A cytokine is a small protein that helps cells communicate with each other. Cytokines are involved in a wide range of biological processes, including inflammation, immunity, and cell growth.
- Study Finds Liposomal Berberine Improves Glucose, Lipids, and Inflammation in Rats“In an animal model of type 2 diabetes, the intragastric delivery of Lip-BBR via liposomes exhibited remarkable protective effects against hepatic tissue damage, steatosis, inflammation, insulin resistance, and hepatocellular enzyme imbalance.”
- Study Shows NMN Protects Against Lung Damage in MiceOral administration of NMN (500 mg/kg) effectively preserved NAD+ tissue and plasma levels during PM exposure and protected against pulmonary fibrosis in mice.
- Coenzyme Q10 in Aging, Heart Health, and FertilityCoQ10 may extend its potential benefits beyond its traditional role in energy production. Emerging research suggests it could provide cardioprotective effects and reduce migraine symptoms. Moreover, its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties have shown promise in addressing age-related disorders and various diseases.
- Palmitoylethanolamide (P.E.A.) Reduces Inflammation and Anxiety in Obese MiceThis study showed that P.E.A. protected mice from HFD-induced anxiety-like behavior and inflammation. “As our data demonstrated, the blunted synthesis of pro-inflammatory cytokines by PEA can stop this vicious cycle among brain immune cells, limiting the progression of enduring neuroinflammation.”
