    Cardenosine And Chelation

    For those aware of my issue I have some preliminary but interesting news. So when my left eye drastically declined I had distance consulted an optometrist who tends to implicate heavy metals along with nutritional deficiencies. Then, with limited time and funds, I went in some other directions...

    I'm Attempting Reversal Of Advanced PSC Cataracts, Feedback Appreciated

    In April a week after my 50th I finally noticed my vision was terrible. I'd been dealing with some major issues and sort of swept my declining vision under the rug. I've been myopic since age 13 so I was already somewhat used to it. At the ophthalmologist, my left eye tested "counting fingers"...

    High Metabolism Quickly Destroys / Chelates Endocrine Disruptors Like BPA

    I suspect the topic of endocrine disruptors is on many forum users' minds. We have had multiple discussions about them here, and the ability of chemicals like BPA / BPS to act as thyroid antagonists and estrogen agonists. Bpa-free Plastic Just As Dangerous As One With Bpa Plasticisers (bpa...

    Iron Overload Linked To Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    I posted a few recent studies that finally start to make the connection between endotoxin, iron, and neurodegenerative conditions. Endotoxin And Iron Finally Recognized As Potential Causes Of Many Diseases Endotoxin (LPS) May Be A Causative Factor In Alzheimer Disease (AD) Big Pharma is...

    Deferoxamine (desferal)-powerful iron chelator

    Anybody ever heard of this? I just looked this up after seeing they used it in a parkinsons rat study. Wikipedia: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deferoxamine Deferoxamine (also known as desferrioxamine B, desferoxamine B, DFO-B, DFOA, DFB or desferal) is a bacterial siderophore produced by...

    Cilantro for Iron Chelation

    So, even though I've had a huge success with my health I have been thinking that I have iron overload and am just maintaining my health in spite of it (I have not been able to get a doctor to test iron, even though I had thyroid tumors). I am suspicious of this because if I stop any of the...

    IP6 For Iron Chelation

    I carry too much iron, so I'm always on the lookout for ways to get rid of it. (No...I won't do leeches and probably bleeding myself is out too. :D ) I donate as often as I'm allowed. This IP6 stuff... I guess it is a form of inositol. There are claims that it really gets the iron out...

    Aspirin Chelates Iron

    Both vitamin E and aspirin have been associated in epidemiological studies with lower iron saturation, however I don't think either one is considered an iron chelator. This study says that aspirin is in fact an iron chelator. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3335633 "...Since MDA production...

    Lowering Iron (chelation) May Stop Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    Ray has written several times about the dangers of excess iron and its relation to neurodegenerative conditions. He also routinely recommends measuring ferritin and transferrin as more accurate way of assessing iron status. It seems that some people in Australia exhibit proper cognitive...

    Is Ray Peats Iron Overload Worries A Lil Extreme?

    I been listening to a lecture on iron overload from Chris Kresser which you can find here: http://chriskresser.com/iron-behaving-badly-the-role-of-iron-overload-in-metabolic-disease Although I believe he is no where near as smart as Ray Peat, he does have a good take on things and is somewhat...

    Cranberry Juice Is An Iron Chelator

    For those people trying to lower their iron levels and not being able to take aspirin or vitamin E, this may be a safer alternative. I am not sure cranberries are very Peaty, but they are probably safer in terms of causing GI bleeding than both aspirin and vitamin E...

    Tetracycline Antibiotics Are Strong Iron Chelators

    Excess iron is implicated in virtually all chronic pathologies as well as a number of acute infections. Ray has written about this and mentioned that phlebotomy is one good way to reduce iron overload. He also mentioned that coffee is another good method. However, one of these methods is...

    Chelating BPA

    Actually, this should apply to all estrogenic chemicals similar to BPA contained in plastics. Just b/c the plastic container says "BPA-free" does not mean it is not harmful. Often they have BPS (a close relative of BPA), which is even more toxic and less studied than BPA. It looks like activated...

    Adding Milk To Coffee Doesn't Impair Zn-chelating Capacity

    I wondered whether addition of milk to coffee impairs its chelating activity. While I found no studies for iron, I came across one study that found that the chelating capacity of zinc was not impaired. Guess that is good news for all the coffee+milk drinkers. Effect of Roasting on Properties of...
