Kill Cancer for 3 Cents a Day?!?
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Few things are as scary as being diagnosed with cancer.
Except for maybe the treatments that follow — painful surgeries and sickening chemo that can take your health and your bank account straight to rock bottom.
Even worse, these uncomfortable treatments often miss the source of your cancer — the stem cells that fuel the disease.
But it looks like this may all be about to change.
According to some U.K. researchers, a cheap, abundant nutrient could be the cancer stem cell killer science has been searching for.
And the best part — you can take it for just 3 cents a day without devastating side effects.
This cancer fighter is vitamin C.
And you may already be taking it for everything from an immune boost to anti-aging support.
Recently, researchers from the University of Salford discovered there’s one more important reason to take it — vitamin C can kill tough cancer stem cells.
In a laboratory, researchers tested experimental drugs and natural substances, including vitamin C, on cancer stem cells.
After examining the results, the scientists were absolutely dumbfounded…
The vitamin C was 10 times more effective at preventing the formation of cancer stem cells than an experimental new drug Big Pharma is raving about.
That’s right — vitamin C ran circles around the best that the drug companies had to offer.
Tricky stem cells are thought to be the root cause of chemotherapy resistance, which can lead to failing treatments and even trigger the regeneration of tumor cells.
This means that by simply taking vitamin C, you may be able stop cancer at its source!
Researchers believe vitamin C is so effective because it prevents the breakdown of sugar in the mitochondria, or “powerhouses,” of the cell, which use those sugars to fuel cancer growth.
Additionally, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can fight free radicals and oxidative stress — two key drivers of cancer.
Foods rich in vitamin C include citrus, red peppers and leafy greens.
But if you’re not getting enough of these foods in your diet, you can take a vitamin C supplement. You can pick one up at your local pharmacy for about 3 cents a dose.
Imagine that… you can shut off the cancer valve for just pennies a day without terrifying treatments or long-lasting side effects — something you’ll never hear about from the mainstream.
