Cancer prevention, Cancer management and the role that nutrition and nutraceutical supplementation play is vital in maintaining good health and a strong immune system.

 

Cancer prevention and the human body

The human gut microbiome significantly affects the health of the human body. Human physiology such as metabolism, nutrient absorption, and immune function are all affected. Imbalances in the microbiome of the human body are linked to a multitude of disorders. These include inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, asthma, psychiatric illnesses, and cancers.

 

Probiotics and the body

As a kind of functional foods, probiotics have been shown to play a protective role against cancer development in animal models. Clinical application of probiotics indicated that some probiotic strains could diminish the incidence of postoperative inflammation in cancer patients. Chemotherapy or radiotherapy-related diarrhoea was relieved in patients who were administered oral probiotics. The present review summarizes the up-to-date studies on probiotic effects and the underlying mechanisms related to cancer. At present, it is commonly accepted that most commercial probiotic products are generally safe and can improve the health of the host. By modulating intestinal microbiota and immune response, some strains of probiotics can be used as an adjuvant for cancer prevention or/and treatment.
