    Pre-natal Viagra Use Causes Offspring Hypertension And Maternal Diabesity

    The study looks weird at first glance - why would pregnant women take Viagra? After all, it is a drug initially developed for treating hypertension and erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. Well, the same misguided idea of using nitric oxide (NO) promoting drugs like Viagra to induce vasodilation...

    Long Work Hours (stress) At The Office Cause Hypertension And CVD

    Many of my readers surely are familiar with the saying "work hard, play hard". This mantra is at the core of the psychotic work culture of most "developed" countries and despite the assurances of doctors and public health officials that bad health is largely due to "bad luck" (e.g. genes) the...

    Natural Progesterone (but Not Synthetic Progestins) Has Potent Anti-hypertensive Effects

    As many readers already know, synthetic estrogens and progestins currently dominate the market for female reproductive health. These chemicals are in everything from birth control pills, to drugs for "treating" endometriosis, to drugs for menopausal symptoms, to treating neurodegenerative...

    Niacinamide Lowers BP, May Reverse CVD And Reduce Heart Attack Risk By 25%

    This is a human study, so the findings are that much more relevant even though they probably do not come as a surprise to users of this forum. The duration of the study was just 6 weeks and the dose was 500mg nicotinamide riboside (NR) twice a day (for a total of 1,000mg). There were no side...

    Statins May Exert Beneficial Effects Through A Pathway Other Than It's Cholesterol Lowering Action

    Was surprised when saw a study showing statins have positive effects on bones, did a bit of searching and it turned out that it has some positive action,generally, through inhibiting rho kinase, which also is protective against heart disease. Im not promoting statin use at all(for obvious...

    Many Hypertension Diagnoses Are Wrong And Due To People Being Rushed

    I have long suspected that the so-called "epidemic" of hypertension in the Western world is overblown. Every time I have gone to see my doctor I felt like the visits were always rushed and the ambulatory measures like temperature, blood pressure (BP), weight, height, oxygenation, etc were taken...

    Another "obesity Paradox" - It Lowers Mortality In Patients With Atrial Fibrillation

    I hope this is not taken as a call to get obese. I am posting it simply as an example that obesity may be a protective mechanism once a disease is already established. As such, it should not be viewed always in a negative light but as a possible result of an endocrine disorder, which likely...

    SSRI During Pregnancy Causes Cognitive Dysfunction (autism) In Offspring

    I just posted a study that found a link between stress and elevated serotonin levels in pregnant women, which subsequently was tied to development of autism in the offspring. Stress Activates A Serotonin Gene In Pregnant Women And That Causes Autism Now, in agreement with that study a new one...

    Chronic Caffeine Intake Lowers Blood Pressure

    This is yet another "counterintuitive" study given the commonly recited dogma by medical professionals that caffeine will increase your blood pressure and in the long run contribute to CVD risk. As you can see, long term caffeine intake actually lowers systolic blood pressure, especially in...

    Salt Increases Adrenaline Study

    Excess salt stimulates production of adrenalin and causes hypertension This study is saying that salt doesn't increase blood pressure due to increased blood volume, but actually by increasing adrenaline which constricts capillaries. This doesn't make sense to me. This is the only study I...

    The Anti-cortisol Effects Of Niacinamide

    This is yet another confirmation of my suspicion that sedative substances lower cortisol levels. Niacinamide is officially recognized as a GABA-A agonist, but apparently this is not the major reason behind its effect on cortisol. The enzyme that de-activates cortisol - 11b-HSD2 - is apparently...

    Caffeine Reverses Stress, Insulin Resistance, Hypertension

    I think should clarify some misconceptions about caffeine. Many people are experiencing a stress response to caffeine, and the more studies I see and the more I experiment with friends/family the more I get convinced that the stress response is: 1. Temporary (last no more than 4 days as shown...
