    Navel Application / Absorption Rivals Intravenous One, Skin Route Not Far Behind

    One of the most common questions I get from my readers is "What is the topical absorption rate of your products?"

    Bioavailability, Androgenicity, And Estrogenicity Of DHEA

    I know that some forum members are considering taking or already are taking DHEA. As Peat has warned, and several studies confirmed, DHEA can be converted quite easily into estrogen if the dose used is too high or the person is under stress. In addition, there is some confusion about what route...

    Taurine Enhances Bioavailability Of Vitamins K, A, D, E

    The fat soluble vitamins are a great tool to help metabolism and improve overall health. However their oral usage is sometimes hindered by their requirements for ingestion of fat. In the case of vitamin K2 (MK-4) the fat requirement can be large (35g+) and thus inconvenient to implement while on...

    Oral Magnesium Effective For Hypertension

    Human study, using oral magnesium oxide (1g daily) for 4 weeks. The 1g magnesium oxide provides 600mg elemental magnesium, so the dose is not that high. With a more bioavailable form like magnesium bicarbonate or glycinate a person will probably get the same effects from 300mg-400mg elemental...
