Professor Romulus Ion Scorei discovered the benefits of Calcium fructoborate in treating cancer. The biochemist set up the only research institute in the world focused on the research of the natural compounds of Bohr, the Bioboron Research Institute, located in Podari.
In his study, “Stevia – the green sugar or healthy sugar, natural sweetener with 0 calories used in human nutrition” developed together with Anca-Mihaela Bulearca and Florentina-Ileana Badea, researcher Romulus Ion Scorei shows that: “the steviol glycosides, parts of the stevia which give it its sweet taste, are natural sweeteners, low-calorie, very stable, easy to process thermally, being used in drinks and foods. Steviosides, rebaudiosides A, steviol and so steviol also present anti-hyperglycemic, anti-hypertensive, anti-inflammation, anti-tumor, anti-diarrhea, diuretic and immuno-modulatory actions, becoming safe and efficient alternatives to sugar.”
