While it's important to follow the medication as directed by your doctor, there are supplements on our web site that may help relieve some of the symptoms. Please refer to our products that help reduce inflammation, and contain antioxidants. Vitamin C is also said to keep the lung airways healthy to help minimise wheezing. Fish oils are also recommended for good lung health and can assist in reducing airway constriction
Dr George Recommends:
Combine CortiTrophin with N-Acetyl Cysteine and Mag-C. If there is a lot of phlegm build-up add UniZyme. If there is chronic stress, add AdaptaPhase too.
Helps to maintain a balanced inflammatory response
This comprehensive formula includes multi-modal ingredients to help you maintain a balanced inflammatory response necessary in today’s society. Stephania tetrandra root extract, long used in China and Korea, suppresses multiple inflammatory cytokines, especially interleukin-6, associated with elevated C-reactive protein. Holy Basil leaf extract has natural COX-2 inhibition properties in vitro, and protects against noise-induced stress. Ginger and Boswellia serrata gum extract, both used extensively in the Ayurvedic tradition, contain numerous compounds that support optimal inflammatory modulation. Nettle leaf, green tea, and luteolin are also included for their inflammatory balancing effects.
Promoting healthy homocysteine levels
Lower homocysteine levels with Advanced Methyl Caps. The nutrients in Advanced Methyl Caps have been shown in research to reduce homocysteine levels up to 30%. Homocysteine is an amino acid (a protein molecule) that circulates in the blood. Diet and genetics influence the amount of homocysteine in the body. A high homocysteine level is sometimes referred to as hyperhomocysteinemia. Healthy levels of homocysteine support better circulation. Advanced Methyl Caps delivers a precise blend of the vitamins associated with lower homocysteine levels in their most functional forms and dose.
Regular supplementation is important
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an essential nutrient. Because it is water-soluble and dietary intake varies, regular supplementation is important. As an antioxidant, vitamin C works at the cellular level to reduce the effects of oxidation and premature aging. Since it is involved with the production of collagen and connective tissue, vitamin C helps maintain functional and strong connective tissue, blood vessels and capillaries, as well as healthy skin and gums. It also promotes healing and can reduce bruising. Vitamin C has also been shown to support immune and adrenal function, as well as balance the histamine response.*
HELP NEUTRALIZE THE CHEMICAL BY-PRODUCTS OF SMOKING
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) has been extensively researched for its antioxidant properties, particularly in its potential to neutralize the chemical by-products of smoking. Its ease of conversion to both extracellular and intracellular glutathione, coupled with its stability and long half-life in the body, makes it an economical and powerful antioxidant. N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC)—a derivative of the amino acid L-cysteine—forms the all-natural foundation of any daily lung support routine. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) can also help support the integrity of intestinal mucosal cells.*
Supporting a balanced inflammatory response
Boswellia serrata, also known as Indian frankincense, is the scientific name for a tree of moderate height which grows in the dry hilly areas of India and is widely used as an herb in the Ayurvedheic tradition for its ability to promote a normal, healthy inflammatory response. Derived from tapping the Boswellia tree, it has been available as a high quality extract in India for approximately 25 years and marketed under the name Sallaki. The resin, or gum from the plant contains boswellic acids, which may account for much of this plant’s beneficial activity. Research done in India and Germany has recently confirmed Boswellia’s therapeutic efficacy for supporting a balanced inflammatory response.
Vegetarian enzymes for digestive support
Digestive Enzymes help alleviate bloating, fullness, gastrointestinal discomfort and symptoms associated with occasional indigestion and gas. The plant-based enzymes in Digestive Enzymes work to digest a full range of foods, including protein, fats, carbohydrates, sugar and fiber. In today’s world, where we chew quickly and eat fast, many find the need for digestive support. These vegetarian enzymes (provided in a vegetarian capsule) are generally better tolerated than animal-source enzymes, and they work over a broader range in the intestinal tract.
Supports neurological, cognitive, immune & cardiac health
Coenzyme Q 10 supports neurological, cognitive, immune and cardiac health, including healthy blood pressure levels. It is also a powerful antioxidant. Coenzyme Q10 is one of the best researched dietary supplements in the world. Humans make Coenzyme Q 10 (CoQ10) in the body, but levels decrease with age and with lifestyle choices that compromise nutrition status. The best food sources of CoQ 10 are organ meats, foods not commonly consumed today. People with chronic health and immune conditions tend to be low in CoQ 10. Research has shown that supplementation improves levels of CoQ 10 in the body, and levels decline when supplementation stops.
Quercetin is a unique bioflavonoid derived from plant sources
Quercetin is a unique bioflavonoid derived from plant sources. In human cell culture studies, quercetin has been shown to inhibit histamine release. Bromelain, an enzyme found in fresh pineapple, supports the body in times of stress. Magnesium ascorbate is a buffered (non-acidic) form of vitamin C that, by delivering functional vitamin C and magnesium, helps strengthen immune response. Studies have also shown quercetin and bromelain help reduce inflammatory response.
This product is a blend of vitamins, amino acids, botanicals and adrenal concentrate designed to nourish the adrenal glands and support healthy blood sugar metabolism. This formula features adaptogenic herbs that support the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (“HPA”) axis, the portion of the neuroendocrine system that governs the stress response. These well-researched botanicals, especially Bacopa, also help promote cognitive function and memory, which may be negatively impacted with prolonged stress.*
