When looking for supplements for cancer, start with the well-known antioxidants including Vitamins A, C & E,. They are especially valuable in fighting cancer.
Vitamin A, better taken as beta carotene protects against breast, bladder, colon & lung cancer. Take at least 10,000 IU of beta carotene daily.
Vitamin C, what I think of as the master vitamin, so no surprise that it is also an important cancer fighting vitamin. It especially protects against breast, colon & lung cancer. Take between 5,000 - 10,000 mgs in divided doses as the body excretes Vitamin C pretty quickly.
Vitamin E helps prevent stomach cancer and other gastrointestinal cancers. Take between 400 - 1,000 IU daily with meals.
Selenium, which is a heavy metal and harmful in excess amounts, is a powerful antioxidant. Selenium is thought to protect against breast, colon & lung cancer. Take 200 mcg daily.
Calcium, is also one of the better supplements for cancer prevention. A very important mineral, it prevents colon cancer & polyps which are precancerous matter. Take between 500 - 1500 mgs daily.
The amino acid, arginine, promotes release of growth hormone which, essentially is a hallmark of youth. This lowers risk of cancer formation. Makes sense since youngsters rarely develop cancer. Take as directed.
Folic acid lowers the risk of colon & breast cancer. Take 400 mcg of folic acid daily.
Finally, lycopene is a phytochemical found in colorful fruits and veggies. Lycopene is thought to lower incidence of bladder & pancreatic cancer. Take according to package directions.
