Brief description of shogaol infusion
6-Shogaol is a substance from ginger. Among other things, it is responsible for its pungent taste.
How does Shogaol work against cancer?
6-Shogaol prevents cancer cells from growing into healthy tissue by blocking genes responsible for the spread of cancer. Both local growth and spread by metastasis are inhibited.
Metastases are formations of cancer cells in distant regions and organs. They are very dangerous, and their occurrence usually worsens the cancer prognosis.
Healthy cells have a mechanism that they activate when, for example, they become too sick and can no longer perform their functions. This mechanism leads to self-destruction so that new, healthy cells can grow and the body is not endangered. Cancer cells manage to deactivate this mechanism. Although they are sick and dangerous, they do not self-destruct.
6-Shogaol reactivates self-destruction in cancer cells, thereby preventing tumour growth.
Within cancer cells, cancer stem cells are the cells that are particularly resistant to therapy. Among other things, they are responsible for cancer returning after supposedly successful treatments.
Studies have shown that 6-Shogaol can be successfully used against cancer stem cells.
Against which types of cancer can it be used?
Shogaol is effective against the following cancers:
