    Delirium (and Dementia/AD) Is Caused By Inability To Oxidize Glucose

    Ray has written about the metabolic origins of Alzheimer disease (AD) and I posted quite a few studies on the links between AD and PUFA metabolites as well as insulin resistance in the brain. I even mentioned on one of Danny Roddy's shows that there is a proposal by NIH to reclassify AD as...

    Vitamin B2 (FAD) (not Light) May Control The Circadian Clock

    Hopefully this won't spur another war on words as the previous discussion on the circadian clock. This study found that the coenzyme FAD (a derivative of riboflavin) control the circadian clock in a light-independent manner. To make the matters even more "metabolic" so to speak, the levels of...

    Glucose Deprivation In The Brain Is A Causative Factor In Alzheimer's Dieases (AD)

    As the study says, whether lower glucose levels in the brain were the consequence or cause of AD was considered unknown until recently. This is one of the studies that established a causal link between lower blood glucose levels in the brain and the development AD. I wonder if we are going to...

    Sugar (glucose) Enhances, Not Depletes, Self-control

    If you Google for "sugar self-control" you will see thousands of news articles and blog posts about how sugar consumption depletes our limited resource called self-control. This study found the exact opposite, sugar enhances self-control by signalling environmental richness and (dare I say) good...

    Pregnenolone For Blood Sugar Control

    It was recently discovered that the so-called TRM3 "receptors" in the pancreatic beta cells can be activated by pregnenolone sulfate (PS) at relatively low concentrations and result in insulin release. This makes pregnenolone a potential tool for keeping blood sugar levels normal and can also...

    Cancer And Glucose (sugar)

    The following is from the MAF & ME facebook group by a lady who is cancer researcher and advocate of Gcmaf . The purpose of this post is to present an example anti-sugar side of the debate and ask the Forum members to present their scientific views on the topic. The question for the Forum is...

    [fructose Vs. Glucose In Total Parenteral Nutrition In Critically Ill Patients].

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8678268 Abstract Parenteral nutrition required following surgery or injury should not only meet post-aggression caloric requirements but also match the specific metabolic needs so as not to worsen the metabolic disruptions already present in this situation...

    Plasticisers (bpa, Dehp) Boost Pufa, Estrogen, Cortisol & Block Glucose Oxidation

    While the FDA continues to claim that BPA and other plastic derivatives are harmless since no known mechanism exists to explain their effects, the mechanisms of action have been quite well known for decades. BPA specifically is an estrogen "receptor" agonist more potent than estradiol, AND also...

    Post-Exercise Muscle Glycogen Synthesis

    Postexercise muscle glycogen synthesis with combined glucose and fructose ingestion. "Glucose and glucose/fructose (2:1 ratio) solutions, ingested at a rate of 90 g x h(-1), are equally effective at restoring muscle glycogen in exercised muscles during the recovery from exhaustive exercise."...

    Glucose has the same effect on the brain as glycine

    Related to the other study on glucose I posted minutes ago. This study shows that just like glycine, taurine, and beta alanine glucose is a glycine "receptor" agonist. As such, it has an inhibitory effect on the brain and spinal cord and likely has similar effects to glycine on variety of...

    Using Vitamins (biotin) For Improving Glucose Control

    Given the number of threads on the forum from people experiencing reduced insulin sensitivity or weight gain on Peatarian diet I thought that I post some threads on how these conditions can be ameliorated by specific substances that Peat has written about. This thread is about vitamin B7...

    RP Says Glucose Helps T4 To T3, Then Why Fructose?

    I am reading this statement below i got from a site: Did you know that your liver stores sugar (called glycogen), and that you NEED a steady flow of sugar to keep glycogen stores topped off? Without a healthy storage of glycogen, your liver won’t convert thyroid hormone T4 (inactive) to T3...
