When I first started working in the supplement industry, I read a letter from a customer that stunned me. The letter was from a widower. His wife had just recently died. The coroner listed the official cause of death as cancer. But the gentleman wrote in his letter that his wife was completely free of cancer when she died. Needless to say, I was intrigued.
The gentleman went on to describe how his wife had suffered from cancer and her oncologist treated her with chemotherapy. When that didn’t work, they turned to resveratrol. After several months, they visited their oncologist who conducted all the normal tests for evaluating the cancer. The oncologist came back in the room and told them the cancer was gone! There was no trace of it.
The couple was perplexed. They were excited that the cancer was gone. But wondered why she continued to fail. The doctor’s answer — the platinum from the chemotherapy had poisoned her. She eventually died from the poison.
I knew chemotherapy was toxic, so that part was no surprise. What stunned me was the power of resveratrol to destroy cancer. But since then, hundreds of studies have shown this was more than just a good story. Resveratrol really fights cancer. Now two new studies show that you can add other nutrients to resveratrol for even better cancer-fighting results.

In the first study, researchers from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio looked at the ability of certain fruit and vegetable compounds to prevent skin cancer. In addition to resveratrol, they added grape seed extract, D-glucarate (which detoxifies on a cellular level), calcium, and ellagic acid (a phenol in many berries and nuts) to their study. They found that all of these nutrients work together to protect against skin cancer.
Another study in Cancer Prevention Research looked at using these nutrients both orally and topically. The researchers found that the nutrients worked far better together than they did by themselves. Even when they used low doses, they had a dramatic effect. They concluded that the compounds each played a specific role in protecting the skin. These roles are so unique that one compound can’t make up for the other nutrients when you take it alone.
This is true for all of those nutrients except resveratrol. As I mentioned earlier, resveratrol can fight cancer very effectively on its own. In fact, one study found that it reduced skin cancer tumors by up to 98%. But that’s not all. Resveratrol is also a Cox inhibitor. That means it stops the spread of cancer.
Whether you use resveratrol by itself, or in combination with other nutrients, make sure you buy a product with a hefty dose of resveratrol. I prefer Advanced Resveratrol Formula. It’s the one I’ve taken for over 15 years. And it’s the formula the couple mentioned earlier used. I can’t guarantee it’ll cure cancer like it did for them. But it sure can help. Plus, you may want to add some of the other nutrients used in these studies.
