Researchers from the Indiana University and Methodist Research Institute examined an unconventional approach of a medical mushroom formula to battle against breast cancer.
The findings of the study are in the December issue of the International Journal of Oncology. The results are inspiring in the battle against breast cancer.
Dr. Daniel Sliva, head researcher states that the formula prevents the growing of powerful metastatic human breast cancer cells, it also restrains the metastatic possibility of these cells. The formula which is all natural is created from a combination of six strong assortments of medical mushrooms cultivated on immune boosting and cancer battling botanicals which work jointly to give breast protection and immune system support. The conditions in which they were grown aide naturally to expand the amount biologically active ingredients in the mushrooms.
Breast cancer is among one of the most common cancers affecting women and has caused 39,840 deaths this year in the United States. Even though there has been essential advancements made in the treatment of breast cancer, treatments for advanced breast cancer still provide minimal hope. This new study demonstrates this strong mushroom formula holds a favorable possibility in the battle against highly intrusive form of breast cancer. Medical mushrooms have been greatly studied and researched for their anti-tumor and their immune modifying results. The mushrooms are vital for the maintenance of overall endurance and cellular health. Dr. Eliaz points out that the special blend of ingredients generated positive and encouraging results. The compounds support breast health through guarding cellular and immune boosting vitality. The researchers of the study acknowledge Dr. Eliaz for developing the formula.
Dr. Sliva in final comments notes that cancer metastasis is a involved development that consists of cell adhesion, migration, invasion and the stopping of some of the processes that is vital to restrain cancer metastasis. The formula the researchers studied restricts all of the processes, does not have any side effects which are linked to chemotherapy treatments.
Agaricus bisporus mushroom
The most edible and most common mushroom. Studies conducted on this mushroom at the City of Hope National Medical Center, had studied this mushroom type and its effects of halting breast cancer development.
A controlled study last year was conducted which had observed the diets in 2018 women. Half of the women did have breast cancer. The study had revealed a major decrease of occurrences of the cancer in women who had diets that consisted of consuming greater than 10 grams of fresh mushrooms each day The women in study who had consumed the fresh mushrooms each day had a less chance for the risk of developing breast cancer. It also had shown that women who not only had mushrooms in their daily diet but also had regular consumption of green tea, had a breast cancer risk decrease by almost ninety percent.
In another study in which was conducted among Korean women had discovered a strong association of the consumption of mushrooms and reduction in the risk of breast cancer.
In vivo research (research done using a living organism) has shown that the everyday common mushroom holds the possibility to stimulate the immune system. On one of the studies conducted on this mushroom to was discovered to boost dendritic cell function. In the testing, a compound was displayed in these ordinary mushrooms that has anti-cancer properties. These properties have the ability to halt the growing of the HT29 colon cancer cells, Caco-2 colon cancer cells, MCF-7 breast cancer cells. This mushroom turns out to be a unique source of combined linoleic acid and have natural antioxidants.
Agaricus Brazil Mushroom
In a little known cultural area are the persons who reside in Piepdade, which location is about 200 kilometers from Sao Paulo, the capital of Brazil. The residents of this community live long and extremely healthy lives had hardly ever endure common illnesses or diseases such as cancer, heart disease, asthma or arthritis.
Two American scientists who had visited this area some forty years prior, had discovered the persons who live there ate a type of mushroom which could not be located in Brazil or any part of the world. Their findings had been published and from their examination of the nutritional content of the mushroom it was noted in scientific journals widely.
Former President Ronald Reagan was known to take these mushrooms in his successful fight against skin cancer. Agaricus Blazei Murill become known to the world.
Studies were sped up in Japan to study the health properties of this mushroom. It was discovered to be effective as a cancer inhibitor through animal experiments. It was also noted to be one of the best medical mushrooms to battle cancer with a noted cure rate of 99% and inhibition rate of 99.4%.
At the University of Tokyo University Medical Department, the National Cancer Center Laboratory and Tokyo College of Pharmacy, mice who had cancerous tumors were fed the mushroom. These cancerous tumors were eliminated by 90% in the mice. In mice who were fed the mushroom as a protective agent, then injected with a strong cancer causing Sarcoma 180, 99.4% of the mice had shown no tumor growth.
Dr. Mamdooh Ghoneum, Ph.D, with the King Drew Medical Center of UCLA, in 1995, discovered the mushrooms can add to the total number of immune cells throughout the entire body. Also, discovered was its ability to make the cells stronger.
Dr. Ghoneum findings were presented at the San Francisco’s Ninth World’s Immunology Congress.
Mushrooms and breast cancer
Researchers from the Beckman Research Institute, had tested seven vegetable extracts for their enzyme blocking activity and discovered white button mushrooms had the strongest effects. Researchers examined ten other kinds of mushrooms and those that also halted enzyme activity were stuffing mushrooms, portobello, crimini, shiitake and baby button. Since white button mushrooms are consumed the most, the extracts from the mushroom was tested. It was found that the extract decreased the spreading of breast cancer cells in a lab dish and when fed to mice who were implanted with breast cancer cells it had halted tumor growth. Based upon amounts of extract used on the mice it was established 100 grams of mushrooms each day would be sufficient to prevent breast cancer growth.
The theory of mushrooms decreasing breast cancer is due to the immunoassay in the mushroom which halts the enzyme used by the body to create estrogen.
