Supplementing During Cancer Treatment

21547222_lWhen we talk about supplements, we never indicate that they can treat, cure, prevent or mitigate any diseases. We don’t say: This pill right here will change your body! We say: This supplement will support your body’s normal processes.*

So what happens when those normal processes change as the result of treatments? Good news: supplements can still offer you support, no matter where your body has led you.*

When cancer treatment makes eating difficult, steals energy and zaps nerves into submission, many people turn to supplements for comprehensive support.*

Because ginger supports digestive health and offers free radical scavenging properties, it is an ideal supplement to support healthy intestinal function.* It also has been known to be soothing and calming, and is often used to make tea for nauseated patients.

Another supplement, DMG, supports normal energy levels – a very important factor in your overall health.*

Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a nutrient found in the cells of both plants and animals. The human body produces DMG in very small amounts. Supplementing the diet with higher levels of DMG greatly improves the nutritional environment of the cell.*

It’s been found effective in supporting immune system function and better utilization of oxygen at the cellular level, which can, in turn, support normal energy levels.*

Further support for those undergoing treatment can be found in supplements like L-glutamine.*

L-glutamine, like DMG is involved in many of our bodies’ metabolic processes.

Glutamine is found in large amounts in the muscles and readily crosses the blood brain barrier to be used as fuel. There is an increased demand for glutamine during stress associated with heavy exercise, illness or trauma, so it’s ideal as a supplement.*

As the most abundant amino acid in the body, it also serves as fuel for intestinal mucosal cells. Supplementing with L-Glutamine supports the maintenance of muscles, mental activity, immune response, proper mood balance, energy levels and digestive tract health.*

This support is especially valuable for supporting normal nerve and brain function.*

Always talk to your healthcare practitioner before starting any supplement regimen, especially if undergoing any form of treatment for any illness.
