Brazil nuts are a rich source of selenium, a trace mineral that plays a crucial role in antioxidant defense mechanisms. Selenium helps protect cells from oxidative damage, reducing the risk of cancer development. However, it's important to consume Brazil nuts in moderation, as excessive selenium intake can have adverse effects on health.

  1. Selenium Content: Brazil nuts are exceptionally high in selenium, a trace mineral that plays a crucial role in antioxidant defense mechanisms. Selenium is incorporated into enzymes that help protect cells from oxidative damage, which can contribute to cancer development. Adequate selenium intake may help reduce the risk of certain cancers, such as prostate cancer.

  2. Antioxidant Properties: In addition to selenium, Brazil nuts contain other antioxidants like vitamin E. These antioxidants help neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress, which is linked to cancer development.

  3. Nutrient Density: Brazil nuts are a nutrient-dense food, providing not only selenium but also healthy fats, protein, and fiber. A balanced diet that includes nutrient-rich foods supports overall health and may contribute to a lower risk of chronic diseases, including cancer.


E and several B complex vitamins like B1 (Thiamin), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), and B9 (Folate)

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)
