Washington, Oct 04 ( ANI ): A component of grapefruit and other citrus fruits like naringenin, blocks the formation of kidney cysts, a new study has revealed.
Last but not least, the scientists note, nobiletin is 10 times more potent than naringenin, the natural flavonoid found in grapefruit, which has similar protective effects.
Specifically, they evaluated the antimicrobial effects of a novel flavonoid, 7-O-butyl naringenin, on several strains of H.
A collaboration between Harvard and Hebrew universities also found that naringenin, a compound found in grapefruit, can be used in supplements that reduce the body's absorption of fat and sugar and can therefore treat conditions such as diabetes and hypermetabolism.
Daidzein, genistein, formononetin, biochanin A and naringenin were estrogenic in the alkaline phosphatase assay, with all of these except formononetin bound to one or both ERs (Booth 2006).
