Food or supplement to counteract SOCS

Resolved Question:


My question is purely out of curiosity. I do not suffer from any disease but it is however of interest to me.

What food/supplements can be used to counteract the effect of SOCS (Suppressor of Cytoking Signalling, SOCS-2 in particular) as it is a protein that is involved in the negative feedback loop which attenuates GH and IGF-1 signalling via the inhibition of the JAK/STAT pathway.

I know that high levels of free fatty acids (accumulated from the effect of GH breaking down lipids) creates a negative growth hormone response, perhaps from the increased level of induced insulin response, but that may work via a separate mecahnism, I'm more interested in SOCS suppression.

Your response would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry I could not find any information on food items that could counteract SOCS-2. I did discuss with the team , but unfortunately we will not be able to help in you this regard.

You can get a full refund. Please drop an email request to [email protected]
Alternatively you can keep the consult indefinitely open in case you need it later for other medical queries.

Sorry for the inconvenience
Thank you
