What is BHT?

Though most commonly known as a preservative, butylated hydroxytoluene or BHT, is a potent antioxidant whose occasional poor press belies its history as a well-known health supplement.

Tremendously useful for preventing fats and oils from going rancid during transport or storage, BHT performs much the same function in the body, preventing damage to your cells, organs and tissues.

While traditional criticisms of BHT have focused on its use as a food additive, they ignore its long record of safe use; BHT has been used in food production since the 1940s with no measurable ill effects.

What is BHT used for?

In fact, BHT has been used to treat viral infections since the 1980s, a method popularised by the publication of John A. Mann’s and Steven Fowkes’s groundbreaking Wipe Out Herpes with BHT.

Since then, it has been trialled in a wide range of medical applications as everything from an anti-cancer drug to a treatment for the prevention of birth defects in diabetic mothers. Some studies have even suggested it can help protect the brain from alcohol damage.

How does BHT work?

BHT is a powerful preservative — that’s why it’s used in food products — but this preservative effect also has positive consequences for health. By preventing oxidative damage (the same process that rots a piece of fruit or rusts a steel pipe), BHT mitigates damage to the body, increasing overall health and reducing the impact of illness.

Part of BHT’s potency has to do with its ability to eliminate lipid-enveloped viruses such as herpes by disrupting their membranes, making them vulnerable to the immune system and impairing their ability to penetrate human cells. BHT has also been shown to function alongside butyric acid, boosting the health of intestinal mucosa and potentially treating immune-mediated bowel disease.

Why take BHT

If you’re on the hunt for a supplement that can reduce the harm caused by dietary oils, detoxify your body and improve your health, it’s time to consider BHT. Why suffer from the harmful effects of a heavily processed, oily diet when the solution is only a few drops away?
