Alopecia, a common, distressing occurrence in humans also occurs in rodents. Our main objective in this study was to examine the effects of a mixture of nutrients containing ascorbic acid, lysine, proline and green tea extract on hair growth in nude mice, since they are genetically predisposed to pattern balding. Prior to testing the nutrients on nude mice, we studied the effect of NM by diet and topical application on hair growth in shaved dorsal region of Swiss mice. Following one week of isolation, dorsal hairs were shaved with an electric shaver (3 x 2 cm) and removed from shaved area with PBS.

Micronutrients in mitigating the adverse health effects of air pollution

W. Sumera

Journal of Cellular Medicine and Natural Health, Sept 2017


Air pollution is a major environmental risk to human health and wellbeing. According to WHO reports in 2012, ambient (outdoor) and indoor air pollution was linked to seven million premature deaths worldwide. Most of them were attributed to cardiovascular diseases (stroke and ischemic heart disease), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, and acute lower respiratory infections in children. Yet 92% of the world population lives in places that exceed the WHO air quality guidelines. On the other hand, laboratory and clinical studies indicate that a nutritious diet and/or intake of micronutrients with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifying properties may ameliorate many harmful health effects caused by polluted air.

This review is composed of two parts: Part I addresses cellular and health aspects associated with human exposure to polluted air and Part II (to be published in the next edition of our Journal) will discuss potential biological mechanisms underlying the protective effects of vitamins B, C, and E, omega-3 fatty acids, and sulforaphane against air pollutants, as demonstrated in human studies.

Abnormal uterine myometrial contractility causes preterm delivery, contributing to perinatal morbidity and mortality. Disturbances in hormonal regulation and inflammation-related processes have been attributed a role in the pathophysiological mechanisms of uterine contractility. We investigated the effects of natural nutrients on uterine tissue contractility in vitro.

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by thickened, silvery scaled patches. There is currently no cure and treatments only attempt to reduce the severity of symptoms. This study reports the case of a 36 year old female who presented to the clinic with severe psoriasis and had been treated with topical steroid cream for the past 14 years.

The role of PEG-coated gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) on the anti-proliferative effect of Specific Nutrient Synergy (SNS) on HTLV-1 infected (C91-PL and HuT-102) and non-infected (CEM and Jurkat) malignant T-lymphocytes cells, was investigated. When PEG-coated Au NPs (of different molecular weights) were added alone, there was no effect on either viability or proliferation of the leukemic cell lines studied.
