The smoothie for reduced risk and treatment of Liver cancer
Yield: 2 servings (about 8 ounces each)
1/2 cup dried wolfberry (you can easily buy them in any Chinese grocery store)
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 cup coffee
1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree about 1 minute
2. Blend on high speed about 1 minute or until the mixture is thick and the ice is well crushed. Add more green tea drink if needed
3. Serve immediately.
Liver cancer is a condition of out of controlled growth of hepatocellular cells in the liver. Since the organ is a soft tissue with less nerve, most liver cancer patient are diagnosed in the later stage of the cancer. According to the statistic, liver cancer remains the fifth most common malignancy in men and the eighth in women worldwide. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a common form of primary liver cancer.
Back by well known institutions, according to the recent studies, coffee(1), wolfberry(4) and artichoke(7) may be next potential therapeutic target for producing a curable medication for reduced risk and treatment of liver cancer.
Coffee drink made from roasted coffee beans and considered as one most popular beverage in Western countries may consist the property in ameliorate risk of liver cancer. According to the joint study lead by the Harvard School of Public Health, intake of coffee regularly inversely associated to reduced HCC risk was partly accounted for by biomarkers of inflammation and hepatocellular injury(1).
In the Liver Cancer Pooling Project, a consortium of U.S.-based cohort studies, data from 1,212,893 individuals, higher coffee consumption was associated with lower risk of HCC, among women than men (HR>3 cups/day vs. non-drinker)(2).
Furthermore, according to a prospective study in Japan, risk of liver cancer in almost never drinkers in this population was 547.2 cases per 100,000 people over 10 years, in comparison of 214.6 cases per 100 000 people with drinking coffee on a daily basis(3).
Wolfberry is the common name for the fruit of two very closely related species, the genus of Lycium, belong to family Solanaceae, native to native to southeastern Europe and Asia. According to the General Hospital of Ningxia Medical University, Lycium barbarum berries, improved general wellbeing and immune functions and exhibited antitumor activities against various types of cancer cells through induction of apoptosis and cell cycle arrest(4).
Honey, the rich golden liquid, is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers. It is considered as one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people. According to State University of Campinas-UNICAM, honey treatment affect the tumor and host caused by oxidative stress through different mechanisms(8), such as decreasing cell proliferation and increasing apoptosis in tumour tissue(9).The study of bee honey and Nigella sativa on hepatocellular carcinoma cells BY THE Ain Shams University, showed a positive effects of honey in reducing the viability of HepG2 cells, improving their antioxidant status and inducing their apoptotic death(10).
