Melaleuca (Melaleuca spp.) is one of the most widely used food and herbal supplements in the world.
It’s also an ingredient in some cancer treatments.
But, how much does melaleuacin really do?
Melaleuacs use in cancer treatmentThe Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says it’s safe to use melaleuccin as an ingredient of some medicines, including melaleurone acetate, melaleuronacetate, and melaleusins.
But there are still a few caveats.
Melaleucans have an anti-cancer effect.
This means they work by inhibiting cancer cells from multiplying and growing.
However, they also block the body’s ability to make proteins.
These proteins are what help your body break down cancerous cells, says Dr. Jennifer R. Fessler, a professor of preventive medicine at the University of Michigan School of Medicine.
These proteins, when they’re produced in the body, help fight off the cancerous growths, but they also may not stop the growth of the cancer cells itself.
“The body doesn’t have to take on the burden of these proteins, so it’s not like it’s the best choice,” Fessler says.
“But it may be a better choice for some people.”
In the U.S., melaleuticones are used for treating a variety of cancers.
Some people also take them to control high blood pressure and diabetes, and some people take them for weight loss.
But the FDA says the benefits of melaleutin outweigh the risks.
Melales use in the dietIt’s not known exactly how melaleutics are used in the food and diet world.
But a recent study by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations found that melaleumins have been found to be beneficial in some cases, but not others.
The study looked at studies that examined whether melaleuzins were able to prevent cancer in mice and rats.
Researchers then compared melaleuvins to a mixture of a drug called ginkgo biloba, which has anti-aging properties.
The researchers found that ginkgasin inhibited cancer in the mice and also inhibited the growth and growth of tumour cells in the lab.
But the researchers noted that the results did not apply to humans.
“There are some studies that suggest that melaluacins may not be as effective in humans as they are in mice, and the mechanisms that might be responsible for this are not fully understood,” Fichtner says.
That said, Fessler agrees that there’s enough research out there to show that melales can be useful for people.
“They’re great for weight management and weight loss,” she says.
