Cancer Support Wellness Box

$49.95

Research on the role of nutrients in cancer prevention is ever evolving, but what we do know: Vegetables and fruits are complex foods, containing numerous vitamins, minerals, fiber, carotenoids, flavonoids, and other bioactive substances that may help prevent cancer. Once cancer treatment is complete, maintaining a nutritious eating routine can help the body heal and offer protection for the future.

Receiving a diagnoses of cancer or having a strong family history of cancer can be unnerving as cancer is the second leading cause of death in both men and women in the United States. This wellness box includes a variety of vegetables—dark green, red, and orange, and whole fruits with a variety of colors.*

The National Cancer Institute recommends eating at least five servings of fruits and/or vegetables per day. These foods boost your intake of cancer-preventing fiber and immunity-boosting antioxidants. It's easy to get five servings. Let's say you have fruit juice with breakfast, a vegetable side dish with lunch, a piece of fruit as a snack, a vegetable with dinner and a fruit-based dessert. That's five servings for the whole day. No food, and certainly no one fruit, can prevent or fight cancer.* 


Start working toward a goal of five servings of cruciferous vegetables per week, and a total of 2.5-3 cups of non-starchy vegetables per day. This will ensure you are eating enough of these superfoods and receiving all the health benefits they contain.

Cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage, as well as dark leafy vegetables such as kale and collard greens. They are rich in vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant and supports the immune system. They are also rich in glucosinolates, a phytochemical that can decrease inflammation, which is a risk factor for cancer. 


Winter squash is another powerhouse vegetable. It is an excellent source of vitamin A and a good source of vitamin C and dietary fiber. While pumpkin is the winter squash most people are familiar with, acorn, spaghetti and butternut squashes are also great choices. Vitamin A and its precursors, beta-carotene and alpha-carotene, are important for promoting immune health and keeping cells healthy. Dietary fiber is important for weight control, which is a key prevention strategy for seven different cancers.*

Nutrients support the growth of healthy cells in your body, helping you maintain energy and strength. While you navigate the treatment process, it is most important to find the best food choices based on what you like to eat and what you are able to tolerate. Use these tips to help increase nutrient intake:
• Small, frequent snacks may be easier to tolerate than the typical three large meals per day.
• Choose foods that are easy to chew, swallow, digest and absorb. Foods like scrambled eggs, oatmeal, avocado, mashed potatoes, yogurt, steamed vegetables, skinless fruit, applesauce and baked fish may be easier tolerated through the first days of cancer treatments
