66 School of Applied Chemistry, Chung Shan Medical University in Taiwan revealed that the ingredients in Mojoba Health Supplement is active against the bad form of cholesterol (LDL). Their research revealed that the plant is able to lower high levels of LDL cholesterol in the blood and also protect various tissues in the body against LDL-related damage (Food Chem Toxicol. 2006 Jul;44(7):1015-23).

67 Institute of Forensic Medicine, Veracruz University in Mexico have also confirmed that the ingredients in Mojoba Health Supplement  is able to lower harmful LDL cholesterol levels. In an animal study they found that hibiscus was able to reduce LDL cholesterol levels significantly or very significantly and also promoted weight loss.   The scientists believe that acids in Mojoba are activated by bacteria in the gut, which then bind to and inactivate excess cholesterol (Plant Foods Hum Nutr. 2005 Dec;60(4):153-9).

68 Department of Pharmacology, Mahidol University in Bangkok revealed that the ingredients in Mojoba Health Supplement  given for a period of six weeks, were able to not only reduce LDL cholesterol but also protected the arteries against age-related damage. Better still, they found that the extracts do not affect the good form of cholesterol: HDL. A high HDL cholesterol level combined with a low LDL level has been found to offer the greatest protection against heart disease Helps eliminate cancer-causing free radicals from your body(J Ethnopharmacol 2006;103(2):252-60).

69 Chung Shan Medical University in Taiwan, who conducted studies on  ingredients in Mojoba Health Supplement regarding its cholesterol-lowering abilities, also examined the plant in addition to several other herbal supplements used in Oriental medicine for potential cancer-fighting properties. They found that Mojoba was the most effective anti-cancer herb of those tested. Reporting on their findings, the scientists explained that the plant contains polyphenols natural chemicals that perform a variety of actions in the body. In particular, they found that the polyphenols in Mojoba Health Supplement are able to attack and neutralise cancerous cells in the brain and skin (Anticancer Agents Med Chem. 2006;6(4):347-65). Several other scientific studies have also confirmed that Joba Juice extracts have anti-cancer benefits.

70 Indian Malaria Research Centre reported that the root extract is effective at killing the mosquitoes that carry malaria parasites (J Am Mosq Control Assoc. 2006;22(1):155-7).
