    Vitamin D prevents cortisol-induced depression and...inflammation

    A great study for a number of reasons. First, it discussed openly that in animal research circles cortisol administration is considered an official and reliable method of causing major depression. As the article states, for some reason human medical circles have been unwilling to accept the...

    Vitamin D is anti-catabolic / anabolic, protects liver from cortisol injury

    In a recent post of mine I discussed the effects of cortisol on various aminotransferases (especially TAT), their role as biomarkers of catabolism, and how inhibitors of said aminotransferases have a potent anti-catabolic / anabolic effects. In that same post, I also described how cortisol (a...

    Vitamin D/K Combo Increases Penis Size As Much As Surgery

    A very interesting study, not only because of its obvious social implications but also because it confirms the anabolic effects of the vitamin D/K combination, as well as the likely androgenic effects of vitamin D. I could not help but pronounce the D/K combo in my head as "dee-k" :): Another...

    Vitamin D Reduces Blood Sugar And Body Fat In Obese Women

    A neat study, albeit lasting much longer (about 1.5 years) than most other intervention studied with vitamin D. What makes this study particularly interesting is that it only used high doses vitamin D (60,000 IU once weekly) initially until blood levels rose into the normal range. It did not...

    Vitamin D - The New Antibiotic Against Skin And Gut Infections

    A great new study demonstrating the crucial role of vitamin D in maintaining proper immune function. The study demonstrates that maintaining normal levels of vitamin D is strongly protective against gut infections by Salmonella-type bacteria. Interestingly, the authors claim that vitamin D is...

    Vitamin D Strikingly Therapeutic For Type II Diabetes

    Despite the ongoing assault against "ineffective" dietary supplements, the evidence in favor of them keeps piling on. One of the favorite targets of mainstream media is vitamin D, and multiple claims of "ineffectiveness" based on "meta" studies have come out in the last 5 years. Usually, this is...

    Vitamin D May Stop Melanoma Growth

    A great study that corroborates my recent post on avoiding sunlight being as bad for health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. After all, without sunlight there won't be much vitamin D synthesis and supplementation is not effective for many people due to variety of factors including excess...

    Vitamin D Deficiency Can Cause Heart Failure

    As many readers know, there is an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency. It is of worldwide proportions, but is visible mainly in "developed" countries in the Western world. The official stance of mainstream medicine is that while vitamin D deficiency is undesirable, it does not really have much...

    Vitamin D May Be A Safe, Seizure-minimizing Epilepsy Treatment

    Note that the title is the actual opinion of the study authors, and not my interpretation. The study lasted 12 weeks and used 5,000 IU vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) daily. Beneficial effects on seizures were visible after 6 weeks and were correlated with normalizing vitamin D levels in the...

    Vitamin D Beneficial In Advanced GI Cancers

    The study shows that a daily dose of 4,000 IU – 8,000 IU vitamin D reduces cancer progression by up to 36%. The study had 2 phases, the first one used 4,000 IU vitamin D daily and the second one used 8,000 IU daily. Both phases reported robust benefit, and also noted something Peat has been...

    CNN News - Running Lowers Testosterone In Males

    When news like this features on CNN, it is becoming obvious that something it not right with the official recommendations for regular (endurance) exercise as the best way to ward off CVD, cancer, brain diseases, osteoporosis, etc. The CNN piece also states that vitamin D supplements, weight...

    Low Vitamin D Levels In Patients With ADHD

    The study is not interventional, so too early to say if vitamin D supplementation will help ADHD. However, the link seems promising given the role of vitamin D in dopamine synthesis, which is though to be low in ADHD. [Full text] Vitamin D and vitamin D receptor levels in children with...

    High Estrogen (Androgen Deficiency) Causes Low Vitamin D; DHT Is Therapeutic

    I rarely stumble across studies like this one. Namely, showing in one single experiment both the detrimental effects of estrogen on one of the most important biomarkers of health (vitamin D), and the beneficial effects of a steroid long vilified/demonized by virtually everybody wearing a white...

    Vitamin D Rapidly Reduces Arterial Stiffness In Humans

    As many of you know arterial stiffness is one of the main signs of CVD and contributes significantly to both elevations of blood pressure (BP) and actual ischemic events in brain/heart. According to official guidelines, arterial stiffness cannot be reversed once it sets in, and the only recourse...

    Calcirol - Liquid Vitamin D3

    Just like the other vitamin products we have released, this product does not really need any introduction to anybody familiar with Peat's work. So, unlike other products of ours, there won't be as many references listed in support of this product but I think even the few ones below are enough to...

    Children Drinking Whole Milk Are Leaner Than Ones Drinking Skim Or Low Fat Milk

    I know Peat has mentioned a few times that people do not drink whole milk, but it appears the extra calories from whole milk are actually not the issue in weight gain, at least not in children. As I posted in my thread on the endotoxin theory of CVD, obesity is an endocrine disorder driven by...

    Vitamin D Cuts The Risk Of Colds And Flu By More Than Half

    Vitamin D was once the darling of every family doctor. It was recommended for quite a few ailments both as prevention and treatment. However, in the first decade of the 21st century, the vitamin took a beating as a few large (but poorly designed) trials failed to find benefit for a number of...

    Vitamin D May Be A Viable Therapy For Autism (human Study)

    This is one of the rare human studies using direct intervention for autism. As you can see, there was significant improvement in symptoms with a dose of 300 IU / kg of bodyweight, given daily for 4 months. In addition to the pro-metabolic effects of vitamin D, it is also a known inhibitor of TPH...

    Supplemental D3

    Another quandary. I've been reading more and more about what potentially alleviates high blood pressure. K2 is a winner but D3 also seems to have science behind it and according to certain studies the two work synergistically. On the other hand, I read a new study recently that said that D3...
