Genetically modified rapeseed oil containing cis-9,trans-11,cis-13-octadecatrienoic acid affects body fat mass and lipid metabolism in mice.
Dietary GMRO, even at a dietary punicic acid level as low as 0.25 wt % of diet, reduced body fat mass and altered liver lipid metabolism in mice and was more effective than an equal amount of punICic acid from PO. Expand
High‐fat and high‐cholesterol diet rapidly induces non‐alcoholic steatohepatitis with advanced fibrosis in Sprague–Dawley rats
This work established a dietary model of NASH with rapid progression to fibrosis using genetically normal rats to establish a guide for the development of fibrosis in patients with non‐alcoholic steatohepatitis. Expand
α-Glucosidase Inhibitory Profile of Catechins and Theaflavins
To clarify the postprandial glucose suppression effect of flavonoids, the inhibitory effects of catechins and theaflavins against alpha-glucosidase (AGH) were examined in this study. It was initiallyExpand
Dietary conjugated linolenic acid in relation to CLA differently modifies body fat mass and serum and liver lipid levels in rats
Findings indicate that in rats CLNA modulated the body fat and TG metabolism differently from CLA, and the mechanism for the specific effect of CLNA is not clear. Expand
alpha-Glucosidase inhibitory profile of catechins and theaflavins.
It is demonstrated for the first time that TF-3-O-Gal can suppress glucose production from maltose through inhibition of AGH in the gut through the effects of catechins and theaflavins against alpha-glucosidase. Expand
Cholesterol esterase accelerates intestinal cholesterol absorption.
It is strongly suggested that cholesterol esterase hydrolyzes PC in bile salt micelles and thereby, accelerating the release of cholesterol from bile Salt micells, this may be a major cause of the acceleration of cholesterol absorption by cholesterol Esterase. Expand
D-psicose, an epimer of D-fructose, favorably alters lipid metabolism in Sprague-Dawley rats.
It is indicated that the D-psicose diet decreases lipogenesis, increases fatty acid oxidation, and enhances 24 h energy expenditure, leading to d-PSicose's potential for weight management. Expand
Polyphenol composition of a functional fermented tea obtained by tea-rolling processing of green tea and loquat leaves.
Isolation of these new and known compounds confirms that reactions previously demonstrated by in vitro model experiments actually occur when fresh tea leaves are mechanically distorted and bruised during the production process. Expand
Theflavins and theasinensin A derived from fermented tea have antihyperglycemic and hypotriacylglycerolemic effects in KK-A(y) mice and Sprague-Dawley rats.
Results indicate TFs and TSA induce antihyperglycemic responses in diabetic mice and are hypotriacylglycerolemic in rats by suppressing intestinal fat absorption. Expand
Anti-Obesity and Hypotriglyceridemic Properties of Coffee Bean Extract in SD Rats
The results suggest that CBE has potent anti-obesity and hypotriglyceridemic properties, and there is a possibility that these effects are exerted at least in part by the suppression of lipogenesis and the acceleration of lipolysis. Expand
