Is Dandelion Root Anti-Cancer?

We know that the ingredients we put into NutraCleanse™ is good stuff, but as it turns out, it’s really good stuff. Composed of flax seed, burdock root powder, fenugreek seed powder, psyllium husk, and dandelion root powder, our product has been praised by many for being comprised of ingredients that treat a variety of ailments, such as constipation and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

Now, it looks like one of the ingredients might be a cancer-killer.

The Research

Dr. Siyaram Pandey is a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Windsor, and in February 2015, CBC News reported that he was the principle research investigator in a clinical study that observed whether dandelion extract could kill such cancers as leukemia and lymphoma in humans.[i]

According to researchers at the Winsor Regional Cancer Centre, tests “showed that dandelion tea, containing dandelion root extract, killed cancer cells in a lab.”[ii]

The idea for this study was born years earlier, when, in Windsor, a terminally ill leukemia patient began to treat herself with dandelion root and had incredible success. Global News reported in 2012 that the patient was 3 years in remission and on a “steady diet of dandelion tea.”[iii]

The Suggestion

We’re not saying our product kills cancer, but we are saying that the ingredients that our product is created with are stellar for good health and overall maintenance. While other products may have a list of 40 ingredients, our product has only 5, including dandelion root.

Unwanted weed? Not anymore.
