Comparison of 4 diets of varying glycemic load on weight loss and cardiovascular risk reduction in overweight and obese young adults: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Both high-protein and low-GI regimens increase body fat loss, but cardiovascular risk reduction is optimized by a high-carbohydrate, low- GI diet.
Vitamin B12 in Health and Disease
TLDR
This review aims to outline the metabolism of vitamin B12, and to evaluate the causes and consequences of sub-clinical vitamin B 12 deficiency.
Evaluation of the Micronutrient Composition of Plant Foods Produced by Organic and Conventional Agricultural Methods
TLDR
The aim of the present analysis was to evaluate the micronutrient content of plant foods produced by organic and conventional agricultural methods and to determine the effect of organic agricultural methods on a broader range of nutrients and their potential impact on health.
Zinc and Regulation of Inflammatory Cytokines: Implications for Cardiometabolic Disease
TLDR
The interplay of zinc and inflammation warrants further examination, given the high prevalence of zinc deficiency and chronic disease globally, and the mechanism of action may reflect the ability of zinc to either induce or inhibit the activation of NF-κB.
Zinc and redox signaling: perturbations associated with cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
Despite the many interactions between zinc and cellular stress responses, studies investigating the potential therapeutic benefit of zinc supplementation in the prevention and treatment of oxidative stress-related chronic disease in humans are few and inconsistent.
The nutritional and metabolic effects of boron in humans and animals
TLDR
In rats, increasing the intake of B through the drinking water is reflected in the tissue concentrations, results in an increase in plasma testosterone and vitamin D, and results in a decrease in HDL cholesterol.
