Scientists may have found a bioactive ingredient for the treatment of liver toxicity with no side effects, according to studies.
Acute liver toxicity is a condition characterized by the harmful effects of a substance or organism induced by a single or short-term exposure.
Dr. Flores YN, the lead scientist in the examination of risk factors for liver disease among Mexican adults in the US and Mexico wrote, "excessive alcohol consumption is a risk factor for liver disease, but only 60% correctly identified hepatitis C, being overweight or obese, or having diabetes as risk factors".
Betanin is phytochemical in the class of red and yellow indole-derived pigments of Betacyanins, belonging to the group of Betalains, found abundantly in beets, chard, etc.
With an aim to find a natural compound for the protection of liver against toxicity researchers examined the betanin (a natural pigment) mitigated effect in Organophosphates (OP)-induced hepatotoxicity in primary rat hepatocytes.
Paraquat-induced liver toxicity in Sprague-Dawley rats without treatment of betanin showed significant liver toxicity observed by elevated serum aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase levels and an increase of enzyme associated with phase I drug metabolism reactions.
