    Simple, Non-invasive Test For Adrogenic / Estrogenic Tone

    One of the core issues in modern endocrinology is the relatively weak correlation between serum levels of steroids and the overall activity in the organism associated with a particular steroid. For example, post-menopausal women have very low levels of estradiol yet very high whole-body...

    Help Me: SN-2 Positioning

    I'm having a difficult time figuring out how the sn-2 positioning of fatty acids works. What's the mechanism? What's the practical application? For instance, I've been using beef Tallow for its stearic acid and palmitic acid content, but I've read that over 50% of the fatty acids in the sn-2...

    PUFA Required/essential For Cancer; Stearic Acid Is A PUFA Antagonist & Anti-cancer

    Two studies showing that PUFA (linoleic) acid is essential for cancer development. As the studies show, cancer cells accumulate large quantities of oleic acid and the saturation index (SI) - i.e. ratio of stearic/oleic acids in erythrocytes (RBC) is very low in cancer. This SI can also be used...

    Stearic Acid Increases Mitochondrial Function, May Treat Parkinson Disease (PD)

    I posted recently about the ability of dietary stearic acid to reduce abdominal fat accumulation by more than 70%. This study provides some insight as to what the mechanism of action behind that anti-obesity effect may be. The study below found that when stearic acid was fed at a dose of 10% of...

    Dietary Stearic Acid Reduces Visceral Fat By 70% And Increases Lean Mass

    This is a study that @Travis will probably like a lot. Stearic acid is one of the SFA that are considered anti-inflammatory even by mainstream science. It has pronounced anti-tumor effects in various cancer models, and one of the proposed mechanisms was its ability to reduce fat deposits. The...
