    Here's a new-to-me methylene blue source (found by Tyler, whose photography you will enjoy unless you're some kind of monster):
    Powder form (COA)
    Liquid form

    They shared a coupon code, but I don't know if it's supposed to be posted publicly. I can PM it to anyone considering ordering

    I'm curious to learn how their solvents compare to other MB sources, I don't know anything about MB manufacturing. Any comparisons with Oxidal, Haidut?

    I was reading the COA for the methylene blue powder, and Arsenic (As) showed up as a expicient. Do you think it's a problem ?

    I don't think so. It shouldn't actually be an excipient, they're likely testing for it as a leftover from the source materials / manufacturing (you'll see such heavy metal tests on just about any substance). And given the tiny doses of MB, even if it was actually 7ppm (which is unlikely), the amount per dose would still be pretty much nil.

    They said I can share the coupon code, it's "RAYPEAT" for 30% off. Not sure when it expires.

    So, being overwhelmed with Danwichism, I excitedly used the coupon and bought this in the powder form. :oops: Now I don't know what to do with it. Has diluting the powder been discussed anywhere?

    Hey HDD, I wrote them a quick note to ask if they have standard dilution instructions, I think they may make the solution from the powder themselves. If they don't have anything, I'll calculate it out.

    How much did you buy, and what amount do you want per drop?

    There are powder sources offered on EBAY. I don't know about purity. I'm actually using a product
    mentioned on other forums and marketed for aquariums. I'm only taking mcg levels at the moment.
    It's been about five days and what I believe to be discomfort related to medication-triggered hepatitis has improved.

    Bluebrainboost is a good choice if you're in the States. If you're in the UK, we've recently started selling our MB product, MitoBlue, on ebay.

    Can you provide a link, please? I could not find it: MitoBlue | eBay

    And excuse my question but your product is not related to the following, is it?: "We report the discovery of a fluorogenic dye, N1,N3-di(2-aminidonaphthalen-6-yl) propane-1,3-diamine, MitoBlue, which selectively stains functional mitochondria" (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/cb500552f)

    No need to excuse yourself Marteagal. No, we are not related to that particular product.

    Here is the product link: Amazon.co.uk: mitoblue

    We can do 20% cheaper if we deal via paypal. Just shoot me a private message if that works for you.

    I feel a lot better not taking Methylene Blue

    It raises metabolism too much, so I assume it is burning up all my copper/ zinc, sugar, selenium and oher nutrients

    Like I said in another thread, for some reason basically identical amounts of MB in Oxidal and bluebrainboost have very different effects on water. Blue brain boost makes it much bluer than the same amount of Oxidal. Haidut said this in response:
    "Oxidal also contains caffeine and benzoic acid, which can change the color of the MB if it partially oxidizes them and gets reduced in the process."

    This is a good point that I wish was raised on this forum more often. Who is actually measuring their reserves? This doesn't seem easy to do. I don't even see anyone tracking everything to the point that they know how low they are on possibly optimal trace-nutrient levels.

    By the way I took it for a year. The benefits were definitely lost after 3 months.
