BTD Forums  /  Supp Right For Your Type  /  Yes, Trehalose Complex is definitely Wow!

Firstly...to explain...

Quote from Dr.D: "Autophagy (‘self-eating’) is a catabolic (breakdown) process used by cells to degrade and remove some of their internal components deemed to be unnecessary or undesirable."

Now....here's the point...

Quoted from Dr.D's post in (n=1): "One interesting agent with well-recognized effects on autophagy is the natural disaccharide sugar trehalose, a sugar produced by bonding two glucose molecules together in a way that differs significantly from the sugar on top of a jelly donut. Trehalose is found in many organisms, including bacteria, yeast, fungi, insects, invertebrates, and plants. It functions to protect the integrity of the cell against various environmental stresses like heat, cold, desiccation, dehydration, and oxidation by preventing the screwing-up of the cell’s protein insides.

Extracting trehalose used to be a difficult and costly process, but recently an inexpensive extraction technology has allowed for its use in a broad spectrum of applications. Trehalose prevents cells from dehydrating, a phenomena that disrupts much of the cell’s insides in way that are not reparable. Trehalose-treated cells seem to resist this because the trehalose ‘splints’ their guts in place, so that when the cells get a chance to rehydrate they come back good-as-new. Dehydrated cells are common with aging, as the aging process tends to thin out the cell membrane, making it harder and harder for the cell to maintain its internal water balance.

Trehalose has been accepted as a novel food ingredient under the GRAS terms in the U.S. and the EU. Trehalose has also found commercial application as a food ingredient. It is available in dietary supplement form http://www.4yourtype.com/prodinfo.asp?number=NP067" (Quote end)

I didn't know where to post this to ask the question: Can Trehalose be used to sweeten foods?

Yes, probably too expensive to use in regular cookin/ baking but so are the other healthy
options. So rather than taking it as a supplement could one use it to substitute 'sugar' and so 'kill two birds with one stone'? (As in use a supplement you'd want to use anyway while cutting out 'sugar' in a recipe where you'd still use it despite that we all know one shouldn't  ;D )

PS: I highly recommend reading the whole blog- it explains the above in 'plain english' and makes you want to learn more!  http://n-equals-one.com/blogs/
There are so many things to know and explore about our bodies and so many more facets to 'Eating Right' than I ever imagined....WOW.

My suggestion is to taste a bit of it to see whether it has a sweet flavor.  If it does, then it would be useful for uncooked items.  
You might want to research whether heating will cause any known negative effects, but I doubt it since it occurs naturally in plants.  Next would be to add it to something cooked or baked to see if the flavor changed during those processes.

You might have more problem with "overdose" than with anything else...  Remember that most things in over-abundance become problems...

Dr D
Here's a totally anecdotal story. I've been watching an age spot develop slowly on the right side of my nose, probably the result of sun exposure from sailing. I've been taking trehalose (1 tblsp daily in grapefruit juice for about two weeks). Yesterday Martha remarked that the spot seems to have lightened to the point of almost disappearing. I noticed another one on the back of my right hand also lightening.

Trehalose can be used in cooking and baking. Here is an example of a product that is currently being actively advertised online:

http://www.basspro.com/LEM-Trehalose/product/10225723/69579?ST=541810aa-a90d-6a48-8335-000039385ef4  

But I would not use Dr. D.'s product for this since it contains other ingredients and is designed to be a supplement rather than for cooking.

When buying Trehalose from other places, be a little careful about the source, most of the time it is just corn starch cut up into two glucose units.

It has a sweet taste but it is not strong enough to do much to sweeeten food items, in my personal experience.

Trehalose is about 45% as sweet as sucrose (sugar at the grocery store).

I like it mixed with grapefruit juice!  It would be really nice to be able to bake with it.  I wonder if it could be used in combination with agave so you could reduce the amount of that. I find agave too addicting.

Think about how awesome it is and how you feel better right after you take it.

Well, thanks guys for all the links!

Sure made for some very interesting reading- very intrigued with the age spots and the anti 'old wo/man smell' bath :o

Being able to use it in baking is great, because I do miss the cakes and biscuits even if I don't want to eat them for the sweetness- they are just more of a treat than eating an egg or a slice of beef ;D

So where to get my hands on some.... :-/

The only reason I can think of is if, as C# said, it is cut down corn starch and the processor wasn't watching quality well, some uncut starch could be in your package of trehalose.  

I have no idea, however, how likely this is to happen.

Dr. D has never said it matters.

Things made from corn generally make me sick.  For many people this does not matter they can eat corn.

I am therefore leery of buying corn products (especially those from agricultural giant Cargill-which loves to use genetically modified corn).

Trehalose used to called mushroom sugar and products made from mushroom are expensive.

A few years ago Hayashibara and Cargill discovered you could make trehalose cheaply by throwing a few enzymes on some corn starch and splitting up the starch in smaller units.

If you can eat other products made from corn-

Acetic acid
Ascorbates
Citric acid
Dextrose
Fructose
Fumaric acid
Germ/germ meal
Glucose syrup
Maltitol
Maltodextrin
Maltol
Maltose
Propionic acid

My guess is you will do fine on trehalose.

Obviously if things were 100% pure without anything else it would not matter what was the original source.

But my experience is most food products made from corn are not at 100% purity levels.

The products are not labeled with purity and I cannot afford to send them to labs for testing.

Understood,

I wonder what's the source of the trehalose Dr.D is using?

In Ireland nearly all trehalose products are Treha™ (Cargill's brand of Trehalose) whether the packets say Treha™ or not. This is because EU regulations grants Cargill pretty much exclusive rights to the market (at least that is the way it appears to me). It is regulated as a "novel food ingredient."

Treha™ is made from corn starch.

I could see minimally distruptive grains with uncooked trehalose confection spreads paired with Yera Mate mix infusion for the health conscious who want something nice for tea.  Replacing some of the agave or glycerine in the Carob extract product might lead to a great confection.

The whole is not just the sum of the parts.
Posted by: C_Sharp, Saturday, February 4, 2012, 6:18pm; Reply: 30
I noticed that the company that developed the Treha™ product for Cargill also sells Trehalose SG, for use in the pharmaceutical industry (mostly for eye drops).

This product is supposed to be more pure.

Specification sheet:

Neuro issues are definitely aided by better autophagy - from reading several articles on Pubmed...  The brain is largely nerve tissue, so it should be helped greatly by increased autohagy.  

Dr. D. commented that age spots were lightening after a couple of weeks use of Trehalose and grapefruit juice.

I would treat quercetin the same as green tea for the purposes of keeping it away from trehalose. Quercetin, green tea, coffee all act in ways that are somewhat opposed to trehalose, antioxidants are going to prevent the destruction of cells and trehalose is the clean-up crew promoting autophagy.

I don't think it is possible to matter what brand it happens to be... Trehalose is trehalose. There are only two molecules per bit of it. It might come from corn but it is indigestible and so far from resembling food... To me it seems like there shouldn't even be traces of anything left in it.

I had some from LEM, now I have some from Swanson. The D-Ribose is a sugar that gives life to cells (energy) and then you open the opportunity for them to function well with Trehalose. The combination is going to promote function of cells well, where as just Trehalose is going to detox them.

You could combine large amounts of Trehalose, say like 1-2 lbs, with one bottle of D-Ribose. (6 to 1 relationship) and then some citrus pectin (won't probably be as good as NAP's modified version, at 12 to 1). A reason to buy a huge amount of it is if you want to use it as a sweetener, on skin, etc. The recommended amount from NAP per day isn't that high, and will last quiet awhile.

I've been wondering about all the other antioxidants that those of us using supplements are taking, such as vitamins C and E, curcumin, selenium, ginger, carnosine -- just for starters.  There are a lot of antioxidants and to give Trehalose the best conditions for benefiting us, I don't know how much we need to avoid taking it around any of these.

I'm not sure that it is due to "antioxidant" effects that the caution is given.  In reading some articles related to autophagy, quercetin is affecting some of the same pathways as Trehalose.  It is possible that Dr. D. is shifting the input time to make sure there is not over-stimulation of this pathway...

Moreover, functional studies revealed that quercetin activated autophagy by modulation of Akt-mTOR signaling and hypoxia-induced factor 1α (HIF-1α) signaling.

More reading is required for me to get even a basic understanding of the pathway, but it is a start...

I only have a really vague idea, we need a bio chem person to come explain it in layman's terms ;)

I do know that trehalose is supposed to be helping to re-fold mis-folded proteins (guess this happens quit often) and this is what wikipedia has to say about antioxidants
Quoted Text
An antioxidant is a molecule capable of inhibiting the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that transfers electrons or hydrogen from a substance to an oxidizing agent. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions. When the chain reaction occurs in a cell, it can cause damage or death to the cell. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions. They do this by being oxidized themselves, so antioxidants are often reducing agents such as thiols, ascorbic acid, or polyphenols.[1]

I can somehow see a conflict of interest there if the two were in the same place at the same time.

This is probably way off, so go for it Joe, find us the truth!

Yeah, it's a topic that we need some guidance on.  :)  I know I take lots of antioxidants in many forms, as well as things like blueberries.

For the time being, I'm just taking Trehalose once a day, first thing in the morning, 1 Tb.  I don't know of another time of day when I would be sure of not having antioxidants in my stomach.

BUT a week ago I had a spot on the bottom of my heel.. that was affected by walking on hard stone all day.. and it was painful for three days.. then I took TREHALOSE for 3 days and now the pain is gone.. and I have full feeling in the area.

I may have developed a spot of pain from eating avoids (expected issues with 1 apple a day and cinnamon for three weeks)  yet when I took the Trehalose complex, I could FEEL a band around my head on several days after taking it..

I wonder/hope if it will remove my near every day 6 hour headache????? I have not had one since 3 days.. but that happens every few weeks.. then it starts again.. but now I am looking towards no headache as a POSITIVE 'side effect' .
I will report on that............................   got a headache today so I will keep testing..

Apples have loads of Quercetin.. would you therefore not eat apples??

Interestingly I take quercetin supplement from Dr D some time.. I wonder as I also wonder if apples and cinnamon makes me less 'craving' because of the quercetin?..

I did not eat on apple yesterday (first day after 3 weeks on 1 apple a day)and was long after dinner looking for way more food that I should not have had.. finally I took some Trehalose in pineapple and then I was good again..

Trehalose is interesting stuff..  

confusing info..

but trust Dr D..... I do..

Trehalose goes well with coffee and tea.------ as mentioned in
http://metamodern.com/2010/09/15/trehalose-autophagy-and-brain-repair-sweet/

so it gets complicated..

I think we need to invest in this product .. could be the next BIG thing..

does it have to cost so much? well it would not be APPRECIATED IF IT WERE CHEAP......
......I would like to use it like sugar.. by the boat load.. I wonder what would be bad about it in the sugar shaker.. is more good or bad..

very hopeful.. that my brain will function better,  but sorry I had a headache today again..so still no cure for that..to bad.. but I am hopeful long term.

Actually where does Trehalose come from? and is all the same? can it be home made?.. I like the sugar 'feel' of it.

For the purposes of Trehalose interaction, Dr. D. recommends not having quercitin or green tea for at least 1/2 hour.  It doesn't mean that they can't be eaten at all...

It is interesting that Trehalose stopped your craving...  I wonder if it is the sugar in the apple that has stopped your craving - ie, you aren't getting enough carbohydrates in your diet without eating the apple.  Your body needs a certain amount of carbs to function properly, so maybe you have been shorting it because of the diabetes "label".

well I am not certain about the apple thing (my avoid) with cinnamon neutral).. but I seem to have 99% less cravings.. for now still testing as it regards my diabetes.. for another week..  

I am curious to see what works..

But I had a headache today so the Trehalose has not PREVENTED that yet..  BUT I AM having interesting reactions in my Neuropathy in the legs.. the calf skin is reacting..  

the Trehalose complex is doing a great job 'replacing' sugar .. ia there a prohibition against taking more?  I need to put it in the salt shaker .. that way I can use it on many foods, (like sugar) but not overload..

I wish to get lemons as that is what Dr D suggests.  maybe the Trehalose will make them sweet enough to drink more of..

It is good that you are seeing benefits from the Trehalose.

I don't know how humid the air is where you are, but the Trehalose complex starts to stick together in the bottle when I just open it and close it right away.  I couldn't have it in a shaker or open bowl without it being one clump.

Dr. D. stated in a blog that he was drinking it in grapefruit juice, as this is a complimentary pair - ie, they help each other do better.

yes to grapefruit .. love it.. now I can eat it even easier..

Thanks for the heads up about humidity.. I actually noticed that too.. but maybe I could put one of those little packets in to keep it going for a day.. it would be a nice way to have it handy..finally a SUGARY taste that is good for me..  :o ;D

Interesting thread on Trehalose!!  :o :o
Amazing stuff it appears.. I will order it today right away!

Yes, I agree, we could do with some guidance in how and when and after what to take Trehalose and for what (if not all ailments!) we can take it..

I would love to see this product implemented in the Health Protocols!!

I have a friend with a benign braintumor which ultimately will not need surgery for the time being.. She will come for some foodadvice.. I think Trehalose will help tremendously when with cancer???  Autophagy of cancerous cells with the aid of Trehalose!! Sounds great..

We could do with some advice.. :)

From what I have read and heard (mostly from Dr. D.), a person with more illness will create more mis-folded proteins.  Trehalose triggers autophagy, which is the clean-up of said mis-folded proteins.  Eliminating the mis-folded proteins from inside a cell makes the cell more healthy - less sluggish, less subject to illness.  As more cells get more healthy, illness will be driven out, so less mis-folded proteins will be made.  Ultimately, there will be a lower mis-folded protein load to clean-up as a maintenance task.

Here is a search that provides a lot of information to digest:

Quoted from Goldie

I think it best to follow the label directions, unless under some direction that says otherwise.  There is only so much cleaning a sick body can do, and there is only so much help a healthy body needs...

While I don't think more will hurt you, I don't see a need to waste money.

Quoted from Goldie
for daibetes .. will it make a difference? HOW

This works at a cellular level, so any cells that need to clean house are helped.  Specifically, in the autophagy talk, Dr. D. talks about the clogged receptors using the tape in the ash tray analogy.  Autophagy helps to clean the receptors so they can accurately sense sugar / insulin levels again.

Quoted from Goldie
Immune wise, will it show improvements? by what means.. ..

Brain .. any side effects?

Immune - receptors and nerve cells...
Brain - almost all nerve cells, so it is helped greatly.

dry skin, rashes - if everything else - digestion, brain, nerves, is working better, this has to get better...  I suppose it is just a priority thing.

How about mixing it in the Sip Right Tea as a sweetener?

To me the Type O Sip Right is bitter when warm or hot.
I am hoping to warm the tea and then add the Trelahose.

I'm sure it's ok but I just want to know for sure.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience with Trehalose Spring! I just ordered 2 small containers of it. I can't wait to see what kind of results I have.  :)

Also, I totally get what you mean about your neighbor. I have several people in my life that I care a great deal for that have no regard for what they put in or on their body. It's frustrating to say the least.

You're welcome, Amazone! Oh, me, when I think of so many who are struggling around us (with their health, with what the economy has done to them, etc.) it makes you want to just pass this out to them! There are times, you know, when you would just like to be rich, and this is one of them for me! I feel almost guilty I am feeling so much better..... Normally, I wouldn't touch sugar like this with a ten foot pole. In fact, I have a canister of sugar that has not been opened in YEARS and it is in the back of a cabinet. I do use a tiny bit of agave and beet syrup. Thankfully, no one in my family is addicted to sugar. And going by the "sugar swoons" I used to have years ago if I ate this much sugar without a considerable amount of food, it is amazing that I don't have any sort of feeling like that after having Trehalose. And my weight was down again this AM! (hugegrin)

This is correct.  The body doesn't absorb or make very much of the enzyme (trehalase) needed to break apart the Trehalose bond to free the 2 glucose molecules.

No doubt, people are being observed very closely, as usual, at the clinic who have been taking this. That would be a pretty good "trial" of a variety of people in my opinion. I know one thing for sure, I would lot rather take this than anything found in a drug store. I have never used any of that stuff that didn't cause some sort of problems. I don't think that Trehalose is behaving like regular sugar at all in my body because I would have noticed a drop in my blood sugar later - which I haven't at all. Not once. That makes me very happy too!  :D

Well, since you mentioned it the other day, I have noticed that my tongue is looking healthier, and my energy is out of sight. In fact, I have had so much energy that I was afraid I was not going to be able to calm down enough to sleep at night, but that has not been the case at all! Drop off to sleep right away! I have been doing some pretty heavy yard work, every day except when it has been raining, and get up in the morning without any aches or pains whatsoever (and remember, I am almost as old as you are, Goldie!) (smile) I don't want to eat as much as I did before in spite of all the extra activity. Strangely enough, other sweeteners don't appeal to me at all anymore. I don't have a clue what is going on inside that Dr. D. has talked so much about - only more time will tell me anything about that. And I like the fact that I am losing weight too.

I could almost have written your post for you, Joe! I think I already mentioned feeling almost guilty about feeling so good, and the reason I said that is because I know there are people on this board who are having a really rough time, and it is possible, not necessarily a given, that it will take longer for them to see any significant results from taking Trehalose. That makes me feel sad, but I understand from my own experience that when the body begins to get the upper hand on some of these health issues, it can soar! I have been putting forth a greater effort than ever before for the last several months to get my stomach in better shape, and I think that is part of the reason that I have responded so quickly to Trehalose. That old saying about something "hitting the spot" couldn't describe any better my feelings about Trehalose, and what it is doing for me! I hope I get to read sooner rather than later that your body is finally breaking out of that toxic prison!

Great! You wouldn't believe the mess I am in right now with my "vision!" I had my eyes checked a few months ago and only recently got the new glasses. I was afraid the prescription was too strong since I have been on SWAMI and doing so much better, so I went to another doctor to have it checked just to be sure. He felt that it was all right (without doing another checkup) and against my better judgement, I went ahead and got the glasses. Well, I CANNOT wear them! They nearly drove me crazy for four weeks, and I just couldn't take it anymore so I am back to wearing my old ones. I will see the doctor next week, and they promised that they will do everything they can to get this right. The problem now is I'm thinking that in a few months my vision may be even better than ever since I'm taking Trehalose! And I wouldn't doubt it because I can already tell a big difference. But how can I complain!?  :D I explained all this about my health to someone at the doctor's office this week, and she thoroughly agreed that this could affect my vision. So we will see! No pun intended!

Unless a person has a real objection to anything sweet, I don't know how they could possibly dislike it.
I got some trehalose yesterday, and it's not nearly as sweet as table sugar, honey, or agave syrup.  I took my first dose today.

Quoted from Possum
Absolutely no chance that anyone could be weird enough be able to make or absorb that enzyme, is there?
I'd expect there to be a known range for trehalase production in the human body, and that the recommended dose is padded enough to cancel that out so that enough is left to do what it's supposed to do.

TJ, you have to be kidding!! The sweetness is astounding to me. What sort of taster are you!? I haven't had any table sugar in so long I couldn't tell you what it tastes like, but Trehalose is much sweeter than honey or agave to me. Honey has something about it that just turns me off and agave is simply okay. If I didn't know Trehalose Complex was good for us, I wouldn't have ANY of it because it is so sweet. (It is like - do you mean to tell me that I can have T H A T!?)It is very good with the sour taste of grapefruit, though.

If I remember correctly, Trehalose has ribose in it. I just found some ribose in my cupboard and decided to use it up as a clinic I go to serves hot beverages for their clients and they have no sugar...but a canister of D-Ribose. It gives one energy, yet does not feed candida despite how sweet it is. I am considering making some type of nut cluster treat that I dehydrate and will use some of this in it.

I will eventually get the Trehalose for all of the other ingredients and to 'renew' my cells.

Spring, your great experience with Trehalose is contagious...I am looking forward to trying it without reservation!   ;D

Ok TJ.. the sugar substitute trehalose -not the supplement combo of the Complex - I have questions ...other than replace sugar what else does it do for you? I will be curious... so few tell what TC actually does.  Like I said those who are used to eating sugar will find this nice as a healthier replacement.  On a daily basis how much of it are you eating?  For TC I only get 4x 1/4 teaspoons on my 1/4 grapefruit.  I will be interested to see how many uses you will make out of it / will you make rice pudding? put it on salad or on rice cake sandwiches? are you using it as a 'diet' item or as 'sugar'?  

and most important... as on experiment ... what are you expecting from it?  what will make it worth the price?   Should I buy a pound and share it with overweight kids in the family..  Should I use it to make things more kids like sweet and try to serve them vegetables in some way with trehalose?  how might it help them?  

These kids eat very few vegetables. But I took them to dinner the first time yesterday and they ate little enough, so I can not really figure where they get their weight from ... other then pasta starches.. so stupid.  

I wish there was a CHILDRENs cooking ability BTD COOK BOOK for KIDS.. to cook fun foods .. They might be O (I think)  I wonder if the on line books would be fun?? I think I will order one and  have it printed at a local store and make a gift of it for the twins birthday. Worth a try.. you just encouraged me to do so.. TJ thanks.. I needed that.

Sugar and wheat are very high in calories, and most kids eat enough of it to keep them plump.  Just look at the way the majority of people eat.  The bread is enough to keep their bodies well "fed".  And then they add sugar on top of that and man.  I'm not saying it's good food, I'm saying that most people eat enough of those two foods to the point that they would not lose weight.  My guess is when people keep eating like this, it will eventually end up biting them in the you know where.  Many vegetables have very little calories.  But lots of good value.  And if there is one thing I noticed, is that a lot of people in the world, adults included, really don't like vegetables.  Look  at the commercials out there for V-8 juices and such.  They're always making it out like it's gross to eat a plate of veggies and it would just be easier to turn to a drink or supplement to replace it.  Pish posh.  

IMHO, I see a culture addicted to wheat, sugar, and things that might give them fuel in the short term, but probably do more damage in the long run.  I used to be one, so, I'm not judging.  I'm just really glad I learned how to eat better.  And I think my family is better off for it.  Because I'm the cook.  My kids eat stuff that most people totally turn their nose up at.  Even at our church, everything revolves around sugar parties.  Ice cream socials.  Dessert night.  Cakes at every oppportunity.  Candy at AWANA.  It really is irritating.

Dr. D adds other ingredients to TC that are complimentary to the trehalose to increase its effectiveness, just like he does with all his supplements.  I expect it to do the same thing as TC only not as effectively.  I don't expect to see any dramatic, visible improvements immediately.  It seems like a supplement that works to gradually help the body heal long-term damage and dysfunction, so that's what I'm looking for.  Any other benefit will just be icing on the cake.  I can't justify the cost of TC.  This stuff I got was $10 for one lb.  Today is only my second day using it.  I just used it as a supplement today and yesterday, not as a sweetener.  The serving scoop is about 5 gm, and I'm just using one daily.  I don't yet know what the optimal daily amount is.  Unfortunately I don't know what it's sourced from.  I'll probably find out it's sourced from corn; I didn't even think about that when I bought it, but even if it is, the processing has probably eliminated most of the corn lectin.

So I had this thought ( After taking Trehalose for a week  ;) ) that since Trelahose is a double glucose molecule that it would be an ideal attraction for Lectins.  So that would mean it has one more benefit to improve your health.

The cheap way to produce trehalose is to use enzymes to split corn starch (long chains of glucose) into two glucose units.  

The expensive way is to extract it from mushrooms.

I did notice one organization selling trehalose claiming to make it from tapioca starch instead of corn starch.

I do not know how Swanson product is produced. I looked on their site and could not find information, but I did not email to find out.  For what they sell it for they are not using mushrooms as a source.

I imagine the cheaper a product is the more likely it is to be made from and the less likely that it is purified to remove contaminants.

Their suggestion is 1 teaspoon twice a day. I wouldn't know how to use it as regular sugar because I don't use sugar anyway. I use a tad of agave and maybe a tablespoon of beet syrup in a week. So I'm not really chomping at the bit to increase my intake over these 2 teaspoons I'm taking now.

JJR, I was thrilled to see your comments above about how sugar is the focus of events for children. I totally agree! It was a red flag to me before I began my SWAMI journey recently, but now it just makes me angry. I get so frustrated having to limit my kids constantly when we're at school events, church events, AWANAS (we do that too), driving through the bank ("no thank you, we don't want any suckers") & even our tailor has a giant bowl full of candy. I know 100% that it's worth it & my husband & I explain the reasons why to them in a kind, loving way. But, it's still frustrating. I'll end my rant now! :)

Now, to get back onto the topic of this thread, I've taken Trehalose Complex from NAP for 2 days now & I haven't seen any changes. I'll update this thread if & when I do. I think it's sweet, but not super sweet. I didn't want to add it to my grapefruit because I love it sour with pink salt. I've been drinking my Trehalose mixed into a small amount of Simply Grapefruit juice.

No.  Regular glucose is easily metabolized by the body.  Trehalose is a double glucose molecule that has a bond that we humans can not easily break and metabolize.  

Do not confuse regular sugar / glucose with Trelahose  :)

I have not looked at headaches as 'detox' rather for the need to make some sort of adjustment.

The absence of headaches to me is my aim, but I can not fault anything I am doing for getting them.  They just 'seem' near daily exercise in 'futility' to remind me how NICE LIFE IS when I don't have any pain.  

I am 'feeling' as if TC is working toward my goal of (when ??)) the 'reminder' work is done  ::) and the body can relax  :K) enough to just let me be ;)..  I think (my body's nerve center) might, possibly, eventually, stumble,and find it's way, in that direction  :-/ seeing that I am doing something to help it along.LOL .

I do see other areas where it might be working as well.  My neuropathy -the nerve endings- might be more receptive to self healing..  time will tell.  It might even be the reason to sleep a little better? less tossing and waking?    

My tongue is most definitely CLEAR now! never saw it's skin before!  Brain fog, I experience a slight lessening of 'emotional' fear - might have more emotional courage????  It works on my eye balls more then on my eye sight - SO FAR..  I have a little dry skin on my arms I usually don't have.. is that a symptom?  MY fingernails that where breaking might be getting a litttttle stronger?  I 'think' my sinuses are clearer.. I am just not certain yet, but it is doing something!!!

You see, I just don't know YET.   But I am in favor of trying.  I will buy more of it and just replace it as 'my' personalized 'sweet' spot in life!.   I don't ask much of life or TC... just better this, that, and all else.... including radiant health ;D   TC is indeed sweet medicine! I even like this thread.. it's life confirming.  I think my sinuses are clearer.. you see I am not certain yet, but it is doing something!!!

No doubt in my mind that it should be tried by all how suffered from taking pain and other pills, and or those who are weakened somehow from all the poisonous things we 'took' to deal with our lives..

Trehalose, the way Dr. D. uses it, triggers internal cellular cleaning.  

It is my understanding that lectins attach to the outside of the cell.  I don't know if Trehalose has the same "attachment" ability for lectins to grab onto to or not, but this is not the mechanism Dr. D. is recommending it for.

I had taken some on several different occasions during the last few years, but it only made me horribly sleepy in the day time, and I couldn't sleep at night - which did everything BUT relax my body. I tried some the last couple of days just to see if anything had changed and didn't notice any daytime sleepiness at all, and I have been more relaxed. I can't help but wonder if taking it the same days as the Trehalose made all the difference. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised at anything!!

You may have to make that decision yourself...

It shouldn't matter where the Trehalose comes from, IF it is pure.  Unfortunately, it is hard to tell how pure it is without lab testing - which I don't know how to request and don't want to pay for...  So the only answer I know is to either do without or try some and see if you can see benefit or harm from it...

It would be an ideal attractant for whatever it attracts.

Quoted Text
Lectins are sugar-binding proteins that are highly specific for their sugar moieties.


We are used to looking for binding to specific antigens such as Fucose and Galactose.

I'm not sure what Trehalose attracts, or if it would include those attracted to glucose.

hope this quote by Dr D can help clear up Tom s 'assertion':

Quoted Text
In my lecture on MTOR independent autophagy I made mention of the role of o-glycosylation as a relatively under-appreciated epigenetic factor, via both
histone alteration and proteosomal tagging for ubiquinination. Ubiquinination is considered an epigenetic function due to the fact that it is the major
pathway for the degradation of most transcription factors.

Here we see two major epigenetic functions that react directly to nutrient variation.

Like most GlcNAc conjugates, UDP-Glc-NAc reacts with a wide variety of dietary lectins, including WGA (wheat germ agglutinin) and a host of others.

As I drink green tea more than once daily, I'd appreciate if someone would tell me:

a) How long should I wait after drinking green tea before I take trehalose?

and

b) How long should I wait after taking trehalose before I drink green tea?

I may have missed this info along the threads. Thanks!

Could TC (the complex Dr D's form) work to make things slide AWAY.. ? thus it can not adhere to what it otherwise would.. like my tongue.. why did the white go away?  was it absorbed or just slid away??  it's gone.. that is all I KNOW for sure from Trehalose Complex in 6 weeks Attn he most.

I would love to have a clear understanding IF Trehalose without the Complex.. as in plain trehalose sugar substitute...  would be a superior sugar to use any way??

It is hard to say what the white was specifically, so I can't answer that.
There are 3 active components in TC:
Trehalose - stimulates cells to clean house.
Ribose - provides cellular energy.
Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) - combines with metals, etc. to carry them out of the body.
I propose that some combination of the above allowed greater cellular health on the tongue and whatever was there was either killed or detached from the now healthier cells and has moved further through the digestive tract or has been eliminated from the body.

Quoted from Goldie

I say "Yes", for these reasons.
  
Trehalose provides the sweet taste, but very little of it is broken down to be usable as glucose.

Trehalose stimulates autophagy (reuse of intracellular, improperly combined protein/sugar molecules) without requiring calorie restriction.  By stimulating autophagy, degenerative diseases are reduced as the cells function better.

Goldie - There is a privately owned clinic in our city and the doctor is a medical doctor who is Chinese and practices both modalities as well as other alternative care. He sees many patients who are diabetic and his recommendation is D-Ribose as a sugar substitute for all of his patients wether they are diabetic or not. It's great in water and lemon juice. I don't crave sweets much so it's not something that I use a lot but I am considering making some type of raw nut clusters and using this for sweetener as my husband likes his treats a bit sweet. Also this doctor said that Ribose does not feed candida.

But, I will definitely be buy Dr. D's Trehalose for it's health benefits and use that as he recommends.

Dr D's Trehalose Complex has D-Ribose in it and also Citrus Pectin..  Thanks twice confirmed now - and I am continuing with it.. great.  

I only take one teaspoon a day, so I am not concerned about my diabetes... I have reduced my bad numbers to near 'normal' so I am looking to get off all or most of my metformin.. I am doing the same with the outlook on cholesterol and triglycerides.. I am working toward TOTAL normalcy.. I am doing quite well ... ;D

and..I am ordering some plain trehalose as sugar substitute for some over weight kids --  8)

JJR, I was thrilled to see your comments above about how sugar is the focus of events for children. I totally agree! It was a red flag to me before I began my SWAMI journey recently, but now it just makes me angry. I get so frustrated having to limit my kids constantly when we're at school events, church events, AWANAS (we do that too), driving through the bank ("no thank you, we don't want any suckers") & even our tailor has a giant bowl full of candy. I know 100% that it's worth it & my husband & I explain the reasons why to them in a kind, loving way. But, it's still frustrating. I'll end my rant now! :)

Now, to get back onto the topic of this thread, I've taken Trehalose Complex from NAP for 2 days now & I haven't seen any changes. I'll update this thread if & when I do. I think it's sweet, but not super sweet. I didn't want to add it to my grapefruit because I love it sour with pink salt. I've been drinking my Trehalose mixed into a small amount of Simply Grapefruit juice.




I allow my kids to have a treat 2x a week.  Something small, and of whatever junk they want.  It's funny though.  The discipline I use on them has rubbed off.  My daughter opted to not eat her treat this weekend, because she's fighting a cold and she has a ballet recital this week and she didn't want to get sicker.  They learn from our example.  I don't ever eat sweets other than a little bit of dark chocolate a few times a week, so they see my example.  PLUS, when they eat too much junk food, they feel it.  And they don't like it.  I'm not sure why it is God has shed light on the subject for us, but so many Christians seem to be in the dark about it.  I pray things will change, but I don't think they will.  So many are in my opinion, addicted.  But, so was I at one point.  So I'm not judging.  I don't even get all that mad about it any more.  But it does get irritating when the subject comes up all the time or someone acts like we're "fanatics" for not letting our kids indulge at every single meal, like they let their kids do.  To each his own.

Quoted from Ribbit


Nobody would go to something called a salad social.  

Think of what the invitation would look like:



BYOB: Bring Your Own Broccoli

You and your family are invited to a green social!  Lettuce provided.  Please bring toppings.  No store-bought dressings, please, out of respect for those who don't eat GMOs.  Vita Mixes provided as well for those of you who drink socially.


I never said it had to revolve around GOOD food.  But why does BAD food have to be the focus?  How about just "Socializing"?  Or Bible study?  We did a night where we played games at church.  They did have treats, but it wasn't the main reason or thing to do.  I was pleased about that.  I don't mind people indulging.  It's fun to.  But the problem is I see people indulging ALL THE TIME.  And then expecting us to do the same (not everyone does that, only some).  And I also see people probably putting more emphasis on these foods than probably should be.  

But you do make a good point.  On one hand, "Whatever gets the people to come" is probably a good thing.  But then where do you draw the line.  Beer, brats and Bible study?  Or, come smoke a joint and study Revelations with us?  It will enhance the experience tremendously.  Or, OK, let's just do, "Get a sugar buzz and watch the kids climb the walls while we try to visit and talk about God".  So maybe treats aren't as bad as alcohol and drugs, but I think there is a fine line that is being crossed.  Possibly.  I could be all wet too, and am just being anal because I can't eat treats without feeling lousy.   :o ;D

He let them know that he thought everyone knew that you didn't need to eat ice cream when you had a cold! We had no idea that he had become such a firm believer in avoiding sugar when you are sick!

Hopeful, I was shocked this AM when I saw that my legs were not chapped anymore from this dry, windy weather we are having!! I had not used anything at all on them. I am telling all my friends about this wonderful stuff. I read where one man was putting it in his liquid shower soap and raving about what it was doing for his skin. He had put it in his blender to make something similar to powdered sugar. He said it left no sugary residue on his skin at all. Of course, we already know that they have been putting it in commercial skin products. No telling what they have been charging for it either!

Spring, I am thrilled with the amazing results that you've been getting from Trehalose!  ;D

It just dawned on me that I quit drinking black tea full of avoids about the same time that I started Trehalose. So, I could possibly be seeing some results from both mixed together. I guess only time will tell.  :)

This morning when I stirred Trehalose Complex into my lemon juice/water, I decided to pat a little on the backs of my hands. No wonder people want to bathe in this - it makes the skin feel just like velvet!! With no residue at all. Another WOW!!

I was looking at some pictures this morning of women whose faces had been treated with a regimen using many great ingredients including Trehalose. I don't know how much editing had been done, or not, of course, but those women looked absolutely beautiful!  I think the harsher the climate, the more dramatic the results would be.

Kids pick up a lot.  They're little minds pick up so much and it's great to see when they use their brains.  And sometimes their intuition is great.  I constantly am trying to teach my kids to turn on their brain when they do stuff.  Sometimes, it's not always the case though.  hehehehhe

The executive summary:

No breading mix on your chicken here, but you need to shake some trehalose on your food and then bake yourself in a infrared sauna.

I find my best "sweat therapy" when I work in my yard! With sweat pouring off me, I know that a whole lot of toxins are leaving my body. I sweat summer and winter out there! I sweat so much that my clothes are white with salt. If people don't have a yard to work in or are not physically able to even if they did, a sauna could be the answer for them. But there are some cautions to consider if people have certain health conditions.

I have found since taking Trehalose that I need to drink about a third more water than I normally do.

                 Just as an aside,I have been on the type O diet for a year,followed by my swami hunter
             diet for two and a half years, with great success.My digestion has been very good during
             this time.Maybe all I can do is rely on the benefits of green tea,instead.
                 Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

I have been on first one and then the other of Dr. D.'s diets for twelve years or so. I only had a stool that was rather softer than usual and minimal flatulence once when I first started taking Trehalose. However, I also take Intrinsa so that may have something to do with my digestion handling Trehalose so well. I have absolutely no problems with it.

Trehalose may be letting you know that there is something you still need to address about your digestive system. Especially in the large intestine. I have had stomach problems nearly all my life, and the diets have helped me tremendously, but Intrinsa along with the Trehalose has cleared up the rest of my problems there. It is so wonderful not to have that pain!!

You mentioned a dozen times - was that over a period of six days or so? I wish you would try it for another week and see what happens. I assume that you took it away from your green tea..... Have you ever taken Intrinsa?

The main time I notice hoarseness is when I am having a lot of stress. It gets really bad then.

Hi Patti and welcome!  :)
I'd suggest that you begin with a very small amount daily, like 1/4 of recommended dosage (or even less).  Gradually build up over a period of some weeks.

      Spring-Thank you for your reply.I agree about how helpful Intrinsa is.I have been on Intrinsa,
                 Ara6,and PolyfloraO for four years.My digestion has been good during that time.
                 However,maybe there is an unsuspected problem that I am unaware of.This journey
                 holds so many surprises.

      Victoria-I will definately try your suggestion of reducing the dose to a quarter or less and
                  slowly work up from there.I had tried just a half dosage several times to no avail.
                  but probably not for a long enough period.I guess I just got scared that I was doing
                  some damage to my system.Thanks for your help.

Patti, it is so true that we do get those surprises now and then! I have even noticed that the reaction to avoids, which I normally avoid like the plague if I possibly can, are much more noticeable since I have been taking Trehalose! Imagine that!

For instance, I had some cheese that was a super food for me on the first SWAMI diet, so the other day I decided to have some of it in scrambled eggs which I love! (Even though it is an avoid for me now!  :o) WOW! I was almost bent double for about a hour with pain!! And that was so even though I had taken two Lactaid before I ate it!! I knew every step of the way where that cheese was until it finally got out of my system!! Before I started taking Trehalose, there was only a little discomfort that lasted just a few minutes. Mama Trehalose was simply looking out for me!! WOW! (sunny)
AND, BTW, cottage cheese which is a super food for me does not bother me in the least even though I eat it without Lactaid!! (I am super lactose intolerant!)

HAS ANYONE bought plain Trehalose and used it IN what? any visble signs that its good for you? where did you buy it?

Patti welcome.. Are you taking the TC with grapefruit or lemon? are those on your food list?  

for me the grapefruit is near a addiction.. I slice it in 1/2 inces and then sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon gofer the fruit.. several times a day.. making it 1 teaspoon.. but I was advised recently that I can have 2 spoons..

I ate popcorn on avoid the other day and almonds a diamond  which give me heartburn..  and still I came down with Asthma and a cough from my upper chest, feeling nasty.. I took a antihistamine to avoid a nasal drip I felt coming on.. ..

I also have cold feet at least once a day..

I think all of this hangs together.. food first.. emotions second.. Like I wish I did not SWALLOW bad foods.. my bronchial agree.. I am a coward with some mental assertion issues, so the cold feet make all the sense!

I need to work on that..   BUT TC is going to be with me.  

I did break up the addiction to grapefruit to one or two slices a day instead of a whole one.. just to put TC on that by itself.  and with allowable pineapple and or papaya for more liquid fruit, seems to be less abrasive in my upper stomach .. I also make celery juice now..

I will order plain Trehalose from some place.. and replace it as sugar in the house.. making lemon juice water or tea maybe when it gets warmer..

So you see we can make choices..  and we learn from all of them.. all the best..

As I recall TJ & DOS indicated they bought some from Swansons.

http://www.swansonvitamins.com/SWU478/ItemDetail

Endowment for medical research and/or their affiliates have been mentioned several times. I do not recall anyone saying they had bought the product.

http://www.endowmentmed.org/content/view/902/122/

Lem's trehalose was mentioned at some point by DOS, but I do not recall the retailer he purchased from. http://www.opentip.com/Home-Kitchen/Lem-Trehalose-Oz-For-Pounds-Meat-p-3686929.html

Here is a vendor, that is fairly economical (That I do not recall anyone mentioning):

Goldie, before you kick the barn door down, I think you are going to have to bite the bullet and be your own experiment (or detection agency)!! Nobody can tell us exactly what problems we have in our bodies that Trehalose needs to address. For instance, I have just finished a Clorox job (horrors to the nth after my bad reaction in the past), and it is going to be interesting to see what Mama Trehalose comes up with in this situation, if anything. Will report later.....

Okay, I'm back this morning to report that last night I poured sweat like crazy most of the night, but I feel fine this morning except for a very slight headache. Hopefully, that is the end of it..... I hate Clorox but sometimes there is no way around using it.

I was wondering about PLAIN Trehalose to be used in place of sugar.. by the pound..

So far the Trehalose COMPLEX seems to really be helpful.. I would normally be sick from a number of causes.. my sinus would be bad and more for a week...

Instead I feel as if I can overcome this allergy to blossoming oaks and popcorn attack .. in just a day, two or three.  I feel it is working to have cleared out the sinus much faster and allows for some less water accumulation.. But that is from the complex version.. I am pleased that I can actually tell that it works. I just reordered containers.

I am going to order the plain from one of the above links and then see what I could do with it.. like make rice balls with sweetness added.  Or serve it to my friends as sugar..

NOW if I could figure out why I feel so cold by 3 am that my teeth chatter that would be nice.. or throughout the day.. why am I going from cold to hot and frozen feet again.. I am waiting for that to get cleared up.  ---------

--------????? AM I having fewer HOTFLASHES?? instead of every hour and a half.. maybe only 3-4  a day?  Could it be with the TC as that is all that I am doing?????

I have been on Trehalose for only about a week and a half. I noticed my hair ( I have very thick coarse hair), and skin are softer. Heels of feet, face and back of hands.  Looks like a couple of scars are shrinking in size and lightening in color. Feel like I have a little more energy too. I think I will try mixing with facial moisturizer and see what happens. Dr D may have to sell this stuff by the ton, although storage could be difficult. ;D

Also wish they would sell in individual packets for travel. TSA frowns on white powdery looking stuff in bags in your carry on. Had a problem with laundry soap once until they tasted it, that was funny stuff. LOL

It may be the combination of the Trehalose and Ribose, but I'm experiencing a steadiness of energy that I have not been blessed with in the past decade.  It is remarkable!  This is not like the false energy from stimulants, but the calm, clear energy of youth.  (Dare I even say that?)  ;)

This is like a lightening of the fog - not just mentally, but physically, too.  At this point, it comes and goes, but steadily is increasing over the weeks.  And I'm seeing some lightening of 'age spots'.

Just wonderful!! The only time I have noticed my energy lagging was when my blood pressure dropped. That is the reason that I am easing off of the little I was taking. (I mean I eased off the BP medication!!) At first, I didn't realize it was my blood pressure. I thought I simply needed to eat something. But when that consistently didn't work, I decided, "Hey! I think this is my BP!" Sure enough it was!(sunny) Every person I know my age who has been diagnosed with high BP is on two to five different medications for it!!  :o And they still don't work very well, and the side effects....!!!!!

It also seems like some "suntan residue" dark spot areas on one side of my neck is lightening.
I also had two fatty deposits that were very sore last weekend and ended up looking very bruised.  I think the body is assimilating them.  
The body must be happy with the Trehalose Complex, as I just had to bring my dosage up from 1 teaspoon per day to 2...

I think I may gradually go up to 1 T. once a day and see how that works for me. Right now I take 1 teas. in the AM and 1 teas. during the afternoon. That is exciting about the fatty deposits!  Mine haven't turned blue, but they are getting softer.

I'm pretty happy with everything about this product so far too!!

Well, from what we read, people have been consuming Trehalose for thousands of years so it seems reasonable to me that it can't do anything but help. I'm excited about using it on mixed fruit to keep it fresh instead of ascorbic acid crystals that come from no telling what!

Another thing, I don't worry nearly as much about our grass turning brown since I know that Trehalose is actually keeping it alive until the rain comes!! (sunny)

Keeping the swelling down especially during the hot humid weather that seems to have started now is going to be important.  I would much rather lose pounds by sweating out my gardening chores than do EMS "exercise" or walking.

I used to take Pau d'Arco for swelling several years ago. It works too.  I hope you have a BP monitor to keep track of your blood pressure yourself. It is far more important than a single reading in the doctor's office.

I get this very miserable 'cold' really a allergy attack to oaks.. 3 times a year.. I am going through it again and am miserable.. No difference.. YET I seem not to have a headache.. for several days.. I am still hesitating to say it out loud.. but ...... so here goes the count.. starting May 1... I am counting the days..    that would be a big thing.. it almost feels as if the caffeine rebound has lessened.. ! but I am counting..  

On the other hand.. a day later.. I had the worst night of my life.. I mean every cell in my nose and sinus and down my throat was hurting .. I mean not just discomfort, but with all the painkillers even I sat up all night moaning.. I felt as if I was being scrubbed from the inside out,...

What would be fun is that it really could have been a scrubbing.. a real reaction for my allergy attack that by itself is enough to wish to die.  I would be happy to think that maybe this particular painful episode might have been part of a deep cleaning out of memories sludge..

I usually got through 500 tissues on the fifth night, I did that last night also, but I don't ever remember having that much pain.  I AM NOT saying that it is the TC but I am just wondering.. I am still suffering, really suffering even this morning.. and the sneezing.,.. I mean how many times can one do so? ! I am exhausted..  But would love nothing more than that the suffering should not be in vain.. if it would serve to clean out cellular stuff that has been there since the day I can remember.. it would be fine with me.. but for all of you.. just be aware.. for now.. it could be the TC or just coincidence?!?! ??)

Has anyone noticed if using the Trehalose Complex does anything in regard to sugar cravings?  That is my big weakness when attempting to follow any healthier way of eating. Does it affect the brain the way regular sugar does- or does it metabolize differently so that it tastes sweet but that's it.  I am aware of all of the other benefits- just wondering about how it affects the "sweet tooth."

There are two sugars in the Trehalose Complex.  Trehalose - most of which remains in the original state, and Ribose - which is utilized at a cellular level.  Since there is a larger proportion of Trehalose, most of the sugar in the TC will not be used as sugar, so you get the "flavor" without most of the "sugar rush".  I haven't sensed any additional sweet craving, but then again, I eat adequate amounts of protein, so don't generally crave sweets anyway...

If you get a sweet craving, eat some compliant protein and the sugar craving usually fades away.

I like the IDEA of allowed sugar taste for diabetics where otherwise there is so much prohibition against any fun in living with diabetes.  In the 2 spoons of TC a day I would not care about it being good nor bad as it has medicinal quality stuff that goes way beyond sugar..

I think it could be a 'link' in getting diabetes fixed.. meaning, possibly reverse the effects of damage to all sorts of places in the body.  

I experienced a great reduction in headaches, after the first container of TC.  I have not tried it without the COMPLEX ingredients.  Even through my usual daily  headaches (lasting 6 hours) have not gone away 100% I must say I think they have been greatly reduced in intensity, duration and frequencies.  I am hopeful that as I am taking TC that I will get rid of them completely.  I will report on that.

YET:  I had a bad allergy cold symptom episode, and during this last week repetition thereof, I have had a very intense time of it.  The pain in the cells was greater and longer lasting than any other time.  I am not certain just what it meant, but it felt very painful from IRRITATION. I don't see my allergy attacks as healing crises but possible this time there was shedding of material that I have not seen before in the same way.  I still ended up taking antihistamines and antibacterial drugs, (or I would be ill for weeks) but I also needed a drug I usually don't take called Propranalol (I think one could take other things like Benadril, but that is what I had in the house)  only twice but long enough to have it work as a calming agent /cell wise.  There was a definite difference in the course of this 'attack'..  I will see how such attacks in future will show up differently.  I feel that with the results of greatly enhanced reaction this time, that possibly by taking the TC over a long period at least a years worth, it might clean up what causes the repeated attacks in the first place.  I see the healing happening as cleaning up 'debree' leftover from when I was a infant, and having a chance at getting rid of the body memory reaction to whatever nearly killed me after I was born and has bothered me periodically ever since every 3-4 month for one week.  I am functioning by instinct here, but it just 'feels' like it is possible.  THERE was a difference this time, and in that difference (greater intensity) I hope to experience a difference as  time goes on.   I will keep track of it for the year and report on it.  In time I would like to be able to do without the repeated antibacterials.              

On the other hand if no one should care about 'negatives/positives, let me know..

I have developed an even stronger aversion to anything with regular granulated sugar in it since I started taking Trehalose. Fruits taste better than ever, and they are totally satisfying to me. I suppose I should be thankful that avoids have made me hurt one way or another without fail - almost immediately. That way I haven't had any problem at all avoiding them.

I am very sensitive to the amount of fruit I need in a day, though. If I eat more than that, I can be sure I will have problems. I don't need a "servings" guide for that.

Cristina, it is amazing that being able to focus better has been the first experience of so many. It is almost like we have found a little something right out of the Garden of Eden.

I could write the book about being suspicious and the placebo effect. I'm so suspicious of things to do with my health that even if I were put in a trial, and I was indeed using a valid product instead of the placebo, the results would have to be really noticeable for me to think anything but that I was taking the placebo! In other words, I'm really hard to convince.

Actually, my shocked surprise at the results I was getting from this stuff was the reason for the "over the top" title to this thread. As I said later on, I was looking at long-term results, not anything immediate at all.

As for being suspicious, I bought a new cereal a few weeks ago and a visitor who is on a gluten free diet was here soon after. They knew I couldn't eat corn and when they were reading the ingredients they noticed the word "grits." They associated that with corn right away, but it wasn't corn at all but buckwheat. Anyway, I told them that I didn't know how anything could possibly get past me I was so suspicious of everything I bought. (Getting stuck too many times in the past has taught me a few things.)

It is the dumbest thing, but I keep forgetting about lime! I can use lime one week and lemon the next, and once a month I can use grapefruit for a week. I love lime the best. Can't remember if the grocery has organic limes or not. Maybe they will start having them if they don't if I ask.

I can describe it as an awakening. Isn't this what life is all about? It is for me...   8)  I felt as if a bulb lit inside my head. Oddly enough, at the same day I also bought 2 new bulbs to replace the old burnt ones in the corridor and in the bedroom...  I underwent a small mental upheaval - this cleared towards the evening, so I took my 3rd tsp... I understood that I must reduce the quantity when my night sleep wasn't exactly a sleep, as the Song of Songs goes: "I am asleep and my heart is awake". This only happens when I fall in love and there's a tremendous overload of energy.  ;)  8)

Yaeli, I was having so much fun with the "overload of energy" that I simply enjoyed the ride! Needless to say, I was wondering when I was going to crash or whatever. It never happened! I wondered if I would ever be able to sleep again. That was a needless concern too.

I have taken a LOT of different supplements in the past fifty years, and I have never seen anything remotely like it. I think people may as well expect that it will change their lives..... Some sooner than others, of course.

Nevertheless, I am a great believer in taking things slow and easy with a new supplement! It horrifies me sometimes how people will throw down a big "dose" of something they have never even taken before! Whether it is a supplement or medication, I start below the recommended amount. I have reacted to 'way too many things not to be careful. I can say that my reaction to Trehalose has all been good and definitely fit just right for every occasion! I would certainly tell you if it were anything different! (smile)

TC is a medicine! I take it as such, in 1/4 spoon at a time on grapefruit slices.. .. if I take more, I feel it is 'scrubbing' my insides all over.. feels like it is 'cleaning' the vessel linings CLEAN all over.

I think I am better of switching to grapefruit juice with water.. The grapefruit seems to be becoming abrasive in my mouth... for a while I loved it ..

I don't know if the trehalose as a sugar substitute would be having the same scrubbing effect..

I do seem to have survived many days without headaches - or severely lessoned them.  That is remarkable..

I have been taking one teaspoon twice a day since fairly soon after I started. It seemed that everything came together to indicate that I was at just the right place and time for this new "supplement!" Or maybe it simply seemed that way because Trehalose just happens to be the right supplement for any time!

I didn't notice any particular cravings after I started taking it. But I have lost weight, and that was without going around hungry.

I would love to know how people with Lyme Disease respond to it.

Improved attention, perception and comprehension and refined sensuality.

For example:

I don't know how far I'll go tonight listening to the most fabulous performance of Mahler's 2nd symphony they are broadcasting right now in the Mezzo channel (European) - from a 2003 concert in Lucerne festival with Abbado (Mahler always p----s me off because he is painfully pessimist and cynical), BUT I can assure you, that never before had I such a clear, wonderful, rewarding experience listening to this magnificent work of art under the baton of Abbado, the most gentle and sensitive, heavenly talented, unbelievable conductor. Well this is no exaggeration. Incidentally, both Mahler and Abbado are Cancers (July 7th & June 26 respectively). Immense, sheer beauty.

I just got my order today and I would like to post my initial impressions.  

First of all, I would like to thank Dr. D'Adamo for adding this supplement to the NAP products because it is another pathway to healthy living for all who listen, learn, and benefit from his research.
And to Spring for initially posting about this for all of us to evaluate for ourselves whether or not this is something we should add to our daily intake.  From her post and the those posts that followed it didn't seem like a hardship at all.

When I'm looking forward to getting something from a supplement  at first I feel if this is so great than more is better.  After having read the other posts I see that it is an individual choice as to what works best and that takes time.  So as a few of you already stated you are starting at a lower dose than the 1 teaspoon 2x a day.  Let me say I see nothing wrong with that and intend to increase my dosage starting tomorrow probably to just that amount.

I took a little more than half a teaspoon at 3PM.  No spikes, no surges in energy (that I was hoping for in a way)  but - there was a noticeable mental/emotional shift.  


The shift was that most of my attention (for a very long time now) has been focused on searching for what I want from the "outside",.  For the first time, in a long time, I knew that being in my own head felt good and right.  I have ADD and get easily distracted at times.  ADD is not the only factor here.

Because of certain stresses in my last job, my environment, family issues, etc. I had a feeling that things were "out of balance" but I couldn't get a handle on it.  Knowing this to be true still didn't help or move me in a better direction.  I'm not claiming that trehalose is a panacea because I took one dose but I'm aware that the "shift" is significant for me at this time.  It is subtle yet very powerful.

These are my initial impressions.  More later.

Joy

Thanks very much for your post, Joy. After reading it, I have to say it made me have chills to think of the even greater potential of this amazing "supplement." The positive impact it could have on so many whose lives have been plagued for years with different difficulties seems immeasurable to me.

People who have suffered because of the needs of their teenage children and have found nothing to give them hope. I wonder if eventually it won't be recommended for younger children. How much worse could it be than seeing a child going around in a drugged state? I have a dear friend whose grandson has been like that for some years now. As soon as he was put on drugs, he developed black circles under his eyes among other things. Before that, he was the picture of a handsome, healthy child. Just breaks my heart..... To say nothing for what it has done to his parents, extended family and many other friends.

Thanks again for your post, Joy...

Posted by: ABJoe, Thursday, May 10, 2012, 1:47am; Reply: 300
Goldie is diabetic and she is seeing benefits from the Trehalose Complex.

Part of the benefit of Trehalose is reducing the receptor damage, which will help the body sense sugar properly and utilize insulin better...

There is very little of the enzyme to break the Trehalose bond in the body, so very little of the Trehalose can be broken down to the glucose for use in the body.  
Posted by: Spring, Thursday, May 10, 2012, 1:50am; Reply: 301
It doesn't affect my blood sugar at all that I can tell, but, then, I am not diabetic. I have had problems in the past with having my blood sugar drop sharply after having something that was very sweet that caused a spike. Several in my family have the same problem. So I think if Trehalose were going to make my blood sugar drop very low after a spike it would have shown up before now.

I do wish they sold samples of this stuff so people could try it for a few days and see for themselves how it affects them.

I mean, how are people going to simply try something when they can't return an opened container....... ???

Spring,

I surely hope there is an avenue that your friend's situation can take and that something will "click" for them concerning the grandson.   I have no idea why the child is on drugs to begin with that would cause such a physical reaction such as dark circles but I'm sure his parents are trying to resolve it as best they can.

I was functioning just fine (or so I thought) but I knew something was unbalanced in my life and I went searching in earnest to find it.  I am an excellent "listener" but the only person I couldn't hear properly was myself.  

If someone is not ready or tunes out something nothing is going to get through.

Joy, the grandson is much better on the drug than he was without, and he has been to many specialists.... But he is a shadow of what he could be. I just can't help but wonder if Trehalose could help him. They have already tried many different approaches with diets and supplements. Some have helped but just not nearly enough. I am going to tell my friend about Trehalose because we share this sort of thing anyway if we find something that seems promising, and my guess is that she will try it first and go from there.

I know that my friend is concerned about other issues, too, because she just lost a beloved sister to severe Alzheimer's. So she would be glad to hear about Trehalose for herself. I only wish I had known about this a long time ago because I have other friends a good bit older than I am who could have no doubt benefited from it if they were still actually able to learn how to use. To tell you the truth, I wonder how many nursing homes could be emptied of a lot of their residents if those people were given Trehalose!

Oh, my, I can't help but dream....!

I have no way of knowing yet how it affects the diabetes part.. the next few blood test will show that.  

OH MY - MY headache is back.. and I realized that it was reduced because I was taking other things for my allergy attack.  sorry for me and others I might have raised expectations with my hope that they would go away.

I still hope so for the future because most assuredly other things are being cleared up on the inside and should make some sort of difference.  I do know that a few days worth is not a fair trail.  If you read and try it for what you read about - I think then you will be satisfied.  IF you think it does more than is promised, you may get disappointed.  

So hang in here and see what else gets reported. for instance, taking in more grapefruit is a big change .. taking it with lime might make a difference.. and what may or may not get changed will affect way more than just this or that..  





I will give it a try, in small doses 1/4 spoons during the day for a few month and by then I can know more about what it did for me.

He has more than one problem, and he has been checked by many different specialists. The problems began to be noticeable when he was around four or five years old. At first, it seemed like hyperactivity, but it gradually progressed to other symptoms. His grandmother has worried for years that some of the problems were brought on by different young friends taking him 'way to often to get ice cream when he was so young. He was a highly intelligent, perfect, beautiful little child, and everyone loved him to death. It is just so sad..... It has aged his wonderful parents twenty years and his younger brother stays in protection mode all the time looking out for him one way or another. It is no surprise that his mother had breast cancer at a relatively young age. She has dedicated her life for years to supplying wholesome food and supplements with absolutely NO junk for her family. How all of them keep such a wonderful attitude is beyond me, because right now, even though medication is working most of the time, there does not seem to be anything in their future except to grow old trying to deal with this situation. And yet, you would never know that to look at them!

I don't think that teenagers in this condition would require anything like what people my age would need, but I can't help but wonder if a little wouldn't go a long with helping their poor brains get more focused.

Of course, having been on the diet for over twelve years, I couldn't agree with you more. But, she is a registered nurse with all the best intentions in the world. In spite of the all-too-common mindset, however, she has, through a lot of trial and error, pinpointed a lot of foods that she knows he shouldn't eat.

When you are close to a situation like this, and you have seen the full blown stress, including her mastectomy with all that entailed, it is really hard to add even a little more to the mix with sometimes humongous changes in diets, etc.. We know ourselves that if we had to learn even part of what we know on a fast track, we would get bogged down for a bit, even in the best of circumstances.

I might add, also, that through all this trauma, she has done a wonderful job of home-schooling since her son was not able to fit into a normal classroom. Both sons have excelled, though, with and through her strong leadership. During the worst of her surgical recovery and treatments, she did allow her dad to teach their classes because he is, after all, a retired college professor and well able to do so.

But, anyway, we will see how things unfold after I talk to my friend, and she has tried the supplement herself.

First, the recommended amount is 2 tsp. per day.  Which is not a huge caloric addition to a diet.

Second, the Trehalose portion of the Trehalose Complex will be used as it is, a double glucose with a strong bond, which the body is not able to utilize as glucose.  It is used to stimulate nerve healing.  

Trehalose makes up about 3/4 of the product and almost 1/3 of the remainder is modified citrus pectin, which is not a sugar, so only about 1/6 of the 2 tsp. or 1/3 teaspoon is about all of the sugar that will be used as sugar, the D-Ribose portion.

I really doubt that an extra 1/3 teaspoon of sugar per day will be a cause for weight gain.  Especially considering the benefit that the autophagy will bring.  It will probably stimulate weight loss as your cells use some of the "excess parts" sitting around in your warehouse...

Trehalose makes up about 3/4 of the product and almost 1/3 of the remainder is modified citrus pectin, which is not a sugar, so only about 1/6 of the 2 tsp. or 1/3 teaspoon is about all of the sugar that will be used as sugar, the D-Ribose portion.

I really doubt that an extra 1/3 teaspoon of sugar per day will be a cause for weight gain.  Especially considering the benefit that the autophagy will bring.  It will probably stimulate weight loss as your cells use some of the "excess parts" sitting around in your warehouse...


This is good info it should go to the other thread.. so all is in one place.. just saying..

fabulous!  The earth has just changed its axle.. sugar taste not sugar absorbed!!


Goldie, when are you getting a checkup? You have said, I think, but I can't remember when it was. You are our poster child for diabetics, so I am looking forward to seeing your results! I think it is probably hard for us to imagine how wonderful it is to have something sweet that is perfectly good for you without the worry - which you will undoubtedly confirm when you see your doctor!! I can't wait!! (hugegrin)

Your reply did not go through..

as for my blood test..  for sugar diabetes, I am near normal numbers.  I expect that in a few month I can lower my drugs to the lowest 1 pill a day.. and then after 6 month of that maybe eliminate it completely.. I was up to about 4 pills a day.. so big progress..

How I did that:  well I stick to 95% Swami Diamonds and or Beneficials.  In addition I have reduced my food intake to begin with.    I learned that I could do with less food and am trying to stay on less food intake.  Age would seem to say that this is doable for everyone who is doing less active work.  

I still 'cheat' 5% with foods that are less then the above.  I eat maybe more chocolate (90%) then others would, and I do have ice cream.  Here are the items for my left over indulging, for which I gave up all OTHER associated foods.  No sugar, No grains (other than the ice cream cone), No dairy (other than 1 scoop of icecream), rarely sugary/white foods (other than 90% chocolate), low glycemic fruits fresh papaya, pineapple) (banana in 1-3 frozen slices only), near no juices (other than grapefruit now for the TC), eating out with way fewer desserts now.. meat about 3-4 oz twice a day and a few vegetables (and seldom salad dressing). Add some nuts here and there and this is it.  

SO many changes, but the biggest one is in my head KNOWING now that I CAN DO THIS way of eating 1/3 of what I did while younger.   THAT mental connection was most important.

TO deal with that some more I am also studying how the brain influences the organs.. This for me was never new, but it was never so well 'connected'.. Fear based living is miserable.. clearing fears up is a good thing...  
http://learninggnm.com/home.html

As for TC I bought enough to use it for all my friends who come over for coffee.. I am taking it 1 Teaspoon for ENERGY.. in the AM..   and early afternoon.  I am expecting to get some kind of result in my legs neuropathy, and for sure hope for fewer headaches.. which are some sort of Polineuropathy..  I think my eye balls feel better like less pressure behind them?? I am looking for my joints to feel better/ cleaner.. but so far I am still not there.. its only been my second container, and I did not take it in one whole spoon, I took it in 1/4 spoon all day.. IT might matter how one takes it.. taking it late in the day keeps me alert, and maybe even keeps me awake.. ...nice staying awake til 10 pm.. (I can fall asleep any time, but staying asleep is difficult.)  

So, now you know all there is to know.. haha

The big question is "What do we do about it?"

Whether fibromyalgia is caused  by a genetic mutation or something in the environment (or, more likely, a combination of the two, aka epigenetics) what we really need to know is what to do now.

From Tom Martens: If epigenetics are causing said issues, then Trelahose should reset the phenotype to the original state.

One of the recommendations for Trehalose Complex is that it be taken away from quercetin.  Being unsure of the amount of cranberry in your chocolate and how critical the recommendation, I recommend against as -
Cranberries are one of the leading fruit sources of quercetin on a weight basis.

Another thing, using Trehalose as a sweetener would cost less if bought as plain Trehalose instead of the Trehalose Complex. Lots of companies sell it. I put some of the Complex in pancakes, and they were very soft and tasty!  :)

I sent another PM, Goldie, hope you get it. That is wonderful about your progress with eliminating some of your medication! I couldn't help but smile when I read your comment about ice cream! It would nearly kill me if I did that regularly, (or even once in a while), but I remember my grandmother only eating  ice cream for the last five years of her life, and she lived to be 95!! :D Of course, ice cream was a whole different food all those years ago! Even 'way back then, though, I remember how it used to make me ache.......

OK, I finally read through this whole long thread!

Whoever quoted me last page- no problem. Anything I post on a public message board is public information.

Ribbit- where's my invitation to the salad party? hmmm?

I'm keeping close watch on Goldie's progress because we're both O nonnie Gatherers and our SWAMI food lists are similar. I've never had full-blown diabetes, but I'm prone to it (family history plus gestational diabetes) and I probably would be diabetic by now if I hadn't been on a low-sugar diet for the past decade.

I still have some questions about the trehalose complex itself. Is it safe for O nonnies? I see that some of the possible sources for it include mushrooms that are on my "avoid" list.

I'm just generally wary of any product that "tastes sweet but doesn't function like sugar in your body." I've heard that claim made for aspartame and sucralose, and those certainly aren't healthy products! If this isn't broken down by the digestive system, where exactly does it go and what does it do on the way?

Is this product safe for somebody who can't rule out possible Lyme's disease? What about somebody who might be mercury toxic and still has amalgam dental fillings? I'd hate to add in a supplement that might do me more harm than good.

Another factor is the cost. $25 a month means another few servings of red meat, which may do me more good than any supplement. I can see why somebody(was it TJ?) earlier in the thread was using the plain trehalose from Swanson's instead. If I can't afford the stuff from Dr D, would I be better off using cheaper trehalose or skipping it altogether? (If I don't decide not to use this supplement based on one of the answers to one of my above questions.)

I'm also wary of getting my hopes up again, that there's some other "magic bullet" that I can add to my routine and make me healthy. Cutting out wheat and dairy hasn't done that, 2 years on SWAMI hasn't done that yet, an Earthing pad on my bed hasn't done that- is healing really something that I can do?

If this isn't broken down by the digestive system, where exactly does it go and what does it do on the way?

Trehalose, a disaccharide present in many non-mammalian species, protects cells against various environmental stresses. Whereas some of the protective effects may be explained by its chemical chaperone properties, its actions are largely unknown. Here we report a novel function of trehalose as an mTOR-independent autophagy activator. Trehalose-induced autophagy enhanced the clearance of autophagy substrates like mutant huntingtin and the A30P and A53T mutants of α-synuclein, associated with Huntington disease (HD) and Parkinson disease (PD), respectively. Furthermore, trehalose and mTOR inhibition by rapamycin together exerted an additive effect on the clearance of these aggregate-prone proteins because of increased autophagic activity. By inducing autophagy, we showed that trehalose also protects cells against subsequent pro-apoptotic insults via the mitochondrial pathway. The dual protective properties of trehalose (as an inducer of autophagy and chemical chaperone) and the combinatorial strategy with rapamycin may be relevant to the treatment of HD and related diseases, where the mutant proteins are autophagy substrates.

This is just one study report...  Dr. D. may know more about the specific workings, transit path, etc...

A compilation of articles about Trehalose and different benefits.  One caution - it says that the enzyme to metabolize Trehalose is in the small intestine.  Per Dr. D., there is only a very small amount of the enzyme Trehalase made in the human body, so very little Trehalose will be broken down into glucose...  Most of it remains in the bonded form to stimulate autophagy...

This product is designed to help heal nerves, so it should help someone with Lyme disease...  Also, the modified citrus pectin will help to attract any mercury, etc. that may be released by the autophagy...

Quoted from ruthiegirl

I can't help with purity of alternate sources...  I know the benefit of the MCP in the Dr. D.'s TC, but you can find it separately, as well.  I've also used D-Ribose individually and know of its benefit personally.  I know both the MCP and D-Ribose are more expensive than the Trehalose...

Well, Ruthie, Dr. D. has never recommended any of those substances you mentioned!  :o   :D  It seems that you are put into the uncomfortable position of having to consume avoids on occasion that are slowing down your progress.* I would be a lot more worried about that than taking Trehalose Complex. I have gotten to the place that I have no interest in eating out anymore for the very reason that there is simply no way to avoid all the minefields out there. This is the person who once thoroughly enjoyed eating out and any celebration called for it!! Once I completely recover from the damage done to me by the months-long yogurt over-load binge, (avoid now as an Explorer) I will probably attempt eating out again. But right now, it is not worth eating a meal and suffering for days from the damage it does to me. I just feel that my body can't afford that right now.

*And not only that, you are under a terrific amount of stress trying to keep things together for your family. I remember how stressful those years were, but there were two of us handling the load. There were other stresses, though, that were very, very heavy during those years. Family sicknesses and deaths on both sides of the family were keeping us running all the time. I don't think I EVER felt well during those years.

I'm sorry you can't join in our enthusiasm about this wonderful supplement for now but, hopefully, someday you will!!  The best.......(smile)

THIS was a good posting.. Thanks.. I was just going to buy some ..



Ruthy Girl.. If it is Lyme then you are in a different category.. I fervently wish for you that it not to be so.. I wish that for you it is over worked, underpaid, and not enough appreciated.. Those are much easier to get fixed as time goes on.  

have you tested for Lyme?  If you suspect it then test again... BUT even if you had it, well that is different and getting well with Lyme is much different.

For Lyme, first off I would keep eating swami or at least BTD.. and I would add nightly enemas.. the reason or thinking behind that.. as the parasites either die off and or get old and are thrown off, I would want them out of me before going to sleep.  get rid of as many toxic things left over, or eggs and whatever.. low coffee enemas help to do that.  For them you would not need any equipment - just 30 minutes of time.. (these are different from high enemas, that are different ... ) Looking at the stool situation to see what is showing up would be more important, all sorts of stuff can and does for people with Lyme, green balls, and other colorful stuff is not unusual..

Lyme is different /// and yet for TC I wonder..  I found the real fruit citric acid more difficult LONG term.. but in just a little juice it is much easier to take.  I feel the scrub - in my mouth I can see it having cleared away all the white stuff on my tongue, and my teeth feel cleaner longer after brushing.. the fecal odors are better I think???? but I still have some issues with 'ease' of elimination.. not enough vegetables.. not enough oils.. The urine is more often clear instead of concentrated, but that might just be from the acid in the grapefruit that where so good this last month..  

Lyme requires a whole different regimen and eating as we do might become a thing of the past, as making JUICE becomes a must in order to have enough absorption of nourishment.  I do hope for you that you are going to be better some how, reduce your stress level mentally, and find other things to strengthen what bothers you..

Above I posted a thread to a new way of looking at illness, as a connection to the brain.. NO matter how hard it would be to read that (with a little learning about I think we all could do much to turn some illnesses around) Self healing has to start some place and doing it with our knowledge of brain connections it would become second nature.. ******

***** The chart needed to understand, is maybe more than some can afford, and yet it may save a life.. I am buying it and I understand many of those connections, and work with other healing means, so if anyone would like to have a platform where we could ask questions or get some answers .. *** I would be willing to help and communicate.  So, (anyone) look at some of the possibilities -- by looking at your pains- and then see if there is healing to be done .. from the inside of your own mind..

http://learninggnm.com/documents/chris-lowthert.html

learn from the free talk there.. long but worth listening..

ONE more thing people with Fibro should do is my lying down exercises..  

Quoted Text
Here is on exercise for EVERYONE .. for back and neck pain and for RELAXATION while doing GOOD for you!. Especially those who jog and push their body forward, thus creating a hunchback stance when getting older..

1) Choose a time when you can spend 20 minutes beginning to end.. take the phone with you or let it ring.. take eye shades with you or listen to TV .. just don't read a book as it would bend your neck.

2) THE IDEAL here would be IF you can do it without many books or just a skinny one under your head. But to start with, take as many books needed to be comfortable as that is most important -- this is not a one time CORRECTION.

3) If you can get on the floor (and get up again) lye on the floor and place your knees and feet in a square angle over the couch, scoot close to the couch to support your knees but not hanging from them........ If you are not able to get off the floor, then build a couch pillow tower on your bed.

4) Support your head comfortably. Eventually you will only need a one inch book/pillow.

5) Now lie down for 20 minutes with your arms comfortable.

6) After a while put your hands on the floor straight out and rotate one arm at a time (holding the shoulder with the other hand to feel the shoulder rotation.) Turn the hand 'out' slowly and 'in' again making sure that you move the shoulder cuff but NO STRESS.... Then shift to the other side and do the other arm and shoulder a few times. Essentially you will not feel any changes .. but the body knows what to do.. ALLOW it - to do it..

7) Now push ONE shoulder at a time into the floor comfortably.. for a few seconds.. feel the pull back across to the other side hip. Repeat a few times and relax then do the other side..

GENTLY is the key to this 20 minutes RELAXATION of your NECK and WHOLE spine/ adjusting ONE nerve at a time.. Until you lengthen the neck / spine to where you only need a one inch book/pillow.. The BODY will readjust it SELF.. Do this and you will save more money on chiros ..

Price 850 please send it to me.. Pretending I am the doctor on 5th Ave. .. A price well worth having paid for.. This is the true value of my sharing his instructions with you. Haha ...for more info pm me..

At first, before I saw the instructions on the jar, I read in the thread "to add a little compliant juice", so what did I do? I added a little cranberry concentrate - my wall-to-wall-geno-harmonic juice!

Now what happens, before long "it turns out" something else I haven't been aware of, i.e. that cranberries are rich in quercetin, courtesy of ABJoe who came to the rescue! Well, from that moment on I've been using the remains of the last half lemon in my fridge, and tomorrow I'm going Please God to reinforce my stock in the nearby grocery.

I believe that TC has to be dissolved in some slightly acidic juice.

Here is the easiest way for me to take it - I use a serving spoon and squeeze lemon or grapefruit juice until it is about half full. Then I add my Trehalose, stir it a little to blend and sip it right off the spoon. That is all the juice from either of them that I can tolerate twice a day.

Buckwheat is on there, too, but one pancake has about 2 mgs. of quercetin! To compare, my Quercetin caps have 400 mgs. each! I wonder sometimes if Dr. D. just shakes his head at how we parse and re-parse everything! Right down to the least particle - and then some!! (smile)

Spring - thanks for the chart, I see that I get lots of quercitin on a daily basis! I had no idea that it was in so many foods! Many thanks again.

This is my third day on 1 tsp. in the a.m. Am feeling a bit clearer despite these severe allergies. At one time they would put me down, but not now.


I'm so glad you are seeing some improvement! It is so encouraging too!!

It doesn't mean that you shouldn't eat cranberries or drink the juice...  Just not within an hour of taking the Trehalose Complex...
I calculated according to the table and additional calories data, and found out that each time I added to the warm water a splash (15 ml) of cranberry concentrate instead of the lemon juice, I added 3 mg quercetin.  :o  :P

This morning I've completed my first week dosage of TC. The first 3 days I had an average of 1 teaspoon per day, the rest 4 days - 1/2 a teaspoon a day.

I feel very good, very much myself, organized, focused, and balanced - much better than before I started taking the TC.

I had a headache but it was much less severe and so far today I don't have a headache so far.

.... and that is still remarkable.

I am now taking it 1 teaspoon in the am with a little grapefruit juice and no longer eat the grapefruit in slices all day.. seems that it was to much for me to eat as much.. but now I am ok..

Then I take the second tea spoon in the afternoon... and feel more energetic... and all is well.

If I take it at night I think I get so energized that I can stay awake longer... which is ok, because then maybe I can sleep through the night which is a rare thing, BUT it has happened 3 times.  

I am wondering however.. anyone with acid relux???  [color=blue][/color] how has taking the grapefruit juice been for you? and how have you felt over night?  

I have told a 40 year old overweight man to start eating apple slices and honey at night before going to bed and taking the TC during the day.. I will see how that goes..

I have to be very careful not to overdo grapefruit and even lemon or I will hurt, hurt, hurt!!! I have had acid reflux for years, but it stays well under control as long as I am careful about my diet and the citrus that I am allowed.

:B  Dianne, I just can't keep my mouth shut! It has been so exciting!

And this deal about my eyelid is astonishing to me more than anything! I have had a slightly drooping eyelid since I was born. It didn't actually bother me, I just accepted it as one of those things.

But to get on with my story, I don't pay a whole lot of attention to my face in general except when I'm doing my hair, and other maintenance, but I kept noticing something strange about my face last week when I would pass by a mirror. This went on for two or three days until finally I decided to try to figure out what was going on with my face! To my huge surprise, the drooping eyelid is no more!! I simply couldn't believe it. I even went so far as to measure both eyes, using my glasses as a guide, to make sure I wasn't imagining this. I still couldn't believe it was anything but a fluke, so I kept measuring for a few more days! Well, it is the real deal, and my eyes look exactly the same now! :o

Nothing has changed in my life except taking this Trehalose Complex. There has never in my entire life been any change in this eyelid from the time I was born unless it was when I was very tired, and then it was even worse!

So I'm pretty excited about this, not so much that the eyelid is fixed now, but that this is simply an outward sign of the possibilities of what this stuff can do!! Maybe it will fix my eyes so I don't need glasses or contacts anymore!! I'm holding off going to my doctor to have them checked just in case!!(hugegrin)

I really think taking the higher amount is why I am having quicker results. There is no doubt in my mind that I feel better than anyone on my street!! No one has any promises about tomorrow, of course, but I'm making the most of every single moment of this wonderful feeling that Trehalose has given me.

And another note: My hair and fingernails/toenails are growing like crazy! In about two days I will have taken my first container....... The value of what it has done for me is far greater than the price I paid. Just peanuts by comparison. And that has nothing to do with what I am seeing with my eyes! (sunny)

Spring,

Well, you are experiencing much more than I would have thought from basically a sugar substitute (but obviously it's so much more).  That is really great.  I hope you report more physical improvements.

I find if I take it say after 1PM (that's the second dose of less than a teaspoon) I'm a little too jazzed at night no matter what sleep supplements I take.  I've been taking it in water with a few drops of lemon essential oil in the AM.

You mentioned I believe that you were taking it in honey, was this right?  Might that have something to do with it.  Maybe it gets into your system faster?  I don't know.  I'm a work in progress with this as we all are right now.

This is probably the start of my second week with TC.  How long have you been taking it, anyway?

Joy

Joy, I have been taking it with either lemon or grapefruit, and this morning I tried lime juice. Nothing else. I was going out today, so I went ahead and took my second teaspoon before I left, which was around 12:30 PM. I think I am going to start doing that every day. I had been taking it at about 3:30. To tell you the truth, I think I would do just fine taking the whole two teaspoons in the morning if I thought it was keeping me awake at night!

I have been taking it a little over a month. I don't remember the exact date I started. It was a little while before taxes were due, I remember that!!(hugegrin)

Yes, this is all new territory, except for the fact that we have been eating Trehalose all our lives!

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..

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.

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! (sunny)

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.

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! (smile)

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.

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!

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.

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!!!!! (hugegrin)

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!

Well, I ordered the ARA6 powdered form today.  It seems to be a great complement to alot of other supplements.

I'm feeling comfortable taking one and a quarter teaspoons of TC in the morning and that's it for the day.  Yesterday I took a full teaspoon in the AM and then again in the afternoon and I trouble getting to sleep.  I was up and down a number of times.  Luckily I had my ultra sound session today and he was aware that I hadn't slept well and adjusted the session to a very comfortable level.  Bless him for that.  

Now I don't know for sure what other factors play into overeating but I have found that I'm craving cheese and crackers.  I used to eat just one or two crackers with cheese but yesterday and today I scarffed down at least half a dozen.  I know that emotional eating played into the whole mix and I intend to correct that through more exercise and less food intake.

Sometimes it is a constant struggle.

Don't have either one, but castor oil might do the trick. It has worked for several things in the past. I plan to get some of the BRR the next time I order, though. Hopefully, it won't smell as bad as castor oil!

Thank you, yaeli! I did sleep much better than I expected! This morning my toe is bright red/black on top and black on the bottom, but I am very pleased that it is not throbbing at all. It is very sore, though, so I will be limping a little today. Could have been a lot worse! I had been carrying a 24 volt battery too - I think it would have smashed it flat!

yes .. I learn new things every day..

As for eating less... well I can have the extra grapefruit which for me is really nice.. if I add TC to it it is even better.. just that little sweetness.. I am not so spoiled any more..

I was able to walk away from some cake last week.. unheard of.. but still no it has not affected my weight at all..

Still no headache.. that is near hard to believe.. I WONDER could anyone report on sinuses??

and those who test for diabetes sticks do any of you see the better or same results?? I don't needle stick so I don't know.. but I wonder if TC could be good for that type of sugar issue and COULD one therefore have to do fewer sticks???  

I think buying reg trehalose as a pound sugar and eat that instead of other sweets might keep my blood sugar in its proper place.. I have no idea what it would do to our body as a side effect if eaten more than a spoon full?? as in added to foods and create a whole new category of allowed sweetened foods??    

I tried rice yesterday.. it was good enough but truly a steak is better.. I gained 2 pounds over night.. and finished the darn thing this morning.. had a piece of choc after and THAT did not even entice me to eat more.. so something is satisfied.. but not worth the weight gain.. it will take me days to get rid of that.. and I need to fit into a dress next week..

so back to meat and greens..

I haven't been craving sugar, thankfully!! But I did feel the need to keep cramming protein and more protein. It is abating dramatically today, though, so maybe I am over the worst of it.  :o Yes, I sort of expect this toe to be a while healing, but castor oil really is good for getting inflammation out....

Goldie, rice is a super food for me, but I just can't love it anymore, and it is apt to make me gain weight too! I do MUCH better with sweet potatoes. (Can you have yams and amaranth?) Or one of my amaranth, etc., pancakes. I do use a little brown rice flour added to them sometimes. I don't gain weight eating sweet potatoes or pancakes. But I never eat them at the same meal.

Hi, Mayflowers! The citrus makes it more effective. Do you have to avoid ALL citrus? I have a problem with orange and grapefruit (if I eat it too often) but lemon seems all right for me. (I only use about 1/2 T. with water) I have taken a whole container with no problems. So whatever they are using has been okay for me. If I couldn't tolerate taking it with lemon juice, I would still try it without it. It is a pity you can't buy a sample just to try.  :'(

The modified citrus pectin in the NAP TC helps to take waste products from the body, reducing re-absorption in the digestive tract.  Unfortunately, for those with citrus allergy, it may not be possible to take this.  

Hopefully, digestive tract healing will reduce your reaction to all things citrus at some time so you will be able to utilize this formula, if desired.

I wonder if a "squirt" would even be the amount in a spoon of Trehalose. I cannot taste anything acidic about it at all. Out of 4000 milligrams total per spoon, the pectin at 235 mgs. is a very small amount. About 6 per cent.
1 teaspoon of citric acid = 4~6 teaspoons of lemon juice = 8 teaspoons of vinegar.

I was a LOT older than you were when I first started on the diet and about ready for a complete breakdown.

I had stomach issues, and they went away after I stopped eating almonds.. but that might just be me.. then again I got it back this afternoon after I ate some stuff I should not .. all avoids serves me right..

Now however I read in a book on reflux that one should do several things..

eat a slice of apple before going to bed.. take a spoon of honey if one feels Like I do right now.. burning all the way up the throat.

TC does not affect me at all - but then grapefruit does not bother me at all ..

a question - if you really needed it - TYC that is - not everyone needs it-  then could you take it without the citrus? I mean it is just enhanced with citrus..

and then also I think that some sensitivity to certain foods - in this case citrus - comes from NOT enough stomach acid and so small amounts of FRUITS might fix it.  

BUT I WOULD stick with only SUPER Diamonds for many months..  In my Swami I can only have Guava and Elderberries for Diamonds.. and I can not find either in the stores..  so I eat Beneficial fruits ..

Included for information purposes ONLY.  This is not an endorsement of this product or an implication that this is the brand used by DPN.  It explains the process and reasoning behind the modification.
Believe it or not, you likely eat pectin daily - it's a soluble fiber found in the cell walls of many plants. It's probably best known for its water-binding ability. When ingested, it helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, prevent constipation, and support colon health.  However, while ordinary pectin works well as a fiber that sweeps through your digestive tract, the size of these unmodified pectin molecular chains makes it impossible for them to penetrate your intestinal tract and provide additional benefits.

PectaSol® Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) is a compound comprised of pectin chains that have been "chopped" into a smaller, more concentrated, and more readily absorbed form in the laboratory.  When ingested, these MCP molecules are able to penetrate your digestive lining and travel in the bloodstream to various target points in your body, where they bind with harmful sticky cell surface proteins called galectins and halt unhealthy developments by promoting normal cell division. Multiple published clinical, in vitro, and animal studies have confirmed PectaSol®'s astonishing abilities.


It is possible that the reason this product isn't bothering people normally bothered by citrus is that this is the pectin portion of the food only, with a shortened molecular chain.

Spring,

Could it be that with these supplements, now a part of your daily intake, you have become a "super healer"?  So following the BTD and using TC and ARA6 has sped up your healing process.

Would it be fair to say that this is a true statement for you?  I'm sure you take other supplements but your reactions thus far have been encouraging to alot of us.  While we are all individuals in this community the best information seems to be available to us to consider.

I do get alot from reading about people's progress thus far.  The proof is in the posting!

Joy, I don't think my body at this age has suddenly started healing at super speed all by itself. I have been taking common supplements, and some not so common, for forty years. It had been fifteen or twenty years since I had any sort of cold until this past fall, and I attributed that to the overload of yogurt I was eating 3 times a day, etc., as I have mentioned before. I have not suffered any major problems with allergies.

I did have the episode with Clorox, but I was doing a huge cleaning job on the house trim over four days and was not careful enough about my exposure to it. This brought on inflammation of my esophagus, upper stomach and did an awful number on my nervous system. Besides this, I developed high blood pressure because of the nerve problem. Which still sort of comes and goes according to whatever stress happens to be going on, but it is definitely lower now than when I started taking TC. I believe now that part of the reason that it took me so long to get over the Clorox exposure is that I stopped all my supplements because of the irritation in my esophagus and stomach, and, also, because I didn't know how they would react to my blood pressure medication. I gradually added them back over a period of time, but I had lost a lot of ground during that time.

Anyway, I began to notice a big difference in the way I felt after I started taking ARA some time ago, but with adding Trehalose Complex, it is simply amazing, and I can  see changes every day in my skin, my energy, even the healing in my toe and foot among other things that I have written about!

So, yes, there is no doubt in my mind that ARA6 and Trehalose have benefited me more than I ever thought possible - especially since it has only been a month or so and one container of Trehalose Complex!

So now I will relax a bit before hitting the sack!! (smile)

It is so funny to be concerned with every little detail about a product mimicking sugar..

I took both spoons of TC 2 hours apart, in the morning yesterday, and I felt so alive all day that it was actually rather strange. The energy level is kind of strange.. it is not Adrenalin based. No feeling of palpitations, and I tested just to be sure pulse was 70 -90 depending .. but that is normal for me, and it can go lower, but my oxygen level is always around 90-93 the highest. The heart has to work more to provide the oxygen needed in the body.  

I ended up doing something that I would only do during full moon.. starting a new project....yet it is NOT even near full.. This energy is different.. I actually was daring, and followed through on doing a scary task. I might actually have been to hasty, no patience..  I am hoping 'my courage' will work out.  

I am not certain that I will do 2 spoons together again, I might not want to be so energized. It lasted way into the evening, and still allowed a snooze in the afternoon.. This is strange stuffffff. ;D

Hi Mayflowers,

I do not have an adverse reaction from lemons but I can't tolerate alot of citrus and therefore stay away from it.

Reread ABJoe's information posted.  Different forms of a substance when added to a supplement are OK.

No one wants you to risk an allergic reaction.  There is 100% Trehalose (you'd have to make sure there are no additives) sold on Amazon.  Something called Sweet T (not positive of this name) is sold in packets.

Why not reap the benefits that Trehalose may give you.

Something to consider..........

Goldie, I take 1 teaspoon each time about two hours apart in the AM and my pulse rate is 50-60! In the past, it would be around 80-90 when I was lying in the bed trying to sleep!

I am with you about the orange in polyvites! Totally! I hate what orange does to me. I had to send a big order of Vitamin C back to Puritan because they started using orange in it so they could label it as having bioflavonoids! Made my stomach hurt like crazy.

But if you use a squirt of lemon on your fish (or did I read that wrong?) this shouldn't bother you. Only .06 of a teaspoon is not much.

Interesting.  Since taking Trehalose S., I have had a strange tickle-drilling sensation on the sole of my right foot.  It lasts a couple of minutes, then fades out and stops.  I talked with my M.D., who didn't have a clue what it signified.  So, I'm just accepting it at this time as a process.  :)
If you could isolate the point on your sole you could use a reflexology chart to find out which part of your body it is connected to.

I agree.  And the point does correspond to the area of my health that I have been focusing on lately.  It will be interesting to see if the sensation goes away as my issues stabilize.

Well, mine were getting worse until I started TC, although, I'm still blaming all that yogurt for setting me back. I had even gotten rid of all my white lines before that! SWAMI saved me from the yogurt and my hands from getting worse, but they hadn't started recovering until a week or so ago.

And I am a lot older than you so that does make a difference! (smile) Besides I don't think anything is going to dampen my enthusiasm about TC - I've never seen anything like it! But there is no question that it is building on what has already been done through the diets and other supplements these past several years.

I'm still excited about the clarity of my mind and improved vision that I'm experiencing.  Still at 1 tsp every morning.

Thanks Victoria. After obstinate drilling for a week, it has almost completely stopped. This morning I felt a similar sensation in the forearm. It lasted one second. I also visited my GP on Wednesday, who couldn't say anything about it.

I can't tolerate any form of citrus.. not even on my skin. It burns. Citrus gives me migraines, abnormal growths, acne like bumps all over my face..It's not a pretty sight.  ;)


You've maybe just reminded me of a similar conversation we had before about citric acid which I know triggers aura migraines.
I've been taking trehalose with fresh grapefruit and had a few days off due to bladder??? pain which was not cystitis as such..... but I also have lots of face spots, which is unheard of!!  OK definitely now ditch the fruit for a period and see if my skin improves....... thanks Mayflower.

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.

My guess would be that if you reduced the dosage down to about 1/2 teaspoon (or less) per day for a while to allow your body to go through the autophagy (cellular cleaning) process, that you would work through the waste that is causing the issues and return to a healthier state.
  
The tip-off to me is the gaseousness...  This is very typical when the body is removing hard-to-digest toxins.  The key is to reduce the toxin removal to a tolerable level, rather than throw out the healing altogether.

As stated earlier in the thread, I had to start slowly to control the negative effects of the healing process.

If the TC has citrus then I might buy the plain trehalose..      I think it might work real well even just as a sugar substitute ..

the spots on my hands seem to fade.. but maybe I will get them back as soon as I go in the sun..

I use the little TC left in the glass and put it on my face.. and neck.. I have no idea what it might do, but it might make the skin clear up.. ?? ha ha

I had a headache today but still not every day as usually.. and seemingly I might have brought it on by watching a stressful movie and having some other stress over night.. I will know more tomorrow..

Goldie,

This was my train of thought for those who cannot tolerate any citrus in a supplement.  

So far I'm having positive results from TC but I only take one teaspoon in the morning along with my ARA6.  If I take another in the afternoon it tends to keep me awake.   This is all so new and I'm excited about the changes that I might see on a physical level.

I'm sure you've done your "homework" as they say and know about Sweet T.  It states it contains no other substances.  

I'm just starting my second week with TC and my first week with ARA6 powder form.

Thankyou everyone, including the negative side effects and possible reasons for them.
I bought plain trehalose so might go back to taking a very small amount, perhaps it wasn't all the fault of the grapefruit.... but for the time being I'll give that a rest and see what happens.

I agree with all of the above.  I have kept my dose at 1 tsp/day.  For the first container, I had a lot of gas.  Practically none any more.  Cellular cleansing can be uncomfortable in various ways at times.  Sometimes my sleep was restless in the beginning also - hard to let go.  This also has passed and I'm sleeping very deeply.

Thanks, Lola! I think I will start doing this for my second serving of the day  of this wonderful supplement! Sometimes I am in a hurry and this would work great for me!

As for the unusual feelings, etc., after taking the Trehalose Complex that some people are having, I think they have to remember that this is not just an every day, run of the mill supplement! I expected gas, loose stools, etc., anything of that sort that would only indicate to me that a major overhaul was taking place in my body. I was having to drink much more water than usual too. My blood pressure was never affected by it, but, then, many different things affect different peoples' BP from one day to the next.

Starting off with as much as I did is not for the fainthearted!! But I was ready for noticeable results, and dived right in! I must say that every time I take it, I'm still amazed by the way it is affecting my body. Twenty minutes max and I feel like a different person! (sunny)(whistle)(woot)

Okay, I have a little more time now so I will try to say a little more about the quick results I get after taking TC every morning. I don't know why it affects me so quickly, but I will take it first thing in the morning with about a half tablespoon or less of lemon juice and some water. I get busy with other things for a while before I get breakfast together. During that time, when I have forgotten all about taking TC, it is as if there is a very noticeable shift in my whole body, sort of like it is coming alive. This has happened over and over again. And it is like, "Hey, I feel great!!"

Now, I am not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination, ordinarily. Especially, when my previous day has been very tiring because of some project or other, and the past several days have been like that. So by last night, after the busiest day of all, I was one tired gal!!! But this morning, without fail, TC did whatever it is that it does, and I was able to do what I usually do on Sunday without a hitch!!  

No, I don't just "happen" to be feeling so much better, my eyelid didn't just "happen" to be opening normally after not doing so for the many decades since my birth, it didn't just "happen" that I feel ten years younger already, it didn't just "happen" that my skin feels more like it did ten years ago, it didn't just "happen" that mental clarity has taken the place of that fuzzy fog, it didn't just "happen" that I have fatty tumors that are shrinking, it didn't just "happen" that my foot has healed so quickly, and the best part of all is that my body is making much better use of the food I eat and the supplements I take!!

This has been a very informative thread.  I think I'll have to give it a try.  I'm putting in an order for supplements tomorrow anyway, so I'll add it to my list.

I also take ARA6 regularly and it was mentioned that it helps with the benefits of the Trehalose Complex so I'm anxious to see what results I may get.

Someone also mentioned taking it and then getting in the sauna.  I just got one recently, so will see what that does too.

I feel so good sometimes it almost makes me feel guilty that we are using something that does this for us, and so many who need it a lot more than we do could benefit so tremendously, if only they knew!

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! (smile) 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. (smile) 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!

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!

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!  :D 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.....!(smile)

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)  :o..

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. 8).

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!  :o 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!

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!!!

:o :o :o 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!

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..

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 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?

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..  ;D

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..   :K)

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.

It is wonderful that you are doing so well! Those fourteen years have certainly not been wasted!(smile) I admire people who are older than I am who have taken such good care of their health. I'm sure you and your husband bring a ray of sunshine to those around you whether they want to understand anything about the diet or not! So that is one more thing to be happy about! (smile)

I tried it with plain water, and it worked fine. But you do know that there is about .06 of a teaspoon of modified citrus pectin in each 1 teaspoon serving? I don't know how much it takes for you to react, but it is something to keep in mind. I am sensitive to citrus, but it hasn't bothered me like I thought it would to take it in about 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice. I certainly wouldn't recommend that to people who are super-sensitive, though!  :o

I started out with Grapefruit by the thick slices eating two a day, could not get enough, felt thirsty and needed it.. then I reduced the slices to thinner slices and still further to slivers, and now to just the plain grapefruit juice I can buy, this all took about 2 month ..

Today I use just a little in a glass of water... seems my body, mouth and intestines all, after a while HAD ENOUGH.. It's marvelous how that works.  I am not sensitive, so I am not answering your question, but I am observing how much things change - even while they stay the same.  Today I do the ounce of grapefruit only 2 times a day with one spoon full TC each time... I am on the third container.  

For now I am taking it for at least 2 more containers, or until I feel that I cleaned out all the gunk.  I am shocked how it seems to work in my brain/and /thinking as well.  I am becoming aware that my brain is not 'just' a part of me, but 'is' part of me and needs as much protection or help as any other part within..

I wish we knew more, but if I were going to try the plain, I would definitely get ribose to use with it. Maybe there is some other fruit you could use besides citrus, but that is something we just don't know, not yet, anyway. I hope that Dr. D. will enlighten us more about it as time goes on! --As we've said so many times before, we are all so different!!  :-/  And this citrus deal is a major concern for some people!

NO!  There are no absolutes in life except that once born you will die.

The three items in TC work well together and each have a specific function, as well as the lemon or grapefruit also being helpful together.  This doesn't mean that it HAS to be this way.

I would think however, that if you are having continued problems with items that are supposed to be beneficial foods, that you focus on digestive tract healing.  It really is the most important system to have functioning properly.  Once you can digest and eliminate properly, then the body will do deeper cleaning and healing.

I already asked this question & Lola said she takes it with water.
Since she is the expert, that is good enough for me.  It still doesn't taste too sweet, but I do detect another taste in there.  I bet supertasters would taste it even more!

Just out of curiosity, I decided to see if this complex will revive a flower that ran out of water and had begun to wilt! I used some that I had "powdered" a few days ago. Should have put it in the water to begin with just to see how long it might survive.

Of course, I suppose it was the Trehalose alone that they were talking about using for flowers, but I just wanted to see if this stuff would work!  (smile) Who knows, this flower may be a super taster like me and lap it right up!! On the other hand, it may keel over within the next hour! It is a cutting from a Lacecap Hydrangea.

Another thing, DO NOT use the Complex on your flowers!! You would need to get the plain Trehalose to benefit them! I wish I had some of it right now! As I've said before, this is so much fun!! (sunny)(whistle)

I certainly hope you do, BCgal!! I have been spreading mine out and taking it three times a day lately, and that is working great too. But I still don't take it later than around 3-4 PM.

I was at a gathering this past weekend, and a dear friend, a widower, who is getting up in his eighties had baked a pound cake that I simply could not in any way NOT have a small piece! Pound cake has to be the best sweet poison on the face of the earth to me, and it lived up to its reputation!!! Oh, boy, did I ever pay for it --- for TWO DAYS! Even my daily Trehalose Complex "fix" was struggling with this dreadful offense!! I'm not sure I am completely over it yet..... I hate to think what kind of shape I would have been in if I hadn't had TC!  :o  But I have to say that the pound cake was the best, sweetest, lightest I have ever eaten in my entire life. But don't worry, I did NOT ask for the recipe!! (hand)(whistle)(whistle)

yaeli, I never expected to eat this gentleman's cake again in my life. It would appear that the time is very limited that he will be able to do this sort of thing anymore. He and his wife, who died a few years ago, have been dear friends for fifty years. I suppose I mostly ate the cake for a number of reasons that had nothing to do with the cake itself. So I guess a few days of not feeling so well will soon pass without too much harm done. I do hope so! Actually, I can't say that it slowed me down too much - I've gotten a whole lot of stuff done!!

I think maybe this Trehalose Complex has sort of gotten me spoiled already!!! (smile)

I've already wrote about it here, how TC enhances any experience of the senses. This in itself is a bliss. (cool)(woot) I suppose (I hope!!!) that's the reason why I hardly crave any food anymore. Even when I'm hungry. I just eat then what I need. I can't remember a time when things were working this way for me. In childhood maybe.

It is really and truly remarkable, isn't it!?! I'm so glad you are having the same feelings about this as I am!! Our sons are trying not to show it, but they are so afraid this is going to one of those "flash in the pan" deals that they have been holding their breath for weeks!! Of course, they don't have a clue that I am completely aware of it!!  ;D

If I am having any problem with TC it is that I am having to be careful that I don't overdo things. My brain feels like a young person's, and my body hasn't quite gotten up to speed yet!! Actually, I feel stronger than I ever have, but the endurance is the deal. For instance, just a few years ago, I could cut down a fair-sized tree with a hand saw, but I think I would land in the ER if I tried that today! Maybe not, but I definitely don't intend to try to find out!! (hugegrin)

Goldie, our friend is too far away from you, but he is one of the most interesting conversationalists that I have ever been around. You would enjoy a conversation with him, no doubt! His father was the same way. So interested in other people and their welfare too. He lost a leg in WWI and refused to marry the gorgeous girl, to whom he was engaged before going to war, after he got back home. He told her that she deserved so much more than to marry a man like him. Well, she was having no part of that and married him anyway to his astonishment! So, now, this is his son in his latter years..... A wonderful family indeed!

As for the bad feeling, you are right, we don't want to feel that way every day!!!

Goldie, I don't think a little pity party now and then hurts anything, as long as we know that is what it is. My mother-in-law and I used to joke about having our little pity parties once in a while! Maybe you are having the headache for beating up on yourself for having a pity party. It is amazing the things we can think up to punish ourselves about!! :o

I think I am getting better results now with taking my TC spread out through the day as long as I don't take it after around 4:00. Maybe that will help you too! (smile) I take a little more in the AM than the rest of the time, though.

For some reason Deflect causes some sort of negative reaction when I take it. I think it is the source of the Glucosamine. The veggie source doesn't seem to bother me though. But I was taking care to take all the other things that usually help during one of these very infrequent episodes! In fact, I am having to take other things today to combat the problems brought on by overdoing it when I was supposed to be feeling so bad!!! What a hoot!!!  ::) Getting out in the sun and doing some sweat therapy is addictive!!

Well, I took three different headache pills no results.. then I spoke to a friend and felt much better soon.. the emotions are what matters when one wishes to get healing accomplished..

sorry to admit that eating is another way for me.. not good at all ..

the trehalose did not help either, but it generally helps to energize and it prevents caffeine headaches in on interesting way,  I think it reduce the REBOUND.. and the coffee desire.. which for me is a big thing..

Trehalose Complex??:

AS for TC a friend asked me for two more containers for his fast getting Alzheimer / senile/ forgetting everything wife.  He is diligently giving her two spoons TC a day..  I wonder ?????  Is there any hope? could one take more TC and make a difference quick before it is too late.. could one arrest the situation to not let it get worse..?????  she is still driving, can still sit and follow a conversation for one minute or two.. and then forgets all that was said.. no connections from point a- b..

She is only 70, it came on suddenly within 3-6 month, yet for two or three years she has become 'silent', talking when spoken to, and alert enough so we did not notice while seeing her every day for 30 minutes of a daily visit.. Was that the beginning of the brain deterioration? should we have paid attention to a person 'going' silent?   ??) ??) ??) ??)

Thanks Spring..

I have seen people helped tremendously by the B Vitamins, so I don't see why TC wouldn't help - even if it only helped the depression part of the disease that can be awful for the person and everyone around them. Is he giving her ARA too? It is amazing that she can still drive! (smile)

I have settled on : TC worked for some issues, but stress still triggers a headache..

WHAT else to do to reduce stress to avoid the headache???

I also wish to reduce weight.. WHAT else besides TC after years on BTD?  I am so tried of the struggle..  

And : What to do more of, to regain my younger brain/memory/recall.. I have fixed many health issues, but my brain is just not recalling events as it ought to do.. I am NOT accepting old age gracefully if it also means becoming 'stupid'.

There has to be some stuff that will rejuvenate hormones lost after menopause when this 'lesser' brain function started..  Some other older woman are capable of being relevant, brain, memory wise.. I wish for the same thing..

TC helped but there has to be more!

Walking and exercising are vital. There's no replacement for those.

To improve and refreshen my brain functions, I do Lumosity Brain Training. I started when I was too weak to do any gymnastics.

Most important, start a creative project, one which may have been your secret dream. The best thing to keep you young is to work with children.

Goldie, are you still enjoying ice cream now and then? Could that trigger a headache for you? It would trigger a whole lot of nasty things for me!

Are you using iodine as needed? It makes a huge difference if you are lacking! Make a note to remind you to do it when you need it!

Decide that you WILL grow older gracefully, and that in itself will save a huge amount of energy. The less I worry about getting older, the better I feel, the more I can get done, and the happier I am!

I have found that a good sense of humor will stand an older person in good stead when nothing else will when it comes to the occasional memory problem. For instance, I have always had problems with remembering peoples' names since I was young, so that is nothing new! I have always made notes for myself. A few more as time goes by doesn't bother me. (smile)

If your hormones are out of whack, there is possibly something you can do about that. There have been volumes written about it on the forum.

And you are taking ARA?

To keep your brain sharp, you need to exercise it. Play word games and/or logic puzzles. Research things that are a little bit too hard to understand, and work to understand them. Learn something new- a new kind of card game, or a new crafts technique- just something to get your brain working.

In spite of the systemic Candida problem that nearly wiped out twenty-five years of my life, I can truly say that in many ways it never slowed me down a whole lot. I fought the brain fog with exercise. I fought the muscle weakness with unadulterated grit - sometimes with tears streaming down my face. I think I have mentioned that I am an unusually strong person and had always been that way until Candida.  :'(  So that was a hard pill to swallow. The horrendous depression was also helped by walking miles upon miles. That is when I started on the fish oil which helped tremendously, too, plus a whole gang of other supplements in addition to what I was already taking. The sad part of this was that my sons were growing up during those years, but I have never once heard either of them voice the first complaint about it.....

If I described all the huge projects I have undertaken since getting rid of Candida, it would take the rest of the day!! Some of them were so hard that for a few years afterwards I would look at them and think, "Did I really do that?" Then, I got hit by the Clorox mess. So that definitely slowed me down for a year or so, but even at that I was still doing the gardening, etc., etc., which is the best remedy on the planet for me!

And things are really looking up with the addition of Trehalose!  (sunny)

spring you are 90 + but 45 also.. so why not at least give the decade on this site so we know what we are talking about..

as for candida.. I am of the belief that nothing can live in oil.. I wonder would taking loads of olive oil help to eradicate it?? I wonder?

what was the clorox mess you are talking about...?

As for kids not complaining  ... well it is part of the cycle of 'kids' adult kids' not KNOWING right from wrong accepting way more dysfunction then they should..   Sometimes they opt for the opposite and go to the other side.. either side.. Before they actually see the need to get counseling..

that is not to make you feel bad.,.. I was in the same sickness boat when i brought up the kids.. I apologize when the time is right.. but life goes on.. being aware on your part is a good thing. much more then many who have no clue..

Spring,

Kudos to you for how you have addressed each health issue and healed.  It is never really easy, is it.  Trehalose is like a reward in my opinion.  It seems to have enhanced your life to new levels as it has done for others who are adding it to their daily intake.

I am almost through my first jar and I am feeling the energetic lift I get.  I am still only taking l teaspoon (a little more than level) each day.   I haven't experienced what others have but that is because as we are all individuals.

Do I dare say that I have noticed a slight fading of an age spot on my right cheek just to the right of my eye socket.  I do use foundation and that covers it during the day.  But I've begun to notice that after I wash my face in the evening it is lighter.

This is very nice to notice and it is just one more reason to keep including Trehalose each day.

I hope we all stay motivated.

Joy

Goldie, my sons never felt deprived at all. There is nothing to apologize for in the least. They would laugh at the idea. Instead we enjoy reminiscing about the things that they had so much fun doing when they were growing up. They enjoyed more activities than any kids in their acquaintance. And I was always there for them. So, no, you are not making me feel bad!

One major thing in my favor that helped me during all the things I have dealt with in my lifetime was the fact that I was able to keep my sense of humor. Sometimes barely, but it was still there.

As for my age, I don't post it online unless I have to so you just have to be satisfied with the fact that I am not ninety or forty-five!  ;D Neither am I above or below those numbers!  (smile)

Thanks, very much!! Yes, Joy, I see Trehalose as a reward too! I forget to notice the outward signs of progress because I am so busy making use of the energy that I have now, besides being astonished at the improvement in my mental clarity! But I do have signs such as the lipomas going away, my eyelid staying put and many other things. It is almost like I am having to learn again how to live on an entirely different level. I was having to measure my strength and stamina for all the heavy duty stuff I was doing just a few weeks ago!! All I can say is WOW!!  :o  (hugegrin) (sunny)

SPRING.. I love you.. the link reminded me of all the things I once suffered with.. Thank the universe I only have  headaches..    the link reminded me of :

1) I took 20 years painkillers loaded with caffeine.. that was all they had then..

2) I am no longer drinking caffeinated coffee, TC has helped to get rid of most 'wishing' to have some..

3) I can get rid of the headache, and I just did this hour ago, by drinking a cup of reg coffee!..

4) it seems that TC stopped most of the rebound cycle .. so there is progress..

5) I think my headache comes from stress Cortisol.. it starts maybe in the liver but I feel it on my left side.. like by the pancreas or the spleen...

6) I am starting to think that it is similar to a gallbladder GAS attack some people get under their right shoulder..I had it once age 45 for 1 week..

..... I think I get 'like such' a gas pain going up on the LEFT side through the neck to the top of the scull - lasting 6 hours- the time it takes to pass something in the digestion levels from some where or some place changing the ENVIRONMENT.. ... If this sounds  ::) GREEK to you just move on ;D

7) Emotionally this kind of pain issue is from long ago when 'seeing, sensing, or hearing' a 'respect' insult made me shutter, close down and retreat in utter frustration..

I can think of at least 3 such occasions.. the first age nearly 8 by the insensitive teacher who questioned my integrity.. ... another age 19 for the loss of a job for making 7's with a line through - not knowing then- that in the US they did not do so.  A third insult at age 29 when a lawyer destroyd my trust in common decency, mistreated me for  body pain stemming from on accident at 27 ..  

SO I guess, I could work on all these and see where I come out .. of this - headache situation.. as I experience it from the same / similar = moments of frustrations. Having no power to do something about it.. unless = I eat or drink (caffeine.)  

Thanks for the link. 8). It opened my awareness - again - I am currently studying connections of: 'where' the pain is = to what/where it 'came' from..  

I need a similar link for the LEFT side of my insides..  :-/  

You see I am getting closer to solve the riddle.. even if I do not have the solution yet.. Bach flowers might help..

The lessening with TC of the decades of headaches is affording me the ability to 'feel' / think / deal with them...  the beginning of healing..  :'(

I have fewer headaches.. less need for caffeine.. might work on some issues of eyes and my tongue is not white any more.. I am taking it for three month, one to 2 tea spoons a day on grapefruit.. or in grapefruit juice..

Don't take it close to dinner as you might not go to sleep.. it can cause some gas at the beginning..

I am one of the few here who had a negative reaction with trehalose. I used the Swanson brand. The first time was in Feb. and within a few hours of taking it I got the bloated stomach, gas and then diarrhea. That lasted for about a day and a half until I got it all out of my system. Tried it again, same reaction.

Since then I read information about the GAPS diet which involves eliminating all  disaccharides and starches until the enterocytes in the gut wall can heal. I've always had problems with sugar and starch.  The label on my trehalose described it as a multi-functional disaccharide. So now I think the GAPS diet might pave the way for me to eventually be able to use trehalose. The unfortunate thing is it can take a long time for the gut to heal. One website said it can take 6-18 months for a child and longer for an adult.

The positive results most of you have experienced are just amazing! I hope I get to enjoy the same benefits in the future. But first I have some gut healing to do!

Trehalose plain or Trehalose Complex?  How did you use it? As a sugar or only one teaspoon as a medicine?  What else is in the Swanson kind? look at all ingredients.. I am always leary of all packaged things.

But no matter, I agree the gas is on issue even taking only one or two teaspoons - for a few weeks, but no more.    

I hope you heal your insides.  All the best.

Thanks, Spring. I need to be patient in this healing process.

Goldie, The trehalose from Swansons is 100% pure trehalose, nothing else. I took 1/2 teaspoon in grapefruit juice the first time. The last time I took it in water.

Well something just got my attention. I'm looking at the label which describes trehalose as a non-reducing disaccharide consisting of two glucose molecules. Didn't Dr. D say trehalose wasn't meant to be broken down or digested? The four main disaccharides are lactose, sucrose, maltose and isomaltose and I think the body is suppose to break them down into glucose molecules.

I might try small amounts of trehalose while avoiding all other disaccharides and starches and see what happens.

I see Dr D as using Trehalose COMPLEX (TC) as a means to deliver D-RIBOSE.. Google both of these.. He said way above, that it is the D-Ribose that is so expensive.

I personally think there will be more meds developed like this combined with Trehalose as it is a nice delivery of medicine.. a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down..  ;D

Plain T has other purposes and might affect you differently. even though we also experience the same gas.. it may serve a s a healthier sugar, and trigger blood glucose levels less..

Both items are valuable, yet it is the D-Ribose that is interesting..  

I goggled D-Ribose and found 2 interesting issue..  the emphasis are my own.. (but to me it is becoming more interesting as it may not be the glucose level that tells the story but rather what happens to the Insulin within the body.. My next blood test ought to show differences.. I will report next week.  

for Diabetes:::

In the earliest investigation of the relationship between ribose and insulin, Park, et al.1 infused
either glucose, mannose, fructose, xylose, arabinose or ribose into eviscerated rats, with or
without simultaneous insulin injection, for one or two hours. The accumulation of sugar in the
diaphragm, heart, gastrocnemius and brain were measured and compared to baseline values.
Except in the case of ribose, insulin significantly accelerated transport of sugars into muscle. Noeffect of insulin on ribose transport was observed, and this result was also found in later studies.3
No insulin effect on any sugar was seen in brain tissue suggesting carbohydrate transport into the
brain is not facilitated by insulin.
Increased levels of mannitol, ribose and fructose did not appear
in the brain following infusion, leading investigators to conclude these sugars did not pass the
blood brain barrier to an appreciable extent, and explaining why fructose does not relieve the
symptoms of hypoglycemia.


In the same year, Segal, et al.2 infused 10 or 20 grams of ribose over a period of 10 to 25 minutes
into five fasted normal males, three diabetics, and one subject with liver disease, collecting blood
for analysis every five- to 10-minutes for 90-minutes, beginning at the onset of infusion. Blood
glucose levels fell in all subjects by an amount equal to 16% to 65% of pre-infusion level (i.e.,
decline in plasma glucose of 11 to 41 mg%). The hypoglycemic response continued for 20- to 50-
minutes post-infusion, reaching its nadir at 46- to 89-minutes before returning to baseline level in
an average of 115-minutes. The effect was similar in diabetics and normals.

D-Ribose  for :   Fibromialgia, and possibly Neuropathy.. Chronic Fatigue....

Thanks for the link Lola! I listened to it and I think I will have to listen a few more times to take it all in. But at the end where Dr. D mentions how trehalose rocks in neurological issues from mercury toxicity and other things has me believing I really need to try it. Gut and neurological symptoms have been with me a long time.

Goldie, yes I need to be aware of insulin. I've been eating a lot of apples(sugar) for energy so that tells me something is off. I'm just hesitant to use ribose because of my reactions to sugar. I'll see how it goes first with just trehalose and maybe add ribose. I have mold issues and I worry that the mold will use the ribose as food.

That's encouraging to hear Spring. I'll worry less about that now.

I took 1/2 teaspoon of trehalose in water earlier today and had diarrhea this evening. If I don't have anymore diarrhea tonight, I will take the same dose tomorrow and see if there is any change.

I wonder if it would help if you dropped to 1/4 teaspoon two or three times a day.... Some days I take a little over 1/2 teaspoon three times or so. Others I may take 1 teaspoon twice a day. It has a lot to do with what I happen to be doing that day.

No more diarrhea since Friday night. I had 1/2 tsp. trehalose in water again yesterday morning and again this morning. So far so good.

I read that mixing 1 1/2 tsp. of trehalose per pound of ground beef before cooking helps to prevent over-browning. So I did that yesterday. Definitey works! I often bake my burgers, but yesterday I fried them in a pan and when finished they looked like they came out the oven. No dark browning at all. They tasted really good and moist. I ate one last night and another one today (and still no diarrhea). The next time my husband grills burgers, they will be mixed with trehalose.

Oh, I do love this idea!! I will try this with my turkey burgers! I was just thinking this afternoon that I was ready for something a little different, and this sounds like just the thing to try next! Thank you!!

So happy that you've gotten past the diarrhea too! I love this stuff and how it makes everything work so much better! Even Chlorella is behaving like it is on steroids!! (sunny)


Trehalose was all I added to the burgers but I'm sure they would be great with your favorite seasonings too.

No more diarrhea since Friday night. I had 1/2 tsp. trehalose in water again yesterday morning and again this morning. So far so good.

I read that mixing 1 1/2 tsp. of trehalose per pound of ground beef before cooking helps to prevent over-browning. So I did that yesterday. Definitey works! I often bake my burgers, but yesterday I fried them in a pan and when finished they looked like they came out the oven. No dark browning at all. They tasted really good and moist. I ate one last night and another one today (and still no diarrhea). The next time my husband grills burgers, they will be mixed with trehalose.



Thanks for the tip about the trehalose and meat, I will definitely give this a go.  :)

Goldie, it was the plain trehalose that I mixed in meat.

Dianne, yes definitely try it. I'm also going to add it to marinades with other meats and when I brine poultry.

I used the Complex in the carob/buckwheat bread that I make, and I am still astonished at how soft and flexible it is! I plan to make some today. No telling what we will learn to do with this in the future!

Karen, if you have a potted, half-dead flower that won't matter if it finishes it off, try the plain Trehalose on it and let us know how it does!!! (hugegrin) I would put some on a patch of grass outside if I had some of the plain. Now, that would be a hoot if Trehalose could replace some of the so-called fertilizers, wouldn't it!? (sunny)

I posted this in reg to hearing better.. elsewhere.. but it belongs here:

Well coming along here late.. I have recently been able to hit singing notes I have not been able to do for decades..

Voice as such is a direct indicator to health.. If you remember Clinton he had a raspy voice for years even though he head the best doctors check him out .. he developed a heart attack..

Others who sound strange (like one of the female chefs on TV - would do well to check deeper, or get on BTD here and do better with a healthier diet.. but diet alone was not enough..

YET, for me possibly IT TOOK the T-Complex to help greatly.. I am rather certain that it was not only the Trehalose as a sugar substitute, but the L-Ribose in the TC that does it..  


On the other hand.. speaking of hand... NO so far the nails have been breaking off again..

Then again:  NOW I am certain -  saying Trehalose Complex has helped my daily 6 hour headaches!!!  

BECAUSE I now only get them onl;y here and there ---- and always starting with neck muscle stiffening,--- I was able to sort out what is possibly causing the few I get now-a- day.. after a few weeks on TC my daily headaches reduced dramatically to where NOW I only get them IF I allow me to get REALLY aggravated.. a far cry from daily suffering, night or day..

Now, I am going to try taking Magnesium - in Milk of Magnesium as soon as I start getting a twinge and SEE if that will 'connect'.  I sometime thought my elimination could be needing some improvements and have something to do with headaches... so a test = nothing lost.. on the other hand if it should prove to be a Magnesium NEED for when under stress, then it would be interesting to follow that lead.. I learned it from the video in..  worth a look..

I was amazed this past weekend when our sons were here, and one of them went with me to a big box store for several different items. We wound up walking from one end to the other twice as fast as we could walk because we were in a big hurry. (We even chose the long, least-used aisle in the back so we wouldn't run over anyone!) I've always been a fast walker until the last decade so I was amazed to realize later that I was practically running, my six foot son was walking really fast, and we were talking a mile a minute with no breathlessness whatsoever!!! It was incredible! There is no doubt that Trehalose Complex gets the credit because I haven't changed anything else that could have helped this problem. It seemed so "normal" that I didn't realize until after we were out in the parking lot that I was not short of breath in the least. I would have been gasping for breath and having to slow down just weeks ago!!  :o :o :o

So no wonder people can sing better, hitting higher notes, etc.!!! (sunny)

Spring,

That is quite a benefit that you are off your blood pressure medication due to Trehalose.  

I take a low dose pill but I'd love to get off them, too.  I'm still hesitant to stop.

The list of benefits for everyone taking it currently is certainly growing.  That is great to hear.

Joy, what type of BP medication are you taking? I was taking Norvasc and had gradually gotten down to a small amount of it by using Hawthorn twice a day. But I couldn't seem to completely get off it. I have said before that it seems that Trehalose has shifted my supplements into overdrive and maybe that is what happened with the Hawthorn. All I know is that I have tried before, more than once, to come off Norvasc and had to get back on it after a day or so. My life hasn't been exactly smooth sailing the last several weeks, so it isn't as if I am not under any stress....!

If it brings grass back to life after a drought, makes bread soft and flexible, helps my breathing during exertion, etc., I don't know exactly where we can put a limit on what it can do!! I am still trying to get used to the shock of what I've already seen!!!!!  :o

I hear you.  It's a potpourri of benefits and it covers alot of ground.  

I've been taking Lisinopil/HCTZ for a long time now.  I have Quercetin and I just checked and do have Hawthorne capsules,.  I haven't been taking either on a regular basis so maybe that's the answer.

I tried the plain Lisinopril, took only one and my throat felt like it was closing up. When I started the Hawthorn, I dumped about half of it in an empty capsule and gradually worked up to two a day and decreased my BP med at the same time. I love Hawthorn and have never had any problems with it. I also take Quercetin.

I've been taking lisinopril for a long time with no problems (maybe too long?).  I don't know.  I will try to remember to take Hawthorne regularly.  

My litmus test is when I have a doctor's appt.  (almost any doctor even if they are wearing a blue coat instead of a white one).  My blood pressure shoots up automatically before and during the appointment.
If I take my usual dose of BP meds along with Hawthorne and it doesn't skyrocket then I know I'm onto something.

Thanks for the suggestion.

These doctors know very well that many people, if not most, are subject to having their BP rise in their offices. It doesn't mean a thing. Even walking from the waiting room to an exam room can raise a person's BP if they don't let you sit for a bit before they check it. Have you ever had one of them tell you not to cross your legs and have both feet flat on the floor? Breathe slowly and deeply.

Do you have a monitor?  Buying my own was the best thing I did for myself. ReliOn, which is made by OMRON for Walmart, is the best one I've used - Model HEM-741CREL. I like it a lot better than the one OMRON had their own name on! They probably have a newer model now - it has been two or three years since I bought mine.

It may take a few days of taking Hawthorn regularly for it to lower your BP. I used to drink processed organic celery drinks every morning back when mine was giving me a lot of problems.

I chastised a doctor for that very thing a few weeks ago. It was extremely hot, tons of pollen, I had walked quite a distance etc....and was barely in the door and had my BP taken. He was surprised it was higher than usual and then I just shook my head and asked if he was not aware that he should have waited 10-15 minutes and let me relax....my BP is alway great. He seemed very worried and I kept re-affirming that I was not in the least worried to let it go and that I was not going to keel over! (hee,hee,hee!) I took my BP twice a day for a week and sent it to him.

I suppose many patients are not up front with them as well and they are stressed that they will get in trouble...when I say something I mean it and am direct.  :)

Spring,

I never had the experience of a doctor's office telling me never to cross my legs but between your post and Dianne's it is clear that people should be more in charge of how they're blood pressure reacts and doctors should take note.  I also realize that the medical community cannot take a chance on somethings and can be overly cautious.  Im taking two Hawthorne a day for awhile and we'll see what happens.
I did buy a bp monitor at Walmart years ago and used it for awhile.  But the numbers were not always reliable.  I'll take a look for the one that you got that is a newer version.


Dianne,

After two weeks did you hear from the doctor's office about your blood pressure?

Um, okay, well, I'm sort of a skeptical person, but at the same time I'm willing to try anything.  Two non-BTD friends just told me about D-Ribose (in the Trehalose) and that they were able to stop drinking caffeine when they started taking it.  I recently re-developed a heart problem that had vanished with I started this diet 7 years ago and it was suggested that I omit caffeine, use magnesium gel topically over my heart, and take D-Ribose.  Well, in one day's time my heart is back to normal, I had ZERO adjustment time to no caffeine, and I actually feel better.

So I have the same word about Trehalose Complex---definitely WOW!

Wow, Ribbit, that's impressive.  

I haven't noticed such dramatic results but I get "white coast syndrome" and I bought a bp cuff at CVS.  I haven't checked it in a while but after I got it, it was textbook fine at home and ridiculously high at the Dr.'s office. I could always feel my bp going up just driving to the doctor's.  
It was normal when I was at the hospital for a colonoscopy at the beginning of May so it really is just white coat I think.  I think the idea of getting on the scale makes it go up too.  I always either close my eyes or turn around - silly I know.

I hope the TC has the same effect on me.  Maybe I should be taking more.  I take about 1 tsp in the morning in grapefruit juice.  I have a physical scheduled for August.

Ribbit, yes I noticed the need for caffeine was much lessened..

INTERESTING effect as I was suffering form having taken thousands of pills with caffeine and drank mountains of coffee long ago, and suffered greatly during many withdrawals.. and always went back to at least decaf..   Peppermint tea helps to shorten headache days also.  

I feel that maybe TC makes withdrawal much easier .. worth a try for any newbe here wanting to get off caffeine.. Taking TC was noticeable right from the start, I just felt it.. now I am taking it for the 4th month and still find new benefits from it.

Yes, it is a good feeling having this part of the job done! I took an extra one-half teaspoon, and, as usual, I was amazed again how it came to the rescue!! And the funny thing is, it seems so natural and "with it!" I was worried about how my shoulder would feel after all that leaning backwards, and it actually is a LOT better!!

OK Spring.. today Is another NEW day for me..with TC.


HEADACHE...reprt:
Today starting at 4 am I started to have a headache.. way up on my scull cap, not way down my neck, I got up and took milk of Magnesia, and it stayed somewhat the same. In the morning O took another swig.. finally I needed to go to the bathroom as is my morning routine -but no problem..  I think the milk of magnesia is not causing diarrhea when one needs it.. at least so far I have not had any issues- I feel the headache to go away even as i sneezed while typing her for 50 minutes.  

**I think Magnesium is giving me strange dreams..
Had strange dreams, of people I know, they seemed so real that I woke thinking Mom was still with me, or a girlfriend of 40 years ago also who moved away..  In my dream moms pulse went to 35 but she was still doing fine..even though I knew she might pass on.. a second time.. ha.

Courage report:
I was taking my pulse a few times over night and this morning, since I am wanting to make sure that I was ok ( because I am taking stuff to stop circular thinking about food ) my pulse was 78 no problem... I was obviously concerned, but I will keep on eye on it.  TC is giving me courageto start new things .. a good feeling indeed. ..

SPRING hosted the first thread by the same title.. it became so big it started to give me problems.. over 5000 visitors there.. Thanks Spring....and Dr D...  

So this is a new start on Trehalose COMPLEX from Dr D.  I call it TC here ....
to differentiate it from just trehalose when it is ordered elsewhere as a better' sugar' product.

Dr D' Adamo's formula is not for children.[/u]

I take as much as 2 teaspoons a day, measured! as prescribed by Dr D.


To summarize my results as shown in the first thread...

I felt right away that something was working in my brain .. can not tell you exactly how........,
                       I felt mood uplifted. That has been holding for three month.
                       I somehow feel more courage, something I lost over my life time.
                       I like the taste, take a teaspoon full morning and before 3pm with grapefruit juice.  At first I was eating it spread over the whole day with grapefruit slices, but after 2 month I switched and seem to finally have enough grapefruit.
                        I have no more craving for caffeine, I am energized with just TC.
                        I seem to have gotten rid of my white tongue... the first visibly noticeable thing!
                        I can not take it at night or it will energies me to much and allow me to stay up til 11pm hahaha
                        I can mix it with any food I like to sweeten, taste is ok and a good sugar substitute.  I think buying trehalose for those who eat sugar would be a good switch.. I am diabetic so no sugar in my house.. even guest don't mind TC in coffee.  my handyman got energy from it also one lazy afternoon. haha

                         I have offered it to a person with onset of Alzheimer's, she had a vacant look the week before , it seems to help, she is conversing a little better, but maybe that is wishful thinking on my part, I don't know what else is being done for her.. tragic.. it came on in 6 month...

                         For my DIABETES and my blood sugar test, as of last weeks test, all has stayed stable , if not improved a drop.  
                         I feel more FREE being able to think that I CAN have this SUGAR if I wish.
                         It does not interfere with appetite.
                         It can be added to any food without after taste, nor is it changing the taste of the food.

                        For my SKIN, I have used it by rubbing a little bit on my hands and then on my face and neck.. it seems to make the skin feel tighter, and make me look 19 again.. I wish.. but then I take just looking fresh..

                        THE biggest EFFECT it had over time - that my daily HEADACHES came more and more seldom.. to where NOW I only get them when I allow me to stress ME.. In fact I was able to figure out that when I stress, and my neck muscles contract before the headache starts, I can take Magnesium in Milk of Magnesia, and the muscles seem to relax and I can forgo all pills.  I have had daily 6 hours headaches for years!!!


Time to repost Dr D's first intro.. ::

Here are some links from the old postings:
Trehalose- Two glucose (simple sugar molecules) stuck together.

http://www.4yourtype.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HP2004

The cheap way to produce trehalose is to use enzymes to split corn starch (long chains of glucose) into two glucose units.  The expensive way is to extract it from mushrooms.

I did notice one organization selling trehalose claiming to make it from tapioca starch instead of corn starch. I do not know how Swanson product is produced. I looked on their site and could not find information, but I did not email to find out.  For what they sell it for they are not using mushrooms as a source. I imagine the cheaper a product is the more likely it is to be made from and the less likely that it is purified to remove contaminants.


I believe Dr. D has said that generally, those sugar molecules do not break apart in the human body so the effect is not the same as eating "sugar".
This is correct.  The body doesn't absorb or make very much of the enzyme (trehalose) needed to break apart the Trehalose bond to free the 2 glucose molecules.

     (sometimes a fresh fruit isn't an option)

Grapefruit juice works for me, so does lime.. don't care for lemon.. but in ice tea might be good to..

Thanks for the quick response  :)

I think Dr D said recommends not using TC with Tea.

??  My Question about Grapefruit or Grapefruit juice:
Bottled or canned juice would be processed in some way -  if its enzymes or something only in Fresh Grapefruit that works with TC sugar a packaged product might be a waste, ineffective.

The last few days putting magnesium gel on my heart I've had interesting dreams as well.  I hadn't connected that, Goldie, till I just read your post.  I'm sleeping better--like only waking up three or four times in the 10+ hours I'm asleep and it's easier to get out of bed.


I am so glad you are resting better, Ribbit. Hope you continue to get good results.

Spring this thread is the most fun.. it is so full of great suggestions.. and great results to read about.  

Yes I am word long .. it is a good reminder to have me shorten my posts.. sometimes it just needs a good remind..

The problem I ran into on this thread is, that it was not going to the last past and I had to struggle getting there.  

I enjoy your posts and if it was not giving you any grief then it must be my postings..

Let's keep up the good work ... enthusiasm is a good thing.   It's not every day we find what works for us. TC certainly does.

Can someone please answer a few questions for me....

My daughter in law's mother (80 years old) was diagnosed with Alzheimers in January and I was hoping she'd be able to try Trehalose complex...She's taken the information from the NAP site about Trehalose with her to the doctor's office for clearance....yet I'm well aware that medical doctors know little about this supplement at all.  And they ask lots of questions.

I need to know something I can share with her.

How is it taken?  I remember reading somewhere it's mixed in juice.. How much?  How often and what other supplements can't be taken along with it?  I remember reading something about COQ10... don't know if this woman takes that supplement...I do know she's blood type O...

Also does anyone know if there would be reasons why a person should not take it?  She has
no real medical issues, except for spinal stenosis for which she just gets epidural injections.  
She's been given an Alzheimer's drug but I do not know the name of it.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance. :)

You take up to two teaspoons a day.

Trehalose complex powder can be mixed with water or juice if desired.

One teaspoon in a glass of grapefruit juice seems to be common.

A person taking aricept of other anti dementia drugs can also take trehalose complex if desired.

It can be taken in a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon or lime.  I take mine in water with just a dash of pineapple juice.

If you want to supercharge it, add a little ARA6.

Just take it well away from Green Tea or Quercetin.
Posted by: Spring, Saturday, June 16, 2012, 11:13pm; Reply: 634
Black tea could possibly be a problem too. Green tea has 255 mgs. of quercetin per 100 grams compared to 204 in black tea. ARA Plus (veggie caps) have quercetin (120 mgs.) in them so be careful that you don't buy them for this purpose. That is what I am using now until I finish them up - away from Trehalose Complex, of course!(smile)

There is no quercetin in the ARA6 Powder, only in the capsules.

What is the etymology of the word trehalose?
Does it come from the Greek word 'run' or ' stringy hair?'
I see both words in the beginning of it.

Did anyone have EXPERIENCE with TC and Parkinson? -- I gave a container to a person and would like to be able to report good things to him now, ----- or here in the future..  

Did anyone experience PHYSICAL (body) benefits?   -- besides the 'eyesight improvements' someone reported way above..

Did anyone else notice the white film on the tongue gone?  -- mine is so much better.

Did anyone have results on sinus issues?  --- How many month where you taking it?

Are you feeling emotionally more able to be UP?  I find it so, (like being happier) and had on interesting experience today.. : I was exposed to several nasty things and could have allowed me to aggravate me and then get a headache.. I sat on the couch and actually HAD A CHOICE of DECIDING to either aggravate and stew or do circular thinking, or somehow LET it be..

I think this choice was made available to me since TC.. (besides the lessening of headaches- because I would already have had one)  but the emotional availability of a choice is NEW.  Intellectually I could always - think through any issue- but the stress would come on soon enough.   Today I was able to make a better choice.. NO pain..  It's a nice thing to be happier--

For the last 20 years, I have had a great time cheering people through the 5K runners finish gate.. I love INDIVIDUAL efforts participants make to support a good cause.. and each paid 25.- to run, sweat and be in pain in the race to contribute -- Over 20 years the runners and sponsors contributed 1 Million dollars.

The funny thing is both of us were trying to do the same thing from both sides of the ARA issue! I just didn't want anyone to buy the capsules thinking they could take them at the same time as they take TC. I must say it is a pain trying to remember NOT to take the ones I have close to Trehalose Complex! And I don't doubt that the two need to be taken together to benefit me the most. So as much as I love my ARA Plus, I will be glad to leave it behind, and get started on ARA6! (hugegrin)

Spring,

I have to give you all the credit due you for introducing me to ARA6.  So far I find it an amazing supplement.  

More amazing than TC?  Well, maybe in a different way.  haha

Actually, ARA6 does exactlly what its supposed to do.  Trehalose Complex is doing more on an individual basis than I feel we all hoped it would do.  

The data keeps coming in.  All of this, from a sugar.  I know, I know I'm simplifying it too much.  That's why its call Trehalose Complex!

At first, I was afraid my tackle-anything, roaring energy was going to be beyond what my older body would be able to keep up with, but I keep being reminded  over and over again that "beyond" hasn't arrived yet!!

Take it one hour apart from green tea with grapefruit/lemon or lime instead..

Maybe for this one month while you are cleansing your BRAIN & BODY, could you change to some other drink and give TC the best chance to work? ....It is not the caffeine, its other things in the tea...


IF you will not have negative reactions to 'caffeine' changes, I would strongly advise to:

Go on this journey NAKED, with just TC, then SEE and FEEL the EXPERIENCE of your cellular life.


For me it was much more than just a 'sugar' I AM allowed to have it and it's GOOD for ME! 8)

All the best..  ;D

Can anyone have black tea? I'm puzzled about why Dr. D. didn't mention avoiding black as well as green tea within 30 minutes or so of having TC since there is not a whole lot of difference in the quercetin content of the two. Maybe nobody is supposed to be drinking black tea anyway??

Santina, drink all the green tea you want, just drink it 30 - 60 minutes away from your Trehalose Complex! (smile) I have my first TC before breakfast, the next serving a little while before lunch or soon after (according to what else I am doing during the day) and another spoonful before three or four o-clock which totals about 2 teaspoons per day. This is what works for me, but you may find that taking it once or twice a day works for you. It won't be long before you will know what your personal needs are!

Just as a reminder, it is the quercetin in green tea that you will be trying to avoid or in any supplements - the two are great but just not together!  Trehalose Complex has no problem with foods in general. I hope you soon begin to enjoy the benefits of this wonderful supplement!! (hugegrin)

The first thing I put into my stomach in the morning is Trehalose Supreme.  Then I wait until after my shower to start on other things.

I took a break from Trehalose for two days and the difference in my quality of life was very noticeable!  The contrast was a good reality check-in.  There is something about it that promotes cheerfulness and creativity.  It does sustain my energy nicely too, but the emotional balance is an amazing accomplishment for a mere supplement!  :D

I wouldn't be talking about it day and night on here if it were not for those two!!! (hugegrin)
I feel like the kid who finally managed to reach the cookie jar!! ;D
Another thing about Trehalose Complex is that it is a wonderful "regulator" for me! For instance, it demands that I eat when I should, and nobody has to tell me that ARA is good with it because I feel so great when I take this ARA Plus (belatedly, of course, because of the quercetin) that I will replace with ARA6! I have been taking ARA Plus for years, but it has never done for me what it is doing now!!

A really odd thing is that I have changed entirely about how much I eat and when. For my entire life I have eaten a small lunch and a much larger dinner. Well, since I have been taking TC my body is demanding a big lunch and a much, much smaller dinner! All within the course of taking two containers of it!! Don't croak, Goldie, but I just had a double serving of steamed brocolli, a big serving of grated carrots with lemon/oil dressing, a medium-sized sweet potato, half a cucumber with the lemon/oil dressing and a turkey burger loaded with four different spices and herbs!! (hugegrin) My tummy is happy!!

I don't think they know nearly all there is to know about this incredible supplement yet......!!

There's no mistaking how Victoria feels about TC and how its working for her expecially when the post says Trehalose Supreme!

I can't say that I disagree either.

Spring,  I haven't stopped taking it but I would hope I don't get that "let down" feeling if I do.

I'm still taking one teaspoon a day, usually around 11AM.  Seems to be working fine.

I may increase the dose "just a tad".  I've just started my second container.

I can't resist posting this! We have been talking a lot about not taking Trehalose Complex after such an such hour so it won't keep us awake, but last night, after trying different things to help me sleep better for a while now (and TC had definitely helped even though I was taking it before 4:00 PM), I decided to really put TC to the test about this. I certainly didn't have anything to lose. So about twenty or thirty minutes before I went to bed, I took a rounded one-fourth teaspoon serving. Maybe I should mention that I had done some strenuous work yesterday that left my left hip hurting pretty badly, but I decided not to even do my usual treatment for that. So off to bed I went. In just a few minutes I could feel the normal, noticeable changes I get from taking TC, so I'm lying there wondering if the usual "lift" I get is going to keep me awake!

Well, the next thing I know I'm waking up this morning from the most refreshing sleep I've had in I can't remember when!!! I'm so excited I can hardly sit still to write this post!!! This stuff is totally unbelievable!! (sunny)

So I'm out of here to get stuff done!!!(whistle)(whistle)(whistle)

Add me to the "this stuff is totally unbelievable" choir.  I took a tsp this morning first thing at 5am when I got up before taking my walk.  I mixed it with a tsp of ARA6 and the juice of a grapefruit and a little water.  The thing is, my metabolism must be a bit different than Spring.  I didn't feel it immediately.  My walk was a bit more brisk than usual, but I didn't "feel" different.  That all changed when I finally got back and made something to eat.  After eating my boiled egg and salmon this morning, oh boy!....was there ever a noticeable difference!  For all you guys reaching for that Viagra or Cialis, look no further than Trehalose Complex.  Maybe I can finally uncheck that box on my SWAMI.  Going 100% compliant always fixes that condition, so not like it's a huge issue with me.  

I also felt particularly "tingly" all over.  Hard to describe.  At one point, I felt like the Incredible Hulk, like all my muscles were filling with blood and pumped up.  It was a really exhilarating feeling, like I wanted to go work out with weights that very moment.  But, I had to get ready for work.  I also noticed my body heat rising, which was interesting because Teachers are recommended to take the cold shower therapy.  That would feel really good during that body heat phase, but I passed on it.  Later, at work, I was very alert, and rather speedy at the keyboard, more than usual.  This is real energy, like a simmering pot on the stove, that just keeps going.  This is some powerful stuff.  If you are looking for something different from NAP and you maybe had bad luck with NAP supp's in the past, this one is a winner.  Highly recommended!

The main thing, though, is that I feel so much better than I did decades ago!  (sunny)  I just wish it was being used by so many of the people I know who are just living out their days in what seems more like a stupor than anything.

You may have been tired from the work of "burning" waste matter.

The headache is likely from toxins getting dumped into the digestive system...

Once you have taken the TC for several days to a week, you'll probably not feel the headache anymore...

Adam, after going through the systemic Candida treatment, and all that entailed, I guess I just didn't notice the couple or so headaches I had, and the few drops in energy because I knew anything this powerful had to have something like that going on for me to benefit from it. All that passed like a flash, though, compared to the Candida deal.

One thing I forgot to mention earlier is that you absolutely NEED to drink more water than you have been. It helps get all that detoxing stuff out of your system. I found that simply taking more TC helped me, but you might find that less is better! But please do try to keep working with it because you can't imagine the benefits you will get!! Even taking the ARA6 alone when you don't feel up to the TC will give you a boost during detoxing. Good luck!!

TC is helping me similarly! As I fear darkness, I usually hinder myself from falling asleep at night by watching favorite - totally unnecessary - TV series. Since I take TC I must forget about this. TC forces me to fall asleep, sometimes into a very deep sleep, even during daytime if I miss sleeping time. TC is the only tool which could have ever done this for me. Magic.

I don't know if I sleep better, but TODAY.. I was getting up and sitting, sipping my morning drink when I was surprised BY THE THOUGHT: I don't have anything to complain!  so why do it? why have I done it before?  

THIS IS NEW!   ... I went to a running race and had been in touch with people who had real sad stories to tell.. Like one runner is the last of his family to survive at 27.. he had 11 siblings and his dad is gone to.. three men had no use of their legs, people walked to support, some hobbling in pain at the finish, bent over, and out of breath.. I was deeply moved to a place where I can see that:   What we say is important, yet we say things differently to different people in different ways.  

I thought about that and HAD THE BRAIN SPACE to recognize THAT.  Like with a new lover, we would not complain to about little things, while to on old friend, we seem to feel more at ease to lay out all our issues.  ............... Today I came away BEING GRATEFUL TO all who have heard me here complain. You have listened and supported me here>>>>>>> it is important!  AND YET I found my thoughts to be less 'oppressed' today.  This all is TC. It is clearing away trashy thinking somewhere and letting me (I said it before) : MAKING ME brave again..       INTERESTING!    

I wonder if that is all placebo.. I do not care, so long as it continues to do it's work! in my head!

DR. D. You introduced Trehalose Complex with D-Ribose in a one page blurb..  here is the question: IS there way more to this TC ?  Are there different forms of Trehalose??? which address different illnesses?  

Could you elaborate in some teaching form? Please at some point,,,,,  

How much should a Alzheimer patient be getting.. she is just slowly losing her memory for the last 6 month.. she still responds to questions properly but does not initiate any.    

For a person diagnosed with PLM who survived for 18 month, how much to take, and to expect any benefit?  

For Lupus, what would make it work?

For Lyme .. will it feed the micro organisms or paracites -  or help to eliminate them?

For a person after cancer surgery on her leg, having contracted on infection, how much to take? Can it also be used ON wounds? - if nothing else works?  

Is more better?  Should one also take just plain Trehalose in addition to TC?  

PLAIN Trehalose?? is it good for kids? twins with Autism?


I  am not expecting on answer here.. but can we get bigger explanation on the Trehalose Complex..

The TC thread on here is fab.. but it does not YET show where it will cure all sorts of serious illness.  

I received the email item below, it is explicitly talking about NEW sugar cures.. for all sorts of issues, diabetes, prostate cancer and chronic sinus.

The good THINKING about BTD is that I do not have to believe all the junk I get in email or in stores, on TV.  I can trust that I will do fine with BTD and NAP.  

Yet, DR. D. You introduced TC in a one page blurb.. and here is my the question:   Is there more to it?  Would you have me read some other research stuff?  What do you teach your students on TC?  AM I EXPECTING to much from Trehalose Complex?      Will there be other things added to Trehalose and sold later?

COULD YOU maybe elaborate in some form and set me and others straight?   I do not wish to listen to others sales talk.. your presentation will not be hype, You I trust..
THANK YOU FOR ALL the help and proper information.. You are saving LIVES every day!


Here is the other guys connection.. a sales pitch from beginning to end..

Goldie, I wouldn't brush Dr. Wright off as just a "salesman." He has done some very good work, and many people have benefited from it. I have read a lot of what he has had to say about many things, and much of it could be used in conjunction with our SWAMI diets.

I will say this, though, I hate those "presentations," and if I want to learn more about what they have going at any time, I can go to their website and learn what I want to know. I've never spent a penny on their supplements, but that doesn't mean they are worthless. People like him are definitely on the side of sparing people as much as possible from the assaults of modern medicine. So I want to give him his due for that!

Goldie, there is no way this stuff is a placebo! There are too many of us examining it from too many angles, and we are used to being very critical of anything that goes into our bodies, and how we react to it!! We aren't newbies to supplements!!  ;D

I just heard from someone I had recommended TC to, and they have been taking it a few weeks now. They were saying that they had hurt their back playing racket ball recently, but they were sleeping fine! This person hardly EVER slept fine in the BEST of circumstances before taking TC! They are sixty-three years old and really fast-paced racket ball is their favorite exercise!!  (sunny)

Quoted from yaeli
TC is helping me similarly! As I fear darkness, I usually hinder myself from falling asleep at night by watching favorite - totally unnecessary - TV series. Since I take TC I must forget about this. TC forces me to fall asleep, sometimes into a very deep sleep, even during daytime if I miss sleeping time. TC is the only tool which could have ever done this for me. Magic.

There is no telling how much this is going to help your overall health, Yaeli!! Not getting enough sleep is so destructive. People pay out a lot of money to get help for such things as fear of darkness. I'm just to the point of scratching my head wondering what will turn up next that TC has helped! (sunny)

can't this all also be done by beta-glucans ??)

Often people say it's all about sugars- next says all about aminoacids... so ??).....
I think both variants are helpful but can't be claimed as *the solution of going against all kinds of diseases*... there still stays the question of the so called *electron-donors*..we need this also to create the needed energies in our bodies...and for cell reproductions as well.....and sometimes I'm asking myselve if the placebo effect isnt' be seen all overthere and  our mental forces are always underestimated for selfhealing processes ??)...(shrug)(cool)

p.s.

forgot to mention that I think this is also the value given to so called:intentions... where's an intention..there's an expectancy... and both are forms of energy...
proof here is: *the intention experiment* of Lynne Mc.Taggart (author of THE FIELD)....

Since Trehalose Complex makes the internal process of cells more efficient, due to the cleaning out of misfolded proteins, any cell that is aided will make whatever its function is run smoother...  Any bodily function may be affected.

I had no "expectancy" whatsoever about Trehalose Complex any more than I have done about any supplement I've taken in my life. What I do know is that Dr. D. has proven himself and his work over and over again, and I don't think he has deliberately pumped up some sort of "expectancy" about TC! (smile) I actually didn't have a clue about what TC would do for me personally because I certainly had no clue where any problems were. How could anyone? We know outward signs, of course, of some things, but there are many, many more that will only reveal themselves more and more as time goes on. How about this? Put some plain Trehalose on a plant and see what happens! They certainly don't have any preconceived notions about anything! (sunny) And how about this? Has anyone noticed people who take supplements and profess no benefits whatsoever from them, but when you start asking questions about different health problems  that you know have disappeared and remind them, they exclaim, "Oh, yes, I don't have those problems anymore!" I suppose they just vanished into thin air! Right!  ::) (sunny)

Going back to your first post, I don't think I've heard anyone say that something was all about amino acids or all about sugars who had any understanding of the human body. That is a pretty broad brush....... Were you wondering if it could/should be all about being "done by beta-glucans?" (smile) If we stopped eating and depended on Trehalose Complex to solve all our health problems we would be classed pretty dimwitted in my opinion! Trehalose Complex is simply one of a great many aspects of our journey toward a state of well-being. (smile)

The advancement of the "placebo effect" is practiced all around us all the time. Many Doctors DEPEND on it because they don't have anything else to offer. They would be out of business in no time without it. Some poor souls actually get a "placebo effect" from hearing the soothing voice of one of these "doctors." Please, just give me a break!!! Gritting my teeth!!!  ::) ::)

C-sharp and Cloe.. Thanks for the links IN THE OTHER thread.. no longer there..

I will research all the posts here to find the links..

Will I be told about 'serious' illness questions and will the instructions be made clear on dosage for short and long term use? I will listen.. and hope so ..

I know that it may be not be reasonable to EXPECT physical help (from TC) in either a short time or over several month for serious illness. Yet it becomes a question of advancing info about TC to others - rather then being afraid to mention it, because I lack backup info.  

My question on dosage for TC for PML is an issue where the 50 year old is expected to be dead in less then 6 month.. on Alzheimer's, every day lost is important to the family.. For Autistic children 9 year old, any hope is better than none..same for Lyme patients..  Open sore wound care for a 42 year old cancer survivor is serious.. they all are.. Should they get TC for such serious issues and how much?

Goldie, I don't have any idea how much anyone should take of TC to address serious illnesses, but I know I have taken more than 2 teaspoons a day at times with no apparent problems. One thing for sure, I would be a whole lot more worried about what more than two teaspoons of ordinary sugar would do to me than that much TC!!!

I remember when my sister just older than me and I were young teens making fudge and eating the whole batch while our mother was gone to the grocery!!  :o :o :o :o  We had this dumb thought that if we ate it all she wouldn't know what we had been up to - like she couldn't smell the stuff all over the house!! She never mentioned it though. Maybe she thought we were making hot chocolate! But just imagine eating nearly a cupful of sugar at one time!!! Thankfully, we didn't do that very often, and we always loaded it with nuts, so there was that, at least! It is a wonder that we weren't fat, but we never were.

Oh, and by the way, I am still taking a rounded one-fourth teaspoon at night of TC and sleeping so much better!! (sunny)

I'm feeling exhausted but I know why.  When I hurt my wrist last week I was in so much pain that I took quite a bit of Advil and now I'm having a flare up of ulcerative colitis.  In addition to the bowel symptoms, it often makes me feel like I've got a fever, achy joints, etc.  I did take an extra teaspoon of the TC yesterday and I took my normal amount this morning.  This will pass but I'm paying for the pain meds I took last week.  I can take a little of that stuff which I do sometimes when I play golf but every few hours for a couple of days did me in.  The pain was so extreme that I needed something though.  I also had my dental implant finally put in and my gums were sensitive from that too.

I'm just starting my second container and still taking a level spoonful once a day in the late morning or afternoon.  I have always had a sweet tooth and indulged it.  I know too much sugar.

Now here I am taking sugar in another form and it has decreased my craving for sweets other than the sweetness from fresh fruit.

Have you ever used creams and/or ointments on a painful spot like your wrist, Jane? That works really well for me. Also, the old standby Boswellia is amazing!  Like I've said before, everything I use is working better now since I started taking Trehalose. I think it must have "fixed" something in my tongue and stomach, and the way I absorb things through the skin really fast!! (smile)

I certainly hope your summer isn't ruined because of this... :-/ I thought I was going to be hopping around like a rabbit for months after I hurt my little toe, but the recovery was simply amazing!! I can wear all my shoes, even pumps, with no problem, and I never notice any pain whatsoever - climbing ladders or whatever. I don't think I ever hurt as bad in my life from anything like that! Even when a large piece of paneling fell on top of my foot, it didn't hurt as bad. Or falling over backwards over a small wall around the garden......Or when I fell over backwards and hit a 2 inch metal pipe just an inch to the right of my spine. It still scares me to think about that one!

But in spite of all these things and many others that were similar, I never took any pain medication for them because I was able to use these creams/ointments to keep the pain down enough to live with it. One night I was in so much pain in so many different places I was afraid to use the same cream all over, so I used three different ones on separate larges areas. It worked too! (smile)

Hope it is helpful, Spring.  :)  It's in all my local natural food stores and I've been using it for years at the first sign of joint pain.  

It seems to be most effective for acute pain, as in a twist or strained joint.  I used it a few days ago when I stubbed my toe severely.  I ran cold water on the toe for a minute, dried it and applied Toprican generously.  The next morning, the only bruising (quite purple) was a thin strip where I had neglected to spread the cream.

I've used it on chronic arthritis with some benefit, although not as fast acting in its' results. In this case, it needs to be used daily for an ongoing basis for a while, and then you notice there hasn't been any pain for a while.  ;)

It is very good in cases where you might overuse a joint and it's very sore the next day.  The trick is to not wait too long before using the cream.

WOW! This waxes stranger and stranger!! To go back a few years, it seemed that getting enough sleep was my biggest challenge. I was diagnosed with a mild case of sleep apnea and C-Pap helped a lot with getting more restful sleep and the panic attacks, but I still was not getting enough sleep. About half enough!! Anyway, I started taking Trehalose Complex, and I was energized to the nth for the last two months except at night when I began to sleep much better. So here is the strange part:

Even with taking more Trehalose, for the last week or so every time I have taken it I got a lot more sleepy during the day than I had been since I started taking it, and it has gradually gotten more noticeable. Also, during the week I had started taking 1/4 teaspoon of TC at night and was sleeping better than I have in years!

Well, today after I went ahead and took my morning serving of Trehalose Complex in spite of having these thoughts about the changes that were taking place, I got so sleepy I thought I was going to have to go back to bed!!! Unheard of!!! So, to continue with this experiment, I have not taken any since, and I am functioning much better than I was this time yesterday!! So tonight I am taking the plunge and having twice as much TC and see what happens!! I can hardly wait to see how this goes!!! If I am awake all night or sleep like a baby, hopefully, you will hear about it one way or the other!!  (hugegrin)

So TC has changed my lifetime eating habit to a better one, and now I will see what it can do about my sleeping problem!!! This is so amazing! (sunny)

a couple of thoughts, Spring -

You may be sleep deficient and you're now having a chance (as demanded by your body) to restore yourself in this way.  If this is the case, I have a feeling that after a while, this daytime sleepy effect will wear off.

If it's really troublesome, you might take periodic breaks from TC.  Maybe on weekends or something of that sort.

I've only read snippits of this thread, but I started taking trehalose yesterday, and it seems to really be helping me lose weight (in addition to better energy and focus).

Has anybody else noticed that benefit?

Quoted from Victoria
a couple of thoughts, Spring -

You may be sleep deficient and you're now having a chance (as demanded by your body) to restore yourself in this way.  If this is the case, I have a feeling that after a while, this daytime sleepy effect will wear off.

There is absolutely no question that I am sleep deficient, Victoria !! (smile) But I have been sleeping better since starting the TC and, thankfully, as today has worn on, I'm getting less and less sleepy because of that.

This really isn't troublesome at all because I am very excited about this new turn of events!!! I think TC might even work better for me at night for more reasons than helping me sleep. Anyway, time will tell! (sunny)

LOL Melissa, we have been screaming about the clarity and energy for months!! We haven't been able to shut up about it! LOL But this sleepiness in the day time is new, so I'm pretty excited about getting my sleep disorder worked out by taking TC in the evening. (sunny)

Not in one day for certain.. are you taking TC or plain?  I am currently on a very rigid pattern of what I eat, (I wish to drop weight,) and I am still taking TC every morning and afternoon.  I get energy from it.   It also helps, in my case where there is not much food early in the day (against normal BTD)  to make me feel as if I had some food, to satisfy my belly.  It works in minutes to settle my stomach down.  

I am currently taking a gulp of Milk of Magnesia, to settle my muscles down before they act up and give me neck and head pain.  It is making me slightly nauseas, so the spoon of TC helps a lot.  

If this magnesium regiment works further against my headaches, I will continue, but I would very much like to switch to foods that will have enough Magnesium in them, but for the next few weeks that is out of the question.  At least TC settled my issues down enough to afford me choices.. by having reduced my headaches to near none.. and making me aware of the muscle tension - causing the headaches- showing me that magnesium helps to prevent the muscle cramps. TC helped to stop the cycle, to show me that I needed additional Magnesium.. Unknown to me before!

How are you seeing weight loss in you?

Read elsewhere. Imagine this!?:

I would like to direct you to a minireview from Dr. Higashiama, a research team leader at the trehalose manufacturer Hayashibara Co. Some important practical applications are discussed in detail:

“In this application, we examined the suppressive effect of trehalose on human body odor. The typical odor of a senior layer (odor from seniors) increases with age, especially 55 years or older. This odor contains unsaturated aldehydes such as 2-nonenal and 2-octenal. These aldehydes are produced by the degradation of unsaturated fatty acid (palmitoleic acid) in aged people’s skin. The subjects (55 years or older) were selected from our company. After a shower, their body was sprayed with a 2 % trehalose solution. They put on new underwear after the spray. Twenty hours later, the unsaturated aldehydes were sampled from the used underwear shown in this system using DNPH-column. The trapped aldehydes were eluted from this column and were analyzed by gas chromatography. The results showed a decrease of about 70 % in odor from seniors due to the action of trehalose (Fig. 7). This result indicates that trehalose has a suppressive effect on the formation of the odor released by the seniors’ bodies. The same results came out with the oxidation of fatty acid. Therefore, the application of trehalose for cosmetic fields is expected.”

Yes, Victoria, I took one-half teaspoon last night, and my regular servings today. I have felt wonderful! And the amazing thing is that this is in spite of my right knee giving me problems yesterday evening and last night! I had been getting up and down off a stool near the floor working on my foyer project and twisted it somehow when I was getting up - one time too many! Anyway, it is fine today.(sunny)

Had you seen the article before about body odor that I posted? If we were around people with this sort of problem, we could mix up Trehalose in a spray bottle with water and give them a nice, harmless spray! I am not, so I can't give this a try to see if it works. One of my sons used to have problems with foot odor when he wore his running shoes, but I haven't asked him lately if he is still bothered with it. I will suggest it to him if he is.

I couldn't agree with you more, Goldie! I have gone through a few changes since starting TC. At first I was not about to take it at night because I was already having trouble sleeping, but as I continued taking it, my sleep was getting more restful. At the same time, though, I was gradually getting more and more sleepy in the daytime instead of feeling as energized as I had been. Now that I am able to take an extra 1/2 teaspoon at night, I am getting a lot more benefit from my sleep and feeling fantastic in the AM! It is incredible!

I love this stuff! But I think we have to work with it as individuals to get the best benefit from it. You have been a strong leader in that, for sure!! (sunny)

Guess what I took with me?  Of course, Trehalose and ARA6.  I used it in the shower this AM to see what it would do for the itching on my leg.  Will report on that result in a few days.

Well, she lives in another state now and is having other issues to contend with recently that have to do with a car accident some years ago that nearly killed her. So her skin is the last thing on her mind right now, and I'm not able to be there to fix her creams for her.  :-/
But I will tell you this! I have an old pair of walking shoes that had definitely seen their best days and didn't smell all that good, either!! Not terrible, but ready to be thrown out because they are not washable! I put some of the TC that I had put in my blender earlier in a tiny bit of water and wiped it on my feet really well all over and put these shoes on. I walked around in them all afternoon yesterday and this morning, and they don't smell like the same shoes at all!! I suppose I could have put this concoction in a spray bottle and simply sprayed the shoes, but I'm not ready to waste any of it yet!! I've run out of descriptive words to use for this stuff!!

OK. since i am conservative, i will not just go ahead and "jump" on the bandwagon, but i will certainly put a "foot" on the bandwagon. After reading all the happy messages about the trehalose, i decided to order some and try it out. It has only been a week, but i have lost about 2-3 pounds without doing anything different. I also feel like my skin looks plumper and fresher. it is suble though. i haven't felt the energy/elation but i'll finish the jar and see what happens.

LOL I am about as conservative as a person could get when I am considering what I will put into my body, whether it is foods or supplements! I have been this way most of my life. We see people all around us throwing down what amounts to garbage with never a thought about what it is doing to their bodies! To me, one of the most interesting things about this forum is that it is made up of people who actually have learned to "listen" to their bodies through years of experience, embrace what supports better health for them and push away, very emphatically, from what they know will harm them! And, no matter their ages, they are still enthusiastically learning, learning, learning!!! It is addictive being around them!!

amyflood... Did you get TC or plain? how much have you been taking? one full spoon or less?

I would love to hear from someone who has plain Trehalose and is using it in family settings.. how much would one use?

How are you eating that you drop weight?  most interesting.. You are O .. I would love some tips.. how long are you on BTD?  --- might it be that TC works on different levels according to your previous sugar intake?  Like, if one would be using regular sugar all day in drinks, then switch to TC would it make a difference? yes I think it might, calorie wise..

I gave up all sugars long ago.. so it is not working for me in that way. But when I wish for a sweet treat I can have a 1/4 spoon directly on my tongue and feel satisfied at least being able to have some kind of treat, and getting a little lift.. - even as I am trying to drop weight, doing all sorts of other things- it is nice to know that this sugar is good for me..   8)

Question:  Has anyone eaten T or TC in place of sugar? Does it work from that perspective?        

Here is why I ask.. OK so I am deciding every day what to eat.. and hopefully not gain 5 pounds in a (bad) week. ...

So, does anyone think that TC could substitute for my desires to eat 'all that I see' habit.  

--- Insight: I seem to have done this all my life.. BIG discovery-- Doh -- In other threads I have stated that when I was a skinny kid, I shopped for snacks in store to store, before shopping and cooking the (daily) full 4 course lunches.  I ate at least 100 calories in every one place, bakery, butcher and grocery store, yet did not gain, so all I ate was sustenance, fresh, whole, and sweet. I was size 5 then--- the insight here today is that I still do that IF I go shopping when I am hungry--- a bad move.

And the 'shopping food for eating right now' is the same, (today) whether I do it in a store, or when going out with friends, food in my 'eyesight' makes me want some of this and that and some other thing.. The want is as big as the color or taste differences available.  If food is not available I am contented also-- but here is the rub-- I can not go shopping or visiting when hungry! ---  and I am hungry all day....WoW--- (sorry for this diatribe)...

SO here is my 2. question: Is there a chance that I could eat TC -(never mind the suggested portions) and possibly get more out of it, instead of just 'sugar medicine' that is good for me ????  
Could I possibly address some place in my brain (where hunger sits) and accomplish a diversion to create MY freedom, not to eat unwanted foods?   I wonder.... has anyone tired this at all?

The interesting thing is, that since the 'Trehalose' does NOT trigger my diabetic sugar response of more insulin, yet I get a feeling of sweetness, would more be able to become a safety-net for my constant (upper - under the ribs) 'hunger'?  

I KNOW my hunger comes from feeling (imagined or not) some (esophageal upper) digesting issues.. sorry gross- If I was told that I have a tapeworm who eats my food (right there in the stomach), I would believe it.. that is how my 'stomach' feels.. whatever makes me wish for food, (in the stomach/brain connection) is a miserable 'habit' or compulsion that I interpret as discomfort.  No fun at all.  

So, I am meandering... could there be a solution to still my desires?  Could TC or plain T solve my DILEMMA? ????   Do others here have similar experiences?

I am wondering, could or should I investigate the need for some stomach remedy, that would settle my stomach juices? and relax that connection to the brain via a 2 way NERVE Lola recently wrote about, that in mice was stilled (or disrupted) with cayenne pepper?    I wonder could T or TC do the same?    

Has anyone eaten TC or T in place of sugar? Does it work from that perspective?  How much T is too much?

It is staggering to me to think of the abiding hunger that you have, Goldie! I would be that way, I think, if I ate things that I should avoid because every mouthful would keep building on the one before it until I would be insanely looking for the next "fix" because of the horrors of feeling terrible all the time. It would be a vicious cycle. Thankfully, I have never gotten even close to that condition in my lifetime because I have been cautious about what I have eaten for most of my life. It may go back to the horror I went through with the reaction I had to honey when I was a child. I learned very early that some foods can do us in - big time! And I didn't want that to happen to me again if I could possibly help it!

I keep wondering if your diabetes is your biggest challenge in trying to regulate what you eat. I have known diabetics who wanted to eat everything in sight that they shouldn't, and others who are thin and never seem to be bothered by that at all. So maybe diabetes is not the root of it. The other thought is that your body is needing something that you are not getting, and you will continue to suffer this terrible feeling until that is addressed.

If you can think back over the last several days to a time when you felt sufficed for a reasonable length of time, maybe you could figure out what you ate or did that brought that about. What foods you ate, what supplements you took, your activities, etc.

As for how much more Trehalose Complex or Trehalose it would be safe for you to consume, I don't think there is an answer for that yet and may not be for a while. Dr. D. said he took a tablespoonful every morning (unless that was one of those famous "misprints!!"). (smile) But I'm not brave enough to try that much at once. Not yet. (smile)

Goldie, it also might be a side effect of the precriptions you are on if you take some for your diabetes. But isn't that the whole being O thing--that we are always hungry? i could graze all day! i did do intermittent fasting for about 2 months and that helped me drop 15 lbs, but i find it increasingly hard to do it. right now, i just try to push back breakfast. so typically i would have breakfast at around 6 am, now i have it at 10 am (or later) depending on how busy i am at work. good luck!

Today I had on interesting experience.. the sort of ill feeling right under my ribs.. a spot of a sliver dollar.. had it a life time.. my doc said it is the exit out of the stomach , or maybe the entrance.. Ok no news there.. But then I had to wait someplace and all they had was on apple.. I ate it and felt better very soon.. SO WHAT is it?    ****

... and for the foods I ate as a kid, I basically think it was all FATTY pastries with cream and butter, cold cuts with relative fatty veal and always chocolate, all full of fat.. I used to eat all that because it felt ok..I never ever thought about it.

I did not know then that I was sensitive to milk and suffered belly aches all day..

***** I still wonder, should I try more stomach remedies other than what NAP sells?  Like try Prilosec?   Or some other thing that contains ALLOWABLE pepper? (as per Lola's story to numb the nerve endings which communicate with the brain.. Just meandering..  :-/... )

Warming spices, such as ginger, can help the stomach and digestion in most cases.  How does cinnamon feel to your body?  It is also an herb that is used as a natural remedy to regulate blood sugar.

I literally gasped when I read Prilosec! If you want more problems, start taking that stuff! I think if you would FORCE yourself to sip veggie drinks all day long aside from your regular diet, you would see a major difference in the way your stomach feels. You certainly don't need anymore garbage down there.  :o

I think people in general highly underestimate what veggie drinks can do for their stomachs! I have suffered agonies with my stomach in the past, and I know for an undeniable fact that veggie drinks help heal and soothe whatever ails it. Stomach and esophageal pain has kept me awake at night for thousands of hours during my lifetime, and all that is part of the reason I have trouble sleeping at night now. It is almost like my body forgot how to sleep because of lying awake at night for so many years. I'm going to have a drink right now. See you later......

Wow, still.

Yesterday I had an evaluation for sensory integration disorder with an Occupational Therapist.  (I finally realized there is such a thing and my kids have it, and I realized I definitely have it too, so I found a therapist who would take adult patients for it) I was worried he would say nothing was wrong with me, like all other doctors have, so I skipped the trahalose in the morning so that my symptoms would be at their worst.  So I drove and drove in the hot sun, went around in circles at the medical center trying to find the office, then got there to a hospital like setting with fluorescent lights and lots of noise.  I think I shouldn't have skipped the trehalose, because by the time he did all the tests (which are designed to be annoying but not too annoying) I was just crawling out of my skin and nauseated.  The good news was he will help me, but I'll be sure and take my trehalose before my treatments so that they can go further.  

Still enjoying the extra energy and focus from the trehalose, and still losing weight.  I don't know if it's "making" me lose weight, or just helping me do what I have to do to lose weight.

As for the Trehalose Complex... and my brain... It helped with some feeling of 'less' hope.. but not yet my ability to make sure that I think better..

I am over reacting here, but I find it hard to 'access' very short term stuff I just typed, or forgetting in which thread it was that I saw something.I never remember names..

Just today there was word shown in my spell check and I had forgotten how I used that word.. I mean really, this memory stuff better get improved soon. :-/

Sorry, you couldn't get the right "fit" with Trehalose Complex. The people I personally know who are on TC and had any kind of "weird" feelings felt all right when they took a smaller amount and gradually worked up from there to whatever was comfortable for them. Actually, I am not taking it for the same things that Tranquility Base and Cortiguard address. I want things "fixed," and I know for myself that road is not always "tranquil!!" When I am feeling great, though, which is most of the time, it makes any little effort to get to that point overwhelmingly worthwhile!!(sunny)

Goldie, yes, I wish Sensory Integration Disorders were more well known.  I'll probably write a blog about it or start a thread about it.  I thought it was just a difficult part of my personality that I had to live with and could only adapt to but never change.  This should be an interesting journey.  NMT helped so that last summer I could stand to take my boys to the carnival, and it actually helped me figure out how extensive I have it...even though I don't think my NMT practitioner even knows what to call it yet.  There's even such a thing (not quite recognized by psychiatrists though) called Sensory Affective Disorder, which explains my Seasonal Affective Disorder quite concisely, so maybe I'll trade one disorder for another :)

...........yet in my veg JUICE only;y no pulp, I use any green  watery items available.. when I was able to buy Organic dandelion a foot long I made them for about 6 weeks .. drank it by the glass full.. it has a bitter green taste, I could do it then, but it can make you woozy - it is best mixed with other things and used just a few leaves..

The best tasting things are carrots, celery, and so on.. I believe in:

Drink your vegetables (organic whatever you can get) and eat your fruit whole.

  
Posted by: Spring, Saturday, June 30, 2012, 3:24pm; Reply: 774
Drea, I always use organic veggies, of course, but my drinks are a little different from Goldie's! I don't juice! I'm a believer in making things as simple as possible, and that way I know I will be more apt to take the time to do it day in and day out! I throw whatever suits my mood at the time into my blender with just enough filtered water to make it drinkable, blend thoroughly and drink!! For my own needs, there is nothing better than Romaine lettuce, celery, cucumber and carrots. These together are a powerhouse for me and so soothing to my esophagus and stomach! But any number of vegetables can be used, and I have added different ones to my basic drink. I never add fruit to it, though.

I have tried to do a whole blender full at once to drink during the day, but, naturally, it has a tendency to darken in the fridge so I only did that back when I wasn't feeling well enough to do anything else. Since Trehalose has come along I think I will try using some of that to help "preserve" it and see what happens. If it works, that would save a lot of time and be wonderful, especially, if I weren't feeling well.

This is certainly a fast, easy way to enjoy a LOT of veggies and their wonderful benefits!! (sunny)

Spring, you must have a Vitamix or Blendtec.  When I've tried to blend up raw vegetables, it's been an utter failure.  The carrots and kale, etc. just end up too unblended for my tastes.  I like a drink to be smooth.

How do you make it work?
Posted by: Spring, Saturday, June 30, 2012, 5:38pm; Reply: 776
I don't have a Vitamix or Blendtec, but this thirty-five year old Sunbeam Deluxe blender does the job in no time!! It really is powerful!! (smile) But I do have to put enough water in to get everything going and, also, to make it drinkable. I cut the carrots, cucumbers and celery into one-half inch sections. The lettuce I just break up in pieces. I make one large glassful at a time which is about what I would consider a large salad.

Nobody likes a good salad any better than I do, but sometimes I just want something to drink between meals or something to soothe my esophagus and/or stomach. I can have problems if I do any heavy lifting or even breathe something toxic. But this has worked over and over again! Really gives me a nice lift too! (sunny)

I am getting more and more amazed at the research that has been going on about Trehalose for years, and if it had not been for Dr. D. and HIS research most of us would never have heard a single word about it. Not any time soon anyway. Let alone the wonderful benefits from taking it as a complex! I told another friend about it this week, and she was scribbling as I talked because she wanted to try it.

Quoted from C_Sharp


In Ireland nearly all trehalose products are Treha™ (Cargill's brand of Trehalose) whether the packets say Treha™ or not. This is because EU regulations grants Cargill pretty much exclusive rights to the market (at least that is the way it appears to me). It is regulated as a "novel food ingredient."

Treha™ is made from corn starch.



Found a UK supplier... this is what he e-mailed me to my questions:

- what is the source of the Trehalose?
- how pure is it?
- if it is derived from corn/ maize is this sourse GMO free?
- do you post to Eire? Costs?

Hi yvonne thanks for you great questions. Trehalose is made from either corn or tapioca starch. It is certified free from GMO ingredients and also BSE. We ship to Ireland and charge the postal costs. Royal mail costs

- Is it possible to buy the Tapioca Trehalose separately as I have digestive issues with corn...
- If not, how pure is the Corn one?

Hi Yvonne - the end product is exactly the same - why don't i send you a small sample - say 100gm so you can try it. The source of the starch to make the product appears to have changed over time - sometimes they have used corn and sometimes tapioca.
Paul

This is what his website is saying about the manufacture of their Trehalose:
http://www.trehalose.co.uk/trehalose-news/trehalose-science/trehalose-introduction

He did send me the sample- arrived today.

So what do you all think?

How will I know if I react 'badly' to the Trehalose if it wasn't pure enough?
I generally get away with 'sins' so I am not a good 'control' person  :-/

As more cells get more healthy, illness will be driven out, so less mis-folded proteins will be made.  Ultimately, there will be a lower mis-folded protein load to clean-up as a maintenance task.

I have definitely found this to be true for myself! Even my supplements seemed to have awakened from a long sleep!!! As of today I am 70 years old, and I feel better than I did at forty!!!!!!!!!!

  Well, I've finished my first container of Trehalose Complex.  I think it's helping, though I couldn't say there's any Wow factor for me.  I started with low doses, as I found it gave me a headache when I took the full dose at first.  Everyone's comments helped me see that I could start with lower doses and work my way up.  I've built up to a full tsp. first thing in the morning when I either head to Curves or hop in the infrared sauna.  I find myself sweating more in both cases.  I sure drink alot more at Curves too.  I think it has helped curb my appetite somewhat, and I think it also broke the weight loss plateau I've been on.  I'm also taking 1/2 - 3/4 tsp. at bedtime.  It doesn't bother my sleep at all.  I usually add ARA6 each time I take it too.
   I'm into my second container and I have 2 more containers in the pantry.  Things never seem to work fast on me, but I do intend to work my way through all my containers and see how things go.

BCgal, I never expected Trehalose Complex to cause any noticeable effects, either, at first, because I was just going by results from other supplements I have taken in the past. But it was like I got hit with something that was like what I had hoped for from all the supplements put together that I had ever taken in the past!! And I am STILL marveling at this ride!! Some days I need more, and some days I need less.

And I am like you about the sweating. When I work outside in the evenings or early mornings, I pour sweat. It gives me the most wonderful, exhilarating feeling! And I feel so clean even though sometimes I am caked with dirt!!

I am happy that you are seeing results in different ways! I am expecting another grandchild in a few weeks, and that gives me another reason to want to get into good shape!! (smile)

No, they don't live here, but it is an easy three hour trip. We do miss them here since they moved away, but it has worked out really well for them, so I can't complain. She will have to have another C-section that went fine before, so we are hoping for the best. And thanks for your good wishes!

I have taken close to two containers of TC. Just wish I had gotten started on it earlier. But it has worked such wonders so far, that I can't really complain about that either. Something I have found that works well for me is if I get a tiny bit jittery from taking a little too much, I pour a very small amount out of a capsule of Holy Basil and take it. Calms me down right away, but I still have plenty of energy. I really like that combination, but I don't have to use it very often.

I know you are so looking forward to having a whole week with your grandchildren! Hope you have a wonderful time, and don't forget the TC! And a little Holy Basil if you have it. Or maybe you have the tea which would be great too. (smile)

Paul, do you mean that you are gaining weight?
I was gaining slowly for moths, but the trehalose seems to be reversing that in general.  People who had not seen me for the first few weeks of consuming trehalose asked me if I had lost weight.  I looked in the mirror, and it did seem less padded and more chisled.  I typically loose weight first in my face and hands.

I had not really lost weight at that time, but now, about a month later with weight is comming down gradually - without much compliance.  I hope to get compliant, and sweat a weight out this summer.

Interestingly I have had some moments when my mental focus, which can vary during the day from poor eating, seemed to be abnormally sharp and controled.  I got a lot of very concentrated work done - it seemed to take no effort at all and time appeared to slow down as I was going fast.

Well, great! Scared me there for a minute. Your words sound so familiar in this latest post. I usually keep track of my weight, but the other day I put on a skirt that usually fits, and the waist was very noticeably loose. I thought I had lost some more weight, but when I weighed I hadn't, which was all right with me because I love losing inches, especially in the right places!!

After taking about a week break from Trehalose, I'm taking it again in small doses, and that seems to be working for me.  The recommended dose is way too much, but it might be an individual thing.  I only take 1/2 tsp at a time with 1/2 tsp of ARA6.  It is great for workouts.  I make sure I have something on my stomach first.  Wait a little bit, then take the Trehalose, wait a little while longer, then go for a light workout.  That's in the morning.  Then after lunch, I take it after my meal, then head back to work and I'm able to better endure staying awake at my desk for the afternoon at my lovely job.  All in all, it is great stuff.  But, beware, it is very speedy, at least for me.  A little of that stuff, plus some Cortigard and Tranquility Base, and I'm feeling pretty good.

It is funny, but I have meant to add my veggie drinks to soups sometimes, but they just never get past a glass!! I just love that fresh, sparkling taste!! I haven't thought about it before, but people with a shortage of time could add a tad of TC and freeze a batch in separate small containers. This would work when we have too much on hand to use up quickly enough - veggies, that is. (smile)

I am now on my third and have more .. I am now taking the near full 2 teaspoons in the morning. poor it directly into the mouth and let it melt.. then I add some pure turmeric at the last moment and then swallow with 3 ox.. Grapefruit juice..

The reason for more TC in the morning, just because ... it makes me gassy again, but soon that will go away again.. showers me that I need more cleaning done...

The turmeric and soon some cayenne pepper to 'deactivate' the stomach to brain nerve impulses that ask for food-- to stop me from being hungry.. I am doing this as a self test.  I am experimenting on on idea others have expressed ... I will report.. BY the way:   PLEASE  no one do what I do.. the pepper could chock someone who is not careful..  and one could be allergic as well or the stomach might get burned.. I might get some plain capsules and fill them myself.. but just for a little - I don't mind the spicy burning down my throat.  

Does anyone know about peppery foods... are they good or bad? for O's as along as its compliant Beneficials?

Don't worry!  :o :o :o I won't be trying the pepper - a big old Avoid for me! I do love experimenting with this stuff though! I bet you are detoxing everything under the sun!!

No answer specifically, but the more we heal the body, the more it can release overloads or keep more of what we need.. Focusing on one item is basically counter productive.. the body always needs to balance one item against the other.. so if one is being dealt with - the other has to work harder..

Detoxing mentally is most important -at the same time- one detoxes from substances, or the brain hangs on to its faulty information and control impulses.   WHY copper?

Spring  (aka Madame Ambassador for TC)

It's really great that you are introducing Trehalose Complex to people who can benefit from using it.
The benefits of using Trehalose Complex on a regular basis seem far and wide to help overall health.

I just received my order containing another container of Trehalose Complex and more ARA6.

So what do you all think?

How will I know if I react 'badly' to the Trehalose if it wasn't pure enough?
I generally get away with 'sins' so I am not a good 'control' person  :-/


The sample I received in the post is made from corn...so anyone have an answer for me on the above question?

Thanks!

I am up since 11 this eventing - it is #AM now.. I have a headache again and am at wits end .. again......  

I started the day feeling actually HAPPY with some good news.. a feeling I do not always have, I am certain that it comes with TC.. No doubt it affects me with mood lifting.. !

I expected to feel ok today, I had a wonderful day doing all I wanted and had several pieces of good news..  I was out with friends swimming having dinner doing good things.. compliant.. had a wonderful day .. took the tablespoon of TC and a Magnesium 'pill' and in the morning also 2 others as soon as the head ache started tonight at 10 tonight.  There was no stress, the day was better then ever and no worry over nothing.  So why this headache and why will it not go away.. My neck muscles feel like ropes, thick heavy ropes..

At 2 am I got up and went to the all night store to buy the Milk of Magnesia in the believe that maybe it would work to clear the headache away.. It is 3am and it did not help, now I took one more spoon of TC and sitting here with the headache wondering what else I could try.. cold did nothing, heat seldom does anything, ....

...so JUST now 3.15  I am trying Capzasin  cream a cream for arthritis I never tried before.. from my medicine cabinet and put it all around the neck.. It is Hot feeling, I have no idea what is in it, but I assume it is a pepper derivative.. from its name?  

I  am really unhappy about this headpain.. and yet .....even now: I am feeling happy.. I had a great day.. I think the increase in TC helps with that.. I am up to one table spoon in the morning.. with grapefruit juice.

Maybe this cream and burning heat sensation around my neck might break the spell.. I am refusing to take a pain killer, as it only gives me a 24 hour reprieve and then rebounds in pain again.. been there done that..

I will have to re-read the early posts here reg my headaches .. but right now my eye sight is to poor to do so..

Spring: The thread will not go away, even if it disappears for a while, someone will make a post or search for TC and then find it, so no worry.. just keep a copy of the thread URL and email it to your self and then you can always access it again.. That is what I do..with good stuff..


P/S it is nearly 4am, the neck muscles are slowley letting go.The ropes are getting thinner. :o
I have no idea why the headaches lasts 5-6 hours.. maybe I will get some sleep soon.. thanks for letting me be here.. it helps..

I have to chime in real quick.  Just ordered my 2nd container of TC, after not having taken it for several months.  I'd been super stressed these last few weeks, working on starting a corporation (which I found is no walk in the park), and not being able to focus on the monumental tasks ahead.  Studying securities laws, drafting technical documents on subjects I'd never heard of before... yikes.

Within the same day of taking TC, I swear a veil was lifted from my mind and body, and suddenly the stress didn't affect me like it had.  Was able to write an entire PPM (an 8 hour task), and get everything else done I needed to.  Plus I just feel happier & lighter.

This stuff is magic!

Goldie, I do hope you are feeling better by now. That headache sounds like a real monster! I am a great believer in layering on the ointments and creams for shoulder tension.  Have you tried the Bach Remedy for tension? This Aspen that I am playing around with right now is wonderful! I even put some on my skin at the neck area and it worked. Albeit, I only used a minute amount of it - not even a drop! I have already recommended it to two people who need it worse than I do. No doubt, there are other Bach Remedies that might even address your problem more specifically. I am glad that Victoria and others have spread the word about these products.

About the thread, I was partly joking about it "disappearing!" But sometimes when people are not feeling well, it is bothersome to try to find things, especially if they don't even know they exist!! (smile)

I would be game to at least try it. Corn irritated my stomach and esophagus like crazy, but I didn't seem to have any other obvious problems with it. But it seems this trehalose is less apt to be the demon that plain old corn would be for most of us. Let us know how you come out with it if you decide to take the plunge!

Goldie, I wonder if something like Pilates might help- I don't know if you have mentioned things like that in an earlier post...

My sister-in-law, a very active triathlete ended up with an inflamed shoulder because of bad technique when swimming! She's doing pilates now to retrain all her muscles and to get them 'firing' properly!
Seems like posture has a bigger effect on health than certainly I ever thought...and since you had such a good active day I wonder if exactly THAT had to do with your headache  :-/

I love turmeric/curcumin, and I think TC "likes" it, too, just so long as I don't take it anywhere near the time I eat turmeric. Turmeric helps us guard against a lot of "evils!" I am about turmeric like Dennis the Menace was about catsup. A long time ago he said he could get anything down as long as it had enough catsup on it!!  :D

Well, the smoking couple I mentioned earlier have August 1 as the day they will start on a healthier lifestyle! Their pantry will be fortified with two containers of Trehalose, ARA6 and the other vitamins they already take, and two whole boxes of Cherry Unibars! Plus various other healthy, non-sweetened snacks such as nuts, etc.. Send a good thought their way, and we will see how successful they are this time!! Got my fingers crossed! (sunny) Of course, it goes without saying that they will be eating especially well during this undertaking!

yvonneb..... Your reply about exercise.. Yes I tried Pilate's ..  thanks..


Sorry to say : my headaches come from stress -- self induced-- after aggravation by others.. I seem not to be able to let go when I am upset.. I had such a day - early in the morning someone upset me.. then by night time I was aware that I am still aggravated, and tried to just relax and go to sleep, a few hours later I woke up getting a headache.. I took Milk of Magnesia.. Yak its just awful.. but I really seem to be able not to take a pain killer.  When taking IT, the headaches go away after about on hour and don't get as bad..  

I came here and found a funny post.. laughing helps.. Lucky for me.. I feel better the next day after arguments.. my body heals the emotions over-night or while sleeping -  I wake up refreshed emotionally.. (opening my life up to new hurts :X )  

Yet OK : here is my reason for posting.. so... I had this headache every day!!! for years.. with just about 4-5 days off every month..  
WHY DID trehalose complex work to reduce that number to only when I am stressed/aggravated?            

What might it have done to my body nearly from the beginning? to make me notice fewer headaches almost within 2 weeks of taking it?

(... which then allowed me to figure out that it was caused by self induced stress resulting in neck tension.. which then made me test if magnesium would help and it does in that liquid way only ..mag pills seemingly don't do it..  )

WHAT might TC have done for my body?  Any guesses?

It seems people have their favorite way to take Trehalose Complex.  Alot of people take it with grapefruit juice (I know it has some citrus in it anyway), some take it with a little water etc.

For the last week I was adding it along with my ARA6 mixed in almond milk.  Today I decided to put it in a little water with some drops of lemon essential oil  I always have on hand.  

I have to say that just the TC alone with water gave me a "badda bing feeling" almost immediately whereas I didn't really experience that mixed in with ARA6.  

Don't know why I used that particular phrasing; but ,whatever, it was a good, energetic start to the day.

Well, I wonder how the rest of the Trehalose Complex folks are doing these days? For myself, I am doing great! And part of that is the fact that I am seeing other people doing great on it too!! Just lately three more people have gotten, or are getting on, the bandwagon that I know personally. A couple with lots of health issues that they have been dealing with for years are incredibly excited about their amazing results with TC!! I won't go into details because they are likely reading this forum!! I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't eventually visit the clinic  to get even more help with supplements, SWAMI, etc.. They don't live so very far away. Another person is the son of long-time friends who has more allergy problems than anyone I know. Goes around in a miserable fog like a lot of other people. Anyway, we will see how he comes out!! Will begin his journey in a few days!(smile)

So, let us know how you are doing, folks! My other supplements are still creating a real WOW! factor too! I'm pulling out some I haven't taken in a while just to see how they perform in this new environment!! They react like nothing I've ever seen before in my life! (sunny)

I have been moving in my dreams lately, doing NEW things in my dreams..

During the day I feel so much more at ease when taking TC, it gives me that separation between whatever and happy thinking.. so nice.  
When I don't take it I feel it, I get 'light' blue, more fearful, more self worried.  With TC a little while later, I am self assured and ready to roam..  even after all these 5 month, it is working fine. Just talking it - is a journey.. it is to be remembered. ;D to take it.

I think TC does work better with the right supplements. When Dr. D. mentioned "doing the work" he certainly wasn't kidding! Good health requires diligence and continuing our education in how to take better care of ourselves. And, it goes without saying, the payoff is priceless! (sunny)

Wow! I finally got plain old ARA to take with my Trehalose Complex this morning and took the first "dose" with TC about an hour ago. I had been taking the ARA Plus caps away from TC all along, but taking the powder and TC together was/is a trip and a half! The TC worked much quicker with the plain ARA! --Ha! That is certainly a misnomer. ARA is everything but plain!

If there is anyone left on the D'Adamo Planet besides me who hasn't tried ARA powder before with their Trehalose Complex, I advise you to give it a try ASAP!! It is wonderful!! I started off with 1/4 teaspoon and a rounded 1/2 teaspoon of TC. WOW!! (sunny) To the NTH!!

Thanks, Joy! I can't tolerate grapefruit or lemon for now, so I take TC right off a spoon, and took the ARA 6 and TC the same way before lunch today. Followed with a little water. No doubt, the juice would make it work better, but I simply can't tolerate it.

About b'fast. At present, I have milled chia, milled flax, and hemp seed (total - 1/2 cup) on raspberries with a little lecithin and rice milk. I have my AM supplements with a little applesauce to get them down. That is about all I can stand at one time in the morning! So I can certainly understand your dilemma!! (smile)

Nearly 5 months on Trehalose Complex. This is a very exciting experience in my life. I still won't take more than 1/2 a teaspoon in the morning, or I would feel bizzare. I can testify that a major gear has been added to my life: I panic less. Can use my brain more freely. Therefore I am more calm about eating and preparing my food, and enjoy it more. Smaller quantities satisfy me. This is very good for losing the extra 2.5 kgs I carry.  Don't get me wrong, I still eat large portions. For example, Swami instructs me the daily portion of nut butter to be 2 tablespoons. Sometimes I easily take 3 or 4, or even 5 tabkespoons a day - not all of them at once. But I relate to quantities more obectively - I feel they do not enslave me anymore. I regard them more as partners: "Me Gatherer You Quantities".

I am feeling totally wonderful compared to this time last year! (hugegrin) I have lost MORE weight in the last week or so and don't have time to go into all the other benefits I'm getting from taking TC and ARA6! Drea, I'm sorry you haven't gotten the WOW factor. ARA Plus shouldn't be taken with it. ARA6 is TC's friend! Remember - NO quercetin within 30-45 minutes of taking TC! No green tea, either, within that time frame. We're all different so it may take longer or even a shorter time frame for you, but it didn't take me long to figure out what worked best for me. I take both first thing in the morning straight from a spoon and then drink some water. I take it a while before lunch the same way. I would add lemon to my water if I could tolerate it. Maybe someday I will be able to, but I can't now.

There is no telling how many people I have gotten started taking these two, and they ALL were very excited about their immediate results! Maybe you're already in such good shape that it will take longer for you to notice a change. That would be my guess anyway. Another perk I'm enjoying is getting into more of my clothes!! (smile)

I take 1 tsp Trehalose Complex every morning with 1/4 tsp. ARA6 (I put more ARA6 into my smoothie 1/2 hour later) and a dash (1 Tb or so) of pineapple juice, mixed into about 4 oz of water.  All on an empty stomach.

I take 1 tsp Trehalose Complex every morning with 1/4 tsp. ARA6 (I put more ARA6 into my smoothie 1/2 hour later) and a dash (1 Tb or so) of pineapple juice, mixed into about 4 oz of water.  All on an empty stomach.


This was the effect I was expecting to see (mental clarity), so I completely missed the weight-loss effect!

I've been taking 1 tsp of TC with 1 tsp of ARA 6 in lemon/sea salt water each morning for three weeks. I skipped Sat-Mon, just because I was tired of taking all my supps, but will jump back on the wagon!

Thanks for pointing it all out to me. 8)

Who did you feel like before TC?  ;) LOL

Per this discussion, I'm back to taking my dosage...I'll finish the jar and go from there.

Last night I was craving something sweet (but not as sweet as agave and don't have anything else) to put on my peanut butter on rye bread, so added a tsp of TC on top of the pb, and it hit the sweet spot perfectly!! More weight lost. So, if it's the TC that's helping, I'm thrilled.

In my younger body, I was full of vitality, slim and had a very sharp mind.  After decades of wrong eating, birthing a couple of babies and going through a major illness 13 years ago, I felt like I was running on empty.  Fatigue was more familiar than energy.  And I felt like my brain was in a fog.  I couldn't remember names of people that I even saw regularly.  My creativity was at a low ebb.  All this was even while my physical health has been improving steadily and successfully.  My weight has returned to what I consider my ideal, and most physical complaints are a thing of the past.

That fatigue and brain fog were persistent.  Trehalose is the first thing that has just blown them right out.

Victoria,

Your testimony would be in the top five for Trehalose.  A journey of the utmost.  And there it is - Trehalose, created by Dr. D years ago and benefiting all of us who heed the call.

I continue to take Trehalose with ARA6 every day.  I'm taking other supplements and still dealing with a skin condition mostly on my left calf.  Sometimes it's a challenge to identify what is helping.

Perhaps the Trehalose has gives me that "search" motivation because I'm making alot of progress in dealing with the situation.  

Right now a "focused mind" is one of the greatest gifts to possess.

UPDATE:   I was so hoping that I am able to report that my headaches are gone.. but so far all I can do is make them go away without pills within one hour of onset with all things I am trying.. any form of Magnesium and whatever else I have tried.. to no avail..... I still get them again and again.. Today is a day/night of it in which I got 4 different headaches spread over the last 24 hours ..

But still I credit Trehalose Complex for at least allowing me to 'separate' the headache from its cause.. the muscle tension in my neck - as I would say for no darn reason - but clearly tense for whatever!!..  

so my search goes on..   ::)  I guess it could be worse.. the movies this night where fab..

hundreds of time!!


MY headaches are from stress muscle contracting of blood vessels / compressing my neck functions.. ;; and then  
not CONVERTING bloood into downward Lymph fluid fast enough..

I am so sensitive to stress..

I got up at 8 am today and was fine after finally sleeping for 3 hours...

then I called a fried to ask him to help with something and he is willing by Saturday or Sunday.. all is well but..... I could feel tension rising in my NECK within seconds of not GETTING 100% of what I wanted..   HOW AWFUL stupid is that!  It is nothing.. but my body REACTS!!!!!!

SO NOW a few minutes after I can feel all my upper back muscles contracting for telling of getting ready to cause me another headache..  I am going to use the Magnesium Gel and take 2 Ligaplex ll with Manganese!!! this will be helpful.. but IT IS SOOOOOOOOOOO aggravating.. I feel so powerless over MY OWN BODY..


The only good thing is that I finally figure this out!!!!!! it is not a brain tumor! IT is my nerve fibers!!!

Thanks for the response..

Goldie, do you take (or have you tried) Rhodiola & Ashwagandha?

I am too very very sensitive to stress. A supp I (only) sometimes take is Clary Sage Oil capsules. When I take them with supper, my sleep is ten fold relaxed. So in my experience it works as anti stress. It is very expensive, but I think it pays.

Goldie, I can't remember whether you have mentioned it or not but have you tried some of the Bach Remedies? I find Aspen to be wonderful for tension if I put about 8-16 drops in an 8-16 ounce bottle of water and drink it during the day. The last month has been very hectic for me, and Aspen along with TC/ARA6 has been a lifesaver! My energy has been incredible!! I do better with Aspen than I do with the Stress Remedy or Larch (which seems a little strong for me right now.) It is unbelievable how much better I am handling stessful situations!!! (hugegrin)

Joy, I wonder if Bach Rescue Cream would work for you on your leg. I had a small patch on my face that was scaly/flaky, and nothing I used would get rid of it permanently. I tried Bach Rescue Cream and, after using it only twice, the place healed very nicely! I forgot to put some of my powdered TC in the cream, but if any other skin problem developes, I will definitely add the TC to it.

Spring,

I just went to the dermatologist for the second time today.  I was put on antiboitics to address a bacterial infection and will continue them for another week.  He also recommended using Dial soap (My immediate reaction was "Dial soap, isn't that drying and plus in the natural world of medicine you're not supposed to use soap (my mind was on overdrive and I couldn't stop spouting these things) I was all about essential oils and natural anitibiotics, etc. etc.

Sometimes, nothing but an anitbiotic will work.  And this one is working.  I have another week to go but I'm making progress when nothing else would work.

Here comes the TC/ARA6 part.  Normally I drag myself around for the length of time I have to take an antibiotic.  Well, I continued to take my TC/ARA6 combo every single day no matter what and I can say that my energy level and mental focus have supported me totally.  

I am so thankful I read your original post.  I really had no idea how it would help me but after all this time it keeps helping.

I'll keep in mind your suggestion in the future if I have another type of skin situation.

Glad to hear your energy is up!

Joy

This is a surprise! Livestrong says it got its information about quercetin from
http://www.worldofmolecules.com/antioxidants/quercetin.htm

But I don't see it listed in this list from there and neither is green tea! Of course, they don't say this is a complete list. And I can't seem to find a quantity from which they are deriving these numbers. Apples are sky high but I have never seen that anywhere else. So I have lots of questions about these numbers.....  ??)  :-/
"Occurrence
Foods rich in quercetin include capers (1800mg/kg)[4], lovage (1700mg/kg), apples (440mg/kg), tea (Camellia sinensis), onions (higher concentrations of quercetin occur in the outermost rings[5]), red grapes, citrus fruits, broccoli and other leafy green vegetables, cherries, and a number of berries including raspberry, bog whortleberry (158 mg/kg, fresh weight), lingonberry (cultivated 74mg/kg, wild 146 mg/kg), cranberry (cultivated 83 mg/kg, wild 121 mg/kg), chokeberry (89 mg/kg), sweet rowan (85 mg/kg), rowanberry (63 mg/kg), sea buckthorn berry (62 mg/kg), crowberry (cultivated 53mg/kg, wild 56 mg/kg),[6] and the fruit of the prickly pear cactus. A recent study found that organically grown tomatoes had 79% more quercetin than "conventionally grown"."[7]

Spring, thank you!

This is the site I usually use:

http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/Data/Flav/flav.pdf

The table starts at page 10, and it doesn't list chamomile. It lists green tea though.

The sources I found which mention quercetin contents of chamomile are:

http://www.raysahelian.com/chamomile.html

http://www.answers.com/topic/uses-of-benzoin

http://foodforbreastcancer.com/foods/chamomile

These sources don't give concentration data. I found them when I thought of having chamomile tea one morning, and checked.

What I do is taking warm water + lemon juice + TC first thing in the morning, then wait one hour for the mushroom extracts (+ green tea), and then wait another 1/2 an hour for breakfast. I don't exercise in the mornings, but being an early riser this is still very reasonable. There's lot of other work to be done at this 1 hour and a half.

This has been mismanagement and a big waste of time/energy. Who ever said I have to take the TC first thing in the morning?.... of course I don't.  So I switched the schedule, I take green tea and mushroom extracts earlier, after 1/2 an hour can have my breakfast and strengthen and free my mind (smarty)(pray), and only THEN I continue and calculate (think) (whistle) the time needed, if needed, before trehalose ribose.

What better example to how TC improves clarity of mind.

NO snapping at the drop of a pin.. But at least remembering for a few seconds.. Yes I am doing so.. feel quite proud of ME...  ;D

I have stopped taking TC for some time now.. have no idea why.. I always do that.. after some time I get tired.. AHHH I remember why.. grapefruit is acting up on me.. so I need to do lemon..

The other day I drank two glasses!!! of lemon with SUGAR.. I could have done TC IN PLACE OF sugar..


has anyone bought just Trehalose as sugar??

I never use sugar except in foods.. BUT now that I think of it I will do more lemonade.. IMMMMMGAINE if I was to drink water??? with TC and lemon..  8)

I might even get rid of accumulated - holding on to - water retention.. because the body is thirsty..

Ok  time to get serious..

I agree 100% Yaeli! Sometimes breaking out of a mold is my favorite thing to do at the time!  And breaking out of worrying too much is one of them! ;D  Logistics get on my nerves big time. So I just down my TC first thing in the morning, and when it is time for breakfast, no worries about what might be clashing with what! At around 11:00 I down some more TC, and by the time lunch is ready, I don't have to worry about any of that then, either.

I get awful, searing pain from eating grapefruit. Only that and only in my upper stomach toward my esophagus. Lemon is the same way. The more of it I eat, the worse it gets. I can eat clementines all day every day and not have the slightest twinge of pain. In fact, I just had three this afternoon. The first this year.

Plain trehalose, yes! I have some. I bought it intending to bake with it, but was not impressed with the results. I bake mostly with agave.

So I take a teaspoon of Trehalose in the AM in my grapefruit juice, twice per day if I remember. It does lighten my mood. It may not be as effective as Dr.D's TC, but I have a lot of it to use up before I buy more.

(Beside the point in this thread, but still) This is to me such an amazing experience with the BT diet/DPN! MOST amazing. I actually grew up almost inside our orange grove. My late father grew several kinds of citrus - as well as other deciduous and sub-tropical fruit trees - and we were very blessed. In my childhood and youth I spent hours on end squeezing (manually) liters of orange juice.

I am so happy now, that (a) I can have lemon/lime/red grapefruit and benefit from them, (b) someone else dear to me can enjoy Clementines - and benefit! Yummi! (sunny)

I distinctly remember the first time I drank a glass of orange juice from ripe oranges that had just been picked off the tree! I was probably around six. It was entirely different from all the orange juice I had ever tasted in my life!! Delicious!! Wish I could still drink it.... I'm so happy to be able to eat these clementines, though. And I would be even happier if I could, also, eat grapefruit and lemons which are supposed to be diamonds for me. Especially, because they are good to eat with TC. I think the damage to my upper stomach and esophagus is probably something I will have to deal with the rest of my life.

I take most of my morning supps in a harmonia/grapefruit juice mixture, along with my coffee, then an hour later, I like a bit of nut butter with TC (but there is no room for the ARA 6 on the bread :-/).

Just down the ARA 6 straight from a spoon. I like it that way! Dr. D. recommended taking them at the ame time. When I get up in the morning the first thing I do is take my TC and ARA6 with some water because I am not tolerating lemon or grapefruit for now. I take both directly out of a spoon. When I first started taking it I had a lot of ARA Plus on hand so I took the TC first thing in the AM and the ARA Plus after lunch. I can't say that I can tell a drastic difference in taking it that way, but there definitely is some difference.

I think I damaged me also.. more so now that I still have extra pounds on my upper belly (again)  

Eating Beneficials is my cure, ... grapefruit is on issue if late.  so much so I forgot about taking TC for some monthes... SOOOORYY NAP and Spring@!  

BUT when I took it my tongue had cleared up nicely.. what I never spoke of was that my tongue also was damaged to about 1 inch in on one side and 3/4 on the other and deep cuts in the front. - vilies all gone. (my dental implants and bridge work is the unspeakable reason) ............................

Today I took the container and pout it in the center of my counter to remember again!! to take it.  for the following reasons!!!

A)  TC made me feel light hearted .. as is reflective even in my postings here...  AND THE EFFECTS have not WEANED.. I still FEEL light hearted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

B) my tongue while a little more white (again) HAS HEALED ON EITHER SIDE!  It looks normal now after about 12 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!  

The front deep cuts are still there, but I need to address then differently, yet there is hope!!!!  

I am starting to take TC AGAIN..    I just added a spoon to my decaf and it actually made it taste better..

Never mind ... sooorrry - I again drink decaf.. if only I could find a drink I like better... sorry All BTD'rs.. I am sooo weak...  

What I am looking forward to with the TC is to feel lighter = a new boost = to get on with starting over, to drop weight again.. TC will help in so many ways.. !!!!

She's been using it in tea and coffee.

Are they totally cancelling each other out, is she getting a little benefit, or is she making things worse?

She won't give up either tea or coffee and she uses way too much sugar.  I was hoping the TC would lighten the sugar load.  Whatever I suggest has to be easy to manage or she won't do it.

So it's the other things in TC -- the d-ribose and citrus pectin -- that interact with quercetin?

I have all three components.  She was ripping through it so fast I had to find a cheaper option.

Trehalose stimulates autophagy.  It is my understanding that quercitin affects the autophagy in a manner that cancels at least some of the effect of the Trehalose.  It has been too long since I read or heard that information to remember exactly - and I don't have the time right now to pursue a better answer for you.

It was written about in N~1 on here..  By Dr. D.. but on line there is tons of writing..

What I am NOT CLEAR about.. is which Plain Trehalose is best for O's for instance.. like Trehalose from Mushrooms or from corn or whatever?  Does that matter..?  IS PLAIN Trehalose just a sugar replacement?  or is Trehalose Complex the stuff that makes it deal with the auto phage.. meaning eating up debree in our brain and body..?  I guess the only way I get my answers is to try it..


As for reading / learning .. I think I gave you a link to N~1 before.. look for EAT ME and find this

Autophagy (‘self-eating’) is a catabolic (breakdown) process used by cells to degrade and remove some of their internal components deemed to be unnecessary or undesirable. Like our window company, cells are little factories of a sort, and as such they function under many of the same dynamic considerations: Things accumulate; byproducts are produced that can’t do anything, etc.

It can cause some side-effects when you start taking it.  I can't take it at the indicated dosage, but I do take some regularly.

Ha! Since Trehalose can defeat 70 per cent of odors, I wonder if spraying a 2% solution in a garbage can would make it smell better.  ;D  I'm experimenting as I write. I have the solution mixed together, one-fourth cup water/one-fourth teaspoon Trehalose Complex. I might even try this for a deodorant eventually. Spraying it on the skin during the dry, harsh winter cold would probably work wonders as a moisturizer. Dr. D.'s latest wonder got me started on this train of thought after I delved more into what is written there about Trehalose. I may have to boil the stuff to get it to melt. I should have used some that I had reduced to the consistency of powdered sugar. Oh, they are even into putting this stuff in eye drops for dry eyes! Imagine that! But it certainly makes sense.

Another thing I'm interested in is the astonishing results people are getting with using plain Trehalose to get rid of cataracts. They don't recommend quercetin for cataracts, but plain old Trehalose works!  Dear me. I see I am back on my train again.... I will have to order some of this plain old Trehalose and start "preaching" to all my favorite older people who have cataracts! And maybe I will  FINALLY get to try it on some of my flowers too. Wooo Hooo!

Dosage for TC is a personal finding.  When I first got it I took the recommended one level teaspoon and it was too much.

Now I take about a half a teaspoon (sometimes less) along with the ARA6 and it works very well.
If I forget to take it for a day I feel the difference.  I feel as if something is missing.

I take it usually right after breakfast while I'm doing something at the computer.

It really is quite wonderful and a great addition to my supplements on a daily basis.

Please give it another try.

I wouldn't give up on it yet. You didn't say how much you were taking. Maybe you could try a lower dosage. Are you taking ARA6 with it? That will give you tons of energy. If you don't want to invest in the ARA6, you could try the ARA Plus just don't take it at the same time as the Trehalose because of the quercetin in it. Hope you can make it work for you! (smile)

SPRING this is for you...

I have so many supplements in my closets that it is embarrassing.  I take them for a while and if they do not improve my life I stop taking them.. The money I 'throw' out is sad..

One of three items I do take is Trehalose Complex.  I DO TYPE the word complex EVERY TIME when I mean it and not the PLAIN part of it..

I think we do readers a disservice when we only say Trehalose... Dr D has not suggested that plain trehalose will be as good as the combo of the Complex.. Maybe others have written about it, but so far we have NOT had anyone here who seemed to have BOUGHT PLAIN trehalose and tried it for anything.  IF they had I have not seen the postings...... (maybe one with making cookies who gave up).  Did anyone buy some and is not using it, I might buy it off you.. )

I have had great results in using T Complex, it has cleared to gunk off on my tongue and early on it has made me less depressed, and in some way it has (cleared my head) to afford me a way of finding out that my headaches where self inflicted stress, that then triggers muscle tension and a headache, for which Magnesium Gel is my current solution.

I now take the TC in lemon water in the evening before going to sleep, It does better work when doing so, and I take it first thing in the morning with a spritz of lemon as well.  That way I am not mixing it with any thing like quercetin.  Doing so, I do not wake up parched, I seem to have less mucus in my throat, and I may sleep more soundly not waking up every 20 minutes from mucus shifting needing to shift from one nostril to the other.  

I do think that the experiment with PLAIN T is on important one.. for diabetics who use sugar in any form this would be the solution.   I WONDER IF 'I' as a chocolate (or avoid) eating person could MAKE some kind of SUBSTITUTE salad dressing, sweet HOT chocolate, or some dessert that could stand in for other avoids???

I WONDER if plain T has a flavor like mushrooms (I think TC has a small drift-maybe my IMMAGINATION I have a smell issue with mushrooms)        yet.. could it serve to satisfy the TASTE BUDS and still not trigger the diabetes reactions.. or the Corticosteroids that add weight to my belly???????????????????????????????

SPRING would you mind doing some research with me?  some experiment with plain T?????????

I like sweet salad dressing, or mayonnaise, or sugar on my salad, could I buy some Plain T and substitute the sweet component with it.. would hot cocoa be delish enough to be healthier than DEcaf?  

Spring you and I could we work together?  Like deciding which PLAIN T would be best to buy .. I am chicken to buy it alone ON THE INTERNET< I wish there was a reliable source...   

JUST IMAGINE if diabetics had a source of reliable sugary sweet substitute that is good for them IN PLACE of artificial sweeteners?  I think there could be a whole new MARKET.. NO wonder the Japanese developed this product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   

It might be as big a discovery as was Saccharin in it's time.. Man o man, packaged in small bags.... I wonder what money could be made.. ????????????????????????   Maybe the market could yet use one more sugar free sugar good for diabetics.  Imagine it being added to the Soda making machines currently sold all over?  ---------- wow.. or a new candy?   I am running wild with more ideas..

I need to eat more TC >> remember?????? early on it gave me courage***** after 2 weeks !!!!!!!!!!! It might just do it again.  (**** I started to take it again the last two weeks after 2 month off.) Asking what IF ?????  could be exiting. ::) ??) :o ;D

I appreciate all your responses. I did not throw away the bottle so I am going to try again.

It is T Complex from Dr D and taking 1/2 teaspoon with lemon juice in the morning. I was not taking ARA6. I did not know what that is so I have asked customer service when I was ordering T Complex and did not think it was necessary.

I will try with less amount varying morning or evening. Thank you.

Some people find the evening less desirable as many get active from it.. some like to stop taking it after lets say PM..

I seem to do ok with it late just before going to sleep.. and then any time I wake up for the first time.. also with lemon juice..

Ha, Maybe when I took it with Grapefruit early in the year.. I felt energized??? !! with lemon I do not.. that sounds quire..  ??)

Somewhere way back in this thread (I'm not going to read back through all 36 pages) someone posed a list of foods containing quercetin and "citrus fruits" was on that list.

When I Google it, I come up with this list:
Quoted Text
Many plants, especially fruits, contain abundant amounts of quercetin. It is found in oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit, tangerines, apples, green tea, black tea, red wine, buckwheat and onions. Lesser amounts are found in leafy green vegetables, olive oil, blackberries, dark cherries, bilberries, blueberries, beans, cauliflower and cabbage.
Grapefruit and lemon are both on that list, and Dr D says it's OK to combine grapefruit, but perhaps lemon has more quercetin than grapefruit and you aren't getting as much benefit when using lemon juice.

I'd still like to know why grapefruit is OK when the other quercetin-rich foods aren't....

BHealthy, I did try to find the list on the thread, but fell short of finding it. I have it printed here somewhere if I can just find it! The majority of the foods on your list don't have enough quercetin to make a difference. Green tea is one of the worst offenders and there are one or two others. I simply get up in the AM and take it first thing. Wait about forty minutes and eat or drink whatever I want except green tea. Take it again about 11:30 and by lunchtime I'm not worrying about what to eat or not to eat. Just a caution that lists on the Internet are not necessarily accurate. What one person may call "abundant" might not be what Dr. D. considers "abundant!"

Okay I found the list! In 100 grams, the following have the noted amount of quercetin: Green tea leaves, dried 255.55 mg.; Black tea leaves, dried, 204.66 mg.; Lovage leaves, 170 mg.. The amounts in other foods, etc., goes off a cliff after these. Dill weed has about 55 mg. in 100 grams -- then it really drops off after that. So just stay away from Green and black teas and Lovage leaves (whatever that is!) and you will be just fine!

After a period of 7 months taking 1/2 a teaspoon TC every morning, I thought yesterday that it's high time that I try to increase the quantity, and added 1/4 teaspoon (I have this plastic set of 5 sizes). It worked! I felt very very good and optimistic. So, as from yesterday, I'm on 3/4 level teaspoon TC. In the morning. Looking forward  :)

Somehow I 'suspect' that "quercetin" in Dr. D's contraindications means quercetin supplement, e.g. a 500 mg capsule, and not all the foods that contain quercetin. The foods which have been specifically contraindicated are green tea, coffee, and turmeric, and, by moderators in this thread, also cranberries. What do you think?

To get the best benefit for my health I will always consider the Complex as the most beneficial. As for the other uses, who knows? I already know one thing - don't expect the Complex to help at least the plant that I tried it on. It died. But I will try plain Trehalose on another one when I get it. I am using the mix that I simply made of water and TC on my skin and it is incredibile. Works much better than putting the TC on the face without dissolving it first. It takes a while for it to dissolve though.

If you read the reviews on Amazon for Corvalen Ribose, it's being used to treat fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.  It's supposed to give you energy and one person said it made her sleep better.  The brand that I bought, Vitacost, described it thus:
Quoted Text
serves as a building block for adenosine triphosphate (ATP)the body's basic energy source.* D-ribose is also the carbohydrate backbone of genetic material DNA and RNA.*How does D-ribose support health?Supports healthy cellular energy at the level of ATP.*Promotes recovery after sports stresses.*Supports a healthy cardiovascular system.*Contributes to the function of mitochondria.
It's the component that makes TC smell so good.

The description for Thorne Research Fractionated Citrus Pectin (which is not processed using acetone, ethyl alcohol, or ether) reads:
Quoted Text
fractionated pectin bind to lectins on cell membranes, preventing attachment of unwanted cells.
It's also used to detox heavy metals.  One brand cautioned against using more than the recommended dose of 4-6 teaspoons as it can cause constipation. Pectasol-C brand, made by http://blog.econugenics.com/2011/10/07/new-research-shows-multiple-benefits-of-pectasol-c/, says that it is
Quoted Text
the only form of Modified Citrus Pectin clinically proven and patented for promoting cellular health. Numerous peer-reviewed studies have been published demonstrating PectaSol-C’s powerful ability to bind to excess Galectin -3 molecules in the body and block their harmful effects.
However, this brand does not state whether they use acetone, ethyl alcohol, or ether in processing.  Modified Citrus Pectic is being used to cure cancer.  This was the most expensive component of the three.

Since chlorella is not an option for me, I may use MCP instead to detox the mercury in the tuna I have for lunch.  MCP should be taken away from food.

This review for pure Trehalose has some suggestions on how to use it for cooking: http://www.amazon.com/100%25-Pure-Trehalose-grams-Pwdr/dp/B001TEKR7W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1356014532&sr=8-1&keywords=trehalose

Of course, she is right about the "capsules." That is why we don't want to take ARA Plus at the same time as we take TC.  ;D

BHealthy, we have most of the stuff (maybe all) from Amazon already posted on this thread somewhere, and from anywhere else there is anything mentioned about Trehalose and our own Dr. D.'s TC. People have learned how to do amazing research over the years, and we all benefit from it. This board is inhabited with people who can practically read Dr. D's mind from personal experience with him and his staff, and by parsing his and their words for years, etc.,  so I give weight to what they have to say about what he might think. There is no place on the web that is anywhere close to the benefit we get from our collective research, experience and willingness to share anything that might help another person. I give it a great big (sunny)!!

I love the 'connection to the heart ENERGY before and after on 'episode' of oxygen deprivation..   TC is going to be saving my Heart Health, before, during and after.. !   I have low oxygen conversion on a regular basis, when I do a reading it can go as low as 87 more often 89 or 91.. pulse is always high..

They talk of 'strong' pulse, I do not have that but some of the clients I have haver very strong (not rapid-) pulse.. NOW I am wondering if that is on indication of something???  I will read all the links more deliberately and find out more.    

THANKS all who keep coming back to report, support, and research..

I have something to report about Trehalose Complex that is amazing - again! I put a pound of almond meal/flour in my freezer back in the spring and forgot about it. The thing I remembered when I found it is that I had put a half teaspoon of TC in it and stirred it well before freezing it. I couldn't wait to taste it to see if it had that same old tastelessness that is the bane of any ground nuts that have been frozen for several months, like ten this time - let alone ground to the consistency of flour. I must say I've thrown out a lot of flours of all kinds because of that same old taste. Well, this lovely almond meal/flour had not lost the slightest bit of its wonderful taste, and it smells exactly like the fresh bag I just bought that is delicious!! From now on TC will go into any and all flours whatever they are made from, and I can stop throwing this stuff out!

So, the next thing I'm going to try this on is the dreaded AMARANTH!!! I have some seed that I am going to mill, add TC and freeze for about a month (everyone knows that amaranth smells and tastes awful to the nth by that time!!) So I will report again after this experiment!

Must try that with my flours. Amaranth scent....it smells like mould and because of this, I have decided to grind it on a need basis. Every time I opened the container I felt like throwing out because of the 'fragrance'.  :)

What do they soak up or formulate, etc. There is no doubt that Dr. Bach was inspired to go in the right direction to discover such a treasure that could be passed down from generation to generation. I'm glad he followed his passion to do all that work!

I'll chime in here about Bach products.  I've used at least ten of them at different times (not all at once of course) and they have helped tremendously.  When I was struggling with my last job (that was "uber boring" I was taking three different Bach Flower remedies throughout the day.  At night they were a godsend.

Today I was lucky.  All of you northerners in the cold don't hold it against me because I, too, am from a cold winter region - New York.   I have certainly experienced what the ambiance of winter weather is like.  

Everyone loves the first snowfall.  It really is magical and brings back great memories.  

Living in the tropics at this time of year is why people head towards Florida.  No doubt about it.
We have to balance out this great "spring time weather" with hot summers and forecasts of impending hurricanes.  

Yet, I will say again I was aware and took advantage of the opportunity.  I'm in the process of leasing a car and that is very intense.  The weather was a little overcast and just under 80 degrees at 3:30PM.  I was at the health food store and had a choice of going to another dealership and getting a quote (which one equates with trying to understand your telephone bill) and going to walk on the beach.  

I made an executive decision, as they say, and hurried home, changed clothes and headed for the beach.  I tried this on Sunday evening and was met with a full parking lot and traffic moving towards the beach as I was driving away.  

The walk this evening was idyllic.  No problem parking.  The air was cool yet the sun reflected on the water like diamonds.  I was heading for a l/2 walk but wound up three minutes under an hour.

I knew I had a pleasant time although I'm not quite sure I equalled the satisfied state of the seagulls that I observed.  As I was walking I noticed quite a few seagulls with a catch in their mouths.  I never noticed that before.  It was an "all you can eat buffet" for those seagulls who all looked quite healthy.

No matter how thoroughly you try to get the sand brushed off it will be there somehow.  But, it was very well worth it.

A spontaneous decision turned into a wonderful, relaxing walk.

An update: about 2 weeks ago I reached the recommended Trehalose Complex morning dose, 1 level teaspoon (I still take it only once daily). This took me a whole year. I began with half a teaspoon, later gradually added another quarter, until I recently dared to start taking the whole tsp. I am experiencing/witnessing significant small improvements in getting organized. Keeping simple basic order in daily minute chores is no more a problem to me - a tremendous relief. Daily chores flow and new small practical ideas keep popping in.

In short: Life feels sweeter than ever before.

Good for you.. and thanks for reminding us..

What is the item you think is the reason for your improvements? The T as a sugar, or the D-Ribose?  Why is it taking you so long to take a single spoonful?  what was happening before?

I still take a spoon full a year and a half later, not exactly every day but often enough.  I feel good and take that for granted now.. I did not always feel that way.. yes a nice change with TC.. I take it as a spoonful dry and wash it down..

I might try to focus more on taking it again twice a day to improve my speed by which I retain or recall things.  My recall has diminished - not that others could tell, but I can. Not alarming yet, but TC will not do harm, by cleaning up the trash (or deadspots) in my brain and body.

Search me, Goldie. I have no idea. I just rely on Dr. D and take it daily.  

Quoted from Goldie
Why is it taking you so long to take a single spoonful?
Yes it took me very long to reach - not a spoonful!!!! - a level teaspoonful. In the beginning I could take no more than half a teaspoon. When I tried to take more, I felt funny, as if I "took something", i.e., some drug. I was half dizzy half beside myself. It was unpleasant and a bit scary, and I wasn't ready to function like that. So I reduced the dose, until few months ago I gradually added another quarter of a teaspoon, etc.

Quoted from Goldie

I take it melted (stirred, actually) in a glass of warm lemon water (squeezed half a lemon), first thing in the morning.

Thanks Yaeli, and thanks for reminding me to take it with citrus ... I forgot, maybe I can make a big bottle of water add a little grapefruit juice and the TC - thus it would make the water feel as if flavored and sweetened?  I might get more water while getting the TC which would be good for me, to clear out gunk with 'water'.

The directions say: "Stir Trehalose powder into water with a squeeze of lemon or mix Trehalose with a beneficial juice. Mixing in a spoonful of ARA 6 - Pure Larch Powder will increase its effectiveness. Dr. D'Adamo recommends taking Trehalose an hour away from green tea, coffee, curcumin or quercetin." I wouldn't want to experiment beyond this.

This is very similar to the reaction I had when starting D-Ribose by itself.  My practitioner said that it was due to the cells previously lacking energy.  D-Ribose is a precursor to the energy needed by cells to function properly.  As such, if your body hasn't been getting/making enough, the cells may have stored waste that once energized, they dump into the bloodstream, overloading the filtering/elimination systems, etc...  As such, you have a sick/sluggish feeling possibly along with headaches from the toxicity...  Ramping up slowly, as you and I did, is the best way to overcome this condition.

I'm glad to see this thread still rolling.  I woke up this morning thinking about how either Trehalose or the Genoma skin care products (or a combo of both) are doing some very good things for the skin on my face.  

I am pretty fair skinned, with freckles, and I have had a lot of skin damage from sunburns throughout my life.  Also a run of chemotherapy 12 years ago didn't help.  I have had a number of little lesions, spots, raised areas, some pre-cancerous have been frozen off.  I've been using both those products I mentioned ever since they came out and first of all, several larger brown spots have grown noticeably lighter.  More exciting to me is that nearly all of the troublesome odds and ends on my skin have dried up and peeled off.  The health of my facial skin is 90% better than it was a year and a half ago.

True, but keep in mind that I follow my SWAMI program at the highest level of compliance, eating 90% of my food from the Superfood and Diamond categories and NO Toxins or Black Dots.  (no sugar or icecream (happy_gangsta) )

And I eat an absolute rainbow of colored fruits and vegetables.  (hehe)

Its the TC that is the addition that I am not surprised about.  It changed my depressions, that I am certain of. -- in fact it did not come back since the first few days of taking TC when It first came out about 18 month ago...  

I have great skin and never need anything.. unless I go against BTD suggestions.. like I tried coconut oil -- my skin dried out.. no good.

Quoted Text
The directions say: "Stir Trehalose powder into water with a squeeze of lemon or mix Trehalose with a beneficial juice. Mixing in a spoonful of ARA 6 - Pure Larch Powder will increase its effectiveness. Dr. D'Adamo recommends taking Trehalose an hour away from green tea, coffee, curcumin or quercetin." I wouldn't want to experiment beyond this.


Maybe I ought to add the ARA-6 to give me the greatest support against future Altzheimers.. (Diabetics are 50% prone to it.) I think my memory is getting very poor.  

What does ARA 6 do?

I started taking TC yesterday but didn't mix it with the ARA 6....This morning I did after spending a long time last night reading every post on this TC thread.  Very interesting results.

I would like to understand the purpose of taking TC with ARA 6.  I took 1/2 tsp of each today. Is that
a good place to start?

Is this a once a day thing?

TC is recommended twice daily, 1 level teaspoon each time.

As I wrote, a teaspoon was too much for me in the beginning. The second day I tried 3/4 and that was too much either, but 1/2 a tsp was super. Also, I haven't tried yet to take TC twice daily.

You'll try and see what is the dose that fits you most in the beginning.

What I learned is that trehalose has improved some people's moods, eyes, helped weight loss,
while others saw skin damage dry up and fall off...I found that seriously awesome and was impressed each time someone added a testimony.  Fascinating thread. Loved it.  Might go back
and read it again.

So today for me was day 3 and this morning for the second day, I used 1/2 tsp of TC plus 1/2 tsp ARA 6.
I have to say that although it's a disgusting rainy day and I generally have aches and pains in my
joints, I felt less achy.  Could that be a coincidence?  

After day #1.....that night I had a slight headache.  Next morning had an amazing BM and felt
better.  Not diarrhea but very good elimination.  No headaches after day #1.

I have plain trehalose as well as TC....I have only ingested TC so far..Last night after washing my face before going to sleep, I put some trehalose (the plain stuff) in my hand, added a little water and patted it all over my face.  Slept
with it.  Just an experiment to see if it does anything topically for my skin.  Don't have much sun
damage but wanting to see if I can double the skin clearing effects by using it topically too.

Curious if I'm taking enough.  Although I take melatonin before bed, and sleep soundly, I noticed
the past two nights I didn't feel as deeply asleep.  This is why I'm not feeling ready to add a second dose.  I'm thinking if it's energizing, last thing I want to do is feel too wired when I'm
supposed to be sleeping.

Great thread.....let's keep it going...I kind of wish everyone who hasn't tried it would give it a chance.  I would love to read more testimonies...:)  I do think it's a good mood booster, although I wasn't exactly in a low mood when I started.

Yaeli, what were your side effects?  Just think my only side effect would be feeling a bit more
wired than usual.  Maybe that means "Go exercise and use up the energy".  Wonder if trehalose
without ribose would be less energizing.  Might try plain trehalose after a few days.  Bought that
from Swanson's....thought I would use it as a sweetener but never did....so had it ready to try.
Made my skin feel soft and smooth.

I never had any troublesome side effects from TC even with larger doses of it. I have heard of people with high blood pressure having a slight elevation when they first started taking it. I was having a little problem with my BC before I started taking it but not long afterwards that went away entirely. Whether TC was responsible for helping with that, I don't know. I certainly don't mind giving it the credit, though! (smile)

One of the reasons I like Trehalose Complex instead of plain Trehalose is the addition of pectin, which helps the body carry out redundant cellular waste that is being eliminated.  And the Ribose, of course, which has done wonders with my chronic fatigue.  :)

I think it just helps me feel more alert.  Hard to know if it helped my skin but skin in looking better.  Hard to tell because I also bought a cosmetic product right around the time the TC came out that is supposed to help with dark spots on the skin.

Thanks yaeli....OK, so I went back to read your post about why it took you so long to reach one
teaspoon....and from what I understand, the full dose of TC seemed to have pushed you too fast in a positive direction, at a speed that was uncomfortable and strange..  I'm making myself aware of your experience and keeping my dose low enough so I'm feeling that my body is fully accepting of 1/2 tsp of TC and 1/2 tsp of ARA.  So far so good.

Day #4.  What I'm starting to feel is something that reminds me of peeling away layers of an onion.
It's rather esoteric and abstract for me to try and put this into words....but I guess I could say that
it feels like moving in the right direction, about to make changes for the better, but at the same time, it's leaving something behind and letting completely go of what was.  I had a dream last night
that I was about to be settling into a new space....and the dream had me going into a room of which
there were many like it....many doors....and I chose one room....started settling down, unpacking,
and then suddenly, other people appeared....as if they had chosen this room or space....and at that
point, I had to decide if this was truly the best room to have chosen, or did I want to give up my
space and let others take it and find even a better space.

The choices in my dream reminded me that normally, if I had found something and declared it mine, that I would wish to hold onto it....I wouldn't so readily give up something when I had nothing else
to replace it....but in this dream, I very willingly gave up my space with nothing to replace it....
was ready to move into the great unknown and find another space...I wasn't attached to anything.  I was fluid and open to change whatever needed to be changed.

Pretty darned profound if you ask me.  :)

An update: about 2 weeks ago I reached the recommended Trehalose Complex morning dose, 1 level teaspoon (I still take it only once daily). This took me a whole year. I began with half a teaspoon, later gradually added another quarter, until I recently dared to start taking the whole tsp. I am experiencing/witnessing significant small improvements in getting organized. Keeping simple basic order in daily minute chores is no more a problem to me - a tremendous relief. Daily chores flow and new small practical ideas keep popping in.

In short: Life feels sweeter than ever before.

I am so thankful that you have found something that makes life sweeter for you, Yaeli!  :K) You have certainly done the work to make the most of what TC has to offer! I am so happy for you! (sunny) (I don't know of any smiley that comes even close to being the moniker for TC!)

Peanut butter contains tryptophan and maybe the sugar in trehalose is a winning combination for
creating more melatonin.

All my life, I've had a problem remembering names, unless it is someone I interact with frequently.  And it became more of a challenge after a serious illness in 2001, plus the normal aging brain laziness.  After a week on Trehalose, I was surprised to find people's names coming to me.  And now, after much time with Trehalose, I am remembering people's names that I knew as a child and a teenager, that I haven't remembered in decades!  It's quite a marvel to me.  (hehe)

OH YES...

as for energy.. we need quite a bit of energy to sleep .. A harried body can  not sleep, can not rest enough to breath, digest, and release.  All that takes energy. If that energy is not there then TC in my interpretation, will at first maybe energize you 'unpleasantly', while later once the body has adjusted, it may no longer be as critical.

I forgot but I think I have taken it both for energy in the morning and for energy to go to sleep.  I believe it can work both ways.. and it can work to the opposite.  In either case it is a means of testing it on YOU and ME .. we are no way the same, and I am not the same every day.  I change every hour every day.

For instance in one diet plan I have used, sleeping 7-9 hours a night was the only way to drop of the weight... specifically getting enough sleep was important!

and.... I believe that as we stop to sleep like babies, we gain weight.  To many waking hours for one, and late evening hours allow more thoughts of food (less my problem, when I go to sleep by 8) - the issue I have is waking after 3-6 hours.. ! so I struggle with dropping weight --  I think on some days it would not hurt to use all sort of things to give me energy to sleep.. maybe time to take the second spoon at night??? Maybe not every day.. but on especially tired days..

I would advise new people to take it by 3 pm.. energy to stay awake all evening and wear off by sleep time.. ?   It's in the testing on one self.  Good luck..

Today was day #6 on TC.  What I'm noticing is a feeling of more strength in my body...maybe its increased stamina, but also mentally, I feel a lot of determination to get daily exercise.  I'm sleeping very deeply for 8-9 hours, but I was sleeping deeply prior to taking TC.  i also take 9 mg of melatonin before bed and wake right up without feeling groggy, so I know it's not too high a dose.  I used to
wake up in the middle of the night and couldn't fall back asleep.  That never happens now.

Is the dose supposed to be divided? (I should have read the container for info).  Just taking 1/2 tsp
of each so far (ARA6 + TC) and don't know if I need more or want to risk taking too much too soon.
For now, this feels like the correct dose.

Anyone ever do muscle testing to see if a supplement or food is good for your body or not?  When I
muscle test the two containers, I become incredibly strong....Individually, I'm not very strong on
ARA 6 but when I hold both containers together or test my glass already filled with both formulas
plus lemon juice, I am SO strong it's ridiculous.  The body always knows what it wants and needs.
Trusting myself!  :)

As for buying trehalose separately.  I have a container from Swanson's....I use it to splash on my
face after I wash it....(add water to 1/2 tsp of T and let it dry on my skin).  I've tasted a bit of it....just to see what it tastes like but I haven't used it instead of TC as a supplement.

It is different from Trehalose complex, becuase it does not have D-ribose and Modified Citrus Pectin. These ingredients drive up the cost and change the chemical/nutrional profile.  Making Trehalose Complex suitable for a supplement, but too expensive to use as an ingredient in recipes.


Using pure trehalose may work well for some people, but I am better off using dates for sweetening recipes.

Cooking with pure trehalose is easy and does allow you to make foods that some alternative sweeteners do not work in.

This is a good point, Goldie and I agree.  

What we sometimes think of as substances to increase energy are actually stimulants which draw energy from our adrenals to allow us to push beyond our limits.  This type of thing ultimately lowers our energy stores and depletes us more and more.

True energy (vitality) not only enables hard work and play, but also the ability to let go and rest deeply.

Hi Everyone-

A positive note for this sugar complex from me too.
It is really a great product. I knew it since the description of Dr.D'Adamo.
I was careful the first time. I only took half teaspoon in warm water and lemon and followed all of the directions, for some products there is to be prudent.
I didn' t notice much at that time, but this last time with one level tsp, I did, and I could feel the sensation of wellness and energy since soon after taken, and so it has been for me with many other BTD products; I feel safe and secure only with the BTD products.

I treat it like sugar in whatever..

The quercetin issue was discussed in this thread in length. Personally I guess that by 1 hour away from quercetin Dr. D meant quercetin as a supplement, not within foods. The idea is to let the Trehalose Complex do its work for a while without interruption of other antioxidants. For my condition, I regularly take medicinal mushrooms half an hour before meal. These too are strong antioxidants and rich in quercetin. My personal solution then is to take TC first thing in the morning (post #984 above), then wait 1 hour before taking the medicinal mushrooms, green tea & Glycoscia, then wait 1/2 an hour before breakfast. There are lots of morning chores, incl reading in this forum & in FB, playing Lumosity - time flies  :) ;)

I have long converted to taking Dr D's sups only.. I save a lot of money not falling for every other thing in the emails I get or going to healthfood stores..

I have given up all sugar pooring from a sugar bowl over 40 years ago... so I have no need for sugar / I eat sweet foods instead, when I cheat.. I do not bake and I do not cook with sugar... Yet I would some day (for kids deffiniltly) buy  plain Threhalose in place of sugar  for a self test for its value after I can  think of any reason to use it.  

Having said that:  I really like TC because it is so 'sure' to work as a cheer me up, and giving me endless enery.

... I received email today talking about the reasons why we may be experiencing what we do, feel bad, lethargic, sick and getting fat.... It may well be RIGHT on in its educational efforts for people that have never really been able to learn what we learned here...  

In this instance: I do believe the email, but my response is that: I will use TC for THE detoxing reccomended elsewhere.  cheaper and I feel secure.

I can not separate out from what Dr D said is most important.. THe D- Ribose or the Threhalose.. I do not know If the Trehalose is only a sweet /sugar replacement, GooD for diabetics, and on easy thing to get the Ribose delivered in a sweet way.  But I am certain that the T Complex interaction is most deffinitly adventageous.  

Cloe, I take it on days when I think of it.. ( I get lazy after a while) but by taking it intermittently I feel the effect Double!  I received the Membrosia Complex [color=red][/color] from Dr D's clinic and so I am now taking both together.. about the same heaped tea spoon as before.  It energizes me ALL day.  when I run out of one or the other, TC or MC, I will ask the clinic which to take, why and how much...

...and I take it in the am only unless I wish to stay awake longer into the evening. (ha I can go to sleep with the chickens.. but I also wake up way to often haha bhoo hoo.)  I have been drinking 1/4 spoon of coffee for my headaches( daily for 6 hours) ... I don't know yet which is better, the small amount of caffeine or the painkillers... some day I will ask...

santina: Thanks for the link above.. its a good read... it might even answer some questions I listed above..

This thread (started by Spring) shows on the first few pages all that is needed to teach one self.  It is the best explanation until you jump and get TC for energy and brain cleansing or MC sent to you and you take it.  MC is to balance fluids within..  



why am I so long winded when it comes to something I am fond of?/  sorry ..

I think you'd be hard pressed to find a single Warrior on this site that loves this product.  If so, I'd like to know how long they've been taking it, and why they enjoy taking it.  My genotype is the type that needs to relax, and this product does the opposite to me.

Adam... I found some here on the first page odf the thread:  Andrea AWsec maybe she will come here or she is elsewhere why not ask her..  She also could ask Dr D at the clinic about it...

These all might be able to shed more light..  all from the first two pages here..


Now for me I might try to take it anyway if it is indicated that it is OK.. and I would expect that in a week at the most you would see changes that MIGHT allow you to relax naturally.  after a mayor detox.. Just wondering.. no idea if I am right..

I might buy Mushrrom derived Trehalose alone --- without the D-Ribose. That then would afford you the cleansing - as I understand it, but not the energy we others get from the Ribose..

Could to much energy be a sign of toxicity?

Well, it's not recommended by my SWAMI, so I think I'll pass.  I tried it twice and, although at first I was kinda wowed by it, eventually I just didn't feel right on it.  I tends to "key up" my system a bit more than I like.

Adam, I honestly feel as though I couldn't bear to live without it  :D   It seems to hone my A side in a way that I crave, as I tend to get quite anxious if not feeling sharp and able. On the other hand, my B side moderates things quite nicely-- I can relax nearly to the point of an opiate induced dream state almost at will. It wasn't always like this though. Now I feel more balanced... one part of my brain processing a complex problem, another part thinking "hey, that cloud looks just like duck..."

You being ISTJ, me being INTJ ... could this be the difference in our reactions to it?

i was wondering if TC and ARA6 together may help with amenorrhea and weakness.
anyway today it's the first day i've taken both, twice.

Quoted from Chloe
Today was day #6 on TC.  What I'm noticing is a feeling of more strength in my body...maybe its increased stamina, but also mentally, I feel a lot of determination to get daily exercise.  I'm sleeping very deeply for 8-9 hours, but I was sleeping deeply prior to taking TC.  i also take 9 mg of melatonin before bed and wake right up without feeling groggy, so I know it's not too high a dose.  I used to
wake up in the middle of the night and couldn't fall back asleep.  That never happens now.

Is the dose supposed to be divided? (I should have read the container for info).  Just taking 1/2 tsp
of each so far (ARA6 + TC) and don't know if I need more or want to risk taking too much too soon.
For now, this feels like the correct dose.

Anyone ever do muscle testing to see if a supplement or food is good for your body or not?  When I
muscle test the two containers, I become incredibly strong....Individually, I'm not very strong on
ARA 6 but when I hold both containers together or test my glass already filled with both formulas
plus lemon juice, I am SO strong it's ridiculous.  The body always knows what it wants and needs.
Trusting myself!  :)

As for buying trehalose separately.  I have a container from Swanson's....I use it to splash on my
face after I wash it....(add water to 1/2 tsp of T and let it dry on my skin).  I've tasted a bit of it....just to see what it tastes like but I haven't used it instead of TC as a supplement.


please can you tell me more about that "muscle test"? ??)

That's how I was taking it before Dr. D came up with Membrosia Complex. I don't notice a great difference  now with going the MC route, but I recommend it because I believe it's more synergistic and optimally formulated. And I would say the results for me have been more of a cognitive nature.  My physical state has improved significantly, but primarily before starting TC & ARA6, so I've always felt it was from adherence to the diet including targeted supplementation.

If ever something is not recomended as better than Neutral I would not go near it..

I learned to trust the ratings.. I save hundreds if not thousands over the years when I learned to trust DR D.

Trehalose complex was released after the current release of SWAMI Xpress.

To my knowledge SWAMI Xpress has not been updated to to include trehalose complex.

So I would not consider the non recommendation of trehalose complex as an indication to not use (or to use) trehalose complex.

No product is going to work well for everyone.

But this product has worked well for everyone in my family, particularly my mother (type O).

I've been taking the Trehalose Complex nearly a year?  I started out with small doses as the called for dose gave me a headache, and then I read about building up.  That worked good for me.  I also took the ARA6 with it.  Started with it first thing in the morning and then again at bedtime.  The last few months my supply has dwindled and I wasn't able to reorder as soon as I wanted, so I cut it back to 1/2  tsp. in the morning only.  I have an order on route, so am looking forward to getting back to a higher dosage.

As to more eneregy,  I think so, but can't say it was a wow increase.  I feel it helps so will continue to take it.

thank you so much!
reading about your experiences is very helpful.
so, after the first day i felt a bit of headache  after a while i took them with warm water and lemon but, more significantly i felt a lot of mucus during the night...
well, in trust, all night long i spit and i had a lot of mucus into the nose and the throat.
even now but a bit less.
so...i don't know. could it be a reaction to TC-ARA6?
if so, a good sign or not?

TC is designed to initiate cellular housecleaning, so all of these symptoms could be related to that...  I would continue to take it for several days at least and see if the symptoms get worse or better...  If they get worse, you may need to reduce the dose some to allow the body to catch up with the cleaning.
  If it continues to get worse after a dosage reduction, then it is possibly a bad reaction rather than a good one...

In the beginning I could take no more than 1/2 a teaspoon once daily. A larget dosage was giving me a bizarre feeling, as if I was on some drug, and I simply couldn't function. It took me MANY months to reach the dosage of 1 teaspoon daily. I'd think that even to cut to a 1/4 of a tsp in the beginning would be worth while. It's such a marvelous supp.  8)

Well I ordered some... I had to decide between this and the new El Dorado.  And Since Guarana sounds scary to me still since I get HYPED so easily, I thought I'd go with this to start.  

I'm not really having too much trouble with fatigue anymore due to following the Swami really closely, and I do take amino acids that help my brain immensely.. a combo of DL-phenylalanine, Tyrosine and L-Glutamine, and then a low does of L-Tryptophan at night.  

But I'm excited to try this Trehalose for many other reasons!  Hope to really feel a difference and report soon!
