Researchers from University of Michigan Cancer Centre have been able to found that Ginger not only kills the ovarian cancer cells, but also prevents the building up of the cells again. Ginger, which is known for its effective treatment of nausea and inflammation, has once again surprised us with its medicinal properties.
In the research studies, the scientists applied a solution of ginger powder and water to the ovarian cancer cells. In every one of the tests, the cancer cells died as a result in being contact with the ginger cells. Either the cells killed themselves (apoptosis) or they attacked themselves (autophagy).
If the cancer cells were able to commit autophagy and apotosis, the cells prevent resistance to chemotherapy. This has not been ascertained if these results are applicable in case of animals as well. One of the best advantages of using Ginger is that there are no side effects to it. It is also an easy product which can be present in the capsule form. The researchers have however specified that this is just a preliminary study in which further research is needed.
