Does anyone have any experience with any anti-cancer or immune system building supplements, herbs or the like? I have read anecedotal reports of MGN3 and CoQ10 being used and saw a study at M.D. Anderson that suggested that turmeric was good for this purpose. Would like to know more.

Thanks,

Diane

check out this website for research

Have you ever heard of Juice Plus??? It is the most researched neutraceutical in the world and one of the studies proves that it improves the immune system. It is the best. 17 different fruits and veggies in a capsule...

email me at libby@ourjuiceplus.com if you want additional information but this is something that you must look at..

Deleted post because I recommended products. I could get deleted for putting an "ad" on TUG. Sorry bout that. If the original poster wants to PM me I can recommend some products via private discussion.

green tea is a super powered anti-oxidant. We drink it everyday. Husband started on CoQ10 when he turned 50. We also take 2000 mg of Vita C everyday.

I obtain all our nutrients from Life Extension Foundation in Florida. It is a not-for-profit company that has been in existence for about 30 years and has tens of thousands of members world-wide.

There is a lot of free information at their web site: www.lef.org. It has well-researched recommendations for hundreds of different health problems or concerns. You could also call them and ask for a free copy of the current issue of their magazine.

I do not know about Anti-cancer supplements but I will tell you my experience with building my immune system...

Last year I had a positive blood test for mono. I am in my 50's and had been feeling fatiqued and have several incidents of "colds" and respiratory type infections for about a year. I also had several bouts of cold sores in my nose, on my face and lips over a period of a year.

I tried several immune building type herbs from my health food store. Most of them included olive leaf with other herbs. For some unknown reason the ones I took seemed to make me sick to my stomach or make me feel worse.

I found some supplements specific for fatique and building a suppressed immune systen which were a Multi B vitamin pill and a additional supplement powder you mix with water that contained several other vitamins and herbs. I also took Acidophilus perals which is also recommended to support the immune system.

I have been well using these supplements since last Sept. No colds, resp. infections or cold sores all winter. I do not know if the supplements got me well or I would have gotten better anyway but I will keep taking these supplements. I have tried many other supplements and these seem to work the best for me.
