Epidemiological and experimental studies have indicated a relationship among aging, dietary Mg, inflammatory stress, and cardiovascular disease. Our aim in the present study was to investigate possible links between dietary Mg, oxidant stress parameters, and inflammatory status with aging in rats. We designed a long-term study in which rats were fed for 22(More)
In the present study, we investigated the effect of long-term dietary Mg intake on the rate of oxidative stress, apoptosis and ageing in rat livers. To address this issue, rats were fed diets containing either a moderately deficient (0.15 g Mg/kg diet), a standard (0.8 g Mg/kg diet) or a high (3.2 g Mg/kg diet) Mg dose for two years. It is noteworthy that a(More)
In the present study we investigated the effect of a two-year treatment period with a diet containing 3.2g, 0.8 g and 0.15 g Mg/kg, on the rat liver transcriptome. At the end of the study, a treatment-dependent decrease in plasmatic Mg concentration was found (0.86 +/- 0.02 mmol/L, 0.70 +/- 0.02 mmol/L and 0.52 +/- 0.03 mmol/L for groups receiving 3.2g, 0.8(More)
Obesity and related metabolic diseases are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. We have previously shown the beneficial effects of dietary magnesium (Mg) supplementation on cardiovascular disease in rats. Therefore, we aimed to examine the effect of an Mg-deficient or supplemented diet on adipose tissue cellularity changes during aging,(More)
