Edible acid annihilates Alzheimer’s, cancer and diabetes

Chronic diseases are ones that hang around for the long haul…

Which is exactly why you want to avoid getting one in the first place, or if you have one, do everything possible to overcome it.

Maybe you’re battling one right now and you feel you’ve made all the right lifestyle adjustments… and are taking all the right nutrients — but you just can’t get on top of it.

Thankfully there is a powerful natural compound that’s been shown to combat several chronic conditions. A bioactive compound with incredibly powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers known to slay even the most hard-to-treat conditions out there…

Ellagic acid.

Ellagic acid is a natural phenol, an organic compound found in a variety of delicious fruits such as pomegranates, plums, peaches, grapes, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and cranberries, as well as nuts like pecans, almonds and walnuts.

And all you have to do is indulge in a few servings of delicious, ellagic acid-rich foods every day — a handful of delicious berries and nuts — to experience the following advantages…

Ward off cancer

This is huge: Ellagic acid battles against uncontrolled division of cancer cells by preventing proliferation and multiplication of cells. It’s especially effective against cancers of the colon, esophagus, prostate and skin.

Ellagic acid also plays a role in DNA maintenance and stability to prevent the onset of cancer. And another added advantage is it alters the energy pathway of cancerous cells, starving them so they self-destruct.

And remarkably, these events only happen to the damaged, cancerous cells in your body — keeping your healthy cells intact and functioning at their best!

Save your brain from amyloid plaques

Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are major contributors to chronic diseases, including Alzheimer’s.

In animal studies, ellagic acid administered through pomegranate feeding has been shown to lower inflammatory molecules in the brain and prevent the accumulation and deposits of amyloid B plaques — a hallmark feature that leads to the development of Alzheimer’s.

Calm ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease

These are two very tough-to-treat inflammatory conditions. But not too tough for ellagic acid to have an effect…

An animal study examining the daily supplementation of ellagic acid for ulcerative colitis showed a significant reduction in several inflammatory markers, as well as a complete halt in the progression of the disease.

It works by targeting the enzymes that are responsible for promoting inflammation and pain, much like anti-inflammatory drugs — but without the side effects.

Promote a healthy liver

Ellagic acid’s potent antioxidant actions give your liver a much-needed detoxification break so it can focus more time to repair, especially if you are taking a truckload of medications that burden your liver over time.

Its effects in helping your liver deal with a toxic load also promote improved overall liver function, which aids with conditions like diabetes, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome.

Counteract diabetes

And finally, if you have type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, make berries and nuts your new best friend…

Ellagic acid appears to work on pancreatic beta-cells, increasing their size and number and enhancing their activity to help stimulate insulin secretion and decrease glucose intolerance — all of which means your blood sugar levels will be easier to manage.

Editor’s note: Are you feeling unusually tired? You may think this is normal aging, but the problem could be your master hormone. When it’s not working, your risk of age-related diseases skyrockets.
