- Vitamin D and Omega-3 have separately been found to help many diseases
- This is one of the rare studies which actually got around to trying both – and found a synergistic benefit
- Overview: Omega-3 many benefits include helping vitamin D
- Vitamin D monotherapy is good, Vitamin D multitherapy is great
- Vitamin D use increased 3.7 X, Omega-3 increased 9 X (US 1999-2012) – JAMA Oct 2016
- Hypothesis – anticancer benefits from synergy of omega-3 and vitamin D – May 2011
- Omega-3 prevents and treats several cancers – Sept 2017

Breast cancer is a leading type of cancer in women and generally classified into three subtypes of ER+ /PR+ , HER2+ and triple negative. Both omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin D3 play positive role in the reduction of breast cancer incidence. However, whether combination of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin D3 has stronger protective effect on breast carcinogenesis still remains unknown. In this study, we show that the combination of ω-3 free fatty acids (ω-3 FFAs) and 1α, 25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3 (VD3 ) dramatically enhances cell apoptosis among three subtypes of breast cancer cell lines. Bcl-2 and total PARP protein levels are decreased in combined treatment MCF-7 and SK-BR-3 cells. Caspase signals play a vital role in cell apoptosis induced by combination. Moreover, Raf-MAPK signaling pathway is involved in the apoptosis induction by combination of ω-3 FFAs+VD3 . These results demonstrate that the induction of cell apoptosis by combined treatment is dependent on different signaling pathways in three subtypes of breast cancer cell lines.
