Guinea Hen Weed & Cancer

It is no secret that toxins found in our environment, food and water can become fatal to the human body. One of the most increasingly common diseases that seems to be starting a epidemic is the development of bodily cancers.To make matters even worse for Americans, major segments of the medical and scientific communities tend to deny, disregard, or try to reduce attention from the benefits of positive NATURAL substances that can help to prevent and cure cancer naturally.

Guinea Hen Weed is a herb that grows extremely well in the more tropical regions of Africa, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean islands. Its botanical name is Petiveria alliacea and It has numerous other aliases such as garlic weed, guinea hen leaf, guinea henweed, calauchin, congo root, anamu, apacin, apacina, hedionda, kuan, lemuru, mucura, pipi, tipi, verbena and zorrillo.

For most herbs, users must normally settle for testimonies and traditions of families and village doctors for benefits and uses of them. Over the past century however, modern scientific research has been intensely studying many compounds that have been discovered in the plant: flavanoids, triterpenes, steroids, and sulfur compounds. The research published on Guinea Hen Weed now validates many of the historical and traditional uses of this herb.

Guinea Hen Weed has recently had its anti-cancerous activity included within reports by the University of Illinois, in Chicago. Researchers there have found that of the 20 compounds isolated from the plant, several of which had never been identified in nature before, some were similar to compounds found in garlic, which is also known to have medicinal properties. Lab investigations have also shown that Guinea Hen Weed retards the growth of several strains of cancer and leukemia cells and was one of only 34 plants identified with active properties specifically against cancer. Several phytochemicals in Guinea Hen Weed like astilbin and dibenzyl trisulphide have been documented to directly kill cancer cells. Research showed further that the compounds in Guinea Hen Weed were able to differentiate between normal cells and cancer cells, killing only the cancerous cells. Also, other substances in the herb stimulate the body's natural defenses.
