Inositol hexaphosphate, a natural substance found in whole kernel corn and brown rice, activates natural killer cell function - inhibits cancer.

[No authors listed]



Dr. AbulKalam Shamsuddin has written a book discussing how diets high in bran or Inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) inhibit cancer development in laboratory animals. Studies show IP6 can help fight bacterial and fungal infections. The substance is found in the germ or bran portions of whole grains; the highest concentration is found in whole-kernel corn. IP6 is available in health food stores for $25 for a 120-capsule bottle, which would last 6 days at the recommended dosage. IP6 can be added to one?s diet by eating whole-grain foods. A recipe is provided for wild rice, one source of IP6.
