Recent studies across the globe have researched the effects of natural chemicals found in particular foods on cancer cells. In particular, the effects of capsaicin found in red chilli peppers and curcumin, found in the yellow curry spice turmeric have demonstrated promising anti-cancer effects.
In a recent study conducted at the Department of Urology in the Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan China, investigators found in an in vivo study using mice that capsaicin significantly slowed the growth of bladder cancer cells in a dose dependent manner. These results were further supported in a study conducted by the American Association For Cancer Research where it was found that capsaicin was particularly effective at inducing apoptosis in cancer cells. According to Dr. Srivastava, Assistant Professor at the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, “ capsaicin triggered the cancerous cells to die off and significantly reduced the size of the tumors”. The study demonstrated the effectiveness of capsaicin as a “potent anti-cancer agent” said Dr. Srivastava.
Similarly, research on the effectiveness of turmeric as an effective anti-cancer agent has also demonstrated promising anti-tumor properties. Studies conducted at the Cork Cancer Research Centre and reported in the British Journal Of Cancer have demonstrated that curcumin can destroy gullet cancer cells in the lab and that cancer cell death was initiated within a period of 24hrs.
Both capsaicin and curcumin have demonstrated promising results in recent studies and may serve as important therapeutic agents in cancer. Providing a simple method to consume the appropriate amount of these natural anti-cancer chemicals has been the focus of US based Biomedical Company, Millennium Bioceutics with the release of their patent-pending formulation found in Caplex Nutrition Supplement. This supplement contains both capsaicin and curcumin in quantities based on effective dosage levels determined in research studies. By combining these two powerful agents along with 7 other key antioxidant nutrients in an easy to consume caplet, the Caplex Nutrition Supplement provides a convenient and comfortable means of consuming the optimal amounts of these anti-cancer nutrients.
