Grape Seed Extract Outperforms Chemo in Killing Advanced Cancer Cells

Patients with colorectal cancer may benefit from the cancer-growth-inhibiting power of grape seed extract. Researchers from the University of Colorado Cancer Center report that the more aggressive the cancer cells are, the more effective the grape extract works at targeting and stopping the growth. Grape seed extract is amazing in that it attacks the cancer cells but leaves the healthy cells untouched. This is a departure from conventional cancer treatments that destroy all of the cells in an attempt to stop the spread of cancer.



Actually, the power of grape seed extract seems quite remarkable in this research, which was published in the journal Cancer Letters. Molly Derry, a doctoral candidate in the lab of Rajesh Agarwal, PhD, and investigator at the CU Cancer Center and her team saw that while doses of chemotherapy only increase with more severe cancer cases, such as a stage IV instead of stage II, the amount of grape seed extract required actually decreased.



Derry explained:



“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.”



“We’ve known for quite a while that the bioactive compounds in grape seed extract selectively target many types of cancer cells. This study shows that many of the same mutations that allow colorectal cancer cells to metastasize and survive traditional therapies make them especially sensitive to treatment with GSE.”




Amazing Grapes



One of many berry types, grapes were introduced to America over 300 years ago. There are over 8,000 grape varieties with the main types being American and European. With only 100 calories per cup, grapes are a great source of vitamins K and C and are loaded with antioxidants.



Grape seed extract is made from the seed of the grape and is beneficial for a number of cardiovascular conditions such as poor circulation and high cholesterol. The extract has also been found useful in the treatment of diabetes-related eye disease, loss of vision due to aging, and swelling associated with injury. Currently, GSE is being studied in the treatment of leukemia and Alzheimer’s disease.



Interestingly, past research also points to berries as a solution for colorectal cancer and many other cancers. In one study, the growth of new tumors in mice fed black raspberry decreased by 45 percent and the total number of tumors went down 60 percent. Other research found that foods rich in flavanols (berries, grapes, apples) also reduces the risk of colon cancer.
Advanced Cancer and Grape Seed Extract



The bioactive compounds in grape seed extract selectively target many types of cancer cells. With an increase in colorectal cancer, the findings of this study are timely. By the time most people are diagnosed with the disease, it is in the advanced stages. But thankfully, as mentioned, researchers found that it required less grape seed extract to kill advanced cancer cells than it did cells in the early stage. It is thought that the extract kills cancer cells by a process of oxidative stress.

    I use GSE in my handcrafted moisturizers, as a natural preservative. Therefore, I'm familiar with at least one of GSE's uses, however the article fails to mention how the study was performed. In vitro or in vivo? Also there's a failure to describe how GSE is administered. Were human trials done or is research still in animal trial phase? There are a lot of compounds that can kill cancer, but not many of them are safe for human consumption. Please clarify

    MY cat has mamory gland cancer and a large tumor. Does anyone know if Grape seed extract is toxic for cats? I would love to save my cat without having to subject her to suffering of chemo.

  3. The Budwig protocol heals cancer in humans and animals. Do not give your cat chemo or put it to sleep without trying Budwig. you can email me if you want more info on Budwig.

  4. Josh Bare

    and in this case, she's right. thc kills cancer cells discriminately a la grape seed extract. there are lots of studies on this should one want to find them.

  5. Michael Valentine

    The use of the descriptor 'GSE' is unfortunate and confusing, as so many are familiar with Grapefruit Seed Extract, branded, sold and commonly referred to as GSE. While the article itself makes it clear, an official clarification is in order. Both are powerful and unique gifts in their own right…

  6. Craig Andrews

    Been taking for years now. Cancer free.

    Also people need to look up Black Salve as shown to be highly effective killing cancer.

  7. Kevin Brown

    grapes grow quite easily with a southern exposure…eveyone should plant one for your area that has seeds…and occassionally chew the seeds while eating the fuit…they start producing fuit after about 3 years,so just be willing to wait and see

  8. We see reports like this almost every day, only to never hear about them again. The truth remains that no naturally occurring substance will every become a cancer treatment because it cannot be patented and result in an expensive treatment that makes money.

  9. Josh Vaughn

    Jhoe Hill — cracks me up when people spend all the dam time they do online, and they STILL don't bother to read the science behind why cannabis is curing cancer. And many other things. I mean, c'mon … its all right in front of you. You'll die of it before you catch on.

    Tamara St John Budwig is the flax seed oil and cottage cheese ?
    @Fay Why would i put my cat to sleep? she is perfectly fine except for the tumor. She is not in pain, she is acting perfectly normal. so im not going to kill my cat for no reason.

  11. Our health sciences company has had a product based on GSE for years, and huge numbers of people have testified to its effectiveness at powerhouse antioxidant protection of the cells. Check out this short video and you can certainly contact me personally if you have any questions.

  12. would you want to be put down if you had cancer—would you put ur kid down –I hate when people say things like that –some of us really love our pets and we would do anything to help them until we can't anymore

  13. Marishka Noyb

    I was wondering the same thing….maybe REAL Concord Grape Seeds not that seedlees store bought stuff they call grapes,the ones that grow wild and FREE

  14. Would love to know the amounts used for their study. I get 75 mg of grape seed extract in my daily regimen now in an isotonic form. I don't have cancer, but would still be good to know.

  15. At present there are over 12,000 research papers field on cannabis. Go to pubmed.gov and search cannabis. – Should you ever come down with an in-operable brain tumor be sure to get cannabis oil to shrink the tumor and kill the cancer. If cannabis is illegal in your state then google ( Cancerous tumors are you at risk wakeupgethealthy ) to learn about natural alternatives that works. – Help us get the word out.

  16. Not always true Toby (ie Taxol comes from the bark of a yew tree, and vincristine comes from the periwinkle plant). It is one thing to kill cells in a petri dish (your spit would also kill these same cells), and another to show efficacy in multiple clinical trials. That being said, I personally recommend diet and lifestyle changes to ALL of my patients undergoing standard treatment….

  17. there are thousands of studies on thousands of ailments, but if they are strictly under ground then perhaps you need to ask yourself, Why? And the answer is never correct when" they say" is the premise and the Big Pharms. oppose them vigorously. Do your research above ground in the light that will reveal fraud.

    Ok so these comments are funny….chemo kills you but its ok to those of you whom think your government and big Pharma isnt killing really!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chemo kills

  19. I have not been able to get cannabis oil cause it is e legal here in ID. I found the next best thing. I was with chronic pain for 6 months and just last month I found this that has helped me big time. In just 3 days I am just about all out of pain. This science Breakthrough is based on 4 Organic botanical Seeds of which one of them is Grape Seed plus it has Black Seed too. This formula can help with chronic pain, chronic psoriasis or any type of skin condition, Tumors, colds, flu. This one guy had a tumor the size of a base ball and after drinking the botanical seed formula its just about all gone. http://youtu.be/9AUFW9dxRWw – Then to learn more click here: http://yourvipinvitation.com/keytohealth – For people that need more proof that this really works here are 937 published science papers on Black Seed http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Black+Seed – This seed has over 3,000 history on record of being used. Help us get the word out.
