While there are several lung support herbs that we recommend for your treatment plan, American ginseng, Asian ginseng, grape seed, green tea, and quercetin are the most common that are used by our herbalists. American and Asian ginsengs contain ginsenosides that produce medicinal benefits. The key difference is that American and Asian ginseng contain distinct types of ginsenosides in different amounts. Ginsenosides work in your body as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. They also help combat tumors, prevent cell death, boost immune function, and enhance cognitive function and well-being. Research has shown that American ginseng slows tumor growth, and Asian ginseng works to prevent cancerous cells in the body. Asian ginseng is also beneficial for reducing stress, controlling cholesterol levels, increasing energy levels, and improving a sense of well-being. You can find ginseng supplements easily, but make sure that the product contains the right type of ginseng. There are several variations, and not all of them provide the anti-cancer benefits of American and Asian ginseng. Grape seed boosts antioxidant levels in your body to eliminate free radicals that are known to cause premature cell death. For lung cancer treatment, grape seed extract provides antioxidant benefits and protects the liver during chemotherapy. The grape seed extract is available as a supplement in liquid, tablet, and capsule form. For the best results, use supplements that are labeled as containing no less than 95% of oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes. Green tea contains the highest levels of antioxidants compared to other types of tea. It is often used to increase energy levels, remove excess fluid from the body, enhance heart health, and boost the body’s healing response. For lung cancer patients, research has shown that green tea may help prevent cancer cells from forming and developing into tumors. Quercetin is a compound that is found in plants, and it helps to give vegetables and fruits their colors thanks to flavonoid compounds. Flavonoids are known to be powerful antioxidants that eliminate free radicals in the body, and they may even reverse some of the damage that is caused by free radicals. The compounds also help reduce inflammation. Fruits and vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet to beat lung cancer naturally. Some research has revealed that flavonoids are more effective than resveratrol for slowing the growth of lung tumors. You can increase your quercetin intake by eating foods that are rich in flavonoids. Some herbs, such as sage and parsley, contain high levels of quercetin, as well as red wine and tea. We can also recommend oral supplements that contain quercetin.
