Discover 6 valuable nutrients for cancer patients

A well-balanced diet rich in nutrients won’t cure cancer, but it can help give you the energy you now need more than ever. The better your nutritional status, the better your body can take the strain from surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and also the better your immune response functions.1

Omega-3 fatty acids can be found especially in fatty, cold-water fish such as salmon.

Fiber can be found in plant foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes.

You can get fluids not only from water, but also from milk, juices, broth or other.
