Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT)

[ byoo-tuh-ley-tid hahy-drok-see-toh-loo-een ]

BHT (Butylated hydroxytoluene) is a potent antioxidant that had been found to be effective in treating a number of viral conditions including hepatitis B & C and lipid-coated viruses such as herpes and even Glandular Fever.

A paper published in the Journal of Science showed that BHT could inactivate the Herpes Simplex and other lipid-coated viruses.

This is due to BHT being approved by the FDA as a food preservative and not a medicine, it is difficult to perform human trials. Furthermore, BHT is an inexpensive and common substance that is unpatentable. This means that no pharmaceutical company will invest money into research, trials, or certifying it as a medicine.

Based on early studies, some individuals with the Herpes virus began to experiment with BHT, using doses between 250-3000mg per day. The results revealed a reduction in outbreaks, other participants' outbreaks remained suppressed for as long as they continued the dose and some were able to discontinue the course with no recurrences.

BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) works against the virus by disrupting the lipid membranes, in turn making them vulnerable to the immune system and damaging their ability to penetrate human cells. BHT also eliminates the binding proteins that the virus uses to pierce through cell membranes. Acting as an antioxidant, BHT neutralizes free radicals that damage cell membranes and cause inflammation.

BHT usually comes in capsule form.

During the research, they received complaints from people who were taking BHT on an empty stomach and weren't receiving any beneficial results in minimizing or eradicating outbreaks. Although when pre-dissolving it in fat or oil and taking it with fatty foods the participant's symptoms drastically improved.

Dissolving BHT in Fat:

Any vegetable oil will dissolve BHT, it is suggested using coconut oil due to its high saturated fat content and a BHT coconut oil mixture has a longer shelf life.

Open one capsule and add its contents to cooking oil or oily food such as peanut butter. Use your oil of choice e.g. Olive oil, Sunflower oil, vegetable oil etc, ; stirring will help it to dissolve faster. Taking BHT in this way helps to get the contents to absorb into the body more efficiently.
