|Unfortunately, each week, we speak to someone who has some form of cancer. So this week, let’s take a look at how Canna Oils BCP can potentially help those with colon cancer. Below is an excerpt from a study, that in my opinion is very encouraging. I’ve put explanations of some of the words in brackets, so it’s easier to read.|
“The cytotoxicity (the degree to which something is toxic to living cells) of Beta-caryophyllene was tested against seven human cancer cell lines. The corresponding selectivity index was determined by testing its cytotoxicity on normal cells. The effects of Beta-caryophyllene were studied on a series of in vitro antitumor-promoting assays using colon cancer cells. Results showed that Beta-caryophyllene demonstrated selective antibacterial activity against S. aureus (a common bacterium that lives on the skin and in some people’s noses) and more pronounced anti-fungal activity than kanamycin (a water-soluble broad-spectrum antibiotic).
Beta-caryophyllene also displayed strong antioxidant effects. Additionally, Beta-caryophyllene exhibited selective anti-proliferative (used or tending to inhibit cell growth) effects against colorectal cancer cells. The results also showed that Beta-caryophyllene induces apoptosis (natural process of self-destruction) via nuclear condensation and fragmentation pathways including disruption of mitochondrial membrane potential. Further, Beta-caryophyllene demonstrated potent inhibition against clonogenicity (the degree to which a cell can form clones), migration, invasion and spheroid formation in colon cancer cells. These results prompt us to state that Beta-caryophyllene is the active principle responsible for the selective anticancer and antimicrobial activities of A. crassnia.
Beta-caryophyllene has great potential to be further developed as a promising chemotherapeutic agent against colorectal malignancies.”
|How exciting is that?! Again, Canna Oils BCP has the potential to be a great alternative / additional treatment for cancer, not mention it’s great antifungal and antibacterial properties.|
