Antiproliferation activities were also studied in vitro using HepG(2) human liver-cancer cells, and cranberry showed the highest inhibitory effect with an EC(50) of 14.5 +/- 0.5 mg/mL, followed by lemon, apple, strawberry, red grape, banana, grapefruit, and peach. Thus, most of the antioxidant activity comes from phytochemicals, not vitamin C. Like other medicinal plants containing coumarin (1) such as Justicia pectoralis, Pterodon polygaliflorus, Hybanthus ipecacuanha and Eclipta alba, A. cearensis, also has a relaxing activity on isolated guinea pig tracheal muscles (Leal et al., 2000).

Pure cranberry juice is mainly purchased on medicinal grounds by women suffering from recurring urinary tract infections. The benefits of individual phytochemical supplements are largely unproven. Inhibition of GJIC is strongly related to the carcinogenic process, especially to tumour promotion.1 H2O2, a tumour promoter, induces inhibition of GJIC and hyperphosphorylation of connexin43 protein (Cx43), which mainly modulates GJIC.1 We investigated the effects of vitamin C on GJIC and phosphorylation pattern of connexin43 in rat liver epithelial cells treated with H2O2, according to our previous methods.1 Inhibition of GJIC and hyperphosphorylation of connexin43 induced by H2O2 was prevented by pretreatment of the cells with 100 �mol/L vitamin C (figure).

In our study we identified Sangre de Grado, the sap from the tree trunk of the species Croton lechleri sampled in Peru to have exceptional high antioxidant content. The results indicate that raisins influence antioxidant potential in vivo, while the contained phytochemicals are bioavailable. Mice fed cranberry juice cocktail or isolated proanthocyanidins (50 or 500 mg/300mL water) excreted urine with E. One of the most important issues is the types of metabolites to which the cells are exposed.
