Today I’d like to blend the energies of today’s ‘National Pharmacy Buyer Day’ with October’s ‘Breast Cancer Awareness Month’ by telling you about a few supplements from Mother Nature’s pharmacy. Many health practitioners extol the importance of Vitamin D in creating healthy cells, protecting bones and boosting the immune system. Studies show that Vitamin D can also help prevent breast, ovarian and prostrate cancer. In fact, a recent study found that women with healthy levels of Vitamin D in their systems were significantly less at risk of developing cancer. Reports also state that a compound found in red grapes and red wine called resveratrol could also be critical in preventing the formation and spread of certain cancer. The author of that study, Eleanor Rogan, also believes that supplementing with resveratrol can actually stop the entire progression that can lead to breast cancer. As with any advice I offer that deals with illness or imbalance, always check with a qualified professional first. But if you’re looking to proactively end the fear of contracting certain cancers, then these two supplements are a great place to start!
