Additional Benefits on Body Functions

Serum Lipids – Cholesterol Lowering
Researchers at the Institute of Biochemistry and Food Chemistry, Graz University of Technology in Austria evaluated the potential effects of elderberry extract on fasting and postprandial risk profiles. Dr. Murkovic found that anthocyanins from elderberry (Sambucus nigra) showed a positive total cholesterol lowering effect in a 2-week human study. They also […]

Anti-Cancer Implications

In vitro Effects on Cancer Cells
Researchers at King’s College London examined Artemis’ standardized extracts—Bilberry, Chokeberry, and Elderberry on malignant human brain tumor cell lines in vitro. Using time-lapse video recording and flow cytometry they found increased cell death with chokeberry and bilberry extracts and down-regulation of MMP-9 secretion with the chokeberry extract. They proposed that […]

Anti-Viral Implications

A study out of Justus-Liebig University in Geissen, Germany investigated the antibacterial activity of the standardized elderberry extract on liquid-cultured strains of Streptococcus pyogenes and group C and G Streptococci, and the bacterium Branhamella catarrhalis, which often cause infections of the upper respiratory tract. An elderberry extract concentration of 10% inhibited the bacterial growth by […]

Stimulation of Immune Response

Proliferation Enhancement of T lymphocytes and Anti-Aging Implications
Researchers at Indiana-Purdue University in Fort Wayne, Indiana conducted proliferation assays to measure increased lymphocyte proliferation, which is indicative of a heightened immune response. The mitogen, Concanavalin A (ConA), was incorporated to focus specifically on the stimulation of the proliferation of T lymphocytes. The results indicated a dose-dependent, […]

Antioxidant Activity and its Role in Disease Prevention

Anthocyanins have often been studied for their antioxidant capabilities and resulting health benefits. Artemis International’s products have been standardized to high anthocyanin levels with significant antioxidant capacity, as indicated by the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) test conducted through Brunswick Laboratories. The ORAC test measures the antioxidant activity of a substance by assessing its ability […]

Bioavailability of Anthocyanins

Anthocyanins are flavonoid glycosides that are responsible for the red, blue, and purple colors of ripe fruit and have been shown to possess considerable antioxidant abilities. In an effort to discover information about the bioavailability of these anthocyanins, researchers at the USDA at Tufts, using Artemis’ standardized elderberry extract, found that anthocyanins are absorbed and […]

Effect of Supplementation with Chokeberry Juice on the Inflammatory Status and Markers of Iron Metabolism in Rowers

AbstractBackgroundThe aim of this study was to analyze the effect of supplementation with chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa) juice on the levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, hepcidin, and selected markers of iron metabolism in rowers subjected to exhaustive exercise.MethodsThis double-blind study included 19 members of the Polish Rowing Team. The subjects were randomly assigned to the supplemented group […]
