Through personal experience we know that nutritional supplements play a key role in any recovery plan for environmental illnesses. Important nutrients are depleted during any chronic illness but this seems to be especially true for environmental illness sufferers who have been shown to exhibit deficiencies of multiple vitamins, minerals and other nutrients including vital anti-oxidant molecules such as cysteine and glutathione. We've selected a number of products over a range of categories that we recommend based on both personal experience, recommendation by leading physicians and review of clinical studies.

Jarrow Formulas Melatonin Sustain -- 120 Sustained Release Tablets

Jarrow Formulas Melatonin Sustain -- 120 Sustained Release Tablets

 

Manufacturer:
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland that aids biorhythm regulation. Biorhythm is disturbed by stress, crossing time zones and changing work shifts. Melatonin production also declines with age. Vitamin B6 aids melatonin metabolism.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
Melatonin is a hormone released by the pineal gland in the brain when light levels drop at night. The release of melatonin stimulates healthy sleep. In environmental illnesses however there is known to be endocrine disturbances that may affect the normal release of melatonin. Supplements are a cheap and effective way to increase melatonin levels and induce healthy sleep patterns. Melatonin supplements are highly effective and typically work very quickly. This time release formula may increase effectiveness even further.

 

N.B. Beware high dosage supplements. They are generally not needed and may be harmful long term.

5-HTP's action on serotonin levels has widespread benefits. Multiple studies have demonstrated its success in treating depression and anxiety. The results show that this supplement is as effective as conventional anti-depressant drugs. 5-HTP also helps with sleep whether depression and/or anxiety are also present or not. Our own experience and that of others has also shown that serotonin increasing measures, including 5-HTP supplements, can significantly reduce the severity of reactions to chemicals in those with MCS.

Source Naturals Coral Calcium with Magnesium -- 90 Tabs

Source Naturals Coral Calcium/Magnesium -- 90 Tabs

 

Manufacturer:
Source Naturals Coral Calcium/ Magnesium contains a higher level of magnesium than the original Coral Calcium to provide the important alkaline minerals, calcium and magnesium, in a 2:1 ratio, as well as other trace minerals. An initial study on an alkaline mineral blend demonstrated an increase in blood alkalinity (pH) and buffering capacity. Proper alkalinity (pH) of the blood is critical for the overall health of the body. Source Naturals Coral calcium/ Magnesium is eco-friendly: it is harvested in Okinawa, Japan from fossilized (dead) coral and is not harmful to living coral.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
Calcium has a sedative effect on the body. A calcium deficiency in the body causes restlessness and wakefulness. Magnesium, in doses of approximately 250-500 milligrams, can help induce sleep. Magnesium deficiency is responsible for nervousness that prevents sleep. Many nutritionists recommended calcium and magnesium supplements in a ratio of 2:1 to help induce restful sleep. The minerals in this formula are in a highly absorbable form and a dosage of 2 tablets before bedtime could help you get off to sleep and maintain healthy sleep during the night.
