Cytotoxicity and oxidative mechanisms of different forms of chromium.
TLDR
Comparative studies demonstrate that a cascade of cellular events including oxidative stress, genomic DNA damage and modulation of apoptotic regulatory gene p53 are involved in chromium(VI)-induced toxicity and carcinogenesis. Expand
Molecular mechanisms of cardioprotection by a novel grape seed proanthocyanidin extract.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that IH636 grape seed proanthocyanidin extract (GSPE) provides superior antioxidant efficacy as compared to Vitamins C, E and beta-carotene and may serve as a potential therapeutic tool in promoting cardiovascular health via a number of novel mechanisms. Expand
A Review of the Receptor-Binding Properties of p-Synephrine as Related to Its Pharmacological Effects
TLDR
The adrenoreceptor binding characteristics of p-synephrine relative to m- synephrine, norepinephrine, and other amines as related to the observed pharmacological effects are summarized. Expand
A Dietary Supplement Containing Standardized Phaseolus vulgaris Extract Influences Body Composition of Overweight Men and Women
TLDR
Results indicate that Phaseolus vulgaris extract produces significant decrement in body weight and suggest decrements in fat mass in the face of maintained lean body mass and indicate the use of natural weight loss supplements could aid in the struggle against obesity. Expand
Cellular Protection with Proanthocyanidins Derived from Grape Seeds
TLDR
It is demonstrated that IH636 proanthocyanidin extract (GSPE) provides excellent protection against free radicals in both in vitro and in vivo models and may serve as a potential therapeutic tool in protecting multiple target organs from structurally diverse drug‐ and chemical‐induced toxicity. Expand
Therapeutic effects of oral NADH on the symptoms of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
TLDR
The results of this pilot study indicate that NADH may be a valuable adjunctive therapy in the management of the chronic fatigue syndrome and suggest that further clinical trials be performed to establish its efficacy in this clinically perplexing disorder. Expand
Effects of different chromium compounds on blood pressure and lipid peroxidation in spontaneously hypertensive rats.
TLDR
It is concluded that chromium, rather than a specific ligand, plays a major role in ameliorating sucrose-induced BP elevations and can act as an antioxidant. Expand
Minimum inhibitory concentrations of herbal essential oils and monolaurin for gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria
TLDR
In vitro the cidal and/or static effects of oil of origanum, several other essential oils, and monolaurin on Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus anthracis Sterne, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Helicobacter pylori, and Mycobacterium terrae were examined. Expand
Antifungal activities of origanum oil against Candida albicans
TLDR
The results from this study encourage examination of the efficacy of origanum oil in other forms of systemic and superficial fungal infections and exploration of its broad spectrum effect against other pathogenic manifestations including malignancy. Expand
