Otherwise known as green-blue algae, is used to help boost the immune system. Spirulina’s high chlorophyll content may explain its ability to stop cancer colonies from forming. One of many health food brands that sells spirulina powder is BoKU®.
All cruciferous vegetables (Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, bok choy, kale) contain cancer-fighting properties, but broccoli contains the most amount of sulforaphane. This is a particularly potent compound that may boost the body’s protective enzymes and flush out cancer-causing chemicals. Try adding broccoli into your diet more regularly, even if it ends up on your pizza.
Tomatoes contain lycopene, a carotenoid that gives this fruit their red hue, and has been found to stop some cancer cell growth. In fact, the biggest benefits come from cooked tomatoes (pasta sauce), since the heating process increases the amount of lycopene the body is able to absorb. Beware of processed tomato products–these will have significantly less health benefits.
Blackberries, in particular, contain very high concentrations of phytonutrients called anthocyanins. They may slow down the growth of premalignant cells and keep new blood vessels from forming (and potentially feeding a cancerous tumor).
This may be surprising, but the phytonutrients in garlic have been found to halt the formation of carcinogens formed in the stomach (and in the intestines, in certain conditions). In fact, the Iowa Women’s Health Study found that women with the highest amounts of garlic in their diets had a 50 percent lower risk of certain colon cancers than women who ate the least.
