The formulation for cancer prevention & therapy


Our natural product research over nine years has been to discover effective over-the-counter-supplements, designed to facilitate classical treatments in fighting disease, specifically cancer. These supplements are important in antiangiogenic, immune and antioxidant defense systems. The components include Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC), Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), Curcumin with Piperine, Genistein, Lentinan, N-Acetylcysteine (NAC), Resveratrol, selenium, Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and zinc. These supplement components are supported for human cancer by over 15,000 references in the scientific literature withover of these being published clinical trials, not including zinc and the vitamins. These chemical defined components from natural origins have demonstrated, either individually or collectively, to have antioxidant, anti-angiogenesis, and immune stimulation properties. Furthermore, the direct cancer cell cytotoxicity for Curcumin, Genistein and NAC have been shown. Some of the antiangiogenesis components that affect the majority if not all pathways of angiogenesis, such as Curcumin, Genistein and NAC, actually stimulate the in vivo production of natural antiangiogenic compounds that include Angiostatin, Endostatin and Thrombospotin 1. All of the components play a role in serving as either water or lipid soluble (able to cross the blood-brain barrier) antioxidants. Curcumin, Genistein, Resveratrol, Lentinan, NAC, zinc, selenium and vitamins B and C all stimulate the immune system. Except for ALC and CoQ10, the other components show anti-inflammatory activity. ALC, Resveratrol along with the B and C vitamins are helpful in treating fatigue. The components that help protect the brain and promote nerve regeneration include ALA, CoQ10, Resveratrol, NAC, selenium, zinc and the B and C vitamins. In conclusion, effective prevention and treatment for diseases such as cancer, heart disease and immune deficiency will require multiple compounds.
