There is one nutrient that can help combat nearly any toxicity and that nutrient is vitamin C. Ensuring adequate vitamin C intake is so important. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient in the diet as the body cannot manufacture vitamin C; therefore, we have to ingest enough in our diet.
What are the best dietary sources of vitamin C? Fruits and vegetables are the best food sources of vitamin C, but most people do not eat enough fruits and vegetables to maintain optimal vitamin C levels. Furthermore, our toxic environment has increased our need for vitamin C as it aids all the detoxification pathways.
Dr. David Brownstein, a well-known Holistic MD along with others, suggest taking 3-5,000mg/day of vitamin C. Buffered Vitamin C Ascorbate seems to be the most tolerated form for this large dose. If you get diarrhea with these doses of vitamin C, you can lower the dose.
Other nutrients which help prevent damage from radioactivity include vitamin E–as mixed tocopherols at 200UI/day), alpha lipoic acid (300mg twice per day), and unrefined sea salt (1/2-1 tsp/day). Also, eating a healthy diet, free of refined foods, is a big help.
