    Vitamin D is anti-catabolic / anabolic, protects liver from cortisol injury

    In a recent post of mine I discussed the effects of cortisol on various aminotransferases (especially TAT), their role as biomarkers of catabolism, and how inhibitors of said aminotransferases have a potent anti-catabolic / anabolic effects. In that same post, I also described how cortisol (a...

    Is it normal to get very pale stools from drinking lots of milk?

    I have consumed dairy regularly over the years, so it is nothing new for my body, but I never thought to ask if the pale stools were normal. I just assumed that it was, but so much is off about my digestion, so I figured I'd come here to ask. I get VERY pale stools from milk (whole or skim)...

    Eating Liver Causing Allergic Reaction?

    For some reason whenever I take liver capsules I get an allergic like reaction in the form of excess saliva build up. It is really debilitating. The liver capsules themselves do not cause a reaction but for some reason whenever I eat anything for the rest of the day I'm coughing and clearing...

    A neat little study, which demonstrates once again the crucial role of energy and optimal redox status in a public health issue that has now reached catastrophic proportions.

    Why Does Fresh Liver Taste So Good But Frozen Liver So Meh?

    Fresh beef liver is one of the most delicious foods I know. But when I freeze it, even just a few days, and pull it out and cook it, it doesn't taste the same at all. Much worse sadly. Is it the glycogen that's being lost?

On the worse nights I fall asleep for about an hour or even less and then I’m awake the rest of the night.

    Dehydrated VS Freeze Dried Liver

    I wondered if anyone has any more info on dehydrating liver to make desiccated liver capsules. It’s fairly inexpensive to get hold of a dehydrator compared to spending lots on a freeze dryer. I’ve read quite a bit that suggests that dehydrating liver isn’t that good. Any opinions on this? Thank you

    Anti-Peat Liver And Oysters Aren't Health Foods?

    I'll quickly say here that in the grand scope of the last 1-2 years, there was a time where I received great energetic benefit from consuming liver and oysters. During a short time of a few weeks I'd venture to say that I even over-consumed them in an attempt to load up on these dietary elements...

    Supplementation With (long Chain) Saturated Fats Protects Liver From Alcohol

    As many of my readers already know, there are a number of human studies, going back to at least the 1960s, demonstrating that supplementation with saturated fats (SFA) protects the liver from damage induced by alcohol. I fact, supplementation with SFA not only prevents alcohol-induced liver...

    Daily Aspirin Reduces By 37% Risk Of Fatty Liver Progressing Into Cirrhosis

    Another great study about aspirin. What I particularly like about this study is that one of the authors is calling aspirin "a promising anti-fibrotic strategy for NAFLD". This is the first time I have heard a doctor refer to aspirin as anti-fibrotic chemical. Peat mentioned aspirin as one of the...

    All Gut Bacteria Dangerous, Its Endotoxin Drives Liver Cancer; Antibiotics Cure

    As Peat has written many times, there is truly no such thing as “beneficial” gut bacteria as long as they are capable of producing endotoxin (LPS). And since most bacterial species known to colonize the gut can produce LPS when exposed to undigested food or mechanical stimulation (stretching or...
