Things to consider, ref post 2
Maybe a few monkey wrenches here, sorry.
"Here are some things I have noticed since I got my nutrition near current 2007, plus glitches 2009 when I put the I/Se way up.
1. I require less sleep. Always a night person. midnight to 4am best. Now, I seem to never get to sleep until 6am or later. It was and is hard to interact with the normal world! I slept 16+hr/d and could not stay awake two hr straight, after I stopped my life threatening trucking career, 1990. After a year I got to around ten hr as normal. That stayed the need, though all too often not the achievement. When I raised Mg from 250 to 750mg/d in 2007, sleep dropped to 8hr. Adding iodine 25mg/d dropped it to 5hr 15min, exactly, self wakening. I can go back to sleep for another 1 1/2 hr, but do so only if it is really cold or pouring rain, etc.
Mind? Well, all the stuff I write here is straight out of my head, and I do the same in another completely unrelated realm, or two, maybe three.
2. Vivid dreaming - I have rarely had remembered dreams, and that has not changed through all of this. The few I do have are very vivid though.
"Some things I am hoping the liposomal TA activator will help with, in addition to all the existing benefits I enjoy from my high vitamin C intake."
"1. My hair is all grey." My hair/beard was dead white from 1995, I was in another very high stress situation. Stayed that way until the 2009 iodine/Se jump, when colour returned. Dark in beard, the blond of my childhood on head, grey throughout.
"2. Gland rejuvenation." Skin/hair is properly oiled, not too much, not too little. Hair loss dropped from lifetime normal by 90% when I added iodine at around 25mg/d. Same for dog, cats, people. This was noticeable-obvious in two days from start. Salivary glands work as never in my life.
Lacrimal glands too. Mucosa are all notably wetter, have to blow nose a little bit often, but it never gets clogged up. Sort of like a healthy dog!
"On the same order, my adrenal output of cortisol is "insufficient" and must be supplemented. If my adrenal glands are rejuventated, I would potentially be able to tell by slowly reducing my hydrocortisone and feeling whether that triggers inflammation, particularly in my fingers and joints."
I have no pain, inflammation, or other sign of low adrenal/cortisone/cortisol since 2001, when I figured out the AA/Magnesium/calcium/panto pain treatment. Any change to this with iodine/selenium was slight but for the better. I can now go 48hr without sleep, working hard, and a 5:15 sleep leaves me feeling normal. I used to do that and it took several lazy days to recover.
"3. Sex Drive/Libido." Lets just say that I have more than I have anything to do with it - as high or higher than anytime in my life.
"If others have any ideas for items (questions) we should include on our study questionnaire, we would appreciate it."
I think you need to include these nutritional items in any such investigations.
Good luck with this interesting experiment, though I see it as possibly repairing that which need not be broken.
One thing I have learned in my other life - Maintenance is cheaper and better than repair.
