An important new study reveals both the abject failure of conventional radiation treatment for cancer, and the very real possibility that blueberries contain a curative compound far more effective than anything modern cancer specialists have available to them to strike at the very root of cancer malignancy.

The fire of inflammation needs to be stopped.
As a review, you learned how inflammation may destroy cells in YOUR body.
You have also learned that sometimes you have NO IDEA that your cells are inflamed.
Now you know inflammation needs to be stopped DEAD in its tracks, before there is any more damage to cells in your body.
But it is easier said than done! (more…)
Previous studies already demonstrated that the anti-inflammatory and pro-apoptotic properties of pterostilbene are responsible for the inhibition of chemical-induced colon carcinogenesis. Chiou and co-workers at the National Kaohsiung Marine University, Taiwan, were the first to demonstrate that pterostilbene also acts as anti-cancer phytochemical by inducing NF-E2-related factor 2 . The researchers injected male mice with azoxymethane and fed them with resveratrol or pterostilbene and found that pterostilbene was more effective than resveratrol in reducing azoxymethane-induced formation of aberrant crypt foci, lymphoid nodules and tumors. Both phytochemicals also increased the formation of antioxidant enzymes such as heme oxygenase-1 and glutathione reductase. (more…)
Remarkable Resveratrol Relative
Resveratrol, an antioxidant found in grapes, wine, peanuts, some berries and Giant Knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum), has emerged as one of the most potent natural substances to promote optimal health. Yet, the newest research is focusing on a highly bioavailable derivative of resveratrol known as pterostilbene (pronounced tare-oh-still-bean), which has powerful health-promoting properties similar to its parent compound.

Pterostilbene, like its cousin resveratrol, is gaining world-wide attention for its rather dramatic ability to improve human health, protect against the diseases of aging, and extend lifespan1.
Pterostilbene is found in small amounts in blueberries and grapes, but the most cost effective source is from the bark and heartwood of a tree that grows in India and Sri Lanka (Pterocarpus marsupium or Indian Kino Tree). (more…)
Pterostilbene is garnering much attention as a powerful nutrient found naturally in the skin of many berries and fruit varieties. According to research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the compound is more potent than its close cousin, resveratrol, in preventing the development of colon cancer. Researchers found that pterostilbene was highly effective at increasing the expression of genes responsible for the generation of powerful protective antioxidant enzymes. The nutrient can be obtained by eating a diet largely based on raw vegetables and fruits or can be supplemented to dramatically reduce the risk of digestive cancers.
