    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...

    Is aspirin harmful to the mitochondria? (a discussion of the research)

    Another great concern that people might have about aspirin is its effect on the mitochondria (the first 1 I covered was aspirin and intestinal bleeding). There is some research indicating that it might be harmful, and the last thing we would want to do is harm our mitochondria. But what's the...

    Simple Heating Of Tumor Often Leads To A Rapid And Complete Cure

    As many readers of my blog know, one of the primary signs/symptoms in cancer patients is the frequent occurrence of fevers. The official position of mainstream medicine is that the cause of these fevers is unknown but may have to do with the so-called "tumor lysis syndrome". Regardless, the...

    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...

    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)...

    Lanosterol - Liquid Lanosterol For Lab/R&D

    I guess most people on the forum who have heard of lanosterol know it in the context of treating cataracts. Lanosterol - Wikipedia There is a company out there who used to sell lanosterol as eye drops and it is insanely expensive - $100 for a meager 10mg lanosterol. Anyways, lanosterol is...

    A Creatine-driven Substrate Cycle Enhances Energy Expenditure And Thermogenesis In Beige Fat

    A creatine-driven substrate cycle enhances energy expenditure and thermogenesis in beige fat. - PubMed - NCBI Thermogenic brown and beige adipose tissues dissipate chemical energy as heat, and their thermogenic activities can combat obesity and diabetes. Herein the functional adaptations to...

    Uncoupling Mice Brain Mitochondria Extends Lifespan

    This study seems puzzling in light of what RP claims is one of the best indicators of general health. I'm trying to figure out how this study doesn't contradict RP but have not found an explanation yet. Anyone else? Cool mice live longer : Nature News

    Blood Sugar Is Controlled Mostly By The Brain, Not Pancreas

    Ray wrote in one of his articles that pancreatic insulin is responsible for no more than 20% of glycemic control. While he mentioned potassium as the major factor, he also said that it is the brain that ultimately controls the levels of sugar in the blood. This study from Yale seems to confirm...

    Lauric Acid Induces Liver Mitochondrial Uncoupling

    This is probably one of the main reasons for the protective effects of coconut oil on liver health in conditions like NAFLD and cirrhosis. In fact, there are studies on PubMed showing complete reversal of cirrhosis with daily intake of about 75g of MCT such as the ones found in coconut oil, even...
