The following are some of the nutrients we provide you at Jellison Integrative MD to promote better health and wellness:
Glutathione – This mother of all antioxidants, is a key player in reducing oxidative stress in the body from free radicals. Glutathione can also help control inflammation in your body by interacting with your immunological response. Needed by every cell and tissue in the body, glutathione is a vital molecule for every physiological process in the body.
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) – NAC is a precursor in synthesizing the powerful antioxidant glutathione which helps to detox heavy metals and other harmful toxins. A natural liver protectant, NAC is also beneficial for certain gut conditions such as leaky gut syndrome and ulcerative colitis because it can reduce tissue inflammation and improve your intestinal barrier function.
New research also shows positive effects of NAC on neurodegenerative conditions and may even protect against Alzheimer’s disease.
Phosphatidylcholine – This phospholipid serves as the body’s main source of choline, an essential nutrient, and a precursor to acetylcholine. It helps remove harmful toxins in the brain while also allowing for appropriate nutrient absorption. Phosphatidylcholine is also beneficial for the prevention and treatment of various forms of liver disease/toxicity. Phosphatidylcholine has been shown to help those struggling with Alzheimer’s disease, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, mold illness, chronic inflammatory response syndrome, mood disorders, and more.
B vitamins – B vitamins are well known for their boost of energy, but they are great immune boosters and natural detoxifiers. B vitamins are beneficial for your nervous system and are essential for brain health. Among many other benefits, B vitamins have been shown to improve cognitive decline and help those struggling with brain fog.
Magnesium – Magnesium supports hundreds of chemical reactions in the body. The fourth most common mineral in the body, magnesium has been shown to help fight inflammation. Magnesium promotes optimal muscle and nerve function, relaxation, bone formation, headache relief, and much more.
Vitamin C – Vitamin C is best known for its antioxidant effect of reducing DNA-damaging free radicals in the body which decreases inflammation. By boosting your immune system, vitamin C can also help prevent infection and other diseases. It has also been used as a complementary therapy with cancer patients. Symptoms of chronic fatigue have been alleviated through vitamin C therapy.
Myer’s Cocktail – A mix between vitamin C, B vitamins and magnesium, Myer’s Cocktail has been shown to treat conditions such as fibromyalgia, migraines, chronic fatigue, muscle spasms, upper respiratory infections, cardiovascular disease, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease among other disorders.
