What are the 14 powerful ingredients in EnvioShield?


aginate-ingredients

Sodium Alginate (Alginic Acid)

Alginate is a powerful detoxing agent, which can help rid the body of radio-active particles and other toxic elements of our environment; a sure fire way of assisting your body in ridding itself of those poisons. It has also been shown to have anti-tumor properties, enabling the body’s cells to reproduce at a healthy rate.

Alginate also captures Mercury, ensuring your body does not reabsorb is as it normally would, and allows you to simply excrete it instead. EnvioShield contains a very generous dose of this wonder nutrient, boosting its efficacy and benefits.



cysteine

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC)

N-acetyl-cysteine, commonly abbreviated to NAC, is a precursor of the antioxidant glutathione (GSH). NAC enhances glutathiones enzyme activity, promoting detoxification and reducing damage to cells, tissues and DNA.

NAC has been demonstrated to reduce blood lead levels in workers exposed to lead.

NAC has also been used for heavy metal poisoning including gold, silver, copper, lead and arsenic. NAC may form complexes with these toxins allowing them to be safely excreted. The mechanism of effect appears to be the chelation of the metal to the thiol group positioned on the NAC.



selenium

Selenium

Shown to be effective in shielding the body from dangerous lead and mercury contamination and poisoning along with other metals. Selenium has been shown to lower cancer incidence by 37% and even decreasing cancer deaths by 50%

The levels of Selenium in our blood are consistently negatively correlated with our adaptive behavior, motor performance, brain function, depression and even social behaviors. All these can be effected by inadequate levels of Selenium in our blood.


Natural enemies of bacteria, mold, yeast, and other pathogens


ginger root

Ginger Root Extract

Has been show to inhibit cancer growth, be anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, effective against asthma and allergies. One of the best supplements you can take for all health aliments. Ginger Root Supplement administered to volunteer participants reduced inflammation markers in the colon and nausea from chemotherapy within weeks.

Ginger contains a chemical that is used as an ingredient in antacid, laxative and anti-gas medications. Daily ginger supplementation reduces muscle pain in scientific studies.



oregano

Oregano Extract

Carvacol and thymol, two phytochemicals in oregano, are powerful antimicrobials. Research has shown essential oils from oregano may kill the foodborne pathogen Listeria and the superbug MRSA (making it a useful addition to hand soaps and disinfectants). Oregano contains beta-caryophyllin (E-BCP), a substance that inhibits inflammation and may also be beneficial for conditions including osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis as well as metabolic syndrome

Oregano extract has been found to significantly relieve symptoms “immediately” in those with upper respiratory infections. It even encourages sweat production as a mode of detox, and ingesting it may help your body to get rid of unwanted phlegm in your lungs.



pau d' arco

Pau D’ Arco

Used for generations to treat infections, reduce inflammation, promote digestion, strengthen the immune system, flush toxins from the body, protect against cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure.

Pau D’ Arco contains compounds which inhibit pathogenic bacteria while at the same time having no adverse effects on beneficial probiotic strains. Long promoted as treatment for dozens of illnesses due to its 20 different chemical compounds.


Immune System Boosters


gingko biloba

Gingko Biloba

Has been used for 1000’s of years as a homeopathic medicinal herb to treat a wide variety of health concerns. Well known for its treatment of immune disorders and longevity properties.

Studies have shown that Ginkgo Biloba supplementation is more effective at treating Alzheimer’s disease than the blockbuster drug Donepezil. Reduces oxidative stress and enhances mitochondrial respiration. Ginkgo has been shown powerful against Dementia, Gout, Glaucoma, Memory Enhancement, and Macular Degeneration.



potassium

Potassium

EnvioShield contains the perfect amount and form of Potassium which will be readily absorbed by your body to replenish low levels caused by increase uptake of Barium. Insufficient potassium may lead to chronic tiredness, muscular cramps, and fatigue.

Potassium keeps the skin healthy and sends oxygen to the brain. It decreases the risks of kidney stones and stroke. It also stimulates the kidneys to eliminate waste, thereby maintaining balanced water levels in the body.




Iodine

Iodine

Iodine is essential for your body. Essential in the production of thyroid hormones, low levels of Iodine is related to numerous diseases, including cancer.

Our food, water and consumer products increasing contain other halides such as chloride, fluoride and bromide. Iodine is outcompeted by these halides, preventing the formation of thyroid hormones.

Iodine-deficient breast tissue is more susceptible to carcinogen action and promotion of lesions earlier and in greater profusion.

Iodine pills have been distributed in Japan, and are one of the key therapies used for protection against radiation

Iodine supplementation alters the competitive halide-iodine relationship leaving the toxic halide now the blood to be passed on to the liver for excretion.



Milk Thistle

Milk Thistle

Silybum marianum (milk thistle) has a broad action on antioxidant defense, modulation of inflammation, and anti-cancer effects, it has been known mostly for its use in liver disease treatment and prevention; however, this herb is also protective of neuro (nerves), nephron (kidney) and cardio (heart) and blood vessels systems.

Many toxins are fat soluble and bile is the mechanism through which detoxification and excretion of these toxin occur. Milk Thistle helps keep the liver healthy for sufficient bile production. For example, Selenium binds with mercury to form a passive compound, but requires bile for this new compound to be excreted from the body.

Synthetic chemicals which mimic human hormones have been implicated in reproductive disorders and an increase in breast cancer incidence. The liver eliminates these endocrine disruptors through a binding process called sulfation.



Dandelion

Dandelion

Traditionally used for gallstones, joint pain, eczema and bruises. Dandelion also increases urine production and serves as a laxative to increase bowel movements. Increased bowel movements are beneficial for fighting bacterial infections within the digestive tract and reproductive organs.

Another advantage of increased urine production is the removal of some toxic metals. Aluminium is excreted via urine. So, kidney health is crucial for effective elimination of Aluminium and the other water soluble toxins.

Studies show that dandelion contributes to managing apoptosis (death) of cancer cells.


Powerful Antioxidants


coq10

Coenzyme Q10

Essential component of the mitochondria. Our cells simply cannot function properly without enough CoQ10. Low levels of this nutrient are linked to cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s, muscular dystrophy, breast cancer, diabetes, infertility, asthma, thyroid disorders, depression, fatigue and periodontal disease.

CoQ10 is one of the strongest anti-oxidants available. Patients with cancer often exhibit low levels of CoQ10,6,7 and researchers have shown that CoQ10 can increase immune response in humans. In one study, supplemental CoQ10 reduced migraine frequency by 27% alone!



vitamin C

Vitamin C

Levels of Arsenic in our environment are documented to be on the rise. As a result large doses of Vitamin C are an absolute requirement. Vitamin C has been proven to protect our cells from Arsenic toxicity which affects all our organs. Benefits of Vitamin C have been show to include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling.

Vitamin C makes the headlines when it comes to cancer prevention. Its antioxidant properties protect cells and their DNA from damage and mutation. It supports the body’s immune system, the first line of defense against cancer, and prevents certain cancer-causing compounds from forming in the body. Vitamin C reduces the risk of getting almost all types of cancer.



vitamin E

Vitamin E

Powerful antioxidant like vitamin c but works in different pathways to prevent the development of such things as cardiovascular disease and cancers. The right dose of Vitamin E has also been shown to protect the brain from long term oxidation caused by much higher levels of Mercury present all around us than ever before.

Vitamin E is also a powerful anti-inflammatory. Vitamin E’s antioxidant properties are also important to cell membranes. For example, vitamin E protects lung cells that are in constant contact with oxygen and white blood cells that help fight disease.Another widely known health benefit of vitamin E is in skin care and hair care. Owing to its antioxidant properties, vitamin E promotes the circulation of blood to the scalp. Vitamin E helps alleviate fatigue and strengthen capillary walls while nourishing the cells.

clinical studies


Potassium

  • Potassium is essential to the human body. You need this mineral for everything from processing ingested food sources, to controlling the electrical activity of the heart. This means that without adequate potassium, you may suffer from malnutrition, high blood pressure, and heart problems including palpitations and arrhythmia. Potassium ions cross the cell membranes, a process which is important to conduct nerve impulses, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythm.
  • Potassium keeps the skin healthy and sends oxygen to the brain. It decreases the risks of kidney stones and stroke. It also stimulates the kidneys to eliminate waste, thereby maintaining balanced water levels in the body. Besides these benefits, supplementing with Potassium restores alkaline salts to the bloodstream by neutralizing acids
  • Toxic elements, like barium, replace nutrient minerals in enzyme binding sites. When this occurs, the toxic metals inhibit, over-stimulate, or otherwise alter thousands of enzymes. Toxic metals may also replace other substances in other tissue structures, bones, and muscles. Toxic metals may also simply deposit in many sites, causing local irritation and other toxic effects.
  • The replacement weakens these tissues, such as the skeletal muscles [2], arteries and joints. Barium is one of those toxic metals which displaces the necessary nutrient Potassium, This leads to a dangerous loss of this essential mineral. Barium is very common available and known to adversely affect the heart.
  • A 2005 study conducted by Health Canada reported that a male between 40-64 years would be taking in 8.9 micrograms per kilogram of body weight EACH DAY, (7.8 micrograms for females) [3]

Selenium (Selenomethionine)

  • Here are just a few ways that selenium benefits your body [1]:
    1. Acts as an antioxidant defending against oxidative stress
    2. May help defend against cancer
    3. Boosts immunity
    4. Improves blood flow and lowers the chance of heart disease
    5. Regulates thyroid function
    6. Helps reduce asthma symptoms
    7. Can help boost fertility
  • Selenium has been shown to be effective in shielding the body from dangerous lead contamination and poisoning by forming highly bonded selenium-lead complexes, allowing for lead to be eliminated from the body rather than contaminating it [2].
  • Selenium is an essential component of glutathione peroxidase, which is an important enzyme for processes that protect lipids (fats) in cell membranes. Selenium is needed to fight oxidative degradation of cells and protect against mutation and DNA damage that can cause disease [3].
  • Selenium can also be thought of as an antioxidant. Selenium is found in high concentrations in the liver, spleen and lymph nodes; all detoxification systems of the body. Selenium is a critical element in the formation of enzymes and amino acid complexes involved in combating free radicals and regulation of immune functions.
  • Selenium based proteins are involved in the protection and repair of DNA.
  • Selenium chelates mercury to form a passive and very poorly soluble compound, which is then excreted through Bile. So, a well-functioning liver needed to produce bile is essential to carry mercury out of the body.
  • Adaptive behavior, motor performance, brain function, depression and even social behaviours are all affected by inadequate levels of Selenium in our blood.
  • Additionally, selenium may help decrease cancer incidence by 37%, even decreasing cancer deaths by 50% in patients suffering from lung, colon, and prostate cancer [4,5]

Vitamin C

  • Vitamin C plays a role in maintaining the health of the bodys connective tissue as well as acting as an antioxidant. The benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and evenskin wrinkling.
  • Vitamins C and E function as water-soluble and lipid-soluble chain-breaking antioxidants, respectively, and protect lipids, proteins, and membranes from oxidative damage. Vitamin C scavenges oxygen radicals in the aqueous phase, whereas vitamin E scavenges oxygen radicals within the membranes. Vitamin C regenerates vitamin E by reducing vitamin E radicals formed when vitamin E scavenges the oxygen radicals [1].
  • Scavenges free radical oxygen and Nitrogen species (ROS and NOX). High concentrations of vitamin C protect immune cell walls. vitamin C supports numerous aspects of both innate and acquired immunity including the production and function of leukocytes, while also enhancing cellular motility, chemotaxis, phagocytosis [2]
  • Vitamin C makes the headlines when it comes to cancer prevention. Its antioxidant properties protect cells and their DNA from damage and mutation. It supports the bodys immune system, the first line of defense against cancer, and prevents certain cancer-causing compounds from forming in the body. Its mechanism of action is as an antioxidant, scavenging free radical oxygen and nitrogen species. This activity is thought to protect neutrophils, phagocytes and lymphocytes from oxidation.
  • These protective effects against overwhelming oxidative stress in combination with other antioxidants offers a synergistic effect and seems reasonable during sustained critical illness. High-dose vitamin C, however, provides a cheap, strong and multifaceted antioxidant, especially robust for repair of the circulation and limit cellular injury [3].
  • Studies indicate vitamin C protects cells from arsenic toxicity [4].
  • Vitamin C protects the immune system, reduces the severity of allergic reactions and helps to fight off infections [6] A recent analysis showed that vitamin C is beneficial to individuals whose immune system has been weakened due to stress.

Vitamin E (as d-alphatocopherol

  • A powerful fat soluble antioxidant helpful in preventing the development of such things as cardiovascular disease and cancers. Being soluble in fat, Vitamin E protects the immune cells from oxidation. Immune cell walls are rich in good fatty acids. Vitamin E improves cell-mediated immunity, and enhance lymphocyte, neutrophil and natural killer cell activity [6,9].
  • Vitamin E is also a powerful anti-inflammatory. Vitamin Es antioxidant properties are also important to cell membranes. For example, vitamin E protects lung cells that are in constant contact with oxygen and white blood cells that help fight disease. Owing to its antioxidant properties, vitamin E promotes the circulation of blood, helping to alleviate fatigue and strengthen capillary walls while nourishing the cells. [1,3]. This also benefits skin by strengthening the capillary walls and improving moisture and elasticity, acting as a natural anti-ageing nutrient.
  • Tocotrienol isomers of vitamin E positively impact cardiovascular health due to their ability to reduce activity of an enzyme that controls cholesterol production/synthesis (called HMG-CoA reductase). Tocotrienol isomers can also prevent cell adhesion and therefore slow down progression ofatherosclerosis, or hardening and thickening of the arteries [1]. Its important to note synthetic vitamin E doesnt seem to have the same benefits of natural forms. EnvioShield Vitamin E is a natural isomer.
  • Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. Based on its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, Vitamin E could have beneficial effects on cardiovascular disease in a high-risk population [2].
  • Vitamin E, taken with vitamin C, can also decrease the risk of developing several forms ofdementia [4]

N-Acetyl_Cysteine

  • N-acetyl-cysteine, commonly abbreviated to NAC, is a precursor of the amino acid Cysteine and the antioxidant glutathione (GSH). The sulfhydryl group of NACs provides important metabolic activity including GSH synthesis, enhancing glutathiones enzyme activity, promoting detoxification and acting directly on free radicals [1], which reduces and prevents damage to cells, tissues and DNA.
  • NAC has been demonstrated to reduce blood lead levels in workers exposed to lead [2].
  • NAC has also been used for heavy metal poisoning including gold, silver, copper, lead and arsenic [3]. NAC may form complexes with these toxins allowing them to be safely excreted [4]. the mechanism of effect appears to be the chelation of the metal to the thiol group positioned on the NAC.
  • Chronic lung disorders associated with inflammation from toxins (e.g. inhaled toxins) can be treated with NAC [5]. Its role is to break up the mucus so that it can be expelled. Which means its easier for the patient to remove the mucus [6,7]. The mechanism is to dissolve the bonds holding the mucus together within the lungs and oesophagus. The body uses mucus to wrap up and immobilise Foreign particles inhaled into the lung.
  • NAC may also clear mucus from respiratory airways by stimulating ciliary action and the gastro-pulmonary vagal reflex, resulting in expectorant activity. [5]
  • So, expelling mucous will remove those toxins before they enter the blood supply.

Sodium Alginate

  • Sodium Alginate is derived from a type of brown seaweed. It is understood to assist the body to prevent absorption of radioactive strontium 90 [1]. This radioactive element is a by-product of nuclear power and the manufacture of nuclear weapons or explosions. The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (now the Nuclear Regulatory Commission) guidelines advocate 3 ounces of kelp a week or 2 tablespoons of alginate supplement a day to prevent strontium-90 absorption. It is active within the gut, and so is effective to reduce harm from daily exposure [2]. It has no effect on previous exposures which may have passed through the intestinal lining and is now embedded in bone or other tissue. A published paper in the Journal ofHealth Physics, concluded Sodium alginate was proven to be a potent agent for reducing strontium absorption with high efficiency and virtually no toxicity. The data obtained show that the uptake of ingested strontium was reduced by a factor of nine when alginate was added. [3]
  • It may also have a role in minimising DNA damage from radiation which will slow the progression of ageing and degenerative diseases. A study of another brown seaweed showed that it was effective in repairing DNA damage caused by radiation. It has also been shown to have anti-tumor properties, enabling the bodys cells to reproduce at a healthy rate. The protection from the seaweed were found to include: an improvement in recovery of damage to development of blood cells, the repair of damaged DNA in immune cells and an increase in their proliferation, which had been severely suppressed by ionizing radiation [4].
  • There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables sea vegetables can prevent assimilation of different radionucleotides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins. Steven Schecter, N.D

Iodine

  • Iodine is essential for your body, and is detected in every organ and tissue.There is increasing evidence that low iodine is related to numerous diseases, including cancer.Essential in the body for producing thyroid hormones. Our food, water and consumer products increasing contain other halides such as chloride, fluoride and bromide allow which are electronegatively stronger than iodine. When the other halides outnumber Iodine in the blood, then the iodine is displaced and cannot perform its function.
  • An imbalance or excess of these other halides can produce their own symptoms of toxicity.
  • When Iodine is replaced by fluoride ions it leads to gross biochemical changes in the body, in particular the ability to regulate metabolism [1].
  • Bromides are a common endocrine disruptor, they suppress thyroid function [2]. Because bromide is also a halide, it competes for the same receptors that are used in the thyroid gland (among other places) to capture iodine. This will inhibit thyroid hormone production resulting in a low thyroid state. When you ingest or absorb bromine, it displaces iodine, and thisiodine deficiencyleads to an increased risk for cancer of the breast, thyroid gland, ovary, and prostate — cancers that we see at alarmingly high rates today. This phenomenon is significant enough to have been given its own name the Bromide Dominance Theory.ii
  • Iodine is an essential part of the make of the mammary and breast tissue. The implication of an iodine deficiency is linked to breast cancer rates. Quote Iodine-deficient breast tissues are also more susceptible to carcinogen action and promote lesions earlier and in greater profusion. Mr Eskin said [3]
  • Iodine pills have been distributed in Japan, and are one of the key therapies used for protection against radiation
  • The solution here is to limit exposure to the other halides, and shift the iodine:halide ratio so that the excess halide (insert fluorine, chlorine or bromine here) can be pushed in the balance of favouring the iodine rather than the toxic. Iodine supplementation alters the competitive bromine-iodine relationship leaving bromine now the blood to be picked up in the liver and delivered for excretion. [4]

Oregano Extract

  • Carvacol and thymol, two phytochemicals in oregano, are powerful antimicrobials. Research has shown essential oils from oregano may kill the foodborne pathogen Listeria and the superbug MRSA (making it a useful addition to hand soaps and disinfectants). In an Italian study, invasive Group A streptococci (GAS) collected from infected children (commonly known as Strep throat). Over the past decades antibiotic resistance in GAS is increasing in many countries. Findings of the studies indicate that oregano may be useful in combating antibiotic resistant GAS [1].
  • Oregano used as an ointment in one study showed a decrease in bacterial contamination and subsequent infection on post-surgical wounds and assisted in minimising scar appearance [2]. This may possibly be explained by the antibacterial activity of carvacrol having an effect on the structural and functional properties of cell membrane [3]
  • Oregano is used widely in the Mediterranean diet, from which there is an association with a low risk for colon cancer. In this study oregano was noted to be responsible for the destruction of colon cancer cells (atopsis) [4]
  • Oregano extract has been found to significantly relieve symptoms in those with upper respiratory infections. It also encourages sweat production as a mode of detox, and ingesting it may help your body to get rid of unwanted phlegm in your lungs.

Pau dArco

  • There are reports of medicinal uses of pau darco tea dating back to 1873. In South America (Pau dArco origin) the bark and wood of the tree are used externally and internally totreat arthritis, pain, inflammation of the prostate gland, fever, dysentery, boils and ulcers, and various cancers [1.1, 1.2].
  • Pau D Arco contains compounds which inhibit pathogenic bacteria while at the same time having no adverse effects on beneficial probiotic strains. It has been shown to actively inhibit, kill or stunt the growth of several dangerous viruses, including herpes, polio, vesicular stomatitis, avian myeloblastosis, leukemia and rous sarcoma virus [2,3,4]. Two active chemicals in Pau dArco called are lapachol and beta-lapachone. These chemicals have the power tokill bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites [2]. Helps the body fight Candida. Candida, also known as candidiasis, is a common yeast infection that can lead to many health problems.The mechanism of effect is inhibition of the enzymes in virus cells, which directly affects the synthesis of DNA and RNA. The virus is then no longer able to take control over the reproductive processes of the cell, so itcan neither replicate itself nor infect other cells.
  • They have also shown anti-inflammatory properties, which are important in treating health conditions such as osteoarthritis. A 2014 studypublished inTheJournal of Toxicological Sciencesfound thatpau darcoincreased the expression of Nrf2-target genes in the intestine.Nrf2 is a protein that regulates the expression ofantioxidantproteins that protect againstoxidative damagetriggered by injury and inflammation [5].
  • A 2005 study published inOncology Reportsfound that lapachol has great potential as an application in fighting metastasis, which is the spread of a cancer or other disease from one organ of the body to another [6, 7]. Metastasis is the major process responsible for the death in cancer patients, and the recent research involving lapachol is promising.

Ginger Root

  • Has been shown to inhibit cancer growth, be anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, effective against asthma and allergies [1].
  • An important finding showed that ginger was found to possess antimicrobial potential against pathogens. Two active components in ginger, [10]-gingerol and [12]-gingerol effectively inhibited the growth of these oral pathogens (2).
  • Earlier investigators have shown that, ginger and its constituents play a vital role in the prevention of microbial growth and act as anti-microbial agents. An important study showed that ginger has antimicrobial activity againstE coli, Salmonella typhiandBacillus subtilisand ethanolic extract of ginger showed the widest zone of inhibition againstSalmonella typhi[3]
  • Ginger root extract inhibits cancer growth and is completely tolerable and safe [4]. In one study, Ginger Root administered to participants reduced inflammation markers in the colon and nausea from chemotherapy within weeks [4]
  • Ginger was shown to prevent the damage of macromolecules, caused by the free radicals/oxidative stress. The anti-inflammatory effects of ginger inhibit formation of COX and down-regulates the induction of inflammatory genes [5].

Gingko Biloba

  • Ginkgo Biloba has used for 1000s of years as a homeopathic medicinal herb to treat a wide variety of health concerns. Well known for its treatment of immune disorders and longevity properties.
  • Studies have shown that Ginkgo Biloba supplementation is more effective at treating Alzheimers disease than the blockbuster drug Donepezil {1}.
  • A growing volume of studies confirm Gingkos ability to reduce oxidative stress and enhances mitochondrial respiration. There is also indication that it may slow the aging process within the mitochondria of cells by reducing oxidative stress and enhancing mitochondrial respiration [2].
  • Ginkgo has been shown powerful against Dementia, Gout, Glaucoma, Memory Enhancement, and Macular Degeneration.
  • It is considered to be radioprotective (i.e. protect cells from damage caused by radiation). According to scientists at the National Center for Scientific Research in Paris the administration of Gingko biloba, 40 milligrams three times a day for two months, to workers at Chernobyl helped to significantly decrease evidence of radiation damage in blood, the benefits persisting for several months after administration of the Ginkgo extract ended [3]. Another study, by Italian researchers from the University of Pisa found similar protective effects of Gingko biloba in patients exposed to high dose radioactive iodine [4].

Note: Gingko Biloba is not appropriate for everyone as it has the ability to thin the blood. Seek medical advice first.

Co Enzyme Q10

  • CoQ10 is also known as Q10, vitamin Q10, ubiquinone, or ubidecarenone. CoQ10 is involved in numerous vital metabolic activities including cell respiration, free radical reduction, blood sugar regulation, and the gene expression of skeletal muscles.
  • CoQ10 is an essential component of the mitochondria (the energy powerhouse within each cell). It is involved in making adenosine triphosphate (ATP) essential for cell respiration [55]. Our cells simply cannot function without enough CoQ10. Sub optimal levels of CoQ10 are linked to cardiovascular disease, Parkinsons, muscular dystrophy, breast cancer, diabetes, infertility, asthma, thyroid disorders, heart failure depression, fatigue and periodontal disease [1].
  • It is also said to boost energy and speed recovery fromexercise [2].
  • Its other crucial role is to serve as an antioxidant and protect biological membranes from oxidative damage [3,4,5]. Excessive amounts of free radicals lead to oxidative damage, which can interfere with regular cell functioning [6]. This is known to cause many health conditions. Given that ATP is used to carry out all the body’s functions and oxidative damage is destructive to cells, it is not surprising that some chronic diseases have been linked to low levels of CoQ10 [5]. Some people take it to help reduce the effects certain medicines can have on the heart, muscles, and other organs.
  • In 1961, scientists saw that people withcancerhad little CoQ10 in theirblood [55]. Many neurodegenerative disorders, diabetes, cancer, and muscular and cardiovascular diseases have been associated with low CoQ10 levels as well as different ataxias and encephalomyopathies. [3] Patients with cancer often exhibit low levels of CoQ10, [6,7] and researchers have shown that CoQ10 can increase immune response in humans.
  • In one study, supplemental CoQ10 reduced migraine frequency by 27%.
  • Research has demonstrated that CoQ10 levels are depleted with aging [5]. At least 100 mg per day is estimated to maintain CoQ10 levels.
  • Symptoms which respond quickly to oral administration of coQ10 include those where a gene malfunction prevents effective synthesis of CoQ10. The symptoms are typical of respiratory disorders (encephalomyopathy, ataxia, lactic acidosis, deafness, retinitis pigmentosa, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, including steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome [4].

Milk Thistle

  • Silybum marianum (milk thistle) has been the subject of over 12,000 published research papers. With a broad action on antioxidant defense, modulation of inflammation, and anti-cancer effects, it has been known mostly for its use in liver disease treatment and prevention; however, this herb is also protective of neuro (nerves), nephron (kidney) and cardio (heart) and blood vessels systems. [1,2]
  • One role of our liver is to produce bile, to filter and detoxify dietary fats in our blood into useful fatty acids. Many toxins are fat soluble and bile is the mechanism through which detoxification and excretion of these toxin occur. For example, Selenium binds with mercury to form a passive compound, but requires bile for this new compound to be excreted from the body. So, a well-functioning liver to produce bile is essential to carry out elimination of mercury and other fat soluble toxins.
  • Xenoestrogens are synthetic or foreign compounds which disrupt the bodys normal hormone balance. They have been implicated in reproductive disorders and an increase in breast cancer incidence [3]. These endocrine disruptors are removed by the liver through a binding process called sulfation.
  • Milk Thistle effectiveness may be through its ability to activate Nrf2. This transcription factor is referred to as the master key to cellular health, detoxification and inflammation. Nrf2 activates and regulates a wide variety of genes, which produce long lasting and highly efficient antioxidant proteins, detoxification enzymes, and other protective molecules [2,4].

Dandelion

  • Traditionally used for gallstones, joint pain, eczema and bruises. Dandelion also increases urine production and serves as a laxative to increase bowel movements. This function is particularly useful to treat infection, especially viral infections and to hasten passing of faecal waste through the colon (the faster it passes through the less time to cause inflammation and damage). The increased bowel movements are beneficial for fighting bacterial infections within the digestive tract and reproductive organs.
  • Another advantage of increased urine production is for the removal of some toxic metals. For example, Aluminium binds to various ligands in the blood and distributes to every organ, with the highest concentrations ultimately found in bone and lung tissues. Absorbed aluminium is excreted principally in the urine. So, kidney health is crucial for effective elimination of Aluminium and the other water soluble toxins.
  • Dandelion has also been used as a skintoner, blood tonic and digestive tonic.
  • A 2011 study by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Windsor in Canada found that dandelion root extract was effective in killing different cancers as a result of its free radical-fighting abilities [1].
  • Dandelion root extract specifically and effectively induces apoptosis in human melanoma cells [1].
  • Studies also show that dandelion boosts immune function and fights off microbes and fungi [2,3] Also its contribution to managing cell death (apoptosis) in cancer.
