“Saponins Fight Cancer in Three Distinct Ways:

1. Cancer cells have a different membrane structure, with a more cholesterol-like compounds. As saponins bind cholesterol, they likewise have a natural affinity to bind cancer cell membranes preventing them from entering the body through the intestinal tract where they have the ability to attach themselves to vital organs and grow.

2. Saponins bind bile acids. Some bacteria in the large intestine turn primary bile into a substance that is highly carcinogenic (that is why a high fat diet increases the risk of colon cancer). By binding these primary bile acids, saponins stop this toxic material from forming in the body.

3. Saponins flush pathogens through the digestive system without allowing them to be absorbed into the body (see Strengthening The Immune System). This process relieves a tremendous amount of work off the immune system. With less stress, your body can more effectively identify and destroy cancer cells.”
