What is it about?

This research validates the efficacy of chlorophyllin in compellingly preventing cytotoxic and genotoxic effects imposed by a common food additive, alloxan, in the mice model. More than 18 parameters are taken into consideration in the present study, all of which coherently infers the efficacy of our selected phytochemical.

Why is it important?

Alloxan is a very common food additive that exerts a vast range of toxic and noxious effects on our bodies. The phytotherapeutic strategy opted in the research work substantiates chlorophyllin as a simple non-toxic yet potent biomolecule with a plethora of ameliorative properties.


I sincerely hope that the readers find this research work to be thought-provoking in the context of the role of food additive-induced paradigm shift of homeostasis in an organism and that the research interests peers in this field towards the development of a plausible strategy involving Phyto-based therapeutic remediation.
