C-Max: Maximizing the Cancer Fighting Power of Vitamin C

Cancer is more prevalent than ever, and the therapies prescribed to address it range from herbs to radiation and everything in between.

In spite of its lack of promotion, vitamin C has occupied a central role among natural cancer therapies. It’s potent, safe, and even addresses other therapeutic concerns and supports general health at the same time.

What is more, science has found that when synergistic nutrients are added to vitamin C, its ability to address cancer is significantly improved. And this is what brings us to what is known as CK3 therapy, and by extension, C-Max.

CK3 (vitamin C and vitamin K3) therapy was introduced in 2003 by Verrax, Delveaux, Jamison and others as a “new, non-toxic adjuvant cancer therapy.” https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0223523403000825?via%3DihubThe authors noted that CK3 causes a “new” type of cancer cell death called autoschizis.

Subsequent studies of CK3 therapy found that cancer cell death is accentuated when CK3 therapy is administered at a ratio of 1000:1 (C:K3). Bonilla-Porras, Jimenez-Del Rio and Valez-Pardo (2011) found that “[cancer] cell death was more prominent when [Jurkat and K562] cells are exposed to VC and VK3 in a ratio 1000:1 (10 mM: 10 μM) or 100:1 (300 μM: 3 μM), respectively.” https://cancerci.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1475-2867-11-19.  

C-Max utilizes this same ratio, but instead of utilizing intravenous delivery, it utilizes natural phospholipid liposomes that can be taken orally.

Research into CK3 has continued into the present. Below are a variety of links to recent studies of the chemotherapeutic efficacy of the combination of vitamins C and K3. Some of these analyze CK3 as a standalone therapy; others for its synergistic effect with pharmaceutical approaches.
