Is there a difference between a calcium vs. Ionized calcium test?

Is there a difference between a calcium vs. Ionized calcium test?

Yes: Calcium has a positive electrical charge; many proteins have a negative electrical charge. So, the opposite charges can cause calcium can bind to proteins. The test for serum calcium measures all of the calcium in the blood (bound & unbound). The ionized calcium measures just the unbound. ...Read more

What is the difference between Vanadium nicotinate gylcinate chelate versus Vanadium amino acid chelate?

What is the difference between Vanadium nicotinate gylcinate chelate versus Vanadium amino acid chelate?

Not really any: Many drugs come as different salts, but the active ingredient is the same. The salt rarely causes any differences in the activity of the primary ingredient, but may sometimes alter the potency (the dose you need), or the absorption. Often the differences are only for the purpose of patenting a "different" chemical to be marketed. ...Read more

How is the decision made between which type of valve a surgeon replaces i.E tissue versus mechanical

Depends: The decision is made when taking into account the age of the patient and co-morbidities. Typcially, patients over the age of 65 are best served with a tissue valve, whereas younger patients would do better with a mechanical. The reason is that this minimizes the chance that the patient will have to have a re-do procedure. ...Read more

My protein supp. contains calcium caseinate, this form of casein is treated with alkalies. Chemical alkalies damage nutrient absorption. Is this true?

My protein supp. contains calcium caseinate, this form of casein is treated with alkalies. Chemical alkalies damage nutrient absorption. Is this true?

Alkali effects: The stomach and intestines have controlled pH environments to enhance macronutrients absorption. Although calcium caseinate has a higher pH it does not, by itself, interfere with nutrient absorption ...Read more

Does salt intake play a role in maintenance of systemic acid/base homeostasis?

Does salt intake play a role in maintenance of systemic acid/base homeostasis?

Indirectly, yes: Salt (sodium chloride and others, some with potassium) separates into ions in the body, and these ions play with the acidic and basic molecules in many ways. So a lack or excess of salt can change the electrolyte numbers in response to an acid/base derangement. For instance, potassium usually leaves the cells in acidosis causing an increase; if you're already deficient, that may not be noticeable. ...Read more

Is ascorbic acid a synthetic form of vitamin c? What is more effective calcium ascorbate or sodium ascorbate?

Is ascorbic acid a synthetic form of vitamin c? What is more effective calcium ascorbate or sodium ascorbate?

Not necessarily;same: All vitamins go by 2 names, their letter name & chemical name. Ascorbic acid is the chemical name of vit c, as pyridoxine is the chemical name of b6 etc.Ascorbic acid refers to both natural & synthetic forms.Almost all vit c supps are synthetic & most derived from corn which is likely gmo.I favor c from non-corn sources like cassava root.Calcium & sodium ascorbate are equally effective.See comment:. ...Read more

What's the difference from magnesium elemental from magnesium Glycinate/lysinate chelated, sodium bicarbonate, and magnesium oxide?

Diff. absorption and: Magnesium always occurs as a salt in combination with other things such as chloride, oxide, glycine, citrate, taurine etc. Some forms are poorly absorbed; for example magnesium oxide is only 4% absorbed, so it does not raise magnesium much but is a good laxative. The best-absorbed are glycinate and taurate and those amino have benefits. See https://www.organicnewsroom.com/magnesium-supplements/ ...Read more

What is the difference between potassium iodide and potassium gluconate?

What is the difference between potassium iodide and potassium gluconate?

Both potassium but..: Potassium iodide (ki) has potassium complexed with iodine but the other is complexed with gluconate. The former, ki, has more potassium than the latter by weight to weight comparison but it may cause more nausea. Potassium iodide has anti fungal properties and is used as supersaturated product for that (sski), potassium gluconate is frequently used over the counter to replace low potassium levels. ...Read more
