Van JOrdan: Please, how can I identify that an antioxidan - forexample quercitin - if is oxidized form in the current brand ? or this brand contain reduced form of quercitin? how can i know this? or c vitamin or any antioxidant?
And please give me the dosage(mg/bodyweight/) the antioxidants what are you taking. Thank you
When an antioxidant is recommended (i.e. quercetin), you don't need to worry about
if you are getting the oxidized form or not. Because it's an anti-oxidant, it can't be oxidized. What I was referring to was a lot of vitamins and minerals on the market.
As for dosage... I do not go by body weight. Despite the fact that H2O2 is damaging the body, it exists only in micromolar (ug) quantities, so it doesn't require a lot to anti-oxidize it. Also, most of these supplements are food sourced so the body will urinate out any excesses. The only exception is sulforaphane, it seems to disagree with UCers if taken at full dose right away. From my own experience, I believe it's because it's doing something to the gut bacteria. Some research I've read on sulforaphane indicates it has a profound positive impact on the gut microbiome, and if you take high doses to start with, the shift may be too sudden.
Quercetin - 250mg once daily
Grapeseed extract - 400mg daily
Curcumin (phytosomal/mervia) - 500mg twice daily
Sulforaphane - 20mg daily (start small and increase gradually)
Vitamin C (naturally sourced as camu) - 1000mg daily. Acerola cherry and rosehip are another good source. Do not use synthetic ascorbic acid as it does not appear as effective for this problem (I tried).
Rutin - 100mg dailythank you very much...
ohh.. im suprised, you take " relative small" amounts of these antioxidants...
i think more uc patient eat similar antioxidant e vitamin, c vit and other... but they can not go into remssion. what do you think why?
and any other person here or anywere has reproduced your result?
