    Endotoxin (LPS) causes rheumatoid arthritis...and COVID-19

    A great new study, which is perhaps the first to directly point the finger at endotoxin as perhaps the main cause of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA is an "autoimmune" condition and not only shares symptoms with other similar conditions such as Lupus, psoriasis, MS, etc, but now all of them are...

    Oral spore-based probiotic supplementation was associated with 42% reduction of post-meal dietary endotoxin

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/28868181/ AIM To determine if 30-d of oral spore-based probiotic supplementation could reduce dietary endotoxemia. METHODS Apparently healthy men and women (n = 75) were screened for post-prandial dietary endotoxemia. Subjects whose serum endotoxin concentration...

    Theanine Ameliorates Neuroinflammation And Protects Against Endotoxin-Induced Inflammation and Acute Liver Injury

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29969892/ Theanine, a unique bioactive constituent from tea ( Camellia sinensis) leaves, is widely used as a functional ingredient and dietary supplement. To evaluate the anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective effects of theanine and its molecular mechanism, the...

    Endotoxin (LPS) as a cause of liver disease, obesity and diabetes

    The first article below is actually about praising fermented foods, which I don't really agree with. So, I am posting it mostly because of the quote on endotoxin/LPS, which is a very rare finding in published medical literature since medicine does not recognize chronic, low-grade endotoxemia as...

    Blocking the endotoxin receptor (TLR4) may prevent / treat hearing loss

    I did a post a few months ago on the connection between tinnitus and serotonin - i.e. using anti-serotonin drugs may treat tinnitus. Since tinnitus is almost always a precursor state to hearing loss (and eventually deafness), the two conditions obviously go hand-in-hand and are likely caused by...

    Endotoxin (LPS) may be the cause of fatal lung damage in COVID-19

    Yet another study, which demonstrates that there is virtually no disease (acute of chronic, infections or not) where the infamous LPS does not play a causative role. As it turns out, the often fatal inflammatory reaction (cytokine storm) that usually kills patients with COVID-19 in ICU, is...

    Silica, present in most supplements/food, activates the endotoxin receptor (TLR4)

    Many of my readers know about the health risks of silica - a substance doctors and pundits call completely "benign, present in virtually all commercially sold dietary supplements and also in most commercially sold food (even organic ones!). The most commonly used form commercially is silicon...

    How to protect yourself against exercise-induced endotoxin absorption

    Endotoxin can significantly negatively affect your health, from chronic low-grade inflammation, joint degeneration, organ inflammation and dysfunction, brain degeneration, insulin resistance, etc. Most people know that gut dysbiosis can increase endotoxin production and absorption into the body...

    L. plantarum protects testicles & lowers inflammation/endotoxin

    It is well known that phtalates used in plastics are endocrine disruptors and damage testicular tissue. This study is showing that Lactobacillus plantarum (LP) alleviates testicular damage, increases testosterone back to normal levels, lowers inflammatory mediators like TNF-a, IL-1b and IL-6 and...

    B. Coagulans decreases endotoxin , liver fibrosis and serotonin

    B. Coagulans , a spore forming bacteria, few people proably have heard of . In my opinion it's one of the best probiotics and bacteria strains available. It decreases endotoxin ,liver fibrosis inflammation, boosts a very healthy bacterium called F. Prausnitzii, which in turn lowers serotonin...

    Endotoxin (LPS) as a cause of systemic inflammation seen in obesity

    Yet another study implicating the great villain of systemic health - endotoxin / LPS. It is well-known that most people with obesity have high levels of inflammatory biomarkers both in their tissues and bloodstream. The study below demonstrates that the inflammation seen in adipose tissue of...

    Endotoxin behind the mortality of Black Death and 1918 Flu pandemics

    As many of my readers know, many/most people dying from COVID-19 develop either sepsis and/or respiratory failure. Endotoxin (LPS) is now a known cause behind both of these conditions, as a virus by itself has no known mechanism of causing a cytokine storm. As much as I revile the term...

    Coconut oil for lowering blood sugar, insulin requirements, inflammation and appetite

    This case report showed that coconut oil supplementation reduced this man's insulin requirements (he's a type 2 diabetic by was given insulin as well) dramatically. And when we did use insulin at his normal dose, he often experienced hypoglycemia. The shows that coconut either improves glucose...
