In addition to noting the benefits of natural supplements, this study highlights the power of synergy, whereupon combinations of compounds may provide more benefit than the same compounds taken individually.  It also reinforces the idea that eating plant based whole foods is generally better than taking handfuls of supplements.

A double-blind, placebo-controlled randomised trial evaluating the effect of a polyphenol-rich whole food supplement on PSA progression in men with prostate cancer—the UK NCRN Pomi-T study

“The rationale and hypothesis for selecting the ingredients of this supplement were that as they originate different food sources (fruit, herb, vegetable and leaf), each with their unique profile and concentration of polyphenols, their separate anti-cancer mechanisms, summarised above, could be synergistic yet at the same time their variable composition would avoid over-consumption of one particular phytochemical.”
