Thunbergia Laurifolia is a traditional herb in Thailand that has a variety potential benefits.
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).
In this post we talk about what "fake" estrogens (estrogenics) do to the body and how you can protect yourself from the dangers of estrogenics.
Right now as I write this, I am watching the morning sun, sitting on a bench in Dolores Park with my shirt off an laptop out - in 50ºF weather!
Last night I had no sleep as I just traveled from FL to CA and helping my brother pack until 4am… and I woke up around 5am (8am my normal time… thanks jetlag).
That’s why I believe today’s topic of discussion should be circadian rhythm cues, also called Zeitgebers.
Zeitgebers (the German word for “time givers”) are signals that help synchronize the body's circadian clock with the environment.
In this post, we will discuss the most common zeitgebers, how they affect our circadian rhythm, and how we can use them to enhance our sleep, stress, weight, social life, and more.
Spilanthes is a genus of plants that have major potential as an aphrodisiac and anti-aging tool.
In this post, we will discuss spilanthes, the benefits of its bioactive components, and where to get it.
Herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases which can affect multiple organ systems including the lips and genitals.
In this post, we will discuss herpes (HSV-1 and HSV-2), how it affects the body, and the best ways to counteract/prevent infection.
Catuaba is a powerful plant that can improve depression, anxiety, fatigue, and more.
In this post, we will discuss the different forms of Catuaba (true vs non-true catuabas), the benefits of catuaba, and dosage of catuaba.
Cyclooxygenase (COX), officially known as prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase (PTGS), is an enzyme that is responsible for formation of prostanoids, including thromboxane and prostaglandins such as prostacyclin.
Suvorexant is a dual-orexin receptor antagonist that improves insomnia.
In this post, we will discus a brief, technical basic explanation of activation and detoxification - two major mechanisms in oxidative homeostasis.
In the future, I will update this post with more references, a MOA section, genetics, and clearer plans of action.
