Ten of The Best Supplements We Believe Can Help You Beat Cancer
All have been detailed in icon in past and can be found on the left of this article in blue.
Multivitamin and Mineral
Although most usually largely a synthetic compound, we cannot deny the research - everybody should consider taking a multivitamin and mineral supplement every day of their lives. Ideally this should be in a liquid, suspended form rather like the tonics your doctor used to recommend when you were a child. 2012 European research on anti-oxidants, and 2012 American research on a multivitamin and mineral supplement showed ´small but significant´ reductions in disease risk (Cancer Watch, 2012). Here we offer the ten supplements we would add to our daily diet on top of this.
1: FISH OILS
Long chain omega 3 is essential for cellular health, control of local inflammation, longevity and much, much more. Research shows supplementation, because it is daily and dose-controlled, actually provides more benefit than eating oily fish.
Helps displace heavy metals from the body. Anti-oxidant mineral recognised more and more as essential in the fight against cancer; German research shows it lowers prostate cancer risk.
3: VITAMIN E
Powerful immune system booster. But take a natural form that ideally combines all 4 tocopherols and all 4 tocotrienols. You simply cannot eat the daily quantities shown to be effective in scientific studies.
People simply do not eat enough ´greens´, and chlorella is a ´super-green´. Wonderful source of beta-carotene, minerals and vitamin B-12, especially important if you employ a meat-free diet.
5: VITAMIN D
If you cannot get 40 minutes in the sunshine every day, you should consider supplementation. This vitamin can act like a hormone and has been shown time and time again to reduce the risk of cancer in research studies.
6: COENZYME Q10
Research shows antioxidant, anti-ageing, anti-cancer benefits levels in tissues decline as you age. But US research clearly shows you can recapture the levels of your youth by supplementation.
7: GRAPE SEED EXTRACT
Shown in the American VITAL study to be the top anti-oxidant commonly available. It is an OPC, and Pine Bark Extract (another OPC but not in the research study) may be even better.
Research ws a variety of health benefits; an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, this spice (Turmeric) seems to play a strong role in a number of anti-cancer pathways, and in other illnesses too.
9: B COMPLEX
B Vitamins are essential for correct cellular division and replication apart from playing a role in the nervous system and many of the senses. A pre-cursor to diseases like Alzheimer´s and cancer has been shown to be the build up of Homocystein levels in the body. B Vitamins can keep this under control.
Seems to play a prevention role in everything from dementia to strokes to cancer. Research is coming thick and fast on this natural compound found in organic red grape skins.
It is important that you look for a source of naturally-sourced supplements. Many cheaper products are synthetic and limited in their content. Some research has indicated such synthetic products have dubious abilities. Suppliers of naturally-sourced supplements include - www.mercola.com, www.naturalnews.com
(in America) or www.ournaturalselection.com
(in the UK).
