“A new study has found that epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant found in green tea, may increase levels of p53, a natural anti-cancer protein known as the “guardian of the genome” for its ability to repair DNA damage or destroy cancerous cells.” [Source: Medicalexpress.com]
The green tea compound EGCG forms an important component of the cutting-edge micronutrient combination used by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in their studies on the natural control of cancer. EGCG has multifaceted actions in cancer prevention and carcinogenesis. As well as being important for stimulating the production of glutathione S-transferase, an enzyme that plays a key role in the body’s defense against cancer, it works in synergy with other micronutrients such as vitamin C, lysine, and proline, in simultaneously controlling multiple mechanisms in cancer growth and spread.
Studies conducted at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have proven that by inhibiting the action of collagen-digesting enzymes and the growth of new blood vessels to tumors, a specific micronutrient combination containing EGCG is effective in preventing the spread of cancer in the body. Independent research has confirmed the ability of supplements containing EGCG to prevent cancers of the prostate and other organs.
