Honey and Garlic Help Heal Burn Wounds

Euphorbia honey and garlic- Biological activity and burn wound recovery

A recent study has shown that a combination of euphorbia honey and garlic can help heal burn wounds. Euphorbia honey and garlic have antioxidant, microbial, and healing properties that have now been confirmed to be effective when treating wounds resulting from exposure to extreme heat. Combining natural ingredients has been common in traditional medicine for years, but now western medicine is beginning to look at more natural compounds to aid in recovery and treatment methods.

Recent Study Finds that Astragalin Prevents Tumor Growth

A Kaempferol-3-O-β-D-glucoside, Intervention Effect of Astragalin on Estradiol Metabolism

A recent study found that a flavonoid known as astragalin possesses a strong anti-tumor effect. High levels of a metabolite formed from the hormone estradiol have been found in tumor tissues leading researchers to search for an inhibitor to prevent estradiol from forming the metabolite. This study has found that astragalin, which is a naturally occurring substance found in a variety of plants and wine, has an effective antitumor mechanism that inhibits the formation of the metabolite.

Flavonoids Found in Buckwheat Hulls Have Antioxidant Properties

Flavonoids in common and Tartary Buckwheat hull extracts and antioxidant activity of the extracts against lipids in mayonnaise

A recent study has revealed that the various flavonoids in buckwheat hulls are a reliable source for antioxidant material. When a buckwheat hull extract was made and exposed to mayonnaise, the shelf-life of the mayonnaise was extended, likely related to the antioxidant properties. This study was able to determine the effectiveness of extracts from the common and Tartary Buckwheat hulls, as well as provide an efficient extraction method.

Researchers Look to CBD and THC for the Treatment of Chronic Pain

Efficacy and safety of cannabidiol followed by an open-label add-on of tetrahydrocannabinol for the treatment of chronic pain in patients with rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis: protocol for a multicentre, randomized, placebo-controlled study

Current researchers have proposed a study protocol that would expose any possible benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for the treatment of chronic pain in patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS). This new study hopes to identify how medical cannabis affects pain and cognitive function in RA and AS and provide evidence that cannabis-based pain medication is an alternative to opioids with fewer risks.

Organ Donors can Safely Consume Cannabis

Effects of Drug Abuse, Smoking and Alcohol on Donor Hearts and Lungs

A review article that discusses how drug use can affect donor organs has revealed that receiving organs, such as a heart or lungs, from a donor who has used cannabis does not add risk to the procedure. A careful assessment of any donor organ should still be conducted, but having a history of cannabis use does not prevent someone from safely donating.

Cognitive Function in Aging Cocaine Smokers is Marginally Lower than Controls

Cognitive function in aging cocaine smokers

A recently published study looking to expose the functional status of older drug users has found that most of their cognitive abilities are equal to their peers who have never smoked cocaine, except for a marginally lower verbal comprehension. Similar studies should continue in order to determine how chronic drug users will affect or challenge public health systems in the future.

Flavonoids May Provide Therapeutic Benefits for Type 2 Diabetes

A recent study has found that flavonoids isolated from Psoralea corylifolia are able to inhibit part of the insulin pathway.

Seeds of the P. corylifolia plant have been used in eastern medicine, primary in China, for years, and is now being further researched as flavonoids continue to intrigue researchers with their possible therapeutic benefits. The inhibitory activity found in this study provides evidence that flavonoids should be pursued as a potential treatment for Type-2 Diabetes.

Guanfacine reducing cannabis withdrawal symptoms?

Guanfacine decreases symptoms of cannabis withdrawal in daily cannabis smokers

A study performed on daily cannabis users with cannabis use disorder (CUD) found evidence for Guanfacine to reduce the irritability and disturbances to sleep, characteristic of cannabis withdrawal. It is potentially a viable, improved alternative to Lofexidine, another treatment for CUD which happens to result in some adverse effects, including drowsiness, dizziness, and altered food intake. However, beyond these effects, while Lofexidine reduced cannabis self-administration following abstinence, Guanfacine did not in this study. Regardless, further research on the therapeutic effects of Guanfacine may be worthwhile and could help reduce cannabis cravings following withdrawal.
