A new large-scale study has shown a promising association between long-term consumption of antioxidants and breast cancer prevention.
Supplementation of zinc in premenopausal women, and supplementation of multiple vitamin, beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc in postmenopausal women for 10 or more years was linked with a lower risk of developing breast cancer.
- Those supplementing Zinc for 10 years or longer had less than half the risk of premenopausal and postmenopausal breast cancer, compared with those who did not take any supplements.
- Most of the nutrients featured in the study are covered by a combination of Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Vitality 1 plus Skin Defender.
Skin Vitality contains the ten supplemented vitamins and minerals which were examined in the study: multiple vitamins, Vitamins A, C, E, B-Complex vitamins, Beta-Carotene, Calcium, Iron, Zinc and Selenium.
Skin Defender contains Vitamins C, E, Beta-Carotene and Zinc, plus Phyto nutrients such as Lycopene, which was identified as one of the dietary antioxidants that appear to provide extra support.
