Alternative Medicine is Currently Offering a Blueberry Extract with a compound that fights chronic liver disease Infections caused by Hepatitis C. Lloyd Wright survived Hepatitis and has in fact been deemed free from a malady that doctors claim is incurable. The Blueberry Extract has a compound derived from blueberry leaves and is very powerful, Lloyd's extract is the only one on the market with 45% Proanthocyanidin
Los Angeles (PRWEB) November 1, 2009 -- Lloyd Wright, author of Triumph Over Hepatitis C and President of Alternative Medicine, Inc., is currently marketing the only Blueberry Extract which contains 45% Proanthocyanidin, a powerful compound derived from blueberry leaves which has proved a potent inhibitor of Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections. Wright, whose company offers a wide of variety of natural products to combat Hepatitis C, has a simple message for anyone taking other blueberry extracts: "If the blueberry extract you are taking does not say PROANTHOCYANIDIN on the label, it is not helping stop Hepatitis C. Our Blueberry extract is the only one the market today which contains 45% Proanthocyanidin."
The story of Lloyd Wright's Blueberry Extract is an interesting one. First, Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a major cause of chronic liver disease such as chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Then, while searching for new natural anti-HCV agents in agricultural products, we found a potent inhibitor of HCV RNA expression in extracts of blueberry leaves when examined in an HCV subgenomic replicon cell culture system.
This activity was observed in a methanol extract fraction of blueberry leaves and was purified by repeated fractionations in reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography. The final purified fraction showed a 63-fold increase in specific activity compared with the initial methanol extracts and was composed only of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Liquid chromatography/mass-ion trap-time of flight analysis and butanol-HCl hydrolysis analysis of the purified fraction revealed that the blueberry leaf-derived inhibitor was proanthocyanidin.
Furthermore, structural analysis using acid thiolysis indicated that the mean degree of polymerization of the purified proanthocyanidin was 7.7, consisting predominantly of epicatechin. Proanthocyanidin with a polymerization degree of 8 to 9 showed the greatest potency at inhibiting the expression of subgenomic HCV RNA. Purified proanthocyanidin showed dose-dependent inhibition of expression of the neomycin-resistant gene and the NS-3 protein gene in the HCV subgenome in replicon cells.
While characterizing the mechanism by which proanthocyanidin inhibited HCV subgenome expression, we found that heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein A2/B1 showed affinity to blueberry leaf-derived proanthocyanidin and was indispensable for HCV subgenome expression in replicon cells. These data suggest that proanthocyanidin isolated from blueberry leaves may have potential usefulness as an anti-HCV compound by inhibiting viral replication.
A series of medical problems began for Lloyd Wright in 1979 when, following a bad tractor accident, he was given a blood transfusion tainted with Hepatitis C. Thus began a decade long struggle with unexplained health problems, many involving excruciating pain and befuddled doctors. Then in 1993, through a quirk of fate, his blood was tested and it was revealed that Wright had Hepatitis C, which actually explained the chronic problems which plagued his every day life.
He was told to get his affairs in order, but Lloyd Wright was made of sterner stuff than to just roll over and die. He found a natural cure and, despite the derision of mainstream media, remains free of Hepatitis C while he helps scores of suffering people with his natural cures. He proved all the skeptics wrong and continues to live a healthy life, while also bringing a message of hope to people all over the world.
