Many phytochemicals have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, cancer-preventing and anticancer properties, linked to metabolism, proliferation, invasion, angiogenesis, and metastasis activities, showing relatively low toxicity to normal cells.

The TezBrio components are made up of Methyl Jasmonate and d-Limonene which are approved by the food and agriculture organization (FAO) and world health organization (WHO) Click for Published Research.

Furthermore, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has published on the non toxic nature of Methyl Jasmonate. Click here for the "Exemption From the Requirement of a Tolerance" from the Federal Register.

What is Methyl Jasmonate?

The Jasmine flower phytochemical components have been used in the perfume industry for over 100 years, it has recently been studied further, beyond its scent and flavoring use. One of its components is Methyl Jasmonate (MJ), a plant hormone produced when the plant is under attack.

It serves to neutralize predators and to communicate to neighboring plants to also start production of the hormone (MJ) to counteract the imminent attack.

What is MJ relationship with Cancer

Cells (healthy or cancerous) can't live without a functioning mitochondria.

Dr Cesari was the first to discover that MJ has a similar impact on mitochondria of cancer cells as it does to neutralize predator attacks. Click for Published Research.

Cancer cells and normal cells metabolize energy differently

Many new cancer drugs are designed to interrupt the energy process preferred by cancer cells, however, cancer cells adapt to these modified environments. Rather than allow the cancer cell the luxury of adaptation, MJ selectively targets the mitochondria in cancer cells and selectively attacks them without attacking normal healthy cells.

Research demonstrates cancer cells can’t thrive in the presence of MJ as it:

● inhibits spreading of tumor cells by cutting off the energy supply relied on by tumors
● selectively attacks tumor cells while leaving good cells unharmed
● directly impacts mitochondrial function
● induces chemical defense responses
● reduces oxidative stress
● inhibits inflammation

What is d-Limonene?

d-Limonene is a monoterpene, which is abundant in essential oils of citrus fruit peels. It is extracted from orange peel and has an extensive history of use in the flavor and fragrance Industries.

What is the relationship between d-Limonene and Cancer?

d-Limonene has emerged as a potential natural anticancer compound. It has attracted major attention as it exerted a chemopreventive activity, stimulating the detoxification of carcinogenic compounds and limiting tumor growth and angiogenesis in various cancer models. Click for Published Research. Cancer cells have a natural cloaking mechanism which allows them to hide from the immune system, d-Limonene prevents this mechanism, allowing the immune system to detect and fight the cancer cells. It has also been found to significantly affect gene families and support DNA damage repair.

Further benefits include:

● maintain healthy cell cycle
● increased tumor cell death
● anti-Inflammation
● DNA damage repair
