The researchers in the National university of Singapore, department of Pharmacy(NUS Pharmacy) they worked alot in investigating the pharmacological properties of plants and they spent almost three years on inestigating these properties of local plants.
They investigate and as a result they found that three species were particularly effective at inhibiting the growth of several cancers, and they have now published their finding in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology.
As we know that the medicine is using throughout the world for treatment but in Singapore there is a tradition of using local plants to treat various conditions including cancer.
The ratio of cancer in Singapore is very much and it is a leading cause of death in Singapore where 1 out of every 4–5 people develop the condition at some point in their lives.
Evidence of anticancer benefits in 5 plants
The team focused on seven plants that people have used as traditional medicines for cancer. They were:
• Bandicoot Berry (Leea indica)
• Sabah Snake Grass (Clinacanthus nutans)
• Fool’s Curry Leaf (Clausena lansium)
• Seven Star Needle (Pereskia bleo)
• Black Face General (Strobilanthes crispus)
• South African Leaf (Vernonia amygdalina)
• Simpleleaf Chastetree (Vitex trifolia)
In the study, the team prepared extracts of “fresh,” “healthy,” and “mature” leaves from these plants and examined their effects on cells from breast, ovarian, uterine, cervical,leukemia, liver, and colon cancer.
