IV vitamin C improves quality of life in breast cancer patients

Posted on Mar 31, 2013 in Research

A German study of 125 breast cancer patients finds that intravenous vitamin C improves quality of life., and that it can be used safely during chemotherapy or radiation. Patients who received intravenous vitamin C concurrent with their chemotherapy or radiation had significant improvements in their tolerance of conventional therapy. Intravenous vitamin C is a pro-oxidant, not an antioxidant, so it can be used concurrently with many chemotherapy or radiation therapy regimens.
