GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE COMPONENTS:
Artemisia Annua Extract: Artemisia Annua is a plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family, also commonly called sweet wormwood or Chinese wormwood. It is believed to be native to Asia although today it can be found in various regions around the planet including Europe, the United States or Canada. Artemis Annua has the following medicinal properties: It is immunoregulatory, strengthening the animal's defenses. Helps regulate the nervous system, relieves irritability and anxiety. Improves physical and mental fatigue. Stimulates the function of the kidneys and the gallbladder. Contains terpenoids, flavonoids, phenolic acids and coumarins is of special interest for the treatment of a variety of pathologies. It acts as antioxidants, stimulating the immune system and stimulating appetite.
Milk Thistle Extract (Silybum marianum): it is a water-dispersible brownish amorphous powder, obtained from the Milk Thistle plant. Its main component is Silymarin (> 80%), a complex of flavonoids such as silybin, silicristin and silidianin that act as antioxidants and protectors of liver cells. It also increases endogenous antioxidant capacity by increasing the concentration of glutathione and superoxide dismutase activity. Silymarin has antimetastatic, antiangiogenic and anti-inflammatory activity, inhibits cell proliferation and induces apoptosis.
Curcumin (Curcuma longa): Turmeric, also called Indian sulfur, is a highly appreciated plant because it offers great gastronomic versatility and is attributed with medicinal properties against cancer, high cholesterol or osteoarthritis, among other diseases. It is native to southwestern India and belongs to the same family as ginger. By grating and drying its rhizome - a stem that grows below the ground and horizontally - a yellow or orange powder is obtained that contains between 2 and 5% curcumin, a compound to which the health benefits are attributed. Curcumin reduces, in the words of Robles, “the production of mediators of inflammation and free radicals, which makes it popularly attributed antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that would have beneficial effects in the treatment of diseases such as osteoarthritis, skin diseases, gastric ulcers, diabetes and even cancer”. Turmeric is a substance found in the species of the same name. Turmeric has long been used in Asian medicine to treat a variety of diseases. Turmeric is thought to have antioxidant properties, which means it can reduce swelling and inflammation. It is being explored as an adjunct to cancer treatment in part because inflammation appears to play a role in cancer. Laboratory and animal research suggests that turmeric may be helpful in treating cancer, slowing its spread, making chemotherapy more effective, and protecting healthy cells from radiation therapy damage.
Green Tea Extract (Camellia sinensis): Camellia (Camellia sinensis) is a herbaceous plant native to China and Southeast Asia. It is the most used plant for the preparation of infusions, and we usually refer to it as "green tea". Tea is the most consumed beverage in the world; therefore, it is not surprising that this plant can be found practically in any region of the world. It generally grows best in areas with a tropical or subtropical climate. It is one of the most used plants in traditional Chinese medicine. Its most common mode of use is as tea or infusion, although there are other types of preparations. There are two varieties that are currently used, Camellia Siennsis Sinensis, called Chinese tea; and Camellia Sinensis Assamica, called Indian tea. Camellia sinensis is a perennial plant that can grow into a tree, but it is usually kept in the form of a shrub to facilitate the harvest of its leaves and shoots. It grows in regions with a tropical and subtropical climate (hot and humid), but it also adapts to other climatic conditions with harsh winters. It helps fight cardiovascular diseases due to its antioxidant content. Due to the flavonoids it presents, it is a natural anti-inflammatory. It contains minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and fluoride. It has high antioxidant power due to its high content of polyphenols. With immunomodulatory and anticancer properties, it is capable of inhibiting proliferation, metastasis, angiogenesis and inducing apoptosis. It features an antioxidant called catechin, known for its strengthening effect on the immune system that lowers cholesterol, prevents arthritis, and helps fight cancer.
Graviola (Annona muricata) Extract: Graviola, or annona muricata, is an evergreen tree found in the rainforests of Central and South America, usually around 5 to 7 meters tall. In modern times, graviola extracts are sometimes used to aid cancer treatment, especially in South American countries. Graviola has an extremely wide range of medicinal properties, which are distributed in the different parts of the plant. Cancer-Fighting Properties of Graviola: One study noted that certain phytochemicals within graviola leaves are 100 times more toxic to cancer cells than a common chemotherapy drug: the amonaceous acetogenins in graviola leaves and fruit. they are effective in killing cancer cells that are resistant to chemotherapy agents and show strong potential as a cancer treatment. Some of the acetogenins in graviola extract were found to be more potent than the chemotherapy anticancer drug (Adriamycin), and therefore may have chemotherapeutic potential, especially with regard to multi-drug resistant tumors. It has antioxidant properties, stimulating the immune system; potentiates the cytotoxic effect in cancer patients under chemotherapy treatment.
Mistletoe Extract (Viscum album): Viscum album, commonly called white mistletoe, garter or visco, is a semi-parasitic plant belonging to the Santataceae family. It is native to Europe and western and southern Asia, also to America. The plant has medicinal properties, its active substance is viscotoxin. It is diuretic and hypotensive, although at high doses it is toxic. The specific galactose lectin is also extracted from this plant and achieves an improvement in the quality of life of patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy, since it increases the response of the immune system and the levels of endorphin in plasma B. Improves quality life of patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy, since it increases the response of the immune system and the levels of endorphin of plasma B.
There is sufficient scientific evidence accumulated over years on its effectiveness, especially in improving the quality of life of patients with advanced cancer disease, and more recently, more evidence of the immunomodulatory and antitumor mechanisms of action: stimulation of dendritic cell maturation (DC) fundamental in antitumor immune activation, increased release of certain cytokines such as INF gamma, essential for the activation of CD4 lymphocytes active against tumor cells, modification of the environment of immunosuppressive cytokines of the tumor microenvironment, and stimulation of apoptosis and death of tumor cells by direct cytotoxicity of viscotoxins. In addition, the stimulation of the release of hyopthalamic beta endorphins by mistletoe produces an effect of improvement of the general state, reduces fatigue and cancer pain that translates into a better quality of life self-objectified by the patients. A Phase III clinical study in patients with advanced stage pancreatic cancer has recently been published in which the administration of viscum album has shown a significant increase in survival compared to standard supportive treatment in patients not subject to chemotherapy treatment. Mistletoe Therapy (Viscum Album) favors and complements chemotherapy and radiotherapy before and after this treatment. Mistletoe is a modulator of the immune system, it generates a greater tolerance to the effect of treatments, pain, mood and a longer survival from disease. It helps to improve the quality of life and the amount of leukocytes (white blood cells) and red blood cells (red blood cells), also promoting liver function and reducing the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid): Sodium ascorbate is a sodium salt of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) with a molecular formula: C6H7NaO6. It is used in the food industry for its antiseptic, antioxidant, and preservative functions. Vitamin C is useful in the prevention and treatment of cancer. It acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing free radicals, and as an immunomodulator. It improves the activity of leukocytes and protects them from oxidative damage derived from their cytolytic activity. Vitamin C is also essential in the formation of collagen: together with proline and lysine, it strengthens the extracellular matrix, thus hindering the invasion of tumor cells into the surrounding tissues.
Zinc Gluconate: Zinc gluconate is the salt that is formed by the combination of zinc with gluconic acid and has the chemical formula C12H22O14Zn. Zinc gluconate is used as a way to supply zinc due to its good assimilation, since zinc gluconate is an organic complex that is easier to absorb than elemental zinc. Zinc gluconate is one of the most popular and widely used forms of dietary zinc and is made from an industrial manufacturing process in which glucose is fermented. Among the functions of zinc, its antioxidant capacity stands out, it intervenes in protein synthesis, cell growth or wound healing. Properties and uses: Zinc is an essential element of nutrition, appearing in the form of traces in a large number of foods. It is a constituent of numerous enzyme systems, found in all tissues. Zinc is incompletely absorbed from the digestive tract, with a bioavailability of 20-30%. It is distributed mainly in bone, muscle, skin, and prostatic fluid. It is excreted mainly through feces. It is used as a supplement in cases of zinc deficiency (for example, malabsorption syndrome, in conditions with high weight loss, and acrodermatitis enteropathica), usually administered orally. Zinc deficiencies have been observed to be very common in cancer patients and is in fact a good indicator of the nutritional status of the patient. Zinc improves the functions of cellular immunity as well as the activity of killer cells. It acts as an antioxidant, induces anti-inflammatory cytokines and favors apoptosis of malignant cells. It is a zinc chelated with EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid).
