Litchi chinensis Sonn. (lychee), a fruit from a subtropical evergreen tree, cultivated throughout Southeast Asia, particularly in China. It has been reported to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antidiabetic activities.

This study was performed wuith a 70% ethanol extract from lychee on rats.

It did dose-dependently inhibited collagen- and ADP-induced platelet aggregation in platelet-rich plasma.

 It also significantly prolonged coagulation times.

It increased fibrinolytic activity in a dose-dependent manner.

These results demonstrated the antithrombotic effects of LCE and suggest that Litchi chinensis may be a new natural source for the development of antiplatelet, anticoagulant and thrombolytic therapeutics for thrombotic and cardiovascular diseases.

Chiropractors and Exercise Are Better than Drugs Says New Study





The first pressed, without chemical treatments  and extracted directly from the olive fruit by grinding, what is known as “cold pressed".
The best olive oil is organic cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil.

Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) obtained from the first pressing provides the anti-inflammatory benefits of the oil. 

EVOO contains phytonutrients, especially polyphenols, which are anti-inflammatory.

Mediterranean diet containing olive oil  decreases the risk of heart disease. Olive oil containing polyphenols hydroxytyrosol (HT) - helps protect the cells that line blood vessels from being damaged by oxidative process.

Mechanism of protection of vessels by olive oil:

HT triggers changes at a genetic level in the vessel cells to enhance their antioxidant defense system. Olive oil  also contains antioxidants vitamin E and beta-carotene. Olive oil also provides our blood vessels with unique molecules like HT that actually work at a genetic level to help the cellular walls of the blood vessels remain strong.

  • Olive oil has long been recognized for its unusual fat content. This plant oil is one of the few widely used culinary oils that contains about 75% of its fat in the form of oleic acid (a monounsaturated, omega-9 fatty acid). In terms of monounsaturated fat, the closest common culinary oil to olive is canola oil, with about 60% of its fat coming in monounsaturated form. By contrast, the fat in soybean oil in only 50-55% monounsaturated; in corn oil, it's about 60%; in sunflower oil, about 20%; and in safflower oil, only 15%. When diets low in monounsaturated fat are altered to increase the monounsaturated fat content (by replacing other oils with olive oil), research study participants tend to experience a significant decrease in their total blood cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and LDL:HDL ratio. Recent research studies have taken these heart-healthy effects of olive oil one step further. Olive oil's monounsaturated fat content (specifically, its high level of oleic acid) has now been determined to be a mechanism linking olive oil intake to decreased blood pressure. Researchers believe that the plentiful amount of oleic acid in olive oil gets absorbed into the body, finds its way into cell membranes, changes signaling patterns at a cell membrane level (specifically, altering G-protein associated cascades) and thereby lowers blood pressure. To our knowledge, this is the first time that the monounsaturated fat content of olive oil has been linked not only to cholesterol reduction, but also to reduction of blood pressure.

    Olive oil contains monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), ? a healthy dietary fat.

    Polyunsaturated fats are (PUFAs).

    Saturated fats

    MUFAs may also help normalze blood clotting.

    And some research shows that MUFAs may also benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which can be especially helpful if you have type 2 diabetes.

    Also, be aware that heat, light and air can affect the taste of olive oil and possibly its health-promoting nutrients. Store olive oil in a dark, room-temperature cupboard, or even in the refrigerator. The fats and healthy phytonutrients in olive oil — as well as the taste — can slowly degrade over time, so it's probably best to use it within a year or within six months once opened

    Olive oil: What are the health benefits?If olive oil is high in fat, why is it considered healthy?Answer

    from Donald Hensrud, M.D
    Olive oil, extra virgin
    The George Mateljan Foundation



     extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) obtained from the first pressing of the oil to the anti-inflammatory benefits of virgin olive oils (non-EVOO) obtained from later pressings. What researchers found was an ability of EVOO to lower inflammatory markers in the blood when non-EVOOs were unable to do so. (Study measurements included blood levels of thromboxane A2, or TXA2, and leukotriene B2, or LBT2.) This ability of extra virgin olive oil to help protect against unwanted inflammation is not surprising, since EVOO is known to contain stronger concentrations of phytonutrients (especially polyphenols) that have well-known anti-inflammatory properties.

    *Not even olive oil (monounsaturated), explained by Dr. Esselstyn in the video below. Long and short term study show that there is no difference in CAD progression between olive oil and other monounsaturated oil and saturated oil such as butter. Beside, olive oil also implied as causative factor for breast cancer.

    "NO OIL! Not even olive oil, which goes against a lot of other advice out there about so-called good fats. The reality is that oils are extremely low in terms of nutritive value. They contain no fiber, no minerals and are 100% fat calories. And above all they contain saturated fat which immediately injures the endothelial lining of the arteries when eaten. It doesn't matter whether it's olive oil, corn oil, or any other kind of oil. You should not consume any oil if you have heart disease. This is so important I have detailed oil in Chapter 10"32

    Stem of Spatholobus suberectu (SSE)

    The vine stem of Spatholobus suberectu (SSE) showed antiplatelet activity without anticoagulant effects mainly through the inhibition of fibrinogen binding to the GP IIb/IIIa receptor. SSE is used for the treatment of diseases related to blood stasis syndrome in traditional medicine in Korea, Japan, and China.

    Anti atherosclerosis and heart disease. Garlic contains allicin and ajoene, which act to prevent blood platelets from sticking together and forming clots (the University of Michigan Health System).

     In addition to its antiplatelet actions, garlic also lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, which are all important to cardiovascular health, notes the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

    A study published in 1991 found that garlic reduced platelet aggregation, or "stickiness," in humans, the University of Michigan notes.

     Ginger can decrease platelet stickiness when you take it in this amount or more, according to a 1997 study of ginger's effects on blood platelet aggregation, as well as blood sugar and lipids, in people with coronary artery disease.  It takes a minimum of 1 tsp. of ginger each day for the herb to be effective, the University of Michigan Health System.

    Mechanism of anti-inflammatory action of ginger:Ginger suppresses pro inflammatory cells from where  prostaglandin and leukotriene synthesis takes ploace,and this distinguishes it from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These properties may have a better therapeutic profile and fewer side effects than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

    Ginger inhibits the induction of several gene encoding cytokines, chemokines, and the inducible enzyme cyclooxygenase-2, involved in the chronic inflammatory response.1

    A study published in the November 2003 issue of Life Sciences suggests that at least one reason for ginger�s beneficial effects is the free radical protection afforded by one of its active phenolic constituents, 6-gingerol. In this in vitro (test tube) study, 6-gingerol was shown to significantly inhibit the production of nitric oxide, a highly reactive nitrogen molecule that quickly forms a very damaging free radical called peroxynitrite. Another study appearing in the November 2003 issue of Radiation Research found that in mice, five days treatment with ginger (10 mg per kilogram of body weight) prior to exposure to radiation not only prevented an increase in free radical damage to lipids (fats found in numerous bodily components from cell membranes to cholesterol), but also greatly lessened depletion of the animals� stores of glutathione, one of the body�s most important internally produced antioxidants.

    A study published in the February 2005 issue of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine sheds further light on the mechanisms of action that underlie ginger's anti-inflammatory effectiveness. In this research, ginger was shown to suppress the pro-inflammatory compounds (cytokines and chemokines) produced by synoviocytes (cells comprising the synovial lining of the joints), chrondrocytes (cells comprising joint cartilage) and leukocytes (immune cells).

    Taking ginkgo biloba may help to thin your blood by preventing excessive blood platelet coagulation. Ginkgo appears to inhibit the platelet activating factor, or "PAF," which is a chemical that encourages your blood to coagulate and form clots, explains the University of Michigan Health System. A 1990 controlled clinical trial in Germany found that ginkgo effectively reduced excessive blood platelet coagulation.



    Anti atherosclerotic

    Turmeric can also act like antiplatelet medications and reduce your blood's tendency to form clots. Several studies have suggested that turmeric may be effective in preventing atherosclerosis, notes the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. According to a report published in 1985, turmeric's active constituent, curcumin, was shown in animal studies to have antiplatelet effects, says the University of Michigan Health System. A preliminary medical study published in 1995 found that curcumin stops platelet aggregation in humans as well.

    Peony and bilberry have also shown antiplatelet effects similar to turmeric, the University of Michigan adds.

This means that appropriately high doses of Vitamin E may be substituted for Coumadin. Vitamin E may be considered safer than warfarin, the generic name of Coumadin. Increase the dose of Vitamin E over a period of weeks. Most people start with 200 IU daily, and eventually get to between 1,200 and 2,400 IU daily. Do it gradually, and here's a way to tell how it is working - Go in to see your doctor regularly, as you always do, and continue to have him check your protime with a blood test called the PT-INR (Pro Time - International Normalized Ratio), as he always does. If you get the protime numbers he wants, he may not care how you got them and they can be mainteaned safely. The more Vitamin E you take, the stronger the Coumadin's effect. You'll probably get to the point where your protime is too long, and your doctor may have to reduce the dosage of Coumadin."
