• tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    Rest in Paradise, Raymond Peat  October 12, 1936 - November 24 2022

    Gut bacteria overgrowth drives (cocaine) addiction; glycine can reverse it

    Yet another study highlighting the importance of the microbiome for our health, and suggesting again that there may be no such thing as truly beneficial bacteria. Any bacteria capable of colonizing our GI tract seems to be capable of causing pathology if it is allowed to proliferate without...

    Exposure to even ultra-low dose of RoundUp causes kidney/liver damage

    So much for the official statement by Monsanto that RoundUp (glyphosate) is so safe that a person can drink a glass full of it and there would be no ill effects. They even sent their lawyer to a famous TV show to make the same claims, but that lawyer became berserk when the show host poured him...

    The glycine deportation system and its pharmacological consequences

    Abstract The glycine deportation system is an essential component of glycine catabolism in man whereby 400 to 800 mg glycine per day are deported into urine as hippuric acid. The molecular escort for this deportation is benzoic acid, which derives from the diet and from gut microbiota metabolism...

    Glycine side effects. Could someone explain?

    After experimenting with glycine last night (1g in OJ) I've heard a LOUD screaming in my ear while I was sleeping. Woke me up and scared the sh*tout of me xd Knew it was "in my head" because my extremely alert dog was sleeping. I also woke up with extremely dry mouth, grogginess and fatigue...

    Vivid dreams from Glycine - Good or Bad?

    Been taking Glycine pure powder before bed, as it was recommended on Twitter for sleep quality / stress reduction, and it's giving me vivid dreams. And I was wondering if it's a good sign of the brain / mind becoming more creative. Does it interfere with deep sleep, because I feel myself...

    Glycine can prevent and fight virus invasiveness by reinforcing the extracellular matrix

    Highlights • The extracellular matrix is a physical barrier against infectious agents. • Collagen (high glycine content) is the main protein of the extracellular matrix. • Glycine is an essential amino acid as previously demonstrated. • Glycine deficiency causes a weak mechanical system...

    Glycine (and leucine) can treat fatty liver (NAFLD and NASH)

    A great new study that demonstrates the strong protective effects of glycine, alone or in combination with leucine, on preventing/treating various forms of fatty liver disease, as well as the obesity that often accompanies these conditions. One of the strong points of the study is that it also...

    Glycine has a universal anti-viral effect

    While the study below does not go as far as to say that glycine would be an appropriate intervention for the current COVID-19 pandemic, it does describe an anti-viral mechanism for glycine that is (at least in theory) applicable to ALL viruses. Namely, glycine prevents for formation of capsids...

    Glycine Reduces NAFLD by modulating fatty acid oxidation, glutathione synthesis, and the gut microbiome - 2020

    Amino acids alleviate liver disease Glycine is known to be reduced in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), diseases with no approved treatments. Rom et al. found that glycine biosynthetic genes showed reduced expression in humans and...

    Aspirin + K2 + Glycine Poor Reaction; Anybody Else?

    Hey folks, This morning I took a mixture of ~3g glycine powder, 90 ug K2 (MK7), and 650 mg typical otc aspirin. About an hour later, my eyes became bloodshot, followed by lightheadedness and reddened skin. Probably a long shot, but has anyone tried this combo and had anything near these...

    Aging Likely Caused By Decreased Respiration / Metabolism, Not Genetic Mutations

    It looks like after a century of utter idiotism in biology and medicine, those two disciplines may finally be getting on the right course. Despite the fact that the "rate of living" theory is still the dominant theory of aging in the halls of academia, a new generation of scientists is emerging...

    Insects Can Feel Both Acute And Chronic Pain, Can Even Develop Insect-PTSD

    Probably not many forum users know it, but to this day surgery on babies or other painful procedures is often performed without anesthesia. The rationale for this horrific torture is that the nervous system of babies is not developed yet, so they don't feel pain. It takes a special kind of...

    Cosmic Radiation Can Create Life-building Blocks From Ammonia & CO2

    Peat mentioned this in a few of his articles and the process of formation of basic amino acids from simpler chemicals is well-known. But up until now the "trigger" or "spark" of this process was not known. The study below shows that low-energy electrons from cosmic radiation can serve as that...

    Glycine May Treat Lung, Brain And Other Cancers

    Lung and brain (glioblastoma) cancer are among the deadliest. The 5 year survival rates of both are below 20%. So, any progress in treating those cancer types would be a huge leap forward for oncology. As the study says, there is a growing realization that cancers are highly metabolically...
