Lindernia crustacea L. This study investigated its anticancer properties with high antioxidant activity by reducing power activity, excluding alkylation activity. It explored YKH extract induction of anticancer activity through biomolecular changes in the HCT human colon cancer cell line.
Health-promoting phytonutrients in cruciferous vegetables have been gaining attention for their powerful effects in combating cancer. This review concerns anticancer properties of cruciferous green vegetables of "Brassica" genus such as broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, watercress. The role and mechanisms of action of cruciferous active compounds such as sulforaphane, indolecarbinol, diindolylmethane and phenethyl isothiocyanate in protection against cancer and cancer-fighting are discussed. Losses of nutrients and active compounds during cooking, microwaving, and blanching of vegetables which may be more substantial than commonly perceived are also reviewed.
Flavonoids: Anticancer Properties
Objective : The mango Mangifera indica L. This study aims at the extraction of metabolites from mango seeds and evaluation of the antiproliferative properties on cancer cell lines. Methods : The antiproliferative effects of the ethanol extract of mango seeds were evaluated on the cancer cell line HeLa, CHO cell lines and also on normal human lymphocytes by MTT assay. Fluorescence microscopy, caspase and LDH activity assays were confirming the anticancer potential of fraction 6. Conclusions : Here mango seeds have shown promising potential as a novel source for the isolation of a bioactive compound with anticancer activity. Peer Review.

DOI: Plants have been widely used to treat diseases, owing to the presence of bioactive compounds phytochemicals which play important roles in health promotion and disease prevention. In recent years, advances in chemical extraction techniques, lifestyle and dietary choices for human health have increased the interest in the consumption and study of fruits, vegetables, and foods enriched with bioactive compounds and nutraceuticals. Thousands of dietary phytochemicals, such as flavonoids, phenolic acids, glucosinolates, terpenes and alkaloids, have been identified and categorized further according to a diverse array of biochemical properties. Many of these phytochemicals have been hypothesized to reduce the risk of several pathological conditions which include life threatening diseases such as heart disease and cancer, to name a few.
Flavonoids are plant secondary metabolites. They are mainly classified into four major groups, such as flavanols, flavones, anthocyanidins, and isoflavonoids. Furthermore, they are divided into some subclasses. They are available in dietary foods and they cure various diseases. Certain plants and spices contain flavonoids, which have been commonly used for thousands of years in traditional medicine. Some of the flavonoids have been clinically used in many countries. Baicalein and its glycosides are one among them to have been experimented clinically.
A novel therapeutic anticancer property of raw garlic extract via injection but not ingestion
The fruit and leaf extracts of Averrhoa bilimbi were analyzed for the presence of phytochemicals, flavonoid content and in vitro cytotoxic potential. The methanolic extract of the fruit showed the presence of various phytoconstituents viz flavonoids, saponins, tannins, terpenoids etc. The methanolic fruit extract exhibited significant cytotoxic potential against MCF-7 human breast cancer cell lines with an IC50 value of The present findings indicate that the methanolic fruit extract could be considered as a source of novel anticancer compounds.
Metrics details. Momordica cochinchinensis Cucurbitaceae is a nutritionally and medicinally important fruit restricted to South East Asia with diverse morphological and genetic variations but there is limited information on its medicinal potential. Anticancer activity of M. The cytotoxicity of the cells following treatment with the aril extract was determined using CCK-8 assay. Biochemical and morphological changes were analysed using flow cytometry, confocal and transmission electron microscopy to determine the mechanism of cell death.
Cancer is one of the most devastating diseases, and despite good understanding of the molecular basis of the disease and advances in treatment, globally cancer is still a major cause of death. It has been estimated that 30—40 percent of all cancers can be prevented by lifestyle and dietary measures alone and a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is associated with a reduced risk of many common forms of cancer.
Nutrition and cancer: A review of the evidence for an anti-cancer diet
It has been estimated that 30—40 percent of all cancers can be prevented by lifestyle and dietary measures alone. Obesity, nutrient sparse foods such as concentrated sugars and refined flour products that contribute to impaired glucose metabolism which leads to diabetes , low fiber intake, consumption of red meat, and imbalance of omega 3 and omega 6 fats all contribute to excess cancer risk. Intake of flax seed, especially its lignan fraction, and abundant portions of fruits and vegetables will lower cancer risk. Allium and cruciferous vegetables are especially beneficial, with broccoli sprouts being the densest source of sulforophane. Ascorbic acid has limited benefits orally, but could be very beneficial intravenously. Supplementary use of oral digestive enzymes and probiotics also has merit as anticancer dietary measures. When a diet is compiled according to the guidelines here it is likely that there would be at least a 60—70 percent decrease in breast, colorectal, and prostate cancers, and even a 40—50 percent decrease in lung cancer, along with similar reductions in cancers at other sites.
