Rosemary studies show the powerful potential of phyto-chemical compounds present for both prevention and treatment of cancer. Rosemary polyphenols were observed to induce chemopreventive effects. Rosemary Extract (RE), Carnosic Acid (CA) and Rosmarinic Acid (RA) have all shown potent and effective anticancer properties. Rosemary extracts exhibit many beneficial biological bioactivities, such as hepatoprotective, antifungal, insecticide, antioxidant and antibacterial, each important to fight cancer.
Antioxidant Properties: Rosemary contains several natural antioxidants, such as rosmarinic acid and carnosol. These compounds help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, reducing oxidative stress and cellular damage that can lead to cancer development.
Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Some studies suggest that rosemary may have anti-inflammatory properties. Chronic inflammation is linked to an increased risk of cancer, so reducing inflammation through dietary choices may help mitigate this risk.
Potential for Inhibiting Cancer Cell Growth: Laboratory and animal studies have indicated that rosemary extracts, particularly carnosol, may have the ability to inhibit the growth and spread of cancer cells. 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.
