Supplement check list
Stay with the matrix supplement program with a single codicil: Be sure your omega-3 fish oil supplement comes from North Atlantic fish or is North Atlantic krill oil. Since antioxidants are so important, full spectrum vitamin E is your best choice. Also, build your vitamin C to 3000 mg/d. That’s one gram per meal.
• Melatonin, secreted by the pineal gland in the brain, is the “quint-essential” tool for antidoting and reversing radiation poisoning. (Apsley) It quenches nearly all forms of free radicals, including the most dangerous (singlet oxygen) and the most inflammatory (peroxynitrate anion). Melatonin also stimulates the production of SOD, catalase, and glutathione, and initiates repair to the genes and nervous system. It functions better in the presence of fiber. (Melatonin is very cost effective.)
Antiaging specialist Neal Rouzier, MD, has said using up to 30 mg of melatonin per night is well tolerated as a sleep aid. Start with 3 mg and take it ½ hour before bed.
• NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine), second to melatonin, may be the most important amino acid to feed the antioxidant enzyme system. It removes toxic metals which are known to attack genetic functions. Together with melatonin and selenium, NAC protects the cell nucleus. Per the discussion on antioxidant enzyme systems, the versatility of NAC is apparent. 500 mg in the evening.
• Selenium along with zinc, copper, and manganese activate four of the enzyme systems. Selenium is an antioxidant which has been shown to protect against heart disease, fight liver damage, help prevent gastric cancer, and improve immune function. 75 mcg – 200 mcg as high selenium yeast, in the evening.
• Potassium, 99 mg; q calcium, 100 mg or stronium, 100 mg; q magnesium, 100 mg. All taken with each meal to combat “selective uptake” of radioactive minerals.
• 3 caps Antarctic krill oil at breakfast.
• As mentioned above, build vitamin C to 3 grams per day (1 gram/meal) and take 200 – 400 IU complete vitamin E daily.
• CoQ10, 100-300mg daily.
