Why Take Additional GB-3
Recently, we have begun recommending GB-3 as the digestive aid for all slow, or fast oxidation types, unless diarrhea or colitis are present. Many considerations prompted this change:
- An Antidote for Copper Toxicity. In our experience, most slow oxidizers have excess copper in their tissues. While not always revealed on the initial test, an elevated hair calcium level, a low sodium/potassium ratio, a low potassium level, mercury toxicity or a copper level less than 1.0 mg% in a slow oxidizer are indicators of hidden copper toxicity. If an individual follows a nutritional balancing program, excess copper will eventually begin to be eliminated. Weak adrenal glandular activity is the underlying cause of the copper imbalance.
GB-3 is specifically designed to help eliminate copper. It contains Russian black radish, an excellent source of organic sulfur and an excellent copper antagonist. Ox bile, and pancreatin in the product assist liver activity to help mobilize copper from the liver.
- Liver Support. With the proliferation of toxic chemicals and toxic metals in the environment, everyone may have some degree of liver toxicity. Slow oxidizers in particular develop sluggish liver activity due to weak adrenal and thyroid glandular activity.
In the fast oxidizer, GB-3 is a liver support formula that helps the body eliminate not only copper but many other toxic metals and chemicals from the liver.
- A Superior Digestive Aid. GB-3 is a superior digestive aid compared to HCL-pepsin or vegetable enzymes. Its pancreatin and ox bile are needed by many people, especially those in the exhaustion stage of stress or slow oxidation.
Most slow oxidizers have some degree of intestinal dysbiosis, including chronic candida albicans infection due to copper imbalance. Many have other parasites as well. Pancreatin and ox bile in GB-3 help get rid of these organisms. In some cases, other anti-candida products may be needed as well. However, GB-3 is an excellent beginning to correct the intestinal flora and improve overall digestion. Those who experience discomfort from GB-3 are usually those with intestinal dysbiosis. They need to begin with a smaller dosage.
- A Sympathetic Inhibitor. An important part of nutritional balancing programs is to correct the balance of the autonomic nervous system. Most people have exhausted their sympathetic or fight-or-flight nervous system. Most are in a parasympathetic state of slow oxidation. However, many are yet what we call sympathetic dominant. That means they retain the mental patterns such as fear and worry that pushed them into an exhaustion state. Pancreatin, ox bile and Russian black radish all inhibit the sympathetic nervous system, helping it rest and rebuild. Other parasympathetic products include Paramin, zinc, Endo-Pan and L-taurine.
Reactions And Cautions With GB-3
Upon starting GB-3, some people report diarrhea or stomach upset. This occurs because pancreatin and ox bile digest candida organisms, parasites, bacteria and debris in the intestines. The solution is to reduce the dosage at first, as low as ½ tablet per day, and then slowly increase the dosage. Also, if one has diarrhea from any cause, they may prefer Enzaid over GB-3.
