Does anybody know of a plant extract or supplement that blocks IL-8 (Interleukin-8)?
Also berberine might. It is given as an anti-inflammatory but I don't know if it is specific to IL-8.
Anatabloc also might do it. It is a tobacco derivative that is way too expensive but some get good results from it.
I've been using curcumin myself.
Glucocorticoids, like hydrocortisone.
Berberine dose-dependently inhibited IL-8 mRNA and MCP-1 mRNA expression of the cells and protein levels in the media stimulated with IL-1beta or TNF-alpha.
These findings indicate that berberine dose-dependently inhibited the expression of IL-8 and MCP-1 induced by IL-1beta or TNF-alpha.
Thanks guys. First, I found Naringenin, which is a Grape Fruit bioflavonoid. However, it interferes with many medications. Then, I found Bergamot Extract, but that is nearly $30.00 a bottle. And I was frustrated. Berberine seems like a much better and cheaper choice.
