Lutimax Luteolin Supplement

Postby dabaxter » Wed Sep 23, 2009 9:41 am

Anybody tried this yet?
I had planned on adding in supplements containing small amounts of Luteolin, such as artichoke and hawthorn extract, because there was no Luteolin supplement. Now there's one out there, but it's really really pricey at $70. Anybody tried it or found another Luteolin supplement?

I've been reading some parent feedback on this supplement which apparently helps with inflammation. It is based on similar principles to Neuroprotek. Has anyone tried it and if so, any feedback?

Thanks

If I could find a supplement that had just Luteolin in it, I would definitely try it.

dabaxter, this site has both separate luteolin and rutin powders. The company is called Beyond a Century.

I've been using Lutimax pediatric powder for a couple of weeks now. My daughter is showing better focus, speech and is calmer on it. It's similar to Neuroprotek but without the quercetin. A number of parents were saying good things about it on several of the yahoo groups I belong to, so I decided to try it, given that we do well on celery juice.

For anyone interested, here's the link:

You found some. Awsome! Thanks. I wish it was in capsules. I guess I can't afford to be too picky.

K,
Thanks for the feedback. Is the only active ingredient in it Luteolin?

I've seen those videos as well and don't know what to think. They are encouraging but like most parents I now take reports of amazing progress with a big grain of salt. I started looking at this supplement for a few reasons, though. My daughter's best progress comes from anti-inflammatories and immune modulators, the problem is that most anti-inflammatories have side effects she cannot tolerate. Very frustrating.

The pediatric Lutimax contains luteolin and no fillers. At one point, I was giving my daughter three glasses of fresh juice a day which contained vegetables high in luteolin and she was doing much better. I then looked into Neuroprotek, but it contains quercetin which sometimes causes absence seizures for us, so I then looked at Lutimax. I have to say, the combination of Lutimax, Enhansa, Boswellia and Advanced Inflammatory Control from VRP is doing terrific things for us.

I really like Lutimax - my daughter is just better on it, better eye contact, improved speech; we will stay on this.

O.K., I have to say that this is one amazing supplement. We've been using the Lutimax Pediatric Powder and it has been doing very good things for my daughter, particularly in the area of dyspraxia and speech. It is supposed to decrease brain and gut inflammation. I give it with No-Fenol as it supposed to be very phenolic and it has stirred up yeast big time - my daughter is also having peeing accidents with it, so I am decreasing other anti-inflammatories we are on to reduce detox load. I have never used another supplement like this. The reason I started it was that I read luteolin is found in celery juice and my daughter always did great on celery juice, but many days I just did not have time to make it.

I am still researching this supplement - I read somewhere that it is a phyto-estrogen and am trying to find out what that implies. Also, on a yahoo group I frequent, some parents give this with a surfactant(?) and MSM to reduce side effects. Even though this is a natural supplement, it is very strong, start with a tiny amount.

I am bumping this up because I am really impressed with this supplement and I want other parents to have a look. Please look at the video and the last article I posted about what effect it has on microglial inflammation. This stuff brings down inflammation - for my daughter it has had the same effect as when she was on Prednisolone and even better. We have been on it for about a month and the changes have been completely unexpected.

I don't mean to be a pain, but this is very exciting for me!

That is great news! I get excited when I know something is working too!

What dosage did you start on? The pediatric Lutimax says it can be started as low as 1/4 teaspoon. How quickly did you ramp up on dosage?


Thanks!

I started even lower than this, like 1/20th of a teaspoon if that's possible and added a tiny bit every day. This is really potent stuff, for us, at least. We are now steady on 1/4 tspn once a day - I know other parents use more, but this is as much as my daughter can tolerate.


I hope your child does well on Lutimax! Please keep us posted how you do.

Mine came with instructions to dose 4 times daily on an empty stomach for maximum results. Is anyone doing this ... just curious.

Thanks for keeping us posted. I'm am going to order some of the capsules. What is your dose in mg and how much does your child weigh?

Are you still seeing as much progress, even after dropping the other supplements?

Are you chelating while on this?
