If you expect that herbal medicine will ease the symptoms of your illness immediately, you will be disappointed. 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 beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) prolonged administration has shown to reduce sugar blood levels of test subjects, a renowned institute study suggested.

Kidney bean is popular because of its kidney shape, strong flavor and color of reddish brown in nature, It is often an excellent dietary selection with no cholesterol, but a good source of protein and minerals.

According to the University of Extremadura, oral administration of alpha-amylase isolated and purified from an extract of white kidney beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) at 50 mg/kg body weight to adult Wistar rats, ameliorated the increase in glycaemia over the basal value, without modifying the insulin response.

Hyperglycemia is a condition of abnormal high levels of blood sugar, affecting people with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, as well as pregnant women with gestational diabetes.

Dr. Tormo MA, the lead author said, "(The extract expressed) significant anorexigenic(appetite suppressant) action of the inhibitor; there was reduced food intake...., a reduced weight gain,...., as well as changes in the activity of some intestinal enzymes".

In fact, the extracts of kidney beans ( Phaseolus vulgaris ) reduced glycemia as in studies of rodents and humans may be attributed to the direct interference with the central mechanism(s) in regulating appetite, food intake, and food palatability, inhibited enzymes response to process of starch digestion and hunger. 

In genetically obese Zucker fa/fa rats, dry extract administered daily, at doses of 50 and 500 mg/kg, in three 5 days treatment periods followed by three 20 days off-treatment periods, decreased in daily food intake and body weight and suppressed glycaemia in both treatment phases.

The investigation of clinical use of the combination of P. vulgaris and C. scolymus extracts also supported the hypoglycaemic effects of kidney bean as a successful example of translational research in the pharmaceutical-grade and standardized nutrient field.

With the collected information, kidney bean no doubt has processed a clinical value with potential of becoming a standard medicine for treatment in controlling and management of hyperglycemia in obese and over weight patients.

Whole food(herbal medicine) used as medical treatment,  linking health benefits in prevention, management and treatment of diseases has induced much interests in today renowned scientists.
But many researchers have raised question of herbal quality, because geographic differences, time of grown and harvest, etc. may effect their's potency. I do believe, these questions can only be answered by experience herbalists.

Cruciferous Vegetables containing various phytochemical compounds may be the best vegetables for reduced risk and treatment of colon cancer.
According to the joint study lead by the China Medical University, sulforaphane (SFN), an isothiocyanate, existed only in cruciferous vegetables, interfered the cancer cell cycle division in induction of apoptosis in HCT 116 cells.

Cruciferous vegetables are the group of vegetables belonging to the family Brassicaceae, including cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli etc.

Colon cancer is a condition of the abnormal proliferation of cells in the colon..

Dr. Martin SL the lead author in the study of the effect of sulforaphane (SFN) against colon cancer cells, said, " sulforaphane (SFN), found in cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cabbage and broccoli sprouts, has been present as one of the most potent (histone deacetylase) HDAC inhibitors to date. " and " HDAC inhibition is a promising approach for delaying and/or preventing CRC and may be accomplished via consumption of SFN in cruciferous vegetables".

Futhermore, sulforaphane (SF) also expressed its chemoprotective properties in immortalized human colonic epithelial cell lines with no harm to normal tissues and levels of steroidogenic enzymes which play an important role in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases.

In multiple genetic and signaling pathway alterations underline the development of colon cancer study, 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM), a natural compound derived from cruciferous vegetables also significantly suppressed colcon cancer effect  through targeting Wnt/β-catenin signaling, a highly conserved pathway through evolution, regulates key cellular functions including proliferation, differentiation.

According to Dr. Tse G and Dr. Eslick GD. in the address of phytochemicals of Cruciferous Vegetables against colon cancer said, " Evidence shows cruciferous vegetables exhibit chemoprotective properties, commonly attributed to their rich source of isothiocyanates......, cruciferous vegetable intake protects against cancer of the colon" and " (cruciferous vegetable )demonstrates the significance of gene-diet interactions".

Although cruciferous Vegetable has shown to process a potency in treatment of colon cancer, further human trials are necessary to confirm its validation.

Cruciferous vegetables with rich of phytochemcals may be the food for reduced risk and treatment of
chemical carcinogens

According to the Universidade Federal de Ouro Preto, sulforaphane (SFN),the isothiocyanate (ITC) group of organosulfur compounds found in cruciferous vegetable expressed chemopreventive properties involved in detoxification processes of chemical carcinogens.

Dr. de Figueiredo SM, the lead author said, " In a dose dependent manner, ITC inhibits the viability of human cancer cells, modifies epigenetic events that occur in cancer cells and present antiinflammatory effect acting during the initial of uncontrolled cell proliferation." 

Chemical carcinogens are types of cancer caused by chemical toxins in induction of cellular and chromosomes change, DNA damage, etc.

The chemoprotective activity of the vegetable is the result of the significant expression of the antioxidants in cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in cancer cells as well as acting as the post-initiation stages of carcinogenesis, as a 'suppressing' agent involving the ability to modulate the Nrf2 in reduced damage from oxidative damage.

In fact, beside use as chemopreventive agent against chemical carcinogenesis, sulforaphane (SFN),the major chemical constituent of cruciferous vegetables also inhibited the drug-metabolizing enzymes that cause activation/neutralization of carcinogenic metabolites and protecting normal healthy cells from environmental toxin induced of cancers.

Furthermore, the phytochemical exhibited the molecular mechanisms responsible for the overall chemopreventive effects on selective cytotoxicity,  in reduced oxidate stress, free radicals produced by lipid peroxidation in cells.

In the study of tobacco smoke carcinogens induced chemical tumors, cruciferous vegetable consumption has shown to inversely associate the development of cancer. In animal experiments. the chemopreventive effects of isothiocyanates, another compound found cruciferous vegetable, inhibited the metabolic activation of carcinogens by cytochrome P450s, enzymes with function in metabolized potentially toxic compounds.

Taking together, intake of cruciferous vegetables have a potential health benefits against environment toxins in cancer development, but due to small size of the sample, further studies are necessary to address its viability.

People who turn to alternative medicine for treatment of any disease in avoidance of adverse side effects induced by conventional medicine should be patient.
If you expect that herbal medicine will ease the symptoms of your illness immediately, you will be disappointed. Herbal medicine  can only ease symptoms gradually, depending to stage of the treatment which directly address to the cause of disease.

Oral administration of whole food Aloe Vera showed to improve male reproductive parameters. 

Aloe Vera is species of succulent plant in the genus Aloe, belonging to the Family Xanthorrhoeaceae, native to Sudan. It has become very popular for commercial cultivation due to enormous health benefits. Aloe vera has also been used in herbal medicine in treating many kinds of disease, including wound, burn healing, minor skin infections, sebaceous cysts, diabetes, anhe d elevated of cholesterol, etc.

Whole-body X-ray irradiation-induced testicular alterations in mice is associated to Male Reproductive dysfunction.
 Pretreatment of Aloe vera extract promoted sperm count/motility and testosterone levels significantly through reduced elevation in the levels of reactive oxygen species, lipid peroxidation, and improved oxidant enzymes, according to the joint study lead by the Panjab University.

Dr. Bala S, the lead author said, "Irradiated animals pre-treated with A. vera extract revealed an improvement in antioxidant status, inhibition of lipid peroxides, apoptotic cell formation and enhanced testicular parameters when compared to the X-ray-exposed group".

In a total of participants of 49(36 women, 13 men; 31 ± 10.3 years of age) recruited from the faculty, staff, students, and community members from a chiropractic college to participate in a 21-day weight loss program, pre treatment of cleanse supplementation included Aloe Vera induced weight loss and improved total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels and increased in testosterone for men.

Furthermore, oral administration of graded doses (100, 200 and 400 mg/kg) of ethanol extract of Aloe. barbadensis root in rat study, significantly increased mounting and intromission frequency, testosterone and cholesterol concentrations with the best aphrodisiac effects showed in lowest dose of 100 mg/kg.

The study also addressed, the ethanol extract may be used to treat hypotestosteronemia because of its ability to increase testosterone without inducing adverse effect of toxicity. 

Taking together, Aloe Vera may have a potential effect in exhibited male reproductive parameters, but more precised understanding of the biological activities is necessary.

But many researchers have raised question of herbal quality, because geographic differences, time of grown and harvest, etc. may effect their's potency. I do believe, these questions can only be answered by experience herbalists.

Celery may be used as analgesic agent in treating chronic musculoskeletal pain.
Recent study suggested that celery used conjunction with other herbs, such as Urtica dioica (stinging nettle), Boswellia serrata, Equisetum arvense, and Apium graveolens expressed the pain relief which impacts the motion and mobility at each location with pain. in patient of persistent musculoskeletal pain for at least 4 months.

Dr. Hedaya R. the author in the study said, " (the five herbs and vitamin B1)(showed a) clinically significant reduction in perceived pain and improvement in functional mobility.... for the intervention group as related to their chronic joint, back, and muscle pain".

Celery is a species of Apium graveolens, belonging to the family Apiaceae, cultivated all around the globe as a vegetable. Celery can grow to 1/2 m tall with stalks (leaf on the top) arranging in a conical shape joined at a common base.

Celery Seed Extract (CSE), in comparison to conventional medicine, aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen in suppressing pain in arthritis exerted more efficient result in ameliorated existing inflammation and exhibited analgesic effect in test animals.

The study also suggested that in analgesic effects, the extract does affect the p450 enzyme systems
in metabolism as well as altering the metabolism of drugs which the individual may be taking.

In Ulcers induced by indomethacin, cytodestructive agents (80% ethanol, 0.2 M NaOH and 25% NaCl) and cold restraint stress, celery extract expressed its antioxidant property in protection of the decrease levels of gastric wall mucus(GWM) and suppressed the basal gastric secretion with no toxic symptoms.

Taking together,  there is no doubt that celery processed an analgesic effect in reduced pain causes by induction of proinflammatory cytokins through its antioxidant activities. In take of herbal product, instead of whole food celery should be taken with care.

Intake of cruciferous vegetables regularly may improve immune function in lowering the toxic effects of environmental pollutants such as dioxin.
Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR), a protein best known for its role in mediating toxicity, showed to reduce toxin effect through exhibited intestinal immune function, according to the The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.

Cruciferous vegetables are the group of vegetables belonging to the family Brassicaceae, including cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli etc.

Phenethyl isothiocyanate, a chemical found in Cruciferous Vegetables, in normal BALB/c mice study, promoted immune responses in inhibition of murine leukemia WEHI-3 cells, through stimulating the immunomodulations.

Other phytochemicals, indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane (SFN), found in the vegetables also addressed the immunodulatory effects against suppression of growth of murine WEHI-3 leukemia cells through immune promotion of increased the level of T cells and decreased the level of macrophages, a mobile white blood cell in responsible for detecting, engulfing and destroying pathogens and apoptotic cells.

In enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, sulforaphane (SFN), inhibited T cell proliferation and the production of inflammatory cytokins in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) by enhancing the antiarthritic and immune regulatory effects.

Truly, Cruciferous Vegetable has no doubt processed  immunodulatory effects through the presence of  its phytochemicals in promotion of immune function.

The use of plants for healing purposes has been predated long before the existence of  modern medicine. Today, 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)......


Aloe Vera or Aloe Vera supplement may be used to delay skin aging degeneration in induced expression of wrinkle.

Aloe Vera is species of succulent plant in the genus Aloe, belonging to the Family Xanthorrhoeaceae, native to Sudan. It is very popular for commercial cultivation due to its health benefits, used in herbal medicine in treating many kinds of disease, including wound, burn healing, minor skin infections, sebaceous cysts, diabetes, and elevated of cholesterol, etc.

Wrinkle is a skin degenerative condition caused by the loss of dermis and subcutaneous fat layer underneath the skin, leading to a slight line or fold on the skin, particular in the face.

According to the Food Ingredients & Technology Institute, daily oral intake of plant sterols of Aloe vera gel (Aloe sterol) significantly increases the skin barrier function, moisture, and elasticity in photoprotected skin of that may reduce risk of skin wrinkle.

In a 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, in 48 apparently healthy men (age range: 30-59 years; average: 45 years), intake of oral Aloe sterol supplementation after 12 weeks showed a significant improvement of the skin elasticity index in comparison in the baseline value.

Dr. Tanaka M, the lead author said, "Aloe sterol ingestion increased skin elasticity in the photodamaged skin of men aged <46 years, and "No Aloe sterol intake-dependent harmful phenomenon was observed during the intake period".

Furthermore, in vitro, Aloe sterols increased production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, natural substance in skin response to connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. approximately two-fold and 1.5-fold, and promoted gene expression levels  in human dermal fibroblasts.

In fact, daily oral Aloe sterol-containing Aloe vera gel powder (AVGP) significantly reduced facial wrinkles in women aged ≥40 years as well as stimulated collagen and hyaluronic acid production by human dermal fibroblasts.

In support of the above evaluation, intake of Aloe Vera gel enhanced healthy skin through promoting elasticity (R2), net elasticity (R5), and biological elasticity (R7) scores and skin fatigue area F3,the Food Ingredients and Technology Institute 12 weeks study suggested.

Taking altogether, there is no doubt that oral administration of  Aloe Vera or Aloe Vera supplements may improve skin condition caused by skin aging degeneration, but quality of amount intake should only be prescribed by related field specialist.
