Selenium for Glutathione and Antiviral Effects

The first two words that come up to my mind when I hear selenium are: glutathione and antiviral. Exactly those two things I consider as major advantages when it comes to selenium supplementation not just in psoriasis. It is a well known fact that selenium and vitamin E are very important as antioxidants. Researchers proved that deficiency in any of those two nutrients results in increased viral pathogenicity and improper immune response. Selenium or vitamin E deficiencies can even cause...

There may be some differences what to add to the treatment but the main idea of healthy food (unprocessed food) and supplementing missing...

Bile Acids Toxicity, Endotoxins and Leaky Gut

Psoriasis is easily cured in many people by improving bile flow with bile acids supplements like Ox bile, Artichoke Leaf Extract and Lecithin. Those who have studied some research data about the bile acids know that there are a lot of unanswered questions about the acids produced and excreted by liver. Generally all bile acids are considered toxic for the body and even carcinogenic. However the best option seems to be the ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) also known as Ursodiol. This...

If there is (mostly) in the small intestine the bacterial overgrowth due to low digestive enzymes and bile flow then bacteria can feed on those complex saccharides you eat and proliferate. Small intestine is not designed to host so many bacteria (and of those species) as there are in SIBO. Small...
