Supplements for cystic fibrosis
Digestive bitters will stimulate the release of stomach acid, enzymes and bile to help with nutrient absorption. I recommend a half dropper full on the tongue before meals.

To make sure the stomach is producing sufficient stomach acid I recommend supplementing with zinc and B vitamins. Trimethylglycine (TMG) also helps as methylation is required for stomach acid formation. In fact methylation is involved in about 4,000 processes in the body, so it can provide other benefits as well.

NAC to thin the mucous. NAC also helps to prevent adhesion of the Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae bacteria.

Ophiophogon for strengthening the lungs and to thin out the mucous.

Coleus forskohlii to elevate cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate) levels and to help the chloride channels to function properly. The cAMP will dilate the bronchioles as well to help with oxygen exchange. Take it with watercress to prolong the effects by blocking the cAMP breakdown. Watercress is a cyclic adenosine monophosphate phosphodiesterase inhibitor.

Lecithin granules with meals to help with the absorption of fats and EFAs (essential fatty acids).

Flax and fish oils for the EFAs.
