Omega-3s Fatty Acids Enhance Effects of Cancer-Fighting Drug

Recommended Posts

In the Sept.issue of Life Extension magazine reads" Omega-3 Fatty Acids Show Promise in Fighting Deadly Cancers" They do this by sensitizing cancer cells to the effects of standard chemotherapy drugs. "Cancer cells with a higher concentration of DHA in their membranes were more susceptible to cell death from the chemo drug doxorubicin. Similar results were found when DHA was added to the taxane family such as Taxol and Taxotere. More dramatic cell deaths occurred if DHA was given before the chemo treatment."

Lisa takes 1 soft gell with each meal with 600mg DHA and 900mg EPA and fish body oils of 3000mg. The source needs to be from young salmon not farm grown to get the maximum, purity and minimum mercury. I also liked this supplement because the research says that Omega-3 keeps the cancer cells from sticking together.

Any way it's a piece of the puzzle.

Take care of yourselves - peacefully - Chuck
