I have tried it, but discontinued it while on chemo. It slows down cell division, which can be counter productive to the chemo.  I will go. Back on it once i am done with chemo. You may want to search colonclub.com. There have been a few threads on this where some found it, or believe it to be helpful. They are from about six months or so ago.

dear jane,

I have not heard of anyone here trying it either over the last few years at least.


its one therapy i have not tried, its supposed to be helpful in preventing lung mets, 

something a few of us are concerned with.

as a co-incidence i am having lentil soup tonight. if you try it, let us know what happens and your thoughts.



ps as a warning, if you are using super artimisinin, i would not do ip6, as iron is required for artemisinins method of operation. I supplement iron on the days I hve the artemisinin shots. this is controversial also as iron is need in the angiogenic process.

I have been using IP-6 for 2+ years.  I chose not to have chemo because of poor prognosis for appendix cancer stage IV.  Took IP-6 2xday for 1st year (powder), now take 2 pills 1xday along with other supplements & vitamins.
