Isoflavones in the methanolic extracts of kudzu (Pueraria lobata) callus, suspension and root cultures were compared in order to develop an experimental system in which puerarin (daidzein 8-C-glucoside) and other isoflavones could be synthesised in vitro. Quantitative variation of puerarin and other known isoflavones was estimated in kudzu culture extracts(More)
Isoflavones have potential for preventing and treating several chronic health conditions, such as osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. In this study, radiolabeled isoflavones were recovered from kudzu (Pueraria lobata) root cultures after incubation with uniformly labeled (14)C-sucrose in the culture medium for 21 days. Approximately 19% of(More)
Red clover isoflavones are increasingly used in dietary supplements for their purported estrogenic effects. However, little is known about their metabolism in animals due to a lack of commercially available isotopically labeled tracers. The goal of this research was to establish red clover cell culturing methodology for 14C-biolabeling of isoflavones. When(More)
PURPOSE To examine the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) in Illinois and associated risk factors to document emerging problems as a basis for preventive and/or therapeutic interventions. DESIGN The 2005 Illinois Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System data were analyzed for prevalence rates and relative risk (RR) of risk factors for MS. SETTING(More)
Absorption, distribution and elimination of 14C-labelled isoflavone-containing extracts from kudzu (Pueraria lobata) root culture and red clover (Trifolium pratense) cell culture were investigated in an in vivo rat model. The predominant isoflavones in the kudzu extract were the glycosides puerarin, daidzin and malonyl daidzin, while in the red clover(More)
T HE ACADEMY OF NUTRITION and Dietetics (Academy) Nutrition Practice Guideline (NPG) for Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes in Adults is a newly developed guideline. It has also been published in the Academy’s Evidence Analysis Library (EAL). The NPG updates the 2008 Diabetes Type 1 and 2 Evidence-Based NPG for Adults.
