Eriobotrya japonica, commonly known as loquat, is an evergreen shrub that belongs to the rose (Rosaceae) family. It is widely cultivated in China and Japan for its edible fruit and seeds, as well as for the medicinal uses of its various parts, as previously noted. Here Ralph Flores, NaturalNews.com, reflects on loquat fruit offering protection against fatty liver:
“Researchers from Chonnam National University in South Korea have found that Eriobotrya japonica, commonly referred to as Japanese plum or loquat, can help protect the liver from damage caused by diet or alcohol intake. In their report, they looked at how Japanese plum can help liver cells at risk of damage from alcohol or free fatty acids. The results of the study were published in the Journal of Medicinal Food.
Poor diet, heavy alcohol use damage the liver
The liver is an essential organ of the body. The largest organ inside the body, the liver helps digest food and store energy — even remove poisons. However, its many functions put it at higher risk of disease and injury, in particular, hepatic steatosis.
Hepatic steatosis, better known as fatty liver disease, happens when extra fat is stored in the liver. While the liver stores a small amount of fat, it becomes a problem when fat reaches around 10 percent of the liver’s weight.
It’s worth noting that fatty liver disease has no symptoms at its onset. However, the condition can get worse over time and progress in three stages:
- Steatohepatitis, marked by liver inflammation and tissue damage
- Fibrosis, which occurs when scar tissue forms in damaged areas of the liver
- Cirrhosis, a serious condition where scar tissue replaces healthy tissue
Cirrhosis can often lead to liver cancer and even outright liver failure. Advanced cirrhosis is life-threatening.
Hepatic steatosis has two main forms:
- Alcoholic liver disease, wherein a person develops a fatty liver due to heavy alcohol use. In the U.S., around five percent of adults have this form of disease.”
