New research shows Curried Cauliflower—an ancient Indian dish—provides powerful protection against the development of prostate cancer. What’s more, this Madras medley was also shown to be effective in treating established prostate cancers.

Curry Fights Cancer: Curcumin + PEITC For Maximum Power

Scientists at Rutgers tested curcumin, a phytonutrient found in turmeric, along with phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), a naturally occurring substance particularly abundant in cauliflower and other Cruciferous vegetables in the broccoli family (including arugula, watercress, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, kohlrabi and turnips).

The researchers injected the mice with curcumin or PEITC, alone or in combination, three times a week for a total of four weeks. They found that both curcumin and PEITC significantly reduced the growth of cancerous tumors. But using PEITC and curcumin together produced even stronger effects.

Picking The Most Potent Cancer-Fighting Curry

Pick up a bottle of organic turmeric for powerful prostate protection. Look for a high-quality, organic variety at your local health food store and make sure to keep turmeric (or a curry blend) in a cool dark place as light reduces its potency.
