Hello!

I bought some Trehalose (100% trehalose from Swanson Vitamins) and I have been using it for the last two days to flavor bitter drinks. I am consuming about a dozen teaspoons of it daily. What is it supposed to do?

I like it. Tastes ok. What am I doing to myself?

I don't know about another brand of Trehalose but I hope you are using the recommended dosage that this one says.  It seems excessive.

Dr. D'Adamo's Trehalose Complex helps clear protein build up and aid cellular repair.

Consider the value of researching a supplement prior to buying and dosing it in the future.

so on Dr. D's Trehalose , it says to take 1 level tsp twice daily in warm water with lemon.  Anyone know what the lemon does?  Can I just take it with warm water?

Also 1 level tsp.. is that a dinner tsp or an actual measuring tsp?

thanks much!  

it says it's for brain and nerve health.  Protein build up??? Never heard that before.

The lemon helps the body rid itself of waste.

To make sure you are dosing properly, you need to use an accurate measure.  If this requires you to use measuring spoon, so be it.

All cells make protein components as part of the growing / splitting cycle.  There are times when the components are not made properly (called mis-folded proteins).  Trehalose stimulates the cells to break these mis-folded proteins back into components to be reused to make correct products as needed by the cells.

I assume you are asking what is my experience with this supplement...  I take some once in a while, but I have so much ongoing detox that too much is overkill for me.  I have more trouble keeping the liver functioning well, so continue to stress food and supplements that support the liver system and the kidneys.

This supp does not interact with amino acid supp's like Tyrosine does it?  I've had a headache behind my right eye and nausea since starting it but I'm not sure if it's related or not.

not having read the answers.. I have never taken it plain only with d-ribose added from Dr D.. It is the 'complex' combo that works to cheer me up, while it also allows the sugar as a substitute way more healthy than any other for diabetics.. If you have no ill effects from the poder as a plain sugar I do not see why you would go back to regular sugar..it will clean up the body of debree..

But for the effect of making me happy, I needed the combo..

there was a thread with many about the combo things.. and feeling, You however might be the first to use it as a sugar.. good luck and please report to us what it does for you.. where did you buy it for how much?

  


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!

What would be a typical side effect from taking too much TC?   A toxic feeling?

For me it was more like an anxiety attack.  I either had to get moving or suffer the consequences.  At first, I kinda liked it.  But, after a while, I didn't care for that "up up and away" feeling it gave me.  I'm more of a Cortiguard or Tranquility Base type of person.  Something that will mellow me out.

I'm with you on the need to feel mellowed out.  Maybe you took too much too quickly.

What amount did you start with?   And did you ever increase that initial dose?  Curious how long after beginning TC did you start having issues and whether it was due to taking a higher dose at some point or not.

I started with 1/2 teaspoon and worked it up from there.  Initially, it was like the famous thread title "This is definitely Wow!"  I got used to it over time as my body adapted to it.  But, honestly, I was wondering what this concentrated substance was really doing to me.  Yes, I know the mantra "Trust Dr D", but still I was just unsure about it.  Also, timing it so that you don't have it with caffeine, etc. was an issue with me.  I think maybe when I retire, I might try it again and have it mid-morning during some exercise, so I can then time it right and then burn off all the energy.  Right now, though, I have to sit at a desk 8 hours a day, and my exercise is two 15-minute breaks a day (morning and afternoon) to walk through the building.  And that's enough for my type and the amount of weight I'm currently carrying around.

Maybe your body was happy on 1/2 tsp of TC and taking more was too much for your
current activity level.    My DH is a Warrior too.  Having read about a Warrior's predisposition for specific diseases on this website and in the GTD book, I know that they have health issues related to rapid aging. Trehalose increases autophagy and.....

Quote from Dr. D  "Slower aging is also associated with increased autophagy."


So if you were questioning if trehalose was helpful for you....you're currently 50 and a Warrior....time to start slowing down your aging process

I know what you're saying, but, still... isn't the SWAMI and it's current supplement recommendations what I'm supposed to follow?  Trehalose Complex is not mentioned in my SWAMI supplement recommendations.

TC is not mentioned in my husband's SWAMI either.  There are basic supplement recommendations that SWAMI gives us all but they're generally very basic.  The speciality
supplements, depending on the updates of SWAMI, TC might not have been put into the system nor might it ever be.  All I know is that Warriors age rapidly and that all Warriors could benefit
from increasing autophagy.....and if your instinct was to initially try it, I'm thinking it's far easier at age 50 to slow down aging than at 70.  

I think you might want to read this if you haven't already done so.  It might convince you to
go back and keep taking that 1/2 tsp of TC.

Of course it's okay if you don't take it... just giving Dr. D's explanation why it might be particularly
beneficial for a Warrior.

Yes.  When I take too much, I feel great for about 2 days then crash really hard due to the immense toxin flush.  I haven't found a way to supplement enough to keep the filtration systems functioning through the "big dump".

Hi Adam, in order to have TC somewhere during working hours you would need to find "a break from coffee" for 2 hours and a 1/4, 1 hour before and after, plus 15 minutes to enjoy the drink.

I drink 1 cup of coffee at 6:00am.  I drink 1 cup of green tea at 12:00pm.  This is the only caffeine I drink.

I might be able to sprinkle some TC on my grapefruit which I consume a little at a time during the morning from about 8:00am to 11:00am.  But, considering the number of supplements I'm now consuming, I just don't want to add another one right now.

I'm also in the same boat as ABJoe.  Too many toxins built up.  Carrying a lot of weight.  Take a look at James Gandolfini (a classic "bear" Warrior) during his last film.  I look just about as bad as that.  I'm 6'1" and just recently topped out at 260 lbs.  

I'm just now one month into SWAMI compliance after feasting during the holidays.  I'm in a really good routine now and want to keep it that way.  Keeping it completely on the left-hand-side and watching my portions.  Have gone from 260 to now 247 in a little over a month.  Don't even feel hungry.  I have 3 oz. of wild salmon every morning.  Great start to the day.  My body heat is now regulating a lot better (was very cold there for a while) and have more natural energy and feel very centered just from following my SWAMI and its supplement recommendations.  Also I'm following the skin and cardiovascular protocols.

Does this supplement make one feel more energetic and if so.. I shouldn't take it close to bedtime?

Everyone's different, but I would probably be awake all night if I took TC before bed.

Exactly what happened to me.  Was waiting for someone to describe this type of reaction....thanks! I'm getting a tiny amount of trehalose in my membrosia complex powder....so this is about all I seem to tolerate right now.
