In early October 2012 Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is said to be releasing results of a human THYROID study using the dietary supplement Anatabloc. The study is funded in part by the Walton Family Foundation and is being performed in nine (9) clinical sites in Michigan, Texas, New Jersey, Illinois, and Florida.

The American THYROID Association

Falls Church, Virginia. Sep. 19, 2012 The American THYROID Association (ATA) today announced today announced it will honor Paul W. Ladenson, MD, of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, with the 2012 Lewis E. Braverman Award on Sept. 21 at the 82nd ATA Annual Meeting in Québec City, Québec, Canada. The Lewis E. Braverman Lectureship Award recognizes a member of the ATA who has demonstrated excellence and passion for mentoring fellows, students, and junior faculty and has a long history of productive THYROID research.

“While advancing his own body of research, Dr. Ladenson has become widely respected as one of endocrinology’s most thoughtful and trusted mentors, making him an outstanding choice for the 2012 Lewis E. Braverman Lectureship Award,” said ATA President James A. Fagin, MD, of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. “Countless fellows and trainees have benefited from the opportunity to work directly with Dr. Ladenson over the years and have gone on to assume leadership positions in the field of endocrinology at various universities, research institutes, and within the ATA.”

Dr. Ladenson holds several distinguished positions at Johns Hopkins University, where he is the John Eager Howard Professor of Endocrinology, and Professor of Medicine, Pathology, Oncology, Radiology and Radiological Science. He is also director of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism and a Distinguished University Professor.

Dr. Ladenson’s research interests include applications of THYROID hormone analogues for treatment of cardiovascular disease, novel approaches to THYROID cancer diagnosis and management, and health economic analyses related to THYROID patient care. Currently, Dr. Ladenson is investigating effects of the nutritional supplement anatabine on autoimmune thyroiditis.

Note that at a meeting at the Roskamp Institute ( in June 2011, Dr. Ladenson stated that, “aside from RCP-006 (anatabine – now Anatabloc™ at GNC) there is no known compound that stops thyroiditis.”

Evaluating the Dietary Supplement Anatabloc in THYROID Health-ASAP (Antabloc Supplementation Autoimmune Prevention)

Background of Anatabloc

If you’re not familiar with research history of Anatabloc™ here you go: A quick history of ‘tobacco’ research; in 2004 Dr. Paul Ladenson, Director of the Division of Endocrinology at Johns Hopkins conducted studies among a group of flight attendants and found reduction of thyroiditis / Hashimoto’s disease related to inhalation of second hand cigarette smoke.

Next in the timeline, Founder of Anatabloc Jonnie Williams determined that one of the 4000 chemicals in tobacco /nicotine, namely anatabine, reduced the urge to smoke. What Star found was that the anatabine-based compound had many/now hundreds, of other beneficial effects. A central part of the Anatabine (that evolved into Anatabloc™) narrative occured when Jonnie Williams wife developed severe THYROID disease facing serious THYROID surgery because of his advanced thyroiditis.

Famously devoted to her, Williams arranged for his wife to be treated by one of the top THYROID specialists in the world, Dr. Patrizio Caturegli. Caturegli studied with internationally known Italian endocrinologist professor Aldo Pinchera of the University of Pisa. Today, Caturegli is associate professor of pathology, endocrinology and immunology at Johns Hopkins.

William’s wife had already developed THYROID nodules. At that point, surgery was necessary and scheduled 30 days out. Williams told Caturegli about the anatabine supplement. Caturegli suggested that there would be no harm in her trying the product. She did. The fibrosis reversed and the surgery was canceled. Her condition has continued to improve, and Williams reports that she is completely free of the symptoms of THYROID disease.


Johns Hopkins later became very interested and they began their THYROID research. A surging accumulation of confirming data began to occur largely from the Roskamp Institute (, conducting research using anatabine on Alzheimer’s disease, gastroenterology, rheumatology, cancer, auto-immune diseases (lupus), and cardio-atherogenesis (the process of atheromatous plaque development in arteries), among other conditions.

About Anatabloc at GNC

Anatabloc® leverages the body’s natural process for regulating its own inflammation using anatabine, a naturally-occuring compound found in some plants, combined with Vitamin A and D3 to help the body to avoid excessive creation of inflammation. Pre-clinical studies have shown that this combination inhibits pro-inflammatory pathways, thereby helping maintain lower levels of inflammation.

Anatabloc is a dietary supplement for anti-inflammatory support of the immune system. Since many disorders, like coronary artery disease, diabetes, asthma, Alzheimer’s, and rheumatoid arthritis, are caused by chronic low-level inflammation, Anatabloc is a potential preventative treatment for these diseases.

Anatabine is a naturally-occurring alkaloid, found in eggplant, peppers, green tomatoes, tobacco, potatoes, and a variety of other plants and vegetables in the Solanaceae family. Anatabloc® stimulates a natural body process to promote a healthy inflammatory response.

What is Anatabloc®?
Anatabloc® is a supplement that contains 1 milligram of anatabine base, 500 units of Vitamin A and 40 units of Vitamin D3.

No prescription required
Because Anatabloc® is a dietary supplement, it does not require a prescription.

How often do I take it?
For best results take two tablets/lozenges three times daily

Few Testimonies on Anatabloc and Thyroid

So I armed my sis with a bunch of info to take to her THYROID doctor (where she was headed to get her next prescription for low performance THYROID)…told her she might have a tough time getting him to read it all but to at least ask what he thinks. She said he was shocked to hear that she knew about Antabloc/Anatabine because he has been in talks with Dr. Ladenson at Johns Hopkins to participate in a THYROID study–which she unfortunately didn’t qualify for (much to her chagrin, she was hoping to get the product for free) but for the study they are apparently looking for new patients who haven’t yet been treated…anyway, he recommended that she try it, and he would test her levels again in a month to see what kind of difference there was. Pretty COOL!! [My sis, who won’t take the dang time to read the info, has also been somewhat skeptical of this ”supplement”…while she surprised her doctor by brining it up with him, she was equally surprised by the fact that he not only knew about it but was also going to be in a study for it!! Guess BIG SIS knows what she’s talking about!!! WOOHOO!!! :)

Someone posted this here Lynn Oliver Just wanted to share some amazing results. I have been battling THYROID disorders for over 10 years. I am 50 years old eat healthy, exercise everyday 1 hour of cardio 6 days a week and weights. I have been told by 2 different dentists that my body is attacking the roots of my teeth.. hence autoimmune disorders as is THYROID disease. My past two blood results for my thryoid were as follows: thryoid antibodies normal is 0-60 U/ml. my first result was 2720.5 U/ml, several months later they were 3655 U/ml.. I started taking Anatabloc 10 tablets a day for 16 days. I already had an appointment with my Dr. and asked if she could retest me and explained what I’ve been taking. She just called me with my blood work… my THYROID antibodies are now 300 U/ml… In just 16 days they decreased 3,355 U/ml. please share this with your friends and family who have any autoimmune disorders.. ie thryoid, diabetes, arthritis… the list is endless.

My antibodies were 300 U/ml… WOW.. waiting for my blood results.. Next gave it to my daughter who was having panic attacks, slight depression.. she was on 6 a day and felt like she couldn’t sleep. She dropped her dosage to 3 a day and after one week called me and said ” Mom I actually feel happy”. She has since had only 1 panic attack that was very brief. she is 5’9” weighs 136 lbs. Now the mother in law has major OCD. I urged her to take it and she finally did. 3 a day. after about 1 week she spoke with me about how ”calm” she is, she does not need to check things. ie door locked, stove shut off etc.. we are talking about someone who needs an hour to leave her house!! Her words ” I can look at it and tell myself I don’t need to check it ” she is about 5’4” maybe weighs 130. Next up the hubby who would get up in the middle of the night 4-5 times to use the bathroom.. yes over 50.. got to love that prostate… he started taking 4 a day he is 6ft. weighs 222lbs. He is only getting up 1 time now. He is going to increase dosage to 6 a day to see if that will eliminate the 1 bathroom break so that he may get a full night sleep. will keep you posted

“Another item in closing: Eight years ago I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and have been treated for the disease since then. I just received my lab results back from my internist. My THYROID Stimulating Hormone test was 1.84, the lowest reading in 8 years and down from 6.29 (hypothyroidism) when I began my treatment. Since I began taking Anatabloc last year my TSH has fallen from 3.3 to the new low of 1.84.”

Well done.


I am taking 6 Anatabloc everyday for 1 full year and I have never felt better. I can attest to feeling a lot younger than my years. No doubt because all arthritis pain is gone from my hands and my hips. No more allergy symptoms either. I don’t know how that’s possible but it’s true.
It’s hard for me now to see someone and not think about how Anatabloc would improve their health and wellness as it has for me. The

Anatabloc works wonders in down regulating systemic inflammation by decreasing NF-kB activity better than any other pharmaceutical according to Roskamp Institute studies. WWWeb search “Diabetes NF-kB” and I think you’ll agree decreasing NF-kB signalling is a good thing giving your body a fighting chance at healing itself .

My sister has lupus and diabetes and reports that she has had lower blood sugar readings. She has only been on Anatabloc for a month and a half. Taking two at a time under the tongue is key and body weight is important to have many you take.

This is such an interesting series of posts on Anatabloc I thought I would share: From the Yahoo board: • a doctor’s opinion By drdlw2 . Mar 15, 2012 8:15 PM . Permalink I have been following the board for several months after being introduced to Anatabloc at the end of Novemeber. I have taken 6-8 per day and have made many interesting observations. Initally, after about 3-5 days I noticed that the variable amount of cervical neck pain I usually experience (a common affliction for microsurgeons) was diminshed about 50%. I also noticed my craving for caffiene, as… Read more »

I began taking Anatabloc after 6 weeks of Bronchitis that didn’t respond to any treatment. I thought if Anatabloc could eliminate inflammation, the production of mucus would be eliminated. Within 4 days all signs of Bronchitis and wheezing were gone and haven’t returned. I was amazed by the results.

My husband had thyroid cancer some time ago, and C. Everett Koop referred his family to Dr. Lewis Braverman!, now at Boston Univ Medical Center. My husband visits Dr. Braverman once a year, and has another endocrinoligist Beatrix Tendler at UConn Health. She attended this conference in Quebec and brought my husband’s file on the chance she might be able to discuss my husband with Dr. Braverman! My husband had an appointment with Dr. B Tendler yesterday and she told him what she discussed with Dr. B. I have to believe as this post says that the Quebec conference did… Read more »

Dr. Paul Ladenson of John Hopkins comment: “It is remarkable that dietary supplementation is able to help lower the thyroid antibody activity. To see antibodies that may have been elevated for years beginning to come down in a significant way after three months of supplementation is exciting. Given the rate of decline over three months, it is quite reasonable to expect that the effect may continue with longer use, which has already been observed in individual cases. I look forward to following subjects over a longer period in order to establish how profound and clinically meaningful the effect is going… Read more »

I had a ScandinavianTotal Ankle Replacement surgery in June, 2011. The sciatic nerve was damaged during the surgery. At the time of my six-week checkup, my foot was paralyzed. Portions of my sciatic nerve conducted no signal. I was not expected to recover, but was fitted with a brace for the “drop-foot” that I was told would afflict me for the rest of my life. I noted that a line of severe soreness and inflammation followed the route of the sciatic nerve and the nerves that branched from it near the ankle. Thinking the nerve might heal if I could… Read more »
A bit late [6/17/13] but having reordered Anatabloc today after 3 mos. off of it I will comment: I am a long time Chronic Fatigue sufferer [ from 4/16/1977] who has spent at least $20k on everything from Dr.Teitelbaum’s 111 recommended drugs, transfer factor and loads of anti-depressents and anti-anxiety meds [ after all most Doctors consider me nuts!] So having lost 2.5 years work up until age 60 and being totally disabled since 12/05/99] I expected nada, nothing when I accepted an 80 pill trial sample 3-5-13.

Ive been taking this for a month now because I read so many positive personal comments and reviews online and although there are plenty of skeptics, many of the skeptical comments however did disclose disbelief although these skeptics haven’t tried it–all conjecture.

Also I forgot to mention that I’ve been a smoker for 5 years and on my research through the world wide web, I’ve read smoking particularly affects women with thyroid problems *after* quitting smoking. Is it due to the fact that Anatabine is no longer taken into the body? What is your educated (critical researched based) opinion of this hypothesis?

C.R. Childress
Very interesting. Why people can’t quit with e-cigs is because they do not contain anatabine yet. Hopefully that will change soon. When you quit smoking male or female since you are no longer receving anatabine one could develop thyroid/graves disease or chrone’s /IBS. I have witnessed it happen. In the 1950’s and 1960’s Dr. Paul Ladenson of John Hopkins noted that airline stewardesses were not developing thryroid problems—reason anatabine from smoking in air. They just completed human thyroid test and anatabine by Dr. Ladenson. So here is my smoking pitch…. It is Anatabine in tobacco that calms, focuses, relaxes and,… Read more »
