Antidepressant Effect of Crocus sativus Aqueous Extract and its Effect on CREB, BDNF, and VGF Transcript and Protein Levels in Rat Hippocampus.
TLDR
It was concluded that aqueous extract of saffron has antidepressant effects and the mechanism of its antidepressant effect may be due to increasing the levels of BDNF, VGF, CREB and P-CREB in rat hippocampus.
Review on Clinical Trials of Black Seed (Nigella sativa ) and Its Active Constituent, Thymoquinone
TLDR
Some effects of N. sativa, such as its hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic and bronchodilatory effects, have been sufficiently studied and are sufficiently understood to allow for the next phase of clinical trials or drug developments.
Neuroprotective effect of thymoquinone in acrylamide-induced neurotoxicity in Wistar rats
TLDR
The evaluation of effects of thymoquinone, the main constituent of volatile oil from Nigella sativa seeds in ACR-induced neurotoxicity, suggests the neuroprotective effect of TQ in this model in part may be because of due the antioxidant activity of this natural compound.
A review of the effects of Capsicum annuum L. and its constituent, capsaicin, in metabolic syndrome
TLDR
Red pepper has beneficial effects on metabolic syndrome and can decrease the risk of mortality due to cardiovascular diseases, but still more research projects need to be done and confirm its advantageous especially in humans.
Saffron: a promising natural medicine in the treatment of metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
It is suggested that after randomised clinical trials, saffron may be implicated as a preventive or therapeutic agent against metabolic syndrome.
Effects of Avocado (Persea americana) on Metabolic Syndrome: A Comprehensive Systematic Review
TLDR
The lipid‐lowering, antihypertensive, antidiabetic, anti‐obesity, antithrombotic, antiatherosclerotic, and cardioprotective effects of avocado are evaluated.
Effect of Linalool on Morphine Tolerance and Dependence in Mice
TLDR
This study indicated that linalool has a significant effect on morphine tolerance and dependence, which may be mediated partially through the inhibition of NMDA receptors.
Evaluation of Protein Ubiquitylation in Heart Tissue of Rats Exposed to Diazinon (an Organophosphate Insecticide) and Crocin (an Active Saffron Ingredient): Role of HIF-1α.
TLDR
The results showed that ubiquitylation could be considered as a marker of oxidative stress in rats exposed to DZN and crocin and increase in level of HIF-α may compensate adverse effect of DNZ in rat heart.
