The smoothie for Reduced Risk and treatment of Oxidative stress
Yield: 2 serving (about 8 ounce each)
1 cup blueberry
1/2 cup cooked tomato
1 cup rice milk
1. Place the all ingredients in a blender and puree about 1 minute
2. Blend on high speed about 1 minute or until the mixture is thick and the ice is well crushed. Add more green tea drink if needed
3. Serve immediately
The dream of finding the natural ingredient for prevention and treatment of oxidative stress without adverse effects in replacement of conventional medicine has not been abated. Some ingredients have to discard due to it can achieve the same potent results in human trials.
In fact, oxidative stress is considered as one of most common factor for the development of several chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Antioxidants, found mostly in fruits and vegetables play an important role in inhibition of the reactive oxygen species ROS through its function as a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules.
Recent studies suggested that blue berry(1), tomato(5) may consist a therapeutic value for reduced risk and treatment of oxidative stress in induction of diseases and syndromes.
Blueberry is a flower plant, belongings to the family Eriaceae and native to Northern America. The edible fruit has now been cultivated all over the world in suitable climate for commercial profits due to recent discovery of its health benefits, particular in oxidative stress effect.According to the joint study lead by the Istanbul University, Blueberries (BB) containing high antioxidant capacity, exhibited dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activities in decreased the expression of oxidative stress causes of hepatic cirrhosis and preneoplastic lesions(1).
Other study in the evaluation of its antioxidants known as anthocyanins expressed the possible effect of blueberry in attenuated oxidative stress and inflammatory cytokines, through activation of immune natural killer cell count in 6 weeks of administration(2).
The joint study by China Agricultural University, in support of the effects of anthocyanins against oxidative stress suggested that the antioxidant inhibited reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation and prevented the successive events associated with the mitochondrial damage and dysfunction, including recovered activities of electron transport chain, through intervention of Acrylamide (AA) toxicity incuded by heat(3). Furthermore, daily intake of blueberry (BB) supplementations also found to decrease oxidative stress signalling, increase neurogenesis, and increase signals involved in learning and memory through increased hippocampal neurogenesis related brain function and expression of insulin-like growth factor 1 in enhanced immunity(4).
Tomato is a red, edible fruit, genus Solanum, belongs to family Solanaceae, native to South America. Because of its health benefits, tomato is grown world wide for commercial purpose
and often in green house.
In Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells, lycopene found in cooked tomato significantly increased manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) expression and decreased cellular ROS levels via the PI3K-Akt pathway in regulating cell cycle(5).
Dr. Lei X and colleagues in the joint study of a total of total of 60 male C57BL/6 mice, lead by the Shanxi Medical University, indicated that lycopene exhibited anti oxidative stress through improved the neurological score and attenuated neuronal apoptosis in the BCCAO mice in activation of metabolic and anti-oxidant defenses(6).
In acute cholestasis, the phytochemical also expressed the hepato protective role in diseases related to oxidative stress through inhibition of pathogenesis of cholestasis(7).
Dr Kim M and Dr., Kim H at the Yonsei University, in the investigation of gastric carcinogenesis said:" Risk factors of gastric carcinogenesis include oxidative stress,..... " and " lycopene, one of the naturally occurring carotenoids, has unique structural and chemical features that contributes to a potent antioxidant activity(8).
Taking altogether, Smoothie of Blueberry and Cooked Tomato may be effective for reduced risk of and treatment of oxidative stress and its complications. People with high risk of oxidative stress, such as smoking,... should drink the smoothie at least one daily and people with oxidative stress induced chronic illness should drink as much as they can, depending to the digestive toleration.
