How does Ip-6 work?

IP-6 might help treat and prevent cancer by slowing down the production of cancer cells. It might also bind to certain minerals, decreasing the risk of colon cancer.

Are there safety concerns?

IP-6 is safe when used in amounts found in foods. There isn't enough information to know if it is safe when used in medicinal amounts.

Do not take IP-6 in medicinal amounts if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have a low iron condition called iron-deficiency anemia.
  • You have a bone condition called osteoporosis or osteopenia.
  • You are scheduled for surgery in the next two weeks. IP-6 might increase the risk of bleeding.
