Alcohol causes liver (and other organ) damage by lowering NAD/NADH ratio

A neat little study, which demonstrates once again the crucial role of energy and optimal redox status in a public health issue that has now reached catastrophic proportions. Namely, alcohol-related morbidity and mortality. Those have always been an issue in any developed country but since the start of the “pandemic” have exacerbated dramatically. As most … Read more Alcohol causes liver (and other organ) damage by lowering NAD/NADH ratio

Increased fatty acid synthesis (FAS) is simply a sign of oxygen deficiency / low metabolism

Just a quick post on a study that provides insight as to how increased fatty acid oxidation (FAO) can “paradoxically” result in increased FAS as well, thus leading to a vicious cycle most commonly seen in diabetes and cancer. One of my recent posts discussed a much more recent study that demonstrated the same effect … Read more Increased fatty acid synthesis (FAS) is simply a sign of oxygen deficiency / low metabolism
