Key Aspects in Nutritional Management of COVID-19 Patients
Several natural bioactive compounds interact with the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor, the gateway for severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and SARS-CoV-2, and are potential beneficial tools in the nutritional management of COVID-19 patients.
Resveratrol attenuates steatosis in obese Zucker rats by decreasing fatty acid availability and reducing oxidative stress
It is demonstrated that resveratrol can protect the liver from NAFLD by reducing fatty acid availability and also protects liver from oxidative stress.
Role of Omentin, Vaspin, Cardiotrophin-1, TWEAK and NOV/CCN3 in Obesity and Diabetes Development
A strong correlation has been found between plasma NOV/CCN3 concentration and fat mass and this adipokine improves insulin actions, which seems not to be directly related to adiposity, and metabolic factors play a critical role in its regulation.
Pterostilbene improves glycaemic control in rats fed an obesogenic diet: involvement of skeletal muscle and liver.
An increase in hepatic glucokinase activity, as well as in skeletal muscle glucose uptake, seems to be involved in the anti-diabetic effect of this phenolic compound.
Novel strategies for preventing diabetes and obesity complications with natural polyphenols.
Human adipocytes are proposed as a convenient model for the screening of "novel" polyphenols that can reproduce, out class, or reinforce resveratrol metabolic actions, and the use of combination ofpolyphenols is proposed to treat diabesity complications in view of recently reported synergisms.
Hydration and chemical ingredients in sport drinks: food safety in the European context.
Further scientific evidence should be constructed by new clinical trials in order to assist to the Experts Commitees at EFSA for obtaining robust scientific opinions concerning to the functional foods and the individual ingredients for sport population.
Effects of resveratrol on obesity-related inflammation markers in adipose tissue of genetically obese rats.
Evidence that fatty acid uptake and lipolysis are metabolic pathways involved in the response of adipose tissue to RSV is provided, which provides evidence that polyphenol modulates plasma cytokine levels partially by reducing macrophage infiltration in adipose tissues and inhibiting NF-κB activity.
Phenolic compounds apigenin, hesperidin and kaempferol reduce in vitro lipid accumulation in human adipocytes
The present study shows the anti-adipogenic effect and delipidating effects of apigenin, hesperidin and kaempferol in human adipocytes derived from hMSCs for the first time.
Screening of potential anti-adipogenic effects of phenolic compounds showing different chemical structure in 3T3-L1 preadipocytes.
The most effective phenolic compounds are naringenin, hesperidin and quercetin in terms of effects on the expression of genes involved in adipogenesis among the analyzed compounds.
Pterostilbene, a dimethyl ether derivative of resveratrol, reduces fat accumulation in rats fed an obesogenic diet.
The current study aimed to demonstrate the effects of pterostilbene in rats fed an obesogenic diet. For this purpose, pterostilbene was administered at doses of 15 mg/kg body weight/day (PT15 group)
