Dietary supplements for cancer patients

December 30, 2021


Dietary supplements are vitamins, minerals or herbs that you can take to potentially increase the amount of a substance in your body for beneficial purposes. Examples include a multivitamin, biotin, or zinc, which can be in the form of tablet, powder, or liquid. If you’re curious about adding dietary supplements into your daily routine, I wanna make sure that you’re aware that supplements should not replace whole foods for nutrition. Research has shown that protective nutrients in food are favored compared to taking a pill. There’s a possibility that the supplement will absorb as well and can be harmful if taken at high doses. In fact, certain supplements have been shown to negatively impact chemotherapy and other necessary treatments. With this in mind, make sure to ask your doctor and healthcare team about any supplement you’re currently taking or would like to take.
