Cancer Foods that Boost Immune System

Anti-cancer foods, particularly fresh fruits and vegetables, boost immune system strength and help prevent and fight off cancer.

Research has shown that it’s never too soon or too late to start eating a wide variety of these healthy foods. That’s why every single public health agency recommends eating at least 2-4 servings of fruit and 3-5 servings of vegetables every day. And they don’t mean iceberg lettuce, French fries and a banana. They're talking about dark-green leafy vegetables, plus bright yellow, orange and red fruits and vegetables.

Why? Because these powerful anti cancer foods are nutrient dense in carotenoids – potent antioxidant phytonutrients important to the health, growth and longevity of every cell in your body. Carotenoids have been found to 1) prevent oxidative damage on the cellular level, 2) stop the progression and spread of cancer cells and 3) help repair the damage cancer may already have done to cells. And, all cancer and all health, for that matter, begins and ends in a single cell.

Simply put, carotenoids are “nature’s crayons” that can color you healthy. They’re the coloring agents found in such fruits and vegetables as sweet potatoes, carrots, red bell peppers, tomatoes, spinach, apricots, strawberries and peaches. These foods contain the most powerful members of the carotenoid family – alpha, beta, gamma and zeta carotenes, lycopene, lutein, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthins and xanthophylls. Other carotenoid rich fruits and vegetables are oranges, pink grapefruit, mangoes, broccoli, squash, kale, Swiss chard and collard greens.

However, if you’re one of the millions of people not getting their daily 5 to 9 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables and still want complete antioxidant protection of anti cancer foods, consider adding Carotenoid ComplexTM to your daily supplement program.

Carotenoid ComplexTM is made from natural, high carotenoid fruits and vegetables (tomatoes, carrots, spinach, red bell peppers, strawberries, apricots and peaches) - and is concentrated to support a strong immune system. Each bottle contains the carotenoid equivalent of 250 pounds of raw organic fruits and vegetables.

Carotenoid ComplexTM is by far the most thoroughly researched, truly natural, proven effective carotenoid supplement on the market. Studies conducted by independent USDA researchers and published in the prestigious, peer reviewed American Journal of Clinical Nutrition have shown that Carotenoid ComplexTM increases natural protective killer cells by a whopping 37% in just 20 days. It’s mind boggling to imagine how strong your immune system could be six months to a year from now.
