We all know at this point that cancer does, in fact, thrive in a highly acidic body. The more balanced your pH is, the better.
One of the absolute best foods for making your body more alkaline is without a doubt wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is a superfood that most people forget even exists. It has a very high nutritional value and is packed with over 100 different important nutrients.
There have been several studies on the benefits of wheatgrass or the chlorophyll in wheatgrass and how it works on cancer cells. A study published in the international journal Tumor Biology actually found that chlorophyll down-regulates the signaling pathways cancer cells need in order to continue growing. This meaning it keeps them from getting bigger
Another study from 2010 that really got me hooked on wheatgrass even went so far as to show that chlorophyll worked as a protective agent against toxins found in breast cancer cells. It was deemed likely to be a good chemoprotective agent for a large portion of the human population. Many have seen great success in using wheatgrass as a means of protecting and improving their health.
Wheatgrass is easy to get and has a very interesting flavor like nothing else. Whether you eat it or drink it in a smoothie the positive effects are endless. It really works wonders and can even go so far as to help eliminate toxins in the body.
Another study worth going over is one published in the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research titled “Wheatgrass: Green Blood can Help to Fight Cancer.” When analyzing the effect of the aqueous wheatgrass extract on oral squamous cell carcinoma researchers found it was able to inhibit the effects of the oral cancer cell line proliferation. It was able to stop cancer in its tracks.
Oral squamous cell carcinoma is the sixth most common cancer worldwide and is one of the leading causes of death especially in developing countries like India. It is usually managed with the help of chemotherapeutic agents that are toxic not only to the tumor cells but also to normal cells in many ways. Whereas the traditional herbal medicines which are used from ancient days in India are generally known to be free of toxic effects and are effective.
Wheatgrass is the young grass of the wheat plant ‘Tritcumaestivum Linn’, family Poaceae (Gramineae). It contains a number of vitamins, mineral, amino acids and vital enzymes, these play an important role in the anticancer approach of this herbal product. It is also called as ‘green blood’ because of its high content of chlorophyll, which bears a structural similarity to hemoglobin and this result in high oxygen supply to all the body tissues.
There is a lot more to the world of holistic healing than most people realize. Things like this could change the world if people would listen.
