Stop Killer Cancer Cells COLD with Plant Power

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Most folks are shocked to learn the world’s second most common type of cancer is lung cancer.

Last year, 1.8 million people died from this devastating disease.

Even though the number of people who smoke these days has dramatically decreased, a lot of folks still light up. Besides, smoking isn’t the only source of lung cancer. Toxic work exposure and air pollution are other top causes.

Lung cancer is notoriously hard to treat. Even worse? Chemo and radiation are typically a bust.

In fact, only about half the people diagnosed with lung cancer live another year. And within five years, only seven percent of those diagnosed with this disease are still alive.

Luckily, nature is here to lend us a hand with a powerful plant compound most folks have never even heard of.

I’m talking about a substance called berberine.

Berberine is a naturally occurring plant compound. It’s found in many plants, including goldenseal, Oregon grape, barberry, and tree turmeric. And it’s no mere coincidence that these same plants have been used medicinally for thousands of years (mostly for boosting the immune system).

A new study published in the journal Pharmaceutics confirms that berberine effectively stops the growth of lung cancer cells in the lab. We still have a lot to learn, but what we know so far is exciting.

The researchers are still trying to figure out exactly how berberine performs this incredible trick. But they suspect the compound may trigger a drop in inflammation and oxidation.

Berberine is already a superstar extract with an impressive resume. The compound is credited with…

  • strengthening heart beats
  • reducing belly fat
  • lowering blood sugar and cholesterol
  • supporting good digestion

Berberine has even been used successfully for years to fight chronic urinary tract infections.

You can raise your own berberine levels by supplementing with herbs such as goldenseal and Oregon grape. But it’s tough to get enough of the compound that way to be effective.

Instead, I suggest taking a concentrated version of berberine to get the most potential benefits.

PS: Diagnosed with lung cancer? Tip the odds even FURTHER in your favor with this spicy secret hiding out in your kitchen.
