Red Juice ENDS Cancer Pain
Dealing with cancer is hard enough.
Toss in the side effects of the drugs used to treat it, and you have a recipe for total misery.
For women dealing with hormone-receptor–positive breast cancer, there’s a drug option that has fewer side effects than chemo.
But fewer doesn’t mean none.
And the women who take this drug often face considerable joint and muscle pain.
Fortunately, there’s a powerful “red juice” proven to help ease those side effects.
The cancer treatment is called an aromatase inhibitor, a standard treatment for hormone receptor-positive breast cancer in postmenopausal women.
These drugs help prevent breast cancer from recurring by blocking the enzyme aromatase, which converts androgens to estrogens.
Unfortunately, they also cause joint pain in nearly 50% of the women taking them, and they cause muscle pain in about 15% of women.
You might think that women would happily deal with the pain if it means keeping cancer at bay.
But the reality is that the pain can be so debilitating that many women choose to stop the drug and take their chances.
But what if you can get the benefits of the aromatase inhibitor… with none of the pain?
In a randomized, double-blind study, researchers found the answer in a tart cherry concentrate.
Women taking just 1 ounce of tart cherry concentrate in 8 oz of water daily had a nearly 35% decrease in pain – compared to just a 1.4% decrease in the placebo group.
This was considered a statistically significant difference in pain levels.
The results were likely due to tart cherry’s anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, doctors often recommend NSAIDs for the women suffering from joint pain as a result of the aromatase inhibitor drugs.
But why take yet another drug that will have even more potential side effects when you have the option of a safe, effective pain reliever?
If you or someone you know is currently taking these drugs, be sure to tell them about tart cherry.
