Sarcoidosis, is an inflammatory disease caused by abnormal collections of inflammatory cells (granulomas) induced the form of nodules in multiple organs, including the liver. According to the Maastricht University, patients with sarcoidosis are found to have lower antioxidant defense and exaggerated oxidative stress(1).
Bromelain, derived from pineapple with the power of anti anti-inflammation and anti-cancers(3) may be beneficiary for people with inflammatory diseases(3). According to University of Maryland medical center, 500 mg per day of bromelain may reduce inflammation caused in patient with sarcoidosis(4).
ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid found abundantly in flax seed oil and olive plays a critical role played by inflammation in the pathogenesis of several diseases(5), through inhibition of production of inflammatory cytokines and improvement of lipid metabolism(5)(6).
The effectiveness of Raspberry, Olive and Pineapple Juices may serve as cornerstones of pharmaceutical target for further studies in production of a potential medication for reduced risk, complications and treatment of sarcoidosis with little or no adverse effects.
People who are at high risk of Sarcoidosis due to aging, weaken immunity, .... should drink at least one serving daily and people with Sarcoidosis should drink the smoothie as much as they can, depending to digestive toleration.
