Abstract Eight popularly consumed green leafy vegetables in Nigeria namely: Structium sparejanophora, Amarantus cruentus, Telfairia occidentalis, Baselia alba, Solanum macrocarpon, CorchorusExpand
Nutrient enrichment of cassava peels using a mixed culture of Saccharomyces cerevisae and Lactobacillus spp solid media fermentation techniques
Cassava pulp was fermented with pure strains of Saccharomyces cerevisae and two bacteria namely Lactobacillus delbruckii and Lactobacillus coryneformis for 3 days. The squeezed liquid from theExpand
Antioxidant properties of some commonly consumed and underutilized tropical legumes
The antioxidant properties of some commonly consumed [cowpea (Vigna unguiculata)] and underutilized [pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan) and African yam bean (Sphenostylis sternocarpa)] legumes were assessedExpand
Biochemical changes in cassava products (flour & gari) subjected to Saccharomyces cerevisae solid media fermentation
In an attempt to enhance the nutritional quality of cassava products (flour and gari), Saccharomyces cerevisae was used in the fermentation (solid media) of cassava pulp. The mash obtained wasExpand
Nutritional and haemolytic properties of eggplants (Solanum macrocarpon) leaves
Abstract Solanum macrocarpon (eggplant) leaves are used as soup condiment in Nigeria either in their processed or unprocessed forms. In this study, fresh leaves of eggplant were subjected toExpand

Soybean phenolic-rich extracts inhibit key-enzymes linked to type 2 diabetes (α-amylase and α-glucosidase) and hypertension (angiotensin I converting enzyme) in vitro.
P phenolic-rich extracts of soybean could inhibit key-enzyme linked to type 2 diabetes (α-amylase and α-glucosidase) and hypertension (ACE) and thus could explain in part the mechanism by which soybean renders these health promoting effect. Expand
Inhibitory effect of polyphenol-rich extracts of jute leaf (Corchorus olitorius) on key enzyme linked to type 2 diabetes (α-amylase and α-glucosidase) and hypertension (angiotensin I converting) in
Abstract Corchorus olitorius leaf is consumed in various parts of the world as leafy vegetable and folk remedy for the management of some degenerative diseases with dearth of information on itsExpand
Comparative Study on the Inhibitory Effect of Caffeic and Chlorogenic Acids on Key Enzymes Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease and Some Pro-oxidant Induced Oxidative Stress in Rats’ Brain-In Vitro
One possible mechanism through which the phenolic acids exert their neuroprotective properties is by inhibiting AChE and BChE activities as well as preventing oxidative stress-induced neurodegeneration. Expand
Antioxidant and Neuroprotective Properties of Sour Tea (Hibiscus sabdariffa, calyx) and Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) on some Pro-oxidant-induced Lipid Peroxidation in Brain in vitro
Oxidative stress is the cause of neurodegenerative disorders such as Lou Gehrig’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease; one practical way to prevent and manage neurodegenerativeExpand
