There is a lack of scientific information on this.
I would suggest discussing all your current medications and supplements with your oncologist to see what the interactions may be. Some nutritional supplements seem encouraging but in general lack rigorous testing. But, if you perceive benefit and your physician does not feel that it will harm than i in general encourage patients to consider.
