4 Dietary Supplements That Could Help You Beat Breast Cancer

4 Dietary Supplements That Could Help You Beat Breast Cancer

When it comes to reducing your risk of breast cancer, there are many factors beyond your control. You can’t change your family history, your age, or when you started your period. But you can take steps to reduce your risk of breast cancer and dietary supplements may help.

Breastcancer.org reports that diet is thought to be partly responsible for about 30% to 40% of all cancers. If you’re struggling to get all of your necessary nutrients from food alone, you may want to consider adding certain supplements to your dietary regimen.

No supplement can replace standard cancer therapies, but some supplements may help reduce a person’s risk of developing cancer or support the body during cancer treatment.  Before taking vitamins or supplements, you should talk to your doctor as some supplements can interact with other medications or cause side effects.

Here are 4 supplements to consider for better breast health:

Green tea

Supplements containing green tea extracts may help fight against cancer. According to a study published in 2018, green tea and its main active component, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), may help prevent or delay cancer onset, cancer recurrence, and secondary growths from cancer.

Garlic

Garlic is believed to have a number of protective effects including blocking and halting the activation of cancer-causing substances and reducing the spread of cancer cells, according to Healthline.com.

Tumeric

Here’s a good reason to use the Indian spice turmeric more often: lab research shows that curcumin, which gives turmeric its bright color, could have a number of benefits including blocking cancer cells from multiplying, killing breast cancer cells, and slowing tumor growth.

Vitamin D3

According to Breastcancer.org, research suggests that women with low levels of vitamin D have a higher risk of breast cancer. Additionally, vitamin D may promote normal breast cell growth and may even be able to stop breast cancer cells from growing.

 

One of the most reliable ways to boost your vitamin D level is direct sunlight exposure. However, many people spend most of their time inside or wear sunscreen when they are in the sun. Therefore, taking a vitamin D3 supplement is highly recommended.
