All About Histamine H3 Receptors (HRH3/HR3): Genetics, Mechanisms, And Antagonists

Is histamine a villain… or really a superhero?

It really depends on which receptor it works on and where it is in the body.

In this post, we will discuss how to use the 3rd histamine receptor to boost cognition, memory, and attention.

We will first discuss how the histamine receptors work.

Then, we will move onto the benefits (and downsides) of blocking Histamine H3 Receptor's (HRH3 or H3R) activity with natural and pharmacological methods.

Lastly, we will discuss the potential benefits of increasing HRH3 with some agonists, HRH3's mechanism of action, and some important HRH3 SNPs.

Humanin: 7+ Ways To Increase Mitochondria's IGF-1

The term Humanin (HN) was coined by its discoverer, Professor Nishimoto, to denote the potential of this molecule to restore the “humanity” of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. 

Later we have found humanin protects cells from oxidative stress, serum starvation, hypoxia, and other insults as well as also improves cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer's disease.

256+ Ways To Increase Dopamine Naturally (Supplements And Genetics)

Dopamine is extremely important for everyday function and plays a much larger role in the body than just bonding, motivation, cognition, emotion, well-being, and movement.

Unfortunately, our environment today is very good at manipulating and hijacking our dopamine system.

In this post we will discuss, how/why dopamine is produced, how chronic inflammation affects dopamine, what are some quick fixes for dopamine, and what are some long lasting dopamine builders, as well how to avoid losing dopamine.

Why NRF2 Activation Can Make You More Sick

Recent cancer research has helped us understand how the body detoxes.

By studying upregulated genes in tumorous cells, we were able to find the Nuclear Erythroid 2–Related Factor 2 (NRF2) pathway.

NRF2 is a major transcription factor in detoxing the body and keeping it healthy.

In this post, we will discuss the benefits/downsides of NRF2 activation, as well as why NRF2 may be hurting you more than helping you (and what you can do about it).

Are EMFs Dangerous? Unbiased Science-Based Review of Electromagnetic Fields

Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are perceived as environmental stressors on living organisms.

But since man-made EMFs are a very new stressor for humans, our cells have not developed proper defensive mechanisms against them. 

For example, EMFs are classified as possibly carcinogenic (cancer causing) as is arsenic, chloroform, cigarettes, DDT, estrogenics, heavy metals, roundup, etc. 

It seems clear that we would not willingly expose ourselves to these other agents, so why would we expose ourselves EMFs?

Is it from digital dementia (using electronics to remember everything for us) or FOMO (fear of missing out)? 

In this post, to simplify everything, I'll try to stay away from quantum physics as much as possible. 😉

I'll also show as unbiased of an opinion of EMFs as possible, but I do give you my opinion towards the end.

I'll also provide ways you can protect yourself from the downsides of EMFs.

The 15+ Benefits of Broccoli Sprouts And Sulforaphane (And How To Prepare Them)

Sulforaphane (SFN) is naturally occurring in broccoli sprouts, which has the highest amount of sulforaphane.

Broccoli sprouts contain a particular glucosinolate compound, glucoraphanin, which is found in vacuoles within the cytoplasm of the plant cell. 

The membrane of the plant cells also contain an enzyme, myrosinase, which is walled off from the vacuoles of glucoraphanin. 

Only when the plant cell is ruptured by cutting/chewing,. do the two substances come into contact with each other. 

In the moist environment of the cell, this leads to a chemical reaction wherein the myrosinase converts the glucoraphanin to an isothiocyanate, sulforaphane. 

It is also found in cruciferous veggies, such as brussels spout, cabbage, cauliflower, bok choy, kale, collards, Chinese broccoli, broccoli raab, kohlrabi, mustard, turnip, radish, arugula, and watercress.
