Improve Prostate Cancer Treatment Naturally

Can quercetin help treat prostate cancer?

Although called the prostate “gland,” the prostate is actually a group of glands located just below the bladder in men and is part of the male reproductive system.62 Statistically, over 15% of American men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetimes. Fortunately this cancer is highly treatable, with almost 100% 5-year survival rate for white men and 96.5% for black men.63

Live animal studies have demonstrated that quercetin enhances the effectiveness of tamoxifen treatment for prostate cancer, possibly by inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels. Although tamoxifen and quercetin individually inhibited cancer growth in treated mice, the combination of the two dramatically decreased production of two different proteins that promote new blood vessel development, which tumors need to grow and spread.64
