March 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 106

The use of an antioxidant supplement by most breast cancer patients has proved beneficial. According to research, these natural remedies improve the body's condition. It boosts the immune response to help fight cancer during treatment.

The findings show that there is a need to investigate how an antioxidant supplement can help. Most women using it during their treatment claim that their condition has improved. So far, it has been discovered that they are rich in beta-carotene and vitamin C. These affect the outcome of breast cancer treatment, according to scientists at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health.

Therefore, it is only recommended that more research should be carried out. Studies about the influence of antioxidants on the outcome should be carried out. This will help one to understand what helps patients recover from cancer while they use antioxidants.

It seems that the composition of any antioxidant supplement comprises of essential vitamins like; vitamin E, vitamin C, beta-carotene and selenium. However, taking them in specific doses also plays an important role in treatment. This is not only applicable in cancer cases. It is also important for patients using antioxidant supplements to treat other ailments.

In the case of cancer patients, there are three classes of dosage; high, low and none. Some researchers insist that high does interfere with radiation treatment and chemotherapy. That's because the supplements may cleanup the particles (produced by the treatment) that target cancer cells.

On the other hand, some research suggest that cancer cells prosper in the presence of antioxidants. Therefore, patients using any antioxidant supplement are only making things worse. The American Cancer Society is against the use of antioxidants during cancer treatment. Despite this information, approximately 50% of the American population takes antioxidant supplements.

However, there is no evidence to support this and not much can be said for now. Additionally, some doctors and scientists suggest that antioxidant compounds do not worsen cancer. In fact, there seems to be visible evidence of improvement in most cases.

Research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center involved 32 breast cancer patients. They were treated and observed between 1999 and 2006. The patients were prescribed doses of antioxidants during the course of treatment. About 68% to 81% were reported to have survived treatment and recovered. Over the past few years, most breast cancer patients have been recommended to use antioxidants frequently. While the debate is still on and more research is underway, there seems to be more proof that using an antioxidant supplement helps fight cancer.
