100% PURE ORGANIC SEEDLESS RED RASPBERRY FREEZE DRIED POWDER - KOSHER
New research now suggests that by eating Red Raspberries a person may prevent cancer. Tests conducted at the Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina have revealed that the human body readily absorbs the ellagic acid from red raspberries, thus inhibiting the abnormal division of cells and promoting the normal death of healthy cells. This ELLAGIC ACID has been clinically shown to cause apoptosis (cell death) in certain cancer cells.
Among several significant phytochemicals, Red Raspberries contain ellagic acid, a phenolic compound that has exhibited anti-carcinogenic effects against a wide range of carcinogens in several tissues. Ellagic acid contributes to significant inhibition of colon, esophageal, liver, lung, tongue, and skin cancers in studies with rats and mice, both in vitro and in vivo. By the same token, quercetin, one of the flavanols found in raspberries, has been found to be an effective anticarcinogen against skin, colon, and mammary cancers in rodents. Anthocyanins are also prevalent in red raspberries, working as antioxidants that protect against heart disease and age-related mental decline.
What is interesting to note is the superior efficacy of eating Red Raspberries as opposed to taking the individual phytochemicals in the form of dietary supplements. Although it is not understood as why this is so, it is clear the nutraceutical whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Red Raspberries are distinguished from the blackberry and other dewberries in the same genus in that the fruit separates from the receptacle producing a hollow core. The fruit is medium to bright red depending on the variety, of medium size (3.0 g) and moderately tart with small seeds.
Red Raspberries contribute to a healthy diet, and contain antioxidants and "good" acids the body needs. Red Raspberries are known for their potential to slow cancer cells and tumors.
