In 2013, more than 1.17 million people suffered from colorectal cancer according to the National Cancer Institute.
All types of cancer are difficult to treat and almost are all lethal. However, colorectal cancer is among the deadlist as it poses a lot more complicated health problems.
Although technology and advance medicine are slowly providing medical treatments and procedures to help patients survive cancer, some people simply prefer to resort to natural methods.
Accordingly, science has looked into fruits and how it can serve in the battle against cancer. Among the top picks is jackfruit.
The fruit that typically grows in tropical countries most especially in some regions in Southeast Asia is believed to be a powerful cancer-killing fruit. It can help in preventing cancer, especially colon cancer.
Below are some of its powerful nutrients that help in combating cancer:
-Antioxidants fight free radicals, protect cell DNA against dangerous toxins and prevent cell mutation that usually leads to cancer.
2. Isoflavones and Lignans
-Isoflavones and Lignans, or also known as phytoestrogens, bind to the product of estrogen. According to one study of the National Cancer Institute, these nutrients greatly contributed in reducing endometrial cancer development.
A published study of the National Cancer Institute involving 500 women proved that jackfruit consumption and other food with these nutrients have positive effects. The women who ate the fruit showed significant cancer risk reduction.
-Phytonutrients can prevent the early stages of the formation of cancer cells. It is highly recommended for those battling stomach ulcers as it fights cancer's progress and improves patient's condition.
-This is a known anti-cancer agent. Saponins react to the surface layer of cancer cells and bind into them, hindering its further growth.
On a study published in the Journal of Nutrition in 1995, this nutrient prevents colon cancer development. A separate study has also discovered that it has the powerful ability to cause mitotic arrest on leukemia cancer cells which causes remission and possible recovery.
Additionally, jackfruit also contains fiber that cleanses both the colon and gastrointestinal tract.
