Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) June 5, 2008
After almost a decade of independent research and review of medical and clinical studies conducted by accredited and distinguished Universities and Institutions on three continents, renowned epidemiologist Dr. Vijaya Nair has presented compelling evidence that the consumption of fermented whole soy products and spices such as curcumin can result in significant improvement in the quality of life of individuals with compromised immunity. For easy reference, Dr. Nair has placed her findings, including the most salient studies, on the JIVA web site.
Dr. Nair was recently invited to present her conclusions at the International Symposium on Translational Cancer Research held near Mumbai, India. Intrigued by the presentation made by Dr. Nair, scientists and academicians from throughout the world have expressed interest in the development of a nutraceutical product line, marketed under the name of JIVA, that has been launched by Dr. Nair's company, "Essence of Life."
Studies involving the beneficial effects of curcumin, fermented soy and other natural herbs and spices are now underway at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, as well as in other institutions in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
The National Institute of Health has funded dozens of research studies over the past several years on curcumin and its positive effects on inflammation based diseases that include cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, autoimmune diseases, arthritis, neurological disease, pulmonary disease, and others. Many of these studies are also found on the JIVA website.
