Herbal Extract Inhibits Angiogenesis

Bindweed or Convolvulus arvensis is a commonly found weed and every farmer's nightmare - damaging crops by wrapping itself around plants such as corn and wheat. Bindweed grows all over the world - from Europe to China, and from Canada to South America. Farmers actually refer to it as "the cancer of weeds" - an ironic nickname. This amazing weed has demonstrated powerful angiogenesis inhibiting properties - testing 100 times stronger than shark cartilage. With this kind of data, the potential for patients is enormous: a patient could take just 2 capsules per day of this extract versus the equivalent of 200 capsules of shark cartilage per day.

100 Times Stronger Than Shark Cartilage
The proteoglycan mixture (PGM) found in bindweed has tested 100 times more effective than shark cartilage by weight. Using chicken egg chorioallantoic membrane tests, PGM was found to inhibit angiogenesis from 18% (for doses of 50 mcg per egg) to 73% (for doses of 200 mcg per egg). See photos and charts.

The Mechanism Behind The Weed
Researchers at the Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning in Wichita, Kansas have conducted numerous studies on PGM to identify the mechanisms behind its anti-neoplastic effects: “There are only a handful of possible mechanisms to look for: immune stimulation, apoptosis induction; redifferentiation; angiogenesis inhibition; and the direct killing of tumor cells PGM works as an angiogenesis inhibitor" - Neil Riordan, PA-C, M.S.

Moderate Immune Stimulation
In addition to its angiogenesis inhibiting properties, PGM is also a moderate immune stimulator. Studies done on PGM's effect on human lymphocyte growth in vitro have demonstrated an increase in lymphocyte production from 35 to 46 percent. Physicians working with cancer patients are reporting positive results consistent with this data. See 'What Doctors Are Saying “ after this article.

Toxicity Testing
Numerous animal studies have been performed to determine the toxicity of bindweed extract. At the equivalent of 1400 grams of PGM for humans, no toxicity was found in test animals. However it is important to note that bindweed, before the extraction process, does contain toxic alkaloids.

Conclusion
PGM is a potent angiogenesis inhibitor with mild immune stimulating properties, such as stimulating lymphocyte production. In animal studies, faster results occurred when an immune stimulant was added to the PGM. PGM is currently being studied as an adjunct to chemotherapy and immunotherapy at the Biocommunications Research Institute in Wichita, Kansas.
