Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins, which have been linked to reducing the growth and spread of certain cancer cells. Additionally, their high fiber content can help maintain a healthy digestive system, potentially lowering the risk of colorectal cancer and promoting overall well-being.
Rich in Antioxidants: Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins, which give them their deep blue color. These antioxidants help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, reducing oxidative stress, and minimizing the damage to DNA and cells, which can contribute to cancer development.
Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Chronic inflammation is associated with an increased risk of cancer. Blueberries contain compounds like quercetin and resveratrol, which have anti-inflammatory properties and may help mitigate the chronic inflammation that can promote cancer growth.
Potential to Inhibit Tumor Growth: Some laboratory and animal studies suggest that compounds found in blueberries may inhibit the growth and proliferation of cancer cells, particularly in breast, colon, and ovarian cancers. These compounds may disrupt key processes in cancer cell development.

Disclaimer: While the organic ingredients contained within FightBack Foods® have been studied to determine their practical potential for having anti-cancer properties and directionally beneficial nutrition, we do not provide medical claims or advice in this regard. If you have or suspect you have a medical issue, we recommend you consult with your trusted physician, oncologist, pharmacist, holistic adviser, or other licensed healthcare professional of your choice.
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. Even if you don’t buy our bites, please see the many benefits associated with each ingredient we use, and perhaps find some way to incorporate them into a daily diet with relevant nutrients necessary to assist in anyone’s fight against cancer.
PUBMED: PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics. The United States National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health maintains the database as part of the Entrez system of information retrieval. (As defined by Wikipedia)
