Sea cucumber, Holothuria scabra, is an echinoderm marine animal that has long been used as a traditional therapeutic in various diseases due to its chemical composition and protein enrichment. Many researchers have extensively studied the efficacy of sea cucumber extracts for many health benefits in recent years. Inflammation is a complex process involved in pro-/anti-inflammatory cytokine products. However, the role of the H. scabra extracts in anti-inflammation and its molecular regulations ha...

Background The root of Baliospermum montanum has been used as an ingredient of traditional Thai medicines for the treatments of several diseases including itching eczema, muscle and joint inflammation, and cancer. Few studies have been done on phytochemical components of this root. In this study, we isolated major compounds of the crude ethanolic extract of B. montanum root and developed and validated a high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method for the determination of its major comp...

A Thai traditional remedy called Benchalokawichian (BLW) consists of 5 plant species, Ficus racemosa, Capparis micracantha, Clerodendrum petasites, Harrisonia perforata, and Tiliacora triandra. It has long been used in Thai traditional medicine to reduce fever in respiratory tract infection, but there is no report on either cytotoxicity against cancer cell lines of the respiratory tract system or anti-inflammatory effect. Thus, the objectives of this research were to investigate the cytotoxic ac...

Encapsulation of plumbagin using cyclodextrins (CDs), including α-cyclodextrin (αCD), β-cyclodextrin (βCD), and γ-cyclodextrin (γCD) to form inclusion complexes was investigated to prevent the loss of plumbagin in pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. Computational simulations and phase solubility studies suggest that the complex formations of plumbagin with CDs are possible. βCD is chosen, as it has the lowest price and can form the complex in a wide concentration range with 1:1 host–guest...

Abstract It is possible that food diversity was the basic factor in the Paleolithic diet responsible for adequacy of nutrients, 40,000 years ago. Efforts for food security, made the policy makers blind to try for functional food security characterized with food diversity and adequacy of nutrients. The epidemic of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) throughout the world is closely linked to food security characterized with greater availability of Western-type foods and sedentary behavior ...

Abstract Background: Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) have become a worldwide problem due food security and lack of physical activity. The rapid increase may be due to interaction of genes/memes and environment, having adverse effects on the epigenome. A new package of nutrient-rich functional foods (FFs) or a package of micronutrients (based on healthy foods) and egg or soy bean milk, may protect against epigenetic inheritance, which is probably a safe strategy for protection from diseases. Meth...
