Studies on Nutmeg (mercola)

Methanol extracts of Myristica fragrans (nutmeg) significantly inhibited Jurkat leukemia cell proliferation and induced apoptosis in a university trial, although the mechanism causing the apoptosis was not clear.1

In another study, scientists evaluated nutmeg’s bactericidal potential against three types of streptococcus bacteria.

In conclusion, their report outlined the potential effect of ethanol extracts from nutmeg as a natural agent that can be incorporated in oral care products.2

Summary NUTMEG BY MERCOLA

A rare, costly spice once prized by Byzantine traders, nutmeg has an ancient history for its curative as well as culinary uses.

Originally from the Spice Islands, nutmeg was one of those sought-after spices that launched a thousand ships.

The spice wars between Indonesia, Portugal, and the Netherlands almost rendered the nutmeg tree extinct, but early transportation and cultivation saved it for posterity.

It's a good thing.


In spite of its time-intensive harvesting process, nutmeg imparts an incredible array of nutritional benefits such as manganese, copper, and magnesium,

.... as well as antioxidants and volatile oils that can both soothe and stimulate the brain,

...relieve joint, muscular, and toothache pain, and provide antifungal, antidepressant, and gas-inhibitive functions.

Some people use it to get high. Mostly, the oil I think. It can be dangerous in large doses. I'm sure it has thereputic purposes, as well.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elemicin

It may need to be potentiated with black pepper (piperine).

(The actives in nutmeg and elemi (probably) are allylbenzenes.
Allylbenzenes are not terpenes; they are phenylpropanoids. These compounds also abound in essential oils. Basically, there is debate as to whether or not these compounds are active as is, or if there is some sort of biotransformation that must occur first in order to activate them for our purposes. )

- from a website that deals with psychoactive experiences. This may be the case for medical uses, too.

It's good in egg nog!
