Herbs and spices can offer far more than delicious flavor. Scientists have found that some foods, including some herbs and spices, contain phytochemicals that can affect our bodies biologically and many herbs have been shown to have powerful anti-cancer properties. Here are 5 herbs that have been found to reduce one’s risk of cancer and might help your fight against cancer.
Rosemary has caffeic acid and rosemarinic acid. They are rich in antioxidants and act as anti-inflammatories. Rosemary also contains carnosol, which makes this herb antitumorigenic. Rosemary has also been found to detoxify substances that can initiate breast cancer.
Oregano contains carvacrol, which can work as a natural disinfectant and may help offset the spread of cancer cells. This herb is often found in classic Italian dishes, such as pizza and pasta.
Also known as Huang Chi, this plant may help fight cancer by stimulating the immune system. Researchers at the University of Texas Medical Center mixed astragalus with the blood of cancer patients and found that the function of cancer-killing cells called T lymphocytes improved by 260 percent.
One study conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer found pepper along with turmeric can inhibit the growth of cancerous stem cells of breast tumors.
Studies have demonstrated that Curcumin as an herb could be used as an addition to cancer treatment. It had a positive effect on suppressing cancer growth and at a molecular level. One of its powerful anti-cancer benefits is its ability to induce apoptosis. It is the programmed cell death of cancer cells without hurting any other healthy cells.
