New study by Dr. Nader Abraham discusses potential role of HO-1 regulation via natural ingredients
The study looks into the pivotal role of antivirals and natural ingredients—such as TriNutra’s ThymoQuin™—to help prevent cytokine storms. Increased production of cytokines and reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the inflammatory response results in the competitive inhibition of heme oxygenase (HO-1) and subsequent loss of cytoprotection. Increasing HO-1 provides additional antioxidant activity and decreases the amount of heme content in the kidney.
