Anthocyanins-rich foods may reduce risk of colon cancer

A study conducted at Ohio State University tested the effect of a variety of foods that contain high-levels of anthocyanins on colon cancer cells. Anthocyanins are pigments that have high antioxidant properties. The foods tested were purple corn, chokeberry, bilberry, purple carrot, grape, radish, and elderberry. Purple corn was found to have the largest inhibitory effect on the cancer cells, followed by chokeberry and bilberry.

Not getting enough purple corn in your diet? consider Isotonix OPC-3®, which contains bilberry extract and grape seed extract, which has also been found to inhibit colon cancer cell growth in the lab.
