Quoting your article, "Some may be concerned because BHT is man-made. Not everything that is man made is dangerous. Indeed, plenty of “natural” substances can be highly toxic." Apparently, BHT has been found to be created by fungi that grow on olives. See: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/ejlt.201600343 So... its a natural compound, humans found a way to synthesize it, just like the fungis did.
Mouth Ulcers Gone :-D
I used to have a lot of trouble with mouth ulcers, this was an ongoing issue for 10years or more. Anytime I bit my lip or cheek, or even just a minor abrasion to the lining of my mouth, and I would be guaranteed to get a mouth ulcer. Tried the usual antibacterial type remedies such as topical peroxide, iodine, bicarb, salt, rinsing with alcohol. That stuff didn't work for me though. In the end my ulcers turned out to be caused by a virus (maybe a strain of HSV), and a potent anti viral called BHT worked for me - from what I read it only works for lipid-coated viruses (fortunately the majority of viruses are lipid coated! ). I took about 500mg of BHT twice a day and that fixed it. And by fixed I mean I'm practically cured, as I don't need to take a maintenance dose of BHT to keep the ulcers away. 500mg worked, but maybe 250mg would be fine too, but I know that taking 1000mg in one dose was too much for me to handle as I would get some pains in my tummy (possibly liver struggling to metabolise it).. That only lasted an hour or so.
Hi. I don't have hep C or any health problems but I have been intrigued by all the BHT posts and thought I would try it for its antioxidant properties.
It's been 4 weeks since I started taking one 350 mg cap first thing in the morning either with water or ACV. I knew it was working because right away I broke out in small pimples and my skin got "greasy" and more oily than usual. This is what happens to me when I first start fasting, so I knew I was detoxing. Everything went back to normal after a week and now my skin is REALLY nice and soft and getting better everyday. The rough soles of my feet started to peel off (how weird! ) and so did the rough dark patches on my elbows. My skin also smells nice, almost like that of a baby!
The most shocking thing is my digestion. For years I have been emptying by bowels twice a day (with this "urgent" feeling) and suffered from extreme gas no matter what I ate. The gas is now COMPLETELY gone, and although I'm only going to the bathroom now every other day that is completely fine by me because the cleanup is not messy and I don't feel constipated at all... and I eat extremely healthy (vegetarian with lots of raw foods and the occasional fish, nothing fried, lots of brown rice, no processed food, etc).
Just thought I would share. This has been such an interesting and unexpected discovery to me! Take care everyone and good luck!
