Amzing things are being found out about a natural herbal supplement called Zyflamend that could radically change cancer treatments – especially prostate cancer – and save billions of dollars in money spent on medical research and treatment for cancer – if it ever gets to market that is. In a scientific study, researchers added Zyflamend to a culture of human prostate cancer cells.
After only a seventy two hour period of time the Zyflamend-treated cancer cell cultures had a seventy-eight percent reduction in the number of cancer cells compared with untreated cultures in the same test model. It is believed that Zyflamend encouraged apoptosis, or programmed cell death; apparently doubling the activity of a specific protein involved in apoptosis. And even among the remaining cancer cells, reproduction was significantly repressed.
Is this stuff safe for you? Here is what it contains that the FDA is reluctant to approve it for anything. The formula is made up of several herbs used for centuries – each as an anti-inflammatory. Some of the key components are ursolic acid, revservatrol, berberine, phytonutrients, and polyphenols. The ingredients and their primary benefit follow:
Rosemary (contains ursolic acid)
Holy basil (contains ursolic acid; a COX-2 inhibitor)
Turmeric (contains curcumin; a COX-2 inhibitor)
Oregano (contains more than 30 known anti-inflammatory compounds)
Hu zhang (contains reservatrol; a COX-2 inhibiter)
Chinese goldthread and barberry (both contain berberine; a COX-2 inhibitor)
Ginger (inhibits both COX-2 and 5-LO, another enzyme cancer cells need to flourish)
Scutellaria (contains a phytonutrients complex; a COX-2 inhibitor)
Green tea (polyphenols reduce COX-2)
Some precautionary disclosure need to be stated here, so that it not look like I am just way out there when it comes to stating things without doing my ‘due diligence’ so let me say that the product Vioxx was recalled because of the COX-2 inhibitor. It is not certain if the pharma-version of it or the herbal version of it both have issues, but when Martin Milner, ah HSI Medical adviser who holds an N.D. was asked about the risk of gastrointestinal damage with herbal COX-2 inhibitors, he was quoted as saying that the herbal remedy using natural plant compounds was far less likely to cause adverse side affects than the pharma-version, and NO… absolutely NO adverse side affects were reported in studies done on Zyflamend.
