ascorbate

Quick fact. Ready?
Vitamin C is not only a very important antioxidant, but it’s also essential for the production of many other biological agents such as carnitine, collagen, and norepinephrine.

Vitamin C can be obtained naturally through food sources, or through additional supplementation in the form of ascorbic acid. Optimally, one should rely on multiple sources as supposed to just one.

don’t want it, i i i
don’t want its familiar shape
don’t want terrestrial pressures
don’t want it, not today

can’t handle it, my stiff arms
they don’t bend– not that way
can’t have it, i i i
can’t want it– it can’t stay

all dissolves with ten little oranges
divided, popped like clockwork
nothing swells save my blasted tongue;
ascorbic acid thins our blood

no one sees the bruises i get
from praying, no one
knows my angel’s shame
i suck the bitter from the peels,

down acid to clear my name.

3am work conversations on semen allergies

So it’s the witching hour at work and we are googling management of vulvar edema in trauma patients and semen allergies surprisingly comes ups as a cause and we click on it (we are a curious bunch) and it turns out it’s not too uncommon as semen is made up of protien complexes found in many foods. In fact, semen contains very modest quantities of the following substances: aboutonia, ascorbic acid, blood-group antigens, calcium, chlorine, cholesterol, choline, citric acid, creatine, deoxyribonucleic acid, fructose, glutathione, hyaluronidase, inositol, lactic acid, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, purine, pyrimidine, pyruvic acid, sodium, sorbitol, spermidine, spermine, urea, uric acid, vitamin B12, and zinc! Sounds pretty healthy to me 😜

anonymous asked:

I'm very insecure about going out bare faced. I have a lot of dark spots & acne scars. Is there a product on the market that clears this or will I have to go to a dermatologist and have a laser treatment done?

Products (some are spot treatments, some are for the entire face):

For at home SA and vitamin C are the best bet. Retinol is a great option if you’re in your 20′s+ too! You can always go to a dermatologist. A good Chemical Peel series can do wonders. They might suggest laser treatments depending on what they think is best.  http://lipstick-lust.tumblr.com/post/144531595137/i-have-some-acne-scars-on-my-cheeks-what-would

also the ordinary will be coming out with a 30% vitamin c suspension soon which should be like the 23% one but with an improved texture (without the grits) and 100% L- ascorbic acid for DIY purposes

Fish food Nutrition break down

Just a rough guide on different brands and their standard tropical, goldfish and betta fish foods. I will also focus on pellets if available as they’re usually more viable and nutritious for your fish and cause less problems. that will allow you to compare and decide what one is best for you and your animals. I won’t be reviewing them directly as I’ve only used a handful of brands personally, but I will break down the nutrition regardless. Bolded are the really good ingredients not including vitamins

As a general rule you want to look at whole/natural protein over general meal as the first few ingredients, fewer grain based fillers and a balanced nutrition ratio for your fish.

anonymous asked:

what skincare regime would you recommend for someone w oily acne prone skin w hyperpigmentation?

that’s kinda like my skin type, minus the oily. skin twins.. i know your struggle. 

also, what works for me may not work for you. always, always make sure to patch test before use! especially us acne prone people. i’m also not a skin care expert.. i’m just trying to pass on what i’ve learned from like 7-8 years of skin care, and dealing with acne.

//// super long post, just warning everyone. i’ll have a tl;dr at the bottom of the post for those who just want a short summary of the post! i talk too much

basically, my routine goes something like this: oil cleanser (if i’m wearing makeup) > foaming cleanser > pH adjusting toner > chemical exfoliation of the day (either vitamin c, BHA or an AHA. i rotate between the 3. don’t use all of them at once you’ll ruin your skin) > 30 minute wait, tbh i only do like 5 minutes i’m lazy > first essence > toner > serum > another serum > another serum > gel moisturizer > eye creams > finish.

what your ideal basic routine would look like is something like this:

oil cleanse (when using makeup) > foam > BHA > wait > toner > serum > gel moisturizer > eye cream > finish.

-

so, first things first that’s the most important part of a skin care routine is cleansing. if you wear makeup 2 cleansers is ideal. basically an oil (or balm type, it’s just a matter of preference) cleanser to get rid of makeup, and then a pH balanced foam or gel cleanser. you gotta make sure it’s pH balanced! 

there’s a couple of studies shown that using a cleanser that doesn’t disrupt the acid mantle. so what that basically means is that the ideal skin pH is at 5.5 (which is slightly acidic) and if it’s too acidic or too basic it’ll cause problem to the skin making it too dry or too oily. 

basically, if you cleanse with a cleanser that’s too basic, which most of them are btw at a pH of around 7 without water…, you’ll get that squeaky clean face which is not good at all! i know some people prefer that feeling but you shouldn’t be feeling like that after a cleanse. you’ve dried your face out and raised its pH.

washing your face with a balanced cleanser (5.5 without water, around a 7 with water depending on the pH of your tap water) is ideal and preps your skin for your other skincare steps. look for ones ranging from around 5-5.5. i’ll link some articles at the bottom if anyone wants to read more into the acid mantle and skin pH.

some foaming/gel cleanser recs: cerave foaming cleanser (which is my ultimate fav.. would die without it.), hada labo foaming cleanser (the one in the pump bottle, this), and cosrx gel cleanser.

oil cleansers are kinda tough to find, in my experience.. it took me years to find one that didn’t break me out and it’s not even an emulsifying oil cleanser. just straight up coconut oil that i have to wash away with my foam cleanser. i don’t rec it though, only a couple of people can use it without breaking out because it’s extremely comedogenic.. you’ll have to look around, test a few to find the one that’s meant to be..

-

next is chemical exfoliation… 

ok first before anything, i just wanna rec something if you live in the us. it’s called curology, which is basically prescription skincare for acne or anti-aging, online. i don’t get anything for basically promoting them but i should because i keep talking about them, they owe me money.. i’ve read soo many reviews about them and how they saved so many people’s skin. i wanna get it so bad but it’s not available in canada.. it’s also literally only $20 per month and that’s for the your own skin tailored prescription, consultation with a derm 24/7 whenever you want, and the bottle is pretty big too.

anyways.. moving on. chemical exfoliation saved my skin. mostly BHA but AHA is just as great too.. 

i’m just gonna talk about BHA and vitamin c.. BHA is an exfoliator (btw, don’t ever use exfoliators with little particles. so bad for your skin) that penetrates oils and cleans out your pores, it’s more recommended for oily/acne skin. i’m not gonna go too in depth, i’ll just post some articles if you want to read more about it! i don’t wanna make this post too long.

vitamin c is for pigmentation! if you wanna fade it, invest in a good vitamin c. preferably one with ferulic acid and vitamin e which prolong the shelf life and also enhance the effects of the vitamin c, if you’re going to buy a serum with l-ascorbic acid. there’s different types like MAP but l-ascobic is the most popular type.

make sure to work your way up when starting chemical exfoliation.. like for example starting off once a week, then twice, then three times. you’ll have an initial purge and that’s normal for like 2 weeks, anything longer than 2 months is breakout. also, you do not purge from any other product other than exfoliants and retinols! so if you experience a breakout from anything else, you’re just breaking out so stop using that product.

BHA recs: paula’s choice BHA (it’s nice, i find it leaves a weird film on my face… kinda expensive though. uses 2% salicylic acid which is a stronger BHA), cosrx BHA.. i think it’s called blackhead? blackhead bha maybe. the one in the see thro white bottle (my goddamn fav, i would die without you)

vitamin c recs: timeless skin care vitamin c (fav), OST vitamin c (not that stable but fades pigmentation really fast from what i’ve read), paulas choice vitamin c (again.. kinda expensive)

-

toners are easy peasy. just don’t get ones with alcohol plus ingredients you’re into (green tea, licorice, niacinamide, centella, etc) and you’re all good! it’s just another moisturizing step.

toner recs: hada labo lotion (it’s called a lotion but its more of a toner. it has hyaluronic acid which retains moisture.), acwell licorice pH balancing toner (licorice is so good for fading pigmentation!!!), ceracolla moisturizing facial lotion (with ceramides.. so good)

-

serums are the most important.. also my favourite part of my routine. ingredients to look out for acne prone skin are propolis, green tea, centella, snail, and niacinamide (super good for lightening scars).

i’m into diy-ing my own serums now. which is pretty easy to do with water soluble ingredients.. i do my own niacinamide serum and i’m working on some other ones as well. that’s also an option if you’re interested. 

serum recs: cosrx snail essence, tosowoong propolis serum, pure heals centella 90 ampoule, benton snail bee essence

-

next step is moisturizers. i’ll just link gel moisturizers, cream moisturizers, sleeping packs, oils and eye creams all together since they’re all function the same.

gel moisturizers if you’re oily, cream if you’re dry..

i know if you’re oily you’re probably cringing at the fact of putting more oil on your face but there’s a few research studies that show putting oil on your face helps stop your face from producing more excess oil.

sleeping packs are just mainly another hydration layer for when you’re about to sleep.

eye creams.. i know a lot of people say they aren’t necessary but i need them. my eye area feels dry as hell without them and also i need that extra brightening around there.

gel moisturizer recs: mizon snail recovery gel, mizon all in one snail, rosette ceramide gel

cream thick moisturizer recs (most of which contain fatty alcohols which have been know to make some acneprone people break out! so beware and patch test): benton snail bee steam cream, cosrx honey ceramide cream, most cosrx creams.. honestly. i love cosrx

sleeping packs recs: cosrx honey sleeping pack, cosrx rice sleeping pack, sulwhasoo overnight vitalizing mask

oils (make sure they’re cold pressed) recs: jojoba oil, argan oil

eye cream recs: mizon snail eye cream, manyo 4gf eye cream (fav! its really thick though so it’s not ideal under makeup)

-

end! that was soo long.. but i feel like i had to get all this info out..

TL;DR: just look thro the recs .. look thro the ingredients list, see what you like. curology is a really good alternative to a dermatologist! MAKE SURE YOU PATCH TEST!!!!!!!! cleansing is most important, get a pH balanced cleanser. BHA is good for acne prone skin but make sure you read up on it before using.

You Who Despised Citrus

Ascorbic city, deep sea
deficit of vitamins, a mean
minor of an eel, alleles
hiding that you’ve never
touched a lemon, that survival

didn’t deal you scurvy,
that you wave shoreward,
unreaching, and a little seal
in the diet does wonders
to hold the gums in.

ravenbara  asked:

Do you have a list of best to worst pellet brands? My girls are currently on fruit zupreem which I learned is not the best. I have the option of switching them to natural zupreem, lafebar pellets or pretty bird. Do you know which is best?

I don’t have a list of all of them but I get asked this a lot so hold on tight we’re going for a ride! Quick note that I am not a vet or nutritionalist, I’m just collecting information from various sources, if anything is wrong, missed, or misinterpreted please let me know so I can correct it. Ordered from best to worst, I would personally only feed the top 4.

mddeh  asked:

Ollie and Justin for the ship ask :?

I’ve grown more and more attached to the idea of these two dorks so this is amazing hit me with more ships like this!!!!!!!!

Drinks all of the coffee: Justin has A Problem and Ollie is getting concerned. Justin’s jittering and muttering “ascorbic acid” over and over again someone do something.

Brings up adopting a pet: Ollie wants a puppy and is vocal about this

Kills the bugs: It’s become a sort of game for Ollie (how many rubber bands do you need to kill a spider?) whereas Justin is on top of his desk and is not amused

Cooks the meals: Neither as there are people at the museum who take care of this but Ollie likes baking and is good at it so cooking does happen

Starts getting into holidays way before they should: Justin keeps saying that it is for “raising spirits” but Ollie is starting to suspect that Justin just likes Christmas and other asorted holidays

Initiates the couple selfies: Ollie takes adorable couple selfies with any old camera he can find an King of the Nerds Justin keeps them in frames in his office what a loser 

Forgets the birthdays and anniversaries: Neither since Ollie is a official day counter and Justin seems like the type of guy to remember everything

Always ends up with too much junk food after grocery shopping: Ollie has a thing for mars bars and one day that might kill him

Nicknames the other: Ollie does it once as a joke then it becomes serious. Jackson uses it as well to tease Justin

Thanks for the ask!!!

Vitamin C Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

The first week of 2015 is shaping up to be a frigid one, with the National Weather Service reporting bitterly cold temperatures and snow moving across large swaths of the northern U.S.

When the mercury falls, many people start thinking about getting sick. One of the first things they turn to in order to avoid the misery of the common cold or flu is vitamin C. Though many studies have shown that most people see little benefit from taking the vitamin to decrease the incidence and severity of the common cold, the public gulps the stuff down when the temperature plummets.

Reviewing the current research out there, the NIH’s National Center for Complimentary and Integrative Health says taking vitamin C does not prevent colds and only slightly reduces their length and severity. The best chance a person has of not catching the flu, meanwhile, is to get the yearly influenza vaccination since there is no conclusive evidence that taking any supplement is useful.

Sleep Ciel, sleep... (Kuro113 thoughts 1/2)

As always, only my thoughts part 1 on 2 (so I can get them out of my head) so you don’t have to read and even less to agree. :) There might be a little of chemical/medical stuff so I’ll try to stay simple, but as always feel free to ask for explanations.

Spoilers for ch113 and below is a little TL;DR/summary in case you want to be sure you won’t waste time reading something completely uninteresting lol (nah because it turned out to be long and I don’t want to bore you with everything, so pick up your favorite subjects and read what you like):

  1. “Too lovely corpses” -> D’aww, thanks UT!

  2. “Please join Bravat’s blue sect! We’ll make sure to intoxicate your body with chloroform to the point you’ll never wake up.”

  3. Violet aka the MVP of this chapter, a new candidate for the place as Ciel’s best friend

  4. The end with a small parallel to ch108

Now that it’s been proved I am actually not funny, here’s the actual post under read more for the interested ;)
