Buds

NOTE: These indications are only for use with embryonic plant stem cell tissues. Adult plants do not have the same constituents, actions or applications in most cases.

The Malus sylvestris is a deciduous, shrubby, spring flowering tree with irregular, scaly, rose-purple-grey bark. Often deprived of light due to larger trees surrounding it, the Malus sylvestris grows to a height of only 25 feet during its first 20 years, reaching an ultimate height of 37 feet in its lifetime. The buds of the Malus sylvestris are arranged spirally along its twigs, with buds at the ends of the branches becoming larger in size. This tree’s cup-shaped white and pink flowers bloom in early May, and its sour, apple-like fruits arrive during autumn. Leaves alternate with pointed tips.

Its wood is used for carving, inlay work, mallets, and screws. It makes a pleasantly aromatic firewood. Jelly can be made from the fruit.

Bach flower applications: The cleansing remedy. Crab apple is for those who feel as if they have something not quite clean about themselves. It is for the type of person who is obsessed with cleanliness, tidiness, and minute detail. The positive quality of this remedy is one of self-appreciation and a comfortable acceptance of oneself. Plant Stem Cell Therapy offers these same benefits.

Organic acids, malic acid and gallic acid. Quercetin-3-galactoside, quercetin-3-glucoside, quercetin-3-rhamnoside, catechin, epicatechin, procyanidin, cyanidin-3-galactoside, coumaric acid, chlorogenic acid, gallic acid, and phloridzin. The procyanidins, epicatechin and catechin, have strong antioxidant activity and have been found to inhibit low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation. Catechin inhibits intestinal tumor formation and delays tumors onset. Chlorogenic acid has very high alkyl peroxyl radical (ROO•) scavenging activity. Compared to about 18 other antioxidant compounds (including quercetin, gallic acid, α-tocopherol), chlorogenic was second only to rutin. Since ROO• may enhance tumor promotion and carcinogenesis, chlorogenic acid may add to the protective effect of apples against cancer. Chlorogenic acid has been found to inhibit 8-dehydroxy-deoxyguanosine formation in cellular DNA in a rat model following treatment with 4-nitroquinoline-1-oxide. Quercetin is also a strong antioxidant, and is thought to have potential protective effects against both cancer and heart disease. Briefly, quercetin has been found to down regulate expression of mutant p53 in breast cancer cells, arrest human leukemic T-cells in G1, inhibit tyrosine kinase, and inhibit heat shock proteins. Quercetin has protected Caco-2 cells from lipid peroxidation induced by hydrogen peroxide and Fe2+. Quercetin decreased lipid oxidation and increased glutathione, protecting the liver from oxidative damage. Recently, it has been found that high doses of quercetin inhibit cell proliferation in colon carcinoma cell lines and in mammary adenocarcinoma cell lines, but at low doses quercetin increased cell proliferation (20% in colon cancer cells and 100% in breast cancer cells). However, low doses of quercetin (10 uM) inhibited cell proliferation in Mol-4 Human Leukemia cells and also induced apoptosis. Detoxifies the blood & Lymphatic system.

Apple Polyphenols are phytochemicals concentrated in the skin of embryonic unripe apples. These chemical compounds are being studied extensively in labs around the world for their health effects in major diseases, including prevention and treatment of: Colon, skin lung Cancers, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Alzheimer's, Allergies, Asthma, Baldness etc…
Recently, apple polyphenol extracts have been announced to dramatically decrease organ fat and increase muscle strength in laboratory animals. This exciting but preliminary report from researchers in Japan has fueled a strong interest in these natural botanical compounds.

ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. The test was developed by researchers at Boston's Tufts University and the USDA, as a way of measuring the antioxidant power of foods.

Scientists at the USDA have announced that eating high-ORAC foods may slow diseases associated with aging. New test results show that an extract from baby apple skins may be the next anti-aging superfood.

Attacking the Underlying Cause
Free radical damage, or oxidative stress, is now accepted by many experts as a factor in every degenerative disease related to aging.

"We're living too short and dying too long," says medical nutritional specialist Ray D. Strand, M.D. "Most of us can simply look forward to suffering and dying from heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, macular degeneration, and the list goes on and on," says Dr. Strand, "unless we literally attack the underlying cause of all of these diseases- oxidative stress."

As the list of ORAC-tested foods continues to grow, it will become easier for consumers to fight aging with small changes in diet. But the most exciting news may be in creating a new class of superfoods that exceed the ORAC value of even high-ORAC vegetables and fruits.

"We've found some fruit components and extracts that are nearly off the ORAC scale," says Kern, who provides medical and nutritional anti-aging news to clients. "The wave of the future is in foods fortified with high-powered antioxidant ingredients. For instance, the skins of unripe apples have the highest antioxidant power of any tested food by far, at 15,000 units. But they're too bitter to eat." But PSC extract are embryonic plant material that already offers such benefits we have to our disposal Crab apple in the unripe form with the added phytochemical constituents which renders it even more beneficial to achieve in the reduction of oxidative stress making it a perfect extract for anti aging benefits. Sour apples in non matureform extend lifespan. A safe, natural substance: apple polyphenols. Catalase is now proven to extend the life span of mammals. Apple polyphenols are proven to increase catalase.
