Re: Another confirming diet source.The importance of synergy.


This is only part of the article but it shows the importance of taking the additional vitamins as listed in the vitamin E enema procedure instructions.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SYNERGY


While the scientific research is quite clear that
diets high in
antioxidants are protective against many diseases, the
data is not as solid
with antioxidant supplements. There are three main
points to keep in mind
when looking at research with antioxidant supplements:

The antioxidant system of the body relies on a
complex interplay of
many different dietary antioxidants.
Taking any single antioxidant nutrient is not
enough. Total
protection requires a strategic, comprehensive dietary
and supplement program.
Although dietary supplements are important, they
cannot replace the
importance of consuming a diet rich in antioxidants.

A shortcoming of many of the intervention studies with
antioxidant
nutrients is that researchers often focus on the
effects of just one
factor. In a way, this is like judging an entire
symphony by listening to a
single trombone. Such research has its value, but it's
not complete and
often raises more questions than it answers.

Antioxidants and Heart Disease

The research is quite clear that dietary antioxidant
nutrients like
vitamin E, lycopene, lutein, selenium, and vitamin C
offer significant
protection against the development of cardiovascular
disease. Fats and
cholesterol are particularly susceptible to free
radical damage. When
damaged, fats and cholesterol form lipid peroxides and
oxidized cholesterol
which can then damage the artery walls as well as
accelerate the
progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the
arteries). Antioxidants
block the formation of these damaging compounds.

While diets rich in antioxidant nutrients have
consistently shown
tremendous protection against cardiovascular disease,
clinical trials
utilizing antioxidant vitamins and minerals have
produced inconsistent
results.1,2 This failure may be due to several
factors, most importantly the
fact that the human antioxidant system represents a
complex scenario of
interacting components. It is unlikely that any single
antioxidant
would be proven to be effective especially in the
absence of a supporting
cast. Most antioxidants require some sort of "partner"
antioxidant that
allows it to work more efficiently. The most salient
example of this
point is the partnership between the two primary
antioxidants in the
human body - vitamin C and vitamin E. Vitamin C is an
"aqueous phase"
antioxidant while vitamin E is a "lipid phase"
antioxidant. Although some
studies have shown that supplementation with these
nutrients reduces
atherosclerotic lesions more protection is likely
required to insure
optimal
effect.3 In addition to vitamin C, vitamin E also
requires selenium
and coenzyme Q10 to work efficiently (discussed in
more detail below).
Further adding to the shortcoming of many of the
studies on antioxidant
nutrients is the lack of consideration on the
importance of
phytochemicals and plant derived antioxidants that in
addition to exerting benefit
on their own are well-known to potentiate the
activities of vitamin and
mineral antioxidants.

The support of non-antioxidant vitamins and minerals
may also be
important in assisting the effectiveness of
antioxidants. Taking a multiple
vitamin and mineral supplement seems appropriate.
