Protect yourself from skin cancer with resveratrol and ellagic acid
The study, which was published in Cancer Prevention Research, aimed to determine whether certain antioxidant compounds found within fruits such as muscadine grapes could help to stave off and prevent the development of tumours and in particular, skin cancer.
The molecules studied were resveratrol, grape skin/seed extract, ellagic acid, D Glucarate and calcium. All of these molecules, which can be found within muscadine grapes, boast powerful antioxidant capabilities and the aim of the study was to see if these compounds worked better alone or provided more health benefits when taken in a synergistic blend.
The scientists took mice with skin cancer and administered ellagic acid, D Glucarate, resveratrol and grape seed extract both orally and topically. The results showed that even at low doses, the compounds showed maximum therapeutic benefits when combined with each other because each molecule has a specific task in the prevention of tumour growth. The results also showed that the mice who were administered a single compound only did not show such positive effects as the combined groups.
One of the researchers, Dr. Zbigniew Walaszek commented: “Both the combined agents and the combined treatments work better than single agents or treatments in prevention of skin cancer,”
The results are positive as they provide new ways of developing sunscreens which at present contain some toxins and parabens. Present sun protection also blocks out the UV rays that are crucial to providing us with vitamin D3 which has a huge amount of health benefits. In fact, some studies quote that up to 90% of the American population is deficient in vitamin D3 and this can have serious health and financial implications.
Mary Green of resveratrol and ellagic acid firm, Muscadinex, welcomed these findings: “It is exciting to see such promising results from this study. Skin cancer affects millions of people every year and is the most common form of cancer so new alternative ways need to be explored to help prevent this growing disease. We are great believers in the healing potential of resveratrol and ellagic acid, this is why we have developed a health supplement developed from nothing but pure muscadine grape, which contains both of these beneficial molecules.”
Muscadinex is an all American product that’s been grown, picked and bottled on a family farm in North Carolina. The makers say that their natural blend of synergistic compounds has health advantages over engineered supplements which only contain one or two polyphenolic compounds. Muscadinex contains 650mg of pure Muscadine grape seed extract with no additives, preservatives or artificial bulking ingredients.
Mary Green continued: “If naturally occurring antioxidants like resveratrol and ellagic acid can be used to combat the threat of skin cancer then the sunscreen industry needs to wake up to this fact and explore the possibility of using these ingredients in their formulations. We understand there is a growing vitamin D3 deficiency as well and for this reason we are giving away a free bottle of our 5000IU vitamin D3 supplement with every purchase of Muscadinex. This way our customers can enjoy the health benefits of both resveratrol and vitamin D3.”
