Doctor: Natural remedies proven to reduce risk of melanoma recurrence

May 22, 2009 by  

Natural remedies proven to reduce risk of melanoma recurrenceWith the medical community marking the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month, one expert has talked about natural approaches to reducing the risk of recurrence of this deadly skin cancer.

Dr. Gary S. Rogers, professor of dermatology at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, says that even if you beat melanoma, you have an increased risk of getting another one in the future.

"With melanoma, you can never let your guard down," he emphasizes.

Rogers says melanoma survivors can benefit from eating foods rich in antioxidants, such as legumes, green leafy vegetables, carrots, fish such as salmon, fruits, whole grains and flax seed.

He also recommends adding antioxidant supplements to the daily diet, including beta carotene, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E and fish oils.

There is furthermore evidence that drinking up to two glasses of red wine a day may be helpful due to resveratrol, a polyphenol found in the skins of grapes that has potent anti-cancer properties and becomes concentrated in red wine during the fermentation process.

    Consumer Lab, the recognized independent authority on supplement and over the counter drug testing, evaluated the major brands of resveratrol recently and found many lacking in content and quality. None of the newer companies, most of which use some form of the word resveratrol in their name, agreed to have their products tested. The highest potency products that passed their evaluation were Biotivia’s Transmax and Bioforte. Bioforte was also the lowest price per mg of active ingredient. The test was open to all brands. The results are on the ConsumerLab web site. Also,in tests done by the University of Bologne, Italy it was found that almost 80% of all so-called resveratrol products contained either no trans-resveratrol or less than ten percent of the label claimed amount of this essential compound. This is clearly a case of buyer beware.
