Cardamom oil | Liver protector & life extender?

The day before yesterday we reported on a human study from Iran in which supplementation with karadamom oil in people with fatty liver improved the glucose and cholesterol balance, and also increased the irisin level. Very nice, but what did cardamom oil actually do with the hepatological health of the subjects?


Cardamom oil | Liver protector & life extender?


Study
The day before yesterday's post was based on a 2019 publication in BMC Complementary Medicine and Therapies, today's on a 2018 article in Nutrition & Metabolism. Data from both studies come from the same experiment.

You can read more about the experimental design and the doses used here.

Results
During the 3 months of the experiment, fatty liver disease in the placebo group disappeared completely in 5 percent of the subjects. This was 42 percent in the experimental group.

Cardamom oil supplementation reduced the concentration of the liver enzyme ALT by nearly 30 percent. This indicates that the liver started to function better.

In the experimental group, inflammatory markers such as CRP and TNF-alpha decreased by about thirty to forty percent, respectively. At the same time, the concentration of the longevity enzyme SIRT1 rose by 31 percent.


Cardamom oil | Liver protector & life extender?


Conclusion
Cardamom oil is probably more than a liver protector. A supplement that lowers the LDL level, increases the HDL level and insulin sensitivity, lowers the concentration of CRP and TNF-alpha and also raises the activity of SIRT1 and irisin may also be a supplement that extends life.

The longevity top 3: rosmarinic acid, pomegranate and curcumin
A large number of phyochemicals actually made the lab animal live longer. Which of all the substances tested works best?

Xanthohumol, a life extender in hops and beer
This is suggested by an animal study published by researchers at Ubon Ratchathani Rajabhat University in Thailand in Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology, Part C.

Another study in which glucosamine reduces mortality risk...
This one comes from Dana King and Jun Xiang of West Virginia University.
