support in a bottle

Hey you!

These support supplements are not something I just started taking because of the situation we’re in right now (I literally don’t want to say the word, because I’m tired of seeing it everywhere).

 

These are my every-day support in a bottle(s). A different kind of bottle…not the kind that makes you inebriated. But hey, I won’t kid myself….I’ve been imbibing in a glass of red wine most nights too.

 

But these are just part of my routine. I’d like to believe they keep me healthy. And there is research to back each ingredient in these…that they either support the immune system, are anti-inflammatories or they assist in maintaining a low blood sugar.

 

Plus just normal every day functioning of cells and enzymatic processes in our body that keep our nerves healthy, and our muscles strong and our liver processing toxins.

 

So, what’s on the list? And why do I take it….

 

Curcumin-Evail:

well researched for anti-inflammatory properties, as well as reducing the cytokine storm that happens with viral infections. The formulation of this one is highly absorbable without black pepper, which for some people can upset the stomach. It is also shown that Curcmin assists the the liver when it comes to oxidative stress, by acting as a free-radical scavenger and suppressing pro-inflammatory cytokines.

 

GlucoSupreme Herbal:

Fenugreek is often used by Indians after a meal to help with digestion. You can chew on the seeds if you have bloating, gas or constipation. There is also some evidence to show that it assists with balancing blood sugar. Cinnamon is useful for altering the effects of blood sugar rise. It does this by interfering with numerous digestive enzymes, which slows the breakdown of carbohydrates in your digestive tract. Also, a compound in cinnamon can act on cells by mimicking insulin. This greatly improves glucose uptake by your cells, though it acts much slower than insulin itself. Berberine is a natural/herbal antibiotic. Ginseng also shows evidence of reducing blood sugar in those with Type II Diabetes.

 

Immunitone Plus:

Echinacea and Elderberry have been well researched to assist with the immune response. Though I just read that too much Elderberry might inhibit the response to the cytokine storm. However, the amounts in this supplement are not at the level to do that.

 

Andrographis has been shown to restrain virus replication and virus-induced pathogenesis and provide symptomatic relief of acute respiratory tract infections in adults and children.

 

Herbal mushrooms like shitake, cordyceps and reishi have been been well researched to assist with our natural immune response. Adaptogenic mushrooms are also helpful in our stress response–helping to regulate the HPA axis. They can also help to increase healthy bacteria as a probiotic by increasing strains: Roseburia, Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, and Akkermansia

 

Polyphenols and antioxidants are thought to give Green tea extract its immune boosting properties. Green tea has been shown to increase the number of “regulatory T cells.” Some cells exist primarily to help “turn off” the immune system, including regulatory T cells. The number and proper function of those regulatory T cells, in turn, is regulated by other biological processes such as transcription factors and DNA methylation. In a study, OSU scientists did experiments with a compound in green tea, a polyphenol called EGCG, which is believed to be responsible for much of its health benefits and has both anti-inflammatory characteristics. They found it could cause a higher production of regulatory T cells.

 

Major Drug Interaction: Tizanidine ⇄ Echinacea
• Generally avoid: Coadministration with inhibitors of CYP450 1A2 may significantly increase the plasma concentrations
and pharmacologic effects of tizanidine, which is a sensitive substrate of the isoenzyme.1


Major Drug Interaction: Echinacea ⇄ Rasagiline
• Adjust dose: Coadministration with inhibitors of CYP450 1A2 may increase the plasma concentrations of rasagiline, which
is primarily metabolized by the isoenzyme.2
Major Drug Interaction: Caffeine ⇄ Echinacea
• Monitor: Coadministration with echinacea may increase the plasma concentrations and the risk of adverse effects of
drugs that are substrates of CYP450 1A2. The proposed mechanism is decreased clearance due to echinacea-mediated
inhibition of CYP450 1A2. Echinacea has been shown to increase the plasma levels of caffeine, a CYP450 1A2 substrate, by
approximately 30%.3


Major Drug Interaction: Andrographis
• Anticoagulants (Andrographis may slow blood clotting)
• Immunosuppressants (Andrographis increases immune system activity)
• Antihypertensives (Andrographis may decrease blood pressure)
Major Drug Interaction: Vitamin D ⇄ Digoxin
• Monitor/Adjust dose: Cholecalciferol can increase the levels of calcium

 

Liposomal B Supreme:

I probably don’t have to tell you why B Vitamins are helpful at this point…it’s well known. From nerve signal generation, to muscle signal transmission, to metabolism (making sure your cells have energy), creating new blood cells, maintaining healthy skin cells and brain cells…..the list goes on. You just want to make sure the B Vitamins you are taking. See below for the right forms….it does matter folks. Make sure you’re not peeing out those expensive supplements.

 

This form is in a liposomal liquid form for easy absorption.

Thiamine as Thiamine HCL

Riboflavin as Riboflavin-5-Phosphate

Niacin as Niacinimide

Vitamin B6 as Pyridoxine HCL

Vitamin B12 as Methylcobalamin

Biotin

Pantothenic Acid as Calcium d-Pantothenate

 

OmegAvail TG1000:

Omega-3 fatty acids are pretty well known for helping to keep inflammation in check, particularly when it comes to cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, skin issues like eczema and psoriasis, depression, digestive disorders and pain.

 

You want to make sure your source is pure and free of metals, pesticides, and other contaminants.

 

So there you have it! My daily routine and the why behind it. Best to get your nutrients from real food. But when things feel stressful and you don’t feel like you’re eating at your best capacity, then at least I know I’m getting the goods I need.
