How LDN Works

How Low Dose Naltrexone Works:

To start to comprehend how Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) works it is necessary for you to know about Endorphins. The body’s natural Endorphins create feel good opioids.

Most cells in the body produce Endorphins. It is theorized that low levels of natural Endorphins and immune system disorders are associated.

When you take low dose naltrexone (usually, 3.5-5 mg) in the evening the LDN blocks OGF receptors for a few hours. The blockage of the OGF receptor tricks the body into the release of more Endocrines. The result of elevated Endorphins is referred to as the, “rebound effect.”

Usually, the rebound effect lasts for a twenty-four hour period. However, the effects of LDN vary individually.

An individual can only utilize the “rebound effect” with the daily consumption of low dose naltrexone. The usage of a standard naltrexone dosage 50mg or the use of timed-release Naltrexone will result in the complete blockade of theOGF receptors. If the Opioid Growth Receptors become completely blocked, the “rebound effect” will not occur.

The, “Rebound Effect” from Low Dose Naltrexone may be able to help people with autoimmune diseases.
