    It was wartime and food was scarce. Leaders of England’s effort to wage war and help the public survive during World War II needed to know: Were the rations in lifeboats adequate for survival at sea? And, among several experiments important for public as well as military heath, how much vitamin C did a person need to avoid the deadly disease scurvy? In one experiment at the Sorby Research Institute in Sheffield, called the “shipwreck” experiment, volunteers were fed only what the navy carried in lifeboats. The grueling experiment resulted in more water and less food being carried in lifeboats....

    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?

    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...
  • Vitamin B3 as a possible treatment for glaucoma

    06/05/2021 9:54:17 AM PDT · by ConservativeMind · 11 replies
    Glaucoma involves a high risk of losing sight. Researchers at Karolinska Institutet and St. Erik Eye Hospital, among others, have now studied the effects of nicotinamide, the amide of vitamin B₃, on animal and cell models for glaucoma. The study, published in Redox Biology, may be a future neuroprotective therapy in glaucoma in humans. A clinical trial will start in the autumn. In glaucoma, the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain, is progressively damaged, often in association with elevated pressure inside the eye. The only treatment strategies currently available target the pressure in the eye using eye...

    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,...

    Food rich in vitamin D. In a retrospective study of individuals tested for COVID-19, vitamin D levels above those traditionally considered sufficient were associated with a lower risk of COVID-19. A new research study at the University of Chicago Medicine has found that when it comes to COVID-19, having vitamin D levels above those traditionally considered sufficient may lower the risk of infection, especially for Black people. The study, published today (March 19, 2021) in JAMA Open Network, retrospectively examined the relationship between vitamin D levels and likelihood of testing positive for COVID-19. While levels of 30 ng/ml or more...

    I was taught in medical school that coronary artery disease (CAD), or the blockages that can choke off blood flow to the heart, progresses from minor “streaks” in youth, to visible plaques young adulthood, and on to complicated plaques and major problems later in life. During my training the arrow always pointed towards heart disease advancing and never reversing. This is just not true! Indeed, for nearly 3 decades it has been known that just as arteries can worsen with time, they can also improve rapidly. Some of the measures to achieve this are presented here.

    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...

    BIRMINGHAM, United Kingdom — As winter arrives, hot tea and cocoa naturally become popular drink choices with a lot of people. A new study finds drinking cocoa is not just the popular choice, it may also be the “smart” choice as well. Researchers at the University of Birmingham say consuming flavanol-rich products, such as cocoa, increases one’s mental performance. Flavanols are a group of molecules which occur naturally in fruits and vegetables. They’re a member of the plant flavonoid family and are common in cocoa, grapes, apples, tea, berries, and even wine. While previous studies reveal these molecules can improve...

    A high-dose vitamin K supplement reduced calcium precipitates associated with hardening of the arteries by 37 percent in rats, scientists from The Netherlands have reported. If the results can be reproduced in humans, high-dose vitamin K could have potential clinical implications for reducing arterial calcification, which is an important independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD). “High vitamin K intake not only prevents calcification, but even regresses arterial calcifications,” lead researcher Leon Schurgers said. There are two main forms of vitamin K: phylloquinone, also known as phytonadione, (vitamin K1) which is found in green leafy vegetables such...

Google it: old, overweight, black, diabetic, smog dwellers, nursing homes, prisons, shaded NYC streets, Chinese urban dwellers, covered body parts (Iran). All would have vitamin D issues.Maybe we only think the heat and sunlight and humidity are what makes most viruses fade in summer. I believe science is not entirely sure why summer helps. All four variables seem promising,...

    “Without firing a missile or hacking the electric grid, China can take America down by disrupting access to essential drugs,” write the authors of this important book. This book is a fine piece of investigative journalism that educates the reader about the genesis of China’s grip on our supply of medications. China is now the largest global supplier of the active ingredients and chemical building blocks needed to make many vitamins, and prescription and over-the-counter drugs. These include antibiotics, steroids, and cancer drugs. Until the mid-1990s, the U.S., Europe, and Japan manufactured 90 percent of the global supply of key...
