Niacinamide increases aerobic capacity, muscle endurance in humans

There has been a steady increase in human studies with vitamin B3 analogs over the last 3-5 years. Most of that human research is sponsored by the company ChromaDex, which sells a proprietary formulation of nicotinamide riboside (NR), despite its own studies demonstrating that niacinamide / nicotinamide (NAM) is just as effective at raising NAD/NADH … Read more

Vitamin B1 can reverse heart damage/failure caused by alcoholism

The beneficial effects of vitamin B1 (thiamine) on the nervous system have been known for a long time, and the vitamin is routinely used in hospitals around the world to treat both acute alcohol intoxication as well as the nervous system damage known as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome caused by chronic alcohol abuse. It has been known … Read more

Doxycycline can CURE melanoma in humans

A great study and perhaps the first that confirmed in humans the already well-known anti-cancer effects of the tetracycline antibiotic family. Considering the almost complete ban on the word “cure” scientific journals have bestowed on cancer-related publications using non-mainstream therapies, the fact that this article/study was allowed to utter it speaks volumes by itself. Unfortunately, … Read more

Endotoxin (LPS) as a cause of liver disease, obesity and diabetes

The first article below is actually about praising fermented foods, which I don’t really agree with. So, I am posting it mostly because of the quote on endotoxin/LPS, which is a very rare finding in published medical literature since medicine does not recognize chronic, low-grade endotoxemia as a cause of any disease and claims the … Read more

Iron supplementation may not cure anemia, unless nutrition is also improved

As many of my readers know, Peat is against supplementing with isolated iron. Aside from the well-known toxicity risks (e.g. liver damage) multiple studies have shown that in a good portion of the people treated with oral iron supplements, anemia either does not resolve or rapidly returns upon stopping the supplements. This is most likely … Read more

Vitamin D improves ovarian reserves in women with infertility

Diminished ovarian reserves are one of the major causes of female infertility. It used to be a problem mostly in women over 45 who were trying to get pregnant, however, it has now become a common finding even in 30+ year-old females. Estrogen is known to play a big role, and some studies have demonstrated … Read more

Intense exercise causes mitochondrial damage even in elite athletes

Hopefully, this post won’t be interpreted as trying to bash exercise. Its goal is to simply draw attention to the fact that intense exercise can be detrimental even for elite athletes. While the damage the study observed was temporary, it is now known that (just like ionizing radiation) the damage of chronic stress / overtraining … Read more

Damaged mitochondria may cause 90%+ of Parkinson Disease (PD) cases

More evidence that yet another “incurable” condition is little more than energy deficit (due to mitochondrial dysfunction) in disguise. In this case the mitochondrial dysfunction was caused by accumulation of mitochondrial debris inside the cell, which has been repeatedly shown by other studies (and discussed on this blog) to be due primarily to chronic stress. … Read more

Aging is an energy deficiency problem, taking cardiolipin may reverse it

Yet another study demonstrating that “aging” is nothing but a phenotype characterizing an organism with declining energy production. Since most of the cellular energy is produced in the mitochondria, another way of stating the same is that aging (and any specific disease for that matter) is a mitochondrial dysfunction problem. Conversely, reversing that energy/mitochondrial deficiency … Read more

It’s official: COVID-19 vaccination may be stemming evolution of “fitter” SARS-CoV-2 variants

Actual title of the press article. I won’t comment much on this for obvious (read: censorship) reasons, but I will say this – Luc Montagnier was right (see first link below). Nobel Prize Winner French Virologist Luc Montagnier Explains How COVID-19 Vaccines Are Creating Variants https://doi.org/10.1101/2021.07.01.21259833 https://www.news-medical.net/news/20210706/COVID-19-vaccination-may-be-stemming-evolution-of-e2809cfittere2809d-SARS-CoV-2-variants.aspx “…“This study demonstrates that mass vaccination may serve … Read more
