Can I take during chemotherapy?

I'm not a doctor....I did take a superfood during chemo, and that was a good idea. Speaking personally, I have to be careful of anything containing barley grass, because I'm slightly intolerant of it and it makes me sleepy, and sometimes it makes me sniffle. Also, you should ask your doctor or a nutritionist if this product contains antioxidants, because that would be counter productive. I believe chemo IS an oxidant and you wouldn't want to fight your chemo.

I was told during my treatments with chemotherapy to avoid bioflavonoids. The deal is chemo is killing cells. Specially the fast growing cells of the body. So this may best be a question for the chemo team pharmacist. Of course finding out the half life of the chemo can guide you. Skip the product before chemo and start again after the half life. I used a less flavorful (just greens) product with a 1/4 teaspoon of this and felt it an easy way to get healthful foods into me.

Yes full of Good Nutrition, your body will need all the support it can get. I have a scoop every morning with my Smoothie, blends very well. Can't go wrong with this product, it's Organic too! Sharon
