Ultrasound gives proof that GliSODin protects the walls of arteries

July 24, 2007

French researchers used a high definition ultrasound to evaluate the level of plaque on the walls of the carotid arteries. These arteries are critical and supply the head and brain with blood and oxygen. The patients enrolled in the study were high risk for developing cardiovascular disease; they smoked, or were obese, and had high blood pressure. They ranged in age between 30 and 60. A group of these high risk patients were given GliSODin. The supplement improved the thickness of the carotid artery lining in both the intima and media layers demonstrating a protective effect for the cardiovascular system. The study is published in the February 2007 issue of journal Allergy and immunology.

Turmeric has been clinically studied in a wide array of illnesses with successful results

Turmeric supplying Curcumin has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous effects. In phase I human clinical studies it has been used in doses as high as 3600mg to 8000mg daily for 4 months without toxicity. The effects of Turmeric were studied in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory eye diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, chronic pancreatitis, psoriasis, hyperlipidemia (high levels of blood fats), and with various cancers. The preliminary results supported the efficacy of Turmeric in these diseases in these clinical studies. The study review is published in Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology, 2007;595.
