Make Mincemeat of Cancer Cells With Turmeric and Resveratrol

Story at-a-glance -

  • The antioxidant resveratrol and curcumin (the active substance of the spice turmeric) both show promise as natural chemosensitizers — substances that can help overcome resistance to chemotherapy drugs
  • Both nutrients have a wide spectrum of anti-cancer actions and functions
  • By modulating inflammatory pathways and inflammatory molecules, resveratrol may also help alleviate many of the debilitating side effects of conventional cancer treatment, such as wasting, fatigue, depression, neuropathic pain, cognitive impairment and sleep disorders
  • Among all nutrients, curcumin has the most evidence-based literature supporting its use against cancer. Researchers have found that curcumin can affect more than 100 different pathways, once it gets into a cell
  • Epigenetic regulation constitutes an important mechanism by which dietary components can selectively activate or inactivate gene expression. Both curcumin and resveratrol induce epigenetic changes
