Turmeric contains an active compound called curcumin, which has demonstrated potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in numerous studies. These properties may help reduce the risk of cancer by suppressing chronic inflammation and protecting cells from oxidative damage.
Curcumin's Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Turmeric contains an active compound called curcumin, which has potent anti-inflammatory properties. Chronic inflammation is associated with an increased risk of cancer, and curcumin's ability to reduce inflammation may help mitigate this risk.
Antioxidant Effects: Curcumin is also a powerful antioxidant, which means it can help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body. Reducing oxidative stress and cellular damage caused by free radicals can lower the risk of cancer development.
Potential to Inhibit Cancer Cell Growth: Some laboratory and animal studies have suggested that curcumin may have the ability to inhibit the growth and spread of cancer cells, particularly in cancers like breast, colon, and pancreatic cancer. These studies indicate that curcumin may disrupt key processes in cancer cell development.

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)
