Peppermint, often consumed as a tea or used as an aromatic herb, contains compounds like menthol and rosmarinic acid, which have shown some promise in laboratory studies for their potential anti-cancer properties. These compounds may have the ability to inhibit the growth of cancer cells and reduce inflammation.
Gastrointestinal Comfort: Peppermint is often used to alleviate digestive discomfort, such as indigestion and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Maintaining digestive health and reducing chronic digestive issues can indirectly support overall well-being and may contribute to cancer prevention by promoting a healthy gut.
Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Some studies suggest that peppermint may have mild anti-inflammatory properties. Chronic inflammation is linked to an increased risk of cancer, so reducing inflammation through dietary choices may help mitigate this risk.
Stress Reduction: Peppermint's aroma and flavor are known to have a calming and stress-reducing effect. Chronic stress can weaken the immune system and increase the risk of various health issues, including cancer. Stress management through relaxation techniques or the consumption of stress-reducing herbs like peppermint may support 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.
PUBMED: PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics.
