Cateus is a “super food” combination of natural turmeric and Indian gooseberry.
Turmeric, the root of Curcuma longa, is the most prominent chemopreventive agent studied. Turmeric is an an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-proliferative, anti-angiogenic, and anti-neoplastic agent because it regulates important transcription factors, cytokines, protein kinases, adhesion molecules and redox status. It has been used to treat many different conditions such as neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, allergy, asthma and bronchitis, inflammatory bowel diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, renal ischemia, psoriasis, scleroderma, acquired immunodeficiency disease (AIDS), and cancer as well as an anti-aging and scar formation agent.
Indian gooseberry has strong anticancer, antioxidant, immunomodulating, cholesterol balancing, and liver protective properties. It’s the gooseberries’ potential for preventing heart disease that is currently getting the most attention. Research shows that gooseberries can help lower cholesterol as well.
Historical uses of Indian gooseberry for mild to moderate conditions of upset stomach, fever or the common cold are common.
