Body is > 2/3 water; used as lubricant, base for saliva, joint fluids, regulates body temperature, detox. agent, alleviates constipation, regulates metabolism; Neutralizes acidity; ~ 75% in U.S. have mild, chronic dehydration.

WHOLE-FOOD DIETARY SUPPLEMENT

Green Drink

Organic, whole food supplement 2 Tbsp./day

A powdered, whole food “green” drink ensures MOST of your day's needed vitamins, minerals, trace-minerals, enzymes and protein amino acids in bioavailable food-form. Someone with a serious health problem should take a GREEN DRINK 2-3 times/day.Take Green Drink Shaken in diluted juice (preferably from 1/2 a fresh lemon or lime) (i.e. James Bond style -“Shaken, not stirred”). Add the powdered Rath/Pauling Therapy ingredients (listed below) to green drink to improve taste.
Selenium (200mcg/day seleno-methionine) Part of body's main AO enzyme GPx *; prevents cancer, boosts immunity; lifts mood; antiviral; Brazil nuts (1 fresh shelled ~100mcg, 1 pre-shelled ~12-25mcg); garlic grown in Se-rich soil;
Manganese Part of AO enzyme SOD**; Cofactor for procollagen synthesis; Whole grain, nuts, seeds, chickpeas;
Zinc (~10-15 mg /day) (supplement as zinc acetate, zinc gluconate, zinc picolinate, or zinc sulfate). Part of AO enzyme SOD**; Cofactor for procollagen synthesis; 1/4 Cup Soaked/sprouted raw or dry-roasted pumpkin seeds contains ~4 mg; 3.5oz beef / pork / chicken contains ~3-5mg; 1/4; shellfish is a high zinc source but not recommended because of toxin content;
Copper (2-4 mg /day) Part of AO enzyme SOD**; component of enzyme (lysyl oxidase) required to make collagen/elastin.

ESSENTIAL FATS (Omega-3 and Omega-6)

CRUCIAL to maintaining and restoring health

EFAS - THE "FATS OF LIFE"

CHART of Recommended Daily Doses of Omega-3/Omega-6 

ANTIOXIDANTS (in addition to Vitamin C in Rath/Pauling Therapy)

VITAMIN A (β-carotene)
10,000 IU 
Vitamin A - butter, cream, cheese, WHOLE milk, 1 tsp. quality cod liver oil;  β-carotene (Must eat fat for its conversion to Vitamin A)  E.g. in 2 Carrots, ½ C boiled spinach, broccoli,sweet potatoes, apricots, acorn squash, pumpkin, cantaloupe, mango, collard greens;  

Vitamin A - "The Grass Vitamin"

B VITAMINS: Convert homocysteine (byproduct from meat and dairy metabolism) to less toxic amino acids.
B3 (niacin) ( 20 mg NE/day) (supplement as nicotinamide, aka nicotinamide - close to active form NAD)
B3
Therapeutic dose: 1000-1500 mg /day (in divided doses)
NE stands for Niacin Equivalents. 1 NE = 1 mg niacin = 60 mg tryptophan (this amino acid can be converted to niacin in the body). Yeast, meat and legumes are good low-sugar sources.

Therapetic dose only for those who want to lower cholesterol - dose begins at ~1000mg for most people. Inositol hexaniacinate is a "flush-free" niacin supplement / minimizes liver damage;
B6 (pyridoxine) (< 65 yrs: 2mg / day;  >=65 yrs: 3 mg / day) (supplement as pyridoxine hydrochloride) Underlying systemic inflammation (present in most diseases) tends to lower body's B6 status. Wild salmon, turkey, chicken, spinach and hazelnuts are good low-sugar sources. Also bananas, russet potatoes and prunes are good B3 sources..
B9 (folic acid) (400-1200mcg /day)  
B12 (100-200 mcg / day)    
VITAMIN C (Ascorbic Acid):  

RATH-PAULING THERAPY to STRENGTHEN CONNECTIVE TISSUE

Vitamin C
 1g (~½tsp) x 3 doses (preventative)
/2g x 3 doses  (therapeutic)
/3g x 3 doses (serious therapeutic)
Moderate amounts in fresh fruits and vegetables - largely destroyed by high heat and > 2 months freezing; dissolves in cooking water (somewhat retained in soup water); Recycles vitamin E; Chelating (metal grabbing); MAJOR ANTIOXIDANT; Cofactor for collagen/elastin production - main components of cartilage, ligaments, tendons in joints, bones and teeth; reason why broken bones regenerate and wounds heal; strengthens blood vessels (preventing atherosclerosis); responsible for skin strength and elasticity (without which we are looking at wrinkles!) Central Nervous System has inbuilt double-pumps to increase its cellular vitamin C intake (i.e your brain thinks its important).

Vitamin C - Gods Medicine

Lysine 1g x3 /2g x3 /3g x 3 doses Needed to make connective tissue collagen and elastin; also prevents collagen breakdown;
Proline .5g x 1 /.5g x2 /.5g x 3 doses Needed to make connective tissue collagen and elastin;
EGCG
200 mg 4 times / day,  if cancer present)
RATH CELLULAR SOLUTION  (enhances Rath-Pauling therapy to prevent cancer metasasis): Powerful AO found in green tea.  add  EGCG and extra Proline to THERAPEUTIC dose of  Rath- Pauling Therapy. Daily doses: 2g Vitamin C  3x / day; 2g  Lysine 3x / day;  0.5g Proline 4 x /day; 200 mg EGCG 4x / day
Vitamin D
2000-4000 IU
Required for mineral absorption; 30 mins. Sunbathing provides about 1000 IU; 1 tsp. Green Pastures™cod liver oil = ~1100 IU; only in fats of animals that have been in the sun or ate D.

Vitamin D - "The Sunshine Vitamin"

Vitamin E
400 IU / day
Use natural mixed d-forms of tochopherol (not synthetic dl-forms); major antioxidant; In wheatgerm, nuts and seeds; protects essential fatty acids from oxidation.

Vitamin K (K1 & K2)

K2 -  150 mcg / day

Potent AO against heart disease and osteoporosis (activates osteocalcin - structural framework helps anchor calcium in bone); needed to clot blood (to convert prothrombin to thrombin); K1 form is in dark green leafy vegetables, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, liver, egg yolks, butter, grains, avocado, kiwi, cod liver oil; If supplementing, use K2 (form made by your intestinal bacteria)  Vitamin K
CoQ10
Ubiquinol is active form (superior to ubiquinone). Typical dose - 100 mg /day; 200+mg /day (with health problems)
Supplement if over 40, also a vital supplement if taking statin drugs, which interfere with body's manufacture of COQ10. Essential for energy production in cell mitochondria (heart uses high energy for pumping action and electrical function); powerful fat-soluble antioxidant; helps lower blood pressure; Mostly synthesized by body (but decreases with age), diet supplies ~10% - beef (8oz=>8mg), organ meats, sardines, mackerel.

CoQ10 - Spark and Dampener

FIBER

Do not eat isolated oat or wheat bran in any form (E.g. added to bread recipes or in bran cereals, such as Bran Buds®) -they are too high in phytate (an antinutrient)

FLAX SEED (Organic, Fresh-ground or cold-milled)

Japanese typically eat ~12mg /day.

“Iodine -The Universal Mineral”

Magnesium

200 mg  2x/day

Take with a mealBest oral Mg supplements are minerally chelated: magnesium-(glycinate, lysinate, orotate, succinate, taurinate, aspartate, alpha-ketogluconate or arginate) or use magnesum citrate.

Magnesium - Missing Miracle MineralHowever, the best way to quickly increase magnesium levels is transdermally:

Transdermal Magnesium 

Calcium

~300mg /day (if consuming dairy)

~300mg 2x/day (if no dairy)

Best Ca sources: Microcrystalline Calcium hydroxyapatite (low heat processed from organic animals), Calcium from egg-shells, or Calcium Citrate. Take with a mealHere: dairy intake for determining your dose does not include butter
Probiotic
Tens of billions CFU/day
To reestablish a healthy balance of good bacterial flora crucial for immune system function, take a high-quality supplement containing ~50 billion CFU/day for 2-3 months. Maintain flora with natural food probiotics or continue taking supplement (maybe at a lower dose).

PROBIOTICS -“For Life”
