Acai Berry Can Help Fight Cancer – Especially Leukemia Cells
Acai Berry and Cancer: In January 2006, the University of Florida in Gainesville found some very exciting news that the acai berry was able to kill 86% of leukemia cells tested.
“Acai berries are already considered one of the richest fruit sources of antioxidants,” Stephen Talcott, assistant professor with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, said. “This study was an important step toward learning what people may gain from using beverages, dietary supplements or other products made with the berries.”
Other fruits, including grapes, contain antioxidants shown to kill cancer cells in similar studies. Brazilian berry destroys cancer cells in lab, UF study shows.
