• EGCG from Green Tea may decrease the risk of bladder cancer

    Feb 12, 2007
    Bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men and ninth most common in women. In this study, the human bladder cancer cell line T24 was treated with the Green Tea Polyphenol EGCG. The higher the dosage of EGCG and the longer it was in contact with the kidney bladder cancer the greater the impact.
  • EPA and DHA found in fish oils are now part of everyday medical practice

    Feb 09, 2007
    In the last several years EPA and DHA, the active constituents in Fish Oil Capsules, have been incorporated into the guidelines of Cardiac Societies for both prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. This is because of the positive results obtained in large scale epidemiological studies, vascular biology research, and most importantly in large-scale intervention trials. EPA and DHA have advanced from scientific research into everyday practice.
  • Scientists reach greater understanding of how Resveratrol inhibits pancreatic cancer cells

    Feb 08, 2007
    Resveratrol is a polyphenol found in red grape skins. It has anticancer and anti-inflammatory activity. MIC-1 (macrophage inhibitory cytokine) has anticancer activity and cancer cells treated with Resveratrol have higher levels of MIC-1.
  • Olive Leaf polyphenols may inhibit the HIV-1 virus in a unique manner

    Feb 07, 2007
    The HIV-1 virus does not have DNA, it only has RNA, yet it needs DNA to infect and multiply. The virus uses an enzyme known as integrase to combine its genetic material into that of the infected cell. Drugs used to control the AIDS virus inhibit the combining activity of genetic material at various levels typically by inhibiting an enzyme known as reverse transcriptase (this enzyme allows the retroviruses like HIV to create DNA by using RNA as the template).
  • Add GliSODin to your list of select supplements before major or invasive surgery

    Feb 06, 2007
    In invasive surgery, a surgery which is complex and requires penetration into internal areas of the body, blood flow is interrupted and then reintroduced to the involved tissues. This generates a large volume of cell destroying free radicals that lead to tissue damage. This damage is called ischemia-reperfusion injury; to put this in perspective similar damage occurs after a stroke or heart attack due to the reintroduction of blood.
