Breast cancer is the second most common cancer worldwide and the most commonly occurring malignancy in women. There is growing evidence that lifestyle factors, including diet, body weight, and physical activity, may be associated with higher breast cancer risk. Studies of nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D, folic acid, lycopene, and others also seem to support a relationship to reduced risk of breast cancer.
The Riordan Clinic Breast Lab Health Profile is a tool that can be a part of a woman’s breast cancer prevention strategy. The panel assesses levels of nine nutrients that may be correlated with breast health and provides women with important information to help them develop strategies to optimize risk reduction.
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C (Plasma, Urine)
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
- Folic Acid (Folate)
- Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
- Selenium (RBC)
