    Lowered Cholesterol In EFAD, Good Or Bad?

    "Cholesterol synthesis appears to be substantially decreased in livers of EFA deficient rats, whether deficiency is produced by a fat-free diet or a diet which contains 30% hydrogenated coconut oil. Nevertheless, cholesterol collects in the liver, primarily as cholesterol esters..." I wonder if...

    DeFibron - Liquid Methylated SFA For Lab/R&D

    Ever since I read in one of Ray's articles about the ability of saturated fat to reverse even advanced liver fibrosis (cirrhosis) I have been researching the effects of various saturated fatty acids on a number of organs and tissues. A number of studies have been posted on the forum indicating...

    EFAD Symptoms Most Probably Caused By A Biotin Deficiency

    There is old studies reporting animals on a fat free diet could get symptom free when they include liver in their feed , I think that is because it has biotin in much higher level than any other food. Mechanism of blocked lipogenesis induced in rats by feeding extremely hydrogenated fat | AJP...

    DHEA (and Other Androgens) Deplete EFA (PUFA) And Increase SFA

    A human study and as such very relevant. The dose of DHEA used was high (200mg), but androgens derived from DHEA have the same (and even more potent) effects in much lower doses, so low-dose DHEA should have similar (if not even better) effect. Yet another indication that androgens are...

    EFA Deficiency Achievable In 2 Weeks On Fat Free Diet

    Human studies on diet of 80% glucose and 20% protein. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC436563/ "...In Study I, eight men were given fat-free, eucaloric diets containing 80% of calories as glucose and 20% as amino acid hydrolysates by a constant drip over a 24-h period. The diets...

    Dietary Fat Intake Below 15% Depletes PUFA

    A human study. Obviously, a lower fat intake will increase PUFA depletion. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1345066/ "...No patient was EFA deficient before the onset of TPN. EFA deficiency was prevented when at least 3.2% of total calories were given as intravenous fat or at least...
