    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.

    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...

    Glycine Protects From Iron Toxicity In The Liver

    The optimal approach would be to keep iron stores on the low end of normal but for the people who already have confirmed iron overload, this study may offer some help. Glycine seems to protect from the toxicity of iron, which is mainly manifested in the liver (and sometimes brain). Iron induces...
