Ginger is a wonderful spice that has the power to cure hundreds of diseases. Besides all these health benefits, it has been proven to be the best potential cure of cancer.
Turmeric is the best natural cure for cancer. Research has already proven its potential benefits. Ginger also has same potential and has been found to be thousands of times more efficient in curing cancer compared to medicines.
Researchers have been shocked after years of studies that have shown that many cancer medications are unsuccessful and rather work to speed the fatality rate in cancer patients. However, ginger has been proven to target and eliminate cancer cells, and it doesn’t affect the healthy ones
Anti-Cancer Potential of Ginger
Recent study conducted on mice performed at the Georgia State University found out that extract from ginger was highly effective in showing progress with prostate cancer. The tumor’s size has shrunk by more than 56%. Besides, other effects noticed included reduction in inflammation and increase in antioxidants in the mice.
Another study, which has been published by PLoS, further provided proof for the anticancer benefits of ginger. According to this study, the root has an ingredient called ‘(6)-shogaol’. It is thousands of times more effective compared to chemotherapy. It targeted the stem cells in breast cancer, which is the root or origin of the cancer.
These root cells (stem cells) are also called ‘mother cells’ in the medical field, and they can form different types of cancers. It is these stem cells that further form the ‘daughter cells’ that attack our body. What makes cancer stem cells so hazardous is that they are considered to be virtually immortal. A tumor will not have more than 1% of stem cells in it. The rest are daughter cancer cells.
These stem cells have the ability to regenerate and flourish in an endless cycle. Besides, chemotherapy also cannot affect them. They can regenerate and form new tumor colonies even when the tumors have been cured. If you are suffering from cancer, you are not completely treated until the last cancer stem cell has been eliminated.
The latest study has shown that (6)-shogaol is highly effective in targeting the cancer stem cells. It is generated when you dry/cook the ginger roots and its applications have almost no limits. The anti-cancer benefits of ginger are unique and far better than that of chemotherapy.
According to researchers, this special compound in ginger “goes after” cancer cells, but it does not have any effect on non-cancer, healthy cells. Sadly, this is not the same case with conventional cancer treatments. Chemotherapy and other treatments don’t have this unique type of targeted cytotoxicity and they usually damage the healthy cells also.
When researchers studied taxol, the cancer medication, they found that it was nowhere near the effectiveness of (6)-shogaol destroying cancer stem cells. (6)-shogaol was 10K times more effective in destroying cancer stem cells compared to taxol.
The overall findings indicated that (6)-shogaol is unmatchable in terms of its effectiveness in inhibiting tumors from forming while keeping the non-cancerous cells unaffected. Scientists believe that additional series of studies are required to further demonstrate that conventional cancer treatments are nowhere near this natural remedy. It is in fact the wrong way that cancer is being treated currently, and it is leaving the patient’s body in a devastated form.
