Liposomal Delivery System
Liposomal delivery significantly enhances absorption. A liposomal liquid delivery system allows for flexible, convenient dosing of Melatonin in order to address individual requirements. Liposomal technology helps to maintain the health benefits of Melatonin by protecting it from the degradative environment of the stomach. This is especially beneficial for patients who have had gastric bypass or general gastro-intestinal dysfunction.* Liposomal encapsulation of ingredients represents a new delivery system that appears to offer important advantages over existing methods of delivery.*
A dietary supplement that promotes resilient homeostasis, deep restful sleep, provides pivotal support for core immune functions and balance, stimulates vital internal cell production of glutathione, and provides for enhanced repair after assorted types of radiation exposure.*
The level of melatonin produced by the body is heavily influenced by sunlight, sleep and artificial light. At night, the secretion of melatonin is much higher than during the day. When this process is interrupted, certain symptoms can occur such as: (a) disruptions in the sleep/wake cycle, (b) headaches, (c) mental and physical fatigue and (d) irritability.*
Melatonin levels decline as we age by as much as 90% by age 45.*
What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is the principle hormone produced and secreted by the brain’s pineal gland. As a hormone, melatonin's wide-spread effects are comprehensive, and perhaps most intriguingly include (1) regulation over genetic regenerative repair. Two other most important upstream functions are (2) melatonin's command and control over the body's biological clock, known as the circadian rhythm. More on this below. The third most important upstream function is that melatonin serves as (3) the chief determinant over the production of vital intracellular production of glutathione. Intracellular levels of glutathione control the balance and proper regulation of TH-1 verses TH-2 immune cells, which play central roles in many autoimmune diseases.*
Very important downstream functions that are heavily influenced and regulated by the above, are melatonin's ceaseless regulation of the (4) endocrine system and (5) many metabolic pathways, plus its ability to (6) chelate and excrete deeply ingrained body stores of heavy metals such as mercury. For this reason, Melatonin is often given with NanoZeolite MD.*
Why else is it important to supplement with Melatonin?
Melatonin serves an unsurpassed role to check, balance and repair insults from radiation exposure, both ionizing as well as non-ionizing.*
Sleep Quality and Circadian Rhythm
It turns out that all body functions and homeostasis is under the powerful influence of an internal clock referred to as our circadian rhythm. More specifically, the circadian rhythm refers to time-sensitive and seasonal-sensitive variations to cell physiology. Darkness stimulates the release of melatonin and light suppresses its activity. Normal melatonin cycles and circadian rhythm are disrupted when we are exposed to excessive light in the evening or too little natural light during the daytime.*
The master pacemaker of the circadian rhythm is the suprachiasmatic nucleus that receives the information from environmental cues and communicates the timing information to the peripheral clocks in every cell, every tissue and every organ through the endocrine and autonomic nervous system. Desynchronization of these rhythms and disease is now pervasive in our society, given exposure to light at night and disruptive sleep schedules.*
In a very real sense, melatonin "synchronizes" sleep/wake cycles, food intake habits, and hormone cycles to the 24 hour daily period.*
For example, decades of research shows that sleeping 8 solid hours without waking is critical to human health. As our body sustains trillions of molecular injuries and mutations daily, continuous 8 hours of sleep is essential for complete repair.
During continuous sleep, the body also recovers and recharges organ systems including the immune system, adrenals, and cellular metabolism.*
Losing weight, defending ourselves from microorganism and managing rogue cell cycles are severely compromised when sleep is disturbed.*
Melatonin plays an important role to both induce good restful sleep as well as to awaken us in a timely manner in good spirits.*
Melatonin supports sleep onset and quality of sleep and increased Rapid Eye Movement time, deep sleep and dreaming.* These changes demonstrate better quality sleep, which produces greater mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation.*
Melatonin can decrease the amount of time required to fall asleep, increase the number of sleeping hours and support daytime alertness.*
Jet Lag and Rotating Shift Work
Jet lag and rotating shift work can interfere with the body’s natural circadian rhythm. Melatonin supports quality sleep and balanced circadian rhythms in people with disrupted circadian rhythms (such as those suffering from jet lag or poor vision or those who work the night shift) and those with low melatonin levels (such as some elderly). Taking just 3mg of Melatonin at bedtime may reduce the stress and help re-establish the natural circadian rhythms when confronting these conditions.*
Melatonin is also one of the hormones that controls the timing and release of female reproductive hormones. It helps determine when menstruation begins, the frequency and duration of menstrual cycles, and when menopause begins. It’s a powerful regulator of sex hormone production and can effect mood, immunity, reproduction and bone health. Supplementing just 3mg of Melatonin at bedtime may benefit menopausal women by supporting and sustaining sleep and by supporting osteoblasts that support bone health.*
Immune and Antioxidant Support
Melatonin has strong antioxidant properties and helps support immune system strength.* As an antioxidant it is 6 to 10 times more potent than vitamin E and is one of the few antioxidants that can enter the mitochondria to protect it from free radical damage.* Taking from 3mg to as much as 100mg daily has been used clinically to augment superior immune surveillance and functionality of nearly all bodily antioxidant systems.*
Some people experience a depressed mood when the low sunlight levels (winter) are not sufficient for their pineal glands to decrease melatonin production to its normal low daytime level. Supplementing with just 3mg of Melatonin can support mood balance seasonally or in times of low mood.*
Protection from Chronic Low-level Radiation
Studies demonstrate that exogenous melatonin reduces oxidative stress and inflammation in all investigated animal tissues. Furthermore, in this study melatonin increases 30-day survival and protected against radiation enteritis. Melatonin protected healthy tissues from ionizing radiation. These protective effects were only documented when melatonin was administered prior to exposure to ionizing radiation.*
In human studies, oral melatonin uniformly protected cellular DNA from ionizing radiation from Cs137 or x-rays. This is thought to be related to a direct free radical scavenging effects. Melatonin is thought to have major potential to protect against increased long-term cancer risk in radiological imaging procedures, and to protect from radiation due to nuclear incidents.*
The best way to regenerate the body and stay healthy is to:
When the above behavior modifications are compromised, one should use Blue-Light protective glasses and melatonin.*

Pregnenolone is often referred to as the “mother hormone” since it is the first hormone at the top of the cascade that makes progesterone, cortisol, DHEA, testosterone and all estrogens. It’s role in the adrenal-cortisol pathway includes supporting a wide range of anti-inflammatory functions including memory, cognition, immune function, joints and energy.*
Pregnenolone belongs to a group of neurosteroids (like DHEA, DHEA-S, and progesterone) that are in high concentrations in certain areas of the brain. These protect the nerve cells and enhance myelination. Pregnenolone is lipophilic and crosses the blood-brain barrier to support memory and cognition.*
In clinical practice, when serum pregnenolone levels are in the lowest quartile before 8 AM, consideration should be given to full adrenal support which includes:
I have found pregnenolone to be a life-saver for patients who have low serum levels and adrenal dysfunction. Once the adrenal function is recovered, patients can reduce and discontinue supplementation.*
This is a fully vegan formula.*
Standard Dosage is 50 mg in AM and/or PM depending on individual effects and as directed by your healthcare provider.

MD Prescriptives’™ NanoZeolite MD™ is made from a water suspension of natural food-grade zeolite which is sourced from uncontaminated clinoptilolite clay. More specifically, the primary bioactive ingredient found in NanoZeolite MD™ is composed of a silicate mineral complex featuring particle sizes with superior absorption high-surface energy over common food-grade zeolite products. The particle size range spans the upper nanometer to lower micrometer size ranges, which 'defines' the absorption powers (sorption capacity or biosorption performance) of the “micronized” zeolite particles as 'highly bioactive'.1,2 These highly bioactive micronized zeolite particles efficiently promote removal of noxious body loads containing harmful chemicals (i.e., xenobiotic elimination), heavy metals (i.e., chelation), radionuclides (i.e., decorporation), offensive microbial secretions (i.e., exoprotein elimination), and even undesirable microbes (i.e., microbiota purification).3,4 *
Safety and Efficacy
Zeolite is listed under the FDA’s G.R.A.S. list.5 Zeolite possesses powerful cation-exchange physics, making it ideal to grab onto (i.e., chelate) noxious cations.6 It has long been safely used as a feed additive for livestock to boost their health when confronting select health challenges.7 It is important that the clinoptilolite raw source material is tested for heavy metal contaminants prior to being manufactured into a nutraceutical product intended to induce chelation and decorporation in your patients.8*
At the end of this discussion, we present two compelling unpublished clinical results conducted at a certified laboratory illustrating the amazing ability of the primary ingredient in NanoZeolite MD™ to induce highly cost-effective chelation and decorporation in your patients. You will see how this primary ingredient mobilizes deeply entrenched radionuclides and heavy metal stores when administered in the proper dosages.
What we do know from decades of remediation-related and livestock-related studies, is that food-grade zeolite offers great promise when used as a food supplement. Beyond 'food-grade' zeolite, highly bioactive micronized zeolite studies are just now emerging. Collectively these studies indicate that the primary ingredient in NanoZeolite MD™ may be safely used to help eliminate from your patients the following list of heavy metals:*
Supports a Healthy Microbiota
A large body of peer-reviewed evidence indicates the primary ingredient in NanoZeolite MD™ beneficially modulates the intestinal microbiota in at least three key ways.33,34 First, the primary ingredient in NanoZeolite MD™ is known to promote the clearance of undesirable bacteria and viruses, plus effectively suppress proliferation of non-beneficial microbes such as Clostridia, E. coli, Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Salmonella and Proteobacteria. Secondly, the primary ingredient in NanoZeolite MD™ has been shown to promote the health imbuing rapid growth of two key beneficial probiotic genus, both Lactobacillus spp., as well as Bifidobacterium spp.35,36,37,38,39,40 And thirdly, the primary ingredient in NanoZeolite MD™ promotes pancreatic enzyme activity, while helping to eliminate intestinal toxemia, thereby favorably modulating the entire intestinal milieu.41,42*
Supports Normal Cellular Growth
Natural food-grade zeolite is known to promote healthy modulation of receptor sites and genes associated with unhealthy cell growth. Natural food-grade zeolite accomplishes this while simultaneously reducing lipid peroxidation. The significance of this combined feat is that it promotes overall improvement in the health status and longevity in murines suffering from unhealthy cell growth.43,44,45,46*
With the emergence of highly bioactive micronized zeolite, NanoZeolite MD™ may now become one of the most promising healthy cell growth modulators available to the clinical practice.*
Supports Healthy Immune System Functions
Many immune disorders center around excessive inflammation processes. As revealed in avian studies, one highly useful use of natural food-grade zeolite supplementation is its ability to help neutralize undesirable pro-inflammatory radicals and noxious microbe secretions such as mycotoxins, LPS and aflatoxin.47,48,49,50 Interestingly, natural food-grade zeolite is an excellent chelator and eliminator of pro-inflammatory histamine.51 But beyond these lesser potent food-grade zeolite products, dietary supplementation with highly bioactive micronized zeolite offers the promise of an unexcelled means to: (A) improve and enhance several key immune functions, while (B) beneficially modulating inflammatory pathways.52 Specifically, the primary ingredient in NanoZeolite MD™ is known to: (1) increase the numbers of foci-regional macrophages and (2) promote their defensive respiratory burst capability in murines.53,54*
Promotes Antioxidant Functions
Zeolite's superior antioxidant properties and beneficial influence on RedOx homeostasis are well-known. For example, zeolite significantly decreases ROS production and suppresses Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS) while significantly increasing the bioactivity of glutathione peroxidase, catalase, S.O.D. and total antioxidant capacity.55,56* Interestingly, one study suggests that to obtain best results, it may be wise to only administer highly bioactive micronized zeolite by itself, that is, not in direct combination with other anti-oxidants.57
Zeolite Challenge Test (To Provoke Decorporation as well as Deep Tissue Chelation) - Two Case Outcomes*
A 37-year old male submitted a baseline urine specimen on June 09th, 2016 to screen for heavy metals. Testing for a complete spectrum of heavy metals was undertaken by Access Medical Labs in Jupiter, FL. The lab determined there were only two heavy metals that were elevated out of twenty-one heavy metals tested. The results were as follows:
Post-Testing - On June 13th, 2016, after taking the primary ingredient of NanoZeolite MD™ at ten drops twice daily sublingual for 5 days, he again provided a urine sample for analysis to Access Medical Labs. Surprisingly, his heavy metal urine load (both in quantity as well as in spectrum of heavy metals detected) jumped significantly as excretion ensued (illustrating efficacious Mercury chelation as well as decorporation of Thorium) to the following values:
A 57-year old male provided a urine sample on December 27, 2016 to Access Medical Labs. Out of Twenty-one heavy metals tested, none were shown to be above normal range. For example, at that time Mercury tested in the normal range at 3.02ug/g. After seven days of consuming the primary ingredient found in NanoZeolite MD™ at 10 drops twice daily, the following heavy metal was detected out of twenty-one tested:
In conclusion, the primary ingredient in NanoZeolite MD™ has been shown to promote heavy metal decorporation even when baseline urine samples detect no heavy metals present. At 10 drops taken sublingually twice daily for 5 to 7 days, the zeolite challenge test may unlock stores of heavy metals from their deep tissue resting places for urinary excretion.*
It may take up to 30 to 60 days at the dose of 10 drops twice daily to complete the decorporation process, depending upon the deep tissue saturation loads. However, prolonged supplementation with micronized zeolite is to be discouraged due to its eventual tendency to remove desirable macrominerals from the body.58,59*
Daily dosages may be adjusted up or down to adjust to tolerance and vary the speed of elimination.*
Generally, 30 consecutive days of taking NanoZeolite MD™ sublingually is sufficient to maximize its healthful benefits. But repeated urinary screenings for heavy metals will typically confirm length of treatment required.*
Micronized Dehydroepiandrosterone, better known as simply DHEA‚ should be understood as being the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. Our DHEA is made from natural wild yams. DHEA is the key basic material utilized by the adrenal glands for conversion into the all-important steroids: cortisol, testosterone, estrogens, and others. Just as importantly, the adrenals also secret DHEA directly into the blood stream, where similarly distal target cells throughout the body convert it into testosterone, estrogens and other hormones. The amount of each hormone that DHEA creates during the conversion process depends on an individual’s nutrient status‚ stress, age‚ and sex. Normally DHEA levels peak at around age 25‚ and then decline steadily to approximately 20% of normal levels by the Age of 70 (6). For those with additional stress, DHEA will decline more rapidly.*
Therefore, because DHEA serves as a substrate to so many vital steroids essential to adapting to stress, approximately 50% or more of our most stressed patients reveals labs that show DHEA deficiency and are subsequently placed unto DHEA.*
DHEA is a major adrenal hormone which supports the cortisol pathway and fundamental anti-inflammatory mechanisms in the body (12,13). Supplementing with DHEA can promote lean muscle mass, energy, stamina, sexual function, mood, immune function, circulatory health, joint health, hormone levels and more.* Studies suggest that DHEA can aid and facilitate:
DHEA: usage and safety precautions
DHEA-S blood levels should be measured and monitored to determine individual needs. The dosage increases in low adrenal states. The normal dose should be determined after discussion with your health-care provider. The average recommended dose is between 25 mg and 50 mg orally per day either divided in AM and noon or all in the AM.*
Additional support of adrenal function should include 1) optimization of all hormones including thyroid; 2) nutrient measurement and correction of deficiencies; 3) optimizing detoxification and pH; 4) balancing the mind stressors; and 5) reducing the body stressors with oxygenation.
