Dioscovite (sickle cell drops)
DIOSCOVITE NAFDAC NO: A7 – 1069L
SICKLE CELL REMEDY.
As a nutritional supplement, dioscovite supplies thiocyanate ,the active ingredient is an anit-sickling vitamin naturally occurring in the human blood at low levels, iodine is needed for proper functioning of the thyroid gland in the body.Dioscovite provides adequate iodine for optimal metabolic homeostasis of the thyroid gland. Thiocyanate sometimes called sulfocyanate or simply “Yam vitamin” is a natural substance found in certain plants called nitrilosides among which are the foods like African yam and cassava.
ANTI-SICKLING OF THIOCYANATE
By means of electron microscope, scientists of international health product corporation have demonstrated that thiocyanate exert 100% inhibition of sickling of sickle cell. At the molecular level, thiocyanate scientifically increases the solubility of homozygous sickle cell hemoglobin (HbSS).Thiocyanate stops sickling of red blood cells by making deoxygenated sickle cell hemoglobin nearly as soluble as normal heamoglobin. This thiocyanate binds to the hemoglobin molecule and corrects the abnormal biochemistry of insolubility of deoxygenated sickle cell haemoglobin that leads to the sickling process. Clinically, thiocyanate as food supplement corrects the anemia by making the red blood cells have normal shapes as a result of enhancing the solubility of sickle cell heamoglobin. This phenomenon prevents the formation of nematic tactoids,the liquid crystals of hemoglobin which induce sickling of erythrocytes.
DIOSCOVITE AN EFFECTIVE THERAPY
Therapeutic level of dioscovite is effective in relieving sickle cell anemia by increasing the blood count(Hemoglobin and Hematocrit).In our clinical trials,Dioscovite increases the haemoglobin of a patient from 6.3G to 10.8G in 7days.In another case study, the haemoglobin rose from 3.0G to 6.8G in 5 days .Many other traumatic result exist. The blood count increases as more and more Hbss cells survived premature hemolysis. Hence, patient using dioscovite are liberated from chronic aneamia, sickle cell crisis, chronic blood transfusion, strokes, leg ulcers, chronic infection and premature deaths.
DIOSCOVITE A SAFE REMEDY
Therapeutic level of thiocyanate is safe and non toxic. Thiocyanate is a normal metabolite in the human body. By raising thiocyanate level, an anti-sickling effect is accomplished and this is safe and effective. A potent anti-sickling factor, thiocyanate has a wide therapeutic index. This is evident from the fact that thiocyanate is still safe even when the therapeutic dose is doubled. Thiocyanate and its precursor’s beta-cyanogenetic glucosides termed nitrilosides or (vit B.17) by krebs1970 are non toxic and physiologically and biochemically beneficial to man.
In the presence of sulfur containing amino-acids cysteine or methionine, rhodanese converts hydrocyanic acid liberated from nitriloside by metabolism by glycosides to non toxic thiocyanate.
