Question: Does folic acid act differently in the body than natural folate? | Masterjohn Q&A Files #68They don't really. Everything that is said bad about folic acid is sort of true to an extent but has been completely exaggerated in some circles. What happens is you have an enzyme called dihydrofolate reductase, or DHFR. Its purpose is not to metab…
 
Question: Can frozen vegetables be trusted for folate? You absolutely cannot trust frozen vegetables as a source of folate ever. That's because folate is extremely unstable in the freezer, and you have no idea how old the vegetables are. If they were fresh-frozen yesterday, they'd probably have plenty of folate. But if they were fresh-frozen three …
 
Question: How much spinach, broccoli, and kale is too much? Cruciferous vegetables have an issue with potential goitrogens. At serving sizes like this, the only issue with cruciferous vegetables is that they increase your iodine requirement. In theory, if you are juicing cruciferous vegetables to have like ten servings a day, in theory, you might g…
 
Question: Can you give any suggestions for increasing delta-6 desaturase activity? There's a bunch of nutrients involved in that, so many that you basically just need to do a comprehensive nutritional screening for whether something is missing there. You might just have low activity by genetics. It's probably not worth solving that problem. The big…
 
Question: What are the pros and cons of boosting sulforaphane? Sulforaphane, the nice thing is it promotes detoxification. The bad thing is it raises the need for iodine. I don't know what ratio to take, but you definitely want to make sure that you're getting some kind of iodine into your diet, whether it's through like 200 micrograms of iodine fr…
 
Question: Is it true that we can’t absorb more than 1.5 grams of creatine at one time? I don't think that's true. From what I looked at, it looked like the absorption of creatine was really, really good. I don't know if someone was arguing maybe that we don't retain more than that. But I think the retention of your muscles is going to be best with …
 
Question: NMN vs. NR: What’s better? And is TMG necessary? Yeah. There are no human studies looking at NMN and how it's metabolized. There are studies of NR. No one has showed any positive benefits of supplementing NR in humans yet, but they haven't really done any long-term studies or looked at many things, and they really haven't looked at anythi…
 
Question: What to do about cataracts. Carl Rayner says, "Cataract in one eye becoming noticeable. This eye had a posterior detachment about 11 years ago, which is basically healed. I've been on a low-carb diet for over 40 years. Eat raw cream cheese, eggs, meat and liver. In the past few years, adding fasting and more keto diet. Saw your thoughts a…
 
Question: What can be done nutritionally to specifically improve antiviral immunity? Certainly, the fat-soluble vitamins, vitamins A and D, both important. Lauric acid as a fat. Coconut oil might be a good fat choice for the fat in your diet. Monolaurin would be a very good choice for a supplement. Lauricidin is the best monolaurin to take, 3 to 10…
 
Question: If free T3 looks good, why is TSH still a little high? Why hasn't the T3 brought it down enough? Your thyroid gland makes thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormone increases your metabolic rate and does a lot of related things. Your hypothalamus is governing that by controlling your pituitary, the master endocrine gland, and its secretion of TSH, …
 
Question: What food supplements and training programs are good for developing muscle mass? Overwhelmingly, what matters for muscle mass is working out, eating enough protein, and eating enough calories. You want to try and hit 10-20 sets per muscle group per week with eat set hitting within 80% of failure. So, if your doing a set of 8 reps but you …
 
Question: Should I manage my total cholesterol of 305 just for my doctor or should I be doing it for my own sake? If so, how should I do it? You should want to improve your lipid profile for a lot more than to please your doctor. Let's revisit this from a cholesterol skeptic point of view. Uffe Ravnskov, he wrote a book called The Cholesterol Myths…
 
Question: "Do you have any recommendations on how to get enough calcium on a low-carb, no-dairy diet? I've read that vegetables provide calcium, but bioavailability is poor." The bioavailability of calcium from different vegetables is highly dependent on the specific vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables have very good bioavailability. It's better tha…
 
Question: What should people with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency be doing not just about glutathione, but about folate, vitamin K, fatty acids, and neurotransmitters? G6PD, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, is an inborn error of metabolism. It's the most common one in the world. About 8% globally have some impairment in th…
 
Question: If my tryptophan is low, and I'm on a low-carb diet, would you recommend 5-HTP supplements or tryptophan supplements or both? There are multiple reasons why tryptophan could be low. It could be that you are not eating enough protein, or it could be that you have a high utilization of the tryptophan. I would look in the test and see if the…
 
Question: What to do if signs and symptoms of zinc deficiency persist despite taking 75 mg zinc gluconate per day. You should do plasma zinc. Also you know I kind of wonder whether you're taking that right. So if you're taking 75 milligrams of zinc like at one time then it's not surprising because you're absorbing like seven of those milligrams. Th…
 
Question: Is a high value of arsenic a concern? Yes, arsenic is a toxin. You probably don’t want a lot of it, if it's just a little high it might not cause terrible damage. I would look at methylation if I saw high arsenic, because methylation is needed to get rid of arsenic. Oh actually I should add that methylation supplements have been shown to …
 
Question Are low polyunsaturated omega-6 values on the ION test a concern? Not the total, but if the arachidonic acid levels are low I would look at low arachidonic acid intake, or inflammation, or oxidative stress. It would concern me because arachidonic acid is important to a lot of physiological functions, but I don't care about the total omega-…
 
Question: When high selenium does not come down in response dietary efforts and cessation of supplementation, what's going on? Either there's high levels of selenium in the soil where your food is grown, or you have low methylation because methylation is needed to get rid of excess selenium. This Q&A can also be found as part of a much longer episo…
 
Question: Creatine, when is it recommend that if you don't have the MTHFR SNP that causes methylation problems? 1.)When you want to improve your physique. 2.)When you want to improve your athletic performance. 3.)When you have a rare creatine synthesis disorder. 4.)If you have depression, it might help. 5.) If you have any signs that something else…
 
Question: When should tryptophan be taken on a keto diet? Night, day, both? Presumably you're doing this to try to increase tryptophan getting into the brain. The best thing to do is to take it two to three hours away from other protein. The second consideration is if you have an allotment of carbs that you concentrate at one time of day, then it w…
 
Question: Do you think there are true non-responders to creatine, or do you think that those apparent non-responders have some defects in methylation that makes typical doses of creatine sufficient only for other needs. Alex Leaf would be a great person to ask about this and he's not here right now… [Alex appears] Alex, so Jen's question is are the…
 
Question: How do I bring up low levels of arachidonic acid? Should I supplement with 250 milligrams? What brand is there from well-known company? If you want 250 milligrams of arachidonic acid, eat an egg. I don't know anything about arachidonic acid supplements yet, except that they exist because you can eat eggs and you'll get plenty. Do you want…
 
Question: How to interpret the pattern of high citrate, low cis-aconitate, low glutamate, and high glutamine. The aconitate and citric acid are markers on the citric acid cycle where we metabolize most of our energy. If citric acid is high and isocitric acid is low, (this must be the Great Plains Test which doesn't have isocitrate/cis-aconitate) th…
 
Question: What are the best ways to optimize glutathione status for someone who has a G6PD deficiency? Riboflavin was shown to be of benefit for normalizing oxidative stress in people who have glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. So for people who don't know what this is G6PD is, glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase is an enzyme that you use …
