Tryptophan

Tryptophan is one of my favorite supplements. It is rare to find something that helps such a large percentage of people with a very strong and pronounced effect. Most of the specifics I discuss on the blog generally help a small number of sufferers and require a long supplementation, for example, omega 3, which is … Read more

CLA – Conjugated linoleic acid

One of the the most interesting dietary conundrums I’ve encountered. Basically, every study that has been done with it has shown some kind of positive effect – you could say it’s good “for everything”.

Dandelion and cancer

Not long ago, information circulated on the Internet that dandelion root cures cancer. A matter as old as the world, I read about it more than 10 years ago, but now some new research has come out and the world has gone crazy. Many people face the prospect of looking for an alternative cure – … Read more

Evening primrose oil

It is appropriate to begin this entry by introducing the profile of David Horrobin. This gentleman once famously sold evening primrose or borage oil, which he advertised as a cure for almost everything.
