This special Breast Cancer Awareness Bundle includes our Athlete’s Best Premium Omega-3 Plus & Vitamins D and K.
Please read the following paragraphs with the understanding that we are in no way saying that these products will prevent breast cancer. We are offering this bundle as research has shown promising results when women have higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids and higher levels of vitamin D in their body.
We recommend knowing your what your vitamin D level is. This can be tested through a simple blood test that can be ordered by your doctor or even online in the form of a finger prick test. Research has shown a strong link between vitamin D and breast cancer. Studies have shown that women with low levels of vitamin D are more likely to develop breast cancer. In fact, if your level is over 70 IU, your risk of breast cancer drops 80%!
Studies have also shown that in women who already have breast cancer, low levels of vitamin D are linked to worse outcomes, like bigger tumors, cancer spreading to other body parts and death. The supplement included in this bundle features 5000 IU of Vitamin D3, which is the proper form for your body to absorb, as well as vitamins K and sea iodine. Adding vitamin K helps calcium to form in the bones, rather than the arteries. Each bottle includes 60 capsules and is a 60 day supply (1 capsule a day).
Secondly, we have added our Athlete’s Best Premium Omega-3 Plus in this bundle as it’s a foundation supplement for overall health and wellness. Our unique formula is specifically designed to raise your omega-3 index, or total amount of omega-3 fatty acids within your blood. The key level that’s associated with the benefits from omega-3s is a level over 8%. Most Americans have levels between 3-5%. Our product gets most users above the critical 8% level within 3 months. This also can be tested with a simple blood test – available online, or through your doctor.
Omega-3 deficiency is a common underlying factor for cancer. There have been a lot of studies specifically focusing on the relationship between omega-3 levels and breast cancer. Research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids may lower the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal obese women. The protection likely comes from the fatty acids’ anti-inflammatory effects, say authors. Other study headlines include:
•Omega-3 fats inhibit a pro-inflammatory enzyme called cyclooxygenase 2 (COX 2), which promotes breast cancer.
•Omega-3 fats activate a type of receptor in cell membranes called peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-. PPAR- is not only a key regulator of lipid (fat) metabolism, but is also capable of shutting down proliferative activity in a variety of cells including breast cells.
•Omega-3 fats increase the expression of two genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2. BRCA1 (breast cancer gene 1) and BRCA2 (breast cancer gene 2) are tumor suppressor genes that, when functioning normally, help repair damage to DNA, thus helping to prevent cancer development.
Each bottle represents a 45 day supply (2 capsules a day). We are also donating 10% of all sales to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This foundation gives 91% to research, whereas many other charities give much, much less of the actual donations.

Other healthful tips:
1) Eat only high-quality, natural, nutrient dense foods.
2) Avoid alcohol – or limit to only special occasions.
3) Avoid harmful environmental exposures – BPA, Aluminum in deodorant (search for a natural brand you like).
4) Stress Less & Get Proper Sleep
5) Exercise – Maintain healthy blood sugar balance and body weight
6) Consider thermography as it can be an empowering screening tool, as it can detect the potential for cancer. By identifying areas of high inflammation, you can address the underlying cause of the inflammation before cancer has a chance to develop.
