Throughout our evolution, the importance of natural products for medicine and health has been enormous. In fact, it has only been during the past decades that natural products have taken a secondary role in drug discovery and development. The past few years, however, have seen a renewed interest in the use of natural compounds and, more importantly, their role as a basis for drug development.
In May 2019, scientists at the University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa confirmed the successful isolation of a new plant-derived molecule (SG178) from RelieveIt, a natural pain-relieving remedy that originated from Trinidad in the late 1800s. The most active component (SG178) was isolated, identified, and confirmed as new plant-derived drug discovery. Through subsequent analysis, it was determined that SG178 was superior to virtually every compound they examined, including CBD and diclofenac (the active ingredient in the widely used topical NSAID Voltaren), in cell-based inflammation assays.
Scientists predict RelieveIt has the potential to join the pantheon of historically important plant-derived drug discoveries along with Morphine, Aspirin, and Cannabis. With over 1.5 billion chronic pain suffers globally, medical science is constantly seeking safer, effective alternatives to drug products with harmful side effects.
Nature has provided a natural solution, which science is perfecting!
