BHT and Its Benefits for You

Updated: Oct 2, 2020

If you have never heard of BHT before, you are not alone. Many people do not know what BHT is or how it could potentially benefit them and their health.

Finding out about BHT will help you to decide if this is something that you want in your diet and in your body.

Understanding BHT

BHT is short for butylated hydroxytoluene. It is a chemical that is not found in nature but was rather created in a lab. And while many people think that lab-created chemicals are all bad news, this is not necessarily the case.

BHT is primarily used as a preservative in food, helping food items to stay fresher longer. Many food items you consume likely have BHT in them.

BHT is a synthetic antioxidant. This means it can help to get rid of free radicals in the body which are chemical elements that damage cells. Antioxidants can also help boost the immune system. Add in a little St. Johns Wort as a catalyst and it delivers BHT more specifically.

What Can BHT Do for You

Aside from keeping your food fresh, BHT has a few different health benefits. Some of these may include

Influenza Fighting Properties

Influenza is a serious problem every year. Thousands of people die from the disease, and even if you get a flu shot, there is no guarantee that you will not come down with influenza. It can be a horrible illness to come down with and can wreak havoc on your health.

As such, you want to do everything you can to prevent and treat the flu. BHT can help. It has antiviral properties specific to influenza’s viral type. It weakens the outer lipid coating keeping the white blood cells from fighting it.

With Covid19 - BHT and Vitamin C and St. Johns Wort is not a vaccine, but it is a way to boost your fight and lessen the effects.

Herpes Treatment Properties

In addition to having antiviral properties that can help fight the flu, BHT can help to fight herpes outbreaks. Some people, for example, that get cold sores apply BHT directly to the site of the cold sores.

This can help to resolve cold sores more quickly and effectively.

Additionally, a BHT supplement can be taken to preventively deal with herpes viral infections. This can help lessen and then stop outbreaks to help reduce the viral load in the body at any given time.
