several times, and it works every time.

When I have time I will try some in my blender and see how that turns out. Stay tuned.....!

I don't think I would want to mush TC in the blender.. nor heat it up..

I use a pinch, a small pinch, and 3 drops of juice in the palm of my hand and APPLY it with a little rub over face neck and hands .. but mostly only until it sort of dries up and stays.. it feels a little ruff but then I think it still does its job (yes, sort of like exfoliating at 60.- dollar a pop)  ..

Even if the 'grittiness' is left on the skin today here and there, tomorrow it will be on another there and elsewhere .. so eventually it will get to do its clean up job in all the places.. and the little grapefruit juice seems ok, so far no outbreaks..

It was more about getting the little bit out of the glass instead of letting it go down the dishwasher drain.. This is good stuff, so why not use it all up.. Like me, I wish to be all used up by the end of my time- nothing left- but never abused, so be careful about rubbing to hard, the skin may not need it after a while. .  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Okay, I did the "experiment!" Using my blender, which is an older model going back to about 1975 but still very powerful - it only took about 30-45 seconds, and I did NOT have to put enough in it to cover the blades!   About 1 Tbs. would have been plenty. And it is beautiful!! Nice and fluffy and a little water and a little of this stuff and you have a perfect, magical skin tonic!! Whoop-de-doo!!! I have enough to last a very long time. I probably have enough to share with every woman posting on this board!! You men would just have to shift for yourselves though!!

Oh, and I used the little tads left on the blender to give my arms a nice treatment!

So, there you have it!

Great Spring!!
I just tried again and I obviously used too much last time I took a teeny tiny pinch and put a couple of drops of lime juice on top and rubbed it in.. you can hardly notice the grittiness but I don't appreciate the shine... Maybe next time I'll try with just water.

How are you keeping it FRESH?  Nice to think we could use it all over as a shower gel??  

SOOOO much fun in this thread  .

It's as if the word sugar has released mighty immaginations---

I just put it dry into my empty TC container so I would know what it is until I come up with whatever else I can do with it! As for putting it into creams, gels, etc., I don't think we can hurt TC at all. It isn't as if it is a little delicate flower!

And just look at this!! Dr. D. could write a book about what this stuff can do!!!

New studies reveal how a low-cost nutrient, Ribose, can protect against cell damage that occurs during a heart attack and help rejuvenate heart muscles that have suffered injuries from previous ischemic (no blood flow) events. Incredible! Dr. D. has been telling us how it will fix things, but actual events like heart attacks, and even damage from them, that can benefit from it, gets down to where we might be living now or sometime in the future! I know more than one person who should be taking this as if their lives depended on it!

So .... I am going to sweeten my life when I get a heart attack?? or after?  

I wonder one more time.. Would eating more of it cause sugar / sweet craving to be stilled (if I get over the price   )  

I still wonder if it is the RIBOSE that is making the energy / cleaning difference, or the Trehalose?..  as in TC being miles better than plain trehalose? and so worth spending more = and eating it more often?  

has anyone tried the plain yet??   what does it do?

Quoted from NewHampshireGirl
I was so enthralled with the wonderful benefits you all are deriving from Trehalose that I ordered some.  I worked gradually from the one teaspoon to the second teaspoon and finally had to give it all up.  The outcome for me, unfortunately, is that the Trehalose affected my bowels, sometimes becoming very gaseous.  i found that I didn't want to sleep and that, in fact, I was becoming very nervous.  I wouldn't call it energy, just not a very good feeling inside of me.  The worst thing is that it raised my blood pressure way up.  I finally put the whole picture together and realized it was the Trehalose causing these effects.

Now that I have stopped, everything is back to normal.  I'm really sorry to report this but I realize that one negative report will not affect all those for whom the Trehalose has given remarkable results.  Just thought you might be interested.
Thank you for reporting the truth.  It will serve other B's and Nomads as a warning to look for this kind of issue.

It may be that the trehalose is perturbing the NO distibution.

Simply lowering the dosage would more than likely correct the problem.

I started 18 days ago with 2 level teaspoons daily as recommended, and immediately realized that this dosage was too powerful for me. According to ABJoe's advice in this thread I changed to a level 1/2 teaspoon once daily (morning), and that's how I'm continuing. This Monday I tried to raise to 3/4 teaspoon in the morning, and again this was too much, so I returned to 1/2 a teaspoon daily.

going slow with new meds is always wise.. NewHampshireGirl ... You used TC not plain?

I am glad you reported on the BP .. I noticed my pulse was back to 80-90 (used to be my normal but went to 60 a few month ago) .. could TC be doing that?  

as for the gas .. Yes it can do that, but it gets better after a few days.. and if I use less of it..

yet, my output is much less smelly..  

Interesting about BP?///   thanks..

Good for you, yaeli! I hope this amount continues to work for you!
ALL supplements should be taken with attention to our own reactions, etc. Some people can take 20,000 mgs. of Vitamin C with hardly any problem. Maybe it is because of their condition that their bodies need that amount. But I would have all kinds of problems with that much Vitamin C!!

I am just maybe experiencing more heartbeats.. ?

BUT I LOVE the lift and courrage it provides for my brain to undertake new things.. no doubt about that underpinning of who I am / brave.. yet chicken..    I am taking the second spoon TC when I need courrage.. a strange thing to experience..

Goldie, if we're all still around a year from now, I think we will still be noticing new things this supplement is doing for us! We used to talk about Vitamin C, then Elderberry, then Golden Seal, then ARA (to name a few among MANY MANY others). Now we are talking about Trehalose Complex/ARA! The feeling of well-being is at the top of the list for me, and everything else follows.

I took a teaspoon with just water this morning. It doesn't taste too sweet & I am at least a taster!

I only felt a little better today.  If there is not noticeable result, does that mean I am very toxic or very little toxic?
I don't think I am too toxic. Over the years I have done various things to improve my diet & now am pretty compliant. I suspect my thyroid is a little low(even tho test results are normal) & I have low blood sugar(but a great reading on fasting blood sugar tests, so it is the reactionary type IMO).

Any answers? Maybe it is too soon in the game to give a conclusive answer.
How close timewise should I take other supplements?

Thanks!!!

Yes, give it time to let the bodily systems do their work. I am not sure which one reacts fastest (nerves?), evidently the longest time is required by the bones.

NAP instructions only relate to green tea and quercetin.

The more specific advice I received here in this thread is:

a) For Green Tea: Let 1/2 an hour before and after.

b) For Quercetin, including cranberries: Let 1 hour before and after.

I was taking it in 1/4 sp doses just to allow me more grapefruit slices.. a treat for me.. the way I felt it at first was Imaginary activity inside the brain.. ha ha yet I do think it worked just that way.  eventually it was a slight sensation behind the eyes, and then I changed to a spoon in the am and then really felt a boost in my self confidence!  this is a strange issue with me.. I am the bravest chicken, I would walk on fire but promoting on interest I wish to introduce to someone specific nearly gives me a nervous breakdown.  When I work on that, to create text , I take a spoon full and soon I have the Courage of my conviction..

Yes it might be good to be aware that gas can be a bigger issue about three hours after.. so don't take it when it would be cause to be embarrassing..      

I am imagining that brown spots on my hand are getting less noticeably.. I wonder is it taking off my tan?  

THE biggest thing I seem to (tentatively) have noticed is that, I have few if any headaches, which I had for years on a daily basis.. even if I get one it lasts way less... the headache started in the back of my neck where scar tissue might have responded to emotional stress/tension and the TC might have cleared that up in some way ... frankly if I have fewer headaches, who cares why!!  

I also 'think' that my neuropathology in my legs,  which I keep under control with other treatments, also seem to be more 'feeling' responsive, but not more reactive!  ON important difference.

Finally, possibly my fingernails seem to grow and not break as much.. and the skin on the bottom of my feet might be less dry?

Putting a small pinch on my face picks up the jowl droopiness and smooths out some wrinkles..  I am grateful for any small thing..

so ........... for you.... who knows what might happen.. I am still in the discovery phase, and if it is all wishful thinking, or placebo effect, I don't care.. anything sweet and being medicinal quality food is just fine with me..

I have given up all fear about sugars.. nice.. (when diabetic, one can become paranoid about sugar/guilt... even if it is no ones fault...

NOW IF it would eat up some belly fat .. then I buy truckloads of it..  

Have fun experimenting with your own wishful-thinking mind... run lose, let go, give living a chance.. who knows, we may set the world on it's head.. and be 'happy' about it..

Thank you all for your responses.  My blood pressure is staying normal, now, and all in all I'm feeling great.  I've decided I take enough supplements and they're  the ones I'll stick with.  

I let out the news every once in awhile to people that this is the 14th year my husband and I have been following the blood type diet.  Each of us has received compliments on how we absolutely don't look our ages but isn't it funny that still these folks don't connect the dots and apply the BTD to themselves.  I just don't get it.
