Avocado Seeds Can Be Used to Reduce Inflammation
A new study from Penn State University suggests that an extract from avocado seeds can be used for reducing inflammation caused by white cells.
To check their hypothesis, a team of researchers executed laboratory-based experiments which included cell cultures and enzymes that play significant roles in the normal immune response and the reactions occurring in inflammatory diseases.
The analysis of the experiment results showed that the compounds in avocado seeds inhibited the production of pro-inflammatory proteins by these immune cells.
One of the researchers Joshua Lambert says: “The level of activity that we see from the extract is very good. We saw inhibitory activity at concentrations in the low microgram-per-millilitre range, which is an acceptable amount of activity to justify further studies.”
