These 3 Foods Starve Prostate Cancer

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

We’ve all heard the old adage “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

But it turns out that apples can do a whole lot more than that — they may keep cancer away, too.

According to some brand new research from the University of Texas, apples and a two other common foods are part of a “superfood trio” that can help kill prostate cancer.

They could even help stop prostate cancer before it starts.

For the study, researchers tested over 140 naturally occurring food compounds on mice and human prostate cancer cells, searching for which compounds could stop prostate cancer growth.

After tedious testing, the researchers were able to pinpoint three foods that stopped prostate cancer in its tracks:

  1. Apples: More specifically, apple peels, which contain a potent antioxidant called ursolic acid. This special compound can help stop cancer cell growth and induces cancer cell death
  1. Turmeric: This curry spice contains curcumin, a powerhouse pigment that reduces inflammation and fights free radicals — two of the key drivers of all disease, including cancer
  1. Red Grapes: The skin of red grapes contain resveratrol, a strong antioxidant that stomps out inflammation and other processes that can cause cancer.

This means that eating any of these tasty foods can help you nip prostate cancer in the bud by fighting the processes that cause it.

But the good news doesn’t end there…

The researchers found that when combinations of these three compounds were used together, their cancer-fighting powers increased.

In fact, combining ursolic acid with curcumin or resveratrol blocks the cancer cells from gobbling up glutamine, a nutrient they need to grow. This process essentially starves cancer cells to death before they have a chance to multiply.

While this study focused on prostate cancer, it would make sense that eating these inflammation-fighting foods alone or together could help you ward off a multitude of diseases.

Try mixing the grapes with apple slices and sprinkling the fruits with turmeric for a tasty, cancer-fighting treat.

Live well,
