    Vitamin E 100-fold more potent than remdesivir for SARS-CoV-2 / coronaviruses

    A great study that demonstrates once again the versatility of vitamin E, not only as a PUFA peroxidation blocker (a better term than "antioxidant", as the latter actually implies a metabolic inhibitor), but also as a substance with direct antiviral effects. Several studies came out over the last...

    Aspirin may prevent and treat COVID-19

    I may get banned from social media for making a post with such a title, but I am simply reporting on what the study discovered. Namely, even a low-dose aspirin used mostly for ischemic attack (heart or brain) prevention reduced risks of SARS-CoV-2 infection by almost 30%, while also shortening...

    The Tetracyclines Protect Against Sepsis Independently Of Their Antibiotics Effects

    A remarkable study, which demonstrates that not all antibiotics have been created equal. Namely, the tetracycline family of antibiotics is strikingly protective against lethality from sepsis, and that protection is completely separate from their antibiotics effects. For example, the study...

    Magnesium, Vitamin D, B12 Combo Strikingly Therapeutic For COVID-19

    It is always good to see proof that medicine has not completely lost its mind by blindly chasing only the latest and greatest discovery in pharma antiviral drugs. The preventive and therapeutic effects of magnesium on viral diseases have been known for decades and has prompted the health...

    Raising NAD Levels May Be Therapeutic For COVID-19

    A rather timely study, which demonstrates once again the crucial role energy plays even in "non-metabolic" diseases such as viral infections. At this point, even mainstream medicine admits that every function of the organism requires energy, so it would be plausible to expect an organism with...

    Pregnenolone (P5) - A New Osteoporosis Drug

    About a month ago, I made a post in regards to aspirin becoming a new treatment for osteoporosis. Several months ago, I made another post about an in-vitro study demonstrating powerful anabolic effects of pregnenolone (P5) on bones. Apparently, the protective effects of P5 on bone health are...

    Niacinamide May Treat Fibrotic Eye Disease And Prevent Vision Loss

    A great new study that demonstrated nicotinamide (NAM) may also have anti-fibrotic effects in addition to its positive effects on maintaining favorable NAD/NADH ratio and redox balance. The mechanism of action of NAM was inhibition of the TGF-β pathway and overall reduction of inflammation. This...

    Vitamin K May Help Reduce Arterial Stiffness & Improve Blood Pressure

    For those of my readers who don't know, vitamin K is a prescription drug in many countries for treating/preventing osteoporosis, blood pressure, liver disease, neurological disorders, cancer, etc. Japan is where this remarkable substance enjoys perhaps the most prestige as an actual drug for...

    Vitamin E, Anabolic / Catatoxic Steroids, Egg Yolks Stop Soft Tissue Calcification And (maybe) Even

    A great series of studies performed in the 1960s, with Hans Selye spearheading most of the investigations. It is amazing how much was known about human disease and aging, and how much of that knowledge has been so thoroughly forgotten to the point that doctors nowadays have never even heard of...

    Aspirin Safe And Effective For Prevention AND Treatment Of Migraine

    A human study, which dispels the myths that migraine is yet another "mysterious" disease with an unknown cause and no effective treatment. Considering the role of serotonin in migraines, it adds to the evidence that aspirin is a potent anti-serotonin agent in higher doses. The good news is that...

    DHEA-S Completely Prevents Breast Cancer Metastasis Due To Estrogen

    A great new study that debunks several myths related to DHEA. One of those myths is that when used in physiological doses DHEA can increase risk of estrogen-positive cancers, especially breast cancer. Another myth is that declining DHEA levels seen with advancing age are simply a consequence of...

    Inhibiting Estrogen Synthesis May Treat / Prevent Ectopic Pregnancy

    I just made a post about the role of estrogen in male infertility, which matches perfectly the evidence about estrogen's role as a metabolic inhibitor, and an agent that causes atrophy in both male and female gonads. Male Fertility Depends On Intensity Of (sperm) Metabolism Now, a new study...

    Aspirin May Treat Brain Aneurysms

    Another huge win for aspirin, not only because of the condition's lethality, but because there is currently no treatment for it. While the study did not last long enough to make such claims, given the potent inhibitory effect on aneurysm growth I would not be surprised if aspirin actually makes...

    Vitamin E Restores Cardiac Health After Heart Attack

    A great study that gives vitamin E a much deserved exposure in mainstream media. A few years ago, vitamin E was lambasted by the press for failing to prevent prostate cancer and heart attacks. Yet, upon a more careful look, it quickly becomes evident that those trials were handicapped from the...

    Aspirin Now Officially Recommended For (colon) Cancer Prevention

    It is only in the UK for now, but given how intertwined the health systems of most Western countries are I suspect it will soon spread to other health systems. Also, while the popular press article claims that the recommendation will only be for people with a specific genetic condition, the NHS...

    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...

    Vitamin E Reduces Risks Of Cataracts By More Than 50%

    Quite a few people have been asking on the forum and via email about interventions for age-related cataracts. Here are some links below. The type of vitamin E used in all studies was alpha-tocopherol and the dose varied from 12mg/day all the way up to HED of 15mg/kg daily for the rodent model...

    Endotoxin Causes Cachexia In Cancer; How Statin Drugs Really Work

    The title of the post is a bit strange but it is pretty much what the study below found. Just like the SSRI drugs, the mechanism of action of statins is (officially) not really known. The official version for the antidepressant effects of SSRI drugs was that they increase intracellular levels of...

    Niacinamide Can Treat Alcoholic Liver Disease

    As many forum users have probably heard on the news, alcohol abuse is now a leading cause of death in young people under 35. It is projected to soon surpass drug overdose as a cause of death in this demographic. Millennials are dying of alcohol-related liver disease at increasing rates The...

    Aspirin May Prevent / Reduce HIV Infection In Humans

    A few years ago, I posted some studies showing that endotoxin is key in the development of AIDS. Those studies also found that without endotoxin, the HIV poses little risk to (healthy) organisms...
