Sorghum bicolor

Sorghum bicolor is a species of grass, traditionally cultivated for its nutritious grain. Sorghum is now grown in many tropical and subtropical regions of the world, and is gaining increased popularity as a non-gluten grain. Historical uses of Sorghum include food, hot teas, beers, and traditional medicinal extracts.

Health benefits include

  • Multi-facetted anti-inflammatory properties
  • Immune activation
  • Hematopoietic effect
  • Pain reduction

West African Sorghum-based JobelynTM has anti-inflammatory properties

JobelynTM is produced from a unique wild variety of Sorghum bicolor, recently domesticated from a West African wild varity, representing original genetic makeup and not a result of intense breeding efforts. JobelynTM is an extract derived specifically from the intensely colored leaf sheathes. JobelynTM is GRAS-certified by the FDA. Jobelyn TM has an unusual chemical profile compared to other variants of Sorghum bicolor. It has a very high content of unique antioxidant polyphenols, including unique dimeric 3-deoxyanthocyanidins. These compounds contribute to the chemical and biological antioxidant effects.

Chronic inflammatory conditions underlie many aspects of declining physical and mental health. Comprehensive anti-inflammatory nutritional strategies are increasingly gaining attention for health management. Inflammation involves multiple pathways, including:

  • Production of damaging free radicals
  • Infiltration of inflammatory cells into target tissues
  • Up-regulation of inflammatory enzymes, such as COX-2

Jobelyn was evaluated in laboratory tests involving separate mechanisms of action. Jobelyncontains a complex array of compounds with different chemical properties that inhibit free radical production, reduce infiltration of inflammatory cells, and inhibit COX-2 enzymatic activity. This suggests a multi-faceted anti-inflammatory capacity of JobelynTM .
