A 2011 study has found that sweet potato greens extract (SPGE) may soon become a valuable tool in the fight against cancer. The study found that SPGE not only ‘remarkably inhibited’ the growth and progression of cancer cells, but the administration of SPGE led to absolutely no toxicity, unlike mainstream cancer solutions.

Sweet potato green extract even “perturbed cell cycle progression, reduced clonogenic survival, modulated cell cycle and apoptosis regulatory molecules and induced apoptosis in human prostate cancer PC-3 cells both in vitro and in vivo.”

The study abstract concludes:

“Oral administration of 400 mg/kg SPGE remarkably inhibited growth and progression of prostate tumor xenografts by ∼69% in nude mice, as shown by tumor volume measurements and non-invasive real-time bioluminescent imaging. Most importantly, SPGE did not cause any detectable toxicity to rapidly dividing normal tissues such as gut and bone marrow. This is the first report to demonstrate the in vitro and in vivo anticancer activity of sweet potato greens in prostate cancer.”
