Sugarcane juice was collected from the local vendor and its physico-chemical properties like pH, brix, acidity, vitamin C and microbial count were measured by standard methods. Sugarcane juice beverage samples were prepared by pasteurizing the juice at different temperatures. Pasteurization were done of eight conical flasks which contain 100 ml of sugarcane(More)
Epidemiological evidence indicates several health benefits of the consumption of broccoli, especially related to chemoprevention. Because broccoli contains high amounts of selenium and glucosinolates (particularly glucoraphanin and isothiocyanate sulforaphane), which can produce redox-regulated cardioprotective protein thioredoxin (Trx), it was reasoned(More)
Recently, broccoli, a vegetable of the Brassica family, has been found to protect the myocardium from ischaemic reperfusion injury through the redox signalling of sulphoraphane, which is being formed from glucosinolate present in this vegetable. Since cooked broccoli loses most of its glucosinolate, we assumed that fresh broccoli could be a superior(More)
Recent studies indicated the presence of cholesterol oxides in biological tissues such as heart under pathophysiological conditions. Currently, no suitable method is available to separate and quantitate these oxides in biological tissues. This study was undertaken to develop a method suitable for the quantification of cholesterol oxides in heart. Since(More)
