  • Spinach carotenoids may offer help in taking on human prostate cancer, while another by-product, kaempferol, is being looked at with regard to lowering ovarian cancer risk. Spinach extracts are also being researched for their ability to inhibit stomach cancer cells from dividing.
  • Bananas: The high potassium levels in bananas replace electrolytes that can be lost during chemo treatment.  They are full of pectin, which soothes the stomach, and their natural fiber sweeps toxins from the intestinal tract, improving bowel function and lowering the risk of colon cancer.
  • Blueberries/Strawberries reduce the inflammation in our bodies helping us to ward off cancers, heart disease and diabetes.
