  • Supplements could reduce the risk of age-related disease without inducing toxicity.
  • Studies indicating that certain supplements could reduce homocysteine serum levels and therefore lower heart attack and stroke risk.
  • An even stronger endorsement for the use of vitamin supplements was in a 2002 issue of the Journal of the American
  • People who got enough vitamins may be able to prevent such common illnesses as cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis.
  • Suboptimal levels of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 are a risk factor for heart disease, colon and breast cancers; low levels of vitamin D contribute to osteoporosis; and inadequate levels of the antioxidant vitamins A, E, and C may increase the risk of cancer and heart disease.
  • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has spent enormous resources trying to prevent people from supplementing with folic acid.
  • The FDA argues against folic acid supplementation because the presence of folic acid in blood could mask a serious vitamin B12 deficiency.
  • It is recommended that folic acid supplements be fortified with vitamin B12 as a prudent way of gaining the cardiovascular benefits of folic acid without risking a B12 deficiency.
  • The use of folic acid to reduce cardiovascular disease, the FDA still does not accept that folic acid has any benefit other than preventing a certain type of birth defect.
  • A Study showed that long-term supplementation with folic acid reduces the risk of colon cancer by an astounding 75% in women.
  • The authors of this study explained that folic acid obtained from supplements had a stronger protective effect against colon cancer than folic acid consumed in the diet.
  • This new study helps confirm the work of Dr. Bruce Ames, the famous molecular biologist who authored numerous articles showing that folic acid is extremely effective in preventing initial DNA mutations that can lead to cancer later in life.
  • This Harvard report, showing a 75% reduction in colon cancer incidence, demonstrated that the degree of protection against cancer is correlated with how long a DNA-protecting substance (folic acid) is consumed. Women who took more than 400 mcg of folic acid daily for 15 years experienced the 75% reduction in colon cancer, whereas short-term supplementation with folic acid produced only marginal protection.
  • There now exists a massive body of evidence that supplementation with folic acid can prevent both cardiovascular disease and cancer, yet the FDA has proposed rules that would prohibit the American public from even learning about these benefits.
  • Colon cancer will kill 47 000 Americans this year. It is unfortunate that the FDA did not "allow" these colon cancer victims to learn about folic acid in time.
  • Some doctors still believe that vitamin C causes kidney stones; however, a report from Harvard Medical School showed no increased risk of kidney stones when evaluating a study period.
  • This report showed that women who consumed 1500 mg or more daily of vitamin C were no more likely to develop kidney stones than women who consumed less than 250 mg of vitamin C daily.
  • The study did reveal that women who consumed 40 mg or more of vitamin B6 were 34% less likely to develop kidney stones compared to women taking fewer than 3 mg a day of B6.
  • In the early 1990s, several large population studies showed a reduction in cardiovascular disease in those who consumed vitamin C. The media reported on some of these findings and this favorable publicity helped push a bill through Congress that prevented the FDA from banning high-potency vitamin C and other supplements.
  • The study, which evaluated 11 348 participants over 10 years, showed that high vitamin C intake extended average lifespan and reduced mortality from cardiovascular disease by 42%.
  • Scientists concluded that "vitamin C deficiency, as assessed by low plasma ascorbate concentration, is a risk factor for coronary heart disease".
  • People with the lowest levels of vitamin C were twice as likely to die when compared to those with the highest serum vitamin C levels.
  • The question for those who want to achieve maximum health is:
  • Suggested that you consume fruits, vegetables, and supplements that are high in vitamin C.
  • Elevated homocysteine levels were shown to cause rapid onset of endothelial (arterial lining) dysfunction. This type of dysfunction reduces blood flow and can facilitate a lethal arterial spasm. Vitamin C inhibited arterial dysfunction by interfering with oxidative stress mechanisms.
  • The doctors conducting the study stated that acute impairment of vascular endothelial function can be prevented by pretreatment with vitamin C.
  • Vitamin C restored arterial dilation response and blood flow velocity in patients with heart failure.
  • Published research findings suggest that vitamin C may reduce mortality in coronary artery disease patients, increase life span, and possibly eliminate the effects of nitrate tolerance in those taking nitrate drugs.
  • Although not recognized in the medical establishment as a therapy for coronary artery disease, there now exists an accumulated wealth of evidence that vitamin C has beneficial effects in the treatment of heart-related illnesses.
  • Conventional medicine says that only 200 mg a day of vitamin C is needed, despite findings showing that high doses of vitamin C are required to produce optimal benefit.
  • Meanwhile, the FDA continues to hold the position that no more than 90 mg daily for men and 75 mg daily for women of vitamin C is needed.
  • The most frequent criticism regarding supplemental vitamin intake is that it produces "expensive urine," because water soluble vitamins, such as vitamin C and the B vitamins, are excreted into the bladder within hours of ingestion.
  • These vitamins are beneficial in spite of their rapid excretion; moreover, it is desirable to have a bladder full of vitamins because certain vitamins inhibit chemicals that cause bladder cancer.
  • High intake of vitamin A and beta-carotene was associated with a 48% reduction in bladder cancer incidence compared to the lowest levels of vitamin A and beta-carotene intake.
  • People taking higher amounts of vitamin C had a 50% reduced rate of bladder cancer.
  • Those who took 502 mg or more of vitamin C daily had a 60% reduction in bladder cancer compared to those who took no vitamin C.
  • For those who took multivitamin supplements for at least 10 years, the reduction in bladder cancer was 61% compared to people who took no vitamin supplements.
  • High intake of fried foods was associated with double the risk of bladder cancer.
  • Studies show that antioxidant supplements reduce the risk of cataracts.
  • Although cataracts are usually treatable, a disease called wet macular degeneration is not.
  • Those who eat spinach and collard greens have low rates of macular degeneration, and extracts from these vegetables thought to protect against this blinding disease are now available in dietary supplements that contain lutein and zeaxanthin.
  • The higher the level of vitamin E in red blood cells, the lower the risk of carotid atherosclerosis.
  • In men with the highest levels of carotid atherosclerotic plaques, the lowest levels of vitamin E, selenium, and carotenoids were found.
  • Scientists concluded by stating: "Our findings give some epidemiological support to the hypothesis that lipid peroxidation and low antioxidant status are involved in the early stages of atherosclerosis".
  • A study in the journal Atherosclerosis showed that people who took a 900 mg garlic supplement every day for 4 years had 5-18% less plaque buildup in their carotid arteries compared to the placebo group.
  • The women in the treatment group showed a 4.6% decrease in carotid plaque volume over a 4-year period, whereas the placebo group showed a 5.3% increase in artery-clogging plaque.
  • Fear of cancer is a major reason why people take dietary supplements.
  • As has already been shown, there is a compelling body of evidence that cancer risk can be reduced by taking the proper supplements over an extended period of time.
  • Breast cancer risks are significantly lower in women who consume alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein/zeaxanthin, and vitamins A and C.
  • Among premenopausal women who consume moderate amounts of alcohol (a known risk factor in breast cancer), beta-carotene lowered risk.
  • Premenopausal women who consume 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables daily had a modestly lower risk of breast cancer than those who had less than 2 servings daily.
  • A study reported that the tomato extract lycopene was the most effective nutrient shown to protect against the development of prostate cancer.
  • Lycopene strongly reduced prostate cancer risk and more importantly, lowered the risk for aggressive cancer.
  • Lycopene can help prevent pancreatic, prostate, and a host of other cancers.
  • 30 mg of lycopene supplements daily slowed the growth of existing prostate cancer and lowered serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) readings by 20%.
  • Men with high intake of vitamin E were 35% as likely to develop colorectal adenomas as men with low vitamin E intake.
  • Adenomas are neoplastic lesions that are considered precursors to colon cancer.
  • The use of multivitamins, vitamin E, and calcium supplements was found to be associated with a lower incidence of recurrent adenomas in patients with previous neoplasia who underwent follow-up colonoscopy.
  • This study found a protective effect against the recurrence of precancerous adenomas when any vitamin supplement was used.
  • Women with high folate intake were 40% less likely to develop adenomas of the colon than women with low folate intake.
  • For those who already have cancer, the research shows a prolongation of lifespan with proper supplementation.
  • High doses (mega doses) of vitamins C and E in combination with other carefully selected antioxidants are likely needed in order to achieve sufficient prevention and treatment of malignant diseases.
  • In a study in Cancer Research, vitamin E succinate was shown to inhibit growth and induce apoptotic cell death of estrogen receptor-negative human breast cancer cells.
  • These findings suggest that vitamin E succinate may be of clinical use in the treatment and possible prevention of human breast cancers.
  • Research clearly shows the risk of cancer is reduced in those who supplement with adequate amounts of nutrients, such as selenium, folate, carotenoids, vitamins, and other plant extracts.
  • The use of vitamin E reduced the risk of death from all causes by 34%.
  • Effects were strongest for coronary artery disease, where vitamin E resulted in a 63% reduction in death from heart attack.
  • In addition, use of vitamin E resulted in a 59% reduction in cancer mortality.
  • When the effects of vitamins C and E were combined, overall mortality was reduced by 42% (compared to 34% for vitamin E alone).
  • It compared people who took low-potency "one-a-day" multiple vitamins to those who took higher-potency vitamins C and E.
  • taking "one-a-day" multivitamins did not do any better than people taking nothing at all, which supports Life
  • Vitamin E reduced coronary artery disease mortality by more than 40% after only 2 years.
  • The effects of aging may be partially reversible with a combination of acetyl-L-carnitine and lipoic acid.
  • Studies showed that supplementation with these 2 nutrients resulted in a partial reversal of the decline of mitochondrial membrane function while consumption of oxygen significantly increased.
  • Human aging is characterized by lethargy, infirmity, and weakness.
  • There is now evidence that supplementation with 2 over-the-counter supplements can produce a measurable anti-aging effect.
  • Supplementation with acetyl-L-carnitine and lipoic acid resulted in improved memory in.
  • Electron microscopic studies in the hippocampus region of the brain showed that acetyl-L-carnitine and lipoic acid reversed age-associated mitochondrial structural decay. 
  • Proper hormone replacement can produce an immediate improvement in quality of life and prevent many diseases.
  • Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is one of several important hormones whose production in the body diminishes rapidly as people age past 35 years.
  • There now exists a wide body of evidence that supplementation with DHEA can prevent many degenerative diseases, while improving feelings of well-being and alleviating depression.
  • In both humans and animals, the decline of DHEA production with aging is associated with immune depression, increased mortality, increased risk of several different cancers, loss of sleep, and decreased feelings of well-being.
  • DHEA replacement has shown a favorable effect on osteoclasts and lymphoid cells, an effect that may delay osteoporosis.
  • Low levels of DHEA inhibit energy metabolism, thus increasing the risk of heart disease and diabetes mellitus.
  • Studies conducted on humans show essentially no toxicity at doses that restore DHEA to youthful levels.
  • DHEA deficiency may expedite the development of some diseases that are common in the elderly.
  • Depression ratings, as well as aspects of memory performance, significantly improved.
  • DHEA supplementation (50 mg daily) significantly elevated mood in elderly people.
  • Supplement your diet with a multivitamin/multinutrient formula
  • Ingest plenty of omega-3 fatty acids
  • Maintain optimal CoQ10 blood levels
  • Optimize your Vitamin D blood levels
  • Optimize mitochondrial function
  • Restore youthful hormone balance
  • Preserve brain function
  • Support bone health
  • Maintain healthy prostate function (for men only)
  • Support breast health (for women only)
  • Inhibit inflammation with curcumin
