BHT Side Effects

Posted by Fiona (Tustin,ca) on 10/19/2013

I was massaging with BHT and oil and took a bath. About an hour later, I was sweating (especially palm and bottom of my feet) crying and anxious... I knew this was detox symptom. And then I remembered I just bought kosher collagen. and they say collagen reduce anxiety.

It did. I mean right away.

I will probably be easy on BHT. I used about half cup massaging my body. Obviously it was too much.

In trying BHT, I also figured that maybe I was dificient of collagen. No wonder I suffered arthrities in the past. Thank you all who posts here.

I appreciate your sharing. I will also update the progress..later. Good luck.everyone.

The heat of bathwater might have facilitated transport through your skin, or volatilized the BHT into vapor which you could have breathed in through your lungs. Lungs have an incredibly high surface area and can absorb things quite efficiently. This is why nebulizers are so popular for certain kinds of drug delivery.

Lung-related side effects of BHT are observed in mice. Their lungs are particularly sensitive. Although lung sensitivity is not seen in rats or other mammals, nobody has ever tried testing BHT as a vapor delivered via warm humid air in a bathtub where the air might have been stratified to maximize lung absorption.

I'm not clear from your post whether you used a half-cup of BHT or a half-cup of BHT dissolved in oil. A half-cup of pure molten BHT would be about 100 grams of BHT, of which 3% absorption could cause temporary liver toxicity and possibly even hallucinations. Could you clarify this for me?

I use BHT vapor to preserve my coffee, and I used it many decades ago to preserve marijuana. This is written up in my BHT book, the link is posted in an earlier posting.

BHT Vs Monolaurin

Monolaurin - a Safer Treatment Than BHT for Lipid Coated Viruses?

I am giving this monolaurin my attention. I just recently posted a discussion about how I think [ do NOT know with certainty ] BHT works to destroy the lipid coatings of lipid coated viruses.

If I am right about that [ a BIG if ], it does follow that the same forces I discussed would be at work with the monolaurin.

Think of it this way: BHT and its metabolites are like a granular shaped molecule rapidly spinning about rapidly and grinding through lipid coatings.

Monolaurin is a rod like molecular entity rapidly teeter tottering and spinning about in these same lipid coatings. A different shape doing the same thing. Tearing apart said lipid coatings.

Both BHT and monolaurin are lipid seekers and for the same reasons. Relatively [ compared to water ] nonpolar entities. Whereas water is VERY dipolar. Everything is relative.

What is so very different about monolaurin compared to other lipids? It is a zig zagged but straight line overall. A rod like shape. Most lipids have a head group that is dipolar and two or three so called tail groups.

Also and importantly monolaurin`s dipolar head group is 6 atoms long. significantly longer than most lipids with two [ O-H ] hydroxy groups. As I explained in my earlier posting: When an oxygen atom is bonded to a hydrogen atom the [ O-H ] group has partial electric charges that compel it to move about very rapidly.

And monolaurin is a component of human mother`s milk.

I do NOT know about dosages of monolaurin. Some feedback from those who do would be appreciated by me.

Jay, are you out there ? Any who knows about monolaurin dosages please reply. Oscar

Hi Oscar,

I don't know if this is what you are asking, but my capsules of monolaurin contain 600mg of monolaurin and 7.5mg of inosine. The directions say to take one or two capsules with meals or as directed by a physician.

Who else but you could figure out this inter-relationship between these two supplements and save so many lives? I know you like to downplay your education, but your brilliant mind speaks for itself. If the medical community doesn't recognize your contributions, at least take comfort in knowing the Earth Clinic family DOES, and we know the importance and healing power of your research and appreciate all your efforts! Take care and may God bless you for all you do for others.

Dear Rsw [ Uniontown, Ohio ]. Thank you for responding. The manufacture`s recommended dosage does seem a good way to go with that what is a mixture. 600mg of monolaurin with 7.5mg of inosine. Is this a tablet or an oil filled capsule ?There must of been a reason for combing the two. I am totally new to this monolaurin stuff.

Again, the manufacturer`s recommended dosage seems a very good place to start. Thank you for helping out with this one Rsw, ...Oscar

Hi Oscar,

The monolaurin is a capsule that appears to have a white, loose powder inside. The brand is Ecological Formulas. It does say on the back " Manufacturing methods incorporate special delayed release properties, " if that is of importance. Other ingredients are Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate.

I do not understand why monolaurin is not included in the list of products for use against covid. I have been taking 9gm per day for the last year. It strips the lipid envelope of viruses in much the same way as bht. I don't know if one is better than the other or not.

When I began taking it, the Herx reaction was brutal, and I had to stop. After I recovered, I re-started, but increased the daily amount more slowly. I still had a bad reaction. Finally, I took just one pellet and increased by one pellet per day, until I reached the 9mg level. That is three scoops of the brand I use. I choose to work up to that amount simply because it seems to be the maximum dose among people who use it.


Edit: When I wrote 9mg, I meant 9gm. The brand is Inspired Nutrition.

For Cold Sores, try BHT.. butyl hydroxy toluene..... Has to be mixed with a fat of some kind to break it down and have it stored in the lymphs it worked for me at the first signs and in less than a day, next day I had the slightest of a skin scab where the blister was then gone my dose was 1/8 teaspoon on a piece of buttered toast twice a day the tingling cold sore stopped tingling within a few hours... BTH is used for the preservation of food stuffs and other more exotic things. Let me know if you try it and if it works for you please.

Oscar's recent BHT post on anti-aging reminded me that I forgot to write in about BHT for viruses. I started to get a cold/flu/something twice over the past 6 months. Both times I took just 1/2 capsule of 350 mg BHT in a half glass of water. By the next day I was fine, no symptoms. Awesome. Thank you, Oscar!

This is to Oscar from Syracuse, New York: I would like to ask a question, I have plan to use BHT for the GW, but the problem is I can't find BHT capsules in my country. But I can get access to the bulk of BHT like pounds of it... funny!

Is there a simple way of measuring it like for 250 mg or 350 mg, for instance using fraction of teaspoon or so? Thanks for helping.

Dear Dimahfromme, If you live in the USA the measured capsules of BHT should be available. But I will answer your question: 1/8th of a TEASPOON of BHT = about 350mg of BHT. Now for all those buying BHT in bulk you NEED an accurate measuring device. Here is one company that sells them and I am sure there are others. Here is a link one such company:

Hepatitis B as it was with C? I already bought a bottle of 250mg 500 capsules from How much dosage/capsule(s) should I take per day. How long before I can get the undetectable results? Also, I brew my own Olive Leaf Extract water which also is effective against the virus, can I take BHT and push it down with OLE instead of regular water or does it really have to be water? Also, can I drink OLE right after BHT or do I have to wait an hour? Thanks for the feedback.

Posted by Art. (Vancouver, Bc Canada) on 02/21/2012

HI Oscar! I have a couple of issues with taking the BHT, not serious but maybe they should be addressed for those of us who need the know if anyone can answer them.

I have been wondering about the one hour before or after eating upon taking the BHT. I have started to wait longer because I have a slow digestive system. I know this because my pain meds do not work well until two hours after I eat. So for some of us we have to extend that time period from one hour to two and a half hours. So I find it best to take it around 3-4pm while I am having my afternoon coffee. I know it is working because I feel more like my old self before I started the pegetron therapy. I find I have more energy now and don't tire as easy as I used to. The thing is since I have started taking it with coffee I am getting high anxiety in my chest the next morning around 7am. I can deal with it as I know what is happening so I use acupressure on my wrist which helps to calm me enough to get another hours sleep. We shall see how long this keeps up as I only take one 350mg cap in the afternoon. Taking a second one makes me dizzy while I am in bed, which brings me to my second issue.

I read somewhere that it stays in your system for 14 days. So taking 350mg x 14 = 4900mg or 490 grams in the body before it starts to flush it. This does not alarm me but does beg the question about saturation of the body. So taking two a day would double this to near 1000 grams. I know that when I was on the pegetron my doctor told me it would take my body 5 years to flush it all out as it is stored in the fat cells. I have to believe he was right because it took 5 years to feel normal again and escape the foggy brain syndrome. Now I feel sharper and my memory is improving. I am anxiously awaiting my next ALT test numbers which will be done in a month or two. My numbers have been all over the place for the last 5 years because of the ibuprofen use I suppose. Now I take nearly none since starting the BHT. I have been on it now since 20/Jan12

I have joined the yahoo group bigmac68 but can't figure out how to post there. Posting here is so much easier.

Thanx, Art. 1a.

Replied by Oscar

Dear Art from Vancouver, I very much understand and share your concerns about BHT therapy. This is why I always recommend that anyone trying this therapy come up with a dosage they are comfortable with. Start with a low dose and work up to no more than two 350mg capsules per day for most people. If that is too much take less. These capsules are easy to open up and you can split the dosage in half or less if you need to.

And yes, BHT and its metabolites do end up stored in fat tissues and other tissues also for up to two weeks. But this BHT is constantly being metabolized and excreted also. So you DO NOT end up with 2 weeks worth of BHT and it`s metabolites being accumilated in two weeks. The same is true for certain vitamins also. A general rule is that the water soluble vitamins such as vitamin C are quickly metabolized and work their way through a person`s body in a very few days and that the oil or fat soluable vitamins such as vitamin E take a week or two to work their way through a person`s system. BHT is similar to vitamin E in that way. I think this is a part of the answer as to why even low dose BHT therapy works. So find a dose you are comfortable with and stay with that. You want enough of what is the metabolites of BHT in your body to readily destroy these viral particles in your blood and inter-cellular fluids. You do not want more than what your body can safely handle and this does vary from person to person.

From the feedback available thin or lean people tend need less BHT and are those most prone to side effects. So find a dose you are comfortable with and stick with that dosage. It will work. It may take a bit longer and maybe it will not take any longer. Low dose BHT therapy worked for me and I weighed 175 poubds when I first started this treatment back in 1997. I was only taking one 200mg capsule of BHT per day. I was lean but not thin back then.

Checking in at day 47, I think, of BHT 350mg twice daily. I am not getting any blood work for another six weeks so I have no updated numbers to offer. Some days are better than others but as a whole I feel stronger and healthier week by week. I keep my fingers crossed every time I go to the bathroom hoping not to see dark urine or light stools. It's a bit of a roller coaster ride and I'm in no way convinced completely it's going to work, but it's hard to deny that something very positive is going on. My virals dropped almost 80% in the first 30 days and I feel better now than I did then. Hope it bodes well. Good luck to everyone. Thank you Oscar. Dave

Thank you Dave from Wayne, NJ for your kind remarks and your very valuable feedback. It is only with such feedback that me or anyone else will be able to answer the important issues regarding the use of BHT to treat hepatitis C and other viral diseases. Issues such as what is an effective dose and what are the side effects that some experience.

Now my experience as I experienced it with the use of BHT to treat hepatis C is very much the same as yours. There were times I noticed my urine would at times appear darker than what is normal in those first 2 to 3 months of treatment. But after about 3 months of the BHT treatments my urine was and still is always normal.

It does take differing periods of time for the different people using the BHT treatment to have consistantly normal liver function. From my experience as time goes by any and all symptums dissappear within a very few months. I had a very diseased liver and you did also. Thank you for your updates Dave. With your feedback and that of others we WILL answer these questions and come up with some valid guide lines as to the use of BHT for hepatitis C and some other viral diseases also....Oscar

Well, the BHT seems to work very well for some people for genital warts and not very well for some others. This is not surprising because there are over 40 variants of HPV virus, the virus that causes these warts. The dose that seems to work best is 350mg of BHT taken twice a day. There is a long thread that discusses all this here in this forum here:

Angie, you cannot get rid of lipid-enveloped viruses like herpes and EBV. They stay with you for the rest of your life. The average person has more herpes genomes in their body when they die than human genomes.

We live with viruses. Everybody lives with viruses all the time. Some people have flare-ups and others not. The trick is to change from somebody with flare-ups to somebody without flare ups. Some people have chronic viral load, and the trick is to make your virus dormant, so it just sits there, inactive.

So the answer to your question is that the switch from being troubled by viruses to not being troubled is not a matter of time. It's a matter of decreasing your viral susceptibility and encouraging viruses to become less virulent. BHT might help you do that. And vitamin A, selenium, sunlight, St. John's wort and hydrogen peroxide might help you as well.

The art of the matter is figuring out why each of use has viral susceptibility. For some, it could be estrogen dominance. For others, heavy metal toxicity. Leaky gut syndrome. Hypothyroidism. There are many ways that aerobic metabolism (energy production) can wane in us. Use of drugs, living in a toxic environment, eating the wrong foods, being unhappy, feeling helpless--it spans the gamut from the physiological to the psychological.

The Revici model of metabolic balance puts viral susceptibility at one extreme, either anabolic-anaerobic-alkaline dominance or catabolic-aerobic-acidic deficit. You can read about this in the BHT Book, a free PDF download from

I'm pretty sure that Ayurvedic theory has its own constitutional types that pose increased and decreased susceptibility to viruses. Likely traditional Chinese medicine as well. Maybe somebody can also weigh in on homeopathic approaches to energy balance.

I have little expertise in Ayurveda and TCM. But can talk about BHT and other antiviral vitamins, minerals, nutrients, foods, etc. I hope this does not discourage you from trying to figure out why you have chronic EBV or periodic herpes flare-ups.

Fatty Liver

Posted by Debbie (Melbourne, Australia ) on 03/05/2012

Oscar, I thought you might be interested in this study done with supplementing rats with both BHT and BHA, and absorbic acid and synthetic Vitamin E.

"ABSTRACT The purpose of this work was to determine the effects of two synthetic

antioxidants, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), dZ-o-tocopherol and ascorbic acid on the fatty liver and on the renal and cardiovascular systems of choline-deficient rats. Weanling and 6-week-old male rats were fed casein- peanut meal diets devoid of choline for 8 and 10 days, respectively. Survivors were fasted and then killed, and tissues collected for serum and liver lipid analyses and for morphologic assessment of tissue damage. Fatty liver, hemorrhagic kidneys and cardiovascular damage characteristic of choline deficiency were observed in deficient animals of both ages. However, BHA and BHT protected rats in both age groups from heart and aorta damage and also prevented renal damage in the 6-week-old group. Mortality was decreased by tocopherol, ascorbate and BHA and BHT, but most notably by the latter two. In weanling rats all additives increased serum lipids and all except ascorbate decreased liver lipids. In 6-week-old rats serum lipids varied, whereas liver lipids were increased by tocopherol and ascorbate and decreased by BHA and BHT. We conclude that tocopherol and BHA and BHT tend to decrease the effects of choline deficiency on the liver, renal and cardiovascular systems whereas ascorbate enhances them. Possible mechanisms for the various effects are discussed."

Dear Debbie from Melbourne, Thank you for posting this interesting study. Yes, it is long past the time when people need to be looking into the toxicity of BHT and start looking into the very substantial evidence that BHT is in fact good for you if taken in sensible dosages. There are very real reasons why those BHT dosed mice live on average between 22% and 31% longer than undosed mice and this study you posted is further evidence as to way this is so. I was not aware of that study and I do thank you for posting it.

I just popped a BHT capsule after reading that article. I am of an age where I am concerned about my heart and I also only have one kidney.

The heart and the kidneys are the organs discussed in this study and BHT is shown to significantly protect those organs from choline defficient damage. I do think this one of the benefits associated with the so called " tert-butyl effect ". That is what is so very different about BHT and BHA also when compared to other anti-oxidants including vitamin E....Oscar

Hi Oscar, no worries. I have a question for you. I note that many people are saying their stools returned to normal color after taking the BHT. My son, who is 4 is having pale(ish) colored stools so he is obviously not digesting fats properly. I was wondering if you think it would be beneficial for him to be on some BHT? He is about 20 kgs. If you think it would be beneficial for him what dosage would I try him on?

... And this BHT just might be an excellent adjunct to the polyunsaturated fats becoming "peroxidised" by free radicals thus decreasing cell lifespan and increasing cancer risk. Again I refuse the "avoidance" stance and thereby loose the benefits of health oils like Evening Primrose, Borage, Flax, Hemp, Sun and Safflower. One can add the contents of x caps in x container of oil or simply take an oral dose 1x day to protect the healthy omega 3's, 6's as well as 9's in the diet; and this also allows the body to eat protein rich (particularly)red meats at least once or twice per week without an inflammatory response (i can actually notice the rise in inflammation the day after eating a beef hamburger the night before). I wouldn't attempt replacing Vit-E, A or the Carotenoids with BHT but I would try to find that perfect minimal daily dosage of each/all.

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: So... its a natural compound, humans found a way to synthesize it, just like the fungis did.

i was diagnosed with HBV 2012, I've been on milk thistle, carrot juice and lots of leafy greens and veggies and lots of dandelion tea. My enzymes have been significantly low and the viral loads has been less than 1500 over the years.


  • Very dark brown urine
  • Loss of Muscle mass
  • Digestive challenges
  • Weight Loss:from 80kg in 2012 to 69kg now (underweight)
  • Fibroscan read 8.0 late last year
  • cervical spondylosis

Please I need advice, would you recommend BHT for me?

Replied by Oscar
(Syracuse, New York)

Dear Byhisstripes from Lagos: I wish to begin my response by asking you :

1. How old are you ?

2. Are you male or female ?

3. How tall are you ?

The reason I ask these questions are to establish if you are under weight or not. Also fully 90% of all people over age 65 do have some degree of spinal degeneration.

But this dark urine is often but not always a sign of liver failure. There are other conditions that can cause dark urine. You really need to see a qualified MD [ Medical Doctor ] to get a qualified diagnosis.

But having said all that: I do not know of any reason you can not a least give the BHT treatment a try and hope for some improvement.

But do so with care and caution. Start and stay with NO MORE than 250mg of BHT per day and perhaps less. You should start with the lower dosages and find a dosage you are comfortable with and always lower the dosage if side effects occur.

On the upside of using BHT: I weigh about 200 pounds and have been taking 350mg of BHT with water on an empty stomach since 1997. As I stated so many times the BHT treatment as discussed by me did CURE me of both hepatitis B and C.

What I have NOT discussed previously is that: This BHT treatment has at the very least stabilized a spinal condition called scoliosis or curvature of the spine. This condition in me is a result of that old gunshot wound that caused so very much damage to my right side. Lost my right kidney and most of my liver along with the loss of and damage to the muscle tissues and even part of one rib.

The good news is: My spine has NOT gotten worse and is seems at least somewhat better than it was back in 1997. This is because BHT prevents so called " so called cross bonding ". In non-technical terms: BHT prevents stiffening up of scar tissues as you grow older. Or any and all tissues scarred or not. So it just may help you. I surely do hope it can help you. It seems worth a try. If it does not help you can always stop taking it for sure.

And for sure you should be doing theraputic exercises to help with the cervical spondylosis. Everyone NEEDS to do some exercise to remain or get healthy. Also drinking adequate amounts of purified water is very helpful for just about everything.

Also if hepatitis B is the cause of liver problems: The BHT treatment works best WITHOUT milk thistle and or supplements other than a standard multivitamin and mineral supplement . Vitamin C in doses of up to 500mg to as much as 1,000mg of vitamin C per day seem to not screw up the BHT treatment. Whereas many other supplements do screw up BHT`s ability to deactivate lipid coated viruses including hepatitis B.

So, in conclusion: If you choose to give the BHT treatment a try, keep it simple for best results. If the BHT works for you, you should see a rapid improvement in a few weeks or months. If NO improvement is experienced in 3 months the treatment is likely to NOT be working. Of course I hope it does work. But if does not work you need to look into OTHER treatments....Oscar

It's very unlikely I have other ailment other than HBV as I have blood work done every 3 months to monitor my well being including liver enzymes.My last Fibrosis scan though read 8.0 which may indicates scarring.

Dear Byhisstripes from [ Lagos ], Thank you for replying. I never hear back again from most of the people who ask questions of or to me. Please stay in touch with the EARTH CLINIC and ME by way of the EARTH CLINIC about all this.

On the upside: You are 5 years YOUNGER than I was when I first began using BHT to treat hepatitis C and B back in 1997. Being younger ALWAYS helps. There were and are reports by people who made remarkable recoveries from hepatitis B and C with the BHT treatment as discussed by me. I did have a very damaged liver as I stated.

What is left of my liver is now where my right kidney used to be. " The patient`s liver now resides in the renal fossa " is what a radiologist`s report does state.

So you have a lot going for you as compared to me when I first started my BHT treatment back in 1997. Just so you know: Within ONE MONTH of starting said BHT treatment my" liver function test panel " results were all but one in the NORMAL ranges. Also I tested NEGATIVE in that one month for hepatitis C with the hepatitis C RNA test.

It was years later that I tested NEGATIVE using the Hepatitis C and B antibodies tests. It takes some years to truly CURE one`s self of hepatitis B and or C infections using BHT as discussed. One person did test negative in less than one year, but that is NOT the usual pattern with the ANTIBODIES tests. You can and will be negative with the HEP B and or C RNA tests and still test positive with said antibodies tests.

Those viral load counts are a test of the blood ONLY. Said tests do NOT mean your liver is not infected. Even doctors seem to screw the meaning of those viral load count tests up.

From everything you have said to me: I do think the BHT treatment as defined by me is well worth a try for you.

Dear Byhisstripes [ Lagos, Nigeria ]. I have NO idea what that long list of blood test results means. What did the doctor who ordered those tests tell you the results indicated ?

It does seem to me your doctor is concerned about conditions including liver function but also some other condition or conditions.

You ordered the BHT. Once you get it and start taking the BHT I hope I can help you.

Are you also infected with MALARIA ? Many people living in Nigeria are and that is why I ask you that question.

But do NOT get discouraged even if you are. We had one person infected with both hepatitis B and malaria who made a remarkable recovery with the BHT treatment. As you no doubt know: Both diseases are common in Nigeria and surrounding areas.

Please do take whatever drugs and such your doctor is prescribing and when the BHT arrives take it as discussed by me. If you tolerate the 250mg of BHT well it might be advisable to increase the dosage to two 250mg capsules of BHT per day or every other day.

I do pay attention to your postings. But this long list of blood tests makes me concerned that some condition other than but including hepatitis B is being looked into by your doctor.

What is your doctor telling you ? ...Oscar

Thanks once again Oscar. She's concerned about being underweight hence the need for liver function, calcium and kidney test and they all came back good. Yes, so much malaria here but I'm not infected.

Thanks so much, Oscar.

Newbie who just found this site. I've read through Oscar's statements on his view of taking BHT with water but previously I had read Steve Fowkes book which referred to dissolving BHT in oil. While I accepted years ago that everyone's body is chemically different (Edgar Casey) which takes into account different reactions to substances. The ingestion methods between these two approaches has me questioning which is better?

So I was wondering if any others have used BHT and what method was used.. water or oil?

Additionally, with food or no food? As well as what vitamin supplements to stay away from when using BHT and any adverse affects which may have been recognized?

Well for now I'll be scanning the posts to expand my knowledge by others first hand experiences.

Thanks, JT

Hello, will BHT work for non-viral hepatitis complicated by end stage cirrhosis?

My father has end stage liver cirrhosis caused by Primary sclerosing cholangitis. and has recently been seen at the Mayo Clinic and they said his male score is 24 and not sick enough to get a liver. He has ascites and fluid that is now in his lungs and he's having to get it removed daily which is painful. IL hospital put a tube through his back to remove fluid that sits above his heart that's extremely painful, in which Mayo Clinic said would need to be removed and to consider A shunt. He has Non viral hepatitis, colitus and a large hernia above his navel which they said cannot be removed until he eventually can get a liver. Thank you.
