Vitamin E 100-fold more potent than remdesivir for SARS-CoV-2 / coronaviruses

A great study that demonstrates once again the versatility of vitamin E, not only as a PUFA peroxidation blocker (a better term than “antioxidant”, as the latter actually implies a metabolic inhibitor), but also as a substance with direct antiviral effects. Several studies came out over the last year demonstrating that most of the symptoms, … Read more

Aspirin may prevent and treat COVID-19

I may get banned from social media for making a post with such a title, but I am simply reporting on what the study discovered. Namely, even a low-dose aspirin used mostly for ischemic attack (heart or brain) prevention reduced risks of SARS-CoV-2 infection by almost 30%, while also shortening the duration of infection by … Read more

The tetracyclines protect against sepsis independently of their antibiotics effects

A remarkable study, which demonstrates that not all antibiotics have been created equal. Namely, the tetracycline family of antibiotics is strikingly protective against lethality from sepsis, and that protection is completely separate from their antibiotics effects. For example, the study demonstrated that pre-treatment with a puny single dose of doxycycline in a HED of 0.25 … Read more

Magnesium, vitamin D, B12 combo strikingly therapeutic for COVID-19

It is always good to see proof that medicine has not completely lost its mind by blindly chasing only the latest and greatest discovery in pharma antiviral drugs. The preventive and therapeutic effects of magnesium on viral diseases have been known for decades and has prompted the health authorities in several countries to market a … Read more

My first scientific study: Anti-cancer effects of CortiNon+

After more than 9 months of dealing with scientific bureaucracy, publishing politics, carefully crafting wording to avoid “rocking the boat”, and of course the “minor” issues of funding a study with personal income, I am pleased to present the two publications below (one of them co-authored by me). Namely, the results of both an in-vitro … Read more

Raising NAD levels may be therapeutic for COVID-19

A rather timely study, which demonstrates once again the crucial role energy plays even in “non-metabolic” diseases such as viral infections. At this point, even mainstream medicine admits that every function of the organism requires energy, so it would be plausible to expect an organism with higher energy reserves to be better able to defend … Read more

Pregnenolone (P5) – a new osteoporosis drug

About a month ago, I made a post in regards to aspirin becoming a new treatment for osteoporosis. Several months ago, I made another post about an in-vitro study demonstrating powerful anabolic effects of pregnenolone (P5) on bones. Apparently, the protective effects of P5 on bone health are known in certain circles and there have … Read more

Niacinamide may treat fibrotic eye disease and prevent vision loss

A great new study that demonstrated nicotinamide (NAM) may also have anti-fibrotic effects in addition to its positive effects on maintaining favorable NAD/NADH ratio and redox balance. The mechanism of action of NAM was inhibition of the TGF-β pathway and overall reduction of inflammation. This anti-fibrotic effect of NAM may explain its well-known protective effects … Read more

Vitamin K May Help Reduce Arterial Stiffness & Improve Blood Pressure

For those of my readers who don’t know, vitamin K is a prescription drug in many countries for treating/preventing osteoporosis, blood pressure, liver disease, neurological disorders, cancer, etc. Japan is where this remarkable substance enjoys perhaps the most prestige as an actual drug for treating so many of the chronic maladies developed societies encounter. Yet, … Read more

Vitamin E, anabolic / catatoxic steroids, egg yolks stop soft tissue calcification and (maybe) even aging

A great series of studies performed in the 1960s, with Hans Selye spearheading most of the investigations. It is amazing how much was known about human disease and aging, and how much of that knowledge has been so thoroughly forgotten to the point that doctors nowadays have never even heard of the term “catatoxic”. One … Read more
