Dynamic flavonoid duo just made your cancer fight a whole lot easier
Most cancer patients will tell you they don’t know what’s worse — battling the disease or the treatments.
When we’re not disfiguring these folks with barbaric surgeries, we’re poisoning them with toxic chemotherapy and radiation.
But imagine a day when we’re fighting cancer with something as harmless as a crisp, fresh apple — or a handful of grapes.
And I’m not talking about the future. These treatments are available right now for just pennies a dose.
Quercetin and resveratrol — two natural compounds found in apples, grapes, and other fruits and vegetables — continue to blow scientists away with their cancer-fighting powers.
In a new study out of Oregon State University, a combination of quercetin and resveratrol made the chemo drug Adriamycin less toxic to patients’ hearts and helped it fight cancer more effectively.
And if you know anything about Adriamycin — which is so poisonous for your body it’s been nicknamed the “red devil” — you know the less of this stuff you need, the better.
But, of course, quercetin and resveratrol have proven they can help prevent — and even fight — cancer all on their own. They’re both flavonoids, which give plants their bright colors. And all flavonoids have natural anti-cancer abilities.
Quercetin and resveratrol are both powerful antioxidants and help control inflammation. And a review just this year of dozens of studies found that quercetin is especially effective at battling prostate cancer.
You see, cancer cells need to communicate with each other to divide and spread, but quercetin basically cuts the phone lines. This causes the cells to die through a process called apoptosis.
I’ve been using quercetin with my own patients for years with fantastic results.
You can find quercetin and resveratrol supplements online or at just about any health store.
