Low Dose Naltrexone
How does low dose Naltrexone work?
Levo-Naltrexone is an antagonist for the opiate/endorphin receptors. Increased endorphins modulate the immune response. This reduces the speed of unwanted cells growing. Dextro-Naltrexone is an antagonist for at least one, if not more immune cells. Antagonises “TLR,” suppressing cytokine modulate the immune system. Antagonises TLR-mediated production of NF-kB – reduce inflammation, potentially down regulating oncogenes. Taking Naltrexone in larger doses of 50-300mg seems to negate the immunomodulatory effect by overwhelming the receptors, so for the effect to work, the dose must be in the range of 0.5-10mg, usually maxing at 4.5mg through clinical experience.
