Oh, well you'll lose that battle my friend, unless, and I stress the unless part because something has changed with pubmed, in my research. Why is the search engine being funky? Why do I have to spend 4 times more time to get to what I used to get to immediately? Dammit Pubmed you made this hard, and possibly lengthy - I apologize for that, I have social requirements which take up time from this awesome sort of thing. Not making excuses, but can someone explain the difference? Anyways, you have your valid points, and I had mine solidified in 2009, but as time allows, I'll re-fetch everything for you, and maybe the friction I perceive between us won't be so much. Hope is always a gambit, so it's lower on the virtue scale than others. Working to retrieve your B complex levels. Please allow for the time, as it's not exactly like I'm some does-nothing individual. Thank you for your support.
BTW, just out of wonder if you're into Carnosine levels in the brain and muscles: Beta-alanine/ or carnosine, just wondering while I peruse this suddenly fucked pubmed.... I guess to bide the time, maybe just BA? Based on what I showed you? I'm just interested is all, since you challenged me on it - and maybe we can exchange workout routines too - who knows? MY myelin sheaths are in need of new stimulation.
Trust me, I have no hostile or combative intent in this discussion. I originally asked you for evidence about histidine because you were confident in claiming that supplementing b-alanine does not deplete endogenous stores. I just wanted to see the evidence, as I like b-alanine, and wanted to be completely ensured of its safety.
As to this particular challenge, I have come across a lot of evidence that suggests supplementation of folic acid is potentially dangerous, and didn't want to ignore it in this thread. As for the evidence you have seen, I am interested because I have only seen one study about improved cognition by high B-1, but it was limited to a small sample of female college students. I currently supplement 1000mcg of B-12 every 2-3 days for the long-term purpose of preserving cognitive abilities.
We should probably end this discussion on this thread, as it has significantly deviated from the initial topic.
