    Caffeine relieves my migraines...but why?

    So the last few days I've had huge migraines. I started Levothyroxine (that may be it) and am on a low carb diet so I don't know what it is.

    So this study shows that one of the heat shock proteins is important for viral entry of coronaviruses (and many other pathogens!). The author looked for substances that are helpful in binding to HSPA5 ,so it won't bind to the virus. That's at least how I'm reading it. It's already known that...

    Should you quit coffee to fix a vitamin B1 deficiency?

    In my newsletter, I asked which topic people would like to see the most, and coffee and B1 were upvoted the most. I know it was also a "hot" topic a while back on the forum, so that's why I decided to post it here as well. View: https://youtu.be/ahDYNNFnFrI

    £14 shampoo is used to treat hair loss associated with COVID‐19

    Alpecin shampoo: Caffeine, Taurine and Niacinamide (are corporations on to Peating?)

    Just bough this German brand: Alpecin. It contains caffeine, taurine and niacinamide. After a long search for a perfect ready-made shampoo, I may have found it. I was looking in American stores for the longest time and all the caffeine shampoos have garbage like hemp oil or other seed oils...
