• tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    Vitamin K can regenerate the liver

    I've been trying to find evidence for the mechanism of action of all vitamin K forms on regenerating/helping the liver. The MoAs mentioned on this forum are kind of vague in my opinion. I do think vitamin K can be very helpful for the liver in many ways and I think the specific MoA deserves...

    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...

    Blunted Emotions from Vitamin K2?

    Has anyone else experienced a blunted mood when dosing K2 (MK4) higher than 5mg? I pretty much become emotionless and careless, have less empathy.

    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...
