    Ray Peat Email Advice Depository

  • tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    5α-DHP - Liquid 5α-Dihydroprogesterone For Lab/R&D

    ****DISCONTINUED****DISCONTINUED****DISCONTINUED**** Replaced by allopregnanolone, which is a direct metabolite of 5α-Dihydroprogesterone (5α-DHP). https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/allop-liquid-allopregnanolone-for-lab-r-d.41055/...

    5α-Dihydroprogesterone (5α-DHP) - The Primary Progestogen Neurosteroid

    It has been shown that progesterone rapidly metabolizes into more saturated metabolites such as 5α-Dihydroprogesterone (5α-DHP) and tetrahydroprogesterone (also known as allopregnanolone or Allo). The enzyme 5-AR is the one responsible for the saturation, just as it is responsible for the...

    Androsterone - Liquid Androsterone For Lab/R&D

    Edit (10/6/2022): Androsterone seems to be indeed a very effective precursor to DHT in-vivo, as demonstrated by the test results discussed in the thread below. https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/idea-labs-hair-test-for-androgens.47974/post-856197 EDIT: Since I keep getting questions...

    Vitamin A Is Anti-Estrogenic

    Unlike all the other studies I have seen this is an in vivo study, so it provides some guidelines on dosage. The human equivalent dosage would be in the range of 200,000 - 250,000 IU of all-trans-retinoic acid (which is a metabolite of retinol). That is on the high end, but note that the...

    Selenium Is Anti-estrogenic (aromatase Inhibitor)

    Another confirmation that most of the substances favored by Peat have anti-estrogenic action even if he did not directly state it. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22128327
