Discover with Dr. Dylan Foster, DC, PScD, CFMP, ONC, of post chemo nutrition as he reviews a medical journal article from Oncology Reports titled “Salidroside Inhibits the Growth of Human Breast Cancer in Vitro and in Vivo”. See how something natural, like Salidroside, from Rhodiola rosea, has been found to potentially contain powerful anticancer benefits. this article can be seen at: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25814.
Hello, we’re talking about breast cancer today and we’re looking into something that is natural, that relates to helping people with breast cancer. So if you’ve had breast cancer or you have breast cancer, and you’re looking to prevent breast cancer, whether it’s a recurrence rate or just you’re just being preventative. But you’re looking for something on the more natural side of information, well, that’s what we’re here today to talk about is some natural information from a medical journal called the Oncology Reports journal.
This is from 2015, this is Salidroside inhibits the growth of human breast cancer in vitro and in vivo. So that means basically in the cells with like a dish and also in the cells of life, in a living tissue. So we’re involving two components here. And we’re talking about this because as you know, I’m Dr. Dylan Foster from Post Chemo Nutrition. If you don’t know me, you can go to my website, postchemonutrition.com, and you can see about me here.
I’m going to shrink this down a little bit and move me out of the way. But it talks a little bit about me and my background. But bottom line is I’ve spent my whole life on the search and quest of helping people through natural means and methods using nutritional and lifestyle choices, things like that. So obviously that’s kind of my focus. So on Post Chemo Nutrition, it took me quite a few years and a lot of training as you know, I got certified as a chiropractic physician, then functional medicine and then nutritional oncology.
So with all my training and research, I found there’s two main components that help people get better. One is Cell Revive that I’ve developed, and then the other Bindatox. So Cell Revive is designed to help heal tissues, repair mitochondrial dysfunction, as well as helping with inflammation and just DNA and things like that. And then Bindatox is more kind of how it sounds is binding and detoxing. But what we’re talking about today, if we go into my products, actually let’s go to education here. And we’re going to go into research because on my Cell Revive product on Mito Life, we have Rhodiola here. Rhodiola, that’s the one you want to be aware of, Rhodiola rosea, rosacea. So the reason I mentioned that is because Salidroside is an isolated component from Rhodiola.
So that’s in my product. So my product I’ve designed based off of enormous amounts of research to find the best things available that I can help people with that has research behind it. And that is today’s research article from Oncology Reports. So let’s get into it. Let’s dive into it, see what it’s about here, shall we? So obviously Rhodiola rosea is from the Salidroside. I do firmly believe that the whole part of the plant is a little bit better than the isolated part of it.
So I like the Rhodiola part and there’s a lot of studies I’ll show you in here. So real quick. Sorry. Back to education research, and then we’ll click on because we’re talking about Cell Revive and we go into the research for Cell Revive and we’re on Mito Life. So we’re going to scroll down. So these are all research articles I have on the ingredients in Cell Revive. These are all mostly scientific journal articles and medical books. So we’re going to keep going down. There’s a lot here.
I’m going to keep scrolling. Keeps scrolling, keep scrolling. Here we go, Mito Life. So I think we are keep going down, down, down. Right here. So here is the article that we are going to be covering in the topic today. So if you want to find it on our website, go to our website, Post Chemo Nutrition, education, research, choose Cell Revive, and then Mito Life. So back to the article now. All right. Whoops, wrong one there. So here’s the article. I highlighted some components there obviously, but what I’m going to do is cover the typical highlighted parts.
So it was found that Salidroside treatment significantly inhibited cell proliferation. That’s the splitting of new cells. Colony formation, so making a new cancer cells, migration and invasion. So basically just sending out new cancer cells all over and invading tissues. As well as induced cell apoptosis. Apoptosis is the destruction of cancerous cells. So we want this in this topic here, and it also has been found to arrest or stop the GO/G1 phase. That’s basically you have four phases, I believe of cell reproduction. And so it stops the reproduction phase in vitro. So that’s pretty cool too.
And then in mice, it found that it actually helps suppress tumor growth. It also has been found to inhibit intracellular reactive oxygen species, which we’ll cover in a second, in different pathways that inhibit, that may contribute to the inhibition of tumor growth. So basically we don’t want to stop pathways that stop tumor growth, right? For breast cancer. But in conclusion of this little section and tidbit here says that, “These findings suggest that Salidroside may be a promising target for the prevention and treatment of human breast cancer.”
So this is important to know and we’re going to get a few more details here. I don’t want to get too deep into it, but as you know, hopefully you do know that breast cancer is the most common malignancy and the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women. And that is both in developed and developing countries in the world here. But this one was kind of a neat little excerpt from this article, although several types of treatment, including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy have been designed to treat breast cancer.
The success to date is limited. So they’re saying it’s not the most successful treatments. Among the various types of therapy, systemic chemotherapy is the main treatment of cancer, right? So that’s most common as chemotherapy. However, chemotherapeutic drugs for breast cancer, this is important. Chemotherapeutic drugs for breast cancer usually have variable effectiveness with high toxicity to normal tissues and breast tumors often develop metastasis and drug resistance.
So chemotherapy has high toxicity to normal tissues. And then the breast tumors often develop into metastatic forms and then become drug resistance so the drugs don’t work again. So that’s chemotherapy. So that’s kind of why they’re doing this natural field here, because they say even right here, “It’s been demonstrated that plant-derived anti-cancer drugs are much more effective and have minimal side effects when compared to synthetic drugs.”
And this Rhodiola rosea is what they’re considering one of the plant-derived anti–cancer drugs in this article. Although it’s something natural so I’m not sure how they call it a drug. Salidroside is the main active ingredient found in Rhodiola rosea. Some of the benefits that they found from this isolated component is anti-aging, anti-fatigue. So if you’re exhausted, right? How many people have been through chemotherapy or suffering to stress in general at age faster than they should? Antioxidant, which was important for healing, antiviral, antiinflammatory, as well as neuroprotective and cardiovascular protective effects.
It’s been found to inhibit cell proliferation, induce cell apoptosis in the lung, bladder cancer, neuroblastomas and gliomas in in vitro studies. And then that’s in regarding breast cancer. The underlying mechanism of the anti-cancer effect of Salidroside remains largely unknown. So that is part of what this study was for is to help bring some light to this component from Rhodiola.
So we’re going to scroll down here. We’re not going to get into the methods because I mean, it’d take hours for me to cover those and what it means. So we’re just going to go into the kind of the results and the overview. So some of the results from these tests that they were doing, they’re all broken down and they broke down their results. So one of them they found it to inhibit proliferation and colony formation in MCF-7 cells. Those are basically your breast cancer cells. So it found that this can inhibit the proliferation, the spreading and the colony formation of these breast cancer cells. So that’s cool and inhibit that.
Also found that it induces apoptosis in these breast cancers. So we want cancerous cells to kill themselves ideally, right? And that’s apoptosis. We want them to kill themselves. So it found it helps induce that. So that’s awesome. It also found that it helps induce the arrest of the GO/G1 phase cell cycle of these MCF-7 cells. So what that means is it’s basically stopping the reproduction of these breast cancer cells. So that’s pretty cool. So now they’re not reproducing.
It goes down in here and inhibits cell migration and invasion of these breast cancer cells. So now they’re not taking over other tissues and parts of your body. Reactive oxidation species. This is something that I said, I’ll talk about later. So basically ROS happens when cells undergo chemical or environmental stress, and it can lead to cell apoptosis of even healthy cells. But it basically contributes to the killing of cells. But when there’s a lot of chemicals and environmental stress going on and toxins, it, it basically becomes bad.
Kind of think of it as free radical damage like oxidation, right? Now, what we’re finding is that the Salidroside treatment significantly reduces this reactive oxidation species levels in these breast cancer cells and something important to see and I’ll cover again. But this is all dose-dependent, meaning you have to take in enough for it to work. So as you will see on my product, even though where it went here, go like that. That I have 300 milligrams. So a 150 milligrams twice a day. So 300 milligrams. Very important for a dosage with this product.
But basically reducing this reactive oxidation species really helps with these breast cancer cells from being able to take over, right? Let’s see. It suppresses tumor growth in a what’s called a nude mouse model. So they found it helps suppress tumor growth. Sorry, need some water here. And then we go down here again, it says all of this is dose-dependent. Okay. That’s very important to know dose-dependent. Can’t just take a couple of sprinkles and expect it to do this. This is not working on too small of a dosage.
Let’s go into the conclusion though. The conclusion here finds that the present study that provided evidence that Salidroside significantly inhibits breast cell proliferation, migration, invasion, induces cancer cell apoptosis in vitro, as well as it suppresses tumor growth in vivo. So like living cells. In addition, if the Salidroside treatment significantly inhibits the intracellular ROS; reactive oxygen species formation, and so signaling pathways that activate cancer cells. This helps suppress cancer cells, right? And it may contribute to the inhibition of tumor growth and decrease oxidative stress or free radical damage.
Thus, it may be a promising natural compound for human breast cancer, chemo prevention or chemotherapy. And that is the key today. This may be a promising natural compound for human breast cancer, chemo prevention, and chemo therapy prevention and therapy. A couple of keywords there. So that is what we’re talking about today is something natural that can be used to help hopefully with breast cancer prevention and therapy.
Obviously, this is just a study that shows some information and some light on this topic. Do not take things and matters into your own hands. Definitely seek an oncologist if you’re looking for second opinions, ideas, and treatment. I’m not saying that my product on Post Chemo Nutrition cures and prevents breast cancer. But what I am saying is either studies that are showing benefits of these ingredients and I’m going to share the studies and let you decide what’s best for you. You make your own judgment.
Now I know if you go talk to your oncologist, you can watch my video on the training they have in nutrition. So chances are with all these studies I have on natural aspects, I would wager that the majority of the oncologists out there haven’t read or even been interested in looking at any of these studies. Good reasons for it. They’re busy. They have a lot of time that need me to spend on keeping up with these chemotherapy, radiation and surgery techniques and advancements in that. So they’re busy doing that and that’s okay, let them do their job and work with you on that.
But also know that your health is your health and you matter more than anybody to yourself, right? For your health. So if that makes sense. So please just use this information wisely. Do the best you can. I’m not talking about being here to prevent and cure any disease by any means. I’m here just to share information from this study. Whoops, sorry. In this study right here in the Oncology Reports. Oncology Reports 2015, right? Here’s the information. The link will be in there. So that’s on breast cancer.
My last talk was also on breast cancer and Curcumin, relating to Curcumin and how it helps also with prevention. And then our next topic, I’m going to do one more on breast cancer, but we’re going to relate it more to mitochondrial dysfunction. Because that’s the big topic of why I made Cell Revive is to deal with mitochondrial dysfunction and how that relates to different neuropathies in breast cancer survivors. So we’re going to discuss this one on our next talk.
So for now, I’m Dr. Dylan Foster. I am out of here. So please visit my site, postchemonutrition.com. And if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me.
