Blood of the Dragon for Cancer Defense?

By November 8, 2012

Follow me on:

A dark-red liquid sourced from a South American tree, blood of the dragon is sometimes touted as a natural cancer-fighter. Long used in herbal medicine, blood of the dragon has been found to offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects in a number of scientific studies.

In preliminary research, tests on animals and on human cancer cells have shown that blood of the dragon may help slow the growth of tumors and induce apoptosis (a type of programmed cell death essential for stopping the proliferation of cancer cells). However, more studies need to be conducted before blood of the dragon can be recommended for cancer prevention.

For help in boosting your cancer defense, try consuming antioxidant-rich substances like turmeric, green tea, and garlic on a regular basis. Some preliminary studies indicate that each of these remedies may provide cancer-fighting benefits. Read the full article: Blood of the Dragon - What You Need to Know.
