Questions About Paw Paw Cell-Reg®?

Q: Why should I avoid supplementing with Co-Q10, 7 - Keto or products that support the thyroid while taking Paw Paw Cell-Reg?

A: Taking Co-Q10, 7 Keto or thyroid products may decrease the effectiveness of Paw Paw Cell-Reg. Co-Q10, 7 Keto and thyroid stimulating-products increase the mitochondrial ATP energy production. Compounds called acetogenins, found in the Paw Paw Cell-Reg, act by decreasing this energy production. Taking both products would have a counteractive effect. It is not dangerous to take the products together, but they are both less effective.

Q: Could I separate the time between the time I take Co-Q10, 7 Keto (or thyroid support products) and Paw Paw Cell-Reg? For example, could I take Co-Q10 in the morning and Paw Paw at night?

A: Nature's Sunshine suggests avoiding these products altogether while taking Paw Paw Cell-Reg.

Q: What about antioxidants? Should I avoid those as well?

A: There is no indication antioxidants will reduce the effectiveness of Paw Paw Cell Reg. Generally, antioxidants (in small amounts) are beneficial because they quench free radicals and damaging oxygen species in our cells. With a buildup of free radicals and reactive oxygen species, the cell will undergo a process of programmed cell death. It may be beneficial for this to occur in certain individuals. Multi-vitamin with minerals is certainly helpful. Thai-Go is okay to take in the recommended dosage as per the label.

Q: Which products complement Paw Paw Cell-Reg?

A: Nature’s Noni (Juice or capsules), Immune Stimulator and Protease Plus complement Paw Paw Cell-Reg.

Q: Can I continue to take products like E-Tea® and Pau D’Arco?

A: Yes.

Q: Can I take Paw Paw Cell-Reg with medications?

A: There are no known interactions between Paw Paw and prescription drugs. As mentioned above, thyroid supporting herbs or drugs (i.e. Synthroid) may have a counterproductive effect. However, Nature's Sunshine does not recommend that you stop taking any thyroid drugs, unless you are under a physician’s supervision.

Q: Can I take more Paw Paw Cell-Reg than the label recommendations (one capsule with food four times daily)?

A: No, Nature's Sunshine does not recommend exceeding label recommendations. Paw Paw is known to cause nausea and vomiting when taken in higher doses. It will not work better in higher amounts.

Q: Should I take Paw Paw Cell-Reg as a preventative?

A: Only if you presently have or had in the past cellular abnormalities. If you have no evidence in cellular abnormalities then don't take Paw Paw Cell-Reg.

Q: I occasionally feel some minor stomach upset after taking the Paw Paw Cell-Reg. Can I do anything to help reduce this?

A: Although some people tend to be more sensitive to the product than others, Nature's Sunshine recommends taking the Paw Paw with some food, to decrease the incidence of stomach upset. Ginger can also be used with Paw Paw Cell-Reg. Ginger has been used for more than 2,000 years and it has a history of use in reducing occasional stomach upset. 

Q: What is the shelf life of Paw Paw Cell-Reg?

A: Because it is in a concentrated form 2-3 years is the shelf life.

Q: Is the Paw Paw Cell-Reg raw or cooked?

A: The Paw Paw Cell-Reg is extracted with alcohol, so this keeps the Paw Paw Cell-Reg in a raw state.
