Andrea is it advisable to take the 2 uridine capsules at once together with the morning membrosia? Or is it better to have also the membrosia twice daily?

Quoted from Lola

get the linseed oil with lignans instead.....for cellular absorbtion


Thanks, Lola.    Do you think it's ok to have the membrosia ingredients (juice, flax oil and lecithin) combined with other ingredients additionally, such as blended fruit and chia seeds?

I'll have to look into that.  Is it OK for kids.  If it's good for ADD/ADHD, it might benefit my stepgrandson.

I wanted to add this Uridine information to this thread. It is also referred to as a nootropic. It can be taken with the Membrosia cocktail.

What Is Uridine?
Uridine is an important building block used to create RNA. It can be found in many dietary sources such as Broccoli, Beer, and Tomatoes. Recently, studies have revealed that Uridine does in fact carry nootropic properties. Studies have shown that it works in synergy with Choline to help improve memory, improve fluid intelligence, and fight forms of dementia. [1] Other studies show that it can work in synergy with EPA/DHA omega-3 fatty acids to act as an anti-depressant.[2

Uridine Dosage Information
Regretfully, there is little information on a standard dosage for Uridine. Mot studies have been conducted on animals, and the scaled doseage to humans is hard to pinpoint. I would suggest following the instructions on the specific supplement you purchase.
However, I know many of you will be buying in bulk. Brewers yeast is a dietary source of Uridine at a 3% concentration. The recommended dose for this supplement is 20g. If you were to do the math, that’s 3% of 20,000mg or 600mg. My suggestion would be to start at 300mg per day and work your way up. It’s also important to note that the supplement you purchase may be a different percetage of Uridine, so you will have to adjust accordingly.

How Does Uridine Work?
Uridine increases the synthesis of brain phosphatidylcholine (PC). In fact, one study concluded that administration of Uridine and Choline may increase PC levels by up to 45% [3][5][10] This is important because PC is a very important part of your cell membranes. If your brain runs out of choline it begins to eat away at the PC component of your cell membranes. This can be problematic because the PC plays a crucial role in your cells ability govern its basic activies and regulate enzymes. [4] In other words, if a cell loses its PC, it can’t function properly.

Uridine is converted to CDP Choline in the brain. [11]. This increases synthesis of Acetylcholine (ACh).[6] ACh is a a key neurotransmitter involved in synaptic plasticity.[7] Synaptic plasticity refers to your brain’s ability to form, strengthen, weaken, or destroy connections between neurons. To be stated simply, the more synaptic your brain is, the greater your working memory is. The greater your working memory is, the greater your fluid intelligence is. [8]

Increases production of neurites. [9] A neurite is any projection of from the cell body. These “projections” can be either axons or dendrites. Axons are where signals leave your neurons and dendrites receive those signals.(Though it has recently been discovered that dendrites may release signals as well.) In other words, more neurites means you brain can make more connections. More connections leads to improved cognitive abilities.
Increases levels dopamine in the brain. [9] Dopamine is the key neurotransmitter involved in the reward and pleasure center of the brain. Higher levels of dopamine improve your motivation and give you more energy. Simply stated, it is easier to sustain attention on a particular task. This could also be one of the causes for Uridine’s anti-depressant properties. [2]

Safety and Side Effects of Uridine
Uridine is considered a relatively safe nootropic and shouldn’t present any problems if taken properly. In one study conducted to view the effects of uridine treatment on HIV lipoatrophy, 165 participants were given supplementation the contained uridine for 48 weeks. Only three of the participants dropped out of the trial due to diarrhea. The study stated that “Uridine was well tolerated”. [17] Thus far diarrhea is the only reported side effect, and this side effect did not persist when doses were stopped.

There is also evidence to suggest Uridine may lower levels of Vitamine B12. [18] This can easily be avoided by taking vitamin B12 supplements and B9 supplements.

The uridine is here! Started to take this morning with membrosia.

Now the morning looks festive with 3 major stops:

(a) 1 level tbls of Trehalose Complex in warm lemon water.

(b) 1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh green juice (celery stalks, half an unpeeled zucchini, kale leaves, romain lettuce leaves, etc)

(c) membrosia with egg yolk lecithin and uridine.

(b) and (c) are immediately followed by a protein breakfast. This morning: steamed fish (Argyrosomus regius) and scrambled egg.

Glad you got your uridine....Just curious about something you mentioned.  I didn't see that your
membrosia drink contained an oil. Mine contains flax oil....My husband's contains pumpkin seed oil.  We both use soy lecithin, plus a few oz of  juice and I take 2 uridine with my drink. DH no longer is supposed to use uridine. (don't know why)....we were told by Dr. D to wait 20-30 minutes before consuming anything with fat after we consume the membrosia drink. I noticed
you said you immediately followed your drink with eggs and fish.  All good but wondering if
you knew to wait before consuming fat.....or is this necessary for everyone.  I'm not sure.  Just
pointing it out in case a forum moderator knows for sure.  Want you to get the best results possible!

Yes, the drink should contain a compliant oil and it's that oil combined with the lecithin that needs
time to be digested, independently of other fats....  I was wondering whether yaeli's membrosia drink contained oil....It appeared from her description that she didn't wait.

Thank you Chloe.

Sure, flax seed oil in cranberry drink made of Dynamic Health concentrate and mineral water. In Summer there's no problem for me to make it with watermelon juice, but now in autumn I'm not sure my GI tract can stand the red grapefruit juice. I'll make the decision when I look at it on the store shelf. In the meantime I still look in the other direction...    

I particularly mentioned the lecithin only because I ordered egg yolk lecithin capsules (from Swanson) especially, in order to consume less soya products. Soy lecithin in granules is available everywhere, but I'd rather avoid it.

I reacted very strongly to the uridine. At this moment it seems a different life: before September 19th and after September 19th, the day I began to take it. I feel more myself, more my young self, as thoughts are running and decisions are made with less effort for the benefit of my tiniest daily chores, from laundry to trying on outfits for dinner outing.   And I sleep well.

I kind of dislike to go there, but I was looking for the difference between egg yolk lecithin and soy lecithin and this is the first page that popped up

WOW, you brought up something that never dawned upon me before....where lecithin comes from.
And Dr. D doesn't specify any type of lecithin product....so when membrosia is suggested for anyone of any genotype, I would think most people are buying any product that says "lecithin"

I found sunflower lecithin from Swanson's although as a type A who can have soy, don't think it
would be necessary for me to switch.  I have major issues with eggs so would never buy the egg
yolk lecithin but wondering about men....would they want to keep ingesting soy lecithin?

Thank you Chloe, now I am glad I asked. Sunflower seeds are avoids for me, so I'll stick with the egg yolk lecithin capsules.

From my Best Avoided list:

Soybean Beans •
Soybean Granules, Lecithin •
Sunflower Seeds

I must restrain my egg yolk (a diamond) consumption though, as a recent computerized diagnosis indicated it as a mild allergen. More exercises and walks in the fresh air are in order....

After the Membrosia Complex list of ingredients, I've just included Black Cumin Oil in my Membrosia for the first time. Have never tasted this oil before. I can tell you, for me its beautiful flavour turns Membrosia into sheer nectar of the gods. Paradise on Earth. An extraordinary experience. Thank you again and again, Dr. D.

The walnut oil and black cumin oil that I have been adding to my membrosia since the new membrosia combo release have upgraded its taste I make it with cranberry concentrate, and I agree it's the beverage of the gods. Anyway, surely with God's grace. I dance in the kitchen.

Yaeli - Where do you get the black cumin oil? I seem to only be able to find it in capsules when searching the web. I too use cranberry concentrate that is not sweetened.

In health food stores. It's cold pressed but not organic. I have to call the local distributor (of organic foods) and find out about the manufacturer, who I think is local. The same distributor imports the walnut oil from the U.S., cold pressed organic walnut oil made by Jedward International (who also sell organic black cumin seed oil).

I've checked in Vitacost and in Amazon and they both have black cumin seed oil.

Vitacost: in bottles of 4, 8, or 32 fl oz.

Amazon: in bottles of various sizes.
