22:50 TNF = Tumor necrosis factor “Tumor necrosis factor is a cell signaling protein (cytokine) involved in systemic inflammation and is one of the cytokines that make up the acute phase reaction.” Wikipedia
29:32 THC = Tetrahydrocannabinol “the principal psychoactive constituent (or cannabinoid) of cannabis.” Wikipedia
30:30 CBD = Cannabidiol “is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis…is considered to have a wide scope of potential medical applications ” wikipedia
32:01 CYP450 = Cytochrome P450 “proteins of the superfamily containing heme as a cofactor and, therefore, are hemoproteins. CYPs use a variety of small and large molecules as substrates in enzymatic reactions. They are, in general, the terminal oxidase enzymes in electron transfer chains, broadly categorized as P450-containing systems.” wikipedia
34:10 NAC = N-acetyl-L-cysteine “a pharmacological agent, inhibitor of reactive oxygen species, used mainly as a mucolytic”
35:14 TH1/TH2 = T helper 1/T helper 2 “a type of T cell that play an important role in the immune system, particularly in the adaptive immune system. They help the activity of other immune cells by releasing T cell cytokines. These cells help suppress or regulate immune responses.” wikipedia
39:20 LDN = Low-Dose Naltrexone “Naltrexone is typically prescribed for opioid dependence or alcohol dependence, as it is a strong opioid antagonist.”
42:35 DHA = Docosahexaenoic acid “an omega-3 fatty acid that is a primary structural component of the human brain, cerebral cortex, skin, and retina.”
42:40 ACTH = Adrenocorticotropic hormone “a polypeptide tropic hormone produced and secreted by the anterior pituitary gland. It is also used as a medication and diagnostic agent.” wikipedia
42:42 TSH = Thyroid-stimulating hormone “ a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine (T4), and then triiodothyronine (T3) which stimulates the metabolism of almost every tissue in the body.”
42:43 T4/T3 = triiodothyronine (T3) and its prohormone, thyroxine (T4)
46:14 ADH = antidiuretic hormone, also known as vasopressin “a neurohypophysial hormone found in most mammals.”
46:50 APOE = Apolipoprotein E “a class of apolipoprotein found in the chylomicron and Intermediate-density lipoprotein (IDLs) that is essential for the normal catabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoprotein constituents.”
51:47 HPA = Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis “ a complex set of direct influences and feedback interactions among three endocrine glands: the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, and the adrenal”
57:25 CIRS = Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome
57:45 NK cells = natural killer cells “a type of cytotoxic lymphocyte critical to the innate immune system.”
57:50 CD57 = Galactosylgalactosylxylosylprotein 3-beta-glucuronosyltransferase 1, also known as B3GAT1
1:05:05 α-MSH = alpha-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone “an endogenous peptide hormone and neuropeptide of the melanocortin family, … the most important of the melanocyte-stimulating hormones (MSHs) (also known as melanotropins) in stimulating melanogenesis, a process that in mammals (including humans) is responsible for pigmentation primarily of the hair and skin. It also plays a role in feeding behavior, energy homeostasis, sexual activity, and protection against ischemia and reperfusion injury”
1:07:22 MMP9 = Matrix metallopeptidase 9 “a matrixin, a class of enzymes that belong to the zinc-metalloproteinases family involved in the degradation of the extracellular matrix.”
