    Biotin Reduces Ammonia Levels In Brain And Blood

    Rat study, but should be applicable to humans as well. Human equivalent dosage is about 20mg of biotin per day, which may seem very high to some.

    Melanoma Needs Glutamine To Grow And Dies Without It

    In support of Ray's opinion on amino acids like glutamine and arginine fueling cancer growth, this study found that melanoma cancer needs glutamine for its growth and without a steady supply of glutamine the cancer dies. So, glutamine and arginine restriction / depletion seem to be viable...
