Supplement to Counteract X-Ray Radiation Exposure

August 6, 2009 – Matthew Budoff, M.D., associate professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and director of cardiac CT at Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute in Torrance, Calif., has become the first cardiologist in California to offer patients BioShield-Radiation R1, the only patented dietary supplement designed to neutralize the damaging free radicals produced by medical X-rays.

“Everyone in the profession understands the importance of dose reduction in cardiac CT,” Dr. Budoff said. “We’re constantly searching for ways to optimize scanning protocols and tailor exposure parameters to the individual patient. I believe BioShield-Radiation is a terrific complement to these scanner-centric dose-reduction techniques.”

After a series of studies and a governmental research initiative, a team of radiation biologists and antioxidant scientists at Premier Micronutrient Corp. developed BioShield-Radiation, which is a micronutrient formulation specifically designed to address oxidative stress produced by ionizing radiation.

The company said its product can be used or patients undergoing medical or dental X-ray procedures or anyone regularly exposed to elevated levels of ionizing radiation such as healthcare, aviation, military and nuclear power plant personnel, as well as people living in high radon homes and environments.

As a dietary supplement the formulation does not require a prescription.
