Potentiating Supplements to Use during the SuCCeED IVC Protocol

Below are listed some of the supplements that have significantly demonstrated efficacy in potentiating the ability of very high-dose intravenous vitamin C to kill cancer (40g/hr. +/-20g, for 1-3 hours).  It is expected that they will also have the same potentiating effect with the SuCCeED IVC Protocol.

    • Alpha Lipoic Acid1
    • Vitamin E 2
    • Vitamin K3 if possible (Apatonetm)1,3, otherwise do take Vitamin K1 or K2 4
    • Lecithin5
    • Artemisinin if possible6
    • D­fraction (Maitake mushroom) supplement if possible7
    • DCA (dichloroacetate)8
    • Quercetin3
    • Curcumin3
    • Do with other oxidative therapies. Hypoxia at the cancer site is likely the #1 reason when treatment efficacy falls short of in vitro success. Here’s how to mitigate that:
      • O2 Mask
      • Ozone generator in the room
      • Hyperbaric Oxygen
      • DCA (dichloroacetate) administration
      • Exercise Bike, increases blood flow to tumor and oxygenation
    • Do reasonable Conventional Chemotherapy


Note some of these are available in a combined supplement called IVC Max (by Aidan Products, associated with the Riordan Clinic).  This is easily found with a websearch.  It contains many of the supplements mentioned herein specifically for the purpose of potentiating IVC.  The ingredients as of this published date as shown in this nutrition fact label shown here.


It is mentioned here as definitely being beneficial because of the Vitamin K1, ALA, and Quercetin, which is convenient to have in one supplement.  The additional ingredients should have a possible to likely effect in improving efficacy.
