    Pregnenolone (P5) May Be Ergogenic And Helps Recovery From Exercise

    Take this study with a grain of salt simply because the only link to it is from a scientific conference, which means the study is not yet published in peer-reviewed journals. Yet, the results it reports are quite interesting. Namely, a single 100mg pregnenolone (P5) dose accelerated recovery...

    Most People Recover From "addiction" On Their Own

    We have discussed the issue of "addiction" many times on this forum.

    About 40% Of People With Severe Depression Recover Naturally And Completely

    This study combined with the one I just posted on the dangers of SSRI should make anyone seriously think about what (if any) drug to consider for depression. It reminds me of the study that 80% of the people with "severe" addiction recover on their own completely and do not need any drugs or...
