Research on PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) has been focusing on mechanisms to control insulin resistance, androgen excess and hormonal signaling problems that are characteristic presentations leading to symptoms and complications. Is it possible that isomer forms of the vitamin Inositol are efficacious in PCOS? Research has recently been published demonstrating the effects of myo-inositol (as opposed

High Histamine Rollercoaster: Implications of This Potent Neuro-Immune Modulator

Histamine is a powerful molecule. When it is activated, it has numerous physiological effects through its various histamine receptors. Understanding the various roles that histamine occupies, confers new insights into the implications for dietary, immunological, gastro-intestinal, cardiovascular, endocrinological, neurological, and inflammatory mechanisms. 4 histamine receptors have been identified, and each exert different effects. Histamine is released by
