The cancer-fighting triple-threat for your prostate

Prostate cancer is disturbingly common in men over 50.

In fact, 97 percent of prostate cancer cases occur in men 50 or older. And the risk continues to increase the older you get…

An astounding 80 percent of men who reach the age of 80 have cancer cells in their prostate.

So if you’re near or even past the 50-year mark, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to do to keep yourself from becoming another prostate cancer statistic…

Based on the latest research, one easy and effective solution would be to add 3 cancer-fighting compounds to your prostate health plan ASAP.

Don’t worry. These compounds occur naturally in common foods, so they’re not strange, dangerous or expensive. All they are is incredibly effective at starving prostate cancer cells… especially when paired together.

The trio that tames prostate cancer cells

Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin recently identified the three natural compounds that are most effective at combating prostate cancer in mice and human cells…

They sorted through 142 natural compounds to determine which ones packed the greatest punch against prostate cancer without negative side effects and determined that these three stood out from the rest —ursolic acid, curcumin and resveratrol.

After testing ursolic acid, curcumin and resveratrol on human prostate cancer cells in a laboratory, researchers tested them on mice with prostate cancer too. And all three reduced the size and weight of prostate tumors.

“After screening a natural compound library, we developed an unbiased look at combinations of nutrients that have a better effect on prostate cancer than existing drugs,” says corresponding author Stefano Tiziani, assistant professor in the Department of Nutritional Sciences and Dell Pediatric Research Institute at UT Austin. “The beauty of this study is that we were able to inhibit tumor growth in mice without toxicity.”

Even more exciting, combining the compounds produced unique benefits. Combining ursolic acid with curcumin or resveratrol, for example, kept prostate cancer cells from consuming glutamine, a nutrient they need to grow. By blocking them from consuming this nutrient, these compounds worked together to effectively starve prostate cancer cells.

Trying these cancer-fighting compounds

Now, there’s no doubt in my mind you’re familiar with both curcumin and resveratrol. Curcumin is the caner-fighting compound found in turmeric, and resveratrol is the anti-aging compound found in red grapes and red wine. But you may not be as acquainted ursolic acid…

Ursolic acid is a waxy compound found in apple peels, rosemary and a number of other fruits and herbs. Previous studies show it can ward off muscle loss and burn calories. Some other foods that contain this beneficial compound include, prunes, peppermint, cranberries, basil, rosemary, oregano, bilberries and thyme.

So, now you know what’s going on your next shopping list… resveratrol-rich red grapes, turmeric and a few ursolic acid-rich foods that will hopefully keep age-related prostate cancer far, far away.
