grapes bundle 263x164 Grapeseed Extract Better than Chemo at Halting Advanced CancerThanks to research coming out of the University of Colorado Cancer Center, and published in the medical journal Cancer Letters, those suffering from colon and rectal cancers might soon be able to ditch the cancer-causing ‘medicine’ called chemotherapy, and instead utilize a simple herbal extract with better success. Grapeseed extract (GSE) has recently been proven to prohibit cancerous cell growth and to instigate cancer cell death.

The bioactive compounds in grapeseed extract are what make chemotherapy seem like an archaic form of treatment, especially considering that chemo and radiation treatments can backfire and cause cancer to come back from remission 10 times stronger than when it was first detected. These treatments kill healthy cells, but GSE compounds including curcumin and resveratrol leave healthy cells in tact while demolishing cancerous ones.

GSE is so effective that it treats stage IV cancers with astonishing success. One of the doctors involved with the study stated, “It required less than half the concentration of GSE to suppress cell growth and kill 50 percent of stage IV cells than it did to achieve similar results in the stage II cells.” They go on to explain that GSE targets multiple mutations in cells to eliminate them and stop their proliferation in the body.

Just 150 to 250 mg per day of GSE can help to prevent colon and rectal cancers while also preventing numerous other ailments.

Curcumin and Resveratrol – More Cancer Fighter

A bio-active compound in GSE and popular supplement, resveratrol has been found to help with everything from diabetes to anti-aging; from heart disease to cancer. Chinese medicine practitioners have long known that resveratrol (found in Hu Zhang or Japanese Knotwood) can even help repair cracks in arterial linings. It has been used for more than 1500 years to treat numerous medical problems and to increase longevity.


If you can’t get your hands on grapeseed extract or simply want another cancer-preventing option. look no further than curcumin supplementation. One study on curcumins (which is the compound found in the spice turmeric) from the University of Kansas’ Cancer Center and Medical Center, indicated that curcumin inhibits the growth of esophageal cancer cell lines, though how it works “is not well understood”.

    Where is the citation for the study? Without the proof of the study we kind of lose validity when you make pretty big claims. I do like to share things like this, but unless you have some study backing you up the ones sharing it look like a bunch of idiots.

  • educatedhealth

    How many people where in this study?
    was it a blind study?
    where there two groups or three for a control?
    had this study been replicated?
    the fact that this article omits the most important facts that validate claims, the absence suggests otherwise.

      If you click on highlighted links within the article, you’ll be directed to more information regarding the scientific methodology for these studies, e.g.: “One of the doctors involved with the study stated,”

      What do you think the blue highlighted phrases are for, educatedhealth?
      Your questions are valid but are you really that naive, or are you a paid shill?

        Clown…that’s the point of the article. The author should be doing more than saying “Hey, this stuff is good.” He should be summarizing the article and answering those types of questions. Otherwise, why write it? Anyone can read the study. Should he just post a link to the study and say “read this”?

        You’re “paid shill” remark just betrays your ignorance and bias. Just because somebody has questions and does not want to read some medical study full of complicated terminology doesn’t make them less credible..but, you “shill” remark makes you look dumb. I read the article and consdiered it a waste of time except for the fact that it links to the study. So….I guess I’ll do my own homework and summarize it for myself….but then why the article? You seem like a “Know it all” or are YOU the shill?

          Nice that your reply opens with name-calling based on my last name. “Clown” for “McCown”. Hee-haw, good work! Haven’t heard that one since maybe 7th grade. That, and your grammatical and spelling errors pretty much leave me wondering why I’m even replying to your comment. The intelligent readers of this board can draw their own conclusions. And in no way am I a “know it all” or shill for that matter. If you actually knew me I think you would find me humble, down-to-earth, kind of a geek with a sense of humor. I am known by many names, but most people call me…TIM. I’m interested in articles on this site for health information beyond the MSM BigPharma manipulated crap that’s spoon-fed to the masses. Take ‘er easy dude, abide.

    I’m wondering- aren’t “Grapefruit Seed Extract” (aka GSE), and “Grape Seed Extract” two very different things? Well, I know that they are, and since you can buy grapeFRUIT seed extract under the name “GSE” I think people may be a bit confused about this…. I love and use them both, but this isn’t correctly worded! Considering the gravity of a persons situation when dealing w/cancer, I feel that this is way too important a detail to overlook. Thanks.

    • cory

      Thank you Amy, I was wondering precisely the same thing. I use grapeFRUIT seed extract to knock down colds and sore throats, and it works incredibly well, but I have no experience with grape seed extract. And I agree with both Garrett and Carl Moore that entities such as the FDA, the pharmaceutical industry, as well as cancer research societies have little, if none at all, interest in finding natural treatments or cures for cancer, as long as it is incredibly profitable for them to deny or suppress such research.

  • Carl Moore

    the goverment well stop its use unless they get the money.

  • Garrett

    The government will ban its use if it actually works/doesn’t make them much money
