    Why Omega 3 should be avoided and what to use/do instead

    Since there are so many discussions and confusion on this forum around omega 3s, I thought I do a deep dive and write this article. If there are so many studies showing that it's good and has so many benefits, how can it be bad...

    Depending on format, Peat talk is -11:11 remaining on the Spotify embed, or 1:03:38-1:08:06 on apple podcast -. I’m sure many of you know and have at least entertained the ideas of Jack Kruse’s work since they share some ideas with Ray Peat and both put mitochondrial energy at the forefront. In...

    Anti-Peat Peat Wrong On DHA

    On another thread here on the forum magnesiumania said, “Peat is wrong about DHA and dont even know what metabolites DHA make. Only problem with retinol is circadian mismatches. When you live in blue lights vit A cant bind to its opsins and free retinol destroy photoreceptors.” My question to...

    Pregnancy, Omega-3/DHA/Fish Oil, Child Development

    Hello, Disclaimer: I discovered this forum a few years back, but was unable to comprehend it. However, I have been keeping my PUFA's intake minimal. Now my wife is pregnant and back again for advice! I know I still have much reading to do in regards to RP, but because my wife is now pregnant...

    PUFA Enhance Glucocorticoid (cortisol) Signalling

    I posted some studied in the past on the estrogenic and pro-cortisol effects of PUFA, as well as the pro-androgen effects of SFA. One of those studies showed that PUFA increases cortisol synthesis even in the absence of ACTH, which suggests that they may have pituitary hormonal-like effects...

    PUFA Cause Fatal Swelling Seen In Brain Infections; SFA Are Harmless

    Conditions like meningitis and brain abscess are on the rise and there is currently no explanation why. The fatality of such conditions is usually not due to the infection itself but due to the swelling of the brain, which results in compression of the brainstem and often herniation, both of...

    PUFA Is Directly Catabolic (without Cortisol/estrogen), SFA Is Anabolic

    I posted a few studies about PUFA potentiating the stress response and cortisol synthesis, even without the typical elevations of ACTH present in organic stress reactions. Saturated fats block that pro-stress effects of PUFA...

    Another Study Links PUFA To Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    I posted some studies a few months ago, which showed that PUFA metabolites are elevated in patients with AD, and that blocking PUFA metabolism can reverse the pathology (in an animal model). Increased Pufa Oxidation May Be Biomarker For Alzheimers Blocking PUFA Metabolism May Reverse Alzheimer...

    Omega-3 (DHA, EPA) Degrades The Androgen Receptor

    One of the reasons the medical industry continues to promotes the use of fish oils is that in animal studies it was shown to shrink the prostate. The mechanism was never fully elucidated, but I suspected it is probably not a good one. This study shows that omega-3 fatty acids are anti-androgenic...

    Dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (dppc) Protects From Pufa Cytotoxicity

    This study shows just how "good" PUFA is for us. Human cells treat PUFA as a toxin and when faced with a PUFA overload, the cells ramp up production of the saturated DPPC as a defensive mechanism. Another strong point for the study was that it used EPA and DHA to achieve the PUFA overload, so...
