    Calcification in a dialysis patient successfully treated (reversed) with high-dose vitamin K supplementation

    annoyingly this study did not show reversal like the others, just a slowing of calcification like a lot of the studies do Effect of vitamin K1 supplementation on matrix Gla protein level and vascular calcification in hemodialysis patients - The Egyptian Journal of Internal Medicine 10mg 3x a...

    High blood Vitamin A

    My sister (age 37) recently did a blood test and Vitamin A is above range (result: 89.60 μg/dL, range: 30.00-80.00 μg/dL). This is very puzzling because she does not eat liver, and does not take a Vitamin A supplement. She eats some eggs and dairy but not much. She probably eats a large amount...

    When is the best time of the day to take vitamin A?

    I've been taking 25,000 UI of retinyl acetate topically for a month or so. I tend to take it in the evening, before bed time, because it is the easiest time for me to remember. Since vitamin A can lower cortisol and ACTH, would it be better to take it in the morning when those two are the...

    Vitamin A is required for male fertility

    I am posting about this study not because I am thrilled at the possibility of society now having oral (non-steroid) contraceptive methods for males, but rather because this study highlights that vitamin A is actually required for male fertility. Even minor interference with so-called retinoic...

    Hypervitaminosis A — A Case Study Of Myself

Background: I started a pro-metabolic diet around 2 years ago, firstly inspired by Stan Efferding‘s „Vertical Diet“, who quoted Ray Peat...

    Vitamin K, D and A bind to the SARS‐CoV‐2 spike protein

    This study shows that Vitamin K, D, and A very effectively bind to a certain part of the SARS‐CoV‐2 spike protein (fatty acid binding site) . Through this mechanism it inhibits viral entry, because it blocks binding to the endogenous ACE2 enzyme. At least this is how I'm reading it, correct me...

    Thoughts on Vitamin A Supplementation alongside T3?

    What do you think about Vitamin A supplementation in general and taking it alongside T3? And if you had to choose between taking vitamin A with Thyroid or aspirin with Thyroid, which one would you choose and why?

    Vitamin A may treat anosmia (loss of smell) due to COVID-19

    Once again, evidence emerges that widely available, dirt-cheap interventions may be able to treat a condition for which mainstream medicine claims there is no available cure. Namely, one of the most persistent and "baffling" symptoms associated with current or past COVID-19 experience is anosmia...

    Feeling incredibly Dried-Out after breakfast (includes liver): Vitamin A Toxicity?

    After breakfast, I always feel incredibly dried out. My whole body, especially my eyes and tongue. I always eat a bit of liver for breakfast and have been for at least the last 6 months. Thing is, it's only breakfast. My other meals are basically the same foods, just without the liver. And I...

    Anti-A people, how do you respond to D?

    I've been researching the relationship of vitamin A and D. Before I give any of my own input I'd like to know how the people who benefit from vitamin A restriction feel on vitamin D supps or intentional sun bathing. Please include your history of pharmaceutical A use if applicable.

    Does liver from grain-fed animals contain vitamin A?

    In my country, the majority of liver you can buy seems to come from grain-fed animals. Would these livers even contain vitamin A, seeing as the animal needs carotene to make the vitamin A (frozen too, as you can't get fresh)? I've been eating lots of liver, and it hasn't really made me feel any...

    Help Desperately Needed: Ridged Fingernails!

    I don't know when this started, but it's bothering me a lot. I have these pretty pronounced vertical ridge-like structures in my fingernails. It was pretty hard to photograph, but I tried my best at it and editing it a bit to make them more easily visible: It may not look like much, but they...

    Anti-Peat Liver And Oysters Aren't Health Foods?

    I'll quickly say here that in the grand scope of the last 1-2 years, there was a time where I received great energetic benefit from consuming liver and oysters. During a short time of a few weeks I'd venture to say that I even over-consumed them in an attempt to load up on these dietary elements...
