Monk fruit, specifically its extract called mogroside, is a natural sweetener that contains antioxidants. Antioxidants can help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, potentially reducing the risk of cellular damage that can lead to cancer.
Low-Calorie Sweetener: Monk fruit extract is calorie-free and does not raise blood sugar levels, making it a suitable alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. Reducing sugar intake can indirectly contribute to cancer prevention by helping to maintain a healthy body weight and reducing the risk of obesity-related cancers.
Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Some studies suggest that compounds found in monk fruit may have anti-inflammatory properties. Chronic inflammation is associated with an increased risk of cancer, and reducing inflammation through dietary choices may help mitigate this risk.
Potential for Reducing Sugar Intake: By using monk fruit as a sweetener, individuals may consume fewer high-sugar products and processed foods that can contribute to obesity and related health issues. Reducing sugar intake can indirectly support cancer prevention by helping to maintain a healthy body weight and overall health.

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.
