Shellie12,

Your essential reading as a patient should include Dr. AKM Shamsuddin's 2014 text available at Amazon. Be very careful with the so-called "reviews" of people here who have picked up from websites using 30 year old data and related misconceptions about the IP6 molecule and its being an "anti-nutrient" or its binding to important minerals. Dr. Shamsuddin clears up these misconceptions in his book (see pages 97 to 108, approx.).

The most important factor in using IP6 is finding the effective dosage level for the aggressiveness of your cancer cells and the stage of disease progression you are experiencing. (Dr. Shamsuddin, reviewing the research he and others have conducted, says repeatedly that IP6 is dose-dependent and tme-dependent. I found that I have to take at least 12 scoops (Gleason 8) of the powder form of IP6 (there are capsules available but I didn't find them to be efficient) to successfully dominate the cancer cells. (There are two OTC IP6 powder products available with scoops and both have acceptable quality. I have been on IP6 for almost three years (started in summer 2015). Cancer can not develop resistance to IP6 by the way. My doctors decline to talk to me about IP6. My current urologist accepts it though he does not know much about it. Neither does my primary care physician. I recently had my lowest PSA score since having been diagnosed in 2012: 0.06.

I credit the IP6 with having helped significantly but with multiple variables, single variable causality is impossible. The multiple variables go beyond lupron and IP6. I also take European milk thistle with isosylibin B, berberine (natural form of Metformin), curcumin/turmeric, Beta Glucan with vitamin C and rserveratrol, and capsaicin. Following Tomatoman's suggestions, I also get heavy lycopene doses weekly through tomator sauce, juice, etc.

My urologist credits the lupron for everything good happening, and he is ready to overlook the fact I have been on lupron for 5 years and never had a PSA score this low.

Some day I will become resistant to lupron and then I will be moving into a different kind of battle.

For a starting dose, I began with 12 scoops in 2015 in divided doses daily and then, when it was clearly working, I cut back to 6 to save money and to see if that would be effective, but learned 12 was minimal.

 Good luck,

The Happy Vegan, CalBear74

Hello CalBear,

Thank you for the info about IP6 and your use of it.

Do you take more than one scoop at a time for your dosings in order to get 12 scoops per day ?

Take Care,

Monty

am sure the fella will answer you but what i have learn is one scoop is the same as 8 tablets  so 2 scoops a day on a emply stomach usually morning and night    that dose is for cancer  for general health  a lot less does

With IP6 & Inositol, you will find two companies selling powder. The powder is a better choice than the capsules as one scoop equals 6-7capsules. For a cancer patient, that would be a LOT OF CAPSULES every day. Always take IP6 on an empty stomach (two hours, no food including beverages like milk). Never take IP6 with milk. Do not mix it with anything having protein. It will bind to protein molecules and be less effective.If you don't like the flavoring, mix it with a juice,like the Ocean Spray DIET fruit juices, like the Cranberry blends: Cran-Grape, Blueberry, CranRasp, etc. Don't eat anything for at least 30 minutes, preferably 60. Put 6 scoops into container with a lid so you can shake it vigorously for 30 seconds. I then drink it down in one long pull. Don't try mixing it with anything else. Sorry. 

My dosing was effective at the total of 12 scoops a day,6 in the early AM, and 6 in the late afternoon. I went to 8 to see if I could get a low PSA even lower and it seems to have worked. PSA at my last two 6 month testings: 0.06.

However, I must point out that I became a vegan last summer. I also am taking beta glucan following Dr. Vaclav Vetvicka (University of Louisville Medical School and author of Beta Glucan: Nature's Secret). Dr. Vetvicka urges patients to  consider taking resveratrol and vitamin C with the beta glucan. Consult his book as it contains reports on the varying types of beta glucan and which are most effective.

I have been taking European Milk thistle with isosylibin B, berberine, capsaicin (cayenne powder in capsules), grape seed extract, and quercetin.

With all these supplements, I can not with any certainty say the incremental improvement all came from the difference between 12 and 16. Remember what Dr. Shamsuddin says repeatedly in his text as he reviews the results of research: IP6 is dose-dependent and time-dependent. The more you take and the longer you take it, the better the results. Too often I have seen people say they, or a relative tried it and it didn't work for them. But their dose was too low to be effective for them. Not all patients take a specific, uniform dose. That is not how IP6 works.

Good luck,

Your happy vegan, CalBear74

Hello Shellie12,

Thank you for the reply & info. The way you described is how I've been taking IP6...2 scoops a day on an empty stomach. I was wondering how CalBear manages 12 scoops a day & wanted to verify if he took multiple scoops each time or not. I guess it could be done, but would seem to be a challenge to take 12 scoops independently over the course of a day...each on an empty stomach.

Thanks again and Take Care, Monty

Hey Shelllie12,

I've been using it for a little over two years...for stage 4 prostate cancer.  I hope it helps your uncle.  

Take Care,
