Green tea is found to consist an anti obesity function, a recent study by popular institute suggested.

Green tea, considered as a functional food, linking  numbers of health benefit has been reported by several renowned research and studies. However, as yin in nature herbal medicine or food, long term injection of large amounts may obstruct the balance of yin-yang, induced "yin excessive syndrome" or "yang vacuity syndrome" including weaken immunity and painful case of GERD,... according to traditional Chinese medicine's Yin-Yang theory. But adding a slice ginger will do the trick.

Obesity is a medical condition of excess body fat accumulated overtime. A person is considered an obese if excess body weight relatively to the height is over 30 in BMI index.

According to the University of the Punjab, Epigallocatechin gallate, a polyphenol found in tea plants exhibited anti obesity effect through modulation of thePPAR[gamma] pathway in metabolism involved fat cells/adipose tissues.

In animal study, the chemical constituent stopped the adipogenic cell differentiation through different proteins and transcription factors in expression of adipocyte formation which is considered as fat cell development in contribution to obesity.

Dr. Javaid MS, the lead author in the study said, "Docking analysis of PPAR gamma and epigallocatechin gallate demonstrated that epigallocatechin gallate binds with PPAR gamma at its active site and blocks its activity".

Also, in animal induced by high fat diet, green tea Epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG),exerted anti obesity effects through reduced plasma glucose and alleviate complications of diabetes by attenuating advanced glycation end products (AGEs) formation involved proteins or lipids expression.

Dietary EGCG tested in C57BL/6 mice induced by high-fat diet with or without ECGC for 17 weeks and compared to a control group placed on low-fat diet for the same period, also showed a significanty reduced weight gain, plasma glucose, insulin level, liver and kidney weight, which can be seen in obesity in compared control mice.

Importantly, green tea Epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG fed mice novally decreased the levels of AGEs(advanced glycation end product) in both plasma and liver while inhibiting the receptor for AGE (RAGE) expression of activating Nrf2, antioxidant response and enhanced anti oxidative stress ratio of GSH/GSSG.

Other searchers opinionated the effect of green tea in reduced fat/adipose tissues accumulation in obese subject is a result of the pro-oxidant action of EGCG, in de activated cellular production of reactive oxygen species, through indication of adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase in suppressed gene and protein expression of enzymes and transcription factors involved in adipogenesis and lipogenesis(fat and adiposed metabolism).

Taking together, green tea with all the phytochemicals may be used as anti obesity functional food to help control hyperglycemia, reduce weight, and alleviate diabetes complications.

Herbal medicine can only ease symptoms of the diseases gradually, depending to stage of the treatment which directly address to the causes.

Chaste tree berry is found to process an ability in reduced of MALE osteopenia turnover, the early sign of osteoporosis, a renowned institution study reported.

Chaste tree berry is a species of Vitex agnus-castus, genus Vitex, belonging to the family Lamiaceae, native to the Mediterranean region, used in herbal medicine for thousands of year as anaphrodisiac herb and considered as Queen herb in treating menstrual problems and discomforts.

Osteoporosis is a condition of thinning of bone and bone tissues as a result of the loss of bone density over a long period of times.

In a total of 60, 3-month-old male rats orchidectomized and divided into five groups with each group either received soy-free food (C), estradiol (E), testosterone (T) or Vitex agnus castus in different concentrations (AC high/AC low) for 12 weeks, rats treated with Vitex agnus castus at highest dose displayed a recover of 88.4% of trabecular bone area, 80.7% of trabecular number and 66.9% of the number of trabecular nodes compared with other administrations.

The study also found out that Vitex agnus castus is more protective in treating osteoprorsis in male population in compared female counter part.

Dr. Sehmisch S, the lead author said, " Vitex agnus castus demonstrated osteoprotective effects in males. It preserves the cortical as well as the trabecular bone and might be a safe alternative for HRT".

Further more, In the study to compare  group of animals (n = 8) treated subcutaneously (s.c.) with 60 mg/kg of Vac essential oil once a day for 3 weeks and control animals (n = 8) received sterile olive oil s.c. by the same schedule, Vitex agnus-castus L. (Vac) essential oil treated group also exerted a significant bone metabolism in 16-month-old male Wistar rats.

The osteoporosis protection can be observed through the lower of Serum osteocalcin (OC) and calcium (Ca2+) in Vitex agnus-castus L. (Vac) essential oil and decreased of bone turnover  treated group in compared control in middle-aged male rats..

Taking together, Chaste tree berry showed a strong support in reduced early onset of osteoporosis of male gander through improved bone metabolism and calcium status, but further large size and multi centers studies are necessary to validate this potency.

In 2010, over 250,000 new cases of breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. alone and risk of getting invasive breast cancer during life time of a women is 1/8.

According to the joint study lead by Jackson State University, breast cancer patients showed a improvement of significant efficacy in altering various outcomes related to breast cancer, after attending in yoga therapy.

In the review of the data bases of 23 literature produced by in USA (n = 9), followed by Germany (n = 3), India (n = 3) and Turkey (n = 2). One study each was from Australia, Canada, Iran, Taiwan, Poland, and UK. met the inclusion criteria, yoga interventions scored a remarkable change in attituded outcomes in patients of breast cancer.

Dr. Sharma M, the lead author said, (due to its effectiveness in treating breast cancer), yoga as an integrative form of therapy for breast cancer is a promising approach".

In breast cancer-related chronic condition of lymphoedema (BCRL), yoga practice promoted the management and prevent the condition worsening and to reduce the threat of infection as well as reducing both the physical and psychosocial effects of lymphoedema, after an 8-week intervention (n=28) and 6-months after a 4-week intervention (n=18).

Promisingly, yoga interventions compromised breathing, physical postures, meditation and relaxation practices based on Satyananda Yoga, showed a good result in modification of lymphatic drainage and increased biopsychosocial acticiites.

Furthermore, with the important guidelines adapted to other yoga styles. yoga therapy may provide a basis for people with secondary lymphoedema in other areas of their body in breast cancer treatment.

Other study also indicated that yoga lesson not only reduced physical and psychological symptoms in breast cancer patients but also improved quality of life, including self-esteem which plays an important for long-term benefits for women diagnosed with breast cancer.

"Let foods be your medicine and let medicines be your food", using foods as medication has been a dream of many scholars and scientists over past many centuries. In order to achieve these, consumption of whole food medicine must accompany with moderated exercise, change of diet and life style.

Evidence from laboratory studies opinionated, regular drinking of green tea improved bone health and reduced risk of osteoporosis and fractures.

Bone health is measured by bone mineral density which has an direct influence in risk of osteoporosis and fractures.

Green tea, a precious drink processes numbers of health benefit known to almost everyone in Asia and Western world. However, as yin in nature herbal medicine ,or food, long term injection of large amounts may obstruct the balance of yin-yang, induced "yin excessive syndrome" or "yang vacuity syndrome" including weaken immunity and painful case of GERD,... according to traditional Chinese medicine's Yin-Yang theory. But adding a slice of ginger will benign the problem.

According to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, green tea lovers have a reduced risk of lower bone mineral density due to its bioactive components with bone-protective properties.

The study also found that, regular green tea drinking promotes bone health in bone mineral loss menopausal women through increased bone mass, thus reducing risk of osteoporosis, a common disease in aging population.

Furthermore, intake of green also protected early onset of bone mineral loss in obese subjects. 

Other study conducted by the same group of researchers also stated, the bone density protective effect of green tea may involve the bioactive components' effects in decreased risk of fracture by supporting osteoblastic activities while suppressing osteoclastic activities as well as attenuating oxidative stress in promoted healthy levels of bone mineral density.

In postmenopausal osteopenic women study, green tea with optimized dose of polyphenols showed an enhanced osteoprotective efficacy in improved bone mass, microarchitecture integrity, and bone strength observed through the advanced imaging technology.

Dr, Shen CL, the lead author in the studies said, " Tea polyphenols enhance osteoblastogenesis and suppress osteoclastogenesis in vitro" and "Animal studies reveal that intake of tea polyphenols have pronounced positive effects on bone as shown by higher bonemass and trabecular bone volume, number, and thickness and lower trabecular separation via increasing boneformation and inhibition of bone resorption, resulting in greater bone strength".

Promisingly, in a total study of 171 postmenopausal osteopenic women to compare the efficacy of green tea polyphenols (GTP) supplement and/or Tai Chi in risk of osteoporosis, randomly assigned to four groups: (1) placebo (500 mg starch/day), (2) GTP (500 mg GTP/day), (3) placebo + TC (placebo plus TC training at 60 min/session, three sessions/week), and (4) GTP + TC (GTP plus TC training).for 6 months, intake of green and tai chi exercise groups increased bone-specific alkaline phosphatase(bone protective glycoprotein found on the surface of osteoblasts) and improved BAP/(tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase, osteoclast increased risk of bone turnover)/TRAP ratio.

Additionally, group received also green tea showed a significant improved muscle strength in postmenopausal women with osteopenia.

Taking together, green tea may be served as functional food to protect bone mineral density in all people with/ without risk of osteoporosis.

In Herbal Medicine, symptoms of the diseases can only be eased gradually, depending to stage of the treatment which directly address to the cause of the disease.

Kidney bean may process potential beneficial health effects in anti-human immunodeficiency virus (anti-HIV), the recent joint study suggested.
Kidney bean is popular food, with  kidney shape, strong flavor and color in reddish brown in nature, used often as an excellent dietary selection because of enormous health benefits with a good source of protein and minerals.

Human immunodeficiency virus(HIV) is the viral cause of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome overtime, if infected

According to the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Lectins, class of sugar-binding proteins found abundantly in all beans, including kidney bean exhibited anti viral effect against the HIV-1-RT activity.

Dr. Ng TB, the lead author in the study of inhibitory effects of antifungal proteins on human immunodeficiency virus type 1 said, "(Kidney beanexert the) ability to inhibit human immunodeficiency virustype I (HIV-1) reverse transcriptase(, an enzyme regulated the formation of RNA from a DNA), protease(an enzyme that breaks down proteins and peptides) and integrase (produced by HIV vieus), enzymes essential to the life cycle of HIV-1".

The study also indicated that the efficacy of all leguminous antifungal proteins with potential in inhibited HIV-1  to some extent are attributed to activities of reverse enzymes function.

Some researchers insisted that Kidney beans also exerted immunomodulatory activity in regulated presences of B and T cell immune response directed against the glycine-rich cell wall protein (GRP) in patients with different autoimmune disorders, including immune dysfunction in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.

Taking altogether, Kidney bean may process anti viral property against human immunodeficiency virus causing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome through expression of reserve function of certain enzyme and induced immunomodulatory exhibition in regulated B and T cell in auto immune response.

In Herbal Medicine, symptoms of the diseases can only be eased gradually, depending to stage of the treatment which directly address to the cause of the disease.

The use of plants for healing purposes has been predated long before the existence of  modern medicine. Herbal plants have formed a fundamental source for conventional medicine in discovery of single ingredient medication, including aspirin (from willow bark), quinine (from cinchona bark), and morphine (from the opium poppy)......

Andrographis paniculata is also known as Andrographis is a herbaceous plant, genus Andrographis, belonging to the family Acanthaceae, native to India and Sri Lanka, used in traditional Siddha and Ayurvedic in treating the common cold, flu, upper respiratory infections, infectious diseases, diarrhea, dysentery, cholera, pneumonia, ...

Cognitive impairment is considered as an early stage of dementia related to progression of aging.

Andrographis paniculata (Burm. F.) Wall. Ex Nees (Acanthaceae), the forgotten herbal medicine may have a potential effect in reduced the early brain cell damage in expression of cognitive impairment, a renowned institute study suggested.

According to the joint study lead by the Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University),
Andrographolide extracts isolated from the herb, exhibited an significant property against diabetes associated cognitive deficits, increased acetylcholinesterase activity and deteriorated antioxidative status which can increased risk of  the cognitive impairment.

In the study of Streptozotocin-induced diabetic Charles Foster albino rats treated orally with a hydro-methanolic A. paniculata leaf extract (50, 100 and 200 mg/kg/day), or with pure andrographolide (15, 30 and 60 mg/kg/day) for 10 consecutive days, group treated showed an increased levels of antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), and catalase (CAT) and decreased lipid peroxidation (LPO) in brain tissues.

Dr. the lead author said, "AP or andrographolide treatments dose dependently attenuated cognitive deficits, reduced acetylcholinesterase activity, oxidative stress, improved diabetic hyperglycemia and insulin deficiency".

In the social species Octodon degus (degu) developed Alzheimer's-like pathology with age, oral administration of (Andrographolide, ANDRO), to aged degus (56-month old) for 3 months in comparison to administrated saline of control groups (young degus: 12-month old and aged degus: 56-month old), showed a strong effect on recovery of spatial memory and learning performance and protection of brain tissues against plague accumulation in inducing brain neural damage associated with aging processes.

In support of the above analysis, the study of "Andrographolide reduces cognitive impairment in young and mature AβPPswe/PS-1 mice" suggested that the efficacy of the herbal medicine not only protects the long-term potentiation (LTP) against the damage induced by Aβ oligomers, but also prevent the changes in neuropathology in tested subjects. 

In fact, ANDRO also reduced the Aβ levels, changing the ontogeny of amyloid plaques, and tau phosphorylation in regulated brain cell survival around the Aβ oligomeric species.

There is no doubt that Andrographis paniculata may have a pharmaceutical value in treating cognitive impairment, further large sample size and multi centers studies are necessary.

Intake of  herbal medicine can not ameliorated symptoms of illness immediately.  Symptoms of the diseases can only be eased gradually, depending to stage of the treatment which directly address to the cause of the disease.

Recent study by a renowned institute suggested that Chaste tree berry may have a potential in improved male infertility as  a contraceptive functional food.

Infertility is condition of inability of a couple to conceive after 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse. It effects over 5 millions couple alone in the U. S. and many times more in the world. Because of unawareness of treatments, only 10% seeks help from professional specialist.

Chaste tree berry is a species of Vitex agnus-castus, genus Vitex, belonging to the family Lamiaceae, native to the Mediterranean region, used in herbal medicine for thousands of year as anaphrodisiac herb and considered as Queen herb in treating menstrual problems and discomforts.

According to the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, flavonoid-rich seed extracts of Chaste tree berry oral administration, promoted sperm numbers dwindled and slackness in their motility of that may impede fertility.

In extract fed male rats with four different concentrations after 15 days, treatment of all concentrations displayed a drop in weight with a marginal change of fructose in seminal vesicles and epididymal alpha-glucosidase, probably involved in reducing the fertilizing ability of the spermatozoa.

Dr. Das S, the lead author said, "the seedextracts of V. negundo interfere with male reproductive function without producing adverse toxicity in other vital organs".

Interestingly, the same extract used in testing the antiandrogenic effects in dog model, administrated dogs showed a antagonized androgen action of exogenous testosterone on the male reproductive system, reducing sexual design and impeded sperm production and mobility.

In the duration of treatment of 30 and 60 days, the extract causes a disruption of the latter stages of spermatogenesis with devoid of spermatozoa passed through epididymides. 

Furthermore, when the extract used combination with testosterone propionate, a ester of propionic acid,. dogs maintained the viability of spermatozoa with significantly increased the cellular heights of epididymides in compared non treatment dogs.

Taking together, chaste tree berry intake may be acted as infertile substance for male to prevent unwanted pregnancy of female partner, but the use of the herbal medicine for contraceptive purpose should only recommended by herbalists.
