During chemotherapy, side effects can limit the effectiveness of treatment. Nutritional support from NTFactor® and antioxidants can reduce this problem in cancer patients.

Fatigue and Chemotherapy

Overcoming the Most Common Chemotherapy Side Effect

  • NTFactor® reduced fatigue in 57 to 70 percent of cancer patients
  • Improved other adverse effects of cancer therapy

Nutritional support with NTFactor® and antioxidants offers hope for overcoming the most prevalent and disabling side effect of cancer therapy: fatigue. Over 75 percent of cancer patients experience fatigue as a side effect of chemotherapy, although only 32 percent of treating physicians recognize this problem. However, both patients and physicians recognize that fatigue is a more common problem than pain during cancer therapy, and a significant reason why patients discontinue therapy.

While there has been little progress in reducing this debilitating condition during cancer treatment, research shows that NTFactor® plus antioxidants have reduced fatigue in 57 to 70 percent of cancer patients. The same nutritional combination has also improved other adverse effects of cancer therapy, such as pain, nausea, vomiting, malaise, diarrhea, headaches, rashes and infections.
