How to Buy DCA

We still recommend the 3 DCA suppliers below  strictly based on the fact that they have been around for more than 3 years and we have tested the products ourselves in the past.

Sodium Dichloroacetate NaDCA available on line will cost $2-$3 per day.

You have obviously arrived here because yourself or someone in your life has cancer. Please take a minute and go to the home page of this site and read some of the published medical journal articles on DCA. Get an understanding of the Warburg effect the scientific principle behind this discovery, and you will then not question whether DCA works! This is not a hoax, this is not just one major University making the claim, there are papers published on this site from many major Universities.

The American Cancer Society warns you that these sellers are out to fleece desperate people of their money”.If you do your research you will be disappointed to find that these organizations you should be able to trust are actually working hand in hand with the Pharma companies to suppress any non pharma cancer treatment.

As we have said on this site NaDCA is a very simple molecule resembling vinegar and is documented in peer reviewed medical journal studies as being as safe to take for healthy people as it is for sick people.

If you are still questioning whether DCA works you need to only answer for yourself 2 questions.

1) Is the Warburg effect really the law of cancer? (meaning that all normal cells achieve respiration from Oxygen and all cancer cells receive respiration from glucose) PROOF….. The Warburg effect is the science behind the PET scan machine (patient is injected with radio active glucose and cancer cells light up on the screen) What Wargurg discovered was that when a cell became a cancer cell (reverted to glucose respiration) the mitochondria shut down. The mitochondria is the control center of a cell, every day as our cells divide the mitochondria looks at the cell and if it’s dna is not correct, (a bad cell) it kills itself through a process known as apoptosis. Every day our bodies expel millions of bad cells through apoptosis.  Therefore a cancer cell is simply a cell that achieves energy from glucose and continues to divide and multiply without our bodies being able to kill it through the normal process of apoptosis.

2) As the University of Alberta research claims does DCA turn the mitochondria of the cancer cell back on, allowing it to recognize itself as a bad cell and trigger apoptosis? The answer is YES! Read the published articles on the home page and believe in your own research, not what someone you think should know is telling you. At the very least use this information to start questioning your treatment or the treatment of a loved one suffering from cancer.

NaDCA advocate Martin C. Winer has come up with a protocol combining NaDCA with a supplement called Avemar, the protocol can be found here, this may be a  a good option for anyone in later stage cancer or has had orthodox treatment and a weakened immune system.

This protocol has been  tested by the Medicor Cancer Clinic in Toronto with great results.

From what we have been able to find, the only supply sources at present are in China. This is due to the FDA , Health Canada and the European health agencies restrictions placed on Sodium dichloroacetate in 2007. The claimed intent of restricting NaDCA , (which is about as harmful as taking to much baking soda) being to protect us from ourselves.

For years we have seen many media reports of safety issues involving Chinese products. However, with what we have discovered about the ethics of North American drug companies and their ability to influence what the media reports to us, we began to question how bad quality issues could be. If you look into the Chinese pharmaceutical industry you will find they operate under very strict guidelines, with as much or more oversight as facilities in North America.

The truth is if there was as much medical journal published evidence that cocaine cured cancer, as there is regarding DCA, you would be asking everyone you knew if they knew a dealer! If the quality is your concern one of the online companies has every batch randomly tested in Canada.

The NaDCA clinical trails are supplied world wide by a company called TCI America and have been for decades, they do not sell to the general public. It also would appear from TCI’s sales site that the product they sell also comes from Asia. Medicor Cancer Center in Toronto claims to be purchasing their NaDCA from the USA which we would guess comes from TCI.

If you are going to take NaDCA, 100 grams is about a 90 day supply for most people treating cancer. As a supplement to prevent a cancer recurrence or just to keep you healthy 100 grams is about a 200 day supply at a half gram per day.

Keep in mind that there has not been a large demand for DCA and world wide supply is limited, one pharmaceutical company we spoke with indicated their excess available supply at 900 kg per year, that would only treat  9,000 people for 3 months. We also found that the difference in price varies in china, we found chemical companies that manufacture technical grade product are also now offering pharmaceutical grade, however pharmaceutical grade from an actual pharmaceutical company is more expensive which can be the price difference between the 3 major suppliers.

Since the amount taken is based on body weight it is not necessary to spend the extra for the product in capsules as you would only be breaking them apart to get the proper weight.

The other thing to consider is that all sites selling NaDCA were closed down by the FDA in 2007 and this could happen again, our point is if you are thinking of using NaDCA it may become hard to get as more people find out about it.

There have been some issues reported on The DCA Site regarding problems with DCA coming in from Mexico, if the price seems too cheap there could be good reason for it.

We have over the last three years received various comments and complaints about suppliers. We do not approve them without proper evidence that there is an issue with the supplier that could harm people. We set up this site as a place where people could find relative published medical Journal studies and form their own conclusions. We have long recommended these 3 sites as a source for DCA as they have been around the longest. What people may not realize is that these sites get regular orders from government buildings where the product is tested not for your protection but in an effort to catch a supplier selling something other than +99% pure dca. Believe me when I say if one of these suppliers was offering unsafe product you would have read about it everywhere, it would be a huge media circus.

We did have product tested from these 3 suppliers about 10 months ago and all passed, which I reported on this site, however I decided to take it down due to liability if there was an unexpected problem with a batch they put out. The sad part is that DCA does work and yet it is hard to get people to read through the medical journal articles and reach their own conclusions without second guessing themselves. There is a huge amount of propaganda put out by the Pharma companies disguised as Medical Websites and literally hundreds of pharma employees participating in social media sites using fear to keep people away from DCA. The last thing DCA needed is some idiot supplier trying to spread more false fear about other suppliers!

Moving Your Chemistry Forward

We will continue to purchase from simply because we have always had great service and each batch is tested in Canada for purity and any solvents or heavy metals. They also send you a test report for the batch once you have ordered. It is a little more expensive, about 20-40 cents per day. However they have always been very help full with questions. I don’t want to be seen as promoting them it is just the only supplier we have experience with, and as I said above, as far as quality goes It is my opinion that all 3 are safe to buy from.

Having the product tested yourself can cost up to $750 depending on where you go. If it is out of your budget by all means buy from whichever company you can afford.

If you do start taking NaDCA please let us know about your progress as it may help others as they try to make a decision that is best for them.


  • My brother has lung cancer and was diagnosed in oct of 2010 and the doctor gave him 6-8 months to live…I found out about the DCA and ordered it, he has been taking it everyday since which is almost 2 years now…It has kept him alive! He is still battling cancer but his tumor shrunk and cancer cells were disappearing…When you take the DCA there are guide lines you need to follow such as; stay away from all sugars, any ingredients that end in OSE is sugar contained and u need to stay away from ALL sugars as cancer feeds off sugar! As well as, you needing to eat healthy foods that fight cancer such as, asparagus, spinach and so on! There is alot to of info you need to read up on as far as what to avoid!

  • I have been researching different or alternative treatments for cancer. My Dad is suffering greatly and am willing to try something out of the box. I need to know if this had a chance of helping him??? Who on here can tell me of some success?? I am feeling desperate to try anything. Thank you!!

    • Hi Karen

      The long and the short is it certainly won’t hurt, DCA works much better if the patient has not had chemo or other orthodox treatments. here is a coment from someone that has used DCA for over 4 years.

      I have been using DCA daily for over 4 1/2 years now. After my chemotherapy failed and my cancer returned I chose to try DCA. It has been my life saving therapy. I take it every day because cancer fights you every day. And I’m still here because of DCA. To all the skeptics you are wrong, I am living proof that it works. I plan on being here for many many more years and I stand with this website to support the expansion and usage of DCA for all cancer patients.

      Thank you for even saving one more cancer patient with the knowledge that you have included in this website.

      • Thank you for your information and insight. Wondering what happened to my last post. I have tried to email the address below with some questions I have, hoping to get a reply so we can give DCA a try. I am wondering about any dietary concerns, dosage, where we can order from. Thank you so much for any help you are able to provide.

        • Sorry for late reply Karen, this wound up in the spam for some reason. There is no dietary concerns i have read about and believe me there is nothing regarding DCA i have not read. Dosage is one reason we really need further clinical trials however the way it looks now the U of Alberta will not get funding for that. In the clinical trials they used a formula of 10 mg/ per KG of body weight. by taking Vitamin B1 500 mg per day I know of many people that were able to get away with taking as much as 25mg/ per KG of body weight with no side effects. If cancer is late stage it is growing quicker and larger doses are needed it seems to cause the cells to kill themselves quicker then they are multiplying.

  • Thank you so much for your reply. I am going to email the address above. I would like to know where I can order from and what the dosage recommended is. I am holding onto this bit of hope there may be a chance. Fighting til the end, not willing to give up just yet. Thank you so much.

  • My mom was diagnosed with stage IV esophagus cancer in Sept 2011 and had surgery removed her tumor in Oct, went through radiation and chemo during Nov 2011-Feb 2012. The tumor came back in early summer 2012 and she had another round of (small amount of) radiation therapy. She is still with tumor and is experiencing back pain, probably due to tumor pressing her back bone nerve system. I am trying to see if I can find alternative treatment for her since traditional ones may take her life earlier than the cancer itself. So could you let me know whether there are cases where esophagus cancer is treated/cured or life extended by taking DCA? I am hoping DCA is a straw I can hold onto to keep my mom with us… Thank you very much if any input.

    • please read the 7th article down on the left hand side of our home page called the prime cause and prevention of cancer by Otto Warburg. understanding what cancer is and is not is the key to understanding what DCA does. all cancers are the same just different cells effected. Because of the way DCA works if it works one one cancer it must work on all types of cancer. DCA is not dangerous to take and will not do any harm, my feeling is that it is worth a try. At the very least it will extend life ( see some comments at the bottom of our home page)

  • I am wondering if you received my email sent to the address as advised above??

  • Where are the patients who have taken the DCA? And are they diagnosed cancer free or has their tumors shrunk? My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in october 2011. Its been over a year and 2 months and shes still fighting but she no longer receives treatments. Her last treatment was in May of this year. Is there any hope for her? Is this stuff forreal and can it really cure or shrink cancer cells? Please get back to me ASAP

  • Hi, im from mexico, do you now a mexican center or web page that provides DCA, or are the pages you published sells to mexico?, sorry for my english!! Regards

  • I use B17 and curcuma and apricot kernels. Can i use DCA with it together?

  • I have scirrhous gastric cancer, single cell. Very rare stomach cancer. They call it bottle stomach.Done three chemo set, going surgery to totally remove stomach. I need help to keep it from moving to other organs. I want to use 20-25 mg dose, but I am so confused. I am getting the capsules and they say they are 333mg each. I weigh 127 and trying to hold on to it. But they say 3 a day….should I take 3 a day or two??? I think the chemo is effecting by thinking, I just can compute this out.

    • Your weight would be 57 kg, so 20mg per kg of body weight would be about 3 capsules a day. One of the reasons we say to not buy capsule form as you pay more and wind up breaking them apart anyways, I always split my dose between noon and bedtime so you would take 1 and a half capsules at a time. I when i was on the higher dose i also took 500mg a day of Vitamin B1 to avoid any side effects.

  • My mother was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. My nightmare come true. Feels like I was just thinking how I don’t wanna loose my mother anytime soon and then bam she was diagnosed with this beast! I have known about DCA for a while and had it ordered the day we found this out. She started DCA three days ago. She goes for her first set of treatment chemo and radiation Monday. I just want to know if anyone has any success story’s or tips they can share. I’ve never spoke to god more in my life. My mother appetite is great…she’s sore a bit and what made her go get checked was she started wheezing a little. Anyone with any suggestions or tips or story’s of hope?

    Thank you so much,

  • All I can say is 3 weeks ago my mom was diagnosed with peritineal ovarian cancer. we started her on DCA 2 weeks ago, and he CA125 has dropped 50 points, and she feels so much better. she will start chemo next wed. but she is 78 and we are really worried how she will handle it. we are considering skipping the chemo, but not sure yet.

  • I am concerned that there are no entries from those that have tried this drug and confirmed its sucess…are there any out there that can comment one way or the other…if all information is correct that I have read then there should be no concern to post the good and the bad about taking the drug

    • This is a rather new site, we put it together to save people the time of trying to gather the relevant up to date information as a lot of misinformation was starting to surface to scare people away from NaDCA. There is some good results from the Medicor clinic in Toronto on their site being reported using Avamer in the NaDCA protocal and also people that have used NaDCA and reported the results on the Unfortunately the drug companies and the charities are doing a good job of scaring people.

      Don’t forget NaDCA is not a drug, it is a simple chemical compound. I take half a gram every day for extra energy and to take care of any cancerous cells before they can get started. I have been taking it for almost a year now. Take a look at the other health issues NaDCA has been tested for over the years it just may be that silver bullet for health in many areas.


      • OK. If you are buying this it is beuacse you or a loved one has a horrible cancer and you did the Google thing and are trying to find where you can buy it. I bought it and it was delivered in the container pictured. I have not tried it yet. My wife has Anaplastic Astrocytoma. That is a very bad brain cancer. Not the worst (Glioblastoma is the worst) but close. She gets treatment at UCSF which so far has consisted of Surgical Resection followed by Temodar and Radiation. Now she is disease free and her scans for the past year have been stable. But with this disease it is not a matter of if but when . So, my concerns are: 1. Is there really any Dichloroacetate in the bottle. I mean they are totally unregulated so they could put any white powder in the container and call it Dichloroacetate. 2. Does the stuff work. Does it actually shrink or kill the tumor. 3. Is is safe. So I will be watching this closely and update this post if I get any new information.

        • Thanks for your post, all the answers to your questions are on the home page. You will notice the small clinical trial was on Glioblastoma and the results were that DCA was active in all cases for tumor reduction, hoping you will spend some time on the home page to answer your questions. If you have any questions that you don’t find answers to please leave another post and we will try to answer them.

  • Mr. C. Wojnowski

    I am looking for a source of DCA sold in Canada perhaps under a different name US orders are too costly on a monthly basis.

  • I am looking to purchase DCA I would like an email address or an address would be great.
    I have stage iv lung cancer and bone lesions . Is this product good for both of these fungus ?


    • Hi Dan,

      We’ve always ordered from and have been highly satisfied with their product. Please take a look at the Avemar link above for more detailed information. You have our wishes for a speedy recovery.
