Feel free to use KID451 for the same deal, as well.

Anyone supplementing with RS have any issues with bruxism (teeth clenching)? I have been taking a couple TBS before bed for the past couple weeks. My sleep has improved but my bruxism has increased to the point of all day headaches. Not sure if I want to continue love to hear anyone else's experiences.

I had some major issues a couple of months ago with teeth clenching and poor sleep when taking PS. I stopped all PS together for a week or two, and when I started again these issues didn't return. I'm taking about 2 1/2 tbsp of PS a day now with no clenching, and the only thing I can think of that I'm doing differently is taking all of it in the morning. Before I was taking a bit in the morning, and the rest before bed. Since I was clenching day and night, I'm not sure if timing had anything to do with the clenching. Maybe it just stopped on its own as my body became used to it.

My favorite blog, although I can't follow the science in many cases. This quote explains why some benefit and others don't.

Other healthy people may already have healthy gut flora that can exploit all of the soluble fiber in a compatible healthy diet, and need no further enhancement of their health by RS. Health always requires gut flora complementary to diet and each change in diet requires accommodation by corresponding changes in gut flora. Some changes in diet may require new species of gut bacteria."

dianejaquay, check out lowhistaminechef for a list of probiotics that are more easily tolerated if you have a histamine overload problem (like me!) basically you focus on brands that have more bifido strains and fewer of the l-casei etc strains.

fwiw the AOR 3 seems to be easily tolerated.

Random question: I sort of avoid rice because eating it sends me I to a food coma faster than too much pork belly (best sleep ever though, and nothing soaks up gravy from a curry better, oh and sushi!). Does anyone else feel sleepy from rice? Has anyone noticed less of this using parboiled rice?

I've been making rice w the family dinner (3 out of pat 5 nights) and then having my part cold right before bed. I seem fine, but then I want to be sleepy so idk about that part.
If it makes you sleepy try it before bed

What about these:
Cooked and cooled carrots
Rice flour - mixed with egg and green banana baked then cooled

I've never had that reaction to rice. I do always eat it with meat and veggies ... not sure if that makes a difference.
