Recently, seven natural ingredients were put in the spotlight for their ability to successfully eliminate cancer. Besides their amazing ability, they also taste good, and are a favorite around the world. We have all tried black chocolate, red wine, blueberries, tomatoes, turmeric, green tea and curry, and we know how delicious they are. Now it turns out that they are even more effective in treating cancer than chemotherapy!
What’s the secret?
During its creation, the body undergoes a process called angiogenesis, when all the blood vessels are created. This activity continues during out lifetime, creating new blood vessels after injuries that have cut our skin, veins or arteries. Angiogenesis is also associated with cancer spread, orchestrated by activators and inhibitors. Although most studies focus on the inhibitors, it’s actually the activators that promote cell growth and the creation of new blood vessels.
These seven ingredients stop the cancer growth by affecting the way a tumor feeds in order to live. The ingredients stop the angiogenesis process in tumors, cutting out the food and blood supply, and effectively killing of the cancer.
A cancer grows by getting oxygen and nutrients through our blood. One of the main reasons for their fast growth is cancer’s ability to continuously release angiogenesis activators, tricking the body into creating new blood vessels which help it survive. That’s why cancer medicines are almost always inhibitors that try to counteract the activators and stop the process of angiogenesis, directly affecting cancer growth.
Here’s how the seven natural anti-angiogenesis ingredients work:
The red wine contains resveratrol, a strong antioxidant that can be found in the skin of grapes. It has been praised for its efficiency by many nutritionists and health experts. Resveratrol can successfully reduce the risk of various diseases and slow down the aging process. It can also improve the glucose tolerance, energy production and mental aptitude, eliminate free radicals, viruses and bacteria, reduce the effects of radiation and repair the DNA.
225 ml. of wine contain up to 640 mg. of Resveratrol. The quantity is determined by the quality of wine – better quality means higher concentrations. If you don’t like wine, Resveratrol supplements are easily available, and you can combine them with grapes for an even stronger effect.
According to a Harvard research, people who eat tomatoes regularly can reduce the chances of developing prostate cancer by 50%. The research showed that tomatoes are highly successful in stopping the angiogenesis thanks to lycopene, a substance that has strong anti-angiogenesis effects.
Lycopene is fat-soluble, so it’s easily distributed through the body. Its concentration increases when it’s subjected to higher temperatures, making cooked tomatoes extremely effective in stopping cancer growth. The same applies for curry.
Blueberries and raspberries
These two berries are known for their anti-cancer properties, and this especially refers to ovarian cancer. They contain phytochemicals which can prevent cancer and are also responsible for their color. Blueberries and raspberries can reduce the oxidative stress and stop the process of angiogenesis.
Too good to be true! Eating dark chocolate can be great for the cardiovascular health, mood and can even stop cancer!
Coffee and green tea
Both these popular drinks can considerably reduce the risk of cancer.
Apart from its numerous health benefits, turmeric can reduce fat and be used to prevent cancer.
