Herbal Burdock Kills Breast Cancer Cells In Vivo and Vitro

By Kyle J. Norton

Scientists may have found a whole herb which processes a significant effect in reducing risk and treatment of breast cancer with no side effects, according to some studies.

Breast cancer is a chronic condition characterized by cell growth controllably and disorderly in the breast tissue.

Most cases of breast cancer start at the cells on the surface of the inner lining tissue of the breast. At this stage, most patients may experience symptoms of lump on part of the breast, swelling, nipple pain and redness and scaliness. If you have some of the above which can not resolve within 3 weeks, please check with your doctor to rule out the possibility of breast cancer.

At the advanced stage, after penetrating into the deeper layers of the breast, malignant cells may travel a distance far the way from the breast to infect other healthy tissue and organs, through the blood and fluids circulation.

In this stage, the breast tumor is growing large enough to suppress the nearby healthy tissue and nerve cells, causing severe localized symptoms and pain.

The liver, brain, bones, or lungs are most commonly organs for breast cancer metastasis.

According to a statistic provided by the cancer society, women in Canada have a lifetime risk of breast cancer incidence rates of 11%. In other words, 11% of Canadian women will develop breast cancer by the time they reach 90 years of age.

Only 20% of breast cancers in Canada are diagnosed in women under 50, compared to almost 30% diagnosed in women over 70 years of age.

The 5 years survival rate of breast cancer is 100% compared to 89% in the 10 years survival rate.

Therefore, early diagnosis is a key factor to improve the survival rate and prevent a long-term painful
treatment with many unpleasant side effects if the cancer is found in the later stage.

Women are encouraged to examine their breast every month if you found any changes that not in 3 not recover within 3 weeks, please check with your doctor as soon as possible.

Burdock is a plant in the group of biennial thistles, genus Arctium, belonging to the family Asteraceae, native to the Euro.

The plant has been used over thousands of years in China and other traditional herbal medicine as a diuretic, diaphoretic, and a blood purifying agent and to treat wounds and infections stomach ulcers and other digestive problems.

The chemical ingredients of herbal Burdock include guaianolide, arctinone, arctinal, methyl arctate,11-tridecadien-3,5,7,9-tetraynde-hydrocostus lactone,dehydrodihydrocostus lactone, 3-octenoic acid, 3-hexenoic acid etc.

In the finding the natural compound with no side effects, researchers examine the anticancer effect of arctigenin (ATG), a natural lignan product of Herbal Burdock (Arctium lappa L.), in human breast cancer MDA-MB-231 cells.

Application of arctigenin (ATG) showed potency in inhibiting the MDA-MB-231 cell growth by inducing apoptosis.

ATG stimulated the breast cancer cell death programming by reducing the ration expression of Bax/Bcl-2.
Furthermore, ATG also activated the overexpression of free radical in the induction of cytotoxicity to the breast cancer cell line.

These results suggested that ATG induced cancer apoptosis through many different mechanisms, including the pathways in stimulating the expression of ROS that causes cytotoxicity and promoting cell death.

Additionally, in the reaffirming the anti-breast cancer of herbal burdock, researchers conducted an experiment to evaluate the anti-cancer properties of Arctiin, a major lignan constituent of Arctium lappa (Burdock) in animal models.

In human breast cancer MCF-7 cells, injection of Arctiin demonstrated a significant effect in the inhibition of the breast cancer cells associated with associated with the decreasing the function of the protein in promoting the cell cycle division.

Moreover, application of Arctiin also increased the function of the protein associated with the suppressor in acting to inhibit cell proliferation and tumor development.

Taken together, Herbal Burdock may be considered a functional herb for the prevention and an adjunct therapy combined with the primary medicine for the treatment of breast cancer.

However, further data collection large example size and multi-centers studies performed with human consumption of the whole food or its bioactive compounds during the course of the disease will be necessary to complete the picture of herbal Burdock anti-cancer possibilities.
