Enhanced efficacy of nutrients combinations in inhibiting cancer progression

Summary This study evaluated the effect of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and green tea extract independently, compared to a micronutrient mixture containing lysine, proline, ascorbic acid and green tea extract on cancer progression, indicated by matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). MMPs are substances produced by malignant cells to digest the surrounding tissues and promote metastasis. The experiments were…

Nutrient mixture inhibits cancer progression

Summary Evidently, cancer progression, metastasis and shortened patient survival is associated with elevated levels of matrix metalloproteinase MMP-9. MMPs are substances produced by cancer cells to digest the surrounding tissues and spread through the body. Against this background, this study investigated the effect of a nutrient mixture containing lysine, proline, ascorbic acid and green tea…

Nutrient combinations with polyphenols are effective against cancer

Summary This article focuses on the effects of different nutrient combinations with polyphenols on cancer. It included studies with experiments on human cancer cell lines. A mixture containing quercetin, curcumin, green tea, cruciferous vegetables extract (cruciferex®) and resveratrol inhibited head and neck tumor growth. Furthermore, a combination of polyphenols (quercetin and green tea extract) with…
