  • Antioxidant drug (supplement?) reverses process responsible for heart attacks and strokes (32-56% reduction in plaques)

    09/09/2021 5:38:15 PM PDT · by ConservativeMind · 46 replies
    An antioxidant drug reverses atherosclerosis and could be used to prevent heart attacks and strokes due to clots. Atherosclerosis is the build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries. When a type of fat called LDL cholesterol becomes oxidized and builds up to form plaques in the artery walls, inflammation and damage increase which can cause the plaques to rupture and cause blood to clot. These clots can block vital arteries that allow blood to flow to the heart, causing a heart attack, or to the brain causing a stroke. Previously, researchers at the University of Reading discovered that LDL cholesterol...

    Fresh off its triumph of getting the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to approve its comirnaty vaccine, Pfizer has announced its success in developing a cure for COVID. Company spokesman Brad Lyman explained "while we have every confidence that comirnaty will prove invincible against the coronavirus we acknowledge that it may not be possible to vaccinate everyone as often as is needed to maintain immunity. Not wanting to leave the world without a back-up plan, we developed covicure. This oral medication comes in two versions covicure-H and covicure-I." "Both of these drugs contain a proprietary blend of vitamins B, C...

    Since the beginning of the pandemic, researchers worldwide have been looking for ways to treat COVID-19. And while the COVID-19 vaccines represent the best measure to prevent the disease, therapies for those who do get infected remain in short supply. A new groundbreaking study from U-M reveals several drug contenders already in use for other purposes -- including one dietary supplement -- that have been shown to block or reduce SARS-CoV2 infection in cells. The study uses artificial intelligence-powered image analysis of human cell lines during infection with the novel coronavirus. The cells were treated with more than 1,400 individual...

    What's good for the body is good for the brain. For example, getting lots of exercise, reducing stress, going easy on the alcohol, and not smoking are all no-brainer brain boosters that you've heard about. But what has been getting more attention these days is the surprising connection between your gray matter and your diet. "The nutrients from food influence chemicals that directly and indirectly affect your brain and in turn change the way you think and feel," says nutritional psychiatrist, Uma Naidoo, MD, a professional chef, nutrition expert, and author of the book This Is Your Brain on Food....

  • Will the Epigenetic process of methylation block the mRNA from replicating the DNA that produces the Spiked Protein?

    07/28/2021 12:36:07 PM PDT · by tired&retired · 34 replies
    In 2003 Randy Jirtle at Duke University used 4 B vitamins to block the DNA transcription process of Agouti Mice that were genetically predisposed to cancer, diabetes and obesity. It blocked the transcription of aberrant DNA utilizing a protein sleeve that blocked the replication process. The unusual thing was that the offspring of the pregnant mice who were fed the supplements did not have the negative attributes and neither did the next generation. I have been fighting fatigue and severe cramping ever since my J&J vaccine, after having Covid in January 2020. I started on the mega B vitamins, and...
  • Fewer COVID-19 Infections Detected in Women Who Take Certain Vitamins, Study Claims

    04/20/2021 8:14:22 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 30 replies ^ | 20 APRIL 2021 | JACINTA BOWLER
    While in some countries the vaccine rollout is well underway, many of us still live amidst the risks of the COVID-19 pandemic without protection, and need all the help we can get. An interesting study by an international team of researchers has now found a small association with supplement use, indicating fewer COVID-19 infections in women who are taking certain types of vitamins. But don't rush to the pharmacy just yet. Firstly, it's important to remember that the potential merits of multivitamins are extremely limited. Doctors generally advise that most people get enough micronutrients in their diet to keep healthy,...
  • A Banned Experimental Stimulant From 1940s Was Just Found in Weight Loss Supplements

    An experimental stimulant drug from the World War II era is showing up in weight loss and sports supplements sold today, according to a new study. The stimulant, known as phenpromethamine, was last sold as a nasal inhaler called Vonedrine in the 1940s and 1950s, but it has since been withdrawn from the market and has never been approved for oral use, according to the study, published Tuesday (March 23) in the journal Clinical Toxicology. It's also banned from competitive sports by the World Anti-Doping Agency. The new study appears to be the first to confirm the presence of phenpromethamine...
  • Finally, a Supplement That Actually Boosts Memory – Many Already Take It for Better Sleep - melatonin

    Researchers at Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) in Japan show that melatonin and its metabolites promote the formation of long-term memories in mice and protect against cognitive decline. Researchers at Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) showed that melatonin’s metabolite AMK can enhance the formation of long-term memories in mice. Memory of objects were tested after treatment with melatonin or two of its metabolites. Older mice that normally performed poorly on the memory task showed improvements as dosage increased. The metabolite AMK was found to be the most important as melatonin failed to improve memory if it was blocked...

    Study Finds ^ | January 27, 2021 | John Anderer
    Anyone in the mood for salmon? A new study finds higher omega-3 levels in the bloodstream may reduce one’s risk of dying from a COVID-19 infection. Conducted by the Fatty Acid Research Institute in collaboration with Cedars-Sinai Medical Centers in Los Angeles and Orange County, these findings are the first to uncover direct evidence linking omega-3 fatty acids with improved coronavirus health outcomes. Numerous scientists had theorized that omega-3 fatty acids may be beneficial for COVID-19 patients, but all of that was ultimately conjecture at best. The new study involved blood samples taken from 100 COVID-19 patients taken to a...

    Melatonin, a dietary supplement often used by insomnia sufferers, could be used to possibly help prevent or treat COVID-19, according to researchers at the Cleveland Clinic. The hormone — which regulates the sleep-wake cycle — was associated with an almost 30 percent reduced likelihood of contracting the disease, the scientists said in research published in the journal PLOS Biology, KIRO 7 reported. Additional studies are required about the over-the-counter supplement, the researchers said. “It is very important to note these findings do not suggest people should start to take melatonin without consulting their physician,” lead researcher Feixiong Cheng of the...

  • Possible Low Tech Cure For Covid?

    A relation of mine asked me to post this on FreeRepublic to find out what any scientists might think of a possible low tech cure for Covid. Here is what she says: I'm wishing for feedback regarding rudimentary low tech concepts for 1. Treatment of Respiratory Infections, 2. Immunity Development and 3. Cancer Destruction. Background: A free chlorine residual around 1ppm after chlorine demand is met over sufficient contact time (less than 0.05ppm indicates adverse water quality) is commonly used to ensure adequate disinfection of pathogenic viruses and bacteria in ground water. Free chlorine concentrations less than 3ppm in drinking...

      An important note No supplement will cure or prevent disease.With the 2019 coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, it’s especially important to understand that no supplement, diet, or other lifestyle modification other than social distancing and proper hygiene practices can protect you from COVID-19. Currently, no research supports the use of any supplement to protect against COVID-19 specifically.Your immune system consists of a complex collection of cells, processes, and chemicals that constantly defends your body against invading pathogens, including viruses, toxins, and bacteria (1Trusted Source, 2Trusted Source). Keeping your immune system healthy year round is key to preventing infection and disease. Making healthy...

  • Prolonging healthy aging: Longevity vitamins and proteins

    07/27/2019 8:04:05 PM PDT · by ConservativeMind · 133 replies
    Abstract It is proposed that proteins/enzymes be classified into two classes according to their essentiality for immediate survival/reproduction and their function in long-term health: that is, survival proteins versus longevity proteins. As proposed by the triage theory, a modest deficiency of one of the nutrients/cofactors triggers a built-in rationing mechanism that favors the proteins needed for immediate survival and reproduction (survival proteins) while sacrificing those needed to protect against future damage (longevity proteins). Impairment of the function of longevity proteins results in an insidious acceleration of the risk of diseases associated with aging. I also propose that nutrients required for...
