For those fighting cancer, a healthy diet is critical. Botanical and nutritional compounds have been used for the treatment of cancer throughout history. Many of the common foods found in grocery stores contain cancer fighting properties, from the antioxidants that neutralize the damage caused by free radicals to the powerful phytochemicals that scientists are just beginning to explore. There isn’t a single element in a particular food that does all the work: The best thing to do is eat a variety of foods.
Many fruits and vegetables have nutrients that kill cancer cells and/or stop the spread of cancer. In the context of a cancer diet, to fight cancer, do not use a random selection of vegetables and fruits, but a very selective subset of vegetables and fruits specifically selected to treat cancer because there are food diets perfectly capable of curing cancer. The following 6 foods have the most powerful ability to help stave off cancer and some can even help inhibit cancer cell growth or reduce tumor size.
Black cumin (Nigella sativa) is a part of the buttercup family and the seeds are dark, thin, and crescent-shaped when whole. The seeds have been used for many centuries in the Middle East, the Mediterranean and India. Today, black cumin seeds are used as a seasoning spice in different cuisines across the world due to their nutty flavor. Besides their culinary uses, black seeds also have a wealth of important health benefits and are one of the most cherished medicinal seeds in history. Nigella sativa and its black seed are known by other names, varying between places. Some call it black caraway, others call it Black Cumin (Kalonji), or even coriander seeds.
Many active components have been isolated from black cumin, including thymoquinone, thymohydroquinone, dithymoquinone, thymol, carvacrol, nigellimine-N-oxide, nigellicine, nigellidine and alpha-hederin. In addition, quite a few pharmacological effects of black cumin seed, its oil, various extracts and active components have been identified to include immune stimulation, anti-inflammation, hypoglycemic, antihypertensive, antiasthmatic, antimicrobial, antiparasitic, antioxidant and anticancer effects. Researchers have discovered that thymoquinone can remedy one of the most virulent and difficult to treat cancers: pancreatic cancer. Black Seeds extract does this by blocking pancreatic cell growth, and actually enhancing the built-in cellular function that causes programmed cell death, or apoptosis. Black seeds have also been found to be especially useful in the treatment of breast, lung, prostate and liver cancer.

Broccoli seeds and sprouts
A diet high in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli has been linked to a significant reduction in the risk of cancer, especially prostate cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, ovarian cancer, and bladder cancer. Broccoli contains glucoraphanin, which with the body processes into the anti-cancer compound sulforaphane. This compound rids the body H. pylori, a bacterium found to highly increase the risk of gastric cancer. Sulforaphane has also been found to be especially useful in the treatment of stomach and bladder cancer.
Furthermore, broccoli contains indole 3 carbinol, a powerful antioxidant compound and anti-carcinogen found to not only hinders the growth of breast, cervical and prostate cancer, but also boosts liver function.
PEITC (Phenethyl isothiocyanate) is an anti-cancer compound found in many vegetables like broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, etc. Combined, they are an excellent protocol for preventing and treating prostate and breast cancer.
Sulforaphane enhances protection and repair of gastric mucosa against oxidative stress in vitro, and demonstrates anti-inflammatory effects on Helicobacter pylori-infected gastric mucosae in mice and human subjects.

The roots of rhubarb (Rheum officinale Baill., R. palmatum L.), called Da Huang in China, have been used in traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine for 2000 years, gradually spreading to India, Russia, Europe and North America. It is one of the most widely used herbs to treat gastric ulcers, chronic renal failure, pregnancy-induced hypertension, and cancer. It has a safe and gentle action, safe even for children to use. It has been shown to have some very interesting polyphenols that have anti-cancerous properties.
Active chemical constituents are:
Rhubarb has long thick “celery like” stalks that are bright red. The leaves are poisonous, but the stalk is not. ONLY the stalks are edible. Rhubarb is ready to be consumed as soon as it is harvested, and freshly cut stalks will be firm and glossy. The stalks also contain low levels of oxalic acids. Perfectly safe in moderate quantities, oxalic acid can lock up certain minerals (especially calcium) in the body, leading to nutritional deficiency. Cooking the plant will reduce its content of oxalic acid. The oxalic acid also has antitumor and anticancer properties.
People with a tendency to rheumatism, arthritis, gout, kidney stones or hyperacidity should take especial caution if including this plant in their diet since it can aggravate their condition. Rhubarb root is not recommended during pregnancy or lactation or by children less than 12 years old.

An ingredient in common eggplant has been shown to cure cancer. The eggplant extract is a phytochemical called solasodine glycoside, or BEC5. BEC5 works by bonding to a receptor on the surface of the cancer cell. After the cell digests the eggplant extract, it causes the cell to rupture. The cancer cell is destroyed and its contents are then reabsorbed by the body. BEC5 has been proven effective in treating many cases of skin cancer, preventing surgery. The types of cancer treated by eggplant are both invasive and non-invasive non-melanoma skin cancers. In every case the cancers went into remission and did not return. BEC5 acts by killing cancer cells without harming any other healthy cells in the human body. Eggplant has also been found to be especially useful in the treatment of colon and liver cancer.
Green Coffee Bean Extract
Coffee might have anti-cancer properties. Researchers found that coffee drinkers were 50% less likely to get liver cancer than nondrinkers. A few studies have found ties to lower rates of colon, breast, and rectal cancers. There are a number of phytochemicals, the most predominate being chlorogenic acid, that provide coffee’s disease-protecting punch. Of interest is the additional ability of coffee polyphenols to exert direct biological actions on cells. For instance, daily coffee intake may modify key enzymes that improve intracellular signaling, which can protect against diabetes, cancer, and many other diseases. Poor cell signaling may be a factor in cancer, diabetes, and more. Chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, phytoestrogens, and caffeine – all found in coffee – are suspected of playing a major role.
Chlorogenic acid is a phenolic natural product isolated from the coffee bean. Structurally, chlorogenic acid is the ester of caffeic acid with the 3-hydroxyl group of quinic acid. Chlorogenic acid is an important factor in plant metabolism. It is also an antioxidant and an inhibitor of the tumor promoting activity of phorbol esters. The difference between green coffee beans and regular coffee beans is that one type is raw and unroasted and the other type has undergone the roasting process. Green coffee beans naturally contain higher chlorogenic acid. Roasting coffee beans destroys the cholorgenic acid. By using the unroasted green coffee bean extract, the concentration of chlorogenic acid is higher than could ever be reached drinking regular coffee.
Researchers found a way to extract the chlorogenic acid from the coffee beans without carrying over the high caffeine content. The result is a pure green coffee bean extract rich in chlorogenic acid and low in caffeine. Green coffee bean extract has been advocated for its anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-cancer properties.
Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.) is packed with nutrients, such as folic acid and vitamin E. In addition, it contains high levels of rutin (a flavonoid), protodioscin (a steroidal saponin), asparaginase (an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of asparagine to aspartic acid), and asparagosides (steroidal glycosides) found in asparagus crowns, spears and roots. Wild asparagus (Asparagus racemosus) is a species of asparagus with a long history of use in Asia as a botanical medicine. Many medicinal qualities of wild asparagus have been associated with phytonutrients present in its roots.
Asparagus has several biological activities including antifungal, antiviral and anticancer activities due to the steroidal saponins, steroidal glycosides and natural enzymes (pharmaceutical companies do not use asparagus as a source of the asparaginase enzyme, but rather, rely on bacteria as their enzyme production source).
Asparagus helps fight chronic fatigue syndrome, helps treat toothaches, helps chelate heavy metals from the body, heals blood vessels, is a diuretic, laxative, antidepressant and an aphrodisiac, and is a wonderful anticancer food. Asparagus can aid weight loss, boost energy, enhance the immune system, make certain vaccines more effective and destroy some types of tumor cells, particularly liver, lung and blood cancers. A recent study showed that asparanin A, a steroidal saponin extracted from asparagus induces cell cycle arrest and triggers apoptosis via a p53-independent manner in liver cancer cells.
What is BREGA-Zym?
BREGA-Zym is a proprietary blend of fermented Black seeds, Broccoli seeds, Rhubarb extracts, Eggplant extracts, Green coffee bean extracts, Asparagus extracts and plant based anticancer enzymes. But BREGA-Zym uses no ordinary fermentation process. BREGA-Zym is much more effective than your typical cancer fighting supplements or medications. If someone is in a very bad state, in the end stage of their battle, use BREGA-Zym as the “cancer diet”. BREGA-Zym can be used alone or in combination with chemotherapy drug or targeted drug. BREGA-Zym has been successfully tested in recent years in S. Korea as an adjunct to chemotherapy. BREGA-Zym is not only the most powerful anti-cancer food on the planet, it is also the most nutrient-dense of all vegetables.
BREGA-Zym shows the greatest synergistic effect when used in combination with Red PalmZym (fermented organic red palm oil) and HerbalZym Mineral (powerful liquid mineral for killing cancer). With this simple, natural remedy, many surgeries for cancer might be prevented and health restored. The cancer diet is just as important as the cancer treatment. In fact, many cancer patients have cured their cancer by using nothing but a cancer diet.
