    A couple of thoughts on this list.
    I wonder if dairy cattle are usually fed selenium and iodine supplementation? Otherwise, I wouldn't expect them to be plentiful in butter if they are grazing on deficient soils - our local soils are known to be deficient in both, but maybe they supplement for the animal's health.
    I don't think Peat would consider arachidonic acid to be a benefit?
    I don't see why butter wouldn't be stored as body fat under the conditions that otherwise cause fat gain?

    Given that some of these seem questionable, I don't have confidence in the reliability of ones I don't know anything about.

    European Union law permits to fortify animal feed with iodine even for organic meat, milk and eggs.

    Iodine content of milk in Germany [mcg/l] according to different sources of information:

    nutritian facts: 70
    milk industry : 95-140
    tests: 30-180

    Anyone who thinks he can't get iodine acne if he doesn't supplement iodine: Think again!

    So estimates vary a bit even in one country, and the soil, and maybe the regulatory framework and the common practice may all vary from country to country. At least I guess all the cattle are getting enough selenium and iodine to meet their own basic health needs, and I hopefully the health of their offspring, if they were allowed to feed them.

    Have you heard about Datis Kharrazian and his work on exercising the vagus nerve (by singing loudly or gargling) to promote health?

    So -- about the cypro -- I started with about 2.5 mg twice a day and would just zonk out -- I mean literally fall asleep -- in the middle of the day for about two months. It made me feel so much better though that I continued till now I'm up to 5.

    For a while it would still put me to sleep at night for eons but now my body is used to it so it doesn't really have a sedative effect that I'm aware of. It also doesn't really have a 'weight gain" effect for me. I don't think the weight gain idea is really valid, it still depends on what you're eating and I suppose what you're absorbing.

    Still going hard on the butter. There seems to be something in it that my body absolutely insists it needs -- I'm going to say maybe six tablespoons a day at the very least. What I'm going with is a theory that I got some kind of gut infection at some point, and I have pretty bad dysbiosis at the moment, and the butyric acid is balancing things somehow.

    I'm not entirely sure that's right but here is some interesting testimony. For the past four months I have not had a period. I thought it was menopause but -- after month of cypro plus progest-e plus massive butter, it came right on time, right on the full moon, like it never left.

    Iodine is used to prevent goiter, too much iodine is associated with Hashimoto's, It's easy to overdo on iodine in Germany: Animal food is fortified and there is widerspread use of iodised salt. To estimate selenium content of one's diet is as tricky as to estimate iodine content.

    Yes, regulatory framework, common practice and content of minerals in soils vary from country to country.

    This is a really old thread. But I was home for thanksgiving break and my mother made Rice Krispie treats(Butter, Rice Krispies, Marsh mellows). I ate like half a of the whole thing. Woke up feeling more energized then ever before. So I started eating them over the next few days and my testosterone levels feel like they tripled. I kid you not it's like I am 16 again.

    What is the mechanism of action? I feel like they must absorb very easily, way easier than normal rice or potato.
