This Herbal Extract Kills
Cancer Cells On Contact!

Asian medicine has a head start of a few thousand years when it comes to using a certain famous herb for medicinal reasons. Asian healers were the first to recognize its unique ability to cure a variety of ailments. Now new research shows a specific chemical found in this herb may be a much better cancer killer than the whole herb. Keep reading for the details. . .

Discover a Different Approach to Cancer

I just came across something that really struck a chord with me. It’s a video that shares a personal story of cancer from a friend of mine. I urge you to check it out.

Many of the people who read this newsletter have a similar story to tell, because this plague affects millions. 500,000 Americans a year lose their lives to it.

But Kevin Gianni, the man who created this fascinating video, is doing something about it. He’s organized a remarkable FREE online event where you can listen to 9 of the top natural cancer doctors and researchers share what they’re doing in their clinics all around the world.

This special, free online event is called the “Healing Cancer World Summit” and you can read more about it, watch the video and register by clicking here (it’s free). . .

This group of experts includes doctors, nutritionists, advocates and survivors — all in the same online forum — who will share their discoveries and experiences. They share options most people never hear about.

Some of the 9 experts include Dr. Nicolas Gonzalez, Dr. Francisco Contreras, Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy, Charlotte Gerson, Mike Adams and others. You know about some of these folks if you’ve read this newsletter or the books and reports we publish. They are all highly regarded experts on alternative cancer treatment.

To listen in to this online event is completely free. The event registration is open until Oct. 25, but if you register right now you’ll get three special bonus gifts that you can access right away while you’re waiting for the kickoff. . .

Ginseng is an adaptogen—a substance that regulates various body functions depending on individual needs. Eastern medical practitioners have used this Chinese herb to:

1. Boost the immune system

2. Enhance memory

3. Normalize blood pressure…

4. Reduce stress…

5. Restore memory and cognitive abilities…

6. Treat pulmonary problems…

Now Western doctors are noticing the growing body of scientific research that proves a specific chemical in ginseng —aglycolin sapogenin or AGS— very well may be an ideal cancer killer.

In some laboratory tests on melanoma tumors1, AGS completely destroyed cancer cells within 24 hours of contact! And with nearly zero toxicity and no side effects, AGS may be one of the safest cancer treatments available. Study after study has reported that no side effects were observed.

The AGS group of sapogenins is also called R-family sapogenins. If you see this term on a product, it means the same thing as AGS.

When it comes to ginseng and cancer,
you don’t want the whole thing

Ginseng contains substances called ginsenosides. Ginsenosides are the major active ingredients of ginseng root, and commercial ginseng products typically are standardized to contain about 4 to 7 percent ginsenosides. The amount can vary widely depending on the brand you buy, and on top of that there are 30 different types of ginsenoside.

But in any case you won’t get the benefits of the AGS breakthrough by taking ginseng, no matter how rich it is in ginsenosides. The new treatment is based on the fact that each ginsenoside contains a sugar (glycon) and a non-sugar (aglycon) component.

The glucose-formed components are great for strengthening your immune system and forming healthy cells in your body. They fuel cell growth. Unfortunately, these compounds can’t tell the difference between healthy cells and cancer cells.

Remember, cancer cells LOVE sugar! They’ll gobble up as much of it as you make available—and it helps them keep growing and growing….

Obviously if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, you DON’T want the abnormal cells to multiply. The key is to tap into the non-sugar components of ginsenosides, one of which is AGS.

Dr. William Jia, associate professor of research and neurosurgery at the University of British Columbia2, said AGS attacks cancer cells in several ways, including:

1. Apoptosis—or self-destruction in cancer cells; Jia said AGS can activate an enzyme that causes apoptosis. It also can increase the levels of free radicals in cancer cells to cause this internal combustion.

2. Increasing absorption of cancer drugs—AGS can work with other anti-cancer agents to prevent drug resistance in cancer cells.

3. Changing cancer cells to benign cells—In one Japanese study3, AGS not only stopped liver cancer cells from growing, it actually changed them back into normal cells.

Jia said the AGS attack plan is more effective than standard cancer treatments because cancer cells tend to mutate while they multiply. This means the same tumor can have several different types of cancer cells.

Conventional treatments might be effective for one type of tumor cell—and completely useless for other cancer cells in the same tumor. The idea of “drug resistant” cancer cells is becoming more and more important as we learn how cancer works.

In this respect AGS stands head and shoulders above mainstream medical treatments. Researchers have shown that these compounds can attack all types of cancer cells.

Jia highlighted scientific studies that tested sapogenins on human brain, breast and prostate cancer cells. He said research shows these plant chemicals were successful in killing ALL of these cancers.

Jia was actually writing about a group of plant compounds known as “dammarane sapogenins,” which are classified as AGS but are NOT derived from ginseng. The dammarene sapogenins are similar but not identical to AGS from ginseng, but they’re much less rare and expensive. He believes dammarene sapogenins are a reasonable alternative to the ginseng extract.

AGS can also protect you from developing harmful cancer cells in the first place…

Who else wants a nearly bulletproof cancer shield?

You’ve likely heard the saying that “the best offense is a good defense.” This definitely holds true if you include AGS in your arsenal of cancer prevention weapons!

Dr. Jia mentions three ways AGS helps shield your body from cancer:

1. AGS is a TUMOR TERMINATOR— Cancer develops when a single abnormal cell is able to divide and spread. Administered in low doses, AGS can stop the cycle of cell division and prevent tumor formation.

2. AGS helps PURGE POISONS— P450s are enzymes that help your body metabolize drugs and other chemicals in your body. These enzymes also cause you to absorb many environmental substances that become highly carcinogenic to your system.

Studies suggest AGS may inhibit P450s and cause a slowdown in the production of these carcinogens to allow effective removal by the body.

3. AGS can ELIMINATE EXCESS ESTROGEN— Numerous studies show prolonged exposure to estrogen can result in breast cancer growth. The same is true with folks who undergo hormone replacement therapy.

Jia said study data show that AGS prevents estrogen from binding to receptors in your body. This helps stop breast cancer in its tracks.

Now before you go hoarding ginseng supplements in your cabinet—remember AGS is a cancer-fighting compound that must be extracted from the herb.

Even if you buy a ginseng product that contains 90 percent ginsenosides, much less the standard four or five percent, it doesn’t matter when it comes to treating cancer. The ginsenosides have to be broken down into their component parts, the AGS or R-family sapogenins have to be extracted, and this active ingredient has to be taken by the patient in large amounts. For best results it appears this natural “drug” should be administered intravenously.

According to one estimate, it takes about 100 pounds of ginseng to make just one gram of AGS! So an AGS supplement is likely to cost a pretty penny. As I mentioned, the dammarene sapogenins extolled by Dr. Jia are derived from other plants and should be less expensive.

One company producing a potent AGS product is Pegasus Pharmaceuticals Group, Inc. of Canada. They produce AGS in both liquid and soft gel formulas. Called Careseng, the product contains a combination of ginseng-derived AGS and dammarene sapogenins.

Another AGS product, called Force C, is available at without a prescription. Force C was strongly recommended by the respected newsletter Health Science Institute some years ago.
