the black seed you mentioned earlier gives all the health benefits talked about because it contains thymoquinone , I know of two ppl who've used it successfully on basal. both put it up in dmso and applied it topically. it takes a while this way but apparently works. I hate dmso. I don't know about the aftaxanthn, it also is a quinone but is also terpene derived and terpenes typically inhibit the oxidations necessary for these types of recoveries, also sugest be careful with amounts, small catalytic amount is good but too much has opposite effect.
