teriw Posted December 2, 2006 Share Posted December 2, 2006 Hi everyone, I just took a trip to our local health food store in search of mushroom extract for the purpose of restoring white blood cell counts and boosting immunity. I talked to the sales guy about my husband's current diagnoses and what I was looking for. He showed me a couple things, but enthusiastically suggested a product called Cell Forte MAX3, which is IP-6 and Inositol, plus Maitake extract and Cat's Claw. Has anyone used this? It says to take 2 capsules a day for maintenance, but that you can take up to 16 a day if you need extra support. I have done some web searches and it seems that IP-6 and Inositol is a hot topic of study in regards to cancer. I guess I have a couple questions. Any idea if what I bought is as good as, better than, or worse than a standard 3 mushroom complex? (Or should we use both?). And has anyone been told anything about using this complex while receiving chemotherapy? If you've used it during chemo, how much did you take? Our onc is fairly "old school" and it's not the type of place that offers much in the way of nutritional information (although they have other good points!). I'm fairly knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition, but when we start talking supplements, I have a lot to learn and like everyone, not enough time to become an expert overnight. Thanks for any info! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
