Ordinary Berry KILLS Cancer

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

It’s no secret that strawberries are good for you.

These tasty little fruits are loaded with vitamins, nutrients and disease-fighting compounds.

In fact, strawberries are so powerful studies have shown that just a handful of them a day can help shield you from heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

But the good new doesn’t stop there…

Because an international team of researchers have found that strawberries might be the cancer breakthrough we’ve all been looking for.

Even better, you don’t have to eat a truckload of them to fight cancer.

In this most recent lab study, published in Scientific Reports, scientists tested strawberry extract against highly aggressive breast cancer cells.

The extract killed cancer cells and made it nearly impossible for them to survive. Better still, it also eliminated the cells’ ability to multiply and move to other parts of the body.

Pretty impressive for a tiny berry.

Next, the scientists split a group of female mice with breast cancer in two. One group got a standard diet, and the other got a diet enriched with 15% strawberry extract.

And what they found next was astonishing…

After just five weeks, the strawberry group’s tumors were significantly smaller!

Even better, the cancer never spread to the healthy tissue next to the tumors.

Experts believe strawberries are so powerful against cancer and other diseases because they’re rich in antioxidants that can help to block the biological processes that fuel tumor growth.

Making 15 percent of your daily diet strawberries is a bit of a challenge (that would be about a whole pint). But the good news is that you can just supplement with anthocyanins — the flavonoids responsible for some of strawberries’ amazing disease-fighting powers.

Anthocyanins supplements are made from strawberries and other fruits. Click here to see a selection of them from Pipingrock.com.

Live well,
