Before we can begin to supplement our diet with remedies for common ailments or specific indications, I believe
everyone should take a complete and comprehensive vitamin and mineral supplement containing over 30 vitamins and minerals. This formula should provide a balanced assortment of vitamins and minerals in a proprietary ratio to support complete cellular function. Emphasis should be placed on B vitamins, particularly the B vitamins that are not required to be converted by the liver into their metabolic form. Minerals that are bound to amino acid chelates in most cases are weak structures that break apart in the digestive tract and are not absorbed easily. A good multivitamin and mineral supplement should contain minerals that are bound to the amino acid glycine which forms a glycinate chelate. These are truly the finest mineral chelates for complete absorption. I highly recommend you find a multivitamin and mineral supplement that provides the basic nutrients in 2 tablets daily. Adults can take 1 tablet twice daily with meals and children can take 1-2 tablets a day with meals. Adults may increase to 2 tablets twice daily for maximum health benefits. Any vitamin and mineral formula that recommends a dosage of 1 tablet daily will never supply sufficient quantities for complete metabolic function.
Our body requires all the vitamins and minerals on a daily basis to complete its metabolic functions. However, in my 45 years of research, and after developing 400 nutritional formulations, I found one ingredient that stands out amongst all other ingredients as having the greatest impact on our health. That one substance is curcumin. It holds more potential for health and well-being than any other substance. If I were allowed only one supplement to take it would be curcumin. I have attached an abstract below that summarizes the powerful medicinal potential that curcumin holds for the
elimination of dozens of diseases.
CURCUMIN: The Indian Solid Gold
Bharat B. Aggarwal, Chitra Sundaram, Nikita Malani,and Haruyo Ichikawa
Abstract: Turmeric, derived from the plant Curcuma longa, is a gold-colored spice commonly used in the Indian subcontinent, not only for health care but also for the preservation of food and as a yellow dye for textiles. Curcumin, which gives the yellow color to turmeric, was first isolated almost two centuries ago, and its structure as diferuloylmethane was determined in 1910. Since the time of Ayurveda (1900 BC) numerous therapeutic activities have been assigned to turmeric for a wide variety of diseases and conditions, including those of the skin, pulmonary, and gastrointestinal systems, aches, pains, wounds, sprains, and liver disorders. Extensive research within the last half century has proven that most of these activities, once associated with turmeric, are due to curcumin. Curcumin has been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer activities and thus has a potential against various malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illnesses. These effects are mediated through the regulation of various transcription factors, growth factors, inflammatory cytokines, protein kinases, and other enzymes. Curcumin exhibits activities similar to recently discovered tumor necrosis factor blockers (e.g., HUMIRA, REMICADE, and ENBREL), a vascular endothelial cell growth factor blocker (e.g., AVASTIN), human epidermal growth factor receptor blockers (e.g., ERBITUX, ERLOTINIB, and GEFTINIB), and a HER2 blocker (e.g., HERCEPTIN). Considering the recent scientific bandwagon that multitargeted therapy is better than monotargeted therapy for most diseases, curcumin can be considered an ideal “Spice for Life”.
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 100 mg, Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal-5-phosphate/P-5-P) 20 mg, Calcium (as calcium chloride and calcium phosphate) 110 mg, Magnesium (as magnesium glycerophosphate) 25 mg, Ammonium chloride 200mg, Betaine HCL 200 mg. Take with each meal, and again at bedtime if you have a painful bone spur. For maintenance, once or twice daily is sufficient. Age, weak bone structure, physical activity, and pH imbalances can cause build-up of what is essentially “dead calcium”, which results in painful bone spurs. Acidifying factors such as ascorbic acid (vitamin C), P-5-P, calcium chloride, calcium phosphate, magnesium glycerophosphate and ammonium chloride can dissolve bone spurs. Betaine HCL helps enhance the absorption of Vitamin C.
Vitamin A (as retinyl acetate) 5000 IU, Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 100 mg, Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal-5-phosphate/P-5-P) 5 mg, Pantothenic Acid (as d-calcium pantothenate) 25 mg, Zinc (as zinc glycinate chelate) 15 mg, Chromium (as chromium picolinate) 100 mcg, Potassium (as potassium chloride) 100 mg, Sulfur (as sublimed) 100 mg, Burdock (Arctium lappa L.) Root Extract (4:1) 50 mg, Boswellia (Boswellia serrata) Gum Resin Extract standardized to contain >70% Total Organic and Boswellic acids with AKBA > 10%, with less than 5% beta boswellic acids 50 mg. Use twice daily. Vitamin A as retinyl acetate helps fight the bacteria associated with acne flare-ups and helps prevent the buildup of dead skin cells that lead to clogged pores. Sulfur helps cleanse the intestinal tract and stops the over production of oil in the skin.
Proprietary complex 500 mg, containing Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) Root Extract standardized to contain ≥5% withanolides, Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) Root Extract standardized to contain ≥5% rosavins and ≥1.8% salidrosides). Take one to three times daily, ideally on an empty stomach. A very safe and natural herbal formula to reduce stress and depression. It can also support adrenal function. This stress formula is ideal for those who want to avoid animal extracts. This formula can also improve work performance, increase physical and mental stamina, and increase energy levels and libido.
Vitamin C 200 mg, Vitamin B6 (as pyrixodal-5-phosphate) 10 mg, Pantothenic Acid (as calcium pantothenate) 100 mg, Adrenal Extract (freeze dried) 450 mg, L-Tyrosine 450 mg, Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) Root (5:1) Extract 125 mg, Rehmannia (Rehmannia glutinosa) Root (5:1) Extract 75 mg, Pregnenolone 15 mg, DHEA 10 mg. Take up to three times daily. Use for fatigue, stress, exhaustion, unnecessary crying spells, negative attitude, muscle weakness, unfounded fears, allergies, hives, low blood pressure, salt and sugar cravings, asthma, and respiratory disorders.
Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) (Glycyrrhiza glabra) Root Extract standardized to contain 3.5% glabridin, > 10% total flavonoids. Take twice daily. Look for a form of DGL that is standardized for the bioflavonoid content with proven effectiveness for reducing IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), GERD (gastrointestinal esophageal reflux disorder), and any intestinal tract irritability as well as ulcers of the stomach and duodenal. Earlier research suggested that DGL had to be chewed in order to be effective. I think this is due to the fact that older versions of DGL, the chewable form, is a crude non-standardized form of DGL and several grams of DGL two or three times a day was required to be effective. Today, research has developed a highly standardized DGL based on its bioflavonoid content. For the most effective benefits, take 75 mg to 150 mg daily. Large quantities of licorice extract may cause high blood pressure. DGL is deglycyrrhizinated and therefore, will not cause an increase in blood pressure. DGL is more effective than any medication for GERD and ulcers.
D-Limonene and sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) berry and seed oil, extracted by supercritical CO2 extraction technology, 600 mg. Take this formula once or twice a day. This formula provides natural relief from heartburn, acid indigestion, GERD and upset stomach. The blend of D-limonene and sea buckthorn oil provides support for the digestive system and relief of acid indigestion. D-limonene is extracted from orange peel. Sea buckthorn oil is extracted from the seeds and fruit pulp from sea buckthorn berries. These ingredients will provide a healthy mucous membrane throughout the digestive tract and prevent or reduce acid indigestion and reflux.
Narrow-leaved Coneflower 20 mg, (Echinacea angustifoliae radix) Root Extract, standardized for proprietary echinacosides. Take 20 mg twice daily for occasional use. For aggressive support, 40 mg twice daily. May take 40 mg at bedtime to support restful sleep. This formula contains a specially selected sub-species of Echinacea angustifolia that safely and effectively reduces anxiety and panic attacks. It can be used for occasional anxiety such as preparing for a presentation, air travel, or any situation that is upsetting to the individual. It can also be used for GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder). It is more effective than Librium, chlordiazepoxide, Xanax or Prozac. Reduction of anxiety can be realized usually within one to two hours. For severe anxiety, expect seven to twenty-one days to experience relief of an anxiety disorder. This formula was researched and developed at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest. Symptoms of anxiety are nervousness, excessive sweating, especially of the palms of the hands, headache, nausea, excessive fear and worry. There are absolutely no side effects from this formula nor does it cause sedation. Improves mood and feelings of well-being, improves sleep by reducing anxiety, increases energy levels, promotes mental health and emotional well-being, and helps restore healthy brain chemistry.
Vitamin A (as retinyl palmitate) 3,000 mcg RAE, Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol) 125 mcg, Vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7) 45 mcg. Take this formula once daily. This combination of ingredients helps prevent the build-up of calcium in the arteries, the first step in developing atherosclerosis. This combination also prevents dangerous blood clots and reduces inflammatory markers in the blood stream. Vitamin K2 helps transport excess calcium from the arteries to the bones where it is needed to increase bone density.
Proprietary complex containing Boswellia (Boswellia serrata) Gum Resin Extract standardized to contain >70% Total Organic and Boswellic acids with AKBA >10%, with less than 5% beta-boswellic acids, curcumin (Curcuma longa) rhizome extract enhanced with turmeric essential oils and standardized for curcuminoid complex (curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), Devil’s Claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) Root Extract standardized to contain >20% harpagosides (by HPLC).

Vitamin B6 (from pyridoxal-5-phosphate) 25 mg, Folate (as (6S)-5-methylfolate) (equivalent to 1600 mcg of (6S)-5 methyltetrahydrofolic acid, glucosamine salt) 800 mcg, Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) 1000 mcg. Take daily. These three B vitamins are extremely important in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, anxiety, depression, numbing and tingling of fingers, toes and burning feet, and providing energy, stamina and support for the nervous system. All pregnant women should take these forms of B vitamins as it is important to prevent neural tube defects in the fetus. Look for a combination of these three B vitamins in their methylated form which ensures absolute effectiveness. Regular B6, B12 and folic acid are required to be converted in the liver to the methylated form before they are effective for their health benefits. As high as 30-40% of the population cannot convert regular B6, B12 and folic acid to their methylated form. This is an extremely effective combination because it works immediately.

Folate (as (6S)-5-methylfolate)(equivalent to 400 mcg of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid, glucosamine salt) 200 mcg, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) 1000 mcg, Liver Fractions (predigested and concentrated, containing natural heme iron) 1300 mg. Take twice daily. Liver Extract provides high levels of heme iron combined with B12 and folate. Predigested and highly concentrated beef liver fractions from animals raised in Argentina without the use of chemical sprays, pesticides or antibiotics yields a high potency, fat free and cholesterol free freeze-dried liver extract. Liver contains a natural form of iron called heme iron which is necessary to carry the oxygen throughout the blood circulation. Liver extract, with its superior source of iron and other blood building nutrients, provides energy, stamina and an excellent sense of well being. People who have gone through a serious illness or a series of stress conditions would have lost a great deal of iron as happens during chemotherapy and radiation. The drug, Procrit, has been developed to help replace the iron lost during these stressful times. One out of every five women and 50% of all pregnant women are deficient in iron. A lack of iron causes fatigue, exhaustion, cold extremities and headaches. Liver extract contains a natural source of iron attached to hemoglobin which is absorbed up to 33% greater than non-heme iron. The liver fraction is non-toxic and non-constipating. Animal studies have proven that when fed liver extract they are able to live longer and healthier than with any other food. Animals subjected to a swimming test in cold water were able to swim approximately 15 minutes before tiring. When the same animals, after being rescued and fed liver extract for two weeks, were retested in the cold water study, their swimming time had increased on average to 90 minutes and some were able to swim until the test concluded which was approximately three hours. While liver extract contains an excellent source of natural vitamin B12, the formula is fortified with extra B12 using the biologically active form of methylcobalamin.

Iodine (as potassium iodide, sodium iodide, and molecular iodine [from kelp]). Take 3 mg, 6.25 mg, 12.5 mg or 25 mg daily (depending on the level of support needed) with food. All cells have a receptor site for iodine. The thyroid gland requires iodine for normal function. The tissues that require iodine besides the thyroid gland are breast, ovaries, uterus and prostate. Researchers believe that iodine can prevent cysts, nodules and cancer of the breast, ovaries, uterus and prostate. Iodine can destroy bacteria, viruses, and infection. Iodine is one of the most powerful detoxifiers of chlorine, fluoride, bromide and astatine (all competitors for iodine receptors), facilitating their removal from the body. Without sufficient levels of iodine, these four cancer-causing chemicals accumulate in our cells. With whole body iodine sufficiency, these toxic elements are discharged from our cells.

This powerful blend of ingredients reduces the severity and duration of a viral outbreak such as a cold, flu, or viral infection. The vitamins and minerals will support the immune system while the Elderberry will block the cellular invasion of the virus.
Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol) 5000 IU. Take daily. This formula provides Vitamin D in its preferred form by the body, D3. Low levels of Vitamin D have been associated with many health conditions, including increased risk of cold and flu, cancer, dementia, osteoporosis and heart disease. Researchers believe that Vitamin D3 can also reduce the risk of a heart attack by as much as 50%, reduce the risk of common cancers of the colon, prostate and breast by as much as 50%, reduce the risk of infectious diseases including the flu by as much as 90%, reduce the risk of type I diabetes and type 2 diabetes by 78%. Vitamin D3 also decreases the risk of dementia and depression by almost 80%. A deficiency of Vitamin D3 increases the risk of fibromyalgia and most neurological conditions such as MS and Parkinson’s disease. According to the Vitamin D Council in Omaha Nebraska, all adults should take a minimum of 5000 IUs per day. The majority of Americans are vitamin D deficient, and the RDA is not enough for significant disease prevention. This formula provides a way to obtain higher levels of vitamin D3 safely and on a daily basis.
