Psoriasis Supplements List
Bile acids/salts – should be produced in the body normally when you heal the liver and the stomach acid production is working. If you have had your gallbladder removed you should supplement the bile acids long-term (forever).
Betaine HCL – supplemental stomach acid effects was discussed in this article.
Pancreatic Enzymes – also the pancreas should be start working as long as you correct the stomach acid production and the pancreas (if it had the problem producing the enzymes). Until that time it is very helpful to supplement with some strong pancreatin or even better with some blend of the various digestive and proteolytic enzymes.
Forskolin (Coleus Forskohlii) – up-regulates the cAMP – which is extremely important for normal bodily functions. The body usually gets deregulated by the toxicity and infections = the cGMP takes over the control. Forskolin activates the proper stomach acid production, increases the vasodilation, supports many essential processes in the cells and activates the production of the various enzymes in the body.
Lactoferrin – this multifunctional protein has about 300 times better “skills” when it comes to iron binding than transferrin which is standard iron binding protein in human body. When you eat this protein in whey protein supplement, colostrum or as a dedicated supplement in capsule, it binds the iron in your intestines and inhibits the biofilm formation. That iron is then transferred right into the body cells where it is needed.
Apple Cider Vinegar – greatly helps to dissolve the biofilm created by bacteria, helps digestion and liver.
Xylitol – this sugar inhibits the biofilm formation; it is commonly used in mouthwashes
L-Histidine – this amino acid helps the body to produce the stomach acid on its own.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) – as source of bioavailable sulfur
NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) – to support the detoxification as well as to boost the glutathione levels
Nattokinase – to dissolve the fibrin clots in the blood.
Niacin – is a great supplement mostly for general body supporting effects. It supports the stomach acid production, improves the anxiety and depression and the niacin flush is great for oxygenation of the tissues in the body.
L-Arginine – although it is a great supplement generally and for vasodilation, it is considered that it supports the mycoplasma. Anyway, I would still use it unless you feel bad when taking the L-arginine since the positive effects are more powerful than the fact that it may support the mycoplasma in growth.
L-Glutamine – greatly helps to repair the intestinal lining. 2 – 3 times a day take 3 grams as a powder or in a capsule.
Berberine – The study proved that berberine prevents the liver fibrosis through the inhibition of hepatic stellate cells proliferation.
Probiotics – Lactic acid bacteria can significantly reduce the adhesion of Staphylococcus aureus in the intestinal tract and even kill the S. aureus bacteria. However psoriatics have usually overgrown even the useful bacteria in the small intestine, so it is better to take the probiotics only if the skin is already improved.
Vitamin and mineral supplements
You should use the B12, zinc and iron(body loses them during the rapid cell proliferation), calcium and magnesium mostly because those 5 very important nutrients are really hard to absorb without the adequate amounts of stomach acid.
And as you now know many psoriatics could have low stomach acid for many years or decades.
The longer you have lived with psoriasis the more deficient you may be in those nutrients.
Don’t forget that at the time when psoriasis appeared for the first time your body was already deficient in some nutrients for a long period of time.
Body deteriorates and running out of the nutrients slowly and that’s why it seems hard to find a cure for many diseases which are just the symptoms
