2.5 mg of cholecalciferol are 100'000 IU (so 1000 IU = 25 mcg)brimstoneSalad wrote:D3 - 1000 IU of D3 (mcg?) How much oil is this dissolved in? Vitashine Cholecalciferol
Regarding oil, in my supplement there are 10'000 IU / ml (250 mcg/ml)
Yes (what do you mean by pure?)brimstoneSalad wrote:B2 - 600 mcg (is this pure?)
We have to choose between CDP or Alpha GPC.brimstoneSalad wrote:Choline - CDP / Alpha GPC 400 mg (are these solids, and what % choline are they? Do we need to add more in these forms? What's the bowel tolerance?)
CDP http://www.smarternootropics.com/cdp-choline/ (very useful article)Properties: colorless transparent liquid or white wax solid, easy to moisture absorption, but poorly soluble in water. Soluble in chloroform, petroleum ether, benzene, ethanol and ether. Insoluble in acetone. The unsaturated fatty acid oxidation can quickly in the air.
I also found how much choline is in them:Citicoline is water soluble and over 95% of an oral dose is absorbed
--Alpha-GPC contains far more choline per gram than citicoline does. The molecular masses are as follows;
Choline: 104.17g /mol (17)
GPC: 257.221g /mol (18) – therefore 40% approximate choline or 400mg per gram.
CDP: 510.31g /mol (19) - therefore 20% approximate choline or 200mg per gram.
As far as I can see, zinc supplements remain a personal preference. There are many types, but I can't find one that's best (altouhg, zinc picolinate has the highest absorption rate).brimstoneSalad wrote:Zinc - 5 mg @ 35 mg Zinc gluconate (14.35% Zinc) or: 32 mg Zinc Ascorbate (15.73% Zinc 84.27% C (26.8 mg C))
What DEVA puts in their Omega-3 DHA-EPA supplements is: http://www.veganstore.com/product/deva- ... luten-freebrimstoneSalad wrote:EPA/DHA - 400 mg (how concentrated is this? How much oil base?)
...............A - 300 mcg (1000 IU)
...............E - 15 mg (or more- we could maybe ask those companies, but I'm not sure if they'd give that info away?)
Microalgae Oil: 500mg
which typically provides:
Total DHA+EPA: 200mg
DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid): 120 to 140 mg
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid): 60 to 80 mg
Upper safe limit: 11 mg for 9-13 years old, 20 mg for adultsbrimstoneSalad wrote:Also: Boron. How much? What form?
http://www.acupuncturetoday.com/vitamin ... /boron.phpBecause boron is not considered an essential element, there are no specific recommended daily allowances for it. However, some researchers have suggested that people take one milligram of boron supplements per day. In addition, because boron is prevalent in many fruits and vegetables, most people consume an average of two to six milligrams of boron per day.
Regarding which form of boron is best, I found this supplement http://www.easyvitaminsandminerals.com/boron.html
It seems very efficient (it is made of Calcium FructoBorate and Fiberrific)
Boron is also best taken with manganese, calcium and Vitamin B2.
