Cancer, one of the most dreaded diseases, is the second leading cause of death in the United States. The standard treatment protocols of chemotherapy and radiation are toxic to normal cells and potentially enhance metastasis. In contrast, the nutrient mixture of ascorbic acid, lysine, proline and green tea extract addresses different aspects of cancer development:

  • Inhibits tumor growth/ proliferation
  • Impairs invasion
  • Inhibits metastasis
  • Inhibits angiogenesis
