Here you can find the strongest tactics science has to offer in overcoming and improving chronic disease.
Oxymatrine has shown to have anti-arrhythmic, immune regulatory, and anti-tumor properties and is used in China for treatment of viral hepatitis, cancer, cardiac diseases (such as viral myocarditis), and skin diseases (such as psoriasis and eczema). R
In this post, we will discuss the many benefits of oxymatrine, its natural sources, and its mechanisms.Read More
KIOM-79 is a potent AGE-abolisher and may improve eysight.
In this post, we will discuss the benefits of KIOM-79 and an alternative way to source its ingredients.Read More
Embelin suppresses cancer, combats inflammation, ameliorates autoimmunity, and destroys many infectious agents.
It also has anti-diabetic, anti-obesity, neuroprotective, and cardioprotective protective effects.
In this post, we will discuss the MANY benefits of embelin, its natural sources, and some synergies of embelin.Read More
Wrightia tinctoria is medicinal plant that can improve skin quality and prevent metabolic disease.
In this post, we will discuss its benefits, how to use it, and it's medicinal mechanism.Read More
Paraoxonase 1 (PON1) is an enzyme that plays a role in most diseases.
In this post, we will discuss how you can use PON1 to improve overall health, longevity, and detox mechanisms.Read More
Recent data suggests that chronically low levels of circulating LPS may be associated with the development of metabolic diseases such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. R
In this post, we will discuss how LPS affects the body and how to reverse endotoxemia.Read More
In this post, we will discuss the benefits of Java (Orthosiphon stamineusis), my experience with Java, and where to get the best form.Read More
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).Read More
Amentoflavone Is Cool (AF) :D
Amentoflavone (AF) is a naturally occurring biflavonoid found in many (over 120) natural plants, such as Gingko Biloba and St. John's Wort.
Copaiba - A Legal Cannabinoid Alternative - Copaiba oil has been used for more than 390 years with benefits towards bronchitis, skin diseases, ulcers, and syphilis.Read More
In 1958, researchers looked at how each unique color affected organisms.
They found out that blue light could change the circadian rhythm of algae, and this was later found out to be true with humans as well.
Our understanding about blue light has increased and I have summarized what the literature shows to date.
Blue light is quite powerful and has the power to reset/disrupt our circadian rhythms, but if used and timed properly it may mitigate diseases like diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety, bulimia, schizophrenia, dementia, and Parkinson's Disease.
Some of the reasons (more explained below) is because blue light influences hormone secretion, heart rate, alertness, sleep, body temperature, and gene expression.Read More
In common day western society, we are consistently bombarded by artificial light.
Our workspaces are indoors, powered by fluorescent blue lights (which blue has its own negatives).
We only get sun rarely and it's either partial (such as through glass while driving to work) or too much (single sessions of long periods hanging out at the beach).
We also try to supplement for the sun by taking vitamin D hormone supplements, which is not as bioactive for creating the active form vitamin D.Read More
Histamine intolerance comes from an imbalance of eaten/produced histamine and ability to break it down.
Mast cells, food poisoning, histamine metabolism/liberators and more can exacerbate histamine intolerance.Read More
Preptin improves bone structure and regulates metabolism.
It can predict many diseases and helps regulate blood sugar, the skeletal system, and blood pressure.
Vaspin is your team player in obesity and inflammation.
Your body is constantly trying to keep homeostasis. In times of obesity and inflammation, your body (from fat cells) will produce vapsin as a compensatory mechanism to keep you "normal".Read More
Get Ride of Psoriasis and Improve Skin Health!
There is a lot of bunk material out there about psoriasis and how to treat it, so I want to effectively and scientifically tackle this autoimmune disorder.
Interleukin 8 (IL8 or CXCL8) is a chemokine produced by macrophages and other cell types such as epithelial cells, airway smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells.
IL-8, also known as neutrophil chemotactic factor, has two primary functions:
It induces chemotaxis in target cells, primarily neutrophils but also other granulocytes, causing them to migrate toward the site of infection.
It also induces phagocytosis once they have arrived.
Melatonin is more powerful in preventing cell death than vitamin E, glutathione, mannitol and vitamin C.
Compared to daytime, the body has 10-15x more melatonin in the blood at night.
Light can decrease melatonin production.
Age can also decrease melatonin production.Read More
