Does Beta-elemene work against cancer?
Beta-elemene is a compound found in celery and mint that is used in traditional medicine. Beta-elemene has shown anticancer activity in laboratory studies. A few studies done in humans showed that Beta-elemene may improve quality of life in cancer patients but well designed clinical trials are needed. Many patients consume herbs high in beta-elemene in belief that they help cure cancer, however test tube studies show that Beta-elemene increased the activity of cisplatin against prostate cancer cells. A form of beta-elemene isolated from a species of ginger is reported to relieve pain, decrease the side effects of chemotherapy, and increase the quality of life in cancer patients. A systematic review indicates that beta-elemene injection may improve effectiveness of chemotherapy for the treatment of lung cancer.
