Features Celery seed has traditionally been used to assist in the relief of symptoms of joint pain. Celery has been found to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. Gout is a type of arthritis caused by an increased concentration of uric acid. Uric acid is the end product of purine metabolism. Foods high in purines therefore contribute to the body's production of uric acid. These foods include organ meats (eg. liver, kidneys, brains, heart, lambs fry), prawns, lobster, oysters, salami, pate, sardines and anchovies. From a traditional naturopathic perspective accumulation of waste substances in the body can contribute to arthritis and rheumatism. Celery stimulates the enzyme glutathione-S-transferase which helps clear accumulated toxic substances from the body.
Garlic contains sulphur compounds which are concentrated in the bulb. These sulphur compounds include alliin, a sulphur-containing amino acid. Alliin is responsible for many of the beneficial actions of garlic. Alliin is converted by enzymes naturally occurring in garlic to the active compound allicin, when garlic is cut, crushed or chewed. Allicin is responsible for the characteristic smell of garlic, and the biological activity of garlic lies in its ability to produce allicin.
Lecithin is an important component of all cells in the body and aids in the metabolism of fats, allowing them to be used by the cells of the body. With other lipids, lecithin is important for maintaining the structural integrity of cell membranes, which regulate the passage of nutrients into and out of the cells. As part of the cell membrane it facilitates communication between the cells, which is important for cell growth, regulation and function. Blackmores Lecithin 1200 is derived from soya beans.
