SUPER FRUIT HIMALYAN BERRY IS A BOON FOR PSORIASIS
Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin disease and approximately 125 million people worldwide are affected by this complex problem. In Psoriasis some parts of the skin cells multiply very fast, up to 10 times faster than normal skin cells. Once these abnormal cells reach the surface and die, there is an appearance of raised, red plaques covered with white scales. Usually these plaques occur in the scalp, elbows and knees and are characterized by different plaques shielded with visible silvery scales in different areas of the skin.
Physical appearance of the patches in the skin is the biggest curse of this disease and is very frustrating. It also causes emotional effects on the patient which can be worse than physical effects as sometime people treat you in a different way due to lack of awareness though it is not a contagious disease. Unfortunately, this may lead to stress and a feeling of exclusion, which can worsen psoriasis. Along with its treatment, doctors might have to prescribes medication to cope with the depression. It is important to remember that there are ways to manage and treat a psoriasis flare up. It may seem as if one's quality of life has diminished, but there are many organizations that offer support to psoriasis patients. Various efficient allopathic treatments are available but come with side effects and at a higher cost. Thus, it is very important explore herbal and natural treatments for psoriasis without any side effects.

New study shows therapy for psoriasis can reduce heart plaque
Hindustan Times | Friday, Apr 27, 2018 New Delhi
The therapy for psoriasis can reduce heart plaque, a new research has found. It is the first-in-human observational study demonstrating that treating remote inflammation in the body can modulate coronary disease. New study shows that common therapy options for psoriasis (PSO)-a chronic inflammatory skin disease-can help reduce coronary plaque.
According to a study conducted by the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions, not only do the psoriasis treatments reduce the volume of the plaque, but also the plaque becomes less inflammatory over time harbouring fewer characteristics prone to rupture and causes heart attack. Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle. When plaque builds up in the arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis. The build-up of plaque occurs over many years.
It is the first-in-human observational study demonstrating that treating remote inflammation in the body can modulate coronary disease. Psoriasis is associated with an accelerated risk of myocardial infarction and has increased risk for atherogenesis, which is the development of plaque within the walls of blood vessels.
For the first time, recent evidence demonstrated a significant reduction in adverse cardiovascular events targeting interleukin-1 beta (IL1B), a cytokine that is central to the inflammatory response. The authors worked to identify if treatment of the inflammatory skin disease potentially affected coronary plaque. Anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) agents are commonly used, biologic, and FDA-approved immunomodulatory treatment options for PSO.
“To see a reduction in coronary plaque after just one year of biologic therapy alone is incredible and very assuring. It’s the first time we’re seeing treatment of a skin disease with biologic therapy have an impact specifically on the plaque in the coronary,” said Nehal N. Mehta, the Principal Investigator of the study.
“Our study results further emphasize the importance of patients maintaining and treating psoriasis to decrease the risks of adverse cardiovascular events occurring. This also opens the door for us to look at other disease states and see how anti-inflammatory therapy options could impact coronary plaque over time.”
The study findings appear in the journal Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions.
Activity of The Month
The team of Preserva Wellness, including scientists, formulation experts and the quality control in-charge visited Jaipur from 16th to 18th April, 2018 for the production of Aloe Vera pulp based juices. A total of 11 different Aloe Vera juices were prepared in combination with different herbs and fruit for varying health benefits. Preserva Wellness has also introduced 3 new juices namely, Celiacgold, Cardigold and Visiongold. For the preparation of Aloe Vera pulp, fresh leaves were harvested and the pulp were processed immediately before the remaining production of ingredients to avoid microbial contamination and loss of biological activity and nutrients of Aloe Vera pulp. It was a successful effort by the entire team which resulted in a fresh batch of our products along with three new, innovative Aloe Vera juices for your heart, eyes and digestion!
