Hi, Mr. Fonorow,
I am a 48 years old and will 49 in August and used to be on Ascorsine 9 and Unique E but has switch to Ascorbade. I had EKG about a month ago and it showed borderline ECG but with Sinus tarchycardia and with Right atrial enlargement. The doctor said everything was fine so I searched on the internet on my return and found Tower Ascorsine 9. I used it for a month and run out. I saw a drastic improvement with the Ascorsine 9 and the Unique E.
I purchased them from VCF. I decided to switch to Ascorbade which I started about four days ago. I take barley grass powder for alkalinity which I know it does contain Vitamin K.
My question is will the vitamin k in the barley and Ascorbade interfere with the Unique E. I take one UE 2 times a day.
The following is the list of supplement I take daily.
Daily Advantage (http://www.drdavidwilliams.com, Ascorbade, Unique E, and 400mg Magnesium Citrate once a day)
I need your help please. Hope to hear from u soon. Thank you very much.
I am happy (and not surprised) to hear of the improvement within one month with A-9/Unique-E.
Ascorbade is similar. Yes it does contain vitamin K, but it (Ascorbade) does not contain as much lysine. Ascorbade is designed for longer term maintance and for endogenous growth hormone stimulation.
One role of Vitamin K is to act like a hormone and move calcium from soft tissue into bones. You get some in leafy green vegetables and the intestinal flora in your gut make some. Certain drugs block vitamin K, leading to calcium build ups in soft tissues.
We strongly recommend vitamin K as an addition to the basic pauling therapy. (However, because so many people are on the 'rat poisons' (e.g. warfarin and coumadin, etc. ) Tower was forced to take vit. K out of A-9.
But no, vitamin K will not interfere as you say with Unique-E. In fact, new research shows that they should be taken together.
As far as the supplements, I would consider adding good EFA (e.g. a good fish oil with Omega/3s) and at your age, you may soon require even more CoQ10 than is contained in either Ascorbade and/or Ascorsine-9.
