According to cancer.net, Liver Cancer is the 10th most common cancer and the 5th most common cause of cancer death among men. It is also the 8th most common cause of cancer death among women. Mainstream treatments vary from surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. But what if there were natural remedies, scientifically proven, to kill liver cancer cells? Well, there are, and to find out more about 3 vegan remedies that can kill liver cancer cells, read on.


Some the functions of the liver include: filtering the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body, and liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. Therefore, if you have been diagnosed with liver cancer, you must be mindful about everything that goes into your body, so that your liver is not overworked.

The fact that being mindful with what you ingest, can be the key to preventing and treating liver cancer, is further proven in an article published in the world journal of Hepatology, that discussed some of the dietary habits that may be associated with the onset of liver cancer. They include high intake of:

1)red and processed meat
2)Pork meat
3)dietary sugar

Interestingly, studies have suggested that antioxidants (plant derived substances that inhibits oxidation), could be proposed in therapeutic treatment of some liver pathologies. So, below are 3 Vegan remedies, rich in antioxidants that can kill liver cancer cells, according to science.

1) grapefruit

The Vegan remedy that has been scientifically proven to kill liver cancer cells is grapefruit. This was observed in a study, in which scientists isolated rat hepatocytes ( liver cells) and exposed it to substances with toxic effects to the liver cell culture. However, as soon as these cells were immersed with the grapefruit flavonoid, naringin, and then exposed to the toxic substances, they were able to observe that the toxic effects on normal liver cells were avoided.

The reason for the hepatoprotective effect of grapefruit is in its flavonoid type substance naringin. This substance was isolated in another researched and tested on rats, lab- induced to develop liver injuries. In this study, scientists conducted an Intraperitoneal treatment with naringin, prior to an intravenous dose of lipopolysaccharide-induced tumor necrosis factor, which is what induced liver damage. It was observed that treatment with naringin 3 h prior to lipopolysaccharide challenge resulted in complete protection.

It was observed that beetroot juice reduced the DNA damage increased as the result of NDEA treatment, as well as the biomarkers of liver injury.

The reason for beetroot’s hepato protective effects is because it is a rich source of a specific class of antioxidants called betalains, which were shown to be anti-inflammatory and chemo-preventive in many studies.

3) Grapes

The reason why grapes are in the list of remedies that has been scientifically proven to kill liver cancer is because this fruit is rich in resveratrol, a well known polyphenol proven to have strong anti- cancer properties. Resveratrol has also been specifically tested against the protein cyclin D1, which is overexpressed in liver cancers. Scientists were able to observe that resveratrol treatment downregulated cyclin D1, as well as other deregulated cell expressions related to the pathology of liver cancer.
