Current Research Studies that further support how biochemical nutrient therapy can treat common health concerns

600 mg N-Acetyl cysteine boosts the chances of pregnancy continuing past 20 weeks by 190%

Pregnancy could be associated with a state of oxidative stress that could initiate and propagate a cascade of changes that may lead to miscarriage. This process of oxidative stress may be suppressed by the antioxidant effect of N-acetyl cysteine. The current study aimed to evaluate the effect of N-acetyl cysteine therapy in patients diagnosed with unexplained recurrent miscarriage. A group of patients with history of recurrent unexplained miscarriage were treated with N-acetyl cysteine 0.6 g + folic acid 500 microg/day and compared with an aged-matched group of patients treated with folic acid 500 microg/day alone. N-acetyl cysteine + folic acid compared with folic acid alone caused a significantly increased rate of continuation of a living pregnancy up to and beyond 20 weeks (odds ratio = 2.9). N-acetyl cysteine + folic acid was associated with a significant increase in the take-home baby rate as compared with folic acid alone (odds ratio = 1.98). In conclusion, N-acetyl cysteine is a well-tolerated drug that could be a potentially effective treatment in patients with unexplained recurrent miscarriage.

6-8 grams/day of Vitamin C both treated and prevented pneumonia

In early literature, a Vitamin C deficiency was associated with pneumonia.  Numerous studies indicated that Vitamin C may alleviate or prevent infections caused by bacteria, protozoa or viruses.  The current study aimed to evaluate the effect of Vitamin C therapy in patients diagnosed with pneumonia. The patients treated with 6-8 grams per day of Vitamin C had beneficial results whereas 3-4 grams per day did not yield the same, proving that correct dose is instrumental to efficacy of the vitamin.  In conclusion, Vitamin C is a safe and efficacious drug that could be a potentially effective adjunctive treatment in patients of all ages with pneumonia.
