Resistant Starch (RS for short) is being called the biohack of the decade and with good reason. The majority of people experimenting with it are reporting dramatic improvements in well-being across a number of measures. Briefly the primary benefits seen are: Improved blood glucose & metabolism, Improved sleep and "movie-like" vivid dreams, Enhanced energy, mood and well-being, Improved digestion and bowel movements.
Old ways of trying to combat candida often involved a candida diet and a cleanse of some kind. However these strategies have largely proven to be ineffective. The science has evolved so that very specific strategies can now be used as part of a comprehensive plan to eliminate candida. Candida has been blamed for almost every disease under the sun. It is really difficult to establish cause and correlation however, because the human body is incredibly complex and the human Microbiome is even more complex.
Anxiety, Ammonia & the NMDA receptor *Disclaimer: This article is my research in progress and is unfinished . It seems that using Resistant Starch and properly repopulating the gut with appropriate bacteria is the solution. Excess ammonia production caused by: A +/- CBS upregulation leads to 10-15x higher ammonia production. (some controversy around this however) SNS dominance leads a higher degree of protein turnover (for energy creation) and production of ammonia. Glutathione depletion leads to higher [...]
