Thyme oil can inhibit COX2 and suppress inflammation - 1 views

    "ScienceDaily (Jan. 13, 2010) - For those who do not drink, researchers have found that six essential oils -from thyme, clove, rose, eucalyptus, fennel and bergamot -- can suppress the inflammatory COX-2 enzyme, in a manner similar to resveratrol, the chemical linked with the health benefits of red wine. They also identified that the chemical carvacrol was primarily responsible for this suppressive activity."

Boswellic acid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

    Boswellic acids are a series of pentacyclic triterpene molecules which are produced by plants in the genus Boswellia. Like many other terpenes, boswellic acids appear in the resin of the plant which exudes them; it is estimated that they make up 30% of the resin of Boswellia serrata

Health Benefits of Ursolic Acid - 0 views

    Ursolic acid, a natural pentacyclic triterpenoid carboxylic
    acid, is the major component of some traditional medicine
    herbs and is well known to possess a wide range of
    biological functions, such as antioxidative,
    anti-inflammatory, antihyperlipidemic and anticancer
    activities, that are able to counteract endogenous and
    exogenous biological stimuli.

    Ursolic acid has been noted for their antitumor-promotion
    activities. Ursolic acid is capable of inducing apoptosis in
    tumor cells on one side and to prevent malignant
    transformation of normal cells on the other side. It also
    interferes with numerous enzymes, including the ones
    serving directly to DNA synthesis

Fish oil, resolvin, inflammation, and cardiovascular disease - Medscape (requires free ... - 0 views

    March 7, 2005
    Boston, MA - The anti-inflammatory effect of fish oils appears to be due to a powerful anti-inflammatory compound called resolvin (resolution-phase interaction product) E1, which is produced from eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), Dr Makoto Arita (Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA) and colleagues report in the March 7, 2005 issue of the Journal of Experimental Medicine [1]. Arita writes, "At nanomolar levels, resolvin E1 dramatically reduced dermal inflammation, peritonitis, dendritic cell migration, and interleukin (IL)-12 production.
