Citral Discovery Against Cancer Citral has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments, however, the discovery of it's effectiveness against cancer is relatively new development.
In 2005, researchers at Ben Gurion University, Middle East discovered that Citral in lemongrass kills cancer cells in vitro, while leaving healthy cells unharmed.
The research team was led by Dr. Rivka ofir and Prof. Yakov Weinstein, incumbent of the Albert Katz Chair in Cell-Differentiation and Malignant Diseases, from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Ben Gurion University.
Citral is the key component that gives lemony aroma and taste in lemongrass (Cymbopogon Citratus). According to Dr. Ofir, the study found that Citral causes cancer cells to "commit suicide: using apoptosis, a mechanism called programmed cell death".
1 gm of lemongrass contains enough Citral to prompt the cancer cells to commit suicide. That's equivalent to just 1 teaspoon of Citralife lemongrass tea. While the Citral killed the cancerous cells, the normal cells were left unharmed.
The success of their research led them to the conclusion that lemongrass containing Citral may be consumed as a preventive measure against certain cancerous cells.
