I’m always using natural herbs and spices in the kitchen. As I’ve reported before, seasoning your food this way can boost flavor and nutrition.
Now, a new study found one of my favorite spices can combat one of the deadliest, most aggressive forms of breast cancer.
In fact, research shows this culinary spice can CRUSH triple-negative breast cancer cells and help SUPPORT the immune system.
Here’s everything you need to know…
New, natural ally
Triple-negative breast cancer occurs when you don’t have receptors for the hormones estrogen or progesterone, and produce little-to-no HER2 protein. (HER2 protein receptors help promote healthy breast cells.)
This makes the cancer especially brutal—and incredibly hard to treat. In fact, there’s no available targeted therapy for this particular type of breast cancer. As a result, it has a much higher death rate.
So, researchers turned to alternative options.
That’s where cardamom—our culinary spice—comes into the picture. Or more specifically, a natural compound within the spice (and other plants in the ginger family) called cardamonin.
Researchers from Florida A&M University examined cardamonin’s effect on cells from Caucasian and African American women.
They analyzed its influence on the programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) gene. (In triple-negative breast cancer patients, this gene is overactive, allowing the disease to bypass the immune system [your body’s natural defense system].)
Ultimately, cardamonin CRUSHED the cancer cells and stopped them from bypassing the patient’s immune system.
Powerful protection… finally
This research suggests that a safe, non-toxic agent could help enhance cancer treatment… without the harsh side effects. That’s exciting stuff!
(I’m actually going be recommending this spice to my patients with triple negative breast cancer right away. I’ll start them on 4,000 mg of cardamom capsules, twice daily. And will advise them to add the spice to their cooking. Of course, if you know anyone who might benefit from this suggestion, like all my newsletters, please do not hesitate to share.)
Of course, cardamom isn’t a common culinary spice here in the U.S.
But it’s popular in many dishes around the world—and especially in the Indian subcontinent.
It’s a spice that can go from sweet to savory without missing a beat, making it extremely versatile and tasty. And research suggests it holds potential health benefits, to boot.
