How do vitamins combat cancer-related fatigue?

ANSWER

Make sure you are getting enough vitamins. Take a vitamin supplement if you're not sure you are getting enough nutrients. A recommended supplement would be a multivitamin that provides at least 100% of the recommended daily allowances (RDA) for most nutrients. Note: vitamin supplements do not provide calories, which are essential for energy production. So vitamins cannot substitute for adequate food intake. Also, some doctors are strict about vitamin intake during chemotherapy. so be sure to discuss what vitamins you can take safely.
