Cabot Health (formerly Sandra Cabot's Health Formulations) Breast Health capsules combine important nutrients that help to support breast health. Vitamin D, Iodine and Selenium are required for the maintenance of healthy breast tissue. The ingredients in this formula not only support breast health, but also help to improve your immune system, thyroid function, and bone health.
Contains Vitamin D
Vitamin D is an important immune-regulating vitamin that plays an important role in the maintenance of healthy breast tissue. Breast tissue has receptors for Vitamin D for it to bind to. Research has shown that Vitamin D may influence the cells in how they develop, divide or die.
The majority of this mineral is stored in the thyroid gland but a large amount is also found in breast tissue. Iodine may act as an antioxidant in the breast, to reduce the damage caused by free radicals. Studies have shown that iodine deficiency may increase the risk of breast cysts.
This important trace mineral is the precursor to one of the most powerful antioxidant in the body, glutathione. Selenium may help to reduce inflammation in the body, support a healthy immune system and may help to protect breast tissue.
Zinc plays an important role in supporting healthy thyroid function and supporting the immune system.
Factors that may increase your need for these nutrients
Unfortunately, it can be difficult to obtain an adequate amount of these nutrients from your diet alone. This is due to the depletion of minerals in the soil, processing and mass production of foods and poor absorption of vitamins and minerals due to intestinal inflammation.
Adults: Take 1 capsule daily with food, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
