Maternal dietary folate and/or vitamin B12 restrictions alter body composition (adiposity) and lipid metabolism in Wistar rat offspring.

- Biology, MedicineThe Journal of nutritional biochemistry
Maternal and peri-/postnatal folate and/or vitamin B(12) restriction increased visceral adiposity (due to increased corticosteroid stress), altered lipid metabolism in rat offspring perhaps by modulating adipocyte function and may thus predispose them to high morbidity later.
Maternal and perinatal magnesium restriction predisposes rat pups to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance.
Maternal magnesium restriction irreversibly increases body fat and induces insulin resistance in pups by 6 mo of age, whereas additional perinatal Mg deficiency impairs glucose tolerance.

The results suggest that phenolics may contribute significantly to the AOA of some plant foods, such as spices and dehusked legumes.

It is suggested that addition of milk may not obviate the ability ofblack tea to modulate the antioxidant status of subjects and that consumption of black tea with/without milk prevents oxidative damage in vivo.

It is hypothesised that chronic maternal vitamin restriction predisposes the offspring to insulin resistance syndrome in later life through changes in adiposity and fat metabolism.

Severe under-nutrition appears to be relevant to BV positivity and local immunity in non-pregnant Indian women of low socio economic status and greater degradation of IgA and IgM in BV suggests impaired local immunity.
Chronic Maternal Dietary Chromium Restriction Modulates Visceral Adiposity
Chronic maternal Cr restriction increased body adiposity probably due to increased stress and altered lipid metabolism in WNIN rat offspring, which may predispose them to obesity and associated diseases in later life.
Does maternal dietary mineral restriction per se predispose the offspring to insulin resistance?

Maternal MR per se resulted in an increase in body fat and in plasma triacylglycerol concentrations in the offspring, however, no discernable effect on insulin sensitivity over the first 180 days of life.
Long‐term Effects of Maternal Magnesium Restriction on Adiposity and Insulin Resistance in Rat Pups
The long‐term effects of maternal/postnatal magnesium restriction on adiposity, glucose tolerance, and insulin secretion in the offspring and the probable biochemical mechanisms associated with them are investigated.
Prenatal and perinatal zinc restriction: effects on body composition, glucose tolerance and insulin response in rat offspring

Chronic maternal zinc restriction altered the body composition and impaired the glucose‐induced insulin secretion in the offspring and changed the plasma lipid profile among offspring of different groups.
