Raspberry and Ellagic Acid03.06.2009
by Life Enthusiast Staff
Your body has the ability to dissolve cancerous and pre-cancerous cells within a few days, and to replace them with young and healthy cells. However, you must feed and activate the responsible cellular mechanism, with the exact nutrient, in the potency it requires.
This can be done naturally.
Raspberries contain one of the most powerful antioxidants known; a series of ellagatannins which are converted into ellagic acid in your body. Many fruits contain ellagatannins, but your body cannot convert all sources into useable, beneficial levels of ellagic acid.
Ellagic Acid has the ability to inhibit mutations within a cell's DNA, causing apoptosis (normal death) in cancer cells. In addition, research has found that it has antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Raspberries are one of the few sources of ellagatannins that your body can transform into useful levels of ellagic acid. The very best way to get the ellagic acid is with extra fine ground raspberry seeds, combined with synergists.
Ellagic acid has been found to inhibit the promotions and progression of many cancers, by keeping the cancer cells from dividing and multiplying.
Ellagitannins can also lead to cholesterol reduction and other benefits such as antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, slowing gum recession and weight loss. Excellent for "body maintenance".
Economical and Delicious:
Can be added to fruit juice or smoothies, baking or salads, since it can withstand temperatures up to 400 degrees F.
Whole Raspberry Seeds
Natural, Ellagic Acid Antioxidant
Exsula Superfoods, Whole Raspberry Seed are of the Meeker variety, and much like flax seed they need to be freshly ground before each use, to preserve the fragile essential fatty acids from oxidization.
This product is for those who like to grind and mix raspberry seed with other ingredients, creating a unique nutritional program.
Blueberry Seeds and Strawberry Seeds
We also have whole, raw and organic Blueberry and Strawberry Seeds, for smoothie enthusiasts who own a high-powered blender (VitaMix, Blendtec, Waring) to add freshly ground seeds with other ingredients. Or for "health nuts" to create their own nutritional programs. May be ground fresh in a small coffee grinder. Use right after grinding, as the seed will quickly oxidize and turn rancid.
Powerful Anti-Inflammatory, Supplement for Omega 3, 6 and 9 EFA's
This Muscadine Grape and Meeker Raspberry extract blend has been shown to contain as much as 50 times the content of antioxidant compounds as other extracts.
Add 15-20 drops to your favorite beverage or smoothies twice daily.
May be added to your pet's water also.
The inner goodies of the raspberry seed are protected by one of nature's toughest shells, and no matter how fine we grind it or how long you soak it, you'll feel this tough shell between your teeth. Please know this means you're getting access to the complete spectrum of co-nutrients and incredible ellagic goodness, plus the healthy cleansing fiber of this most splendid seed.
This special antioxidant blend protects the Raspberry's ellagic-carrying essential fatty acids (EFAs) from free-radical oxidation. And the Lecithin formula emulsifies those EFAs to blend with water (a process essential for their conversion into assimilable Liposome Units).
Ellagic Acid is present in all parts of the raspberry, but it is most highly concentrated in the seed. It was found that Ellagic Acid is not changed, nor its potency weakened, by freezing, drying, or processing into a powder. The seed is processed into a maximum bioavailable flour, which frees the ellagitannins for immediate absorption and transformation into ellagic acid.
Many fruits contain ellagitannins. However, raspberry ellagitannins are one of very few fruits that have been clinically shown to be transformed into beneficial levels of ellagic acid in the human body.
Small amounts of Ellagic Acid is found in other foods (such as strawberries, blackberries, walnuts, pecans, pomegranates, and cranberries), however, raspberries have been found to have up to six times more.
Ellagitannins can also act as antibacterial agents. In order for bacteria to replicate, they require an enzyme called gyrase. Ellagitannins inhibit gyrase activity, so replication is restricted. Resistance to this type of antibacterial action is very difficult, making it a very desirable alternative.
Ellagitannins have antiviral activity also. Viruses do not have the ability to replicate, instead they must insert themselves into a host cell. This requires an enzyme called integrase, which is inhibited by ellagitannins.
Ellagitannins can also reduce blood sugar levels.
Antioxidants: Stopping Free Radical Cellular Damage
Mutation of cells is often caused by free radical damage - responsible for much ill health, from common symptoms of aging, to potentially terminal cancerous diseases.
The cells in your body are in a continual cycle of birth (replication) and death. This replication is naturally controlled to ensure no mistakes (cancerous mutations) occur prior to cell division. If mutations are detected, the cell is instructed to die or not reproduce, thus protecting us from cancerous growth. When cells ignore these signals, they become virtually immortal, reproducing indefinitely, while abandoning their intended function.
The cause of mutated cancerous cell growth is free radicals: undesirable products of your metabolic processes, caused by poor or insufficient nutrition, and from exposure to environmental pollutants. Free radicals are the natural consequence of all metabolic processes, during which most of these radicals are extinguished by antioxidants. To control excessive amounts of free radicals your body needs help. Antioxidant supplements are needed to extinguish the radicals and to limit the damage done them.
Science has proven that free radicals are responsible for mutated cell growth. This causes much ill health, from common symptoms of aging to potentially terminal cancerous diseases. Science also has proven that free radical reproduction can be slowed or even stopped with antioxidant supplementation.
Research indicates that raspberry seeds are antibacterial and antiviral, protect DNA, reduces birth defects, prevents harmful transmutations of cholesterol, prevents heart disease, and promotes cellular detoxification. The health benefits of raspberry seeds, including cancer prevention, are described in the American Cancer Society's book "Complimentary and Alternative Cancer Methods".
The American Cancer Society, The Hollings Cancer Institute, and many other health organizations recommend that you eat one cup of fresh raspberries every day. But fresh raspberries are expensive, and difficult to buy when out of season. We have the answer.
Paradigm Breakthrough for Healthy Cells and Longevity
There is no cancer remedy or cure here. The phytonutrient does nothing directly to cancer. Yet there is no cancer growth or propagation. And only healthy cells remain.
We trade "cancer-thinking" for "optimization-thinking"... nurturing of the cells.
