Cancer is a controversial subject mainly because not everyone agrees on the best ways to prevent and treat the disease however there is a lot of persuasive evidence when it comes to alternative medicine like resveratrol and prostate cancer which is the second or third most common type of cancer.
The prostate is a small gland structure which is located around a male’s reproduction system. The reason prostate cancer is so deadly is because it’s the number one most deadly cancer in men over the age of fifty. Treatment can also be very harsh when it comes to eliminating this disease.
The most common are watching and doing nothing, radiation therapy where impotence and urine problems may occur which is definitely not good right guys?
Others include hormone therapy where the side effects may be impaired sexual function, weak bones, and impotence to name a few. Lastly there is chemotherapy which is basically like destroying a city block to kill one person and then surgery. The good news is that if you discover prostate cancer in the early stages all these treatments can be 90% effective.
The bad news is that you still have to go through the treatments and you might get the side effects. The treatment I like the most is not getting the disease in the first place.
One solution to do this with is resveratrol. Resveratrol is a nutrient that comes from the skin of grapes. Every day normal cells in the human body divide reproduce and some of them die off. What cancer does it enable to cell to grow out of control thus spreading the disease. Resveratrol helps create healthier cells so it does make sense on how it can prevent cancerous cells from growing.
Another way that this nutrient can help fight off cancer is with its cleansing ability. It helps fight off toxins and free radicals which can also help prevent and fight cancer.
Beyond these common sense reasons that cures can be found with resveratrol and prostate cancer there is also a lot of studies that back up these theories. In 1997 Jang was the first to discover that when lab rats where given carcinogens if resveratrol was applied, it prevented cancer.
Carcinogens are common culprits that cause cancer such as radiation, and smoking. At a university in Alabama mice that were fed resveratrol were 87% less likely to develop prostate cancer than mice that were not given this nutrient.
Unfortunately none of these studies are applied to humans as of now. The conclusion is I take resveratrol and I don’t see how it can’t prevent cancer.
If you’re interested in more information on resveratrol as well as where to get it I would endorse checking out a FREE eBook that I wrote called “How to Choose a Good Supplement.” I discuss the role of the FDA in the industry as well as important nutrients to take and dosage amounts.
Most importantly I talk about ideas on avoiding products that could prove very deadly, which your not going to find anywhere else. To view this FREE eBook click on herbal nutrients guide.
