The Life-Saving Properties of Garlic Revealed

How Garlic Can Save Your Life

Research on garlic indicates that it may provide an ideal low-cost and safe alternative to drugs and vaccines in reducing the three most common causes of death in the world.

In a world mesmerized by the false promises of pharmaceutical industry marketing copy, as well as inundated with aggressively marketed dietary supplements, many of which are manufactured by the same companies making a killing off patented chemicals (Bayer owns One A Day, Pfizer owns Centrum), it is reassuring to know that the kitchen pantry will never fail us…

Inexpensive, time-tested, safe and delicious, many spices are attaining recognition for being, quite literally, ‘life saving,’ which is likely one reason why, in ancient times, many were worth their weight in gold.

This time around, the health benefits of ancient ‘folk remedies’ like garlic are being confirmed by straight-laced men and women in lab coats. Which, when it comes to the conventional medical establishment, blighted as it is by the epistemological disease known as myopia, is considered the only valid way to ascertain the truth. Never mind the countless millions of people who, since the beginning of time, have used a different standard of proof: if it works and it is safe, then its true.

We all know that garlic is not shy to make its presence known. The smallest culinary dose is enough to suffuse the entire body with its aroma. Garlic also permeates the research literature: the biomedical database known as MEDLINE, provided by the National Library of Medicine, contains over 5500 study abstracts on garlic, a number of which we have indexed and organized for your use on our site: Health Benefits of Garlic.

Prevent Breast Cancer With These Four Foods

The U.S. spends billions of dollars every year on cancer research, with breast cancer receiving the lion’s share of the funding. In fact, according to the National Cancer Institute, funding for breast cancer research in 2012 reached a staggering $602 million—twice as much as that allocated for lung cancer research.1

While some research on prevention measures exists, many of the studies on breast cancer focus on genetics, diagnosis and treatment—including novel drug/chemotherapy regimens, stem cell therapy and antibody and nanotechnology treatments.

However, doesn’t it make sense to do everything in your power to protect yourself from getting a horrible disease like cancer? Prevention is a whole lot easier than grueling treatments after diagnosis.

Fortunately, you don’t have to look far to find some of the best breast cancer preventives. In fact, most are probably already in your kitchen.

10 of The Most Functional Foods In The World Which Destroy Cancer Cells

Many specific proteins, enzymes and coding within our immune system may be activated to kill cancer cells. There is no such thing as a cancer cell that cannot be defeated by the human immune system. The difference between cancers that grow and those that don’t are what we put in our bodies to prohibit their growth. Proteins can be rendered ineffective if cells experience uncontrolled growth though damage or mutations to DNA or if toxins through food and chemical pollution override the immune system’s natural function. Here are 10 functional foods which suppresses tumour development during immune surveillance in the human body.

5_foods_tnf2Scientists have found that healthy cells damaged by chemotherapy secreted more of a protein which boosts cancer cell survival. Chemotherapy has been proven to cause cancer cells to interact with nearby tumour cells and cause them to grow, invade, and importantly, resist subsequent therapy. Where conventional medical treatment fails cancer patients, natural foods succeed.

In a study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, scientists identified a molecule, known as TIC10, which activates a protein that helps fight the disease. The protein, called TRAIL (tumour-necrosis-factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand) suppresses tumour development it can actually cross the blood-brain barrier, which separates the main circulatory system from the brain.

9 Herbs and Spices With Proven Health Benefits

9 Herbs and Spices With Proven Health Benefits

Even when our food choices aren’t the best, herbs and spices do more than just improve taste.  They give any meal a nutrition boost.  And according to a new study they may even reverse the damage from an unhealthy meal.

Researchers from Penn State University cooked up coconut chicken, cheese bread and a dessert biscuit for six men. The subjects were aged 30 to 65 and overweight but otherwise healthy.  On one day the meal was served plain.  On another day researchers added two tablespoons of a blend of nine herbs and spices to the meal.

After each meal the researchers drew blood from the subjects every 30 minutes for four hours.  They found that antioxidant activity in the blood increased 13% after the spicy meal compared to the plain meal.

The spices and herbs also decreased post-meal insulin levels by 21% and triglyceride levels in the blood by as much as 31%.  That in turn could reduce heart disease risk.

7 Ways To Prevent and Even Reverse Heart Disease With Nutrition

7 Ways To Prevent and Even Reverse Heart Disease With Nutrition

You can reverse heart disease with nutrition, according to a growing body of scientific research.

Considering that heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the developed world, anything that can prevent cardiac mortality, or slow or even reverse the cardiovascular disease process, should be of great interest to the general public.

Sadly, millions of folks are unaware of the extensive body of biomedical literature that exists supporting the use of natural compounds for preventing and even reversing heart disease.

Instead, they spend billions buying highly toxic cholesterol-lowering pharmaceuticals with known cardiotoxicity, among 300 other proven side effects, simply because their doctor told them to do so.

So, with this in mind, let’s look at the biomedical literature itself.

Garlic Extract Prevents Colorectal Cancer

 

Recently published research reveals that garlic extract can help protect against colorectal cancer, the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S., and the third leading cause of cancer death. In 2014 alone, an estimated 137,000 people were diagnosed.

Using rats induced to develop colorectal cancer, researchers aimed to see what, if any, influence aged garlic extract (AGE) had on the growth of malignant cells.

The researchers noted that AGE decreased the number of aberrant crypt foci—abnormal glands in the lining of the colon and rectum. These irregular clusters of cells are the precursors to polyps, and often the first sign of the potential development of cancer. AGE also suppressed the division and spread of cancerous cells.

The researchers concluded, “These findings suggest that AGE has an antitumor effect through suppression of cell proliferation.”

Reduce high blood pressure with garlic

high blood pressure4Garlic can be used to reduce blood pressure levels in people with uncontrolled hypertension, even if they are already being unsuccessfully treated with medication, according to an Austrialian trial. Although garlic is known for a range of health benefits, this is one of the first conclusive studies into its cardiovascular benefits.

What does the study show?

The trial, which was undertaken by the University of Adelaide, involved 50 patients, all of whom were being treated for hypertension, but who still had high blood pressure despite their medication. The volunteers were divided into two groups. The first group was given four capsules of aged garlic every day for 12 weeks. The second group was given a placebo instead.

The results of the trial, which were published in the scientific journal Maturitas, showed that the systolic blood pressure of the group who took the garlic capsules was around 10mmHg lower than the group that took the placebo. (more…)

Garlic Cures 100% of Warts In Clincal Study

In the first study of its kind, this common herb was found to have remarkable healing results for common warts and corns.

A clinical study published in the International Journal of Dermatology, titled “Healing effect of garlic extract on warts and corns,” reveals the amazing healing properties of garlic extract in healing common warts and corns.

Warts are caused by the virus human papilloma virus (HPV), and corns by pressure of friction. They are some of the most common conditions found in dermatological practice today.
