Cancer is a word that scares everyone who hears it.  Luckily, Mother Nature has given us natural medicines to help combat and prevent this ugly beast.  Most don’t know berries are potent with the cancer stopping compound, ellagic acid.  Never heard of it you say, read on to find out just how it works.

Ellagic acid detoxifies carcinogens and stimulates the activity of enzymes that fight cancer growth.  This duel action makes it that much more effective at blocking cancer when it tries to wreak havoc on your body.  Berries also contain flavonoids, tannins, phenolic acid, and lignans that help keep you cancer free.

A Georgia University study found that phenolic acid found in blueberries limit cancer cells’ ability to multiply and trigger then to die.  Another study at Louisiana State University found that gallic acid, also found in berries, actually help to starve the growth of cancer cells.

 

Who would think by including strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, and raspberries in your diet that you would be preventing cancer.  The best part is there are no harsh side effects like there are in prescription drugs and these delicious berries also prevent heart disease and high cholesterol as well.
