    Iron Fortification

    Can we talk about Fe really fast? Let me preface this with saying I don’t think fortified and/or processed foods should make up ones daily diet (baking desserts, etc are fairly straight forward). However, Masterjohn has gone to great lengths telling people to eat a carnivore only meal when...

    Iron supplementation may not cure anemia, unless nutrition is also improved

    As many of my readers know, Peat is against supplementing with isolated iron. Aside from the well-known toxicity risks (e.g. liver damage) multiple studies have shown that in a good portion of the people treated with oral iron supplements, anemia either does not resolve or rapidly returns upon...

    ADHD and copper toxicity

    The puzzle begins to take shape. As I wrote in the thread,High salt intake caused metabolic acidosis, I assume that ADHD may be a simple dopamine deficiency. As you can see from the diagram below, vitamin B6 is essential for the synthesis of dopamine. Haidut previously published a study in...

    Alcohol Brain Damage Due To Iron Accumulation; Vitamin B1 To The Rescue

    Chronic alcohol abuse is highly detrimental to health and especially to the brain. Alcohol puts the body in a reductive state and depletes vitamin B1 (thiamine) stores. If the B1 deficiency becomes severe enough it manifests through what is clinically known as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS)...

    Vitamin C Helps Covid-19 Infected Patients By Regulating Iron?

    I wonder if the mechanism by which vitamin C helps Covid-19 infected patients is by regulating iron in the body, reducing ferritin, and thus preventing lipid peroxidation. Hemoglobin, myoglobin and heme compounds can accelerate lipid peroxidation by at least two different mechanisms: the heme...
