SANTA ROSA, Calif., Oct. 23, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- If you have a family history of breast cancer, or are actively undergoing treatment in the wake of a recent diagnosis, there are a variety of natural botanicals, vitamins, and minerals that can have a strong positive impact when it comes to both prevention and recovery.

Based on the latest scientific research, many different nutrients show promise in this area of breast cancer prevention and recovery. Combining these nutrients in the proper amounts allows the cancer to be attacked from all sides, therefore inhibiting the cancer growth while simultaneously promoting overall health. There are quite a few supplements used for this purpose in many clinics - most notably modified citrus pectin, which is a scientifically proven natural combination therapy for a wide variety of cancers. For daily support, a natural breast health formula is recommended, which provides targeted nutritional support for women struggling with breast health concerns and breast cancer.

Other supplements include medicinal mushrooms, specific vitamins and antioxidants, and nutrients that act as hormone modulators, anti-inflammatory agents, and immune enhancers.

Modified Citrus Pectin

Top among cancer fighting supplements is modified citrus pectin (MCP), which is absolutely essential in the treatment of breast cancer. MCP directly attacks cancer by binding to galectin molecules ("sticky" surface molecules that promote angiogenesis and metastasis) and blocking them - which means that cancer cells can't spread and grow. At the same time MCP contains properties that enhance the overall health of the individual by gently removing heavy metals and environmental toxins from the body.

Breast Formula

The natural botanical formula recently researched at Indiana University is suitable for daily maintenance at lower dosages, but powerful enough to be part of an active breast cancer protocol at higher doses.

This formula includes several powerful ingredients that are effective against breast cancer alone, but together work synergistically to support overall breast health. This unique formula combines a blend of anti-cancer herbs, mushrooms, and nutrients for hormonal modulation and the promotion of healthy cell replication.

Medicinal Mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms have been extensively researched for their anti-tumor and immune-modulating effects, and are absolutely essential for the maintenance of overall vitality and cellular health. If you have breast cancer, three of the most beneficial mushrooms include the Coriolus, Reishi, and Phellinus varieties. In addition, mushroom formulas that combine a full spectrum of immune enhancing varieties can be of great benefit to anyone fighting cancer.

Supplement Doses and Action Properties

Vitamins and minerals are among the best choices for fighting breast cancer, in particular the powerful antioxidants A and C. Research shows the synergistic effects of these two nutrients in fighting breast cancer, and similar results have been shown with vitamin E and D3. Click here for a list that covers some – but not all -- of the key nutrients that have been shown to be effective against breast cancer, alone and for more powerful effect, synergistically. In addition, many of these nutrients are beneficial for supporting overall health and vitality.
