The safest way to do this is through supplementation with the Omega-3 Fatty Acids, EPA and DHA. A goal of getting at least 80 mg/kg of body weight is a good start, but the key is to test. You should get your Arachadonic Acid Acid (AA) ratio to Eicosapentaenoic Acid Ratio to a level of 1.5 to 3.0 (AA/EPA) and at that level, your C Reactive Protein level (CRP) will normalize. It is important to test. The brand used in the Poseidon study is available as a liquid or capsules at zonediet.com, but there are others of good quality such as Nordic Naturals. If the capsule doesn’t break down the EPA and DHA dose per dose, it isn’t worth the $.
Many are hoping to get to a floor of at least 60. It is important to test to make sure you don’t go over 100. Most brands are easy and inexpensive. We use the generic from WalMart that has 5,000 per capsule. 90% of people diagnosed with T1d are deficient at onset
AMP Kinase is very helpful as the remaining cells try to survive. It is difficult to eat enough spinach and berries to get to the needed level. Did you know that AMP Kinase activation is how Metformin works? You can get polyphenols in many forms including:
(there is research on each that show efficacy).
