You’re never going to hear about this cancer solution at your doctor’s office. And it won’t be talked about on the evening news.
But they’ve been buzzing about the healing powers of this unique cancer-battling compound in natural medicine circles for ages.
In fact, folks at high risk for cancer and those who have already gone a round with the Big C have turned to this potent extract for protection for years.
And many of them have been openly mocked for it. After all, this weird little extract is found of all places in beehives.
But new research finds they were likely right about its cancer-battling abilities all along. Because the study confirms this safe and natural compound has the potential to fight multiple forms of cancer.
In other words, it could give us a much-needed edge in the battle against this deadly disease.
The bee spit solution to cancer
Now I’ve got to warn you, it has a funny name. And an even stranger origin story.
It’s commonly called bee glue. But it’s proper name is propolis. And this nutrient-packed resin is naturally brimming with vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, fatty acids, and more.
Propolis is essentially a mix of… well… bee spit, beeswax, and sap. The bees use the potent “glue” to seal up their hives, hold it together, and protect it from outside threats.
Propolis varies in color based on its source and age. And the different varieties, including green, yellow, brown, and red, have been used by natural healers to treat various ailments… including cancer… for at least hundreds of years.
Each one possesses unique antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal abilities. But the new research focused on the rarer red propolis. It’s the variety most often used for protection against cancer.
Red propolis compounds killed cancer cells
In lab tests, the researchers uncovered two compounds in the red “bee glue” that are toxic to three kinds of common cancer cells…
- brain (glioma)
Even more remarkably, the study found that the standard defense mechanisms cancer cells use to “resist” most treatments DIDN’T WORK against the red propolis.
The cancer’s defenses failed.
The bee glue appeared to disarm the cancer and then destroy it. More research is needed, of course. But the real-world results, combined with these new findings, make red propolis a natural choice for folks looking for a little extra protection against cancer.
All the various forms of propolis are readily available from vitamin shops, health food stores, and online retailers, including Amazon.
You can buy them based on the color, or look for a combo formula that has them all. Just keep in mind that as the rarest form of bee glue, red propolis tends to cost more than the others.
Talk to a naturopathic doctor to see if propolis might be a good fit for you.
Of course propolis isn’t the ONLY healing substance our bee buddies provide us with. Like the potent elixir used to transform a normal bee into a powerful queen which reportedly can supercharge our OWN immune systems.
