This study found an extract of Carica papaya seeds had nephroprotective
(kidney protecting) effects against oxidative stress, though being an animal study there isn't as much evidence here as for the other papaya seeds health benefits.
officinale extract might be responsible for the antioxidant and nephroprotective
It has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-allergic, antioxidant, antidiabetic, neuroprotective, anticancer, nephroprotective
, anti-angiogenic, antihypertensive and anti-inflammatory activity.
Another commonly used nephroprotective
herb renowned of antioxidant effects is green tea (Camellia sinensis)12.
(15) Since our study was limited to 1 year of allopurinol exposure, it is unlikely that our results were confounded by nephroprotective
Other previous studies have also shown a strong correlation between nephroprotective
effects of flavonoidrich plant extracts against nephrotoxicity induced in experimental rat model, possibly mediated via their high antioxidant content and free-radical scavenging properties (37-38).
precatorius seeds are also reported to have anticancer, (19) antifertility, (4) antitumor, antispermatogenic, antibacterial, (20,21) antidiabetic, (22) antioxidant, (23) nephroprotective
, (24) antiarthritic, (25) antimicrobial, (19) and antimalarial activities.
effect of vitamin C and Nigella sativa oil on gentamicin-associated nephrotoxicity in rabbits.
effect of gelsemine against cisplatin-induced toxicity is mediated via attenuation of oxidative stress.
effect was observed in the rats treated with CM @ 40ml/kg with less hemorrhages and tubular degeneration and nearly normal glomerular structure (Figure 3).
