Sea Cucumber – A New Hope In The Fight Against Cancer!
Sea cucumber is a marine animal that can fight cancer and inhibits its growth.
According to a recent research, sea cucumber extract can kill 95% of breast cancer cells in in vitro experiments. It also killed 90% of melanoma cells, 95% of liver cancer cells and 88% of lung cancer cells. Sea cucumber extract can strengthen the immune system and improve its ability to fight cancer while inhibiting vital metastasis processes. “Although this is new for western medicine, sea cucumber has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries,” Ethan Evers, author of the book “The Eden Prescription” explains.
An older research has proven that sea cucumber is a powerful tool against pancreatic, lung, prostate, colon, breast, skin and liver cancer, as well as against melanoma and glioblastoma. Scientists have identified triterpenoid as the main anticancer agent in sea cucumber.
A new study called “Frondoside A Suppressive Effects on Lung Cancer Survival, Tumor Growth, Angiogenesis, Invasion, and Metastasis” by Dr. Samir Attoub and Dr. Oliver De Wever has confirmed that frondoside A has anticancer effects. This extract killed 95% of breast cancer cells, 90% of melanoma cells, 95% of liver cancer cells and 85-88% of lung cancer cells in lab tests. Frondoside A induces apoptosis in the cancer cells and inhibits angiogenesis while stopping metastasis by interfering with cell migration.
Frondoside A can also activate the body’s healthy cells to kill cancer cells which was proven in breast cancer lab tests, and it’s even more effective than chemotherapy while having no adverse side-effects.
Animal studies have proven that it reduces tumors by 40% in only 10 days. Although chemotherapy reduces tumors by 47% in the same time, this natural compound doesn’t damage the DNA and has no adverse side-effects such as kidney damage and immunosuppression. According to scientists, frondoside A stimulates the immune system and doesn’t have any side-effects in mice.
The most intriguing part of the research is that frondoside A can be used against cancer in small amounts – less than 1 mg. for a grown man of 75 kg. It’s also worth mentioning that administration of frondoside A along chemotherapy shrunk the tumors by 68%.
At the moment, there are two clinical trials under way on the use of sea cucumber against myeloma and multiple myeloma as well as breast and lung cancer.
Sea cucumber is available in dry and powdered form and it’s recommended as a natural remedy for inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.
