Have you every tried a raspberry smoothie before? If you haven’t, then you better get out your blender and prep your body for some serious cancer-killing action.
Tests conducted at the Hollings Cancer Centre at the Medical University of South Carolina have found that the human body readily absorbs ellagic acid from red raspberries, and it is this ellagic acid that inhibits abnormal division of cells and promotes the normal death of healthy cells.
Ellagic acid has been found to contribute to significant inhibition of colon, esophageal, liver, lung, tongue, and skin cancers. Anthocyanin’s in raspberries also protect against heart disease and age-related memory decline!
Raspberries are also highly anti-inflammatory, and inhibit the production of COX-I and COX-II enzymes, which over-the-counter drugs like ibuprofen and aspirin normally inhibit.
