3/4 cup tomato
1 tsp curcumin
Recent studies back by well known institutions proposed, Blueberry, Tomato, Turmeric and Grape Juice may be the next generation of natural ingredients for prevention and treatment of Neonatal Hepatitis.
Resveratrol is a phytochemical in the class of Stilbenoids, found abundantly in grape and blueberry may be a potent antioxidant for reduced risk and treatment of neonatal Hepatitis, through its anti viral infection(2).
Carotenoids, found abundantly in carrot and tomato also attenuated risk and treatment of neonatal hepatitis C through exhibition of synergistic effect(8). According to the Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, lutein, a member of carotenoids inhibited the activity of HBV through suppressed the secretion of HBsAg(antigen) from HepG2 2.2.15 cells in a dose-dependent manner(9).
Dr, Mawson AR and Dr. Steele TA., professors at the Des Moines University Osteopathic Medical Center, said, "The reduced rate of survival of liver grafts in patients with HBV infection could also be due to the continued presence of the virus, stimulated by retinoids in the graft tissue. "(10).
The effectiveness of Blueberry, Tomato, Turmeric and Grape Juice may serve as cornerstones of pharmaceutical target for further studies in production of a potential medication for reduced risk, complications and treatment of Neonatal Hepatitis with little or no adverse effects.
Women who are at high risk of Neonatal Hepatitis due to family history, environment factors, .... should drink at least one serving daily and women with Neonatal Hepatitis should drink the smoothie as much as they can, depending to digestive toleration.
We don't recommend smoothie for newborn
Life style and dietary patter change are recommended.
