Betacyanins, the Anti Liver Steatosis Phytochemical

The liver is the largest internal organ that not only filters the blood coming from the intestinal system but also protects our body against chemical and drug toxicity.

Additionally, the liver also produces cholesterol that plays an essential role to aid digestion, produce vitamin D and steroid hormone and build strong cell membranes.

Believe it or not, the liver also produces antioxidant enzymes which inhibit free radical oxidation and interact with the hormone insulin to store glucose in the form of glycogen.

Hepatic steatosis is a condition caused by the accumulation of fat in the liver. Liver steatosis can be classified into 2 types

* Alcoholic liver steatosis is caused by over-consumption of alcohol over time.

* Non-Alcohol Steatosis (NASH) is a condition of accumulation of excess fat in the liver in people who drink little or no alcohol. ... Non-Alcohol Steatosis is considered a major cause of liver scarring and cirrhosis.

Most common symptoms of liver steatosis are jaundice, abdominal swelling (ascites), enlarged blood vessels just beneath the skin's surface, enlarged breasts in men, enlarged spleen and red palms.

If you have some of the aforementioned symptoms, please check with your doctor to rule out the possibility.

Conventionally, there is no effective treatment for liver steatosis. Weight loss and weight management through a combination of a healthy diet and exercise are the most recommendations.

Some researchers suggested that the rise of liver steatosis in the US may be correlated to the promotion of a high-fat diet over the past few decades.

Dr. Arisqueta L, the lead scientist wrote, "High-fat diet (HFD) feeding or leptin-deficient mice are extensively used as models resembling features of human nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)".

And, "The concurrence of experimental factors as fat content and source or total caloric intake leads to prominent differences in the development of the hepatic steatosis and related disturbances".

Betacyanins are phytochemicals in the class of red and yellow indole-derived pigments, belonging to the group of Betalains, found abundantly in beets, chard, etc.

On finding a natural pigment for the prevention and treatment of liver steatosis, researchers examined whether betanin (from natural pigments, a member of betacyanins) anti-oxidant properties against paraquat-induced liver injury in Sprague-Dawley rats.

Paraquat injected intraperitoneally into rats to induce liver toxicity randomly assigned to 4 groups: a control group, a paraquat group, and two groups received betanin at doses of 25 and 100mg/kg/day three days before and two days after administered paraquat.

Administration of betanin inhibited the elevated serum aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase levels of the paraquat rats.

Betanin treated group also enhanced the production of antioxidant enzymes that counter the overexpression of free radicals induced oxidative stress.

Furthermore, betanin treated group also increased the expression of an enzyme associated with detoxification.

Moreover, liver mitochondrial damage caused by paraquat injection also was reduced by the administration of betanin.

In other words, all parameters associated with the onset of liver damage that causes steatosis developing were decreased substantially in the animals treated with betanin than in those who received paraquat alone.

Based on the results, researchers after taking other factors into account wrote, "Betanin had a protective effect against paraquat-induced liver damage in rats. The mechanism of the protection appears to be the inhibition of CYP 3A2 expression and protection of mitochondria".

Taken altogether, betacyanins processed abundantly bioactive ingredient betanin may be considered a remedy for the prevention and treatment of liver steatosis, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Intake of betacyanins in the form of supplement should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.

Maternal Yoga in Reduced Risk of Preeclampsia

Epidemiological studies suggested that yoga intervention may be used to assist standard care treatment in reduced risk of pre-eclampsia onset during pregnancy.

Pre-eclampsia (PE) is a disorder of pregnancy characterized by abnormally high blood pressure and often a significant amount of protein in the urine.


Yoga, the ancient practical technique for harmonized external and internal body well beings, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement, and gesture..... has been best known for people in the Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.

In the review literature published electronic database, PubMed, studies met the criteria and guideline selected included 54 citations in eight studies (10 reports) in the final analysis, after taking into account of other risk factors, researchers found that prenatal yoga displayed a significant effect in the improvement of many aspects including pre-eclampsia in healthy women in 4 studies in compared to control.

Further differentiation also suggested that high-risk pregnant women with morbidity factors such as obesity or advanced age, participated in yoga lesson were found to induce significantly fewer cases of pregnancy-induced hypertension, gestational diabetes, and intrauterine growth restriction, as well as a decrease in perceived stress levels in compared to control

Indeed, yoga class focused on poses, breathing exercises, meditation, visualization, guided imagery, and deep relaxation not only reduced psychological stress caused by previous pregnancy and various reasons in induction of nervous tension to precipitate hormone imbalance, particularly in keeping in check of Ang-(1-7), angiotensin I, angiotensin II and renin hormone which played a critical role in expression of high blood pressure in pregnancy but also improved blood circulation into the cervical region to provide necessary nutrients and oxygen for the fetus to growth normally.

Additionally, yoga lessons also brought back the rest with an awareness of presence, while letting them go or solved them in a positive way.

Moreover, yoga breathing, meditation in reduced stress also normalized the heart rate which has a strong implication in improved blood pressure and enhanced daily energy for a happy pregnancy outcome.

Interestingly, the study to examine the effect of stretching exercise in autonomic cardiac response, and the development of preeclampsia, conducted by the school of nursing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill of total of 124 women randomized to either stretching (n=60) or walking (n=64), after taking into other co-founders, found that yoga stretching may be used as a physiologic framework for possible beneficial effects in enhancing autonomic responses on reducing risks for preeclampsia as fewer cases of high blood pressure were observed in women participated in the yoga class in compared to control.

Promisingly, in a randomized clinical trial of the effects of the two types of physical exercises was conducted between November 2001 and July 2006 in Washtenaw County, Michigan with participants assigned to either the walking group (n = 41) or the stretching group (n = 38). walkers exercised an average of 36 (SD, 6) minutes at 18 weeks gestation, 34 (SD, 7) minutes at 28 weeks gestation, and 31 (SD, 12) minutes at the last week of the intervention, within target heart rate ranges 35% (SD, 32%) at 18 weeks gestation, 22% (SD, 25%) at 28 weeks gestation, and 17% (SD, 25%) at the last week of the intervention, researchers showed that at 20 weeks gestation and 4,848 (SE, 452) steps at 34 weeks gestation (p 0.05), the prevalence of preeclampsia risk of yoga group with stretched exercise was 2.6% in compared to 14.6% among the walkers.


However, observation, after taking into account of other confounders and including means of all gestation periods, the incidence of gestational hypertension, was 22 % for the walkers and 40% for the stretchers with no significant differences in birth outcomes of both groups.

The decreased incidence of preeclampsia in the yoga group was found to associate with increased antioxidant activity in reduced risk inflammatory expression in elevated risk high blood pressure caused by oxidative stress induced by lipid hydroperoxide production.
With all the information collected, Dr. Yeo S, the led researchers said: " Regular stretching exercises may promote endogenous antioxidants among women at risk for preeclampsia."


The findings suggested that yoga intervention as an integrated form of stretched exercise may have a positive and profound effect on the reduced onset of preeclampsia, particularly in women in a group of a high risk pregnancy.

Yoga In Improved Psychological and Physical Aspects in Cancer Patients and Survivors

Yoga therapy may be used as secondary therapy and integrated form of exercise to improve the physical and emotional well-being of cancer patients and survivors, a US university study suggested.

Cancers are the class of disease characterized by cell growth disorderly and uncontrollably in the body.

Yoga, the ancient practical technique for harmonized external and internal body well-being, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement, and gesture..... has been best known for people in the Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.

In the review literature of general introduction to yoga and detailed of yoga research in cancer, 9 selected studies satisfied the criteria indicated that yoga therapy yielded modest improvements in sleep quality, mood, stress, cancer-related distress, cancer-related symptoms, and overall quality of life in cancer patients and survivors.

Furthermore, the study also addressed that the analysis of the selected studies also expressed the efficacy of yoga in support for the feasibility of cancer patients.

Indeed, yoga practice with breathing and meditation was found to express a significant effect in the induction of relaxation and calmness of central nervous system, thus reducing psychological symptoms caused by chronic stress by bringing back the presence while dealing them in a positive way.

Additionally, long term yoga participated also found to restore the hormone imbalance caused by the central nervous system in stimulated overproduction of certain hormones involved stress expression.

More interestingly, the study of 8 pediatric cancer out-patients (4 male; 4 female; Mage  = 11.88, SD = 4.26) participated in the 12-week intervention consisting of supervised yoga sessions 2 times/week to determine the feasibility and benefits of a 12-week community-based yoga intervention on health-related quality of life (HRQL), select physical fitness outcomes and PA levels (PAL) with participants (patients and parent proxies) completed measures assessing HRQL, physical fitness and PAL at baseline and post-intervention, suggested that 12 weeks of yoga program displayed significant improvements in patients' parent-reported HRQL, including, functional mobility, hamstring flexibility and total PA level (P = 0.02) in compared to pre-intervention.

The improvements of physical fitness were attributed to yoga postures in enhanced stretching of muscle strength as well as promoted blood circulation.

Interestingly, the 12 weeks lesson also enhanced physical fitness in pediatric cancer out-patients as well as improving sedentary behavior as yoga program was found to utilize as a ‘stepping-stone’ toward regularly physical activity and the associated co-morbidities through balancing the expression of hyper-arousal or hypo-arousal of the nervous system in reaction to stress.

Dr. Wurz A, the led authors said, "Increasing rates of survival present a new set of psychosocial and physical challenges for children undergoing treatment for cancer. Physical activity (PA) has been shown to be a safe and effective strategy to mitigate the significant burden of cancer and its treatments, with yoga increasingly gaining recognition as a gentle alternative".

Amazingly, according to the study of the effect of therapeutic yoga on child and parental reports of quality of life in children hospitalized with oncological diagnoses conducted a study of Six children participated in 5 yoga sessions over 2 months with The PedsQL 4.0 administered to each child and participating parent/caregivers at baseline, showed that physically, yoga therapy displayed a statistically significant differences in child perception of gross motor function through developing balance and flexibility in controlled body's movements.


Taking all together, yoga may be used as secondarily therapeutic practicing in combined with standard treatment for improvement of psychological and physical aspects in cancer patients and survivors.

Bilberry Protects the Arteries Against the Risk of Atherosclerosis in Vivo

Atherosclerosis, one of the major cause of the cardiovascular disease is a medical condition caused by the accumulation of plaque on the arterial wall. Over time, the condition can lead to narrowing the arteries or blocked arteries, leading to reduce oxygenated blood flow to the heart and other parts of the body.

Arteries are blood vessels carried the oxygen-rich blood to the heart before passing them to the tissues and organs.

Plague is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. In other words, cholesterol that cannot be returned to the liver for reuse may have a strong impact to induce plaque accumulation.

People at the early stage of atherosclerosis are asymptomatic. However, over time, the continued buildup of plaque on the arterial wall can cause symptoms of chest pain or angina shortness of breath. fatigue. confusion, due to a blockage or reduce blood flow.


Although there are many risk factors associated with the onset of atherosclerosis, an unhealthy lifestyle, particularly in people who follow the pattern of the Western diet has been found in many patients with the disease.


Dr. Matthias Nahrendorf, the lead scientist wrote, "Diet, exercise, stress, and sleep are receiving attention as environmental modifiers of chronic inflammatory diseases, including atherosclerosis, the culprit condition of myocardial infarction and stroke".

And, "Accumulating data indicate that psychosocial stress and a high-fat, high-cholesterol diet aggravate the cardiovascular disease, whereas regular physical activity and healthy sleeping habits help prevent it".

Bilberry is a species of low-growing shrubs in the genus Vaccinium, belonging to the family Ericaceae, native to Northern Europe.

The plant berry has been used as herbs in traditional medicine for the treatment of acute and chronic diarrhea, gastritis, gastric ulcer, and duodenal ulcer, enterocolitis, ulcerative colitis, anemia, cystitis, kidney disease, and psoriasis, diabetes, etc.

On finding a potential compound for the treatment of atherosclerosis researchers evaluated a nutritional supplementation with a bilberry anthocyanin-rich extract (BE) in the atherosclerotic lesion development in apolipoprotein E-deficient (apoE⁻/⁻) mice.

On the early stage of atherosclerosis development in tested mice, BE significantly improved hypercholesterolemia associated with plaques built-up without affecting the plasmatic antioxidant status.

According to the nutrigenomic analysis, BE modulated the expression of the gene involved in different cellular processes such as oxidative stress, inflammation, transendothelial migration, and angiogenesis, that lead to atherosclerosis development/protection.


In other words, BE enhanced the mechanisms involved in the preventive action of bilberry anthocyanin-rich extract against atherosclerosis.


On the development of atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E-deficient mice (apo E(-/-)). Apo E(-/-) mice, researchers compared the efficacy of two bilberry extracts, one rich in anthocyanins extracted from untreated bilberries (BE) and a second one extracted from yeast-fermented bilberries (FBE).


According to the 16 weeks a diet supplemented with 0.02% of either BE or FBE, both bilberry extracts led to significant inhibition of plaque development, without affecting the levels of oxidative stress parameters or lipid profiles.

These results strongly suggested that bilberry extract inhibited plaque development through other unknown mechanisms.

By comparative tests, fermentation generates new bioactive compounds FBE are more effective in attenuating progression of the atherosclerotic lesions compared to those of BE.

Taken altogether, bilberry may be considered a functional remedy for the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, pending to the validation of larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Yoga as an Integrated Form of Exercise in Reduced Risk and Treatment of Postpartum Depression

Postpartum yoga practice may have a profound and positive effect in reduced risk and treatment of
postpartum depression, epidemiological studies suggested.
Postpartum depression is a medical condition suffered by a mother following childbirth, as a result of hormonal changes and psychological adjustment to motherhood,......affecting Up to 20% of women.


In a study of 57 postpartum women with scores ≥12 on the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale randomly assigned to a yoga class consisted of 16 classes over 8 weeks.(N = 28) or wait-list control (N = 29) group, researchers found that yoga group demonstrated a significantly greater rate of improvement in depression, anxiety, and HRQOL, in compared to the control and 78% of women in the yoga group experienced clinically significant change, according to the Reliable Change Index analyses.

Indeed, yoga participation in deep relaxation and meditation creates a state of self-consciousness
to cope with psychological stress caused by postpartum depression by accepting the presence with the positive feelings and dealing with the situation with love and care.



Physically, by driving the mental expression in the right direction to deal with stress in the right way, yoga intervention eventually induced the returning of proper hormone secretion.

Psychologically, yoga breathing and meditation promoted central nervous system calmness and relaxation may have strong implications in reduced psychic symptoms such as anxiety, depression, stress...improving sleep pattern, particularly in relieving sleep deprivation, one of the major risk factor of postpartum depression.

More importantly, Dr. MacDonald C, in the study of "mother and baby yoga is good for you" suggested that postpartum yoga class can also benefit both mother and baby.

Truly, with the mother and baby attended the class together, yoga exercise not only induced a strong bond and improved relationship between mother and baby but also brought the mother back to the presence in loving and caring of the baby in the natural motherhood consciousness, through deep breathing and meditation.

There is no doubt that yoga stretching and posturing also had a profound and therapeutic effect in restoring the pelvic floor and strengthened the abdomen and reduced physical pain in the mother as a result of muscles overstretch in months of pregnancy and improved the baby digestive system and physical health, acceptance of new environment and interaction with mother and "classmate".


Interestingly the study to evaluate the effect of yoga and Pilate exercises in treating postpartum depression, 28 women at 2-6 months postpartum assigned to 'Yoga and Pilates Exercise Programme for Postpartum Woman' in group sessions once a week for three months (12 times total) for 60 minutes each time by a professional coach, after taking into account of other confounders indicated that both Yoga and Pilate interventions showed a significant decrease of postpartum depression, after completing the program and displayed significant reductions of body weight, body fat percentage, fat mass, and basic metabolic rate.
Dr. Ko YL the led authors said, "physical activities benefited the physical and mental health of postpartum women and enhanced their quality of life".

Taking all together, Yoga as an integrated form of study may be used as an adjunct exercise in reduced risk and treatment of Postpartum depression.

Cucumber Extract, A Natural Prevention and Treatment of Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is an inflammatory disease mostly caused by work-related occupations and working environment, affecting the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves, over time.

The disease is most prevalent in the US. Approximately 10% in men and 13% in women over the age of 60 years suffer from the condition.

In general population, OA affecting over 25 million people in the United States alone.

And, the numbers are increasing at an alarming rate due to the aging of the population and the obesity epidemic.

Most common symptoms of OA include pain in the joint(s), reduced movement of the joint(s), joint(s) tenderness and stiffness, particularly, the loss of flexibility and bone spurs.


If you have experienced some of the symptoms that do not get better in a short period of time, you may have OA.

Believe it or not, patients with OA are associated with the complications of a rapid, complete breakdown of cartilage, bone death (osteonecrosis) and stress fractures.

As of today, there is no cure for the condition, Treatment of OA conventionally are focusing on reducing the pain and progression of the disease and improving quality of life.

If you are taking medication for the treatment of OA, please make sure that you know all the side effects
Prolonged use of Acetaminophen has been found to cause liver damage.

In the prevention and management of OA, some researchers suggested
* Prevented recurrent injury to damage menisci
The meniscus is an important issue because if its function in shock absorption and load distribution in the healthy knee joint(111). A meniscal tear can lead to knee osteoarthritis (OA), but knee OA can also lead to a spontaneous breakdown of meniscal tear and damage to meniscal structure(112). Meniscus damage or recurrent injury might be considered as a signifying feature of incipient OA in middle-aged and elderly people(113).

*. Take precaution if your occupation is at increased risk of osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most important diseases as it frequently affects the active age group of the population contributed to the loss of working hours and of disability(114)(115)(117). Compressive, torsional, pulling and angular movements common in certain occupations or sports may result in injuries of soft tissue, thus increasing the development of OA(116).

* Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercises
Enhanced muscle strengthening with neuromuscular electrical stimulation(118), aerobic exercises(119) and exercise(220) are effective in reducing pain and improving physical function in patients with mild to moderate OA of the knee(220).

* Maintain a healthy weight(117)
Increased BMI and obesity are associated with more severe cartilage degeneration(121)(123) as assessed by both morphological and quantitative MRI measurements(122).

*Avoid dehydration
Dehydration has shown to reduce the mobility of collagen amino acid residues and carbon sugar ring structures in glycosaminoglycans, according to University of Michigan(124) of that may affect the functions of cartilage and induce the risk of OA(125), but dehydration effects are reversible, through the restoration of molecular structure and mobility(124).

* Avoid intake of inflammatory foods
Loading up on junk foods and fast foods contains a high amount of trans fat of that increases the risk of inflammation(126) exhibit pro-inflammatory effects(127) causes of osteoarthritis (OA)(128). Red meat, eggs, and wheat products all contain a high amount of arachidonic acid, too much arachidonic acid may be worsen the inflammation process(129), etc.

* Eat your fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables containing high amount of nutrients and antioxidant(130), can enhance immune defense system(131)within the joint through direct influences of transferrin performance for reduction of inflammation(131)(132) as well as suppressing free radicals and the chain of free radicals reaction cause of elevating the swelling and promoting degeneration(133)(134).

* Replace regular beverage with green tea
Epigallocatechin-3-gallate, a green tea polyphenol(135)(136), was found to be effective in reducing inflammatory cytokines induced inflammatory diseases(137)(138).

The cucumber plant is a species of Cucumis Sativus, belongings to the family Cucurbitaceae and native to Western Asia. It is a creeping vine with roots in the ground and grows up with the support of frames.

On finding a natural compound for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA), age-related disease researchers compared the efficacy of Q-Actin™, an aqueous extract of Cucumis sativus (cucumber; CSE) against GC in the management of moderate knee OA.

The randomized double-blind, parallel-group clinical trial included 122 patients (56 males and 66 females) aged between 40 and 75 years with moderate knee OA took place in three different centers

Participants were divided evenly into 2 groups (n= 61) the GC group received orally the generally prescribed dose of 1,350 mg of GC twice daily and the CSE group received orally10 mg twice daily of CSE in a 180-day intervention.

According to the results from the Western Ontario McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), the WOMAC score of CSE group was decreased by 22.44% and 70.29% on Days 30 and 180, respectively, compared to a 14.80% and 32.81% to the decrease in the GC group.


Similarly, the GC also showed a decrease of pain score compared to the CSE group without inducing any adverse effect.

Based on the finding, researchers said, "The use of 10 mg CSE, twice daily, was effective in reducing pain related to moderate knee OA and can be potentially used in the management of knee pain, stiffness, and physical functions related to OA".


In order to reveal additional information about the anti-inflammatory properties of cucumber, researchers examined the antioxidant effect on cucurbitacins (Cub), a major compound found in the fruit.

Compared to grape-seed extract, wheat, alfalfa, and ginkgo biloba extracts, CuB showed a broad spectrum radical-scavenging capacity.


CuB exerted a similar activity to that of the aforementioned study by inhibiting the expression of TNF in macrophages and lymphocytes and the expression of pro-inflammatory mediators such as nitric-oxide synthase-2 and cyclooxygenase-2.

Collectively, Dr. Adebowale Bernard Saba, the lead scientist wrote," It is general knowledge among researchers working with natural medicinal products that any of the cucurbitacins have the attributes or the potential to become fully patented as anti-inflammatory...drug".

Taken altogether, cucumber processed abundantly amount of CuB may be used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Intake of CuB in the form of supplement should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.

Yoga Practice in treatment of Illicit Substance Abuse

Epidemiological studies strongly suggested that yoga intervention may have positive and therapeutic effects for the treatment of illicit substance abuse.

The review of literature published online of database from January 1980 to January 2009 to evaluate the effects of yoga in patients with addictive disorders, based on the standard criteria and guidelines, suggested that yoga intervention exhibited some differential improvement across conditions which were maintained during follow-up, including psychiatric symptoms, particularly in the level of perceived stress, as well as improved mental state of substance abusers to accept unusual physical sensations, thus reducing from a strong urge and act impulsively.

Indeed, the reduced temptation and impulsive act of substance abusers to reach for illicit substance can be attributed to yoga relaxation and meditation intervention in induced harmonization of the body and mind in feelings of peace and comfort to deal with increased addictive temptation and to cop and tolerate the uncomfortable feelings and physical sensations that can lead to relapse.

Some researchers suggested that the developing positive relationship with physical sensation is one of the reasons to facilitate the calmness and relaxation in bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment, while letting go of them or deal them in a positive way, thus reducing the urge for sedatives, pain relievers, amphetamines, and alcohol.

In the aspect of hormonal imbalance caused by stress-induced anxiety disorders, depression, and posttraumatic stress disorder and substance abuse, yoga intervention expressed a significant effect in reduced stress through meditation and relaxation by calming the mind and body through reduced tension of CNS. Without the influence of stress, hormone balancing was automatically restored, particularly in the secretion of stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline.

More importantly, by bringing the yoga participants into a relaxed state, yoga intervention improved the mind to a reaction to the presence and focus on the deal the compulsion in the right way to prevent relapsing.

Dr. Skanavi S, the led author said, " Practice of mindfulness may develop the ability to maintain perspective in response to strong emotional states and mood fluctuations and increase the saliency of natural reinforcers. Mindfulness-based programs require intensive participation, and should therefore be proposed to highly motivated patients".


Not surprisingly, in the testing of the general belief that the efficacy of incorporating mindfulness practices into the treatment of addiction, Dr, Witkiewitz K, the led authors conducted a review of theoretical models of mindfulness in the treatment of addiction and several hypothesized mechanisms of change and found that yoga mindfulness addresses a relapse prevention (MBRP), including session content, treatment targets, and client feedback may be considered as a secondary therapeutic exercise in combined with standard treatment in treating illicit substance abuse patients.


According to the Kasturba Medical College, Manipal University in reviews the philosophical origins, current scientific evidence, and clinical promise of yoga and mindfulness as complementary therapies for addiction, yoga mindfulness improved the well being of the skills, insights, and self-awareness may be used in target multiple psychological, neural, physiological, and behavioral processes implicated in addiction and relapse.

Truly, yoga mindfulness enhanced the relaxation of calmness state to improve participant desire to control the circumstances while building physical strength, endurance, and psychological awareness in a time of stress and sadness...... to face the presence directly in a new way.
Furthermore, the study also indicated that the above treatment have been proven in some well-designed clinical trials and experimental laboratory studies on smoking, alcohol dependence, and illicit substance use, but preventing addiction was lack.

Dr. Khanna S, the led author said, " ....better understand what types of yoga and mindfulness-based interventions work best for what types of addiction, what types of patients, and under what conditions".

Based on the information in analysis, the study also emphasized that yoga mindfulness may be used as an integrated form of intervention to reduced both psychological and physical aspects in patients with illicit substance abuse, especially in reduced the impulsive urge of temptation.
