Higher energy levels. Faster muscle recovery. Less stress and better sleep. Lower risk of cancer, dementia, and even flu. And, of course, a stronger heart and bones. These are the claims we’ve seen in health stories in just the past year about the wonder benefits of vitamin D — a nutrient that believers contend is able cure or prevent just about anything that ails us. And it seems America is…

Mixing vitamin C with antibiotics is surprisingly effective at killing off … – ScienceAlert

Friday, June 16, 2017

Scientists have developed an unusual new way to fight cancer stem cells (CSCs) – combining antibiotics with vitamin C. Not only could the compound help treat tumours, it could also reduce the chance of the cancer returning. Therapies mixing doxycycline and vitamin C (ascorbic acid) were up to 100 times more effective at killing off CSCs in the lab when compared with another anti-cancer agent being tested, 2-Deoxy-D-glucose. The new…

By Anette BreindlSenior Science Editor BOSTON – At the Thursday morning plenary of the annual meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), those who came into the plenary room carrying their morning cup of orange juice turned out to be taking care of their own stem cells. “Our data may begin to explain why people with low ascorbate levels get more cancer,” Sean Morrison told the plenary…

Vitamin C and antibiotics: A new one-two ‘punch’ for knocking-out cancer stem cells. – Science Daily

Friday, June 16, 2017

The antibiotic, Doxycycline, followed by doses of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), were surprisingly effective in killing the cancer stem cells under laboratory conditions, according to the research published in the journal Oncotarget. In boxing terms, this would be the equivalent of two blows delivered in rapid succession; a left-hand jab, followed by a right cross. The researchers say their method offers a new explanation for how to prevent cancer cells…
