|At the Moringaling conference in the Philippines Dr Jed Fahey spoke about:
Sulforaphane effects on Helicobacter Pylori Infection.
Dr Fahey has previously done numerous experiments with Moringa.Helicobacter Pylori is recognized as a carcinogen by the World Health Organisation.
Infected individuals have 3- to 6-fold higher risk of gastric carcinoma. (STOMACH CANCER & LYMPHOMA)
Dr Fahey’s studies were carried out using Broccoli Sprouts. The focus was on Sulforaphane, is also found in Moringa.
What is Sulforaphane
|“Although Sulforaphane (from broccoli) and other isothiocyanates (including those from Moringa) are not direct antioxidants, they activate transcription of phase 2 cytoprotective genes, whose products provide chemically versatile, often catalytic, and prolonged indirect antioxidant protection.”
“We discovered that Sulforaphane is a highly effective antibiotic against all 48 strains of H. pylori tested It is equally effective against strains resistant to the 2 antibiotics most commonly used to treat H. pylori infections in people.”
A dietary method of controlling H. pylori infection with broccoli sprouts may have been uncovered, according to findings published in Cancer Prevention Research.
|Researchers from Japan and John’s Hopkins in Baltimore did a study with 50 Japanese adults infected with Helicobacter Pylori or H. pylori to eat either 2.5 oz. (70 g) of broccoli sprouts which contain Sulforaphane or alfalfa sprouts which do not contain Sulforaphane, every day for two months. (Sulforaphane is found in Moringa)
Those who ate broccoli sprouts saw a greater than 40% reduction in HpSA in their fecal matter. There was no change in HpSA among those who ate alfalfa sprouts.
