I am not well acquainted with the take of all these supplements, yours as well as Dim's seem a lot too many to me.. I must confess that all of them are good and still, I want to learn of a doctor who has interfered as well...and has given their advice.
Who says how much is necessary and safe?
"7gr High quality omega 3 from fish oil"
really??? what are the d3 and A levels in those puppies?!

DIM wrote:-Don't take any amino acid with food as food proteins reduce their absorption especially for non essential amino acids as ALCAR and NAC are!
-Take Magnesium away from Calcium, they interfere.
-Don't take EGCG or other plant antioxidants with food or minerals as they are iron chelators (and reduce other mineral absorption say calcium).
-Reduce NAC, no need for more than 1200-1500mg according to some researches and check regurarly uric acid levels, wife's increased remarkably to high normal levels with 1500mg inosine and you don't want to cause gout.
-Probably reduce vitamin A dosage (or check levels), although I started with 5000mg/day I reduce the dosage to 5000mg 4-5 times per week, vit A is quite toxic!
-Increase Zinc to 25-45mg/day and check your levels, take half vit C with lunch-half with dinner, you can't absorb more than 200-250mg each time.

I have found the only way to figure out how much vitamin d a person needs is to get your level checked every 6 months for the first couple years. Because everyone is different a 10000 IU Vitamin D3 dose a day might be fine, but that would be way too much for me. See

for the levels you should be looking for. good luck
I'd back off the EGCG for a bit, and try giving her a sea kelp iodine supplement and see if her thyroid numbers can reach normal levels again....I don't think quercetin would affect the thyroid gland. I am hypothyroid since birth of my son, and I take armour thyroid supplementation, but my hypothyroidism developed over several years. My TSH was 15 at its worst, it's normal now. The iodine in sea kelp has been helpful.
I still do not understand iron levels...afraid I'm no help, there! Jeff continues to work too much, but he's almost done with a couple of projects, and will have a break in mid-March. His left foot has a numb patch that comes and goes, but he's hanging in there. Thanks for asking, and good luck getting your wife's thyroid back to normal.
