Ginger is a world-famous plant that is growing more and more popular for its recent discoveries as a powerful anti-cancer agent. It is packed with potent anti-cancer effects, which are in fact active compounds such as paradols, gingerols and shagaols.
The anti-cancer effects of ginger have been proven by a scientific study published in the Food and Chemical Technology Journal. The study has highlighted the activity of the beneficial root in the destruction of colorectal, prostate and ovarian cancer cells.
According to claims from experts, ginger is far more effective at treating cancer than chemotherapy
It Destroys Ovarian Cancer Cells
When it comes to examining the beginning of cancer, angiogenesis could be of great help. If the process of cancer development can be obstructed in the initial stage, chances are it is going to be prevented.
A scientific study published in the Complementary and Alternative Medicine magazine, the compounds of the ginger are able to efficiently inhibit the development of the cancer cells in their initial stage.
These compounds have potent anti-angiogenic effects. As an addition to this, it is also known that ovarian cancer cells aren’t able to become resistant to the effects of the ginger compounds unlike in the case of chemotherapy (where they develop a resistance to the chemo). Ginger isn’t toxic in any way and doesn’t cause any side-effects, doesn’t trigger drug resistance, meaning that it is far more efficient than conventional chemotherapy treatment.
Ginger Destroys Prostate Cancer Cells
According to the findings of a U.S. study published in the Journal of Nutrition, ginger extract can obstruct the growth of prostate cancer cells in both adult men and women, under one condition: that they take 100 mg of it per kilogram of body weight, on daily basis.
The scientists have stated that the extract is capable of reducing the development of prostate cancer in more than half of the patients tested.
This means that consuming 100 grams of fresh ginger on a daily basis (for people weighing 70 kg.) will do the job of reducing and preventing the growth of prostate cancer.
Ginger and Colorectal Cancer
Ginger’s potential as a prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer first surfaced 12 years ago, at the Cancer Prevention Research conference.
Experts noted that even back then, there was sufficient evidence that the ginger root is capable of protecting people from colorectal cancer, and this caused numerous studies and a lot of more researching to be done.
A study was published in the Journal of Nutrition back in 2015. According to the researchers, ginger despite its cancer preventive properties, can also eliminate newly created colorectal cancer cells, meaning that colorectal cancer patients can use ginger as an addition to their current treatment.
In an addition to this, there have also been a lot of studies conducted on the matter how ginger root is capable of treating colorectal, ovarian and prostate cancer.
Ginger is completely natural, healthy and mildly invasive treatment option, compared to chemo. It eliminates the cancer cells, but leaves the healthy cells unaffected. Ginger doesn’t have toxins, and it has only one downside – it isn’t an officially accepted remedy against cancer, as authorities demand more studies and proof.
But the properties of ginger remain without any doubt. Incorporate it into your natural and balanced diet.
Note: It’s optimal dose is 4 grams on daily basis for adults.
WARNING: Pregnant women should take only 1 gram a day.
