Cancer Cells and Vitamin C

Insights by: Dr. Gary Olsen DC CSCS

Conclusion: Vitamin C is used in all areas of the body. From boosting the immune system to helping with your skin, vitamin C also helps as an anti-cancer agent. This study shows its ability to prevent the creation of cancer stem cells and was 10 times more effective than the other experimental drugs in the study. The authors conclude “vitamin C is a promising agent and could function as an add-on for conventional cancer therapy”. Most people are deficient and everyone has different needs for vitamin C. The recommended daily amount varies from 1 gram to 6+ grams orally. I recommend at least 2 grams a day but some need 4-6 grams a day due to different metabolic needs and health issues. For patients with cancer the daily needs are much higher and usually it is administered intravenously. If you need help or direction for your specific needs come in and lets talk about it.
