Apricots are a rich source of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that may help reduce the risk of certain cancers by neutralizing harmful free radicals in the body. Additionally, the fiber content in apricots supports digestive health, which can contribute to a lower risk of colorectal cancer and promote overall well-being.
High in Antioxidants: Apricots are rich in antioxidants, particularly beta-carotene, vitamin C, and phytochemicals like lutein and zeaxanthin. These antioxidants help neutralize free radicals in the body, reducing oxidative stress and the risk of cellular damage that can lead to cancer.
Rich in Fiber: Apricots provide dietary fiber, which supports digestive health and regular bowel movements. A healthy digestive system can help reduce the risk of colorectal cancer by preventing the buildup of potentially harmful substances in the colon.
Nutrient Density: Apricots are nutrient-dense, supplying essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin A, potassium, and vitamin K. These nutrients support overall health and can contribute to a strong immune system, which plays a crucial role in cancer prevention.

Research: Obviously, food choices and diet are critical to a healthy everyday life, and even more so when fighting cancer at any stage. Now, after a decade of cancer-specific nutrition research and our own FightBack Foods® products development, we are more convinced than ever that intentional nutrition is imperative for any cancer battle. Importantly, our research over the past decade drove us to appreciate more than ever that naturally occurring nutrients found in a variety of foods, can greatly assist in the battle against cancer.
Thus, we have attached primarily PUBMED sourced information about each ingredient used in our first product - FightBack Foods® Bites, and some of the relevant research that rationalizes each one’s use in our products.
