Have a few questions and finally some time to write them out. I'm making separate threads to keep them straight.
So Banderol, just got the nutramedix bottle in the mail, also some Cat's Claw tablets and other support stuff. But I'm not sure if I'm doing it wrong.
Does anyone think it really matters if you mix the Banderol in something other than water? I've begun starting my day off with a "detox" concoction where I mix a bit of lemon juice, some cranberry juice, 8 or so drops of stevia (from nutramedix, though I've long used stevia), and some MSM powder in a glass with about 4oz of water. I've been adding the Banderol to that, after the water, giving another stir, and then drinking it down while taking my serrapeptase, Cat's Claw, and a "greens" detox tablet.
I then puts around the kitchen making my bullet-proof coffee (all I can stand in the morning) which also has more MSM, some gelatin powder, and stevia. I slowly drink about two mugs of that over the next hour or two. At some point after those two cups of BPC I take the rest of my morning supplements (curcumin, vitamins, etc., whatever I'm trying at the moment).
I'm not a morning person, and with Lyme my mornings are worse. And I have an ADHD husband to get to work, and an ASD kid and a preschooler to get to school. I'm not sure a more spaced out protocol would be doable for me consistently. And I've been looking around for the actual reason why it's suggested to take banderol on it's own, and not finding it. But usually that's said in connection to also taking the samento drops - does it matter if one's taking cat's claw tablet instead? (the tablets will take some time to dissolve in the stomach, so they aren't hitting the body at the same time).
I was also thinking about maybe taking the banderol like it's CBD or b12 - looking in the mirror and dropping it straight under my tongue, and then holding it there for a minute before swallowing. This seems to be a more direct method to absorb it, unless there's a reason for diluting it before drinking???
But, I didn't spend the money on this stuff to make it ineffective, and flush money down the drain (literally). So....thoughts? Am I doing this all wrong?
