Researchers at Indiana University and Methodist Research Institute publish the dramatic effects of a unique medicinal mushroom formula against breast cancer

SANTA ROSA, Calif., Nov. 11, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Researchers at Indiana University and Methodist Research Institute studied an innovative medicinal mushroom formula against breast cancer. The impressive results are found in the December issue of the International Journal of Oncology. Lead investigator Dr. Daniel Sliva says, "The formula inhibits growth of highly metastatic human breast cancer cells, and suppresses metastatic potential of these cells." The all-natural, doctor-designed formula is a blend of six potent varieties of medicinal mushrooms grown on immune enhancing and cancer fighting botanicals that work together to provide breast protection and immune support. Dr. Sliva adds, "These cultivation conditions help naturally increase the amount of biologically active components in these medicinal mushrooms."

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting women and may lead to more than 38,000 deaths this year in the U.S. Despite significant advances in breast cancer treatment, available treatments for advanced stage breast cancer offer little hope. However, as the study shows, this potentmushroom formula can be beneficial in the fight against highly invasive breast cancer. Medicinal mushrooms have been extensively researched for their anti-tumor and immune-modulating effects, and are essential for the maintenance of overall vitality and cellular health. "This unique mixture of ingredients produced positive and promising results," saysIsaac Eliaz, M.D., whom the study authors acknowledge for his development of the formula. Dr. Eliaz explains, "These compounds support breast health through cellular protection, and vital immune enhancement." Cancer metastasis is a complex process consisting of cell adhesion, cell migration, and cell invasion, and the inhibition of some of these events is crucial for the suppression of cancer metastasis. "Fortunately, the formula we studied inhibits all of these processes, without side effects, which are associated with cancer chemotherapy," explains Dr. Sliva.
