I purchased a case for my brother who is battling stage 4 lung cancer. He has been through so many chemo treatments, I have lost count. After his first day of Ricochet, he instantly could tell a difference! His recovery time after chemo and his multiple hospital stays was significant compared to before he was taking Ricochet. Thank you!
RICOCHET is immunonutrition scientifically formulated to decrease the adverse effects of Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments.
In a RCT patients undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy for esophageal cancer randomly received ω-3-rich enteral nutrition.4 This study showed:
ω-3-rich EN support decreased the frequency of chemotherapyinduced mucosal toxicities, such as stomatitis and diarrhea, and exhibited a hepatoprotective effect during chemotherapy, compared with the ω-3-poor EN support.
