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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Is Vitamin A Toxin Or Is It Excess Of It What Makes It Harmfull?

    I have pssd and im one of the low ceruloplasmin case. I heard that vitamin A is a literal toxin to the body, to the liver, etc. How true is that? I just took a capsule of 30 mg retinol palmitate (30.000 IU) and im bit scared to be honest. If i really have low copper, does it mean that i just...

    Post Your Vitamin A Success Stories Here Please

    I was listening to the interview with Dr. Peat that Danny Roddy did maybe 2 or 3 years ago and Dr. Peat was talking about a good many successes with vitamin A up to 100,000 units a day. I'm now taking 25,000 units a day while I take 50,000 units of D3 and some K2 (maybe 5-15mg a day of K2 MK4)...

    Vitamin A Against Endotoxin And Serotonin

    I found some cool studies on the ,in my opinion, unappreciated role of Vitamin A against Endotoxin and therefore against Serotonin. @Koveras has already posted that a single big dose dose of Vitamin A may be a treatment for autism(Vitamin A May Be A Viable Therapy For Autism (human Study))...

    Anti-Peat Grant Genereux's Theory Of Vitamin A Toxicity

    I recently stumbled across the blog of Grant Genereux, an engineer from Canada, wherein he recounts his story of how he cured himself of severe eczema as well as chronic fatigue and brain fog with an elimination diet. But that's just the beginning of it, because he has also done what I consider...

    Vitamin A Toxicity Neutralized By Vitamin C

    This is a study posted in the 1938 Journal of Nutrition with some interesting correlations of Vitamins A, D, C, and B1. Since this is a rat study, if someone can translate the dosages into human equivalents it would be helpful. But even without the human interpretation it is obvious the...
