Phytonutrients, also called phytochemicals, are natural compounds made by all plants. Many of these natural active compounds exhibit anti-inflammatory and anti-tumour activity. There are thousands of different phytonutrients that can both prevent and treat disease.
Phytonutrient supplements are a vital part of Quantum Clinic’s Integrative Cancer Programme.
These are some of the phytonutrients we use:
Medicinal mushroom extracts (including 30% Beta Glucans)
Organic whole Camellia sinensis (green tea) including active EGCG and L-theanine
Lipid-based curcumin, optimized to deliver free, active curcumin to target tissues
Milk thistle extract (80% Silymarin)
Proteolytic enzymes (including bromelain, papain, nattokinase, amylase, lipase)
Organic Boswellia Serrata (Frankincense)
High dose EPA and DHA omega 3 from marine algae
Organic supergreens (spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, wheat grass)
The products we use are chosen for their activity, purity and bio-availability. Their bioavailability is further enhanced by boosting your microcirculation, thus increasing cellular delivery of the active compounds.
Besides the above active phytonutrients, we also use natural vitamins and minerals derived from organic whole food sources, to support your overall health and wellbeing. The combination used is individualised for each person, with targeted nutrients provided depending on the results of the comprehensive nutritional laboratory analysis we perform at the beginning of the programme.
