For the last few years, many people have come to me asking about the efficacy of Dioscovite. I have never taken it, but I know many sickle cell warriors have with varied results. Some have said that it takes away daily pain completely, while others said that it eliminates their crises. On the other hand, my cousins used it and it didn’t help them at all. T.J. Brown, of SC Natural Wellness Group has shared with us the following pertinent points on Dioscovite, just to help those who might be considering it with some concrete information.
Dioscovite was discovered by means of electron microscopy, in vitro (test tube) studies, which show that adequate anti sickling nutrition stops the sickling of SS, sickle cells. Such sickle, SS, cells with normal, spherical shapes stay a long time in the body and improve the blood count and energy levels. They circulate freely like normal cells, without clogging peripheral blood vessels (vaso-occlusion) that cause vaso-occlusive pain crisis.
This phenomenon reduces the number of sickle cells in the body, thereby promoting health. Inadequate anti-sickling nutrient supply does not stop sickling. Those sickled cells cause sickle cell painful crisis and other problems. Hence, adequate Dioscovite intake is very important for good health.
Dr. Oji Agbai, N.D. PhD. discovered the effectiveness of Dioscovite against sickle cell in 1983. The active ingredient in Dioscovite is Thiocyanate, which is also known as the Yam vitamin. It is an extract from African yams. Thiocyanate stops the cells from sickling, clumping up or sticking.

Foods that are said to contain Thiocyanate include but are not limited to: yams, plantain, cherry, cassava, turnips, strawberry, flaxseed, broccoli, banana, macadamia nuts, peaches, cabbage, Brussels sprout, turnips, and chickpeas. View a complete list HERE.
Dioscovite is a natural liquid supplement that should be taken with water or juice. Dioscovite is also taken after a well-balanced protein diet. Since it is digested with water and it’s a liquid it starts to work in the body immediately, you may feel relief anywhere from 15 minutes to over the course of a day. The Dioscovite works with the body to become healthier over time so taking it daily is beneficial.

½- 3 years :05ml once daily
4-8 years: 1.0ml once daily
