Quoted from Amazone I.Beta glucans often are made from oats ...so far :-/...I'd give a try to the medicinal mushrooms like Hericium and Pleurotus ostreatus...give a try first to the powders...if too less efficient come along with the extracts...(pray)(smarty)
Quoted from SpringThey seemed to quote the attorney general overmuch. How about some real science instead?! Right now the attorney general of New York along with any others he can corral into the lawsuit from other states are going after supplement companies that have been around for numerous years trying to prove that they are selling products that don't even contain what they say they do. I wouldn't be at all surprised if this attorney general is not at the least being encouraged to do this by Big Pharma. The problem is that they are demanding outrageous amounts of paperwork from the companies which is only going to cause the price of supplements to skyrocket. It infuriates me.
Quoted from Amazone I.Mp so from what was this beta glucan first made of??) Barley ??).... :-/ I think and saw always also in those products gluten and gliadin is always contained also as information and still can be real bad triggers... :o :P ::)
Quoted from misspuddingAs a scientist, I appreciate the attempt to make sure that folks who sell supplements aren't ripping off people. I mean, let's say you sell someone the equivalent of rice powder in a capsule and charge $50 for it? No one will be the wiser (placebo effect is a very big, real thing) unless they've had the real deal before.
I believe in the wisdom of Dr. D. I'm just curious and, unfortunately, a skeptic. Since I've been instructed to buy fiber for my son to help his motility issues, it doesn't really matter to me what kind of fiber it is, as long as he tolerates it well. The immune regulating properties of larch, if they're true, are a huge bonus. I guess the only way to find out is to give him larch and see what happens. :)
Quoted from Spring
The companies I mentioned have already been checked and rechecked before. Puritan has always been at the top, so what I don't order from Dr. D. and a very few other companies, I order from them. I would NEVER order or buy from the company that the article was all about simply because of their structure. There is much more out there than the people writing the article either chose not to mention or did not know. Have you read what Dr. D. has written about Larch (ARA)? He was the reason it got so popular to start with! I am very happy that he brought it to the attention of the world! (smile)
