Blueberry and hepatitis C
The proanthocyanidin (PAC) found in blueberry leaves has shown a strong effect in blocking the replication of the Hepatitis C virus, has the greatest potency at inhibiting the expression of subgenomic HCV RNA. The scientific paper mentions that they reduce elevated liver enzymes which can help lower liver inflammation that is associated with many health problems.
Blueberry and Inflammation
Exploring further anti-inflammatory activity of blueberry, it was found that can reduce nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB), transcription factor is a key regulator of proinflammatory conditions. It can reduce 8-isoprostanes, this molecule reflects inflammatory status of body and peroxidation of lipid. It is effective in reducing of Monocyte Chemoattractive Protein-1 (MCP-1), one of several chemokines involved in inflammation process.
Development of cancer is associated with pro-inflammatory proteins are over-expressed and secreted by a wide variety of neoplasia (formation of tumors) such as liver, lung, gastric, pancreas. Thus, it can inhibit growth of several types of cancer cells.
