Potential clinical applications for high-dose nutritional antioxidants

Medical Hypotheses
E J Crary, Mark F McCarty


High but well-tolerated doses of the nutritional antioxidants selenium and vitamins E and C have significant immunostimulant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic effects which are well documented in the existing biomedical literature. In addition, these antioxidants help to protect the structural integrity of ischemic or hypoxic tissues, and may have useful anti-thrombotic actions as well. Supplementation with high-dose nutritional antioxidants may eventually gain a broad role in the prevention, treatment, or palliation of cancer, cardiovascular disease, infection, inflammatory disorders, and certain diabetic complications.

Cardiovascular Disease Pathophysiology

Cardiovascular disease involves several different processes that contribute to the pathological mechanism, including hyperglycemia, inflammation, atherosclerosis, hypertension and more. Vasculature stability plays a critical role in the development of the disease. Discover the latest research on cardiovascular disease pathophysiology here.

Brain Ischemia

Brain ischemia is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. Discover the latest research on brain ischemia here.
