Apigenin is a natural occurrent substance present in a number of plants, like parsley, celery, onions and a number of fruits (like oranges), vegetables and plant-based drinks (like beer, tea, and wine). It belongs to the flavonoids family and it is currently being researched because of its potential anti-cancer effect. The flavonoids can destroy free radicals, which are molecules closely related to the aging process and to the development of chronic diseases (cancer amongst others).
Flavonoids seem to have anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic, and antiviral effects. They work inside the cells by inhibiting cell proliferation cycle and lowering the oxidative stress suffered by them. Apigenin specifically seems to have the capability to induce apoptosis on some cancer cells and renders them more susceptible to attack from CD8 T-cells from our own immune system. It has also shown to have anti-invasive potential for some more aggressive cancer types.
Apigenin may be recommended for bladder, brain, breast, colon, gastric tumors amongst other cancer types. Its mechanism of action make it a very strong candidate for many different cancers and it has show promise also outside of the alternative oncology field as a possible drug against other chronic diseases and even as an anti-aging agent due to its ability to destroy free radicals.
We believe that Apigenin can be a helpful tool when combined with other treatment modalities. We only recommend the intravenous use of the drug as we don’t believe that the dosage gotten through the oral intake is sufficient for an anti-cancer effect. It can be used in a wide array of anti-cancer treatments and as prevention to other illnesses.
