Researchers from the University of Colorado Cancer Center found that grape extract is more powerful than chemo when it comes to destroying abnormal cancer cells. Moreover, the extract is more efficient in aggressive cancers.
Grape seed extract kills off abnormal cells while leaving normal cells unaffected. This is why it is much better than conventional treatments that inhibit cancer growth by killing all cells. The journal Cancer Letters reports that the extract does miracles for cancer patients.
Molly Derry, a doctoral candidate in the laboratory of Rajesh Agarwal, PhD and successful investigator at the CU Cancer Center, explains that patients diagnosed with aggressive stage IV cancer receive higher doses of chemo drugs, but that does not apply to grape seed extract. The very same patients would receive a lot lower doses of the extract.
“It required less than half the concentration of GSE to suppress cell growth and kill 50 percent of stage IV cells than it did to achieve similar results in the stage II cells.”
“We’ve known for quite a while that the bioactive compounds in grape seed extract selectively target many types of cancer cells. This study shows that many of the same mutations that allow colorectal cancer cells to metastasize and survive traditional therapies make them especially sensitive to treatment with GSE,”Derry added.
Americans first tasted grapes over 300 years ago, and today over 8,000 grape varieties grow throughout the world. A cup of grapes provides healthy amount of vitamins C and K, including a significant amount of antioxidants as well.
Grape seed extract works well in cases of swelling and bruises that appear as a result of an injury, age-related loss of vision, high cholesterol levels, poor circulation, and even diabetes. Recent research has shown that grape seed extract is super-efficient in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and leukemia.
Other related studies have shown that berries are effective against colorectal cancer and other cancer types. A particular study showed that black raspberries reduced the growth of new tumors by 45%, and the total number of tumors was cut down by 60%.
Many similar studies showed that foods packed with flavonoids, such as apples, grapes, and berries, significantly reduce the risk of colon cancer.
Grape seed extract and advancer cancer
Grape seed extract is rich in bioactive compounds, and it targets and destroys numerous cancer types.
The world is happy to know this, since the number of patients diagnosed with colon cancer increases uncontrollably. Unfortunately, this type of cancer is usually detected in its advanced stages. But, findings like this are more than welcome, because now even the worst cases can use the help of the extract.
