Health and Medical Benefits of Blackberry Extract

AAPS researchers at the University of Kentucky and Four Tigers LLC are developing three new products using extracts from the State Fruit of Kentucky -- the blackberry. A study being presented for the first time at the AAPS Annual Meeting and Exposition found that blackberry extracts have high antioxidant properties and the potential to treat cancer and other inflammatory diseases. This research led to the development of three new medical products: a chewing gum to prevent gingivitis and periodontal disease; a topical cream for UV-induced skin damage; and a pill for various inflammatory diseases of the GI tract, such as irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's disease.

According to a paper published by Halvorsen and colleagues in 2006 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, blackberries have the highest antioxidant activity of 1113 fruits, nuts, seeds or vegetables tested.

"Some might think that eating handfuls of blackberries will produce the same results as these novel products, but that is not the case," said Russell Mumper, Ph.D., AAPS Expert and Chief Scientific Officer of Four Tigers. "While eating blackberries is healthful, the body does not absorb them well. You've got to eat a lot of berries to give you an equivalent dose to what is found in formulated and concentrated blackberry extract."

This research provides medical alternatives for the millions of Americans living with gingivitis, skin cancer and inflammatory diseases.
