New research has found taking vitamin D supplements after a diagnosis of breast cancer is associated with a 20 percent increase in survival rate.
This study builds on previous research which has already shown that higher levels of vitamin D are associated with a lower risk of breast cancer. Ultimately, however, for the most effective prevention and control of cancer, no single nutrient alone is enough. Instead, what is needed are carefully chosen synergistic combinations of nutrients.
Research conducted by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute has proven that a specific combination of micronutrients can effectively control multiple steps in breast cancer. The combination used in this research included vitamin C, the amino acids lysine and proline, and the green tea extract epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
