Latest News and Research from The Beljanski Foundation

The world we’re entering in 2021 is far different than we imagined a year ago: new challenges, new opportunities, new beginnings. But some things do not change: the importance of having a purpose – to do well and to do good by solving some of the world’s biggest societal challenges – as an inspiration and as a compass.

The Beljanski Foundation, Inc. a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was created to develop scientific methods for diagnosis, prevention, treatment, alleviation and cure of cancer and other chronic diseases in a natural, safe, non-toxic way.

Since 1999, we have sponsored numerous ground-breaking research programs with the hope of helping thousands of people beat cancer naturally. And we are planning to carry on, with your help and support. We are proud to share with you the results of newly published research, and our ongoing research project.

Rauwolfia vomitoria extract for BPH

A new publication demonstrates the efficacy of Rauwolfia vomitoria extract for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Inflammation and enlargement of the prostate in older men causes urinary and quality of life issues. The Rauwolfia vomitoria plant extract is remarkably effective for this condition. The extract shrinks the enlarged prostate back to normal size by restoring androgen balance. By inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, the extract removes the trigger for BPH. The extract works just as well as finasteride, widely used to treat BPH, but without the side effects associated with this drug.

For example, the study shows that the extract has a negligible effect on sperm counts whereas finasteride causes serious depletion. Rauwolfia vomitoria is a welcome therapeutic option for BPH which is a very common problem for men.

This research was conducted in Dr. Jun Yan’s laboratory at Nanjing University.

Anti-Cancer Effects of a Combination of Four Green Teas

A new paper by Sylvie Beljanski and John Hall PhD is scheduled to be published in February 2021. This new publication provides scientific background for the green tea study recently published by Dr. Qi Chen’s group at Kansas University Medical Center.

The Kansas lab found that extracts of a combination of green teas including Ceylon Green, Bi Lou Chun, Organic Gunpowder and Dragonwell inhibited the growth of multiple human cancer cell lines. The four green tea extract showed broad spectrum anti-cancer activity that was superior to other popular green and black teas that were tested for comparison.

The new article tells us how these four green teas were originally determined to be worthy of analysis for their anti-cancer action. The answer is that all four green teas were identified in Professor Beljanski’s Oncotest which detects the anti-cancer potential of any extract or compound. Each of the four green teas gave positive results as an anti-cancer agent in the Oncotest and all four of the teas were combined to create a blend with optimal anti-cancer potential. The cell-based studies conducted at Kansas confirm the prediction from the Oncotest that these four teas would provide impressive anti-cancer effect. The new article also provides insight into the green tea extract’s mechanism of action.

Potential Anti-Cancer Effect of Yellow Leaf Ginkgo Extract

Melanoma skin cancer cells release enzymes called RNAases, some of which function to promote cancer progression. Angiogenin is one example. It helps a cancer develop its own blood vessels to provide nutrients and oxygen necessary for tumor growth and spread. Inhibiting this enzyme would limit the cancer’s blood supply and curtail its growth. This is an important strategy for improved cancer therapies. New studies underway in Dr. Chen’s laboratory at Kansas University Medical Center are testing whether Beljanski’s yellow leaf Ginkgo extract can inhibit angiogenin. This extract made exclusively of golden yellow leaves through a unique extraction process is far different from any other Ginkgo extract commercially available.

Positive results will mean that the yellow leaf Ginkgo extract has anti-cancer effect by acting as a suppresser of angiogenin. The significance of these results goes beyond melanoma. Research has shown that the expression and activity of angiogenin is upregulated in many human tumors including breast, kidney, colorectal and lung cancers.
