Anti-caner fruits (Super Fruits)

See the benefits of each fruit just below the picture

- Grapes:

  • Grape Seed Extract Lowers the Growth Rate of Certain Cancers by up to 67%
  • Cancer cells require a specific environment, blood supply and metabolic nutrients to be able to propagate. If any of these pathways are disrupted, cancer cell death occurs.
  • The scientists commented "Cancer cells are fast-growing cells,not only that, but they are necessarily fast growing. When conditions exist in which they can't grow, they die.
  • GSE killed the cancercells by knocking out one of several vulnerable paths necessary for growth, and left the healthy tissue untouched.
  • Dr. Rajesh Agarwal and his team determined that grape seed extract(GSE)lowered the rate of progression of deadly tumors and DNA damage while inducing apoptosis (programmed cell death) of the cancer cells. Mice have been used to study specific cancer cell lines because they parallel tumor progression and metastasis in a manner similar to humans.

- Mangosteen:

  • It is a powerful antioxidant. The rind of the Mangosteen fruit, which is thick and purplish in color is loaded with zanthones which is a very powerful antioxidant. 
  • Scientists claim that Mangosteen has been very effective in ;
  1. stomach cancer
  2. certain breastcancer cultures
  3. lung cancer   and
  4. one form of leukemia.

-Blue berries:

  • Blueberries are rich in anthocyanins, which research is showing may prevent or stop the rapid growth of cancer cells. 
  • Colon Cancer; One type of anthocyanin that blueberries contain is called pterostilbene, which may fight colon cancer. Blue berries also useful in treating Esophageal Cancer, Liver cancer , Lung cancer And in
  •  Pediatric Blood Vessel Tumors- Angiogenic tumors, found in blood vessels, are among the most common tumors in infants. 
-Goji Berrie:
  • Goji berries make tumor cells more susceptible to radiation and immuno-therapy. They also inhibit the development of cancer cells and activate mechanisms which induce cancer cells to commit suicide.
  • Goji berries also have compounds rich in vitamin A that may have anti-aging benefits. These special compounds help boost immune function, protect vision, and may help prevent heart disease.
  • Other studies using goji berry juice founds benefits in mental well-being, and calmness, athletic performance, happiness, quality of sleep, and feelings of good health. 


  • Avocados contain the highest amount of the carotenoid lutein of all commonly eaten fruits,these carotenoids and tocopherols inhibited the growth of prostate cancer cells.Interestingly, when researchers used lutein alone,the cancer cells were unaffected.
  • Avocados contain vitamins C, E, K, folate and even B6.Most of these vitamins help fight against free radicals that can damage cells in the body,and the rest help with energy and focus.
  • Folate is excellent for cellular and tissue maintenance;even more so during periods of rapid cell division such as pregnancy and infancy.
  • Lastly,the avocado even contains fiber.Fiber is essential for digestion,and also helps with diabetes and heart disease.


  • Like grape juice, Noni juice contains a whole slew of cancer fighting nutrients.
  • It kills cancer cells (the anthraquinone damnacanthal and the trace element selenium),
  • It stops the spread of cancer (beta sitosterol, noni-ppt and limonene),
  • It stimulates the white blood cells and other parts of the immunity system (polysaccharides) and takes part in a process that enlarges cell membranes so they can better absorb nutrients (proxeronine aids in creating xeronine).  

-Dragon fruit:

  • Dragon fruit is also rich in antioxidants,including beta carotene and vitamin C. 
  • Also have Antioxidants that protect your cells from damage by free radicals. The damage to your cells caused by these free radicals can lead to cancer.
  • Obesity is a risk factor for cancer.
  • Balancing your calorie intake to help you attain and maintain a healthy weight can reduce your risk of cancer.
  • The dragon fruit is a low-energy dense food, meaning it has few calories compared to its serving size.
  • This can help you limit your calorie intake without leaving you feeling hungry, aiding in weight control. One dragon fruit has just 60 calories.

-Acai Berries:

  • The best known evidence of acai berries fighting cancer can be found in the basic science of the fruit itself.
  • Like blueberries and strawberries,acai berries are high in antioxidants and phyt chemicals.
  • Antioxidant activity is key in neutralizing potentially harmful free radicals inside the body.
  • Acai berries are considered a power food.
  • Rich in B vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids, they also contain oleic acid (omega-9), a beneficial fatty acid, sometimes mistaken as an essential fatty acid.
  • The Soursop is a flowering,evergreen tree native to tropical regions of the world.It also contains a long, prickly green fruit which happens to kill cancer up to 10,000 times more effectively than strong chemotherapy drugs, all without the nasty side effects and without harming healthy cells. 
  • Besides being a cancer remedy,graviola is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for both bacterial and fungal infections,is effective against internal parasites and worms,lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders. 
  • Soursop leaf and bark (Powder), cure diabetes by regulating blood sugar, which shows its high effectiveness in endocrine commitments:
  1. liver
  2. kidney
  3. thyroid
  4. pancreas
  5. ovary
  6. prostate
  7. intestines
  8. muscle relaxant smooth(heart)
  9. gall bladder
  10. appendix and fights lung cancer or Lewis
  11. breast cancer and brain tumors
  12. hypotensive
  13. anti-spasmodic
  14. vasodilator
  15. eliminates dust mites that cause asthma and bronchial diseases.

  • The leaf tea cure liver problems,improves the function of the pancreas.It is effective to deworm children,malaria cure,indicated to raise the defenses in patients with chemotherapy and also for people with HIV (AIDS).

-Apple :

  • The peels of apple,which have been shown to possess exceptionally high concentrations of antioxidants, are often discarded.
  • It is evaluated that the antiproliferative effects of apple peel extract (APE) in variety of cancer cell types. APE obtained from organic Gala apples,imparted significant reduction in the viability of a variety of cancer cell lines.
  • Further,experimental study shows a significant decrease in growth and clonogenic survival of human prostate carcinoma and cells and breast carcinoma cells.
  •  In addition,APE treatment resulted in a marked increase in maspin,a tumor suppressor protein that negatively regulates cell invasion, metastasis,and angiogenesis.
  • It is suggested that APE possesses strong antiproliferative effects against cancer cells,and apple peels should not be discarded from the diet.


  • Citrus consumption may protect against cancer.
  • Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells.It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. 
  • It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers,including colon,breast, prostate,lung and pancreas .
  • The compounds of Lemon tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin,a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world,slowing the growth of cancer cells.
  • What is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.
  • You can eat the fruit in different ways:
  • You can eat the pulp,juice press,prepare drinks,sorbets,pastries etc.
  • It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types.
  • Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer.
  • It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi,effective against internal parasites and worms.
  • It regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant,combats stress and nervous disorders.


  • Pomegranate juice has already shown cytotoxicity to a variety of cancer cell.
  • Pomegranate extract inhibits the growth of lung,skin,colon and prostate tumors. 
  • the researchers identified the following active groups of ingredients in pomegranate juice that had a molecular impact on cell adhesion and migration in metastatic prostate cancer cells: phenylpropanoids,hydrobenzoic acids, flavones and conjugated fatty acids.
  • Pomegranates are the richest source of a natural substance called ellagic acid.
  • According to master herbalist and certified nutritionist Donald Yance in his book HERBAL MEDICINE, HEALING & CANCER, ellagic acid "inhibits cancer formation and is believed to inhibit cancer mutation by latching onto DNA-masking sensitive sites on the genetic material that might otherwise be occupied by harmful chemicals.
  • Ellagic acid is particularly effective in the inhibition of lung cancer caused by tobacco.

-Straw berries:

  • Strawberries have the potential to prevent esophageal cancer.
  • Esophageal cancer is the third most common gastrointestinal cancer and the sixth most frequent cause of cancer death in the world.
  • Ohio State University researchers found that strawberries slowed the growth of dysplastic or precancerous,lesions in about 30 people who consumed the fruit for six months.
  • The freeze-dried strawberries are about 10 times as concentrated as fresh, but the study's lead researcher suggested people could still benefit from eating whole strawberries on a daily basis.
  • So far, no one has been able to pinpoint exactly what it is in the berries that's battling cancer cells.


  • Also know as kiwi and Chinese gooseberry is a native of Asia rich in vitamin C,fiber and potassium and also contains significant vitamin A and vitamin E.
  • In addition,kiwifruit has other biologically active components,including lutein,beta-carotene,fisetin,caffeic acid,alpha-linolenic acid,actinidin, coumarin,kiwellin,actinidin,quercitrin and ursolic acid.
  • Kiwifruit has been shown to improve the cholesterol profile of human subjects.
  • Kiwifruit has also been shown to have antioxidant,laxative,antifungal, antiviral,antibacterial and cardiovascular protective effects. 
  • Kiwifruit has been shown to contain an antimutagenic component, helping to prevent the mutations of genes that may initiate the cancer process.
  • The presence of glutathione may account for the reduction.
  • When nitrates are ingested,a process called nitrosation can occur, in which free radicals nitrosamines are formed that may lead to the formation of gastric or other cancers.
  • Kiwi has been demonstrated to aid in the prevention of nitrosation. 
  • In vitro test with cultured mammalian-cell lines,kiwifruit extract was found to inhibit melanoma or skin cancer.
  • Kiwifruit is ranked as having the fourth highest natural antioxidant potential√≥next to the red fruits containing high levels of beta carotene.
  • Lutein, an important phytochemical found in kiwifruit, has been linked to the prevention of prostate and lung cancer.
  • kiwifruit is recognized by the FDA as an excellent source of dietary fiber, studies indicate that it contains another not-yet-isolated compound that accelerates digestive transit time even faster than dietary fiber alone important for colorectal cancer prevention.The benefit of this laxative action is to decrease the build-up of cancer-promoting metabolites.
  • Kiwifruit is one of the few fruits that are green at maturity, and chlorophyll is responsible for that color. Several studies have suggested that chlorophyllin,a derivative of chlorophyll, is an inhibitor of liver carcinogenesis.
