Vibrant Spice DESTROYS Cancer

It’s no secret that food plays a major role in who gets cancer… and who doesn’t.

That’s why you skip the sugary, processedfoodsand load up on organic produce every chance you get. 

But if you’re leaving out a certain vibrant spice… you’re not doing EVERYTHING you can to LOWER your risk of getting the “Big C”.  

You see, scientists have found that this wonder plant can DESTROY cancer in FIVE different ways. 

Even better?  You can get it at your local grocery store. 

Saffron is an ancient spice made from the flowers of the Crocus sativa plant.

Because of its stunning red-orange color, the delicious spice has been used to elevate both the appearance and taste of some of the most elegant international dishes.

Saffron has also been a vital part of Ayurveda, Chinese Traditional Medicine, the Mediterranean diet, and herbal healing all over the world.

And exciting new research reveals that saffron can DESTROY cancer, too.

You see, saffron contains three powerful carotenoids – or antioxidant plant pigments – called crocetin, crocin, and safranal. 

Together, these compounds give saffron the ability to effectively fight cancer in FIVE crucial ways:

#1 Saffron triggers cancer cell death.

A study published in Hepatology showed that a two-week saffron treatment caused cancer cell death because it blocked inflammation and reduced cancerous nodules.

#2 Saffron STOPS cancer growth.

Animal and cell studies have shown that saffron inhibits the triggers – like environmental toxins, oxidative damage, radiation, inflammation, etc. – that start the cancer process, stopping cancer cells before they even form.

#3 Saffron BLOCKS destructive enzymes.

Saffron extract inhibits the production of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP), one of the enzymes cancer cells use to gain access to healthy cells in order to spread. Crocetin, in particular, helps to decrease cancer cells’ ability to produce MMP which prevents cancer cells from taking hold and growing.

#4 Saffron STARVES cancerous tumors.

Researchers have found that the carotenoids in saffron block the signaling molecule that tumors produce in order to form new blood supplies. This means saffron helps to deprive tumor masses of blood, oxygen, andnutrients.

#5 Saffron AVOIDS healthy cells.

In a study published in Experimental Oncology, saffron caused an incredible 97.2 percent reduction in colon cancer cells – all without harming healthy cells.

If you or a loved one is coping with a cancer diagnosis or wants to prevent one in the future, saffron is nothing short of miraculous.

But that’s not all…

If you’re already receiving conventional cancer treatment, saffron supplementation reduces the toxic side effects of chemotherapy drugs.

In fact, it prevents damage to your DNA cells during radiation. 

You can, of course, use raw saffron in your meals but supplementation is an even better way to reap the benefits.

Saffron supplements are available at your local health food store and online from YouTheoryLife Extension, and Swanson Vitamins.
