The Japanese name of Euglena is “Midorimushi”. Euglena is a small organism of about 0.05 mm in length and thus cannot be clearly observed without a microscope. Euglena is a unique source of health food with characteristics of both plants and animals.read more
The wild watermelon is originated from Kalahari desert and can adapt to drought and excess light conditions. This is thought to have acquired a mechanism to protect cells from severe environmental stresses in evolutionary process.read more
Chlorella is a famous source of health food. It contains plenty of nutrients in small cells whose diameters range from 2 to 10 μm, which is about half the size of human red blood cells.read more
The addition of wild watermelon juice to melanin-producing cells (mouse melanoma cells) suppressed melanin production by the cells. This result suggests that wild watermelon juice might be effective in suppressing the occurrence of spots and dullness resulting from melanin production.
Hypertensive rats were given either water or wild watermelon juice, and their blood pressure was measured 4 and 8 hours later. The blood pressure of rats that were given wild watermelon juice decreased significantly, suggesting that wild watermelon juice might be effective in treating hypertension.
The growth of human skin fibroblasts was enhanced by the addition of wild watermelon juice to the culture medium, suggesting that wild watermelon juice activates skin fibroblasts. This effect might prevent wrinkle formation and the decline in skin fitness.
Growth of human epidermal keratinocytes was enhanced by the addition of wild watermelon juice, suggesting the possibility that wild watermelon juice activates human epidermal keratinocytes and stimulates their metabolism.
Canine kidney cells infected with influenza virus were incubated in a medium containing wild watermelon juice at different concentrations. Influenza v
Wild watermelon can accumulate citrulline, a type of amino acid, which is effective in eliminating highly oxidative reactive oxygen named hydroxyl radWild watermelon can accumulate citrulline, a type of amino acid that is effective in eliminating hydroxyl radical, a highly oxidative reactive oxygen species. It has been demonstrated that the antioxidative activity of wild watermelon juice, i.e. its ability to prevent salicylic acid oxidationinduced by hydroxyl radicals, exceeds that of citrulline alone. This finding implies that wild watermelon contains, in addition to citrulline, another antioxidative compound that warrants further investigation.
