This exotic plant has been known for making bread and drinks until now, but from now on its main characteristic will be its ability to cure cancer and infertility.
Its scientific name is Manihot esculenta, while it is commonly known as cassava, manioc, Brazilian arrowroot, and tapioca. Cassava tubers belong to the spurge family (Euphorbiaceae) of plants and are thought to have originated from the South-American forests.
The Manioc or Cassava plant has been found to be an excellent cure for infertility, severe headaches and arthritis. Its leaves are a great source of protein, lysine and beta-carotene, while its root contains high content of calcium and vitamin C. By regularly consuming this plant, one can also strengthen their bones and improve resistance.
Benefits of Manioc or Cassava plant
Tapioca, a delicious starch extract derived from the cassava plant, is considered to aid in weight gain, protect against birth defects, lower cholesterol, increase circulation and red blood cell count, prevent diabetes, protect bone mineral density, improve digestion, protect heart health, maintain fluid balance within the body, as well as prevent Alzheimer’s disease. This plant is also considered to help fight against colon, prostate and bladder cancer.
Latest research conducted by Lankacnews.com reveals that this plant can also be very effective in the treatment against tumors.
The plant has to be cooked thoroughly prior to consumption in order to eradicate its small concentration of poisonous cyanide. When cassava is consumed for its medicinal benefits, it needs to be peeled, cut into pieces, and immersed in alternating hot and cold water. Once it is cooked, refrigerate the soaked cassava leaves for two hours. When the leaves have soaked, the liquid in which they’ve soaked should be poured into another liquid solution such as water or fruit juice, and be consumed every morning before breakfast.
Cassava Is Rich in Vitamin B17-Used in Medication to Counter Cancer
Vitamin B17 is used in medication to counter cancer and manioc or cassava contains this vitamin in large amount, which actually confirms its potential to combat cancer. Acquainted with this fact, Dr. Cynthia Jayasuriya, ear, nose, and throat surgeon, started looking for foods high in this specific vitamin after she was diagnosed with cancer. In fact, her story is truly inspiring and encouraging. After being diagnosed with transitional cell cancer and trying to fight it for almost a decade, Dr. Jayasuriya decided to try an alternative medicine treatment. She read on WorldWithoutCancer.org that manioc- also known as cassava or tapioca – is rich in B17component and for a whole month she consumed this plant. She consumed about a 100 grams of manioc, three times a day. In the morning, she ate it boiled and in the afternoon and night, as a curry. Her cystoscopy done a month later showed no signs of cancer.
Here’s her explanation about how this plant really works:
Once the manioc is consumed, the manioc’s Vitamin B17 combines in the normal human cell with an enzyme called Rhodanese, which breaks down the B17 into thee sugars. The cancer cell, which is an immature cell, has a different enzyme, beta-glucosidase, which breaks the B17 into glucose, benzaldehyde and hydrocyanic acid. The hydrocyanic acid acts like and LTTE cyanide capsule, killing the cancer cell.
When the Vitamin B17 combines with a normal cell enzyme it breaks down into 3 sugars but when it combines with the cancer cell enzyme it breaks into 1 sugar 1 benzaldehyde and 1 hydrocyanic acid. The hydrocyanic acid kills the cancer cell locally.
