BHT is an antioxidant and common food preservative, approved by the Food and Drug Administration for food, oils and fats. Since BHT is not a natural product, the FDA has prohibited its sale as a supplement (although approving its use in food as a preservative). Our BHT is therefore sold only as a food preservative.

With that said, over 25 years ago, a paper was published in the journal Science showing that BHT could inactivate herpes simplex and other lipid coated viruses in vitro (In lab dishes). This was followed by another paper published in Science showing that BHT could prevent chickens from dying of Newcastle disease. The herpes virus and the virus that causes Newcastles disease have a lipid envelope. That is, the nucleic acid core of these viruses is coated with a fatty membrane. Viruses of this type require an intact lipid membrane in order to penetrate cell walls and infect living cells. BHT appears to work against such viruses by disrupting their lipid membranes making them vulnerable to the immune system and imparing their ability to penetrate human cells. BHT also removes binding proteins that the virus uses to penetrate cell membranes. In addition, BHT acts as an antioxidant neutralizing free radicals that damage cell membranes and cause inflammation. It is believed that the destructive action of many pathogenic viruses involves the destructive action of free radicals on cellular membranes.

5 Stars Wholesale Nutrition is a quality online store
by a member from CANADA on Jul 16, 2015
  This is the very first time that I've ordered from this store. I lived in Canada so I was very surprised that I received my item very soon after I ordered it, around 6 days. The item was safely packaged and arrived in great condition. Will shop with you again. Thank you.

5 Stars BHT
by William Hennessy from Grand Marais, MN on Mar 29, 2015
  I have been ordering from Wholesale Nutrition for more than 10 years and have never had a problem with any of the product. I usually order BHT to slow down the aging process and so far it seems to be working.

3 Stars Review
by a member from Stockton, Ca USA on Oct 6, 2014
  I haven't taken BHT more than just a couple of times, just when I needed it. I'm not too sure about it because it is a food additive and not a natural vitamin. I've read many good reviews about it and many bad reviews. I'm not saying I won't continue to take it. I'm just gonna take it if I really need it. I'm really in to health and just want to be cautious. I did like the fact that when I put an order in it only too 2 business days to be shipped to my house :)
