Nutraceutical use may be targeted at any number of health-related goals. Numerous nutraceutical classifications exist. Within each nutraceutical class, are nutraceuticals with oncologic benefits. Therefore, this presentation seeks to illustrate nutraceutical classification with an emphasis on preventive, complementary (additive, synergistic, or adverse effect ameliorating), and alternative (curative) oncologic nutraceuticals. Most nutraceutical categories abound with existing or potential alternative, complementary, and preventive oncologic nutraceuticals. Organic acids may be chemopreventive. Alkaloids are well established as chemopreventive via Camellia sinensis, and alternative, via Taxus spp. derivatives. Polysaccharides include immune boosting chemopreventive mushrooms and complementary ginseng, which reduces radiation therapy adverse effects. Organosulphurs may inhibit lung cancer and prevent estrogen excess driven cancers. Docosahexanoic acid has dose-dependent anti prostate cancer activity. Nutraceutical bases for homeopathic remedies retain direct medicinal activity. The breadth and depth of nutraceuticals should result in more than 25% of conventional pharmaceuticals being nutraceutical derived. Bio-pharmacologic engineering harnessing microorganisms to produce phytonutrients reduces the likelihood of supply limitations that have affected Taxus spp. derivatives. The future could experience decreased cancer incidence, more tolerable and more effective cancer treatment.
