NEW YORK — A new type of plant known as ganode is gaining a reputation as a possible treatment for arthritis.
The new plant has the ability to regenerate skin, restore tissue, and even heal wounds.
While ganoda has been used in traditional medicine for centuries, it was not until the late 1990s that the plant’s unique mechanism of action was scientifically studied.
“It was really only around the last five years that we really started to understand the nature of this plant,” said Dr. Jeffrey Zeng, a researcher at New York University’s School of Medicine.
In recent years, scientists have been able to develop the ganodes immune system.
Its structure is made up of proteins, peptides and nucleic acids that bind to different kinds of proteins to cause them to assemble into the body’s immune system, which responds to a range of infections.
But, it has also been shown to act in a variety of other ways, such as fighting off bacteria and fungi.
It also has the capacity to control pain and inflammation, and to help with muscle spasms.
Zeng has been able, over the years, to use the new ganoding system in a range in treating arthritis.
“It’s not like we’re taking it to the next level, but it’s really good at controlling inflammation,” he said.
With the ability of ganodic cells to turn into cells that are more efficient in converting nutrients into muscle and tissue, Zeng believes it could one day be used in a surgical setting.
One of the most promising uses of gans cells is to treat arthritis.
But there are also other uses.
Because gans is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, it may help reduce joint pain.
Researchers are also experimenting with the plant for the treatment of autoimmune disorders.
Some of the researchers are working on developing a version that is specifically designed to combat HIV.
