Ordinary Herbs Blast Breast Cancer

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Breast cancer treatment can be one of the worst experiences of your life.

First, there are the tests and biopsies. Then the sickening cancer drugs and surgeries wipe you out physically and emotionally.

But these painful and often life-altering treatments could be on their way out.

You see, new research shows that a natural compound could be the breast cancer breakthrough that leads to less toxic and invasive treatments.

And the best part — it could already be on your spice rack.

I’m talking about common herbs like thyme, parsley, basil and peppermint.

And they could be the most important herbs in your recipes, because they contain a unique compound called luteolin that destroys tough breast cancer cells.

In a recent study, scientists tested luteolin on triple-negative breast cancer cells. This type of breast cancer is particularly deadly, is hard to treat and can quickly spread to other organs.

Researchers grew human triple-negative breast cancer cells in mice and then exposed the cells to luteolin.

And to their amazement… this powerful compound significantly reduced the growth of cancer cells and even helped stop the cells from spreading to other parts of the body.

Even better, luteolin is completely non-toxic and safe (you can’t say that about most mainstream cancer treatments).

Additionally, other studies have shown luteolin is a powerful antioxidant that can reduce toxic oxidative stress and inflammation — two key drivers of all disease and aging.

This means adding thyme, parsley, peppermint and basil to your favorite dishes could help you fight cancer and ward off the deadly effects of inflammation.

Herbs not your thing?

No problem.

Luteolin is found in veggies like celery, broccoli, peppers and spinach. It’s also available in supplement form from online retailers like Amazon.com.

Live well,
