Quercetin 500 Plus Tablets

Quercetin is reported to be a potent antioxidant and may help protect DNA from damage and be helpful in addressing precancerous issues. For this reason, I like to suggest quercetin when levels of uranium are high in Home water tests or on HE tests. The compounded supplement called UltiFend does include quercetin along with 25 other antioxidants to help protect the body from damage. However, if only a single herb is desired or if there are problems tolerating any of the other 25 ingredients in Ultifend, then simply using quercetin is an option. Quercetin has been reported to have some activity to limit COMT activity so it may not be well tolerated for those who do not tolerate methyl donors or those who are COMT ++. On the other hand, those with Parkinson’s may want to consider low dose quercetin or UltiFend as part of a more complete program with their own doctors. Quercetin has also been reported to increase longevity, to help reduce uric acid and increase glutathione. The quercetin 500 tablets are also a low dose source of manganese and can be used as an alternative to Manganese drops or Glucosamine/Chondroitin Plus for those looking to support manganese. I like to keep manganese in the LOW normal range, so if manganese does NOT need support than the use of plain quercetin capsules or Ultifend would be preferable. I also like to use quercetin to help with allergies and my own daughters have seen positives using quercetin along with the Inflammatory Pathway capsules to reduce significant allergies in the spring. Butterbur and Hyper-Balancing Nucleotide Blend and Coleus Forskohlii may also be useful for allergy symptoms.

I also like to use quercetin to help with allergies and my own daughters have seen positives using quercetin along with the Inflammatory Pathway capsules to reduce significant allergies in the spring. Butterbur and Hyper-Balancing Nucleotide Blend and Coleus Forskohlii may also be useful for allergy symptoms.

Red Yeast Rice Plus Capsules

Red rice yeast has classically been used to help support healthy normal cholesterol levels. This herb contains compounds that have been reported to have effects that aid in balancing cholesterol in a natural manner. I strongly believe that ANY support for cholesterol balancing should also be taken with higher doses of CoQ10 (200mg capsule), in spite of the fact that these Red Rice Yeast capsules already include low dose CoQ10. In addition, Policosanol may help balance LDL with HDL in a positive manner and Fish Oil and Pantothenic Acid may help balance triglycerides in a normal healthy range. My husband uses this daily as he tends toward high cholesterol and has a family history of elevated cholesterol. I am certain to be sure that my husband also remembers to take CoQ10 daily along with this product.

 

Relaxation Support Capsules

This is an excellent combination of calming herbs that can be used in conjunction with single herbs as needed. This combination is one of my favorites from years ago when I had a private practice. This combination includes: valerian, magnolia, lemon balm, skullcap, passionflower, chamomile, phellodendron, oat, theanine, magnesium and hops. Hops can also be a help for acne as it may help decrease testosterone levels relative to estrogen. This combination of calming herbs can be used in conjunction with a source of GABA such as, GABA Balance or BeCalm or extra Valerian as needed. Please defer to your own doctor as always especially when addressing issues with stress, OCD and anxiety and talk to your doctor about the use of herbal blends in conjunction with any prescription medications for these conditions.

 

Resveratrol™ Antioxidant & Glutamate Balance Spray

Literature supporting the use of resveratrol is voluminous. Resveratrol has been reported to serve as an antioxidant, to help with pain, to increase longevity as well as helping to support a healthy body with lowered issues of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and Alzheimers. This spray is an easy to administer oral format that can be used by those who cannot swallow pills or may aid in oral absorption in those who have trouble absorbing nutrients due to leaky gut. The UltiFend compound also includes resveratrol along with 25 additional antioxidants for a more comprehensive approach to antioxidant support. This resveratrol spray is great for extra added support and for those who are unable to use the compounded UltiFend capsule. 

For those who cannot swallow pills, please see the complete list of chewables, creams, liquids, and other forms available listed at the end of this supplement guide.

Rhodiola Extract Capsules

Rhodiola can be particularly useful for those with high creatinine levels in urine, for those with high lactic acid on a MAP or an Organix test or for athletes who have higher lactic acid and creatinine that may affect their muscles. Rhodiola has been reported to lower creatinine levels as well as lowering lactic acid and to reduce the effect of excess stress on the body. I suggest considering rhodiola when creatinine levels are consistently very high on urine tests as I feel this puts undue stress on the kidneys. I prefer creatinine levels stay in a normal healthy range. In addition to the use of rhodiola in cases of high creatinine, I also like the use of Kidney Glandular Extract, Kidney Nucleotide Blend, Dandelion Leaf, Stress nucleotide blend, extra molybdenum and SHMT supports (if iron is also high on testing).

 

Rhubarb Herb Capsules

When extracts of hundreds of Chinese herbs were screened for their antibacterial activity against Bacteroides fragilis only rhubarb was found to have significant activity against this organism. Bacteroides is a major anaerobic microorganism in the intestinal flora of humans that can be responsible for a number of infections when its levels increase in the system. Research from Johns Hopkins has found that Bacteroides may generate inflammation in the gut that may be a factor in DNA damage, predisposing to tumor formation. I suggest that you and your doctor consider the use of rhubarb when Bacteroides levels are high on a CSA or other GI tests.

 

Riboflavin 5′-Phosphate Capsules

(also known as ribo 5 phos)

Riboflavin 5’-Phosphate is a form of vitamin B2 (I often abbreviate the name of this supplement as ‘ribo 5 phos’). I prefer to use Riboflavin 5’-Phosphate rather than plain riboflavin as Riboflavin 5’-Phosphate is the active form of this vitamin. It is also a part of FMN and FAD, which are compounds needed for energy generation in the body. Recent studies indicate that mitochondrial dysfunction associated with neurological conditions may be helped by the use of riboflavin 5 phos. As the name indicates, Riboflavin 5’-Phosphate is a source of phosphate. Ribo 5 phos is one of the few supplements that contains phosphate. I do include this special form of B2 in the Ultimate B Complex. The Ultimate B Complex is designed to include the special active forms of each of the B vitamins. However, when there are imbalances on a MAP or an Organix test such that the Krebs/Citric acid cycle is ‘stuck’ it often is a sign that more FMN or Riboflavin 5’-Phosphate support is needed. In addition, chapped lips, painful red tongue or inflammation at the corners of the mouth are often signs of a need for more riboflavin support. Some studies indicate that riboflavin 5 phos can also help with recovery from bacterial sepsis.

 

Rosemary Capsules

Rosemary and sage may help with transport of vitamin D and vitamin A into the body. Those who have issues with low vitamin D in spite of adequate support may want to consider extra rosemary and/or the Vita D-Light spray (which already includes rosemary along with vitamin D). Rosemary may help to lower MMP 9 levels which may help with bone and skin integrity. Also, to help with skin, rosemary increases the level of ursolic acid in the body and this may be supportive for healthy skin.

 

Royal Jelly Capsules

To err on the side of caution, I do NOT suggest Royal Jelly for anyone with bee allergies. Royal Jelly may be an excellent addition for those who need more amino acid support due to low amino acids on UAA tests. Royal Jelly can be used along with AminoAssist to support healthy amino acid levels. In addition, Royal Jelly may help to support healthy natural levels of BH4. BH4 is needed to convert tryptophan to serotonin and tyrosine to dopamine. BH4 is particularly important for those who have higher levels of toxic metals in their system. Other options to support natural healthy BH4 levels can include the use of the MTHFR A1298C capsule and MetalAway capsule as well as sources of Homeopathic BH4. The Egg Protein Powder is another option to support amino acids If there are no egg allergies.

SAM-e Tablets

and SAM-e S-Adenosyl-Methionine Enteric Coated Tablets (Foil wrapped in a box)

SAMe (S adenosyl methionine) is the single most important methyl donor in the body. It participates in numerous reactions in the body that are critical for health and wellbeing. Those who are AHCY + may want to consider extra SAMe. Those who have less PE on a UAA test relative to PS may also want to consider extra SAMe. Those who have low creatinine on urine tests may want to consider SAMe along with creatine to help support healthy levels of creatinine, which is a compound that is high in brain, testes and muscle and may play a role in language. SAMe plays a role in converting serotonin to melatonin so you can sleep as well as helping you to produce carnitine and CoQ10. Lack of SAMe has been linked to seasonal affect disorder and to some cases of depression. SAMe is needed for COMT function as well as DNMT function. SAMe may help balance epinephrine and norepinephrine aiding in attention and focus. SAMe should always be taken with a B complex such as the Ultimate B Complex. I like to have more than one option for SAMe support as it is such an important supplement. SAMe is oxygen sensitive and so it needs to be protected in order to keep it intact. The SAM-e tablets are complexed with tosylate which may help to give the SAMe more protection from oxidative damage. Another option is to use the individual foil wrapped SAMe that is packaged to protect it from the air. It is best to use one entire tablet of either of these at a single time rather than breaking the SAMe into pieces because it is so sensitive to oxygen. IF it is necessary to break the SAMe into smaller increments then the SAMe tosylate tablets may be able to last a day or so, while the foil wrapped version may not survive as well after being broken into pieces. For those who can only tolerate low dose SAMe, I hae included LOW dose SAMe in Folinic Plus (formerly called MethylMate A). I feel that all of us need some low dose SAMe as it is so critical for reactions in the body and the use of Folinic Plus is HIGHLY suggested for all to support everything you need for the methylation cycle except 5 methyl THF, which is added separately (using 5 methyl THF drops) to allow you to have control over this last piece of 5 methyl THF support that may trigger detox. It is fine to use extra separate SAMe as needed in addition to the use of Folinic Plus.

Saw Palmetto Softgels

Saw Palmetto is useful to help with a normal healthy prostate. It is my personal opinion that males over 40 should consider some form of Saw Palmetto daily. I also use low dose Prostate Plus Nucleotide Blend along with the use of Saw Palmetto and Inflammatory Pathway caps in males 40 and older, but as always defer to your own doctor.

 

Saw Palmetto Pygeum Plus Softgels

Saw Palmetto is useful to help with a normal healthy prostate. In my personal opinion as males age, extra support for the prostate should be considered I feel that males over 50 should consider Saw Palmetto plus which also includes a range of compounds along with Saw Palmetto, all designed to aid in a normal healthy prostate. Saw Palmetto plus includes pygeum, nettle, lycopene as well as pumpkin extract. All of these can be useful for an aging prostate along with low dose Prostate or Prostate Plus Nucleotide Blend. There are reports to suggest that pumpkin extract helps to strengthen the bladder muscles, and that nettle helps to inhibit the inflammatory mediator TNF alpha which may be helpful for the prostate. References suggest that pygeum may be useful for male infertility and impotence as well as inflamed prostates. Studies indicate that lycopene may be preventative for prostate cancer. In addition to the use of Saw Palmetto Plus, as needed extra Curbita Pumpkin Extract, Prostanex and Passion Flower can be used along with Saw Palmetto plus if additional prostate support is desired. Inflammatory Pathway Caps can also be considered. As ALWAYS defer to your own doctor especially if you have concerns about an enlarged prostate.

 

Seasonal Support Capsules

When my daughters were younger and tended to have more frequent colds/flu I would use a combination of Echinacea, Elderberry and Goldenseal for them and found it always worked extremely well. The Seasonal Support capsule is based on this combination that I still use today. Seasonal Support includes two sources of berberine, Goldenseal as well as Oregon Grape (as a side note, berberine may be a help for language). Seasonal Support also includes Echinacea and Elderberry along with lower amounts of other nutrients reported to help with colds, sniffles and the flu. My daughters and I personally use Seasonal Support at the first sign of a sniffle. This compound can also be used for prevention during cold and flu season. The use of the Homeopathics called Wellness Cold and Flu and Oscilliococcinum may be helpful along with extra Elderberry as needed. The herb Melissa is reported to be useful in children for fevers and can be considered along with General Nucleotide Blend. DEFER to your own doctor in cases of fever and influenza. In addition, Seasonal Support can be used as part of a more complete approach to microbial imbalances in the body. Since I feel that low doses of multiple herbs and supplements to limit bacterial resistance is the ideal approach, I like to use NaturoMycin, GSE and Seasonal Support along with Bactisolve for those with chronic bacterial imbalances on CSA/GM tests. In addition, if biofilms or chronic bacterial issues are concerns, then you can consider the use of Bactisolve with their own doctor as part of a more complete antimicrobial program. The combination of EDTA and chitosan found in Bactisolve has been reported to help weaken the protective layers surrounding bacteria, making them more susceptible to antimicrobial agents. (Where BactiSolve does contain EDTA it may cause detox so this consideration should be kept in mind.) Remember that chitosan is derived from the shells of shellfish and for this reason it should be used with caution or avoided by those with shellfish allergies.

 

Seavive Capsules

This is a concentrated source of cod fish. Cod fish, as compared to other white fish, is a particularly good source of ‘parvalbumin’. This compound has been reported to play a role in working memory, cognitive flexibility, may aid in language development. From that standpoint, one would think the more parvalbumin the better. However, when individuals have allergic reactions to fish, those reactions are to parvalbumin. For that reason, the use of a concentrated cod fish supplement, such as Seavive, should NOT be used by anyone who suspects they have a fish allergy. Those who do NOT have a fish allergy may find that this supplement is a help for verbal language when used with a more complete supplement program. Defer to your own doctor, as always, and especially if you are unsure about possible allergic reactions.

 

Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine (Selenium) capsules

Selenium is important for helping to maintain healthy glutathione levels in the body, helping to lower inflammation and reducing the risk of certain cancers. Selenium also may help aid in moving mercury from the system. Lack of selenium can play a role in muscle fatigue and weakness. It has been suggested that it is ideal to use multiple types of selenium as they work together in a synergistic fashion.

However, excess selenium can have toxic effects in the body. The body regulates selenium levels by removing excess selenium by methylation. Those who have not yet supported methylation in the body may want to be more cautious about selenium dosing. Once methylation is supported and in balance THEN the body is in a better position to utilize higher levels of selenium support and take advantage of the positive effects of selenium with regard to toxic metal excretion, supporting glutathione and cancer prevention. I feel that selenium is such an important mineral in the body that I like to have several options to choose from for adding extra selenium once methylation is supported. Studies indicate that specific types of selenium may help protect against a range of cancers, Selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine is one of the forms suggested for this purpose, along with sodium selenate and selenomethionine. Both selenomethionine and selenium methyl L cysteine are well absorbed in the body and may help with cancer prevention in different ways. Selenium methyl L selenocysteine helps to induce the death of mutated cells. Selenomethionine is well absorbed and is reported to induce suicide of cancer cells. The various forms of selenium can be combined for use of different forms simultaneously, but again, I feel that it is very important to ensure that methylation support is in place before increasing selenium support from multiple sources. The custom general vitamin that I designed called All in One includes very low dose selenomethionine as well as low dose methylation supports to help everyone get started with a low dose source of well absorbed selenium along with methylation support basics. MetalAway also includes a low dose source of selenomethionine.

 

Selenium (drops) (a source of selenium selenite)

Selenium drops are a source of sodium selenate. This form of selenium is reported to more specifically help support healthy glutathione levels as compared to other forms of selenium, although it may not be absorbed as easily as Selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine or selenomethionine. Selenium is important for helping to maintain healthy glutathione levels in the body (with sodium selenite as a preferred source for this purpose), helping to lower inflammation and reducing the risk of certain cancers. Selenium also may help aid in moving mercury from the system. Lack of selenium can play a role in muscle fatigue and weakness. It has been suggested that it is ideal to use multiple types of selenium as they work together in a synergistic fashion. However, excess selenium can have toxic effects in the body. The body regulates selenium levels by removing excess selenium by methylation. Those who have not yet supported methylation in the body may want to be more cautious about selenium dosing. Once methylation is supported and in balance THEN the body is in a better position to utilize higher levels of selenium support and take advantage of the positive effects of selenium with regard to toxic metal excretion, glutathione support and cancer prevention. I feel that selenium is such an important mineral in the body that I like to have several options to choose from for adding extra selenium once methylation is supported. Studies indicate that specific types of selenium may help protect against a range of cancers, Selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine is one of the forms suggested for this purpose, along with sodium selenite and selenomethionine. Both selenomethionine and selenium methyl L cysteine are well absorbed in the body and may help with cancer prevention in different ways.

The custom general vitamin I designed called All in One includes very low dose selenomethionine as well as low dose methylation supports to help everyone get started with a low dose source of well absorbed selenium along with methylation support basics. MetalAway also includes a low dose source of selenomethionine. 

For those who cannot swallow pills, please see the complete list of chewables, creams, liquids, and other forms available listed at the end of this supplement guide.

Selenium Tablets (a source of selenium phosphate)

Selenium tablets are a source of selenium combined with phosphate. When phosphate levels are low this is a good choice for support. Selenium phosphate tablets can be used in conjunction with ATP and Riboflavin 5’-Phosphate and MitoForce to support phosphate levels along with selenium. Phosphate is needed to help with energy and ATP which aids in transport of a large range of nutrients into the body. Selenium tablets do include calcium as well as serving as a source of both selenium and phosphate. If calcium levels are in the lower range of normal and the desire is to support both selenium and phosphate then the selenium tablets are another option to support selenium levels. Multiple types of selenium support can be used simultaneously and there are advantages to doing so. Selenium is important for helping to maintain healthy glutathione levels in the body (with sodium selenite as a preferred source for this purpose), helping to lower inflammation and reducing the risk of certain cancers. Selenium also may help aid in moving mercury from the system. Lack of selenium can play a role in muscle fatigue and weakness. It has been suggested that it is ideal to use multiple types of selenium as they work together in a synergistic fashion. However, excess selenium can have toxic effects in the body. The body regulates selenium levels by removing excess selenium by methylation. Those who have not yet supported methylation in the body may want to be more cautious about selenium dosing.

I feel that selenium is such an important mineral in the body that I like to have several options to choose from for adding extra selenium once methylation is supported. Studies indicate that specific types of selenium may help protect against a range of cancers, Selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine is one of the forms suggested for this purpose, along with sodium selenite and selenomethionine. Both selenomethionine and selenium methyl L cysteine are well absorbed in the body and may help with cancer prevention in different ways. Selenium methyl L selenocysteine helps to induce the death of mutated cells. Selenomethionine is well absorbed and is reported to induce suicide of cancer cells. The various forms of selenium can be combined for use of different forms simultaneously, but again, I feel that it is very important to ensure that methylation support is in place before increasing selenium support from multiple sources. The custom general vitamin that I designed called All in One includes very low dose selenomethionine as well as low dose methylation.

 

SerenAid Capsules

I like to use SerenAid as a source of DPP-IV. The level of DPP-IV may be depleted in those with chronic issues with Streptococcal infection as well as those who are AHCY +. I do include a source of DPP-IV in the AHCY/SHMT capsules for this reason but I also suggests that those who are AHCY + consider one Serenaid with each meal. While SerenAid is suggested by the manufacturer as a digestive enzyme, I highly prefer to use Special Digestive Enzymes (SDE) as my primary enzyme source for my protocol. SDE are unique enzymes in that they include a high level of pancreatin along with a wide range of other needed digestive enzymes. While SerenAid does not have the breadth of enzyme support found in SDE, and so is not sufficient in my opinion as the sole source of enzymatic support, I really like this product for AHCY+ individuals and for those who continue to show the presence of Streptococci on CSA and GI tests.

 

SeroMood™ Serotonin Support Capsules

SeroMood is not just a source of 5 HTP, rather it is a combination of compounds designed to help support healthy serotonin levels. I believe in working with your own doctor to balance serotonin and to work from a range of tests before simply adding 5 HTP or other supports for serotonin. As discussed in the chapter on neurotransmitters in Feel Good Biochemistry (view chapter here), I like to look at tryptophan levels on a UAA, 5 HIAA levels on a MAP (or Organix) and serotonin levels on a NC test simultaneously in order to determine what is going on with the level of starting material for serotonin (tryptophan on a UAA), the level of BH4 for converting serotonin (tryptophan, phenylalanine and tyrosine on a UAA), the level of serotonin breakdown (5 HIAA on a MAP) and actual serotonin levels on a NC test. When a range of data suggests a need for more serotonin support then low dose SeroMood and/or 5 HTP and/or low dose Mood S Nucleotide Blend can be considered. On a side note, St. John’s wort has the side benefit of helping hemorrhoids when used externally. DEFER to your own doctor as always, especially when addressing serotonin imbalances.

 

Serraflazyme Tablets

The enzyme contained in these tablets, serratiopeptidase is reported to help with inflammation as well as aiding in the breakdown of phlegm. My custom digestive enzyme, Special Digestive Enzymes (SDE) does include significant amounts of serratiopeptidase because I feel this is an important enzyme for all. However, if individuals are not yet ready to add SDE on a regular basis, then Serraflazyme can be used as a separate source of this important enzyme. When excess mucus or respiratory issues are a concern then serratiopeptidase can be combined with Air Power or Muscle Fatigue capsules which are natural sources of Guaifenesin (which is also useful for excess mucus and respiratory support). In addition the use of low dose Respiratory, Cytokine and General Nucleotide Blends may be a help for the lungs and inflammation respectively. GSH with NADH may also be helpful for lung support.

 

SHMT™ Spray

and AHCY/SHMT – Iron Related Bacterial Issues Capsules

SHMT support spray and capsules help to support the imbalances created by AHCY and SHMT SNPs, but are also a help for the presence of higher iron on mineral tests. Excess iron can increase bacterial issues. Excess iron can also increase the SHMT pathway so that it becomes overactive looking like an SHMT + SNP even if that SNP is not present. Excess iron can thus create imbalances in aspects of the folate/MTHFR pathway and this supplement may be a help in restoring balance. Those with AHCY SNPs may benefit from additional DPP-IV support and that enzyme is included in AHCY/SHMT capsules (extra DPP-IV can also be added with the use of SerenAid). Both the capsules and spray include a low dose source of folinic and nucleotides to help shift the emphasis back to the long route and short cuts around the methylation cycle and away from the ‘dead end’ path created by SHMT +. My daughters have found that literally targeting the throat by looking in a mirror and using the SHMT spray to target red or white spots in the throat when they have a sore throat is a tremendous help in speeding recovery. My daughters combine this use of the spray with Seasonal Support and IMF 5 during cold/Strep and flu season. DEFER to your own doctor when you suspect Streptococcus/Strep throat or the flu.

For those who cannot swallow pills, please see the complete list of chewables, creams, liquids, and other forms available listed at the end of this supplement guide.

Skullcap Capsules

I consider skullcap as a wonderful herb to help with inflammation and it is included in the Inflammatory Pathway Support capsules. However, for those who desire extra Skullcap support or cannot utilize some of the compounds in the Inflammatory Pathway capsules this is an alternative. Skullcap may also be preventative for prion related conditions (Mad Cow and there are recent studies suggesting a role for prions in Alzheimers) as well as the role it plays in reducing inflammation.

 

Slippery Elm Throat Lozenges

Slippery elm helps to soothe irritated mucous membranes. I like to use slippery elm for a sore throat as well as for those with imbalances in sIgA on a CSA, suggesting irritated mucosa in the gut. Since zinc may limit the duration of certain colds/flu the use of Zinc lozenges with slippery elm is another option for a sore throat. 

For those who cannot swallow pills, please see the complete list of chewables, creams, liquids, and other forms available listed at the end of this supplement guide.

Slippery Elm Bark Capsules

Slippery elm helps to soothe irritated mucous membranes. I like to use slippery elm for a sore throat as well as for those with imbalances in sIgA on a CSA, suggesting irritated mucosa in the gut.

 

Smart Sweet (Xylitol) Granules

Xylitol is reported to help limit ear infections from Streptococcus, and to help with dental issues. In addition, xylitol may help with leaky gut. The use of xylitol as a sweetener may help with these issues as well as serving as an alternative to sugar. The Ice Chips candies are another source of xylitol; the oral absorption of xylitol in these candies may be useful for limiting Strep in the mouth. I have struggled with dental issues for many years. On the recommendation of my dentist I use xylitol mints, sweetener, oral rinse on a daily basis and I have found it actually has been a great help for me personally. 

For those who cannot swallow pills, please see the complete list of chewables, creams, liquids, and other forms available listed at the end of this supplement guide.

Smart Q10 Chewable Tablets

Chewable CoQ10 is an option for those who cannot swallow capsules and want to supplement the use of the oral CoQ10 spray. CoQ10 is one of the few nutrients that functions in the fat phase and not just the water phase in your body. It is a critical supplement in the energy pathway. CoQ10 has been reported to help with energy, build new nerves and help with membrane fluidity. Based on a recent NIH study, more is better when it comes to CoQ10. CoQ10 is an important antioxidant for oxidative damage in the body, including in the fat phase, not simply the water phase in the cells. There have been reports that indicate that low levels of CoQ10 are a factor in congestive heart failure. Any individual taking statin drugs should be supplementing with CoQ10 on a daily basis. I feel that CoQ10 is a critical supplement and use it as part of MitoForce for general mitochondrial support as well as using it as a separate standalone supplement. Because I feel it is so critical it is offered in a range of doses as well as in capsules, in a spray as well as a chewable tablet. 

For those who cannot swallow pills, please see the complete list of chewables, creams, liquids, and other forms available listed at the end of this supplement guide.

 

Sodium from Aerobic O7 (Stabilized Oxygen) Drops

Low dose support with Aerobic drops can be used to help support sodium if low levels are detected on mineral tests as well as serving as support for oxygen for tired muscles. When the pH on a CSA test is particularly low, or the creatinine levels are very high on urine tests then the use of sodium bicarbonate is another option to consider with your own doctor, but care should be used when using sources of bicarbonate to help with pH issues. As always defer to your own doctor when working on pH imbalances.

For those who cannot swallow pills, please see the complete list of chewables, creams, liquids, and other forms available listed at the end of this supplement guide.

 

Sodium Potassium Bicarb Capsules

Sodium Potassium bicarbonate can be used as a source of both potassium and sodium as well as the bicarbonate compound. The bicarbonate can help to increase the pH when levels are too low as noted on a CSA or in urine. Those with particularly low pH on CSA or other gut tests can consider supplementing bicarbonate as a low gut pH can create an environment that is conducive to nonideal bacteria. Other options for balancing gut pH can include the use of VitaOrgan or Stomach pH Nucleotide Blend. In addition to cases of low pH on a CSA test, if the creatinine levels are very high on urine tests then the use of sodium bicarbonate is an option to consider with your own doctor. This combination, which includes both Potassium Bicarbonate and Sodium Bicarbonate can also be considered depending on the need for these minerals in the body. Balancing your pH may help with migraines as low pH can be a factor in migraines. Low pH can also be a factor in aggression so check gut pH for those with aggression especially if lithium and potassium are in balance on a HE. However, defer to your own doctor before adding bicarbonate minerals as care should be used when using sources of bicarbonate to help with pH issues. As always defer to your own doctor when working on pH imbalances.

 

Soy Isoflavones

For those looking for plant based compounds with estrogenic activity. These are one of several options for those looking for support to address hot flashes and symptoms of menopause. This is a SOY based source of phytoestrogens. If hot flashes are an issue, also consider low dose Anxiety Nucleotide Blend (or Menopause nucleotide blend) and Calcium D-Glucarate. Topical estrogen and Progesterone Creams are also options such as the BiEstro Cream which includes estriol and estradiol or the Progesterone Cream as needed. Other options include the AM/PM Menopause capsules or the use of Black Cohosh, Black Cohosh Plus, or Natural Estrogen Vegetarian caps.

 

Special Digestive Enzymes Capsules

Most digestive enzymes do not have sufficient levels of pancreatin. This is particularly important for those who show a need for extra pancreatic support on a CSA or GI test or those with autism. In addition to having a specially formulated higher level of pancreatin, SDE also include 11 additional enzymes to help with digestion as well as a source of papaya. I had these SDE formulated to my specifications as I could not find another digestive enzyme that included pancreatin in higher doses along with these 11 other enzymes which also includes serrapeptidase. Serrapeptidase is another specialized enzyme that has been reported to aid in reducing inflammation, in reducing mucus and to help with respiratory issues.

 

Sphingolin Capsules

Sphingolin is a source of myelin, which is the coating around nerves. When detoxification of metals occurs it can often be associated with demyelination of the nerves (loss of the protective coating around the nerves). When new nerves are formed they may often be lacking in their myelin sheath for quite some time. Lack of methylation support is related to lack of myelination of nerves. I like to think of myelin as the coating you see on electrical wires. I often explain the lack of myelination as making nerves more susceptible to trauma, just like a wire from your lamp going in to the wall, will be more susceptible to shorting out from a drop of water if the wire is not coated. If the wire from a lamp is coated with plastic then a water spill is not an issue. However if that plastic coating has frayed then a water spill can cause a shock or cause the bulb in the lamp to blow out. While supporting methylation helps to restore the myelination process using some extra myelin support such as the use of daily Sphingolin can be a real help in my personal opinion.

 

Spirulina Tablets

Spirulina is a source of blue green algae that has been reported to help support the immune system. Blue green algae may help to move Natural Killer (NK) cells into the tissues to aid in surveillance of non-ideal cells that have moved into those tissues. I like the use of ARA6 combined with Spirulina to support an increase in NK cells as well as an aid to help move those NK cells into the tissue as needed. ARA6 is a source of larch arabinogalactans which have been reported to help increase the immune system, in particular to help increase natural killer cell activity and macrophage activity within the immune system. This increase in NK and macrophage activity may be a help for those whose immune system is allowing for uncontrolled growth of unwanted cells especially when used in conjunction with more standard medical approaches to cancerous conditions. Using spirulina to aid in moving those NK cells into tissues is worth considering both for unwanted cell growth as well as to aid in helping to move aluminum out of the system. Spirulina is included in the supplement called MetalAway. I use MetalAway as part of my daily supplement regime along with the use of EDTA soap.

St. John’s Wort Extract Capsules

St. John’s Wort is reported to be helpful for nerve pain, for anxiety and for mild depression. I highly suggest working with your OWN doctor in cases of depression. St. John’s Wort is included in the supplement called SeroMood, along with a number of other calming herbs and low dose 5HTP. For those who only want a source of St. John’s Wort then this standalone capsule would be a better choice. Those who are looking for a more complete combination of natural serotonin support can consider SeroMood instead. A little known positive of topical St. John’s Wort is that it may help with hemorrhoids when applied directly to the region. As always DEFER to your own doctor when using any supplements or herbs to aid with emotional conditions.

 

Statlyte Cream

A topical cream that serves as a source of a range of minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and zinc. It does also include colloidal silver and I am NOT a fan of the use of silver in any product. For this reason, I only suggest the use of this cream when oral support of a mineral is not possible and in those cases this offers an option to help address the need for mineral support. Because of the presence of colloidal silver in this cream, I suggest using the B complex crème ALONG with this Statlyte mineral crème as the B complex crème includes riboflavin which can help to mitigate the impact of silver in the system. 

For those who cannot swallow pills, please see the complete list of chewables, creams, liquids, and other forms available listed at the end of this supplement guide.

Step 3 Cognitive Support™ Capsules

Step one of this program is designed to lay the groundwork for organ supports, have some basic methylation support and to get glutamate and GABA in better balance. Step two is concentrated on more significant methylation support as well as support for detoxification of metals and microbes from the system. Step three is about aiding in left/right communication, helping to support new nerve growth, supports for stimulating language and support to limit some repetitive behavioral issues. There are several types of glutamate receptors and it has been shown that in autism, some of those are too active and others are not active enough. Once the excess glutamate has been addressed in the first steps of this program, then in Step three the goal is to stimulate those glutamate regions that have been lacking, while maintaining the lower glutamate in the over active regions. For this reason, I do not like to add Step 3 support until glutamate and GABA are in better balance and until the majority of metal and bacterial/viral excretion has occurred. Since metals and microbes can cause or exacerbate glutamate issues, the idea is to wait until these glutamate provokers have been lowered in the system as well as to have sufficient support for GABA and support to lower glutamate before adding all of the wonderful cognitive enhancers in the Step 3 compound. The Step 3 compound may be useful for adults with memory issues as well as adults with fatigue but again, after glutamate excesses have been addressed.

 

Strontium Support II VegiCaps

Strontium is reported to be helpful for bone integrity along with the use of boron and low dose calcium. Strontium tends to be excreted at higher levels by those with MTR + status, this may be related to the higher lithium excretion noted in those who are MTR +. High level lithium excretion can be associated with high level strontium excretion. For this reason regular HE tests are highly suggested for those who are MTR + or those with low lithium on HMT. The Bone Support capsules and the MTR/MTRR/SUOX capsules include low dose strontium. If levels of strontium are still low then the use of extra Strontium support capsules can be considered.

 

Super Citrimax Capsules

The main component of Citrimax is the herb garcinia which is known to play a role in accelerating and enhancing the burning of fats. This is primarily used for weight management and can be included as part of a larger program for weight loss with Tonalin, Lecithin, and Passion Flower along with a healthy diet. This product also includes chromium so it is another option for those with low chromium as well as issues with fat digestion that are noted on a CSA/GPPP test. Work with your own doctor on any weight management programs.

 

Super Kelp Tablets

Kelp may be helpful to support the thyroid, for low iodine levels, for weight management and potentially cancer prevention. Kelp may also be a source of potassium and iodine.

 

Suprema Dophilus Capsules

Suprema Dophilus is one of the key probiotics that I like to rotate for support of normal flora. Suprema Dophilus is a source of both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium which are the only two types of bacteria that I choose to use in my probiotic rotation. Suprema Dophilus includes five strains of Lactobacillus and three strains of Bifidobacterium. Suprema Dophilus also includes prebiotic food to aid in the colonization of these strains. For a complete chart and listing of the probiotics I suggest and why, please see the separate Probiotic listing. This includes a more complete explanation of probiotic options and the rationale behind my choices for probiotic support.

 

Symplex F Tablets

Just as Symplex M capsules are a lovely support for males, Symplex F is a great support for females to consider. I am personally a big fan of the use of glandular supports. I feel they are a tremendous help when used in conjunction with other supplements targeted to address particular organ weaknesses. This supplement includes organ support for the thyroid, adrenals.pituitary, and ovary. For instance those who have concerns about adrenal fatigue could consider Symplex along with the use of Adrenal concentrate and PS/PE/PC. The inclusion of pituitary support in Symplex may be a particular help in cases of adrenal fatigue that does not seem to resolves with supplements as well as to help support normal healthy growth and balanced hormone levels. Similarly those with concerns about natural thyroid support could consider Symplex along with coleus, Metabolic advantage, kelp, PABA and pantothenic. Females with concerns about hormone support can consider Symplex F along with Libido caps.

Symplex M Tablets

Just as Symplex F capsules are a lovely support for females, Symplex M is a great support for males to consider. I am personally a big fan of the use of glandular supports. I feel they are a tremendous help when used in conjunction with other supplements targeted to address particular organ weaknesses. This supplement includes organ support for the thyroid, adrenals.pituitary, and testicles. For instance those who have concerns about adrenal fatigue could consider Symplex along with the use of Adrenal concentrate and PS/PE/PC. The inclusion of pituitary support in Symplex may be a particular help in cases of adrenal fatigue that does not seem to resolves with supplements as well as to help support normal healthy growth and balanced hormone levels. Similarly those with concerns about natural thyroid support could consider Symplex along with coleus, Metabolic advantage, kelp, PABA and pantothenic. Males with concerns about virility can consider Symplex along with Libido caps.
