    how do you oxidize vitamin C safely?

    Dr. Peat in his recent Radio One interview with Patrick Timpone said more clearly than I've heard him say, how vitamin C is not good because it is a reductant. He said that oxidized C in the body is safe. Is there a simple way to oxidize ascorbic acid and then consume it? I read that copper can...

    Low, Not High, Metabolism Creates Oxidative Stress

    A hugely popular tenet of the "rate of living" theory is that the higher the metabolic rate the more reactive oxygen species (ROS) an organism produces. ROS elevation has already been implicated in a host of chronic disease including diabetes, CVD, cancer, neurological conditions and even mental...

    Increased Fatty Acid Synthesis (FAS) Is Simply A Sign Of Oxygen Deficiency / Low Metabolism

    Just a quick post on a study that provides insight as to how increased fatty acid oxidation (FAO) can "paradoxically" result in increased FAS as well, thus leading to a vicious cycle most commonly seen in diabetes and cancer. One of my recent posts discussed a much more recent study that...

    SFA / MUFA Are Preferentially Oxidized, While PUFA Are Stored/accumulated

    Just a quick post in response to some of the hate mail I keep getting on a daily basis in regards to the body's discriminatory treatment of various fat types. According to various proponents of keto diets, fasting, etc the organism has no preference for one type of fat or another in terms of...

    Increased Fat Oxidation (FAO) Does Not Lead To Weight / Fat Loss

    The study below directly contradicts a mantra commonly repeated in nutrition circles - restrict glucose and increase fat oxidation in order to lose body fat. In fact, this idea is so ingrained into the minds of most people that I often get hate mail from people all over the world angrily...

    Pyrucet - Liquid (ethyl) Pyruvate/Aceatoacetate Mix

    As many forum users know, I have been interested in the Randle Cycle (glucose/fat competition for oxidation) for quite some time. The topic of limiting fatty acid oxidation (FAO) and promoting glucose oxidation is pretty central to the metabolic theory of health. Peat has written many times on...

    High Metabolism And/Or Progesterone Can Regrow Amputated Limbs

    Another great example of "synchronicity" (Synchronicity - Wikipedia) happened today. Two separate but related studies, with similar organisms, popped up today in my mailbox. One of them (at UCDavis) shows that the redox status in favor of oxidation, and thus high reactive oxygen species (ROS)...

    Low Dose DHEA Powerfully Shifts The Redox Status Towards Oxidation

    A great study, which shows that low-dose DHEA in the range discussed here on the forum (about 15mg daily) not only completely reversed the reductive stress seen in very old mammals but put the aging animals in an even more oxidized state than their very young counterparts. This study matches...

    The Warburg "effect" Is, In Fact, A Direct Cause Of Cancer

    This is yet another recent study showing that medicine may finally be getting on the right track. Similar to the human study with doxycycline and breast cancer I just posted, confirms again what has been known and fraudulently suppressed for almost a century. Namely, the Warburg "effect" is as...

    Depression Is A Systemic Disease Linked To Pufa Oxidation

    This study is very important, but unfortunately politics once again has limited the way it is being interpreted. The first major point of the study is that depression is not a local (neurological) but rather a systemic condition. The second major point is that depression symptoms were linked to...
