Serbian doctors discover that strawberries protect against ulcer and cancer

Strawberries protect stomach mucous from damage caused by alcohol in high concentration, the latest study that four Serbian doctors worked on together with their colleagues from Italy and Spain showed. The study has been publicized recently in a reputable international journal ‘Plos ONE.’

strawberries ‘Strawberries contain powerful antioxidants thus preventing stomach mucous damages caused by free radicals. We proved that antioxidants from strawberries prevent lipid peroxidation’, Doctor Dragana Dekanski, study co-author explains for ‘Blic’ She is doing medical research with the ‘Galenika’.

She says that experiments were performed on laboratory animals, rats, which were given 40 milligrams per kilo of strawberry extract what is equivalent to daily consume of this fruit by a human being of half a kilo. The rats were given the extract during ten days and after that period they were given alcohol of large concentration.

Results of the research showed that the degree of stomach mucous damage of the animals that were given strawberries was far less than with those that were not given the extract’, Doctor Dekanski says.

‘Apart from alcohol stomach mucous can be damaged by numerous medical drugs such as aspirin and other non steroidal antirheumatic drugs. Strong stress can also cause damage. Damage mucous can result in numerous diseases such as ulcer, gastritis or even cancer of the stomach. Consume of strawberries prevents or delays appearance of those diseases. It is important, however, what strawberries are being taken. The best are those with high level of anthocyanin’, Doctor Dekanski says.

Research co-author Italian Professor Maurizio Battino says that the research was actually aimed to reveal molecules protecting stomach mucous from harmful effect of various agenses.

International research
The whole study over positive effect by strawberries on stomach mucous was elaborated by Professor Maurizio Battino from Italy and Doctor Dragana Dekanski. Apart from them the research also included Serbian Doctor Slavica Ristic of ‘Galenika’, Professor Natasa Petronijevic and Doctor Nevena Radonjic of the Medical Faculty in Belgrade. Apart from Serbian and Italian researchers, the study included researchers from Spain as well.

Guavas are the 'ultimate superfood'

A new study led by an Indian origin researcher has found that guavas are the 'ultimate superfood' with the highest concentration of antioxidants that protect against cell damage which ages skin and can cause cancer.

A series of tests conducted on Indian fruits, including Himalayan apples and pomegranates, bananas from the south and grapes from Maharashtra, found that the guava, the poor man's fruit in India, has the highest concentration of antioxidants as compared to all the other fruits.

According to scientists from India's National Institute in Hyderabad, the Indian plum, the custard apple and India's beloved mangoes, come after guavas in antioxidant richness.

The study found that while there is a presence of antioxidant concentrations of just under 500 milligrams per 100 grams in guavas, 330mg in plums and 135mg in pomegranates, apples have a quarter of the antioxidants in guavas and bananas merely have a tiny fraction with 30 mg per 100 grams.

Watermelons and pineapples were found to offer the least protection for the body's fight against free radicals, which can cause cell damage, whereas mangoes, despite a high fructose content, have 170 mg of antioxidants, which is more than three times that of papaya, and grapes were found to be three times more beneficial to the body than oranges.

"Guava is a rich source of antioxidants, a rich source of fibre. It's a poor mans fruit because they're quite cheap. A guava a day keeps a doctor away," the Telegraph quoted Dr Sreeramulu as saying.

The study will be published in the Food Research International journal.

Antioxidant Juices: Which Packs the Most Punch?

Intensive study on the effects of antioxidants has shown that these compounds can help rid the body of free radicals, which may come from unhealthy processed foods or environmental contaminants. These free radicals contribute to aging and cellular degeneration, which is why antioxidants can be important ingredients in maintaining a person’s health and vitality.

Antioxidants can also help increase the body’s immunity against deadly diseases such as heart ailments, asthma, and cancer. Moreover, they can keep your body working at optimal levels, potentially combating degenerative conditions such as diabetes, dementia, and eye diseases.

Foods rich in antioxidants include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fish oil. Common antioxidants available in foods include vitamins A, C and E, which can be found in carrots, pumpkin, orange and other citrus fruits, and green leafy vegetables. Among the best foods for antioxidant content are fruits and fruit juices that have deep, dark colors, such as grapes and berries.

One particular berry, the acai berry, contains one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants of all foods. Native to Central and South America, acai not only contains antioxidants but also protein, omega fats, electrolytes, and amino acids.

For its array of healthy components, acai berry has been dubbed the wonder berry of the century. For example, the proteins in acai help boost growth, stamina, and cell regeneration. Its omega fats also have the ability to regulate cholesterol level, thus fighting heart disease and stroke. Electrolytes in acai berries also help maintain proper fluid regulation, muscle operation, and nerve impulse transmission in the body.

Unfortunately, the average person needs to consume oranges, grapes, vegetables, and other antioxidant-rich foods in large amounts in order to acquire the full benefits from antioxidants. However, there is a way to enjoy a large quantity of antioxidants in a simple and convenient form – Monavie.

This unique antioxidant supplement is formulated in several blends, all having one common ingredient, acai berry. In addition to acai berry, Monavie includes antioxidants from 18 other nutrient-dense fruits such as orange, grape, banana, blueberry, and cranberry. It is also fortified with Vitamins A, C, E, and B complex. You only need to consume a convenient dose of just two ounces of liquid per day to benefit from its array of antioxidants. This combined with a proper diet and exercise allows you to enjoy a healthier lifestyle using the power of antioxidants.

A needle's worth of relief: Acupuncture gains favor

Written by: Jon Walker

It starts with a needle and ends with relief.

That's the intent as Dr. Dawn Flickema treats Evelyn Bultsma at Avera McKennan's Prairie Center. Bultsma has chronic pain in her left foot and a ringing in her ears that's annoyed her most of her 62 years.

Relief on Friday would come by acupuncture, an ancient art making a modern comeback. Flickema pushed a needle into the outer side of Bultsma's right leg at the knee. She pushed in a second nearby, two more at the ankle and four on the inner leg. She did the same on the left leg, then put needles into each hand and shoulder, and finally, needle 21, in the top of Bultsma's head.

"Sometimes they hurt. Sometimes I barely feel it," Bultsma said before dropping into a 20-minute nap.

Flickema, a graduate of the University of South Dakota School of Medicine, has practiced family medicine in Sioux Falls for 14 years. She didn't think much of acupuncture until her own back pain made her a believer. She went back to school and began offering the treatment a year ago. Now it's half her workload, with perhaps 100 patients today seeking treatment from her. She devotes two days a week to it at the Prairie Center.

"People are looking for alternatives other than prescription medicine to treat chronic problems, diseases and conditions," she said.

Acupuncture doesn't replace traditional medicine, which is most of Flickema's work at McGreevy Clinic. Nor does it solve conditions such as fibromyalgia, though it might help.

The practice rests on the thought that healing emanates outward from the central nervous system. Whereas traditional Western medicine addresses a specific area of the body, such as a sore shoulder, acupuncture uses needles to tap pressure points nowhere near the source of pain.

Flickema uses a needle that is 4 inches long and about as skinny as a strand of hair. She sticks it about a half-inch deep into the flesh, then twists it to access a peripheral nerve.

"I can tell when I'm there. You can feel the resistance," she said.

The needles go in along a system of 12 meridians that trace to Chinese thinking. The meridians run vertically, head to toe and in both arms. Tapping the meridians allows communication in the nervous system to stimulate pain relief.
