Beet may be one of function food, having an anti inflammatory potential in reduced pain in damage tissues or local infection.
Inflammation is a natural reaction of 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 oedema 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 experiment to induce infection.
Neutrophils are white blood cells formed an important role in defense against infection and inflamamtion caused by injure and microorganisms invasion and neutrophil migration is a rapid movement of white blood cells to the location of infection or inflammation.
The study emphasized that in compared to a group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, aqueous extract of leaves of Beta vulgaris at specific dose exhibited a stronger and higher inhibition of acute inflammation induced by prostaglandin synthesis, including the inflammatory response to diverse stimuli in induced temporary increase of physiological activity.
TNF-α, a tumor necrosis factor, a protein with function in regulated the production of inflammatory cytokins in the acute phase of invasion by foreign substances, and nterleukin (IL)-1β has a duo functions in activated either pro-inflammatory cytokine or anti-inflammatory myokines.and promoted
IL-10 expression in production of 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.
