Superfood Runs CIRCLES Around Cancer Drug!
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you’re trying to fight cancer after tumors are growing and spreading, you’re already behind the 8-ball.
The mainstream will try to burn, poison, or cut the cancer out of you… even if they have to wreck your health in the process.
No, the best time to kill cancer is early on, before it has the opportunity to become aggressive.
Fortunately, Penn State researchers have just discovered two compounds that can help you fight cancer at its source – stem cells
And the best part? These miracle compounds just ran circles around one of the most hyped cancer drugs around.
It’s no secret that red grapes are a superfood that benefit everything from your heart to your brain.
But now it looks like they can kill cancer, too.
You see, red grapes contain two antioxidants called resveratrol and grape seed extract.
Because of this, researchers were curious to see if resveratrol and grape seed extract had an effect on tough-to-kill colon cancer stem cells, which fuel tumor growth and the spread of the disease.
For the study, mice with colon cancer tumors were split into three groups. One was a control, one was fed resveratrol and grape seed extract, and one was fed sulindac, a cancer drug.
You may have heard a bit about sulindac recently. It’s a pain med that’s being touted by Big Pharma for its ability to kill cancer cells.
Well, at the end of the trial, the researchers found that the grape compounds suppressed tumors by a whopping 50 percent.
Even better? They worked just as well as the sulindac but without any side effects.
Another win for Mother Nature… another loss for Big Pharma.
This means a resveratrol and grape seed extract could be the next drug-free breakthrough in cancer treatment.
Researchers report that the combination of the grape compounds makes the biggest impact on cancer stem cells. The results weren’t nearly as impressive for resveratrol or grape seed extract alone.
Experts believe these two special substances work so well together because they can neutralize free radicals and stop inflammation — two of the key drivers behind cancer.
You can get more resveratrol and grape seed extract by eating red seeded grapes.
Additionally, they are available as a combined supplement at vitacost.com.
