Dr. Nixon began studying Ellagic Acid in 1993, recently published results:
Cervical Cancer Cells – HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) exposed to Ellagic Acid from Red Raspberries experienced apoptosis (normal cell death).
Ellagic Acid leads to G1 arrest of cancer cells, thus inhibiting and stopping mitosis (cancer cell division)
Ellagic Acid from Red Raspberries prevents destruction of the P53 gene by cancer cells. P53 is regarded as the safeguard of mutagenic activity in cervical cells.
The tests reveal similar results for breast, pancreas, esophageal, skin, colon, and prostate cancer cells. In addition, positive responses are observed in: periodontal disease, radiation induced chromosomal damage, slowing the degenerative process of aging, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetic retinopathy.
