"Pregnant women should avoid systemic enzyme supplements, as should people with blood-coagulation disorders. Individuals taking blood pressure/blood-thinning medications or anticoagulant medications should check with their doctor before taking systemic enzyme treatment. FINAL THOUGHTS Systemic enzymes' ability to help rid the body of harmful potentially cancer-causing proteins makes them a great natural supplement to add to your arsenal of cancer prevention tools. Check with your health care professional for advice about the best systemic enzyme to use for your particular condition."

"Systemic enzyme supplements have been clinically proven to actually "eat" cancer tumors, breaking them down and eliminating them from our bodies. Systemic enzymes comprised of both plant and animal enzymes are known as proteolytic (literally, "chewing up proteins") enzymes. Proteolytic enzymes enter the bloodstream and destroy harmful proteins sometimes produced by the body when in a diseased state. "It may seem strange to break down proteins, since they are essential to life. However, some proteins can be quite harmful to joints, organs and tissue," explains Aftab Ahmed, Ph.D."

"Fish oil supplements are best taken at or near the beginning of a meal to avoid any fishy aftertaste—some people burp up a little of the oil if they take it at the end of the meal on a full stomach. Chapter Eight Natural Products for Type 1 Diabetes Individuals with type 1 diabetes absolutely require conventional treatment with the hormone insulin. We consider this approach consistent with natural medicine—after all, the goal is simply to provide the body with a critical natural hormone. All of us have had our lives touched in miraculous ways by advances in medicine."

"In November 1989, tryptophan supplements were recalled, and a few months later, all products containing tryptophan were also recalled. The Center for Disease Control suggested, however, that the problem was caused by a contaminant. Six companies in Japan made all the tryptophan used in the United States. In October 1990, K. Sakimoto isolated and identified an impurity from tryptophan, which, in acid fluid, as in the stomach, broke down into tryptophan and a toxic chemical. Even though tryptophan was thus proven safe and effective, the FDA has still not removed its ban on its use."

"Numerous dietary factors, supplements, exercise, stress, and illness can all have a significant impact on blood sugar control. Becoming intimately aware of how all of these factors influence diabetes will help motivate type 2 diabetics to make positive changes and will provide immediate feedback as to the success of any changes that they have made."

"Fish oil supplements are best taken at or near the beginning of a meal to avoid any fishy aftertaste. þFlavonoid extracts can be taken at any time. þProbiotics should be taken with meals if they are enteric-coated for maximum benefit. If the product is not enteric-coated, it should be taken at least 5 minutes before or 1 hour after a meal, or at bedtime. Chapter Four A Closer Look at Risk Factors for Type 2 Diabetes Let's start out with a straightforward—nonsugar-coated—statement: The major risk factor for type 2 diabetes (see Table 4.1) is obesity—or more precisely, excess body fat."

"AMINO ACIDS Eight of the 22 amino acids that have been identified are considered essential supplements because they cannot be made in the body and adequate amounts must, therefore, be present in the food. These are isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. The other 14 amino acids are inter-convertible in the body, and for this reason, have been labeled non-essential."

"Preliminary results confirm the therapeutic effect of these nutrient supplements. Between 1900 and 1940, pellagra was one of the most serious pandemics in the Southern United States and around Mediterranean countries where corn was the staple food. The U.S. Public Health Service assigned the problem to Dr Joseph Goldberger. The favorite medical theory was that pellagra was an Infection, but he soon deduced that it was a deficiency disease and showed how it could be prevented and cured."

"Hypochlorhydria (Low Stomach Acid): When stomach acid is deficient, numerous gastrointestinal symptoms develop, including frequent gas and bloating, heartburn, nausea from taking supplements, a sense of fullness, thinning or loss of hair, brittle nails, and unexplained iron deficiency anemia. Unfortunately, many sufferers of these common gastrointestinal Vitamin B-3 plays an integral role in the proper functioning of the stomach and a healthy digestive system."

"If your child already has type 2 diabetes and you're interested in learning about supplements to insulin injections and prescription diabetes medications, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (a division of the National Institutes of Health) has published a report on the various natural supplements studied in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, including alpa-lipoic acid, garlic, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, coenzyme Q10, and chromium. You can find this illuminating report at www.nccam.nih.gov/health/diabetes."

"Use of supplements You should not use supplements while on the Master Cleanse. Such nutrients (whether in pill or liquid form) will stimulate your digestive processes and may even stop the detoxification process—something you do not want to happen. The Master Cleanse works effectively, as I have detailed it. A few supplements are known to not interfere with the cleansing process and, in fact, to assist the body in healing. Herbs and herbal teas of all types (but without adding anything, such as honey or other sweetener) can be used with the cleanse."

"Congress expressly gave FDA discretion in the statute to adopt another standard for dietary supplements, but FDA chose to rely on the food standard for supplements as well. From the moment the health claims provision was conceived, the FDA and the drug industry viewed it as a means to undermine the new drug approval process and to challenge the drug industry's monopoly on the right to sell products for therapeutic purposes."
- Jonathan W. Emord, The Rise of Tyranny (Get the book.)

"The scientific evidence documented that because of the volatile status of folate in plants (reduced significantly in storage, cutting, heating, and cooking of vegetables) and the superior bioavailability of folic acid in supplements, the only way for women of child-bearing age to obtain folic acid reliably in quantities needed for meaningful risk reduction was through dietary supplements, not through foods."

"Unlike the supplements, however, Alii produces certain disagreeable, and potentially harmful, side effects including, by GlaxoS-mithKline's own admission, diarrhea and reduced vitamin absorption.178 In its petition Glaxo asked FDA to prohibit all weight loss claims for dietary supplements and to do so summarily, without the benefit of rulemaking (that despite the fact that in 2000 FDA relied on rulemaking to conclude that weight loss claims were permitted structure/function claims)."

"A Vitamin Is Not Just a Vitamin Many of us take vitamins and minerals at breakfast, but you may not understand the difference between supplements from your local drugstore and what you buy at the health food store. There are three kinds of vitamin supplements on the market today. Some are food-based, but many vitamin and mineral supplements are extracted from a food or made in a lab, unable to give anywhere near the benefits of eating natural foods. Isolating and extracting vitamins from a food source throws the body into a quandary, since vitamins and minerals are team players, not solo acts."

"Probiotic supplements are important for optimal immune function and for digestion and detoxification. Take a product containing a daily total of at least 4 billion active organisms. Colostrum is a good supplement to support the immune system. Take 500 mg three times daily. Melatonin has been shown in several studies to be helpful as an adjunctive therapy for certain types of cancers. It activates immune cells and improves the action of chemotherapy drugs and radiation. Take 20 mg or more under the direction and the guidance of a doctor."

"Some studies suggest that there may be new supplements to recommend in coming years; arginine, for instance, the amino acid that is so critical to the production of artery-expanding nitric oxide. However, my experience suggests that our patients are getting plenty of arginine through the plant-based foods they eat—especially legumes. So for now I recommend the first five supplements listed below for all patients, with or without heart disease. And depending on your cholesterol level, the sixth may also be appropriate. 1. Multivitamins."

"As I said earlier, don't take megadose supplements (i.e., vitamins and minerals) or amino acid supplements. This approach reinforces the idea of "taking something" to "fix it," which is precisely the kind of behavior you want to replace. You may have used drugs, alcohol, sugar or French bread to help you "fix" your "crazy" feelings. Whether a person is in drug, alcohol or sugar detox, the brain is in a vulnerable state during the transition to being drug-free. This compromised state might politely be called mush brain."

"Fortunately, a healthful diet and lifestyle, hormone balance, and specific nutritional supplements, as described in this chapter, contribute to normal cytokine activity. Hormone balance is critical for good bone density. A good example is a premenopausal woman who has her ovaries removed. Studies show that this can lead to a sudden drop in bone density, due to low estrogen and progesterone levels. Many hormones are important for bone cell (osteoblast) activity, including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, growth hormone, and calcitonin."

"Sublingual B12 and folic acid supplements are useful for seniors or people with absorption difficulties. Super Prescription #5 Fish oil Take a product containing a daily dosage of 500 to 1,000 mg of EPA/DHA. Essential fatty acids such as DHA improve neurotransmitter function. Super Prescription #6 Ginkgo biloba Take 60 to 120 mg twice daily of a standardized product containing 24 percent flavone glycosides and 6 percent terpene lactones. Ginkgo improves blood flow to the brain and enhances neurotransmitter activity."

"This state of affairs, which has always been a source of deep frustration to those on the fringes of medicine, reached fever pitch when the EU Food supplements Directive was threatening to sweep supplements off the shelves. The idea was to bring safe maximum limits into line across nation states but, as Rose Shepherd suggested in a passionate piece she wrote for the Observer Magazine, the move hijacked food supplements, forcing them to be seen as medicines."
- Jacky Law, Big Pharma: Exposing the Global Healthcare Agenda (Get the book.)

"Let nutritional supplement makers tell the truth Yet another excellent suggestion for transitioning to a healthy nation is to allow nutritional supplement manufacturers to tell the truth about what their supplements do for your health. This is something the FDA has disallowed for decades. They have never allowed manufacturers of nutritional supplements to make true statements about what those supplements can do for your health."
- Mike Adams, The Seven Laws of Nutrition (Get the book.)

"One last example: People who take supplements are healthier than the population at large, yet their health probably has nothing whatsoever to do with the supplements they take— most of which recent studies have suggested are worthless. Supplement takers tend to be better educated, more affluent people who, almost by definition, take a greater than usual interest in personal health—confounders that probably account for their superior health."
