That article with Dr Schallreuter confirms my experience with certain spicy foods as I mentioned earlier in the thread. Garlic salt appears to be one of them since after using a lot of it on my food for a period of time is when noticeable gray beard hairs suddenly began showing up. I also suspect high fructose corn syrup as another culprit. Even though graying is mostly genetic I think these foods may encourage it prematurely or accelerate its advance.

Vitiligo and diet: A theoretical molecular approach with practical implications:*

"Mango, cashew, pistaschio, oak, cassava, areca nut, red chillies, cherry, raspberry, cranberry, blackberry and tea contain naturally occurring plant phenol and polyphenolic compounds (tannins), which may aggravate vitiligo"

Omega-3, apples, onions, and whey protein could be beneficial.

I'm planning to buy a PH neutral medicinal shampoo to try it out next week. Hopefully it's a good choice.

For anyone who has any familiarity with UVB narrowband lamps, do either of the ebay listings below look like a legit product?  They are both cheap enough that I am a little skeptical.  The first one almost looks like someone put it together in their garage.

I've tried to understand everything but I don't dare to risk taking the plunge and mixing the powders.
Can someone tell me if I'm right:

step 1
- you mix powder a with water and then add powder b. Bubbles should be gone after 30 minutes.
step 2
- you add a drop of water peroxide and then all bubbles should be gone too.
step 3:
after a night you add another drop of water peroxide and then you should see no bubbles?

and how do you retest it?
It all sounds like chinese to me.

Hi @stefanovic. Your step 1 activates the pseudocatalase. At that point, if you want to see if it works, put a drop of the pseudocatalase solution onto a clean surface, and cover half the drop with hydrogen peroxide. It should bubble. Anytime you want to test if it is active, put one drop of the pseudocatalase solution onto a clean, dry, surface, and cover half the drop with hydrogen peroxide. 
  
If you are trying to find a good carrier, mix the pseudocatalase solution with the carrier (I would recommend only using a small amount of the carrier and a small amount of the solution in the proper ratio). Then test the carrier-pseudocatalase combination for activity by putting a drop on a clean, dry, surface, and covering half the drop with a drop of hydrogen peroxide. You can re-test whenever you like. If you know the carrier is good, I would recommend every week or two until you get used to how long the solution stays active in that carrier. The rest of the time keep the carrier in a closed container. 

Note: if the carrier is incompatible, it will bubble with the pseudocatalase solution when they are first mixed. Even good carriers will bubble a little, but a bad carrier will be inactive in a few hours. A good carrier will retain activity for many months.

Hope this helps.

Thank u so much. I still have the hydrogen peroxide 5 percent at home, is that okay for doing the test?

@stefanovic, we use OTC hydrogen peroxide, the concentration is not that important. The test is more qualitative than quantitative, but that is much better than no test.

Pseudocatalase - You wrote:

@wisdom1st, there is no EDTA requirement in the carrier.

Water would be an inferior carrier. Water reaches a natural equilibrium with hydrogen peroxide, so even tap water has H2O2 at a concentration of 0.1-1 millimolar. The pseudocatalase will react with the existing hydrogen peroxide and liberate water and oxygen. The container gets opened and the oxygen escapes, and then hydrogen peroxide reaches a new equilibrium in the water. So, the pseudocatalase reacts again. The higher the concentration of the water, and the more air exchange the container has, the faster the pseudocatalase will degrade. If you have a thick carrier to slow diffusion, and keep it in a closed container, you can get many months of activity out of your pseudocatalase. 

My question are as follows:

If water is an inferior carrier, then why is it mixed with the two powders to form pseudocatalse? Is that why there are bubbles when the water is mixed in? Is it better to use distilled water when mixing? Once the bubbles stop, is it then ready for the carrier? Are the two powders of equal quantity? The reason I ask that is because I would want to keep it in proportion when testing carriers. Is it critical to keep the proportions of  each powder? If one were to use 1/16th or .0625 of each powder for testing purposes, should the water that gets mixed in be reduced down to 1/16 or .0625? And if the two packets are to be mixed with 300 grams of a carrier, should that amount be reduced proportionately as well?
