    Ability to wake up early in the morning as a sign of high metabolism

    I was discussing with a female coworker various topics and she mentioned how she woke up at 6am that day and was very productive. We are both late 20s / early 30s age bracket. In contrast, I find it very hard to wake up at 6am, I barely can get myself to wake up at 8/9, as I work from home. And...

    Does Peating (over-time) decrease the size of your stomach by increasing the size of your brain - changing your food tolerance (fruit/starch)

    I was reading this from "The Expensive-Tissue Hypothesis: The Brain and the Digestive System in Human and Primate Evolution": I noted the following as extremely relevant : "Gut Size is highly correlated with diet, and relatively small guts are compatible only with high-quality...

    Is standing next to your car's brake lights a great way to boost metabolism on the go or in an emergency ?

    I notice i get a great boost in metabolism standing next to a car's brake lights - It's just regular red lights or is it a non-red light and the glass is tinted red ? I know the glass or plastic tends to be tinted red but i seem to get a metabolic boost from standing next to it so is the...

    Is there a significant effect on the metabolism just by being around specific people ?

    I've been noticing a couple of things lately - I notice that before peating when my health was bad - I really enjoyed being around metabolically healthy people and especially that is true today - It made me feel very comfortable - as we know from this forum anything can be anything so there must...

    Uncoupling metabolism/OXPHOS may treat inflammatory conditions

    In several of his articles and interviews, Peat mentioned that one of the reliable signs/symptoms of low metabolism is the presence of low-grade chronic inflammation. Basically, the cell is stuck into a constant (and futile) repair process as it cannot complete it properly after discovering the...

    Were males destined to die young ? Examining life expectancies in humans and mammals - males vs females

    I think by now most of us have heard about the idea that women live longer than men - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5603374/ "Among humans, women's life span is almost 8% on average longer than men's life span." "In every human population, women live longer than men, so much so...

    Cartilage/bone health depends on oxidative metabolism

    A good study that demonstrates yet another "structural" aspect of health - the strength and growth or our cartilage/bones - is heavily dependent on proper mitochondrial function. As such, even minor disruptions of oxidative metabolism can lead to long-term deformations in bone/cartilage, which...

    Vitamin B1 and/or biotin may treat Huntington Disease (HD)

    As some of my own studies with cancer recently demonstrated, vitamins are no laughing matter when it comes to their ability to treat very serious conditions. This seems to be especially true in regards to the B vitamins, which are required co-factors for most of the metabolic reactions inside...

    If you want to look like a supermodel (and why you should want to look like a supermodel) - a case for head insulation 24/7

    As we all know by now - low thyroid causes mouth breathing and mouth breathing is a horror show on the maxilla. People say to keep your mouth closed, lips sealed, and tongue glued to the roof of the mouth - hence why the method of mewing has been popularized in recent years. In this thread I...

    Alzheimer's patients have lower metabolic rate and higher fatty acid oxidation

    Just a quick post in regards to a study that found the drug donepezil - commonly used to "treat" Alzheimer's Disease (AD) - may improve mitochondrial function in muscles. While the findings of the study in regards to donepezil are debatable and not particularly interesting, buried inside the...

    Human study - vitamin B1 safe & effective for preventing & treating Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    A remarkable study, that for some reason is not being covered by mainstream media. Considering 99% of the clinical trials for AD since 2000 have completely failed, this study should be front-page news for most mainstream outlets. I suspect mainstream media, being literally owned by the same...

    Metabolically, children are different species compared to adults

    A great study, which once again puts metabolism in the spotlight. Many studies have tried to discover the main biological differences between children and adults and so far none of them have discovered a "smoking gun". At the same time, multiple studies have demonstrated that children are much...

    Mice treated with TSLP cytokine lose weight by ‘sweating’ fat

    Another nail in CICO coffin: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/07/210729143412.htm Treating obese mice with the cytokine known as TSLP led to significant abdominal fat and weight loss compared to controls, according to new research published Thursday in Science from researchers in the...

    Endotoxin antagonists appear to slow metabolism.

    Through a ton of self experimentation I've found out that in order to increase metabolism on a high calorie diet all TLR4(endotoxin) inhibitors should be greatly reduced. And it does not really matter which ones exactly are currently saturating endotoxin receptors as antagonists, whether its...

    Damaged mitochondria may cause 90%+ of Parkinson Disease (PD) cases

    More evidence that yet another "incurable" condition is little more than energy deficit (due to mitochondrial dysfunction) in disguise. In this case the mitochondrial dysfunction was caused by accumulation of mitochondrial debris inside the cell, which has been repeatedly shown by other studies...

    Aging is an energy deficiency problem, taking cardiolipin may reverse it

    Yet another study demonstrating that "aging" is nothing but a phenotype characterizing an organism with declining energy production. Since most of the cellular energy is produced in the mitochondria, another way of stating the same is that aging (and any specific disease for that matter) is a...

    Loss of mitochondrial function (OXPHOS) induces de-differentiation (cancer)

    The study only focuses on the lymphatic system and its cells, but the principle is general and has been observed in other organ/tissue cells. The most obvious example is cancer - no matter which organ it occurs in, the tumor is composed of de-differentiated cells not unlike the stem cells from...

    Muscle weakness / wasting linked to poor mitochondrial function

    A study that once again illustrates the central principle of bioenergetics - structure and function cannot be separated. They are interdependent at every level. In this specific case, the "structural" pathology is muscle weakness and wasting (sarcopenia, cachexia, etc). Most doctors, when...

    DHEA causes fat-loss and improved glucose metabolism in humans

    Another study corroborating the role of DHEA as one of the "youth" hormones. A recent study already demonstrated that DHEA can reverse aging of the human immune system, which usually goes hand in hand with lower cortisol and improved metabolism. The proven anti-cortisol effects of DHEA are...
