    Mitochondrial dysfunction may be the cause of anemia

    Despite anemia being a pretty common condition, I still don't think medicine has a good idea what causes anemia (putting aside the more obvious reasons such as chronic bleeding and dietary iron deficiency). In one of the KMUD interviews Peat opined that in his opinion true iron deficiency...

    PUFA promote torpor / hibernation, decrease lifespan

    Not many studies on this topic, but here is one that will hopefully satisfy my critics who keep complaining that there is no evidence for the anti-metabolic, pro-hibernation effects of PUFA. Apparently, PUFA is sought after by hibernating animals (but even they consume it within very tightly...

    Mitoq 847x More Effective Than Coq10 Formulas

    I cam across a more powerful version of CoQ10 that seemed very interesting. MitoQ is able to get into the mitochondria unlike CoQ10 by using a positive charge. They make targeted formulas for heat, skin, liver, blood sugar, and general. Looks like there are lots of studies on this product. From...

    Selenium Can Be Used Instead Of Coq10 ?

    I know curezone is a joke but this was interesting http://www.curezone.org/forums/am.asp?i=1547804 "There are many reasons. First, CoQ10 is produced in the body from selenium. Second, selenium is relatively inexpensive and CoQ10 is one of the more expensive products on the market. Plus the...

    Stimulation Of Skin's Energy Metabolism Provides Multiple Benefits For Mature Human Skin

    Stimulation of skin's energy metabolism provides multiple benefits for mature human skin. - PubMed - NCBI As an organism ages, there is a decline in mitochondrial function and cellular energy balance. This decline is both accelerated by and can cause the formation of reactive oxygen species...

    CoQ10 may prevent the negative effects of endotoxin on mitochondria

    The stud was in rats and the dosage of CoQ10 was 20mg/kg 12 hours before endotoxin administration. This means the human dosage is 2.5mg/kg-3mg/kg. The interesting thing is that AFAIK Peat has said that he does not routinely recommend CoQ10 since it increases fatty acid oxidation, and elevated...
