How important is vitamin B3 in preventing colorectal cancer?
When it comes to preventing colon cancer
, the healthy bacteria in your stomach plays a key role. This healthy bacteria flourishes when you eat fibre.
But, vitamin B3 can play a vital role as well. Especially if your diet is low on fibre.
New research found that vitamin B3 actually forces your immune system
into anti-inflammatory behaviour.
You see, your colon actually has in-built vitamin B3 receptors built into it. The receptors actively look for the vitamin B you put into your body. Once there, vitamin B3 can stop the inflammation that leads to polyp growth and cancer.
The result? A happy, healthy colon.
So, while fibre plays an important role in preventing colon cancer
, it’s best to make sure you include vitamin B3 as part of a well-balanced diet too.
Keep colon cancer at bay with these five vitamin B3-rich foods
Protein is necessary for a healthy gastrointestinal system. Good choices include free range chicken and turkey, grass fed beef and free-range eggs.
Of all the vegetables, mushrooms contain the highest concentration of vitamin B3. Choose any mushroom and you’ll go a long way to meeting your vitamin B3 needs. So whether it’s button mushrooms, Portabello or Shiitake, make sure you include them in your meals.
3. Fermented foods
Foods such as sauerkraut and pickles are loaded with vitamin B3 that’s great for your colon.
If you love peanuts you won’t have any trouble getting your vitamin B3 needs met. A 100g serving gives you nearly a full day’s supply. You can also eat natural peanut butter for the same benefit.
Tahini, a middle eastern spread made from ground sesame seeds, is a great source of vitamin B3 and protein. Try not to eat too much of it as it’s high in calories.
If you choose to take vitamin B3 supplements, just remember that they may make you flush because it dilates your blood vessels. Bu you can buy “flush free” capsules in a sustained release form that won’t give you that side effect.
The real key to healing cancer is to wipe out the stealth disease lurking behind it...
I admit I was downright shocked when I found out that cancer isn't actually what kills most cancer patients! And I've been a doctor for well over 20 years - so not much surprises me anymore.
Even more astounding - this monumental discovery goes back to the 1970s when former US Air Force Dr Joseph Gold uncovered the REAL killer, a condition that no one in the medical field was even talking about!
That's right - the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn't cancer at all. No! It's a syndrome you've probably never even heard of - called cachexia (pronounced "ka-kek-see-ah").
And if you or someone you love is battling cancer... You definitely can't afford to ignore what could very well be the only natural compound that stops this stealth killer in its tracks. Find out more here...
