    The carrot salad doesn't need to have any beta carotene at all.

    Carrots come in different colors one of which is yellow/ white. There is no reason why that carrot shouldn't be just as therapeutic as the orange carrots. It may be a bit harder to find but one can even grow them themselves if they order some heirloom carrot seeds. Ray also didn't utilize that...

    Important role of copper in schizophrenia (transporters) (Vitamin D and A)

    Worth posting this in its own thread, copper looks to be highly significant in schizophrenia, where blood levels tend to be higher than normal BUT brain levels lower in copper regardless (due to defective copper transport) so problem is with transport typically instead of levels, leading to...

    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...

    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...

    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.
