Parsley Tea Kills Cancer
PARSLEY TEA KILLS CANCER CELLS
Parsley is a great source of antioxidant nutrients. It boosts your liver health, and it’s good for your eyes. Perhaps most impressive of all, components of parsley have been found to help prevent — and even fight — cancer.
Parsley’s anti-cancer power
Apigenin, a compound found in parsley, has repeatedly been found to have strong anti-cancer properties.
In fact, more than 600 PubMed-indexed journal articles relate to the compound’s role in cancer. In research published September 2015 in Oncotarget, scientists for the first time were able to identify how Apigenin is able to effectively slow down or stop an undesirable enzyme called IKKA, which plays a role in cancer progression. Their conclusion? Apigenin has the potential to significantly reduce cancer progression.The researchers also showed how, in mice, apigenin stops tumor growth and lowers the growth rate of dangerous cancer cells.
But this research is not alone in identifying apigenin’s anticancer abilities. Some other examples:
- A 2008 clinical trial used apigenin, along with green tea, to great success in reducing the rate of cancer in patients with colon cancer.
- A 2012 study at the University of Missouri found that apigenin was able to effectively treat breast cancer.
- A 2013 study in PubMed.gov found that apigenin killed up to 86 percent of lung cancer cells in vitro.
