Black Bean The Best Anti Inflammatory Functional Food

Inflammation is a natural response of the immune system to protect our body against injury and damage induced infection.

Black bean, a small roughly ovoid legume with glossy black shells, genus Phaseolus, belongings to the family Fabaceae can be bought in most grocery stores all around the year in dried and canned forms. It is believed that black bean was first domesticated growth in South America.

Black or common bean with abundant phytochemicals may be considered as functional foods in attenuated pro-inflammatory expression induced by immunity during injured, a respectable institute postulated.

In a randomized, controlled, crossover trial of 12 adults with metabolic syndrome (MetS) consumed one of three meals (black bean (BB), fiber matched (FM), and antioxidant capacity matched (AM)) study, researchers found that blood sample collection before (fasting) and five hours after the meal, black bean intake group showed a significant expression of plasma antioxidant capacity and inflammatory cytokines in response to meals differences over time.

This result showed strong support of black bean intake reduced levels of oxidative stress-induced inflammation and enhanced production of antioxidants.

Dr. Reverri EJ the lead researcher said, " Inclusion of black beans with a typical Western-style meal attenuates postprandial insulin and moderately enhances postprandial antioxidant endpoints".


In other words, adding a portion of black bean may improve insulin resistance and induced antioxidant activity to modify the risk and treatment of the inflammatory metabolic syndrome.
On colon inflammation triggered by high-fat diet (HD)-induced obesity in mice, mice fed with black bean showed a remarkable effect in a reduced pro-inflammatory expression such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-1β, and IL-6, by attenuating changes associated with HD-induced colon inflammation.


Additionally, black bean fed mice also demonstrated a significant improvement of antioxidants through modulated colon mRNA expression and reduced macrophage infiltration into adipose tissue, causing inflammation.

Furthermore, Dr. the lead author expressed, " BAB ameliorates HD-induced disorders such as obesity and colitis by improving mucosal barrier protection and reducing endotoxemia, as well as by inactivating NF-κB to decrease the production of proinflammatory cytokines".


Other study in support to the efficacy of black bean in ameliorated inflammation suggested that bean diets reduced not only mRNA expression of exhibited production of colonic inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-9, IFN-γ, and IL-17A) and increased anti-inflammatory IL-10 (P< 0·05), but also systemically reduced circulating cytokines (IL-1β, TNFα, IFNγ, and IL-17A, P< 0·05) and dextran sodium sulfate-induced oxidative stress and colitis in animal model.


The findings suggested that black bean may be used as a functional food for the prevention of inflammation after body injure or damage by reduced levels of pro-inflammatory and increased levels of anti-inflammatory cytokines.

Ginger, May Be A Natural Alternative for Testosterone Hormone Therapy with No Side Effects, According to Studies

Scientists may have a pungent spice that processes the potential to increased levels of testosterone deficiency, particularly in the elderly with no side effects according to studies.

Testosterone is a steroid hormone found in humans made mostly from the testicles in men and a small amount in women's ovaries.

According to epidemiological studies, treatment for hypogonadism is on the rise, particularly in the population due to natural reduced production of levels of testosterone other than normal aging.

Testosterone production starts to produce significantly during puberty and dip after age 30.

In males, the early onset of reduced production of levels of testosterone is associated with a highly prevalent burden of comorbid medical conditions and polypharmacy complicates compared to those of normal aging,


Also, low levels of testosterone in males are associated with the early onset of metabolic syndrome in the induction of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.


Conventional medicine used for the treatment in this population is found to be a unique challenge to clinicians.


Apart from normal aging, low levels of testosterone are found to induce symptoms of decreased sex drive, low energy, weight gain, the risk of depression, and moodiness, loss of hair and thinner bones.


If you are experiencing some of the above symptoms, you may have low levels of testosterone. Please make sure you check with your doctor to rule out the possibility.

Dr. Giagulli VA, in examining the complications of testosterone in men wrote, "Testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS) induces several negative effects that generally involve different organs such as testis, bone, skeletal muscle, and heart, leading to reduction in testis function, causing osteoporosis, strongly reducing muscle mass, decreasing exercise capacity and strength and facilitating heart failure".


And, " Approximately 25% of patients affected by chronic heart failure (CHF) is characterized by plasma Testosterone (T) levels below normal ranges also related to disease progression".

These results clearly suggested apart from normal aging, males with testosterone deficiency are associated with the complications of many ailments.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) or ginger root, the second superfood used for thousands of years by mankind, is the genus Zingiber, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to Tamil.

The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine to treat dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.

Scientists on finding a natural compound which processes a function in enhancing and protecting primary sex hormone in males examined the effects of ginger activity in enhancing testosterone production in males.


By searching the PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science databases for English language articles (full texts or abstracts) from November 1991 through August 2018 using the keywords "ginger" and "Zingiber officinale" versus "testosterone" linking the effects of ginger on testosterone researchers found that ginger supplementation, particularly in oxidative stress conditions, enhances testosterone production in males.
The mechanisms by which this occurs mainly by enhancing luteinizing hormone (LH) production in stimulating the Leydig cell production of testosterone, increasing the level of cholesterol in synthesizing male sex steroid, testosterone (T), by reducing oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation in the testes.


Furthermore, the application of ginger also inhibited the expression of free radicals by promoting the activity of the antioxidant enzymes.

Ginger also normalized the blood glucose by increasing blood flow to the testes.


Moreover, ginger improved the production of testosterone by increasing testicular weight and recycling testosterone receptors.


The finding strongly supports the use of ginger in the enhanced testosterone production for treatment of diseases associated with testosterone deficiency.

In order to reveal more information about ginger in the production of testosterone by examing the
ginger effects on multiple animal models, including 60adult male Sprague Dawley rats divided into * Group A served as normal control,

* Group B received 0.3% lead acetate in drinking water,

*Group C and group D received supplementary 0.5 and 1 gm/Kg body weight of ginger respectively along with lead acetate in drinking water.

During the experiments, co-administration with different doses of ginger showed a significant rise in the testosterone levels in teste, compared to the lead-treated group.
Interestingly, ginger application at different doses showed no significant change of LH levels, compared to the rise in the previous ginger treatment,

These results strongly suggested there must other compounds from ginger that exhibit the increased levels of LH that are not mentioned in both studies.


Taken altogether, ginger may be considered a functional remedy for the prevention and combined with primary medicine for the treatment for diseases associated with testosterone deficiency.

Asparagus, The Miracle Anti Diabetes and Diabetes Complications Functional Food, Scientists Say

Asparagus may have a potential and profound effect in reduced risk of diabetes in patients with no diabetes and diabetic complications in patients with diabetes, some studies suggested.


Diabetes is a condition characterized by insufficient insulin entering the bloodstream to regulate the glucose.

The actual causes of diabetes are debatable. As researchers do not know why some people without genetic mutations are susceptible to disease development, while others do not.

Researchers believed that the onset of diabetes type 2 is associated with a set of risk factors. According to the retrospective cohort study, using the data of 8337 adolescent respondents from Add Health (1994-2008) including 5131 non-Hispanic Whites, 1651 non-Hispanic Blacks, 1223 Hispanics, and 332 American Indians/Alaska Natives lead by College of Medicine, Washington State University,

* Pre-diabetes and diabetes were more prevalent in non-Hispanic blacks (55% and 12%, respectively) than in American Indians/Alaska Natives (43% and 11%),


* Higher body mass index and family history of diabetes were associated with a higher risk of pre-diabetes and diabetes.

* Female sex was associated with a lower risk of pre-diabetes compared to the male counterparts.

Furthermore
* Physical inactivity, sedentary behaviors, or fast food consumption are associated with independent and preventive risk factors that induce the early onset of prediabetes and diabetes.


Most people with prediabetes do not experience any symptoms. However, untreated diabetes or diabetes that do not manage properly, may lead to serious complications of cardiovascular diseases, kidney damage, nerve, foot and eye damage, skin wound that can heal,....... and dementia such as Alzheimer's disease.

Asparagus is a flowering plant belonging to species the genus Asparagus, native to the western coasts of northern Spain, north to Ireland, Great Britain, and northwest Germany, northern Africa and western Asia.

The vegetable has been used from early times as a vegetable and medicine, because of its delicate flavor and diuretic properties.

In Streptozotocin (90 mg/kg) injected in 2-d-old Wistar rat pups to induce non-obese type 2 diabetes, researchers found that rats treated with a methanolic extract of A. officinalis seeds (250 and 500 mg/kg per d) expressed lowering fasting blood glucose, improved serum insulin, total antioxidant status and qualitative and quantitative in β-cell function(1) compared to placebo group.

Additional observation also discovered that the methanolic extract also exerts a significant effect in reduced complications of kidney disease by inhibiting renal hypertrophy, polyuria, hyperfiltration, microalbuminuria and abnormal changes in the renal tissue(1).

Furthermore, asparagus extract enhanced production of antioxidants from the host in neutralize the unbalanced ratio of antioxidants and free radical in initiated oxidative stress(1) induced by injection of Streptozotocin (90 mg/kg) effectively.


Moreover, according to the study by Smt. Kashibai Navale College of Pharmacy, oral administration of ethanolic extract of Asparagus racemosus (EEAR) at a dose level of 100 and 250 mg/kg daily for 4 weeks, significantly reduced the expression of streptozotocin-induced early diabetic nephropathy in compared with a control group(2).

Dr. Somania R, the lead researcher said, " A. racemosus treatment significantly decreased plasma glucose, creatinine, ..... total cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Renal hypertrophy,....and abnormal changes in the renal tissue".

This efficacy can be attributed to the extract's anti-diabetic effects by improving insulin secretion and β-cell function(2).

Interestingly, the 21 days continuous administration of aqueous extract of asparagus by-product (AEA) to examine the hypoglycaemic effect in a streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rat model indicated(3), found
* Rat treated with the extract showed to decrease fasting serum glucose and triglyceride levels but markedly increased body weight and hepatic glycogen level.

* In an oral glucose tolerance test, both the blood glucose level measured at 30, 60 and 120 min after glucose loading and the area under the glucose curve showed a significant decrease after AEA treatment.

* The extract also exhibited the hypoglycaemic and hypotriglyceridaemic effects in preventing diabetic complications associated with hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia (3).

Taking all together, there is no doubt that many aspects have contributed to the effectiveness of asparagus in reduced risk of diabetic complications and treatment of diabetes, but a large amount of asparagus extract intake should only be prescribed by related field specialists.

However, further data collection on large example size and multi centers clinical studies and trials performed with human consumption of the whole food during the course of the disease will be necessary to complete the picture of asparagus anti diabetes possibilities.

Beet Juice May be Potent Function Foods For Reduced Risk and Treatment of Pharynx Cancer

Beet may be a potential functional food for reduced risk and treatment of pharynx cancer, a recent study suggested

Pharynx cancer in a medical condition of abnormal cell growth in the pharynx region, including nasopharynx, hypopharynx, pharyngeal areas. In the late stage, the cancerous cells may travel a distance away to infect other healthy tissues.


Beet, best known as the beetroot or garden beet is a perennial plant with leafy stems growing to 1–2 m tall, belonging to the amaranth family.

According to the joint study lead by Vels University, the Phyto-synthetic method of producing silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) may be used as a mediator of beetroot in enhanced treatment of patients with pharynx cancer.

In the pharynx cancer cell line, the silver nanoparticles enhanced by the beetroot effect through induction of cytotoxicity to cause cell death, without harming the nearby healthy cells.

Silver nanoparticles used to enhanced the function of biological treatment alone or combined with other pharmaceutical substances.

Measured by MTT assay, the inhibition efficacy may depend on the higher concentration proportionally of the photosynthetic substance.

AO/EtBr staining observations also found that Ag-NPs exhibited mechanism of cell death probably through the depolarization of mitochondrial membrane potential caused by depletion of energy in induced cell proliferation, subsequently, in cell apoptosis.

In fact, according to the World Cancer Research Foundation report, strong evidence suggested that vegetables with high nitrate-containing such as beet may have a potential therapeutic effect in reduced risk and treatment of various cancers, including cancer of the pharynx.


Unfortunately, beet juice with a high amount of nitrate may associate with gastric cancer risk according to the review of literature of a total of 22 articles consisting of 49 studies—19 studies for nitrates, 19 studies for nitrites, and 11 studies for N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).

Further analysis, discovered that high nitrates intake was associated with a weak but statistically significant reduced risk of gastric cancer, and increased consumption of nitrites and N-nitrosodimethylamine, NDMA may elevate the risk factors for gastric cancer.

But after taking account of other confounders, the risk of gastric cancer is not attributed to the intake of nitrate but nitrate beverage with N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) contamination.

Taken together, beet and beet juice with a high concentration of nitrate may be used as a functional food to ameliorate the risk and treatment of pharynx cancer, but people with stomach ailment should avoid drinking any nitrate beverage with N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) contamination.

Celery, the Natural Whole Food for Hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism?

Celery induced the decrease of thyroid hormone level may be used as a whole food medicine in balance thyroid hormone in patients with hyperthyroidism, a renowned institute study suggested.

According to an experimental study of 40 male rats divided into 5 groups of eight rats each, rats received celery leaf extract with doses of 50 and 100 mg/kg showed a serum levels of T3 (0.95±0.04 and 0.95±0.06, respectively) and T4 (5.42±0.85 and 5.87±0.89, respectively) hormones decreased in compared to control group.


Celery is a species of Apium graveolens, belonging to the family Apiaceae, cultivated all around the globe as a vegetable. Celery can grow to 1/2 m tall with stalks (leaf on the top) arranging in a conical shape joined at a common base.

Unfortunately, according to the joint research paper lead by Shahrekord University of Medical Sciences, intake of celery may induce hyperthyroidism, as a report indicated that a 48-year-old, with no history of any thyroid diseases, was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism due to daily consumption of 4 g of dried celery leaves for 45 days.

Dr. Rouhi-Boroujeni H, the lead author said, " Hyperthyroidism may be induced by consumption celery" and " Therefore, it can be assumed that celery induces hyperthyroidism as a side effect of this herb if it is used for a long term"


Furthermore, celery has shown to interact with conventional medicine used to regulate thyroid hormone inpatient with hypothyroidism. According to the study, in a report of a 55-year-old woman showed no improve hypothyroidism with a daily dose of thyroxine 100 microgram after injecting celery seed tablets.


Due to conflict results, it is up to readers to consult with their herbalists, before consumption of a large amount of celery seeds supplement daily in the long term for the amelioration of hyperthyroid or hypothyroidism.

Ginger, The Best Remedy for the Prevention and Treatment of Dysmenorrhea

Ginger may be the next generation of natural whole food for the prevention and treatment of menstrual pain, some scientists found.

Dysmenorrhea is a menstrual pain is pain occurred around a few days before menstruation begins.

The symptom normally lasts less than three days.

There are 2 types of dysmenorrhea
* Primary dysmenorrhea is the painful period with no other condition occurred most in the adolescence, affecting over 90% of women in the prime time of their reproductive years. In adolescence, some researchers suggested the symptoms are associated with the immature reproductive organs.

* Secondary dysmenorrhea is the painful period associated with the disorder in the woman's reproductive organs, such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, uterine fibroids, or infection.

Some women affected by the painful period may experience symptoms of It occurs in your lower abdominal pain can be felt in the hips, lower back, or thighs.

Other common symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, lightheadedness, headache, or fatigue.

There is no cure for dysmenorrhea. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), the most common treatment for both primary and secondary dysmenorrhea may be effective, however, the drugs can induce some serious side effects, including liver or kidney problems. and hypertension.

If you are currently using conventional medicine for the treatment of dysmenorrhea, please sure you know all the side effects for the preventive measure.
.
In the use of diet therapy for the prevention and treatment of dysmenorrhea, Dr. Dina Abadi Bavil, the lead scientist said, "Given the scores obtained on the lifestyle questionnaire, significant differences were observed between the groups with and without dysmenorrhea in terms of eating behavior (p=0.008), physical activity (p=0.011), stress (p=0.041), and social relationships".

These results clearly suggested that a healthy diet and lifestyle play important roles in the prevention
and treatment of dysmenorrhea

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) or ginger root, the second superfood used for thousands of years by mankind, is the genus Zingiber, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to Tamil.

The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine to treat dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.

On findings of a natural ingredient or whole food for the prevention and treatment of dysmenorrhea in the replacement of conventional medicine without inducing side effects, researchers examine the effects of ginger on primary dysmenorrhea, through searching the database of medical literature online.

Six selected studies were reviewed by 2 authors independently.

Ginger appeared more effective for reducing pain severity than placebo.

Ginger was found as effective as those of mefenamic acid (an NSAID).

The finding point to one conclusion, oral ginger could be an effective treatment for menstrual pain in dysmenorrhea.

Dr. Daily JW, the lead scientists in another search to find the evidence of ginger for treating primary dysmenorrhea launched an investigation by looking into the database of 12 medical libraries.

Seven met specific selection criteria were included in the review.

Four of the RCTs compared the therapeutic efficacy of ginger with placebo during the first 3-4 days of the menstrual cycle and were included in the meta-analysis.
The results of the in-depth differentiation showed that ginger processes a significant effect in reducing the Pain Visual Analogue Scale (PVAS) in subjects having primary dysmenorrhea.

Six RCTs out of 7 exhibited low to moderate of the risk of bias.

These results of the RCTs strongly indicated the suggestive evidence for the effectiveness of 750-2000 mg ginger powder during the first 3-4 days of the menstrual cycle for primary dysmenorrhea.

Taken altogether, ginger may be considered a functional remedy for the prevention and treatment of painful periods with no side effects.

Cruciferous Vegetables - The Best Whole Food Medicine for Reduced Risk and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease

In the review of the association between the consumption of green leafy vegetables and the risk of incidence of said diseases, intake of cruciferous vegetables is inversely associated with the incidences of total cardiovascular disease.


Cruciferous vegetables are the group of vegetables belonging to the family Brassicaceae, including cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli, etc.

Heart disease kills more than 2,000 Americans every day. Approximately 60 million Americans have heart disease. There are many causes of heart disease. Anything that serves to damage the inner lining of blood vessels and impedes the transportation of oxygen and nutrition to the heart can be defined as a risk of heart disease. Here are some early indication of heart disease symptoms:


In the study of cruciferous vegetables and its Role in Chronic Diseases, Indole-3-Carbinol, the chemical found only in the vegetable exerted several biological activities on cellular and molecular levels in the prevention of cancer and chronic illness such as cardiovascular disease.


Furthermore, the joint study lead by The First Hospital of Jilin University, also suggested that sulforaphane, a chemical found in cruciferous vegetables exhibited protection against cardiovascular disease through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in the reduction of oxidate stress, namely activation of Nrf2 in regulated the expression of antioxidant.

Dr. Bai Y, the lead author in the study said, " Several studies have highlighted the cardinal role played by the overproduction of reactive oxygen or nitrogen species in the pathogenesis of ischemic myocardial damage and consequent cardiac dysfunction".

Taking together, there is no doubt that the intake of cruciferous vegetables regularly is associated with reduced risk and treatment of cardiovascular disease. But in order to achieve the maximum benefits, moderate exercise accompanied by change of diet and lifestyle are necessary.

Asparagus, The Veggie and Plant That Boosts and Restores Cellular and Humoral Immunity, Scientists Say

Asparagus may have a profound and potential effect in reducing the risk of infection caused by microorganisms and preventing the overactive immune system to launch an attack of the body tissue, mistakenly, some scientists suggested.

The immune system is the set of cells and their activity against antigens or infectious agents that comprise the body's defense system against diseases.

The immune system does a great job of keeping people healthy and preventing infections. Besides foods and nutritional supplements, herbs also play an important role in helping the immune system defend against viruses and bacteria attacks.

Immunomodulatory activity is an action that improves the underactive immune function that is susceptible to the invasion of the foreign microorganism and inhibits the overactive immune system that causes autoimmune diseases.

In other words, the immunomodulatory activity involved antimicrobial agents is to modulate the genes involved in immune reactions, or of the neurohormonal system which regulates immune functions and any toxic or immunotoxic effects such as allergic reactions or destruction of immune effectors, that may cause harm to the body or interfere with the body normal function.


Dr. Marie-Thérèse Labro in the study "Immunomodulatory Effects of Antimicrobial Agents. Part I"
with the assessment of the battle against infections, microorganisms are still a threat to mankind. said, "we have now entered the third era of anti-infective strategy, which intends to favor the interplay between active molecules and the immune system. The first part of this review focuses on the potential immunomodulating properties of anti-infective agents, beginning with antibacterial and antiviral agents".

Truly, regardless of hundreds of antibacterial medicine were produced by mankind, the major concerns remain about the emergence of resistant and multidrug-resistant pathogens,


The doctor continued, "(Particularly), the antiviral drug armamentarium is comprised of only a few dozens of compounds which are highly pathogen-specific, and resistance is also a concern".


Therefore, improving the immune function as of today still is the best method in reducing the risk of infection and autoimmune diseases'

Asparagus is a flowering plant, belonging to species the genus Asparagus, native to the western coasts of northern Spain, north to Ireland, Great Britain, and northwest Germany, northern Africa, and western Asia.

The plant and food have been used from early times as a vegetable and medicine, because of its delicate flavor and diuretic properties.

In the investigate whether Asparagus racemosus Linn. (Fam. Liliaceae) an ethnopharmacologically acclaimed Ayurvedic medicinal plant processes the immunomodulatory effect against pathogens, researchers at the Centre for Phytochemistry and Pharmacology, by examining the action of an aqueous extract from the plant.

Observation of the immunoreactivity after injecting with the extract into the human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) isolated from whole blood on a ficoll-hypaque density gradient, showed a dose-dependent in stimulating the immune NK cell activity with a peak increase of 16.9±4.4% at 5.6 μg/ml.

Further differentiation suggested that ARP can achieve a higher stimulatory immune activity of 51.8±1.2% at 25 μg/ml.


These results suggested that A. racemosus processed an immune modulatory effect in potentiating the NK cell activity of the immune system.

Some researchers in the concerns of the current drug efficacies that suppress the immune function during the course of infection, conducted a study with an aim to find a natural compound with the similar efficacy but no side effects.

The combination of Asparagus racemosus, an immunomodulatory drug, in combination with cisplatin against Leishmania donovani was used in the testing against parasite-infected BALB/c mice.

According to the final report, infection of A. racemosus at a dose of 650 mg/kg b.wt./day for 15 days, in combination with cisplatin at the dose of 5 mg/kg b.wt./day for 5 days, intraperitoneally exerted a significant effect in enhancing the clearance of parasites as determined by Giemsa-stained liver impression smears.

Moreover, Besides having better killing activity, the combination group achieved increased production of disease resolving Th-1 response (IFN-gamma, IL-2) that has a function in killing intracellular parasites bacteria and viruses, heightened DTH (delayed-type hypersensitivity) response and augmented levels of antibody IgG2a.

The findings may suggest that A. racemosus in combination with cisplatin in L. donovani infected BALB/c mice boosted and restored both cellular and humoral immunity.


Importantly, after taking into account co and confounders, Dr. Sachdeva H, the lead author added, "Moreover, A. racemosus in combination with cisplatin not only provided enhanced protective immune response but also resulted in remarkable improved kidney and liver function tests as manifested by normal levels of SGOT, SGPT, alkaline phosphatase, creatinine and urea in blood plasma with normal histological observations as compared to only cisplatin-treated L. donovani infected BALB/c mice".

Taken all together, Asparagus used alone or in combination with cisplatin in L. donovani may be considered primary Immunomodulatory therapy for treatment for people with immune diseases.

However, further data collection on large example size and multi-centers studies performed with human consumption of the whole food during the course of the disease will be necessary to complete the picture of asparagus immunomodulatory possibilities.

Healthy Legume Navy Bean Prevents the Onset OF Oxidative Stress Naturally

Oxidative stress is a condition associated with overexpression of free radicals as a result of a chain reaction that can not be stopped.

More precisely, oxidative stress is caused by the imbalance of the ratio of free radicals and antioxidants produced by the host.

Antioxidants are stable atoms that inhibit oxidation.

Over time, oxidative stress induces damage of protein, lipid, and cell DNA can lead to the incidences of chronic disease, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancers.

Free radicals are unstable atoms with an unpaired electron in the outer ring. Therefore, in order for them to become stable, free radicals are ready to steal or donate an electron from or to other atoms.

Oxidative stress can be preventable if antioxidants in the body can pair all electrons in the outer ring.

The overexpression of free radicals is bad. However, free radicals generated from cell metabolism may play a critical role in the synthesis of energy and essential molecules and boosting the immune system.

Believed it or not, skin aging is a result of the accumulation of damage inflicted by reactive oxygen species (ROS), according to the free radical theory.

In a healthy individual, antioxidant enzymes produced by the body are more than enough to accounter the expression of free radicals occurred in our body every day.

However, in people with a weakened immune system such as the elderly, the intake of dietary antioxidants such as supplements or fruits rich with antioxidants may be the only option to improve levels of antioxidants in the body.

Artichoke is a perennial thistle of Cynara cardunculus species of the Cynara genus, belonging to the family Carduoideae native to Southern Europe around the Mediterranean.

The herbal plant has been used in traditional medicine as liver protective and detoxified agents, and to treat digestive disorders, abdominal pain gas and bloating, etc.

The small, white navy bean, also called pea bean or haricot, popular in both dry and green forms, is very popular in Britain and the US, native to Peru. It is now grown and consumed across the world, due to its numerous health benefits.

With an aim to find a potential compound for the prevention and treatment of diseases associated with oxidative stress, researchers examined the effects of black and navy beans containing non-digestible fermentable components (SCFA precursors) and phenolic compounds (phenolic acids, flavonoids, and anthocyanins) antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.

In an animal model, C57BL/6 mice were fed a 20 % navy bean or black bean flour-containing diet or an isoenergetic basal diet (BD) for 2 weeks before the induction of experimental colitis via 7 d dextran sodium sulfate (DSS, 2 % (w/v) in the drinking water) exposure, researchers showed that
* Cooked black and navy bean diet increased caecal SCFA and fecal phenolic compound concentrations (P< 0·05) inhibit the colonic and systemic inflammation.


* Both beans diet reduced mRNA expression of colonic inflammatory cytokines such as IL-6, IL-9, IFN-γ, and IL-17A) and increased anti-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-10.

* Furthermore, systemic inflammatory circulating cytokines (IL-1β, TNFα, IFNγ, and IL-17A, P< 0·05) in the acute and chronic inflammation and biomarkers associated with oxidative stress caused by the injection of dextran sodium sulfate (DSS) are also inhibited by the cooked black and navy beans.

* Unfortunately, both bean diets also are found to enhanc3 DSS-induced colonic damage, according to the increased histological injury score and apoptosis

Based on the findings, researchers suggested that bean-containing diets exerted both beneficial and adverse effects during experimental colitis by reducing inflammatory biomarkers both locally and systemically while aggravating colonic mucosal damage.


In other words, black and navy bean diet inhibit parameters involved in inflammation and oxidative stress and have a negative impact on colitis severity.

Taken altogether, navy beans may be considered a remedy for the prevention and treatment of diseases associated with oxidative stress, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Beet or Beet Root, the Function Food in Prevention and Treatment of Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer is a medical condition characterized by irregular cell growth and multiplied disorderly in the prostate tissues.

Beet, best known as the beetroot or garden beet, belonging to the amaranth family, is a perennial plant with leafy stems growing to 1–2 m tall.

Red beetroot (Beta vulgaris L.) may have a profound effect in reduced risk and treatment of prostate cancer, some studies suggested.

According to the Howard University, red beetroot (Beta vulgaris L.) extract (B), approved by Food and Drug Administration and European Union, in drinking water may be safe and used as cancer chemopreventive effect in humans.

Intake of the extract showed a significant effect in reduced synergistic antiproliferative activity against prostate (PC-3) tumor cells of human origin.

When combined anticancer drug doxorubicin (D), the combination acted synergistically in the expression of cytotoxicity against prostate cancer at a ratio of 1:5.

In a total of 24 patients (mean age 68+/-8 years) with hormone-resistant and metastatic prostate cancer treated with taxan chemotherapy, given twice 10 g daily for 1 month of natural table beet product come from commercial service, intake of beet juice showed a significant effect in control of the progression of prostate cancer in promoted life expectancy and reduced toxicity side effect induced by conventional chemo-drug.

The efficacy may be contributed by the mediated activities of phytochemicals in the juice in inhibition of inflammatory through the expression of the production of antioxidants.

The study also suggested that moderate and permanent consumption of table beet products may favorably affect the life expectancy of prostate cancer patients.

Furthermore, in the testing extract of red beetroot (Beta vulgaris L.), the FDA approved red food color E162, against various cancer cell lines, researchers at the Howard University found that the extract showed a significant cytotoxicity in decrease the growth rate of the PC-3 cells, although lesser in compared to doxorubicin, a chemo medicine( (8.6% vs. 100%, respectively, at 29 µg/ml concentration of each, three-day test period).

The study also suggested that betanin, the major betacyanin constituent found in beetroot, maybe phytochemicals responsible for the cytotoxicity.


These findings showed that beetroot may be used as a functional food to a reduced risk of early-onset and treatment of prostate cancer. And reduced adverse toxicity when used in combination with chemo drugs.

Black Bean, Reduced Risk and Treatment of Colitis


Black bean with abundant chemical constituents and fiber may be considered as functional foods for the prevention and treatment of colitis, a renowned institute indicated.

Colitis is a medical condition of inflammation of the inner lining of the colon.

Black bean, a small roughly ovoid legume with glossy black shells, genus Phaseolus, belongings to the family Fabaceae can be bought in most grocery stores all around the year in dried and canned forms. It is believed that black bean was first domesticated growth in South America.

According to the joint study led by the University of Guelph, in vivo, cooked whole-bean flours, with differing phenolic compound levels and profiles, showing a completed inhibition of colitis in a mouse model.


In C57BL/6 mice fed a 20 % navy bean or black bean flour-containing diet or an isoenergetic basal diet (BD) for 2 weeks before the induction of experimental colitis via 7 d dextran sodium sulphate (DSS, 2 % (w/v) in the drinking water) exposure, coincidentally, both groups exerted similarly a beneficial and adverse effects in induced locally and systemically while aggravating colonic mucosal damage with unknown identity and systemic inflammation.

In the bean treatment group, the efficacy in ameliorated colitis may be a result of the inhibition of pro-inflammatory expressions, such as colonic inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-9, IFN-γ, and IL-17A) and increased anti-inflammatory IL-10.



In mice with colon inflammation triggered by high-fat diet (HD)-induced obesity, injection of black bean expressed a significantly decreased the concentrations of lipid and various circulating proinflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-1β, and IL-6 in mice with HD-induced obesity, in attenuated change associated to colon inflammation.

Furthermore, mice treated with black bean also improved antioxidant status in reduced progression
of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the induction of oxidative stress.

Dr. Yook JS, the lead researchers said, "BAB ameliorates HD-induced disorders such as obesity and colitis by improving mucosal barrier protection and reducing endotoxemia, as well as by inactivating NF-κB to decrease the production of proinflammatory cytokines".

Taken together, the black bean may be considered as a functional diet in reduced risk of colitis in high-risk healthy subjects and treatment of patients with colitis with little or no adverse effects.

Healthy Food Navy Bean, a Natural Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a way substance produced by the liver or from food sources plays an important role to build strong cell membranes and produce steroid hormone and vitamin D and aiding the digestive tract in absorbing the nutrients for our body need.


Hyperlipidemia is also one of condition found in the cluster of metabolic syndrome.


In a healthy individual, excess cholesterol is returned to the liver after performing the aforementioned function by high-density lipoprotein or "good cholesterol".

However, a prolonged period of overexpression of abnormal blood cholesterol due to excessive consumption of fat or reduced levels of "good cholesterol" in the bloodstream can cause plaque building up on the arterial wall, leading to heart diseases and stroke.

Depending on the choice of diet, your risk of high blood cholesterol can be increased or decreased.


The healthy ratio of blood cholesterol is 4 (low-density lipoprotein) to 1 (high-density lipoprotein).

If your ratio is lower than 4, you are considered to have a healthy blood cholesterol ratio.


Hyperlipidemia is preventable. If you have high blood cholesterol, reducing bad fat intake accompanied by an increased intake of "good cholesterol" with moderate exercise can be helpful.


More precisely, by changing to a healthy diet and lifestyle with moderate exercise, you are at a lower risk of high blood cholesterol sometimes in the future (weeks or months, depending on the levels of blood cholesterol today).


People who follow the Western diet with a high in saturated and trans fat, red meat, processed food and low in fruits and vegetables and whole grains may have a substantially increased risk of abnormally high blood cholesterol.

According to the article "Western Diet and Heart Risk", the author wrote, "Western diets cause a third of heart attack deaths worldwide,” the Daily Mail reports. Western-style diets high in meat, fat, dairy and salt put people at higher risk of a heart attack. According to the newspaper, a study has found that poor diet is responsible for 30% of the risk of heart disease".

The small, white navy bean, also called pea bean or haricot, popular in both dry and green forms, is very popular in Britain and the US, native to Peru. It is now grown and consumed across the world, due to its numerous health benefits.

On finding a dietary source for the treatment of high blood cholesterol, researchers examined whether cooked navy bean powder (NBP) and/or heat-stabilized rice bran (RB) supplementation is tolerable, improves dietary fiber intake in children, and modulates lipid profiles.

The study included children aged 8 to 13 years at risk for CVD due to abnormal lipids. In other words, all participants were diagnosed with elevated cholesterol levels including total cholesterol ≥180 mg/dL and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) <60 mg/dL; low-density lipoprotein (LDL) ≥100 mg/dL and HDL <60 mg/dL; or non-HDL >100 mg/dL and HDL <60 mg/dL.


Participants received muffins or a smoothie daily that included 0 g NBP or RB (control), 17.5 g NBP, 15 g RB, or a combination 9 g NBP + 8 g RB. Fasting blood was collected at baseline and week 4.

Only 38 children completed the trial, including n = 9 control, n = 10 NBP, n = 9 RB, and n = 10 NBP + RB groups.

Additionally, participants in the intervention groups significantly increased intake of NBP and RB at week 4 (p≤.01), particularly increased fibers in NBP and NBP + RB groups from baseline to week 4.

Based on the tested assays, HDL-cholesterol was higher in NBP-group participants compared to control at week 4.

Although other lipid parameters also showed signs of decreasing, they are insignificantly due to the
shorter duration in the experiment (4 weeks).


In other words, higher daily intakes are needed for a longer duration to induce favorable changes across multiple serum lipid parameters.

Taken altogether, navy bean may be considered a remedy for the prevention and treatment of high blood cholesterol, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Cruciferous Vegetable- The Best Whole Food Medicine in Anti Inflammatory Effects

Intake of cruciferous vegetables may be inversely correlated with the circulating of proinflammatory levels of women.

In a total of 1,005 middle-aged Chinese women study, the consumption of cruciferous vegetables regularly is associated to lower circulating concentrations of proinflammatory cytokines.

Proinflammatory cytokines, also known as Interleukin (IL) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF), secreted by immune system to protect our body in inducing fever, inflammation, tissue destruction, etc.


Cruciferous vegetables are the group of vegetables belonging to the family Brassicaceae, including cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli, etc.

Further to the study, Sulforaphane (SFN) and Diallyl disulfide(DAFDs), the naturally occurring isothiocyanate found in cruciferous vegetables, in the highly metastatic B16F-10 melanoma cells exhibited the induction of apoptosis in the cancer cell line, through the involvement of proinflammatory cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), interleukin.


Dr. Pratheeshkumar P, the lead author of the study suggested, DADS induces caspase-dependent apoptosis through an induced cell death pathway in B16F-10 melanoma cells by activating...... and suppressing pro-inflammatory cytokines.



Other phytochemicals found the vegetables, such as 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM), a derivative of indole-3-carbinol, also expressed anti proinflammatory effect through interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6 and tumor necrosis factor.


In fact, chemical compounds found in the vegetable, not only inhibited the pro-inflammatory cytokines in the expression of chronic diseases and cancers but also involved in other aspects, such as environment airborne particulate pollutants, according to the East Campus - Laurentian University.

Asparagus, the Natural Whole Food with Antidiarrhoeal effects

Asparagus is a flowering plant belongs to species the genus Asparagus, native to the western coasts of northern Spain, north to Ireland, Great Britain, and northwest Germany, northern Africa, and western Asia, used from early times as a vegetable and medicine, because of its delicate flavor and diuretic properties.

Diarrhea is a condition of frequent discharge of feces in liquid form.

According to the K.P. College of Pharmacy, Asparagus racemosus wild root extract used traditional herbal medicine exerted the antidiarrhoeal potency against several experimental models of diarrhea in model animals, similar to those of conventional medicine such as loperamide.


This efficacy is attributed to the root extracts in the mediation of Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), a principal hormone in the expression of inflammatory diseases.
Dr. Venkatesan N., the lead researcher said, "The plant extracts showed significant (P < 0.05) inhibitory activity against castor oil-induced diarrhea and PGE2 induced enter polling in rats when tested at 200 mg/kg. Both extracts also showed significant (P < 0.001) reduction in gastrointestinal motility ".

In support of the above study, the test of animal model on Alpha-2 blocker (see alpha(2)-adrenoceptor) experimentally-induced diarrhea and ulceration, showed a positive effect of methanolic extract of Asparagus pubescens root in reducing significantly intestinal propulsive movement and intestinal fluid accumulation in (500-1500 mg/kg) in a dose-dependent manner.

In fact, the antidiarrhoeal effect of asparagus may be a result of modulating the expression of alpha(2)-adrenoceptor in regulated vascular smooth muscle contraction and vasoconstriction through Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) modification. But further studies may be necessary to validate this potency.

Beet or Beet Root, The Best Anti Inflammatory Functional Food

Beet may be one of function food, having an anti-inflammatory potential in reduced pain in damaged tissues or local infection.

Inflammation is a natural reaction of the immune system in protection of our body during tissues damage, injure and infection

Beet, best known as the beetroot or garden beet and belonging to the amaranth family, is a perennial plant with leafy stems growing to 1–2 m tall.

According to the Meerut Institute of Engineering & Technology, in carrageenan-induced paw edema method for acute inflammation and cotton pellet granuloma for chronic inflammation in rat model, injected aqueous extract of leaves of Beta vulgaris exhibited anti-inflammatory effects at dose level of 1000 mg/kg in comparison to those of indomethacin, a group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (10 mg/kg).

Also in carrageenan (100 µg/paw)-induced paw edema and neutrophil migration to the paw skin tissues. treatment with betalain (100 mg/kg, i.p.) significantly inhibited the expression of paw edema. caused by carrageenan, a common food additive and complete Freund's adjuvant (10 µl/paw) used in animal experiments to induce infection.

Neutrophils are white blood cells that form an important role in defense against infection and inflammation caused by injury and microorganisms invasion and neutrophil migration is a rapid movement of white blood cells to the location of infection or inflammation.


According to the study, the anti-inflammatory effect of aqueous extract of leaves of Beta vulgaris probably was attributed to phytochemicals found in the extract such as flavonoids, carbohydrates, pentose, amino acids, saponins, tannins and steroid in promoted and increased movement of plasma and leukocytes from the blood into the injured tissues to counteract the invasion of foreign substances and disease.and exhibited the release of histamine in the generation of mass and white blood cells and serotonin-induced platelets binding to a clot, then ameliorating inflammation through regulation of inflammatory mediators including leukotrienes and prostaglandins,

Please note that
1. Hormone prostaglandins play a key role in the generation of the inflammatory response and stimulation of constriction and clotting of platelets.

2. Leukotrienes (LTs) is a family of lipid and inflammatory mediators with a function in response to pathogenesis of inflammation

The study emphasized that in compared to a group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, an aqueous extract of leaves of Beta vulgaris at a specific dose exhibited a stronger and higher inhibition of acute inflammation induced by prostaglandin synthesis, including the inflammatory response to diverse stimuli in an induced temporary increase of physiological activity.

Further analysis also suggested that in chronic inflammatory diseases induced by cotton pellet granuloma, such as arthritis, aqueous extract of leaves of Beta vulgaris although less effective than the conventional drug of indomethacin, had a profound effect in reduced symptoms and prevented inflammatory process of cells at the site of inflammation by healing of the tissue through the initiated cells shift to induced apoptosis.

In other words, an aqueous extract of leaves of Beta vulgaris ameliorated risk of chronic inflammation by healing the affected tissue, thus preventing cell being damage caused by prolonged inflammation.


Furthermore, application of betalain (100 mg/kg), isolated from beetroot also suppressed free radical production and inflammatory activity through enhanced antioxidant activity and inhibited the overexpression of pro-inflammatory proteins such as

TNF-α, a tumor necrosis factor, a protein with function in regulated the production of inflammatory cytokines in the acute phase of invasion by foreign substances, and interleukin (IL)-1β has a duo function in the activated either pro-inflammatory cytokine or anti-inflammatory myokines, and promoted
IL-10 expression in the production of an anti-inflammatory cytokine

In healthy adult, with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), betanin, the major component of beet (Beta vulgaris var. rubra) also demonstrated a significant anti-inflammatory property in modulated reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and oxidative stress cause of DNA damage as well as increasing apoptosis in neutrophils by analyzing the blood samples of tested subjects.


Dr. Zielińska-Przyjemska M the lead author said, "Betanin treatment at the concentration of 100 μM for 24 h increased DNA damage assessed by comet assay in IBD patients' neutrophils. A similar effect although less pronounced was observed in Caco-2 cells(colon cancer cell line)".



The findings suggested that beet with plenty of phytochemicals may have a therapeutic potential to be utilized in the treatment of inflammation-associated diseases.

The Root Vegetable That Prevents Macular Degeneration (AMD), Biomedical Literature Suggest

Carrots may have a profound and positive effect in the prevention of macular degeneration, some scientists suggested.

Macular degeneration is a condition characterized by deterioration of the macula, the small central area of the retina of the eye that controls visual acuity.

Symptoms of early signs of AMD include central vision shadows or unusually fuzzy or distorted vision.

According to statistics, approximately 6 percent of Americans age 40 and older have some forms of macular degeneration.

There are 2 types of macular degeneration, the dry and wet form.

The dry form is one of the most common  macula degeneration accounted for over 85 to 90 % of the disease.


Dry macular degeneration also known as non-neovascular is an early stage of the disease caused by aging and thinning of macular tissues, leading to gradual central vision loss.


In compared to the dry form, wet macular degeneration (neovascular) is a severed and advanced stage of the disease caused by new blood vessels grow beneath the retina and leak blood and fluid causing permanent damage to light-sensitive retinal cells in the induction of blind spots in central vision.

Untreated or advanced stages of wet form AMD is also complicated by complete vision loss.

Dr. Ikram MK the lead author at the Singapore National Eye Centre study, said, "Persons with AMD are (regardless of treatment or not) at an increased risk of both cerebral infarction and intracerebral hemorrhage" and "These data (the study) provide further insight into common pathophysiological processes between AMD and stroke subtypes"(4).

Conventional medicine used for the treatment of AMD, such as Lucentis approved by FDA in 2006 can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.


Carrot, a root vegetable with orange color is a sub species of Daucus carota, belongings to the family Apiaceae, native to Asian and Europe.


In the investigated the effect of major bioactive phytochemicals lutein and zeaxanthin isolated from orange pigment vegetables, including carrot in eye health, researchers at the Guelph Food Research Centre, found that application of indicated compounds exert a significant protective effect of the yellow spot of the human retina which protects the macula from damage by blue light and improves visual acuity and scavenge harmful reactive oxygen species.



Long term exposure to the blue light may cause structural, thermal and photochemical damage to the retina, particularly, in an aging population.



Further analysis also suggested that the application of lutein and zeaxanthin increased antioxidants and stimulated natural antioxidants produced by the body tissue in inhibiting overexpression of free radicals and their chain of domino's effects caused by sunlight exposure in the induction of oxidative stress.


The restoration of balance of the ratio of reactive oxygen species and antioxidants not only prevented oxidative damage to the cells of retina but also reduced risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts, according to the research over the past decade in focused on the development of carotenoid-rich foods to boost their intake especially in the elderly population



Dr. Abdel-Aal el-SM, after taking into account other co and confounders said, "The review also lists major dietary sources of lutein and zeaxanthin and refers to newly developed foods, daily intake, bioavailability and physiological effects in relation to eye health".

This suggestion not only addressed a strong protective effect of bioactive compound carotenoids found abundantly in carrot in improved eye health but also recommended daily and regular intake of a moderate amount of carrot in the aging risk of macular degeneration.

Additionally, in the evaluation of the possibility of macular carotenoids, lutein (L), and zeaxanthin (Z) in ameliorated the retardation of age-related changes in the eye and prevention of the eye diseases such as cataract and macular degeneration, researchers at the University of Georgia suggested that intake of carotenoids rich food, such as carrot in the early life may be the best to protect against eye diseases due to aging.


The benefits of early carotenoids consumption in  protecting against retard age-related changes in the eye and the eye diseases were associated to influence of the development of the visual system through
* Altered input during a critical/sensitive period of visual development and/or

* Influenced maturation and/or

*Protected the retina during a period when it was particularly vulnerable.


Interestingly, in the differentiation of lutein and zeaxanthin accumulated throughout the tissues of the eye, especially in the central retina, researchers once again strongly found that circulated pigments' antioxidants serve a variety of roles in the specialized human vision, including all aspects of visual performance.

Taken together, Carrot with high amount of carotenoids ( lutein (L), and zeaxanthin) may be considered as functional food in prevention of eye diseases, particularly in older adult.


People with higher risk of eye diseases may want to add a portion of carrot into their daily diet for preventive measure. And intake of carrot extracts should be taken as acute liver toxicity has been reported in numbers of supplement.

Celery, the Natural Whole Food in Ameliorated Pain of Dysmenorrhea



Celery is a species of Apium graveolens, belonging to the family Apiaceae, cultivated all around the globe as a vegetable. Celery can grow to 1/2 m tall with stalks (leaf on the top) arranging in a conical shape joined at a common base.

According to a recent study by the renowned institution, herbal drug group given 500 mg of highly purified saffron, celery seed, and anise (SCA) ameliorated severity and duration of menstrual pain within 2 to 3 months.



In the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot trial among 180 female students at Isfahan University dormitory aged 18 to 27 who suffered from primary dysmenorrhea, the combination decode expressed significant reductions in pain scores and pain duration scores in the groups that took SCA (P < . 001), in comparison to group who took mefenamic acid, used to treat mild to moderate pain.


Dr. Nahid K, the researcher said, "The decrease in pain score was reflected by a significant reduction in other drug use among the treatment groups compared with the women in the placebo group" and "The magnitude of the reduction was significantly greater in the SCA group than in the mefenamic acid and placebo groups".


Usr-i-tamth in Unani (Greco-Arabic) decode, included celery, used in traditional medicine in treating the pain associated with menstruation.


In the review of the Cochrane database, PubMed/Google Scholar, and other websites for articles on complementary and alternative medicine, the herbal formula exerted analgesic effect in attenuated abnormal temperament, menstrual irregularities/uterine diseases, particularly in the management of menstrual pain/dysmenorrhoea.


Although some herbal medicine and formula may have a powerful effect on ameliorated painful menstruation, further data collection is necessary to prevent adverse drug reactions among women using herbal medicines for reproductive health.

Fermented Cucumber, the Natural Probiotics With No Side Effects

Probiotics are good bacteria that not only balance the ratio of gut microbiota in the intestine but also react with other body systems to provide optimal health in the human.

Most common types of probiotics are lactobacilli (like Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus GG), bifidobacteria (like Bifidobacterium bifidus) and some yeasts (like Saccharomyces boulardii).

Although all probiotics shared the same functions to improve the gastrointestinal microbiome community, different probiotics have different effects.

Most common probiotic foods are

* Yogurt, a dairy product made by fermenting milk is one of the best sources of probiotics. Epidemiologically, yogurt not only provides protein and calcium for the body but also enhances healthy gut bacteria.

Additionally, the fermented products also protect against osteoporosis, irritable bowel disease, and aids digestion.

* Kefir.
Kefir is a fermented probiotic milk drink made from kefir grains Kefir or kephir similar to those of thin yogurt.

According to the article by By Megan Ware RDN LD, Kefir as a probiotic has been found to process a number of health benefits, including lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose, improved lactose tolerance, and stomach health, weight control and promoted wound healing.

More precisely,
* In immunity, probiotics stimulate the immune function against inflammatory immune disorders.

* In the digestive system, probiotics protect the gut against gastrointestinal diseases and non-gastrointestinal diseases.caused by overexpression of bad bacteria.

* In metabolism, probiotics influence the nutrient extraction from the diet, thus reducing the risk of obesity and obese complication.

* Neurologically, probiotics control brain insulin signaling and metabolite levels that play a critical role in neurobehaviors

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.

With an aim to find a natural compound with probiotic potential, researchers investigated 3 bacterial strains designated as 437F, 1630F and 1020G were isolated from a traditional pickle.

According to the tested results, all strains showed high acid and bile tolerance and exhibited antagonistic activity against various pathogens.

The straits also demonstrated the antioxidant activity, auto- and co-aggregation ability on the surface hydrophobicity and attachment capacity in the range of other well-known probiotic strains without inducing toxicity.

Dr.Talebi S, the lead scientist wrote at the end of the experiment, "With respect to their characteristics and safety aspect, these Bacillus species may have potential to consider as probiotics for animal and/or human applications".

Additional differentiation of the effect of fermented cucumber activity as probiotics, researchers examined a total of 38 strains that were isolated from the pickled samples.

According to the tested assays, all strain showed a significant resistance after incubation at pH 2.5 did not change markedly, above 90 % (10(9) CFU/mL) survival rate was observed.

More precisely, the strains also exhibited a high survival rate at pH 3.5 (>90 %), compared to all dead at pH 1.5 except four strains that could survive 90 min.

In bile salt solution incubation, at 0.2 %, the survival rates were 81-94 % after 24 h, compared to 59-94 % in 2 and 4 %.


Similar to the aforementioned study, the tested strains also exerted the auto- and co-aggregation ability on the surface hydrophobicity and attachment capacity.

Only four of tested strains were excluded due to safety precautions, according to antibiotic resistance patterns and certain metabolic activities.

In other words, most tested strains isolated from the fermented cucumber process the ability to improve the ratio of microbiota composition in the gut.

Taken altogether, fermented cucumber may be used as probiotics to improve the human digestive health, 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.
