However, next to a health protective diet, identifying the chemical compounds of a healthy natural food product allows us to characterize those compounds that are potential candidates for a new drug, and manufacturing it artificially, we can then change its structure in several different ways to see if we can improve its effectiveness or gain new insights as to how to design a more effective drug of a similar type. Chronic liver diseases are the fifth most frequent cause of death in the European Union, mostly caused by chronic alcohol abuse or virus hepatitides.
Liver fibrosis, and ultimately liver cirrhosis, is the common end-stage of all chronic liver diseases. This review focusses on established components of Western food, such as Curry, Coffee or Chocolate, in terms of their hepatoprotective effects and discusses the biochemical background of the epidemiological observations.
It hopefully triggers both, motivation and curiosity, to open a new discussion on the future of the pharmacological treatment of chronic liver diseases and on the development of drugs based on natural compounds. Gressner OA. Chronic liver diseases are the fifth most frequent cause of death in the European Union, as they entail multiple risks, such as portal hypertension, ascites, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, hepatorenal and hepatopulmonary syndromes, hepatic encephalopathy and, of course, hepatocellular carcinoma HCC [1,2].
At the beginning of fibrogenesis stands a chronic inflammatory condition. But it is not the virus- or toxin-induced hepatocellular damage that primarily causes tissue-destruction and the formation of granulation tissue, but the activation of immunocompetent cells e. These mediators and the accumulation of potentially toxic free fatty acids generate highly reactive oxygen species ROS , which expose the hepatocyte to an oxidative stress, which, primarily via peroxidation of membrane lipids and DNA damage, leads to hepatocellular injury.
In the meantime, it comes to an activation of mesenchymal cells, resulting in an increased synthesis and interstitial deposition of extracellular matrix components. These mesenchymal cells, hepatic stellate cells HSC , also known as Ito cells, are pericytes found in the perisinusoidal space of the liver also known as the space of Disse.
The major phenotypic changes after activation include proliferation, contractility, fibrogenesis, matrix degradation, chemotaxis, retinoid loss, and white blood cell chemoattraction.
In Europe, most frequent causes of chronic liver failure are of nutritive-toxic origin: chronic alcohol abuse, followed by virus hepatitides. Hereditary causes such as hemochromatosis or Morbus Wilson, autoimmune processes such as primary biliary cirrhosis PBC , primary sclerosing cholangitis PSC or autoimmune hepatitis AIH , metabolic disorders, but also venous obstruction and liver congestion follow—at a distant third, however.
More than 50 percent of all patients with complicated liver cirrhosis die within the first 17 years following diagnosis, mostly from HCC. In more than 90 percent of all cases, the HCC develops within a cirrhotic liver. Therefore, attenuation of the fibrogenic process can significantly lower morbidity.
The daily food intake is the most important exchange of the organism with the environment. Ever since the introduction of the written word about 5, years ago, the application of medicinal herbs prepared in formulas has been documented.
It is only a couple of years that the potential medicinal effects could be convincingly proven by large scale clinical studies. This review presents the current knowledge on hepatoprotective properties of established food components such as curry, coffee, chocolate, garlic, and many more, and presents the history and folk use, the major chemical constituents and proven molecularbiological mechanisms responsible for the beneficial action of these foods in patients with chronic liver disease.
Artichoke: Cynara cardunculus Description: The cardoon Cynara cardunculus , also called the artichoke thistle, cardone, cardoni, carduni or cardi, is a thistle-like plant in the aster family Asteraceae. The wild cardoon is a stout herbaceous perennial plant growing up to 1. The flowers are violet-purple, produced in a large, globose, massively spined capitulum up to 6 cm diameter.
It is adapted to dry climates, occurring wild from Morocco and Portugal east to Libya and Greece and north to France and Croatia. There are two main cultivar groups, the cardoon Cynara cardunculus Cardoon Group , selected for edible leaf stems, and the artichoke Cynara cardunculus Scolymus Group , selected for edible flower buds. They differ from the wild plant in being larger up to 2 m tall , much less spiny, and with thicker leaf stems and larger flowers.
History and Folk Use: Artichokes were already known in ancient Egypt and the Romans considered them a delicacy for the upper class. With the decease of the Roman Empire, the artichoke almost entirely disappeared from the European continent and only returned in the 15th century, when Arabs brought the vegetable back to France, and it is believed that its name derives from the Arabian word al-harsuf.
From France, the artichoke was brought to America. The medico-pharmaceutical tradition of the artichoke could so far only be reconstructed in fragments. Whether the vegetable named skolymus mentioned in Dioskurides Materia medica is an artichoke, could not be finally proven. In the early middle ages, it was apparently known as a medicinal plant named cinara, as references in the Pharmacopoeia of the German abbey of Lorsch suggest, however, further evidences in other books of cloister medicine are entirely lacking.
In the 19th century, the medical value of the artichoke finally slided into obscurity. It was only in the mid-twentieth century, that the idea of the use of this vegetable as medicinal plant was revitalized, when scientists described a cholesterol-lowering effect of its major bioactive compound cynarin, therefore a suitability in the prevention of atherosclerosis.
Functional Components: The main phenolic constituents of the artichoke leaf extract are a variety of mono- and dicaffeoylquinic acids e. However, in vivo not only the genuine extract constituents but also their metabolites may contribute to efficacy. In addition, all parts of the plant contain sesquiterpene lactone cynaropecrin and inulin. A protective effect of cynarin was also observed for D-Galactosamine N D-GalN pretreated primary-cultured mouse and rat hepatocytes.
A study by Gebhardt et al demonstrated that the protective properties of artichoke extracts may mostly be attributed to an enhancement of the antioxidative capacity of the liver. Triggering oxidative stress through application of the two hydroperoxides tert-butylhydroperoxide t-BHP or cumene hydroperoxide to cultured primary rat hepatocytes, this group found that artichoke extracts did not affect the cellular level of the antioxidant glutathione GSH , but diminished the loss of total GSH and the cellular leakage of oxidized glutathione GSSG resulting from exposure to t-BHP.
However, chlorogenic acid and cynarin accounted for only part of the antioxidative principle of the extracts. Addition of artichoke extracts also prevented the hydroperoxide-induced increase of malondialdehyde MDA formation in a concentration-dependent manner when presented simultaneously or prior to the peroxides, as well as hepatocyte necrosis induced by the hydroperoxides. The effective concentrations were well below the cytotoxic levels of the extracts.
Next to its potent antioxidative properties, high-dose aqueous extracts from artichoke leaves were found to inhibit cholesterol biosynthesis in primary cultured rat hepatocytes in a dose-dependent manner, most likely through an inhibition at the level of hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA HMG-CoA -reductase. Screening of several known constituents of artichoke extracts revealed that cynaroside and particularly its aglycone luteolin were mainly responsible for inhibition.
As expected, artichoke extracts were also observed to significantly lower total serum cholesterol in the rat. Blueberries: Vaccinium spp. Description: Blueberries Vaccinium spp. All Vaccinium species grow as evergreen or deciduous, crawling, spread, standalone or climbing dwarf shrubs, bushes or trees. Characteristic of the species Vaccinium are its egg-shaped to round, fleshy berries, the actual blueberries. Blueberries are primarily native to the northern hemisphere alone 92 subspecies are found in China alone and 25 in North-America, whereas in tropical areas of Asia, Central- or Soutamerica it is only found in alpine areas.
Some subspecies are also found in Africa and on Madagascar. An overview on the hepatoprotective effects of artichoke constituents is given in figure 1. History and Folk Use: The use of blueberries as medicinal plant dates back as far as the 12th century, when German abbess Hildegard von Bingen mentiones their effectiveness in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders.
Proclaimed medicinal use by the Greek doctor Pedanios Dioskurides circa AD could not finally be confirmed. In the Middle Ages and thereafter, blueberries were widely used, especially as folk remedy against diarrhea and abdominal typhus, and again, much propagated by the German botanist and doctor Tabernaemontanus. The species Vaccinium was first named and classified by the Swedish botanist and physician Carl Linnaeus in his work Species Plantarum in .
Functional Components: Anthocyanins, natural pigments which are responsible for the blue colour of the berry, are one of the major flavonoid classes, present in almost all plant species. Due to their particular chemical structure, flavonoids, and in particular anthocyanins, are characterised by an electron deficiency, which makes them very reactive toward ROS, and are consequently considered to be powerful natural antioxidants[20,21].
Blueberries contain the following anthocyanins: malvidin 3-galactoside, delphinidin 3-galactoside, delphinidin 3-arabinoside, petunidin 3-galactoside, petunidin 3-arabinoside, malvidin 3-arabino-side, cyanidin 3-glucoside, cyanidin 3-galactoside, cyanidin 3-arabinoside, delphinidin 3-glucoside, malvidin 3-glucoside, peonidin 3-glucoside, peonidin 3-galactoside, peonidin 3-arabinoside, and peonidin 3-glucoside.
Another important compound of the blueberry is pterostilbene. Pterostilbene is a stilbenoid chemically related to resveratrol and belongs to the group of phytoalexins. It has proven antiinflammatory, antimicrobial in particular: antiviral , antineoplastic, and antioxidant actions by modulating target gene expression and enzyme activity [23,24]. Hepatoprotective Activity: Blueberry extract was shown to have preventive and protective effects both, on CCl4 -induced hepatic fibrosis by reducing hepatocyte injury and on lipid peroxidation, and on D-GalN induced acute hepatitis by reducing activities of pro-inflammatory cytokines, and by improvimg barrier functions and antioxidant activity.
Blueberry extracts have high antioxidant potential and are able to increase phase II enzyme expression and activities. In a study performed by Wang et al with male mice receiving oral blueberry extract it was shown that blueberry treatment significantly increased the expression of NF-E2-related factor-2 NRF2 , hemoxygenase-1, and NAD P H:quinone oxidoreductase NQO1 , which are important antioxidant components in the liver.
Also hepatic SOD superoxide dismutase activities were higher and MDA levels were lower in the mice receiving blueberry extract compared to the control group.
An inhibitory role of procyanidins extracted from the leaves of blueberry V. In line with these results, an interesting study from Japan suggested that the same procyanidins isolated from blueberry leaves could be of potential use as therapeutic agents in patients with hepatitis C virus HCV infection by inhibiting viral replication. The latter is indispensable for HCV subgenome expression in replicon cells. Blueberry products were furthermore found to increase hepatic detoxification and bile production, as hamsters fed high-fat diets supplemented with blueberry pomace byproducts showed an upregulation of hepatic cytochrome p CYP 7A1 expression, and CYP51, suggesting that both bile acid and cholesterol synthesis were increased, so were hepatic GST glutathione S-transferase activities, which are relevant for phase II detoxification processes.
A study published in Carcinogenesis presented data revealing that pterostilbene extracted from blueberries efficiently inhibited invasion, migration and metastasis of human hepatoma cells HepG2 cells by downregulating procarcinogenic O-tetradecanoylphorbol acetate TPA -induced induced matrix metalloproteinase MMP -9 gene expression. In addition, pterostilbene was shown to inhibit TPA-induced vascular endothelial growth factor, and NF-kappaB signaling.
Figure 2 gives a summary on the hepatoprotective mechanisms of the respective blueberry components. Common fig: Ficus carica Description: The Common fig Ficus carica is a deciduous tree belonging to the genus Ficus from the family Moraceae, native to southwest Asia and naturalized in the Mediterranean region and areas bordering from Pakistan to the Iberian Peninsula.
It is growing to heights of up to 6 m in Ficus carica is well known for its fragrant leaves that are large and lobed. The fruit is cm long, with a green skin, sometimes ripening towards purple or brown. History and Folk Use: The history of Ficus carica is long and fascinating. Not only that the Common Figure tree Ficus carica is the first plant cited in the Bible - in Genesis Adam and Eve are described to cover themselves with fig leaves when figuring out that they are naked — evidence of cultivation dates back as far as BC.
Nine subfossil figs of a parthenocarpic type from that time were found in the early Neolithic village Gilgal I in the Jordan Valley, just north of Jericho[34,35]. Beneficial effects of the fruit have been described ever since: Hezekiah, king of Judah between and BC, cured local infections by applying figs to the affected spot Isaiah xxxviii. Appropriately, figs were preferably consumed by Roman athletes and convalescents, thanks to their nutritional value and the easy digestibility.
Fig trees eventually reached North America in about [33, 36]. The Latin designation Ficus carica was introduced by Carl Linnaeus and first published in in his work Species plantarum[18,36].
Functional Components: Figs are one of the major plant sources of calcium and fiber, but are also rich in copper, manganese, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin K, relative to human needs. In one study, a portion of only gram of dried figs two medium sized figs produced a significant increase in plasma antioxidant capacity.
Figure 3 provides a schematic overview of the proposed hepatoprotective action of ficus carica leaf and fruit extracts. Hepatoprotective Activity: Despite its long history in medicinal use, only few reports have investigated the beneficial effects of components of the fig tree on liver pathophysiology so far.
Gond et al extracted dried leaves of Ficus carica using petroleum ether and applied the extract to rats with rifampicin induced toxic liver injury. They observed significant reversal of rifampicin dependent biochemical AST, ALT, total bilirubin , histological and functional changes in those rats receiving the extract. Another study investigated the effect of intraperitoneal applications of either Ficus carica leaf or Ficus carica fruit methanolic extract to rats with CCl4 -induced toxic liver injury.
Not just intraperitoneal, but also oral application of methanolic extract of Ficus carica leaves was evaluated for its hepatoprotective activity in CCl4-induced liver damaged rats by Krishna et al. Coffee: Coffea spp. Description: Coffee Coffea is a plant genus from the Rubiaceae family with about 90 species. Most famous are the mostly plantation grown Arabica Coffea arabica and Robusta Coffea canephora coffees.
