Euterpe oleracea Mart.-Derived Polyphenols Protect Mice from Diet-Induced Obesity and Fatty Liver by Regulating Hepatic Lipogenesis and Cholesterol Excretion
TLDR
ASE substantially reduced the obesity and hepatic steatosis induced by HF diet by reducing lipogenesis, increasing cholesterol excretion and improving oxidative stress in the liver, providing a nutritional resource for prevention of obesity-related adiposity and hepatosis.
Antinociceptive effects of the essential oil of Mentha x villosa leaf and its major constituent piperitenone oxide in mice.
TLDR
Results show that EOMV and PO have antinociceptive activity and suggest that this effect is probably an indirect anti-inflammatory effect, which does not involve the central nervous system.
Anti-infl ammatory and antinociceptive activities of Euterpe oleracea oil
TLDR
The results suggested that OEO has anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities, probably of peripheral origin and linked to prostaglandin biosynthesis inhibition.
Variability in Essential‐Oil Composition of Piper marginatum sensu lato
This paper contains data on the chemical composition of the essential oils of 22 leaf samples of Piper marginatum Jacq. collected in different areas and ecosystems of the brazilian Amazon, as well as
Essential Oil Composition of Three Peperomia Species from the Amazon, Brazil
TLDR
The essential oils of three species of Peperomia from the Amazon, Brazil, were hydrodistilled and their 96 volatile constituents identified by GC and GC-MS showed high brine shrimp larvicidal activities, followed by the extract of P. pellucida and macrostachya, therefore with important biological properties.
Antidiabetic effect of Euterpe oleracea Mart. (açaí) extract and exercise training on high-fat diet and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats: A positive interaction
TLDR
ASE treatment has an antidiabetic effect in type 2 diabetic rats by activating the insulin-signaling pathway in muscle and adipose tissue, increasing GLP-1 levels, and an anti-inflammatory action.
Antioxidant capacity and cytotoxicity of essential oil and methanol extract of Aniba canelilla (H.B.K.) Mez.
TLDR
The leaves and fine stems, bark, and trunk wood oils of Aniba canelilla showed yields ranging from 0.2 to 1.3%, and in the brine shrimp bioassay the values of lethal concentration and DPPH radical scavenging activity were lower than that of the wood methanol extracts, showing significant biological activities.
Anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities of Euterpe oleracea Mart., Arecaceae, oil
TLDR
The results suggested that OEO has anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities, probably of peripheral origin and linked to prostaglandin biosynthesis inhibition.
