Is Red Fruit Really Effective For Preventing Cancer?
afternoon, is it true that Papua red fruit has the highest antioxidant and can prevent cancer?
Hello Redoten, thank you for asking.
The efficacy of red fruits from Papua is indeed widely discussed. This fruit contains a variety of nutrients including carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, as well as antioxidant alpha carotene, beta carotene, vitamin C, and tocopherol. Anti oxidant is a molecule that neutralizes oxidants. Oxidation is actually a normal chemical reaction that occurs in cells in aerobic creatures. However, a byproduct of the oxidation process are various types of oxidants. Oxidants which accumulate will cause damage to the structure in the cell. Cells have a natural neutralizing mechanism to prevent oxidant buildup. But in some people, the ability of cells to neutralize oxidants decreases. In these conditions, anti-oxidant supplements are generally needed.
The cause of cancer is not yet known with certainty, although one cancer theory states that oxidants are a trigger for cancer. By controlling the levels of oxidants in cells, it is hoped that the risk of cancer growth can be reduced. Red fruit consumption is not a problem as long as it is not excessive and allergic side effects do not arise. But it must be remembered that the factors that cause cancer are not only oxidants. That is, red fruit can be used for cancer prevention but not 100%. Please also note that the anti-oxidant properties of red fruit have not been much studied. Much scientific evidence is still needed to be able to confirm the benefits of red fruit.
Thus our brief explanation, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
