    Uncoupling increases T3

    It has long been shown that T3 increases uncoupling ,but this study shows that it also works vice versa : Uncoupling (through BAT activation) increases deiodinase type 2 ,which catalyzes T4 toT3 conversion . This should create a positive feedback loop. If you uncouple your metabolism with...

    Anxiety / Mental Illness Caused By Mitochondria

    Role of mitochondrial uncoupling protein-2 (UCP2) in higher brain functions, neuronal plasticity and network oscillation This is another study along the lines of what @haidut has been posting here for the last years: mental Illnesses are a metabolic problem, start in the mitochondria and (what...

    Uncoupling Increases Life Span And Generates More Mitochondria

    Dont know if this study has been posted before ,one way or another it is worth a read! Uncoupling protein-2 and the potential link between metabolism and longevity. The discovery of novel uncoupling proteins (UCP2 and UCP3) over 10 years ago heralded a new era of research in mitochondrial...
