This Plant Slows Prostate Cancer Growth

Posted on Jul 18, 2013 in Research

For men with prostate cancer, the PSA doubling time (PSADT) is a critical number to watch. The PSADT measures how quickly a tumor is growing. PSADT of 2 years? Your treatment plan is working well. PSADT of 4 months? The treatment isn’t working and the tumor is growing fast.

Do you want all options to decrease your PSADT? Look into modified citrus pectin.

This citrus plant extract binds to galactin-3, a receptor that cancer cells use to grab onto tissue and spread. Galectin-3 is pivotal to metastasis.

Modified citrus pectin (MCP) blocks galactin-3. In a phase II clinical trial, MCP increased the PSADT in 70% of men who took it. 

MCP works best when taken correctly. Ask your naturopathic oncologist for guidance.
