I can't get my CRP level down and every time I get my blood work it seems to get higher.
Dear Terry, “I am a 61 year old man in very good health. However, I can't get my CRP level down and every time I get my blood work it seems to get higher. At this point, my doctor just doesn't know what to do and he doesn’t want to put me on a statin. What do you suggest for this to get lower?” — Adolfo G., Phoenix, AZ
Dear Adolfo, I would first recommend a combination of high-absorption curcumin (from turmeric), tannin-free French grape seed, and turmerones from turmeric oil. These are the most powerful nutrients I have found for fighting inflammation. I would recommend that you take 2 softgels of this combination twice daily.
You should also consider adding an omega-3 supplement to your regimen as they are very effective at preventing inflammation. I prefer to get my omega-3 fatty acids from salmon, naturally bound to phospholipids, in a tablet form. This unique form utilizes a patented, gentle, cold water and enzyme process to extract naturally occurring marine phospholipids with the omega-3 fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). This process creates a supplement that is much closer to nature and how people were meant to absorb and use these nutrients. This is the way you’d get your omega-3s by eating fish – in the natural sn-2 position, not the sn-1 position into which they are twisted when extracted in fish oil. This means a big difference in stability and ability to transport omega-3s to where they are needed most. Therefore, you only need one or two tablets a day instead of handfuls of fish oil capsules or spoonsful of fishy tasting oils. I recommend taking 2 tablets daily.
Please be patient, allow at least three months before you can expect to see the benefits.
