Defender with CBDa plus Botanicals

How does our body normally defend against a virus like COVID or other foreign invaders?  We have a very logical defense system called our immune system.  This system works in a predictable fashion but can be rather complex in its bouquet of resources.  If we look at the resources (things like leukotrienes, cytokines, IL’s, TNF’s) things […]

CBDa CBGa THCa Influences ACE2

A new study published in the Journal of Natural Products is causing a stir in the cannabis world.  The study, entitled “Cannabinoids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV‐2 and the Emerging Variants” is a look at how cannabinoids affect the entry point of SARS-COV-2 (Covid) and the early variants.  The entry point for Covid is well known […]

Gut Health

The mammalian microbiome is fascinating.  Almost any fatty acid mediator that we need to run our minds or our bodies can be built by bacterial processes in the gut biome.  Most researchers agree that the gut biome RESPONDS to the environment.  Most researchers would also agree that bacteria and pathogens are responsible for almost every […]

Autism Under the GnuPharma Model

Red Wine, Melatonin and the affects on Sleep

The deeper Gnupharma dives into diet and human function, the more we realize how very little we know about how we really work.  What is that fast food cheeseburger or that glass of red wine really doing to you? So let’s discuss sleep a little.  Sleep is necessary for mammals and other life on the planet.  […]

Stop Eating Corn Syrup

I live an interesting life.  I read research papers everyday.  Research into human function, how we work, how we store nutrients, how we fuel our magnificent bodies.  Well, I can 100% tell you this, we have been misinformed about how we work.  Whether on purpose, or by confusion, or by overload…we have been misled. So, […]

Metabolism & Autism

Because autism is a very complex disease, it requires the autistic individual to “evolve” in order to survive.  Without the capacity to build anti-inflammatories from fatty acids, the autistic individual is forced to adapt through changes in the production of short chain fatty acids in the gut which help with inflammation.  While this change saves […]
