Black Cumin Seed- Nigella Sativa comes from a flowering plant found in Asia. It has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries, as far back as the 5th century BC, and was even found in the tomb of one of the Pharaohs of Egypt. It is a strong anti-oxidant, produces apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells, increases circulation, and is used in treatment for cancer, diabetes, heart disease, epilepsy, allergies, colitis, and numerous other ailments. It boosts the immune system and bone marrow. They are also a good source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids. The health benefits of Black Seed and Black Seed Oil are extraordinary. Works in synergy with Honey.
Indian Long Pepper Fruit- Piper Longum has also been used for centuries, and its use dates back to the 5th century BC. This hardened unripe pepper has proven to be a strong anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial agent. It has shown activity against parasitic infections, protects against the effects of radiation, and induces apoptosis in many different cancer cells. It has been proven to be effective against prostate, breast, ovarian, and colon cancers, as well as melanoma, lymphoma, leukemia and glioma tumors. There's so much punch packed in this small fruit. Works in synergy with Curcumin (listed below).
Mangosteen- Garcinia Mangostana is a strong anti-oxidant. Many studies have shown this fruit's anti-cancer effect on breast, prostate, bladder, pacreatic, colon, melanoma, and colorectal cancers. There are more than 50 xanthones found in the pericarp of this fruit, with many found to be beneficial in fighting cancer, reducing tumor growth and preventing metastasis. Mangosteen also works as an anti-inflammatory, and its effect on insulin production has been found to be therapeutic to those with diabetes or obesity. Controlling glucose levels plays a key role in weight management and cancer prevention. Works in synergy with Curcumin.
Dandelion Root Yes, I mean the root of that inconsequential little weed growing in your yard. This little plant is packed full of nutrients and cancer fighting properties. Numerous studies have now shown the great benefit of these little plants. They have proven to be a strong anti-oxidant, inducing apoptosis in cancer cells in pancreatic cancer, leukemia, breast cancer, prostate cancer and even drug-resistant melanoma. The root of the Dandelion contains high concentrations of Vitamin A as well as other important vitamins, and acts as a diuretic, cleansing the kidneys and liver. Other evidence has also shown that this little plant can also positively affect insulin secretion.
Bitter Melon- Momordica Charantia is a bitter vegetable native to Asia and is used in Asian cooking. It has been used in Indian medicine to treat diabetes by inhibiting glucose transport throughout the body. It has the ability to cause apoptosis, or cell death, in cancer cells. Bitter Melon has proven to be effective against breast, lung, prostate, bladder, colon, liver, lymphoma, neuroblastoma, leukemia and other cancers. In regard to breast cancer, one study in particular showed very promising results. When breast cancer cells were exposed to Bitter Melon's extract, 80% of the cancer cells died within 48 hours, and none of the normal cells were affected.
