Ginger is one of the most potent natural remedies of numerous different health diseases. However, newest research indicates that this amazing spice may even fight cancer!
Namely, studies have found that ginger can effectively cure cancer and its action is even more powerful than medicines and chemo.
After a long period of studies, researchers were shocked from the results which indicate that cancer medications are ineffective and that they actually speed up the fatality rate in cancer patients. However, ginger has been proven to aim and destroy carcinogenic cells only, thus, it leaves out the healthy cells.
The Georgia State University conducted a study in which they found that whole ginger extract reduced the size of prostate cancer in mice by 56%. Additionally, ginger significantly reduced inflammation and provided the mice with antioxidants.
Ginger contains an active compound known as 6-shogaol which is more effective than conventional cancer medications and chemotherapy since it directly attacks the breast cancer stem cells, according to a study published in PLoS.
These cells are also known as “mother cells” and they are the cause of a number of cancers. The stem cells create the different “daughter cells” which further develop into a tumor colony. Moreover, cancer stem cells make up only 0.2 to 1% of the tumor cell, but the problem is that they are almost indestructible.
Namely, these cancer cells have the ability to regenerate and are capable of continuous differentiation. Additionally, they can split off and form new tumor colonies which are resistant to conventional chemotherapy. The only way cancer can be cured is by destroying the stem cells.
When it comes to breast cancer, 6-shogaol has influence on the cell cycle and it kills the cancer cells, preventing formation of cancer lumps in the breasts.
Experts suggest that there is a need for further research on the conventional cancer treatments, in order to prove that the natural remedies may provide far more effective results, and cure cancer, while not harming the health of the patient.
