Cardiovascular risk factors in an Iranian urban population: Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study (Phase 1)
The prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors among Tehran urban population is high; particularly of high total cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol levels, and high waist to hip ratio.
-Glucosidase and -amylase inhibitory effect and antioxidant activity of ten plant extracts traditionally used in Iran for diabetes
In the present study various extracts of ten medicinal plants, collected in Iran, were examined for α-glucosidase and α-amylase inhibition using an in vitro model. Also total phenol content and
Essential oil composition, antibacterial and antioxidant activity of the oil and various extracts of Ziziphora clinopodioides subsp. rigida (BOISS.) RECH. f. from Iran.
The chemical composition of the essential oil obtained from the aerial parts of Z. rigida (BOISS.) RECH was analysed and it was found that Oxygenated monoterpenes were the predominant portion of the oil with pulegone, piperitenone, and thymol as the main constituents.
Serum lipid levels in an Iranian adults population: Tehran lipid and glucose study
The results showed higher levels of TC, LDL-C and TGs and slightly lower HDL-C in Tehranian adults than other studies in the industrialized countries.
Essential oil variation of Salvia officinalis aerial parts during its phenological cycle
1,8-cineole as one of the major constituents of all samples was lower in the vegetative stage and gradually increased in subsequent harvesting times to reach a maximum in flowering and then decreased in the fruiting set.
Flavonoids from Salvia chloroleuca with α-Amylsae and α-Glucosidase Inhibitory Effect
It is believed that the inhibition of carbohydrate hydrolyzing enzymes including α-amylase and α-glucosidase is one of the therapeutic approaches to decrease the postprandial glucose level after a
