      3. Antioxidants, Free Radicals, and Hepatitis C
      4. Vitamin D Boosts Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis C

      1. Zinc supplementation improves the outcome of chronic hepatitis C and liver cirrhosis.
      Study published in J Clin Biochem Nutr. 2009 Nov;45(3):292-303.
      PMID: 19902019 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/

      2. The Antifibrotic Effects Of Green Tea
      The researchers drew a conclusion that green tea may protect liver cells and reduce the deposition of collagen fibers in the liver. Green tea provides a safe and effective strategy for improving hepatic fibrosis.

      NingXia Red is the natural antioxidant choice for increased energy and liver support.

      +Offers the highest known protection against the dangerous superoxide free radical *
      +Contains powerful wolfberry polysaccharides shown to enhance normal immune health*
      +Contains wolfberry compounds that support healthy liver function

      A US study confirmed that oxidative stress (from free radical damage) occurs in patients with chronic hepatitis and that the levels of the free radicals correlated with the activity of the hepatitis. Antioxidant supplements are believed by many to protect against the free radicals generated by the hepatitis C virus.

      4. Vitamin D Boosts Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis C
      Adding a daily dose of Vitamin D to the regimen of pegylated interferon-alfa 2 and ribavirin might increase the response rates, according to an abstract which was presented at the Liver Meeting 2009, the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Association of the Study of Liver Disease.

      Wishing you health,
