The Fruit Extract that Fights Cancer, Aging

You don’t need to resort to harmful cholesterol lowering pharmaceuticals like statin drugs in order to reduce your cholesterol. In fact, something as simple as fruit extracts have been shown to not only lower cholesterol, but provide numerous other health benefits as well.

Examining the effects of bergamot orange extract, a fruit grown in the Mediterranean, researchers studied the effects of the fruit on 200 patients with high levels of blood fats. Participants who ingested 100mg doses of the extract before meals saw a reduction in ‘bad ‘ LDL cholesterol by 39 percent and blood sugars by 22 percent, while ‘good’ HDL cholesterol levels escalated by 41 percent. Lead researcher Dr. Vincenzo Mollace, Professor at the University of Cantanzaro said:

“Bergamot contains extremely large amounts of polyphenols, as compared to other citrus species…two of these, Brutelidin and Metilidin, directly inhibit cholesterol biosynthesis in a similar way to statins and they are not found in any other citrus derivatives.”

Of course fruit extracts offer much more than protecting against diabetes and lowering cholesterol. Papaya leaf extract is but one of the various supplements you should have in your supplement collection. Acting as a natural weight-loss promoter, papaya leaf extract contains powerful enzymes which help to keep you thin by effectively breaking down and processing starches, carbohydrates, and proteins. In addition, antioxidants and enzymes found within papaya leaf extract help to reduce the amount of oxidation ignited by free radicals, leading to a healthy, young look. Similarly, the extract has been shown to be a good therapeutic agent for protection against gastric ulcer and oxidative stress.

The beneficial properties surrounding papaya have been known for generations, but they are now just gaining back some attention. Some of the healing properties papayas provide are:

  • Prevention and treatment of cancer and allergic disorders.
  • Increased quality of proteins in whole organism.
  • Revitalization of the human body and a maintaining of energy and vitality.
  • Encouraged renewal of muscle tissue.
  • Supported cardiovascular system.
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Help with the digestive system by breaking down proteins and supporting production of digestive enzymes.
  • Treatment for skin wounds that don’t heal quickly.
  • Prevention of cataract formation.
  • Lowered risk of emphysema in smokers and passive smokers thanks to high vitamin D content.
  • Alleviated inflammation.
  • Help with nausea and constipation.
  • Fighting various cancers and aiding the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems.

Choosing natural health promoting foods such as papaya leaf extract over destructive pharmaceutical drugs could be one of the best decisions made regarding your health. Organic foods and health supplements alike are still the key to avoiding the disease machine perpetuated by the mainstream health and pharmaceutical industry. Supplements such as turmeric and papaya leaf extract will help to keep you from ever needing to ingest pharmaceutical toxins.

    This is a great article! I’m curious though; How do we assure ourselves that the Papaya extracts are coming from non-GMO plants?

  • Carl, if I may…I recently read that the vast majority of papayas sold on the mainland are not from Hawaii. Does that mean that papaya extracts are made from non-gmo papayas? Who knows. the best way, and the most pro-active way to discover so is to call the company that makes the extract and ask them. And while you are at it, you can let them know that you support non-gmo organic sources. This is a classic example of how an ordinary consumer can energize the growing anti-gmo activist movement by making a phone call, and inform themselves at the same time. You might also like the non-gmo action group I am organizing with WuW’s help. It is called “GEM” Check it if you like.

    Cheers, Jack

    Isn’t it funny that every article I read about something in nature that has cancer-fighting attributes has to do with a fruit or a vegetable? I simply cannot understand why more people aren’t picking up on this. We’ve been so brainwashed to think that we NEED pharmaceutical drugs that we’re killing ourselves with processed foods and harmful combinations of medication. My greatest fear in life is developing cancer. What am I doing to prevent it? Staying away from processed foods and man-made drugs. These are responsible for the poor health of our society.

    please reply to this – am interested but can’t find any info on how to prepare the extract or ingest it or sutible amounts?? what i have read is that it can cause a photoreaction to skin – is that ONLY if you apply in sunlight? does that mean there is no photoaffect if you swallow the extract?

    This article is a great resource for people who are interested in using bergamot for the above stated purposes. However the author is incorrect in stating that the participants received doses of 100mg. The doses were 500mg, 1000mg and 1500mg depending on their diagnosis. I found that you can purchase the bergamot extract in pill form in doses of 500mg.
    You can find the PDF of the study at or do a google search with the keywords University of Cantanzaro bergamot study it will be the first link listed.
