Anti-inflammatory compounds might hold the key to preventing cancer. Of course, eating a plant-based diet, regular exercise, managing stress through daily meditation have all shown to significantly improve health as well.
HOW TURMERIC FIGHTS CANCER
Turmeric is a spice with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It actually contains one of the world’s most powerful non-pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory compounds.
A large number of laboratory studies on cancer cells have shown that curcumin has proven chemopreventive effects. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent them from growing.
It has the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer cells. It’s also been proven effective against colon, prostate, ovarian, and brain cancer.
Piperine, the active compound in black pepper, can increase curcumin absorption in both rats and humans with no adverse effects . It’s been said to increase effectiveness of turmeric by as much as 2000%!
Coconut oil makes a great sidekick to turmeric because curcumin is fat-soluble. This means it needs to be dissolved in fat to make it into the intestine, where it is absorbed into the bloodstream. Coconut oil also full of antioxidants and substantial amounts of other compounds deemed to be anticancer agents (e.g. squalene and terpenoids).
HOW GINGER FIGHTS CANCER
Ginger is becoming growingly popular due to its powerful anti-cancer effects. Namely, ginger contains several active compounds, such as gingerols, paradols, and shagaols, which have effective anticancer activity.
This was proven by a scientific study published in the Food and Chemical Technology Journal.
These findings have been asserted once more by many other studies, which have used this initial research to highlight the activity of this beneficial root in the destruction of cancer cells in the treatment of colorectal, ovarian, and prostate cancer.
Furthermore, experts claim that ginger is even more effective than chemotherapy.
Moreover, researchers from the University of Michigan have highlighted clinical trials to the ACA (American Cancer Association) which show the efficacy of ginger in the destruction of cancer cells.
Also, in this case, ovarian cancer cells are not able to become resistant to the effects of these compounds, unlike in the case of chemotherapy. Ginger is not toxic, causes no side-effects, and cannot trigger drug resistance, so it is more effective than conventional chemotherapy therapy.
- ½ teaspoon organic turmeric root powder
- ½ teaspoon organic coconut oil
- ½ teaspoon organic ginger root powder
- 1 pinch of black pepper
Personally, I put them in vegetarian capsules and swallow for on-the-go convenience. However, you can add the mixture into your favorite soup, salad or dish. Take this 2-3 times a day with meals and ever be afraid of cancer again!
