Vitamin C

The importance of Vitamin C in combating cancer is of paramount importance.   The body has two intrinsic lines of defense against the growth of a tumor, both of which involve Vitamin C:


1. The first is our immune system. Even after the most successful surgery, radiation or chemotherapy exercise, some cancer cells are bound to remain. It is our immune system that hunts down these cells and kills them. Vitamin C is required to mobilize specialized cells that fight cancer and other infections too. Under severe duress, the immune system is challenged and needs high amounts of Vitamin C. In a nutritionally deficient body, the supplies of Vitamin C dwindle, resulting in unstoppable growth of tumors.  Says Dr. Tony Jimenez, "Each of us produces several hundred cancer cells every day of our lives. Whether we develop clinical cancer or not depends upon the ability of our immune system to destroy these cancer cells. That’s because cancer thrives in the presence of a deficient immune system and a nutrient-deprived body."

2. Cancer cells secrete an enzyme, hyaluronidase, that breaks down the collagen-hyaluronic acid cement that holds all our cells together. Vitamin C is required for the development of collagen and the fibrous matrix. This is why it is so important to all tissue related problems, including disc injuries, gum problems, vascular diseases and even skeletal problems. It is a reasonable leap of logic that chronic deficiency of Vitamin C is a major contributor to osteoporosis as well. 

At Hope4Cancer we use Vitamin C in conjunction with other therapies.  Depending on the case, either Vitamin C therapy might be recommended or it might be incorporated into the diet.
