Vitamin C : 3000 – 5000 mg (total) - depending on your size. Taking too much will cause diarrhea. When this happens, cut back 500 mg. until you reach the highest amount you can take without causing diarrhea. Take throughout the day – definitely not all at once - with food in stomach. Take 1000 mg. with minerals at night to help with mineral absorption. For people with sensitive stomachs, Calcium Ascorbate or Magnesium Ascorbate are non-acidic forms of Vitamin C and will not upset stomach.
Vitamin D : 500 – 1000 I.U. (International Units) EVEN BETTER, get at least 30 minutes of direct sunlight.
Vitamin E: 400-800 I.U. Daily
Vitamin A or Beta Carotene (as you prefer): 25,000 – 50,000 I.U.
B-50 Caps (or similar Vitamin B Complex): One Daily
Co-Enzyme Q-10: 60 mg. once a day. Twice a day for adults over 50.
If you have digestive problems take enzymes with meals such as: Bromelain, Essential Enzymes, Papaya Enzymes, and Pineapple all work. If you also have inflammation and/or plaque in your arteries then Serrapeptase is the one to take. A good enzyme for people with circulation, heart and vascular problems (including blood clots) is Nattokinase.
Taking Niacin (Vitamin B-3) daily is excellent for Circulation. Begin with 50 mg and work up to 1,000 mg. Take with meals. Should feel a comfortable flush, which lets you know it is working. Once you are up to 1,000 take for a week then stop for a few weeks and begin again with 100 mg and work way up. (Once you no longer feel the flush it is time to go to a larger dose.)
