There are many factors that contribute to whether we develop cancer or not, and while some like family history are pre-determined, there are many others that we can control. All cells in the body are constantly replicating and growing. Cancer occurs when there is damage to the DNA of the cells, causing abnormal cells to form, replicate and grow. This damage to the genetic material in the cells is usually caused by free radicals. While it was thought for many years that genetics was + Read more >
the most important factor in whether someone developed cancer or not, research has shown that this is not the case. Having an overall health plan that incorporates diet, exercise, taking cancer prevention supplements, preventative medical screening, reducing stress and limiting environmental exposure to toxins can all help reduce the risk of developing cancer. Cancer prevention supplements should include antioxidants to help combat the damage done to cells by free radicals. These include Vitamin C with bioflavonoids, Vitamin E, Lycopene, Grape seed extract, Selenium, and Green Tea extract. In addition to using cancer prevention supplements that are high in antioxidants, providing support for a strong immune system is also important. When the immune system is strong and functioning at optimal levels, it has the ability to destroy abnormal cells growing in the body. Give your immune system an extra boosting with cancer prevention supplements that contain Vitamin B complex, Colostrums, Garlic, Essiac, and Cordyceps. Because we are exposed to numerous toxins on a daily basis in the environment, our bodies need help to cleanse these from our systems. Using a high quality cleansing and detoxification program helps to cleanse the colon of toxins that have built up. Following an internal cleanse, maintaining intestinal health can be supported by adding acidophilus and fibre supplements to a cancer prevention supplements program. Eating a whole-food diet, limiting consumption of animal products, drinking filtered water and following a regular exercise program are all important to overall health and enhancing the effectiveness of any cancer prevention supplements regime. Body Energy Club’s vitamin store has Canada’s best online prices and selection for all your cancer prevention supplements. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound found in various berries (cranberry, blueberry, grapes) and herbs. Studies with trans-resveratrol have reported a diverse range of benefits in the areas of heart health, immunity and inflammation. Research has also revealed that trans-resveratrol mimics the biological longevity effects of a calorie-restricted diet. There is no doubt that many among us, in the context of dinner-party banter or some other setting conducive to the transfer of anecdotal wisdom, have heard that a glass of wine a day is good for your health. ‘A healthy heart and a long life' is usually the jist of this particular nugget of scientifically secular populist enlightenment. The long life that is inferred is attributable to a substance that the scientifically observant elite have identified as resveratrol, a phytonutrient originating -in this case - in the vinyards. Resveratrol, in turn, elicits this wondrous effect largely by mimicking many of the biological chain of events seen in the practice of Calorie Restriction Optimum Nutrition (CRON), or simply Caloric Restriction (CR).$33.88
Aor Active Green Tea is a high-potency standardized extract of green tea, high in epigallocatechin gallate, believed to be the key phytonutrient in green tea, responsible for its health benefits. Studies most consistently report health benefits in persons drinking ten cups a day of high-EgCG sencha-style Japanese green tea; each cup of this tea contains 150 milligrams of EgCG. The labels of most green tea extracts exaggerate the number of cups of tea represented in their capsules by comparing the product to poor-quality teas. Active Green Tea allows you to more fully enjoy the healthy properties of a sencha-rich lifestyle without consuming large volumes of tea.

C+ Bioflavonoids contains pure vitamin C with the synergistic action of citrus bioflavonoids, rich in eriocitrin, hesperidin, neohesperidin, and other flavonols, flavanones, and flavones and their glycosides. Bioflavonoids synergistically support the functions of vitamin C, "recharging" oxidized ascorbate and apparently assisting in the maintenance of capillaries, as well as being potent phenolic antioxidants in their own right.

Carnosine is a dipeptide found in high concentrations in brain and muscle tissues. A potent inhibitor of damage to proteins from sugar (glycation) and scavenger of free radicals, carnosine has been shown to reverse cellular senescence in culture. Preliminary evidence suggests that it may provide support conditions of sub-optimal brain homocarnosine metabolism leading to impairment in social interaction, communication, stereotyped behavior, and symbolic or imaginative interaction.

Ginkgo Biloba 50:1 is a well-standardized, precision Ginkgo extract, meeting European pharmacopoeia standards for content of key phytochemicals, and containing not more than 5 ppm of ginkgolic acids. Ginkgo is widely used in Europe for the maintenance of healthy cognitive function, due to its support for cerebrovascular microcirculation and antioxidant properties. However, Ginkgo has many drug interactions, and for many people Vinpocetine will therefore be a better choice for these purposes.

Glycine is the simplest of all amino acids required for protein synthesis in the body. Research supports a role for glycine in supporting a wide range of bodily structures and functions, including release of somatotropin (human growth hormone), memory function, healthy thought patterns, collagen synthesis, normal cell growth and development, glucose metabolism after a carbohydrate load, and preventing unhealthy angiogenesis (blood vessel formation).

Green Lipped FFATM is the stable free fatty acid extract of Perna canaliculus, the New Zealand green-lipped mussel. This extract contains an unique profile of fatty acids not found in significant amounts in standard fish oil supplements. These fatty acids modulate the body's production of eicosanoids, key local cellular "hormones" involved in inflammatory responses, acting through inhibition of 5- and 12-lypoxygenase and other key enzymes. Studies show that these effects make this mixture more effective nutritional support than conventional fish oils.
