Antioxidants for Cancer: Free Radicals Promote Cancer By Damaging DNA...
Free Radical Scavengers Protect Cells From this Damage
Antioxidants for Cancer - Grape seeds are high in antioxidants
When talking about using antioxidants for cancer, here are a few things you should know. One of the causes of cancer is excessive free radical damage in your cells that harms your DNA and results in some cells mutating into cancerous cells. Antioxidants get rid of free radicals. Every chemical and toxin in you body causes free radical damage. The carcinogenic ones cause even more. Combined with high acidity and low oxygenation, you've got a prescription for cancer.
Another reason we have too much free radical damage and too much cancer is that processed foods generate more free radicals than whole foods, and have fewer nutrients to act as free radical scavengers to help protect you from those free radicals. On top of this, you are exposed to 70,000 chemicals -- 20,000 of which are known cancer-causing agents. These all cause free radical damage too, and help to cause cancer in yet another way.
Free radical damage from toxins plays such a fundamental role in the development of cancer, it is no wonder some of the first supplements people think of taking for fighting cancer are free radical scavenging vitamins. Unfortunately, most of them are just okay at best.
Energetic testing comes in at 43 for high dose Vitamin C as an antioxidant for cancer. Super high doses where you take as much as bowel tolerance allows come in a bit better at 64. A course of intravenous vitamin C sessions at much higher doses does better, 245. Good, but not near as good as many of the supplements covered in this report. By the way, another popular vitamin treatment for cancer vitamin B17 or Laetrile energetically tests very close to this, at 247, when used in the correct dosages. Eating optimal amounts of apricot pits comes in at 127.
When used in therapeutic doses, Vitamin E energetically tests at 30 for its value as an antioxidant for cancer fighting. Vitamin A - 40. The commonly sold grape seed extract is around 40 also. Alpha Lipoic Acid - 60. Resveratrol - 120. Selenium, which acts both as a free radical scavenger, and as a mineral that helps prevent cells from turning cancerous is considerably stronger at 200. Many of these vitamins are in Ellagic Formula with Graviola covered in the immune supplements.
There is a well known cancer supplement whose claim to fame is its high value of antioxidants for cancer fighting. Again unfortunately, energetic testing puts Proto... or Can... at a good but not great level of 249. High quality pycnogenol energetically tests much higher, 421. Which is why we've heard reports of it knocking out cancers on its own. A slightly better version is the European sourced Health First Grape Seed Extract. It comes in at 489 when used in high therapeutic doses.
However, the top supplements for fighting cancer works in a different way than antioxidants for cancer and free radical fighting -- even stronger than their sister elixirs BLA and BLA Enhancer -- are elixirs that stop cancer cells from causing free radical damage to nearby friendly cells. They are called...
Research done by Michael Lisanti MD at the Kimmel Cancer Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania found that cancer cells produce and release a lot of hydrogen peroxide, which damage nearby healthy cells in the tissues called fibroblasts. Hydrogen peroxide causes free radical damage which destroys their vital mitochondria enzymes so they can no longer produce energy using oxygen and must switch to using glycolysis or fermentation of sugars to produce energy.
Cells are known to produce hydrogen peroxide, for example, to signal the immune system to heal wounds. However cancer cells keep producing hydrogen peroxide and don't turn off.
When Dr. Lisanti and his team cultured breast cancer cells alongside fibroblasts for five days, they spotted the cancer cells releasing hydrogen peroxide on day 2. By day 5, most free radicals generated by the hydrogen peroxide were found inside the fibroblasts. After that, the team found there was a reduction in mitochondrial activity in those fibroblasts, and an increase in glucose uptake by the fibroblasts – a sign of glycolysis.
While there are several theories as to the reason why cancer cells produce and release this hydrogen peroxide, the simplest explanation is that the cancer cells are using hydrogen peroxide to cause healthy cells to become cancerous. This may be one way that cancer spreads. At the very least, these damaged fibroblasts would be producing more lactic acid so that the micro-environment around cancer cells is more favorable to the development of cancer. Another way to look at it is that cancer cells are seeds that need the correct micro-environment in which to grow. “What we’re now saying is that the hydrogen peroxide is the fertilizer,” says Lisanti.
PrugX was developed to take advantage of this hydrogen peroxide production and release that Dr. Lisanti observed. Just as the energies in BLA are able to tell cancer cells to stop the elimination of lactic acid, the energies in PrugX tell the cancer cells not to release the hydrogen peroxide they produce. This causes the hydrogen peroxide to build up in the cancer cells. And as it builds up, it kills them. PrugX on its own tests as one of the highest rated cancer fighter -- coming in at 12,500. Use 3, 4 or 6 bottles per month.
The fundamental action caused by PrugX is a buildup of free radical oxides in cancer cells which would sooner or later kill those cancer cells unless the cancer cell is able to neutralize this buildup of free radicals by producing antioxidants -- which they are able to do.
In fact research has shown that one reason cancer cells may become resistant to chemotherapy is that they begin to produce more antioxidants. This tends to happen more with cancer cells as they metastasize and become stage 4 cancers. Some types of cancer, like pancreatic cancer, naturally produce more antioxidants which is quite likely the reason that pancreatic cancer is is difficult to defeat.
One possible conclusion of this research is that taking antioxidants is likely to be protective of cancer cells, especially in advanced cancers. Antioxidants, of course, also help protect your normal cells from the chemo toxins.
Traditional thinking is that antioxidants prevent damage to DNA from oxygen radicals and that this is good -- which of course it is in normal cells. But, argues Nobel prize winning geneticist James Watson, we want oxygen radicals in cancer cells because this can cause the cancer cells to die. Taking antioxidants might be preventing cancer drugs from destroying cancer cells. Instead, he recommends patients combine anti-antioxidants with cancer drugs. In other words, take something that destroys antioxidants or prevents their creation.
This is even more important an issue in advanced cancers. Watson writes, “In light of the recent data strongly hinting that much of late-stage cancer’s untreatability may arise from its possession of too many antioxidants, the time has come to seriously ask whether antioxidant use much more likely causes than prevents cancer.”
I am not to saying to refrain from taking antioxidants when you don’t have cancer. These include Beta carotene, Vitamins C, A, E and Selenium. They may indeed be needed for their cancer preventative, anti-aging health promoting capabilities. But when you have an advanced cancer, and especially when you are using a supplement like PrugX that causes free radical oxide damage to cancer cells, it is best to stay away from taking antioxidants.
What is naturally in your diet will not be a problem when using PrugX. Supplements are. Because oral vitamin C is an antioxidant, you should avoid taking it. Intravenous vitamin C therapy is not a problem. It is a pro-oxidant drug that helps produce hydrogen peroxide, which targets neoplastic cells while leaving normal cells unharmed. It is not powerful enough to be able to stop advanced cancers, but will work synergistically with PrugX.
An alternative way to prevent chemotherapy from damaging healthy cells would be to support the liver so that it can get rid of the chemo toxins as it is supposed to do. It is primarily when chemo toxins are not eliminated by the liver and build up in cells that they harm the cells. So strong liver support is very important when chemotherapy is being used.
It is a little more complex than this -- as often liver support supplements contain antioxidants as the primary support mechanisms. A little bit is okay when that supplement has many other anti cancer actions, as Immune Force does.
Liver Balance Plus is a good liver support product to use as it very low in antioxidants.
So... the reason PrugX doesn’t knock out cancer cells quickly and powerfully in all cases is that cancer cells are able to neutralize the buildup of hydrogen peroxide in them -- to the degree that they are able to produce antioxidants. Or to the extent that someone is taking antioxidants as these would be helping the cancer cells neutralize the free radical oxides Prugx causes.
Enter PrugX Enhancer. This frequency enhanced water elixir delivers messages to the body that reduce the ability of cancer cells to produce antioxidants.
This action greatly increases the ability of the hydrogen peroxide to damage cancer cells because there will be fewer antioxidants in cancer cells neutralizing the oxides. This action is very significant. The cancer fighting power of using both PrugX and PrugX Enhancer is double what it is for PrugX alone, jumping up to 25,600 in our testing.
PrugX Enhancer does more than turning off the ability of cancer cells to produce antioxidants. It also contains instructions directing the free radical oxides in hydrogen peroxide to enter the nucleus of the cancer cell so that it can better destroy it.
In addition, there are instructions to damage all energy production capabilities in the cancer cells. This would work to starve the cancer cells of energy, causing them to die.
Because of this action, Prugx Enhancer prevents or reduces the likelihood of cancer cells metastasizing. Turns out that most cancer cells that move away from the original tumor starve to death. They are not able to produce enough energy to survive on their own. The cells that are able to produce enough energy to survive are the ones that spread the cancer throughout the body.
Because of the instructions in PrugX Enhancer focusing the hydrogen peroxide on damaging the energy producing capability of cancer cells, it is less likely that a cancer would be able to metastasize.
Use 3 bottles a month of both Prugx and PrugX Enhancer for early stage cancers, 4 bottles a month of both for advanced cancers, and 6 bottles a month of each for very advanced cancers. Remember, do not use antioxidants when taking PrugX and PrugX Enhancer. You do not want to interfere with the action of this top cancer fighting duo.
In almost all cases, except where there is a very slow growing cancer such as a prostate cancer that is not aggressive and has not spread, (as slow growing cells would not be producing a significant amount of hydrogen peroxide) PrugX and PrugX Enhancer are testing as the top two products in effectiveness. Followed by BLA and BLA Enhance. Then PrugX Immune Boost and ESME version C when swelling is not an issue, or ESME version NS when it is.
When PrugX and PrugX Enhancer are used with BLA and BLA Enhancer, cancer cells are poisoning themselves through auto-toxification in two ways -- by the buildup of both lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide. And will die that much faster.
Finally, while PrugX Immune Boost is covered in the Immune System Section, it deserves mention here with the other PrugX products as it works better with PrugX even though it is a top product for fighting cancer without the use of PrugX. The survival of cancer cells in large part lies with their ability to hide from the immune system, or to deregulate the immune system so that it doesn't attack them. Researchers have discovered several ways that cancer cells are able to do just this. PrugX Immune Boost delivers instructions into the body that work to nullify all the various ways cancer cells trick the immune system into ignoring them. It does this so well that on its own, without using PrugX too, it tests at a very high 13,300.
What supercharges PrugX Immune Boost is using it with PrugX and PrugX Enhancer. There are instructions in PrugX Immune Boost that tell the immune system to target cells with high oxidative stress. These will be cancer cells suffering from oxidative stress caused by the buildup of hydrogen peroxide in them. Caused by PrugX and by PrugX Enhanced. This additional way to enable the immune system to target cancer cells makes the combination of PrugX, PrugX Enhancer and PrugX Immune Boost a powerful cancer fighting combination -- testing at 43,400 in healing power for fighting cancer.
As with PrugX and PrugX Enhancer, use 3 bottles a month for early stage cancer, 4 for advanced and as much as 6 bottles a month for aggressive, very advanced cancers.
At providing antioxidants for cancer, this grape seed extract is 40 to 50 times more potent than the typical grape seed extract sold everywhere. This is because it is made using Masqueleir's third and final patent which utilizes expensive vacuum and low temperature processing to protect the anti-oxidant capabilities of the grape seed. Masqueleir was the researcher who discovered the OPC's in grape seed extract, and researched the many health benefits they provide.
It is highly anti-inflammatory, great for pain relief, the cardiovascular system and cancer. OPC's have a history of being powerful cancer fighters as they protect cells from free radical damage and boost immune response. As reported in PubMed, the conclusion of one study on OPC's and colorectal cancer is: "These data indicate that OPC caused cell death by apoptosis through caspase pathways on human colorectal cancer cell line, SNU-C4."
Most people don't get powerful results using grape seed extract because the extract they use has not been processed correctly so it is largely impotent. And they don't use enough. Even with the highly potent Health First Grape Seed Extract, you have to use a lot when fighting cancer. Use about 12 capsules daily for an early stage cancer, 18 a day for an advanced stage cancer. That's 6 to 9 bottles a month.
Now that we have covered using antioxidants for cancer, next we are going to take a look at how enzymes could help you beat cancer.
