Do you have any idea how much powerful is Ginger when it comes to curing various diseases? This food has a lot of properties as well as uses, but the most important one is being a natural cure for many diseases.
According to a recent study, ginger is as powerful as turmeric when it comes to its effect on cancer cells. Moreover, the results showed that it’s even more effective than some cancer medications, which very often contributed to the cancer patients accelerated death.
In one of Georgia State University researches, it was proven that the prostate tumor size in mice was reduced by 56% with the help of a whole ginger extract. Besides been effective in killing cancer cells, ginger showed ability in the reduction of inflammation, as well as in life-enhancing antioxidants supply in mice.
One ginger component, called 6-shogaol, proved to be superior to the regular cancer medication, or in other words chemotherapy, since it targets the breast cancer stem cells, according to a study published in PLoS.
These stem cells are also called ‘mother cells’ and they are the reason of the development of various types of cancer, not just the breast cancer. They produce so called ‘daughter cells’ which actually form a tumor colony. The cancer stem cells are practically immortal, since they can easily self- renew, thought they take around 0.2 to 1% of the cell part of the tumor. But the only way to get rid of the cancer cells in your body is to kill these cancer stem cells in tumor.
A new study discovered that the ginger component called 6-shogaol, has shown as super active when encountered with anti-cancer stem reaction. This component is created with drying or cooking of the ginger root. However, there’s another thing which makes 6-shogaol superior to cancer chemotherapy treatments.
It was found that this component destroyed cancer cells without damaging other healthy cells, since it’s completely non-toxic to them, as oppose to the regular chemotherapy which is harming the cancer patients. For example, one study showed that 6-shogaol was 10,000 times more effective than the increased concentration of taxol-a cancer drug.
Still, there are many more researches that need to be done to prove that the natural medicines against cancer are more effective than the modern medicine. But we must remember that we shouldn’t harm our bodies while trying to cure a disease.
