  • Furthermore, EGCG, gallic acid, quercetin, and punicalagin induced apoptosis and resulted in cell cycle arrest in the majority of the leukaemia cell lines. (
  • It has been shown that this most popular berry / veggie, filled with lycopene, a healthy nutrient for the heart, significantly lowers blood pressure, sometimes making treatments Dicamentos totally useless. (
  • Contains lycopene , saw palmetto and oat straw extracts, damiana leaf , pumpkin seed , pygeum bark and nettle leaf . (
  • In the present study, we investigated the effect of nonalcoholic red wine extract and one of its constituents, quercetin, on the oxidative resistance of LDL. (
  • A screening blood sample showed that all subjects had values within the reference intervals for full blood count (white blood cells, platelets, and red blood cells), hemoglobin, hematocrit, and liver enzymes (alkaline phosphatase, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine transferase, and γ-glutamyltransferase) except for one whose alanine transferase concentration was slightly outside the reference interval (70 U/L). A total of 21 subjects completed the study. (
  • A recent study has used purple corn extract to effectively lower this unwanted side effect in mice who had been injected with an ROS-increasing cancer drug. (
  • For example, a study in 43,880 men showed that habitual intakes as high as 613 mg per day of anthocyanins were correlated to a 14% lower risk of nonfatal heart attacks ( 13 ). (
  • A 2017 study showed that rats that ate extracts from a strain of blue corn alongside a Western-style diet had less abdominal fat, better blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and lower blood pressure than rats that ate only the Western-style diet. (
  • That same study showed that Spectra™ also provides powerful antioxidant support, reducing free radical production. (
  • And the study didn't show whether failure to switch treatment regimens resulted in diabetes complications. (

  • Good for Your Brain - A 2003 study published in the Archives of Pharmacal Research showed the memory-enhancing effects of eating purple sweet potatoes. (
  • 1 The same study showed elderberry to be effective against 10 strains of influenza virus and compared its effectiveness favorably to the known anti-influenza activities of oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and amantadine. (
