Found a special protein that allows the body to maintain healthy cells New types of so-called superfoods, which are aimed at improving the heart, as well as the prevention of diabetes and other diseases related to obesity may be developed by a special protein that helps keep the cells in the human body healthy and vibrant.

Scientists at a British university (Warwick) found that a protein called Nrf2, makes constant movement in the cell nucleus and the back, which helps to maintain the health of cells.This protein also regulates redox balance.Because of Nrf2 is activated in every cell protective properties and increased levels of antioxidants.

To increase the speed of Nrf2, the scientists decided to artificially add the nutrients contained in onions and broccoli: quercetin and sulforaphane.Based on these results, the British experts have concluded that eat fruits and vegetables is good for health.In the future we plan to develop superfoods, drugs and food additives that reduce the risk of developing heart disease and diabetes.
