Dragon Fruit Peel Extract Helps with Alcoholic Liver Disease!

Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) has become a health problem as alcohol consumption has increased annually both in Taiwan and around the world. Hepatic lipid accumulation, oxidative stress, and inflammation are important factors in the progression of ALD. Red pitaya (Hylocereus polyrhizus) peel is rich in polyphenols and betanins, which possess antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the effects of red pitaya peel extract (PPE) on ALD, and explore the associated mechanisms. Laboratory mice were administered an ethanol liquid diet, which induced ALD, and PPE treatment was shown to reduce hepatic fat accumulation, oxidative stress, and inflammation. Thus, PPE may help prevent the progression of ALD.
