    Which supplements should not be taken with coffee?

    It’s so much easier to take my supplements in the morning before the busy day begins. I never know if coffee or combining supplements renders them useless or harmful. Has anyone figured this out?

    Prevent nutrient deficiency from processed sugar consumption

    Everything a humans does drains certain nutrients, so this is a not a demonization of sugar but as we know sugar can increase the metabolism and cause an increased demand for nutrients, like thyroid supplementation. A logical but somewhat reductionist approach is to incorporate a non caloric...

    A categorization of vitamins & minerals as yin or yang

    In accordance with traditional Chinese medicine, all foods fall on a spectrum of "yin" or "yang." The notion is that a "yin" food is generally cooling and a "yang" food is generally warming. Ideally, when these are kept in balance, symptoms of an excess of either "yin" or "yang" can be resolved...

    Here’s how to get all your vitamins and minerals without vegetables

    I've gotten this question quite frequently. It's actually very simple to get all your micros without eating any veggies. But don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you have to avoid veggies entirely (as long as they're not gut-irritating), they can taste absolutely great for sure. But many people...

    Suppliers Thread - Supplements, heatlth foods, pharmaceuticals, other products

    hey all. I'm thinking it would be good to compile a list of suppliers of various things (good foods, supplements, pharmaceuticals, red lights etc). I think this would help members find the best suppliers in their area and also help to find some harder to acquire options. It could look something...

    I’m Not Convinced Vitamin D Should Be Supplemented

    I was going through my old lectures on Calcium and did a double check firing up Pubmed... this scheme seems to make it pretty clear that calcitriol, just like PTH and Aldosterone should not be used up, to avoid intracellular calcification and higher blood pressure? However, other studies...

    Your Thoughts On Dolores Cahill Regarding Vitamins + Zinc Against SarsCov2

    If Ray's recent aperçue is accurate -- that amongst right wingers is where we find honest concerns about health -- than Dolores Cahill, founder of the Irish Freedom Party, might have a valuable say. She has an impressive resume and has given bold interviews recently, calling for accountability...

    Nearly All Prescription (and Some Supplements) Pills Contain Highly Allergenic Excipients

    Finally a study that directly corroborates one of Peat's most consistent message over the years. Namely, that drugs prescribed by doctors and dietary supplements in the forms of capsules/tablets contain additives/excipients that are not harmless at all and in fact can be responsible for many...

    B Vitamins Help Schizophrenia

    While this was a meta study it is still significant because it looked at quite a few OTC supplements and found only the B-family of vitamins to have a positive effect. The effects of vitamin and mineral supplementation on symptoms of schizophrenia: a systematic review and meta-analysis |...

    Vitamins B2 And B12 Protect Against GI Cancer

    Even though this is officially considered an epidemiological study, it was a lot more controlled than that. The patients were given vitamin supplementation and compliance was enforced as much as possible. So, you can call this an open label trial. And given that the population studied was one...

    Making An A, D, K, E Pill?

    I was wondering if I mixed the liquid forms of these vitamins with a powder of some sort & then added them to a gelatin capsule , what might be some of the downsides? I was thinking of using corn starch, calcium carbonate, or something else? Oxidation is probably my biggest concern but really...

    How exactly do you get your vitamin and mineral requirments (what do you eat/drink)?

    I'm looking for the outcome of all this without needing to know everything like Dr. Peat. From reading his dense site and the suggestions of this site I've been able to get fractions of helpful info, like a puzzle I haven't completed yet. If your diet and lifestyle is healthy, what are you...

    Hello, I was wondering, do you all just go by the RDA for your minerals/vitamins, etc requirements? I have a hard time believing that it could be accurate when everything else we've been taught is so wrong but I haven't read anything from Peat about it exactly either..........
