Serum albumin and health
Elevated Serum Albumin relative to low serum albumin

levels decrease all-
A direct protective effect of elevated serum albumin in cancer patients is suggested by the research data. Low levels of serum albumin are correlated to poor survival in cancer patients. Higher serum albumin levels are correlated significantly to better survival in breast cancer, ovarian cancer, bowel cancer, prostate cancer and several other cancers.
An Editorial in the Journal of The National Medical Association (USA) states that “when albumin levels are restored and maintained there is usually full remission or at the very least stabilization in all forms of cancer”.

There is increasing medical research evidence that elevated serum albumin helps to protect against cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease. Research shows that serum albumin plays a role in neuroprotection and that serum albumin and albumin from microglial cells clear the peptides and/or prevent aggregation of peptides which are precursors of Alzheimer’s disease.
Heart disease and stroke
There is increasing medical research evidence that elevated serum albumin helps to
protect against the consequences of ischemic heart disease (coronary heart disease),
myocardial infarction (heart attack) and cerebral infarction (stroke). Most research
studies show that a lower concentration of serum albumin is associated with a two-
