Dear people, have you ever heard the latest news? So, yes, one recent study has revealed that there are seven types of foods and drinks that can help you stop the cancer and tumor growth, and help the body in killing the cancer cells. Some of the experts sais that these seven foods and drinks have powerful anti-carcinogenic properties. Please take a look at the article below and find out more about this.
These mentioned foods and drinks include: blueberries, curry, red wine, tomatoes, green tea and black chocolate. Many of the scientists and some medical experts have noted that these foods are even more effective than the conventional chemotherapy treatment. How this works is as follows – in accordance to the experts, these kinds of foods can actually stop the blood supply to the tumor cells, property which is known anti-angiogenesis. They as well say that this type of process involves the creation of new blood vessels in the human body. You shall as well know that the angiogenesis process is enhanced in some periods of our lives, especially in newborns. While at adults, this process actually activates in case of wound when tissues and capillaries need to be regenerated and refreshed. The angiogenesis process is most often regulated by activator and inhibitor molecules, and usually inhibitors predominate.
So, what will happen next? When it happens that there are carcinogenic cells in the human body, they stimulate the activators to increase the vascular growth. This will in turn result in the production of new blood vessels and the cancer cells release their activators of angiogenesis. These are actually the molecules that can “trick” the human body and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels that supply the tumor to nutrients and oxygen.
Tomatoes – study confirms: one study has discovered that people who consumed tomato juice more than 5 times a month have significantly reduced their risk of prostate cancer by almost 50%. It is quite amazing, right? Well, of course. How this works is as follows – in accordance to the experts, the tomatoes are loaded with the compound lycopene, which has strong anti-angiogenic properties. The lycopene is a fat-soluble compound and this is why it requires proper absorption through the digestive tract. And, as last mentioned – the Vitamin C content in tomatoes is significantly increased when tomatoes are exposed to high temperatures or cooked with oil.
Curry – the spice from curry is quite loaded with turmeric powder. This one speeds up the fat-burning process and improves the health in general. You shall definitely add some turmeric to your meals every day!
Red wine – As first, you shall be aware that the grape is loaded with resveratrol (a natural compound that has powerful anti-oxidant properties and it can reduce the risk of cancer). There exist some medical studies have found that this powerful compound can inhibit cancer growth, kill bacteria, improves heart function, improves physical and mental function and concentration, improves the energy production of human cells, viruses and fungi, increases glucose tolerance to diabetes, increases lifespan in animals, it eliminates the dangerous and harmful free radicals, repairs the damaged DNA. It can as well prevent the cell damage caused by nuclear radiation.
You are going to be amazed when we tell you that just one glass of red wine (225 ml) contains about 640 mcg of resveratrol. Resveratrol supplements are quite often in combination with extracts from grape or other natural antioxidants. They are most of the times taken in doses of 200 – 600 mcg per day.
Blueberries – these are full of many healthy nutrients and contain high amounts of phytochemicals, which can protect from many different types of cancer. The blueberries are as well able to reduce the oxidative stress and stop angiogenesis. These are very useful in protecting and fighting against ovarian cancer.
