We’ve always included Milk Thistle in our Detox/Anti-Fatigue Natural Enzyme Supplement. Now, new research suggests that milk thistle could be even more powerful than we thought.
Lung cancer is a disease that devastates the lives of millions. It has a very low survival rate of less than 10% after five years from diagnosis. There are a number of triggers that cause tissue damage that eventually results in NA damage, which allows lung cancer cells to spread. But now researchers from the United States have found that treatment with a milk thistle component effectively treated the wound development in lung cancer cells by halting the illness and preventing metastasis.
Milk thistle… popular for centuries, and now we know why!
Milk thistle has long been popular for it’s rejuvenating effects on the liver, and is now being proven as a valuable therapy to help prevent the breakdown and damage to lung tissue by cancer cells. Milk thistle has been popular in medicine for almost 2,000 years, but very little solid scientific proof existed to prove it’s potential for human health benefits.
Hard pharmaceuticals look to break the reactions caused by cancer cell growth in a harsh way: they halt metabolic processes in the body, but can have deadly consequences. Two enzymes involved are COX2 and iNOS, and they are involved in the chain reactions that create inflammation at the site of a wound or an infection. If a wound is created, like a cut, then inflammation is the desired result to aid in healing. But excess body weight and poor diet choices cause inflammation also, and these are serious problems underlying a lot of chronic diseases, including lung cancer.
So, the two enzymes mentioned above actually aid tumor growth, and they remain in circulation in response to chronic inflammation. But researchers have found that when these reactions are broken, tumor growth in cancer is halted. They have found that milk thistle derivatives help to break this bad metabolic cycle, and so, help to halt the spread of lung cancer.
Just another reason to try Atone Detox/Anti Fatigue with milk thistle!
