Herbal Turmeric, A Natural And Potential Treatment of Chagas Heart Disease

By Kyle J. Norton

Chagas disease (CD) is a medical condition caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi.

According to the statistics, approximately 6 million people worldwide are living Chagas disease. The  majority of patients reside in Mexico, Central America, and South America, 

Chagas heart disease can be classified into
* Acute Chagas heart disease is characterized by the inflammation of the heart,  gastrointestinal tract (mainly esophagus and colon), meninges, and central and peripheral nervous tissues. Untreated symptomatic patients in this phase may face a roughly 1% chance of death in the acute period, usually the result of severe myocarditis or meningoencephalitis

*  The indeterminate form of Chagas heart disease is characterized by small foci of mild chronic myocarditis, with interstitial edema, early fibrosis, and infiltration by lymphocytes, macrophages, and plasma cells. Most patients with the indeterminate form will progress to the chronic form of Chagas heart disease such as dilated cardiomyopathy, at a rate of 1.85% to 7% annually.

* The chronic form of Chagas heart disease is characterized by cardiomegaly and increased cardiac mass, thinning of the ventricular walls, and aneurysmal lesions in various regions of the LV and right ventricle (RV).

Dr. Edimar Alcides Bocchi, the lead scientist in the treatment of Chagas heart disease wrote, "Pharmacological treatment and antiarrhythmic therapy for ChHD is mostly based on results for other etiologies. Heart transplantation is an established, valuable therapeutic option in refractory ChHD".

And, "Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators are indicated for the prevention of secondary sudden cardiac death. Specific etiological treatments should be revisited and reserved for select patients. Understanding and management of ChHD need improvement, including the development of randomized trials".

Turmeric is a perennial plant in the genus Curcuma, belongings to the family Zingiberaceae, native to tropical South Asia.

The herb has been used in traditional medicine as anti-oxidant, hypoglycemic, colorant, antiseptic, wound healing agent, and for the treatment of flatulence, bloating, and appetite loss, ulcers, eczema, inflammations, etc.

With an aim to find a potential compound for the treatment of Chagas heart disease, caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi., researchers examined the anti-inflammatory and cardioprotective properties of curcumin (Cur).

The study included oral therapy with Cur on T. cruzi-mediated cardio-vasculopathy in acutely infected mice and in vitro, the response of parasite-infected human microvascular endothelial cells treated with this phytochemical.

According to the tested assays, oral Cur therapy showed a reduced inflammatory cell infiltration of myocardial arteries without lowering parasite levels in the tested infected mice.

Furthermore, mice treated with Cur showed significantly decreased vessel inflammation scores (p < 0.001), vascular permeabilities compared to mice treated with the phosphate-buffered saline-receiving group.

Moreover, levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines and ET-1 secretion involved in vascular constriction was also inhibited by the treatment of Cur.

Additionally, proteins and signaling pathways that promote the generation of inflammatory agents also inhibited by the injection of Cur.

In other words, curcumin (Cur) exerted the anti-inflammatory and cardioprotective properties against parasite-induced the onset of Chagas heart disease.

Based on the findings researchers wrote, "These findings identify new perspectives for exploring the potential of Cur-based interventions to ameliorate Chagas heart disease".


Taken altogether, turmeric processed abundantly bioactive compound curcumin may be considered supplements for the prevention and treatment of Chagas heart disease, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

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

Phytochemical Lycopene Kills Head and Neck Cancer Cells, According to Study

By Kyle J. Norton

Cancer is a group of disease caused by cell growth irregularly in the affected tissue caused by DNA alternation.

Head and neck cancer is a group of cancers originated from the mouth, nose, throat, larynx, sinuses, or salivary glands. 

According to the statistics provided by the Canadian Cancer Society, approximately 4,300 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer of the head and neck every year. Head and neck cancer also cause the death of nearly 1,610 of Canadian.

The overall survival rate of 5 years after diagnosis is 62% tobacco use, alcohol consumption and viral infection including human papillomavirus (HPV) infection (for oropharyngeal cancer), and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection (for nasopharyngeal cancer).

Some researchers suggested that diet pattern may have a strong impact on the onset of the disease.

Dr. Shu-Chun Chuang, the lead scientist wrote, "A dietary pattern score combining high fruit and vegetable intake and low red meat intake, was created. Odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for the dietary items on the risk of HNC were estimated with a two-stage random effects logistic regression model".

And, "Higher dietary pattern scores, reflecting high fruit/vegetable and low red meat intake, were associated with reduced HNC risk (per score increment OR=0.90, 95% CI=0.84–0.97)".

In other words, if you are Western diet follower, you risk of head and neck cancer increased substantially compared to those who follow a traditional diet.

Most common symptoms of head and neck cancer are totally depending on the location of cancer including a lump or sore that does not heal, a sore throat that does not go away, trouble swallowing, or a change in the voice.

Lycopene is a phytochemical in the class of carotenoid, a natural pigment with no vitamin A activity found abundantly in tomatoes and other red fruits and vegetables, such as red carrots, watermelons, and papayas,

Tomatoes provide about 80% of the lycopene in the world diet. In plants, lycopene protects the host against excessive photodamage and perform various functions in photosynthesis.

In the urgency to find a potential compound for the treatment of head and neck cancer, researchers examined the lycopene overload and cytotoxic effects on HNSCC cells.

According to the cell analysis, lycopene at a dose of >10 µM for >24 h inhibited the growth of FaDu and Cal27 cells in a time‑ and dose‑dependent manner.

Furthermore, injection of lycopene not only provided the clearest increase in growth inhibition by cell apoptosis but also limited the cancer cell invasive activity at a dose of 25 µM.

More precisely, lycopene killed cancer cell by exhibiting the protein associated with cell death programming and apoptosis.

Dr. Ye M, the lead scientist after taking other factors into account wrote, " lycopene induced the upregulation of the pro‑apoptotic protein, B‑cell lymphoma‑associated X protein".


Taken altogether, lycopene may be considered supplements for the prevention and treatment of head and neck cancer, pending on the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

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

Phytochemical Alliin, A Natural and Potential Treatment of Colo-rectal Cancer

By Kyle J. Norton

Colorectal cancer is a medical condition caused by irregular cell growth that begins at the inner lining of the colon or rectum.

Most cases of colorectal cancers are diagnosed at the later stage due to the tendency of the slow-growing in nature. According to the statistics, only about 39% of patients are diagnosed at an early stage.

Some patients with polyps may not experience colon cancer 20 years later as the gradually enlarging polyps eventually penetrate the bowel wall.

At the advanced stage, primary colon cancer is found to induce secondary metastasis in the liver, lungs, brain, peritoneum through blood and fluid circulation.

According to the statistics provided by the American Cancer Society, in 2019, approximately,
101,420 new cases of colon cancer and 44,180 new cases of rectal cancer will be diagnosed in the US. Colorectal cancer also will cause the death of 51,020 Americans.

The lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer is1 in 22 (4.49%) for men compared to 1 in 24 (4.15%) for women. 

The 5-year survival rate of colorectal cancer diagnosed at the localized stage is 90%. However, if cancer has spread to surrounding tissues or organ or the regional lymph nodes, the 5-year survival rate is 71%.

Out of many factors associated with colorectal cancer risk, some researchers suggested that the prevalence of obesity associated with the promotion of high-fat diet may be the major culprit that causes the rise of colon cancer in the US.

Dr. O'Neill AM, the lead scientist said, "The increasing worldwide incidence of colon cancer has been linked to the spread of the Western lifestyle and in particular consumption of a high-fat Western diet. In this study, our objectives were to establish mouse models to examine the effects of high-fat Western diet-induced obesity on the growth of human colon cancer tumor xenografts, and to examine potential mechanisms driving obesity-linked human colon cancer tumor growth".
And, "human colon cancer growth is accelerated in animals that are obese and insulin resistant due to the consumption of an HFWD".

Alliin (S-allyl-L-cysteine-S-oxide) is a phytochemical compound sulfoxide,. a derivative of the amino acid cysteine, belongings to the class of sulfur compounds, found abundantly in fresh garlic and onion.

In the urgency to find a natural compound for the treatment of colorectal cancer, researchers examined the anti-cancer activity on s-allyl-l-cysteine-sulfoxide (SACS)/alliin.

According to the tested assays, SACS showed higher affinity towards epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR).

In other words, SACS inhibited the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). associated with facilitating cancer cell growth and proliferation.

In order to reveal more information about alliin colonic protective effects, researchers compared protective efficiency of three garlic powders with increased levels of alliin, obtained from bulbs grown in soils with different levels of sulfur fertilization, against DNA damage.

According to the comet assay, garlic powders were administered to rats for 2 weeks (5% of the diet), DNA damage induced by 1,2-dimethylhydrazine in the colon were also decreased strongly by the three garlic powders.

Interestingly, these decreases were not correlated to the allicin content of the garlic powders.

These results suggested that all compound in the garlic including alliin worked synergistically to promote the efficacy of the whole food.

Sadly, feeding garlic powders protected the colon cell against DNA damage but did not modify the genotoxic activity of the direct-acting carcinogen methylnitrosourea in the colon.

Taken altogether, alliin may be considered supplements for the prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer with no side effect, responding to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

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

Herbal Bilberry, Protect the Brain Cell Against Memory Impairment

By Kyle J. Norton


Memory impairment is a condition associated with a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. Over time, the condition can worsen enough to affect the quality of life and daily activity.

Memory loss can be temporarily forgotten, such as forgetting to pay a monthly bill and permanent such as no longer know your name. Many factors can cause memory change. However, memory impairment in the elderly in most cases is associated with a gradual loss and death of neurons such as Alzheimer's disease.

Some memory change can be resolved on their own or cured by medical treatment. Others due to the loss of neuron and quantity capacity cannot be revered such as dementia.

According to statistics, dementia affects 47.5 million people worldwide. Every year over 7.7 million new cases are diagnosed. The disease is a leading cause of dependency and mental impairment among the elderly population.

The aim of the treatment of irreversible memory impairment is to improve the quality of life by delaying the progression of underlying diseases such as AD and PD.

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.

With an aim to find a potential compound for the treatment of memory deficits, with no side effects compared to those of conventional medicine, researchers examined the effects of anthocyanin pigments, a group of flavonoids, and a widespread class of phenolic compounds found abundantly in bilberry.

The study included the examination of elevated plus-maze and radial maze tasks cognitive performance fed approximately 3.2 mg kg(-1)day (oral) the anthocyanins. The lyophilized berries were administered for 30 days before the first training.

According to the step-down inhibitory avoidance, open field analysis, lyophilized berries significantly enhanced short-term memory, but not long-term memory and induced an increase in the number of crossings in the first exposure to the open field.

Interestingly, prolonged treatment with lyophilized berries did not have any significant effects in the elevated plus-maze task but improved working memory in the radial maze, with significant differences observed during sessions 1-2 and 4, but did not alter reference memory in this task.

Researchers after taking into account co and confounders wrote in the final report, "These results suggest that lyophilized berries may be beneficial in the prevention of memory deficits, one of the symptoms related to AD, and corroborate previous findings showing that flavonoids present effects in several learning paradigms".

In other words, the efficacy of bilberry protects the memory function against the onset of deficits was attributed by the bioactive compound anthocyanin.

Taken altogether, bilberry processed abundantly bioactive compound anthocyanoside may be considered a functioning remedy for the prevention and treatment symptom of memory deficits in patients with AD, pending to the validation of larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Bromelain Inhibits the Parameters Associated with The Onset of Alzheimer's disease

By Kyle J. Norton


 Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease correlated with major reductions of neurons to the respective target areas, named after German physician Alois Alzheimer.

Alzheimer's destroys brain cells, causing cognitive modalities severe enough to affect language communication, memory, lifelong hobbies or social life. Alzheimer's gets worse over time, and it is fatal.

According to statistic, over 25 million people in the world today are affected by dementia and most are suffering from Alzheimer's disease. In Canada, approximately, over half a million Canadians living with dementia accompanied by the 25,000 new cases diagnosed every year.

Believe or not, in 2016, dementia had cost Canada over $10 billion, including the health-care system and out-of-pocket caregiver costs.

Epidemiologically, cigarette smoking, midlife high blood pressure and obesity, diabetes, and cerebrovascular lesions and psychosocial factors (eg, high education, active social engagement, physical exercise, and mentally stimulating activity) are associated with prevalent risk of AD  developing.

Some researchers in the evaluated the increased AD in the older adults in the Western world over the past few decades may be correlated to the promotion of the high-fat diet.

Dr. Peter Thériault, the lead researcher wrote, "WD promotes systemic inflammation by increasing the levels of blood-circulating monocytes and monocyte chemotactic protein-1 production, which is accompanied by an augmentation of oxidized-low density lipoprotein levels in blood circulation".

And, "At the blood-brain barrier (BBB), WD potentiates the age-induced increase of Aβ 1-40 accumulation and exacerbates the oxidative stress, specifically in cerebral microvasculature. These effects were accompanied by the dysfunction of pericytes, thus altering BBB functionality without compromising its integrity".

In other words, if you are high-diet follow, you are at high risk of AD developing.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme found in pineapples (Ananas comosus) has been used in traditional medicine as an inflammatory agent and to treat pains, strains, and muscle aches and pains and ease back pain and chronic joint pain, skin diseases, etc.

On finding a potential compound for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, researchers investigated the ability of bromelain, a plant cysteine protease derived from pineapple stems interaction with synthetic Aβ42 monomers and oligomers.

According to the tested assays, bromelain protected the neuron successfully by degrading Aβ42 monomers and low and high molecular weight oligomers.

Examined the effects of bromelain preparations of 3 and 6 mU added to the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), the levels of Aβ42 monomers and oligomers were significantly reduced, compared to that od the same standard Aβ42 preparations incubated in CSF without bromelain

Furthermore, the concentration of bromelain incubations with 0.1, 0.5, and 1 mU/ml were not toxic to the central nervous system.

Based on the findings, researchers said, "these results represent an important insight into the action of bromelain on Aβ42 oligomers, suggesting its potential use in the therapy of AD".

In order to know more information about bromelain anti-Alzheimer's disease activity, researchers examined a beta-degrading activity of diverse alpha 2-macroglobulin (alpha 2-M)-proteinase including trypsin, alpha-chymotrypsin, and bromelain (125)I-A beta 1--42.

The complex showed a strong degradation of (125)I-A beta 1--42.

In Ex vivo, oral administration of high doses of proteinases displayed an enhanced degradation of (125)I-A beta 1--42 in the blood of volunteers.

In other words, the complexes exhibited a significant A beta catabolism, thus reducing the risk of developing AD by preventing A beta accumulation in brain and vasculature.

Taken altogether, bromelain used alone or combined with other herbal medicines may be considered supplements for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

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

Phytochemical 3,3'-Diindolylmethane Kills Triple Negative Breast Cancer Cells in Vivo and Vitro

By Kyle J. Norton


Unlike general breast cancer which processes either receptors for estrogen or progesterone and/or receptors with a protein called HER2, triple-negative breast cancer is a form of breast cancer that does not share the aforementioned characteristics.

In other words, triple-negative breast cancer does not have receptors of estrogen or progesterone or genetic preposition.

More importantly, triple negative breast cancer was found to infect women under the age of 40 and women of African or Asian ancestry in the US, compared to breast cancer in the White.

Particularly, according to the epidemiological study, younger women and in women of African ancestry are susceptible to a higher risk of basal-like triple negative breast cancers.

Compared to the malignant nature, triple-negative and basal-like breast cancers are highly invasive which can grow and spread quickly to other tissues and organs through lymph and blood.

Also compared to other breast cancer, with decreased risk after 5 years, triple-negative breast cancers have a substantial higher recurrent rate within 5 years after treatment.

Triple negative breast cancer shares the symptoms similar to those of breast cancer and risk factor except in the form of the genetic preposition.

According to Dr. Shimelis H, the lead scientist in the joint study led by the Mayo Clinic, said, "Pathogenic variants in BRIP1, RAD51C, and TP53 were associated with moderate risk (odds ratio > 2) of TNBC. Similar trends were observed for the African American population. Pathogenic variants in these TNBC genes were detected in 12.0% (3.7% non-BRCA1/2) of all participants".

And, "Multigene hereditary cancer panel testing can identify women with an elevated risk of TNBC due to mutations in BARD1, BRCA1, BRCA2, PALB2, and RAD51D". 

In other words, if you carry the mutated genes BARD1, BRCA1, BRCA2, PALB2, and RAD51D, you are at a higher risk of triple negative breast cancer.

In seeking a potential compound for the treatment of breast cancer, researchers reexamined the promising anticancer effects of novel C-substituted diindolylmethane (DIM) derivatives DIM-10 and DIM-14 in aggressive triple negative breast cancer (TNBC, MDA-MB-231) models.

In vitro studies, novel C-substituted diindolylmethane (DIM) derivatives DIM-10 and DIM-14 demonstrated strong anticancer effects.

NLC formulations. including DIM-10 and DIM-14 extended significant increase in oral bioavailability compared to poor permeability and poor oral bioavailability of DIM-10 and DIM-14 used alone in pharmacokinetic studies.

Futhermore, compared to DIM-10, DIM-10 used alone, the NLC formulation showed an increase in Cmax and AUC values by 4.73 and 11.19-folds.

Similar increased anti-aggressive triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) efficacy was also found in the DIM-14 NLC formulations.

In dogs, the DIM-10 NLC formulations showed an increase of 2.65 and 2.94-fold in Cmax and AUC, against triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) respectively.

Moreover, DIM-10 or DIM-14 NLC formulations demonstrated significant a reduction in tumor volumes TNBC models and treated animals.

Dr. Godugu C, the lead scientist after taking into account co and confounders wrote, "NLC formulation of both DIM-10 and 14 is effective in TNBC models".

Taken altogether, 3,3'-Diindolylmethane derived from the digestion of indole-3-carbinol may be considered a supplement for the prevention and treatment of triple negative breast cancer, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Intake of 3,3'-diindolylmethane in form of supplement should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.

Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease caused by the inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract.

The exact cause of Crohn's disease is not identified. However, some researchers suggested that people with the compromised immune system and genetic preposition are prone to the disease onset compared to people who do not

Most common symptoms of Crohn's disease are abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition.

If you are experiencing symptoms of severe abdominal pain accompanied by blood in the stool and persistent diarrhea, please check with your doctor right the way.

Risk factors of Crohn's disease include aging, family and person history, ethnicity, smoking and long-term use of Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
.
Out of many risk factors that cause the onset of the condition, some researchers suggested that your risk of Crohn's disease is depending on where you live.

Dr. Pascal Michel wrote, "Crohn's disease (CD) is clinically expressed as a chronic affection of the gastrointestinal tract currently known to have a multifactorial etiology involving a complex pathophysiological host response modulated by genetic susceptibilities, demographic determinants, and environmental factors. With more than 20 cases per 100,000 person-years, the province of Quebec, Canada is among regions of the world with the highest reported occurrence of CD in relation to other places where comparable estimates are available".

And, "These findings suggest that known populational and regional factors derived through census information only explain a limited fraction of the geographical variation of CD incidence and lead to speculate that the effects of these factors may be incompletely captured (imperfect construction of proxy variables) or that other important factors remain unmeasured".



Turmeric is a perennial plant in the genus Curcuma, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to tropical South Asia.

The herb has been used in traditional medicine as anti-oxidant, hypoglycemic, colorant, antiseptic, wound healing agent, and to treat flatulence, bloating, and appetite loss, ulcers, eczema, inflammations, etc.

On finding a natural ingredient for the treatment of Crohn's disease (CD), researchers at the Grand Valley State University compared the effects of Remicade to curcumin for the treatment of the condition.

The review study includes the search in electronic databases (ProQuest Medical Library, CINAHL Complete, and PUBMED) to locate and identify articles to meet a predetermined set of inclusion criteria, including articles published after 2007 in human participants 18 years or older.

Compared to Remicade in reducing TNF-a, the protein associated with inflammation in adults with CD, curcumin induced a 55 points mean reduction in the Crohn's Disease Activity Index, reduced the expression of IL-1 and levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), associated with elevated levels of proinflammatory cytokines in the colon, particularly in the reduced levels of TNF-a and PPMTase involved in the improvement of colorectal cancer outcomes.

Based on the findings, researchers said, "...Preliminary data would suggest using both would reduce LOR. Curcumin, even by itself, was found to be a cheap and safe way to reduce CD symptoms and inflammatory markers"

Furthermore, according to the study conducted by the Medical School of Marília in the search for articles associating curcuminoids and CD and UC on the database of MEDLINE-PubMed, curcumin demonstrated an intestinal protective effect on reducing oxidative stress and inhibiting the migration of neutrophils and inducible nitric oxide synthase in the intestine.

Moreover, curcumin also improved micro and macroscopic lesions in the gut, prevented apoptosis of intestinal cells and induced the restoration of immune reaction. 

 Dr. Cunha Neto F, after taking into account of co and confounders wrote, "The use of curcumin is cheap, efficient and associated with no side effects, and may become an alternative to the IBD treatment".

Taken altogether, turmeric processed a high amount of bioactive compound curcumin may be considered supplements for the prevention and treatment of Crohn's disease (CD), pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

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