Taking in consideration cancer is one of the deadliest diseases that exists on the planet. Scientists are trying to find a cure for it all the time, so they can finally put an end to it. The herb that we are going to present you in this article, is one of those cures, and it can kill up to 98% of cancer cells in just 16 hours.
According to some researches which were published in the “Life Science”, artemisinin, which is a “Sweet wormwood” or “Artemisia Annua” derivative, has been used in the Chinese medicine and it is able to kill 98% of lung cancer cells in less than 16 hours.
When the herb is used on its own, it can reduce lung cancer cells up to 28%, but when it is combined with iron, it can completely “erase” cancer. In the experiment, “Artemisia Annua” had no any impact on healthy lung cells.
This kind of herb has been used in the past as a antimalarial remedy, which was very powerful and nowadays, it has been proved that it is also very effective in the fight against cancer.
While conducting the study, scientists added iron, which later attached to the lung tissue, especially to those cells which were infected by cancer, artemisinine selectively attacked “bad” cells, and left “good” cells untouched.
In the conclusion of the researches, which was conducted in the cancer laboratory at the University of California was stated the following: “In general, our results show that artemisinin stops ‘E2F1’ transcription factor and intervenes in destruction of lung cancer cells, meaning it presents a transcription way according to which artemisinin controls reproductive cancer cell growth”.
The iron deposits in cancer cells which are with special receptors that help in cell division. The normal cells have these receptors as well, but the combination of iron and artemisinin can target the cancer cells.
Numerous conducted experiments have proven that the combination of iron and artemisinin is effective in destroying cancer cells. This exact combination was used for thousands of years in China, in the treatment of malaria.
The malaria parasite cannot survive when artemisinine is present, as it is rich in iron, and the first scientists that discovered this were the bio-engineers Henry Lai and Narendra Singh from the University of Washington.
According to their research, it has been proved that cancer cells undergo an apoptosis, or self-destruction. Until this moment it has been very difficult to get the extract for more acceptable prices, but as more and more interest is shown by the people in this herb, the prices could get lower.
