As you are probably well aware chronic illness will remain as long as cells remain in the cell danger response. As you may also be aware, cells can only move through the cell danger response at the rate they have the necessary resources.
This can make things tricky!
If you get stuck with chronic illness (or stuck in the cell danger response) you’re at risk of depleting your necessary nutrients. Worse still, many who get stuck in cell danger response end up with food intolerances and cannot consume the nutrient-rich diet necessary for healing.
In this case, you may have to consider plan B.
While supplements will never provide nutrients in the best forms, varieties, and perfect packaging that nature does – it is the next best option for those who cannot consume the amounts needed in diet alone.
So let’s break down the supplements and/or nutrients that help in each stage of the cell danger response.
Supplements For Cell Danger Response 1
In a perfect world, our cells wouldn’t enter the cell danger response at all! And an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure when it comes to the cell danger response. The good news is there are a variety of nutrients that can protect cells from getting triggered and entering the cell danger response. Better still, the nutrients that help protect the cell are also the nutrients that help the innate immune system to move cells through the first stage of cell danger (inflammation) onto the second stage (proliferation).
Here’s the list of lipids, fat-soluble antioxidants, and critical nutrients for glutathione synthesis:
- Delta Tocotrienol
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin C
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
Supplements For Cell Danger Response 2
In the first stage of cell danger response, you want nutrients that protect cells by building strong cell membranes and provide antioxidant properties and building blocks. In the second stage of cell danger, the cell needs the nutrients necessary for cell proliferation and growth.
Nutrients that support growth, methylation, and recruitment of stem cells:
- General Amino Acids
- Alpha Ketoglutarate
- Vitamin B12
Supplements For Cell Danger Response 3
In the third stage of cell danger, the body needs nutrients that support blood flow, hydration, neurotransmitter synthesis, nerve function, and detoxification.
Nutrients for CDR3:
Nutrients For Supporting ATP Synthesis
If all stages of the cell danger response are fully supported it can also be beneficial to support ATP synthesis. These nutrients may increase the rate of which the body uses other nutrients in the body so they should only be done in moderation and/or while carefully monitoring nutrient levels.
- Nicotinic Acid
- Pantothenic Acid
