Sea cucumber is not that know to Americans because it is mainly used in Chinese medicine. However, this will change forever because scientists have discovered that sea cucumber may help in cancer treatment because it can kill cancer cells effectively.
Ethan Evers, the author of The Eden Prescription, made a research on sea cucumber. In his research, he proves the ability of sea cucumber to kill lung, breast, prostate, skin, colon, pancreatic and liver cancer cells. Sea cucumber is also proven to have beneficial effect on leukemia and gioblastoma cells.
So what is the thick? Main component of sea cucumber is frondoside A. Frondoside A is a triterpenoid, a diverse organic compound also found in essential oil. A study published in PLoS One confirms the powerful effects of frondoside A. According to this study frondoside A kills 95% of ER+ breast cancer cells, 95% of liver cancer cells, 90% of melanoma cells, and 85-88% of three different types of lung cancer thus becoming one of the most powerful medicine against cancer.
As Evers reports that the benefits from this compound are numerous and not only that it kills cancer cells but also inhibits the tumors and destroys them. With this it stops new cells and tumors to grow and appear. In the same time, frondoside A has beneficial effect on our immune system and gives the much-needed boast of energy. This is why frondoside A is better than any known drug on the market and more effective than chemotherapy.
The power and effects from frondoside A were tested in a study with mice and the results showed that it reduces tumors by 40% only in 10 days. In addition, the study showed that there are no side effects from this chemical and small doses are enough for the best results.
However, sea cucumber is still not offered to the market for cancer treatment because it is in its experimental phase. We hope that soon we will be able to use this super food and prevent and cure cancer. For now powdered sea cucumber may be found in stores for healthy food and is used for arthritis due to its anti – inflammatory properties.
