Have you thought on the reason behind clubbing turmeric, red grapes and apple together? Do they have any similarity or do they in combination have some beneficial or side effect on health?? Why is it combined with prostate cancer cells? These could be the common question you would have got in mind, the moment you read the title, is it not??
Well, hold on!! Here is the answer to all your concern –
A new study conducted in the US have found the ability of these compounds to prevent one of the common cancers, Prostate cancer. They have the ability to starve the prostate cancer cells and thus shrink them!!
The compounds had 3 important components that halted prostate cancer cells, namely –
- Curcumin, a yellow compound in turmeric
- Ursolic acid, found in apple peel
- Resveratrol, found in red grapes and berries
These compounds either in combination or individually prevent the uptake of glutamine by prostate cancer cells, thus preventing tumour growth. Glutamine is a very important amino acid that helps in growth of cancer cells. When the uptake is effected, the cancer cells starve and that leads to death!!
Thus natural components aids in preventing and halting and in turn killing certain cancer cells! The only requirement is that the intake of such compounds needs to be increased in the diet!!!
