I don't like the form of vitamin C
vitamin B2 is used to turn the drink color orange
remedy for CHF in Europe is CoQ10 (ubiquinol) ... 600 mg daily in the beginning
supplements do not include Pauling's basic regimen
plus a multi vitamin/mineral tablet
Father bruises so easily and bleeds like crazy from minor cuts/scrapes that I really wonder. So will hold off on things like Vit E or Omega-3 until someone can clear this issue up for us.

I'm puzzled by claims that only Hydrogen Ascorbate works. Where's the science to back up that claim? Stuff I've read said the common ascorbate forms disassociate well in intestine and individual components then absorbed. So how could there be a difference? As a layperson, I don't get it.
I also notice Cardio-C has Vitamin B2 in it. How does that factor into PT?
Carvedilol - 3.125 mg twice a day (was 6.25 mg but cardiologist reduced few days ago due to slow pulse)
Sertraline - 25 mg once a day
My father's health worsened significantly and I insisted we go to ER. Admitted immediately. Hemoglobin only 6.3. They attributed to bleeding somewhere in GI tract. Got 3 units. So glad we went when we did. Things were getting really bad.
Xarelto - 15 mg once a day
(His physicians have changed plans and now they want to install pacemaker before doing any more testing!!)
Also, they seem to only be concerned with serum levels and they say those numbers are OK, Except LOW Potassium which they are supplementing orally. They will not give him supplemental Magnesium or Ubiquinol.

Sorry for bumping an old thread but that really caught my interest, is that compund the same available through the Soy Lecithin? Do you have any reference for this/what is the mechanism behind or is just a personal experience? Last question, is this related to the chemistry of aspirin or works for everything?
I'm used to take a mix of herbs and I'm always worried about dosage to avoid the additive/excessive blood thinning effect.

Is lecithin a substitute?
