Q & A: Can a breast cancer survivor take Tamoxifen and Protandim?

This is an archive imported from our former site. Please excuse the messyness.

QuestionIf some is taking Tamoxifen after surviving breast cancer, can they take Protandim as well?  Are there any problems with interactions of these two?

AnswerThank you very much for your question. This website is not intended to represent LifeVantage, I would try to answer:

a. We need to remember and stand by statement that Protandim does not treat, cure or mitigate disease.

b. Individuals should address this issue with their medical oncologist or radiation oncologist. Bear in mind, that not all doctors may be familiar with oxidative stress/NRF2 and indeed Protandim.  Here is a small study done on Protandim and DCIS, The FASEB Journal Abstract April 2012. Also please find the paper on Nrf2, a master regulator of detoxification and also antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and other cytoprotective mechanisms, is raised by health promoting factors - Feb 15.   All the best to you and please keep promoting health.
