Particled Mica, STB-HO has chemopreventive potential via G1 arrest, and inhibition of proliferation and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 in HCT colorectal cancer cells

Posted July 25, 2013

Though Mica, a thin and sheet like mineral, has been used as a mineral medicine for treatment of bleeding, dysentery and inflammation in traditional medicine including Ayurveda, the biological evidences of Mica were not clearly elucidated so far. Thus, in the present study, the antitumor mechanism of particled Mica (STB-HO) was examined in colorectal cancers.

Thiamine May Improve Endothelial Function

Posted October 21, 2012

An observational study involving 30 adult subjects who were either healthy, with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), or with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), found that thiamine may increase endothelium dependent vasodilatation (EDV).

Mn bioavailability by polarized Caco-2 cells: comparison between Mn gluconate and Mn oxyprolinate

Posted April 30, 2012

Background Micronutrient inadequate intake is responsible of pathological deficiencies and there is a need of assessing the effectiveness of metal supplementation, frequently proposed to rebalance poor diets. Manganese (Mn) is present in many enzymatic intracellular systems crucial for the regulation of cell metabolism, and is contained in commercially available metal supplements.

More Evidence that Caffeine Lowers Risk of Skin Cancer

Posted April 30, 2012

A new Rutgers study strengthens the theory that caffeine guards against certain skin cancers at the molecular level by inhibiting a protein enzyme in the skin, known as ATR. Scientists believe that based on what they have learned studying mice, caffeine applied directly to the skin might help prevent damaging UV light from causing skin cancer.

SerratioPeptidase is a potent anti-inflammatory enzyme

Posted April 30, 2012

Proteolytic enzymes are specific enzymes that metabolize protein. These enzymes are naturally produced by the human body and other living organisms and help carry out essential functions. Supplementing with these enzymes has shown to have a favorable anti-inflammatory effect on the tissues of the body. A unique enzyme named serratiopeptidase is now emerging as one of the most potent anti-inflammatory supplements.

Enzyme Boosts Metabolism, Prevents Weight Gain in Mice

Posted April 30, 2012

Male and female mice engineered to express the inflammatory enzyme IKKbeta in their fat tissue ate more but gained less weight. They burned sugar and fat more effectively than mice who were left unaltered. The research may shed light on how obesity and inflammation affect insulin resistance and sensitivity.

Breakthrough in Regulating Fat Metabolism

Posted April 30, 2012

Scientists at Warwick Medical School have made an important discovery about the mechanism controlling the body’s ‘fat switch’, shedding new light on our understanding of how proteins regulate appetite control and insulin secretion.

Study shows how nutrient levels affect enzyme associated with aging process

Posted April 30, 2012

Restricting calorie intake extends life span in many species, and a new study at the School of Medicine helps illuminate how: Low-nutrient conditions activate an enzyme that helps cells complete their normal division process.
