, a compound in garlic, was found to improve the health of gut bacteria and boosted memory in ageing mice, a possible pointer to an eventual breakthrough for humans.University professor Jonathan Kotler is an American and lives in California, but is a fan of the London football club Fulham.
A natural compound in garlic called allyl sulfide
can restore intestinal bacteria linked with cognitive health in the elderly.
(A35801), allyl disulfide (A317691), and ketoconazole (K1003) were purchased from Sigma-Aldrich Korea, LTD.
30 compounds from volatiles compounds of black onion were identified, which accounted for 52.63% of all compounds and 81.69% of the total peak areas; these components included 19 sulfur-containing volatiles compounds, such as diallyl sulfide, methyl allyl sulfide
, 3-hydroxysulfolane, 2,4dimethylthiophene, 2-methoxythiophene, 1,4-dithiane, and 1,3-dithiane .
Interest in garlic is associated with various substances such as quercetin, allixin, allcin, allinin and allyl sulfides
, which are suggested to have an inhibitory effect on prostate, colon, bladder and stomach cancer.
Suitable addition-fragmentation groups include conventional reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) agents such as allyl sulfides
, dithiocarbamates, trithiocarbonates, and thiuram disulfides.
Containing numerous organisulphide compounds, such as allyl sulfides
and alkyl sulfoxides, chives have a beneficial effect on the circulatory system, acting upon it by lowering blood pressure.
from garlic suppress the in vitro proliferation of human A549 lung tumor cells.
, found in onions, garlic and leeks, as well as phenolic acids found in tomatoes, citrus and whole grains, help the body's enzymes block carcinogens in the body--a first-line defense.
In the presence of selenium and vitamin A, allyl sulfides
arrest carcinogenic activity far more effectively than they do in isolation, we're told.
