While chemotherapy and radiation have lengthened or even saved the lives of cancer patients over time. Radiation therapy has been used in cancer treatment for many decades; it is used to eradicate cancer and as a palliative to relieve pain associated with metastases. there is also no doubt that these two treatments come with an array of side effects including, nausea, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, hair loss, mouth sores, skin rash, fatigue, insomnia and more.
THE IMPORTANCE OF VITAMIN C AND GLUTATHIONE.
Powerful antioxidants Vitamin C and Glutathione work synergistically to offset the oxidation that naturally occurs with both cancer and the chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Vitamin C works explicitly to support white blood cell production, while Glutathione also promotes healthy detoxification. The use of these antioxidants may help protect normal cells from the increased damage and side effects caused by radiation therapy.
