Anti-angiogenesis and weight loss
There have been alot of studies going on in past decades related to the association of angiogenesis with cancers. During the research, one thing more has emerged that angiogenesis / anti-angiogenesis is not just related to cancer cells, but the anti-angiogenesis factors are also responsible for weight loss.
There are two types of anti angiogenesis factors, exogenous and endogenous.
Endogenous anti-angiogenesis factors
Endogenous factors performing anti-angiogenesis duty are the ones formed by the tissues inside the body.They’re normally formed along with the angiogenesis factors by normal cells of the body too to maintain normal body growth and to maintain homeostasis.
Exogenous anti-angiogenesis factors
Exogenous anti-angiogenesis factors are those which are acquired by the body from outside. These consist of two types of substances, drugs / medicines and food components with anti-angiogenic properties.
We will not discuss the medicines with anti-angiogenic effects here due to several reasons including their harmful effects (most if not all) and the potential of misuse.
Foods with anti-angiogenesis capability
Food components commonly found around us have very potent anti-angiogenesis properties. They’re mostly the ones which are considered otherwise healthy by most cultures but overlooked by the so called “educated” youth. Some of them are so potent that they can even cause severe weightloss.
These food components were originally studied to cure cancers with food. However their potent weight loss (as a side effect as a matter of fact) has made them important for weight loss purposes too.
It’s important to take them in normal quantities and have good exercise with diet and routine to keep the body in good health and shape.
Common foods and herbs with anti-angiogenesis capabilities and ability to induce weight loss are:
- Green tea
- Red grapes
- Bok Choy
- Soy beans
- Mitake mushroom
- Sea cucumber
- Olive oil
- Grape seed oil
- Dark chocolate
The list is exhaustive and continues! the items found in the list can be seen, they’re commonly found around us and some of them are in our kitchen on daily basis too, but missed and left considering them too sour or tasteless sometimes (most of them, some are tasty too!)
The list above is with reference to Dr Williams list of naturally occurring anti-angiogenic substances which he presented in TEDTalk.
