Dr Oz: Cancer Fighting Superfoods
Superfoods can do many things when it comes to health, including acting as Superfood Memory Boosters. Dr Oz and Nutritionist Dr Will Clower revealed that some Superfoods can also help you fight cancer. That’s because these foods work inside your body to help you heal internally, while also encouraging your weight loss efforts.
According to Dr Will Clower food is just as effective as medicine in the fight against cancer. Here are the foods and recipes discussed on the show.
Dr Oz Cancer Superfood: San Marzano Tomatoes
San Marzano Tomatoes are an Italian variety with thinner skin and a sweeter taste. They also seem to be more effective at fighting Cancer compared to other tomatoes. Try eating ½ a cup, three times each week. Cook them for even more health benefits.
Dr Oz Cancer Superfood: American Roast Coffee
Go ahead and help yourself to another cup of Coffee. It is actually also a Cancer fighter, helping you battle against Breast, Colon, Kidney, Liver, and Uterine Cancers. Overall, it lowers your risk of developing any type of cancer by about 3%.
Dr Clower advised that American Roast Coffee is the best choice, because it is higher in Antioxidants. He recommended drinking three cups a day, which means I’m right on target. Coffee: is there anything it can’t do?
Dr Oz Cancer Superfood: Collard Greens
Collard Greens can do a natural detox on the body, helping cut off blood supply to tumors, which keeps them from growing. Some studies found Collard Greens effective in fighting Ovarian Cancer and other forms of cancer.
Dr Clower said the best way to eat Collard Greens is by pulling the leaves off the ribs of the greens. Chewing the cooked leaves gets cancer fighting enzymes into your body to fend off cancer. The recommended serving is one cup, cooked, twice per week.
