Food selection based on total antioxidant capacity can modify antioxidant intake, systemic inflammation, and liver function without altering markers of oxidative stress.
BACKGROUND It is unknown whether diets with a high dietary total antioxidant capacity (TAC) can modify oxidative stress, low-grade inflammation, or liver dysfunction, all of which are risk factorsExpand

Total antioxidant capacity of the diet is inversely and independently related to plasma concentration of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein in adult Italian subjects.
Inflammation, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, is associated with low plasma levels of antioxidant vitamins. In addition to vitamins, other antioxidants modulate the synthesis ofExpand

Food selection based on high total antioxidant capacity improves endothelial function in a low cardiovascular risk population.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Oxidative stress has been advocated as a major cause for cardiovascular disease (CVD), and low plasma antioxidant concentrations are associated with endothelial dysfunction, theExpand

Plasma antioxidants from chocolate
There is some speculation that dietary flavonoids from chocolate, in particular (−)epicatechin, may promote cardiovascular health as a result of direct antioxidant effects or through antithromboticExpand

Dietary glycemic index and liver steatosis.
BACKGROUND Insulin resistance (IR) and liver steatosis (LS) are interlinked metabolic derangements whose prevalence is rapidly increasing, but the effect of dietary carbohydrate quality on LS isExpand

Intake of the plant lignans matairesinol, secoisolariciresinol, pinoresinol, and lariciresinol in relation to vascular inflammation and endothelial dysfunction in middle age-elderly men and
BACKGROUND AND AIMS It has been suggested that lignan intake may decrease the risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) by modifying traditional risk factors as well as aortic stiffness. However, theExpand

Insulin resistance/compensatory hyperinsulinemia predict carotid intimal medial thickness in patients with essential hypertension.
BACKGROUND AND AIM Approximately 50% of subjects with essential hypertension (EH) are insulin resistant, and this defect in insulin action could contribute to increased cardiovascular disease (CVD)Expand

Ability of a high-total antioxidant capacity diet to increase stool weight and bowel antioxidant status in human subjects
There is limited knowledge about the possible effect of unabsorbed dietary antioxidants that reach the large intestine on bowel habits. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether aExpand

Intervention study with a high or low antioxidant capacity diet: effects on circulating β-carotene
Background and objectives:A cross-sectional observation suggests that total antioxidant capacity (TAC) of the diet positively affects plasma concentrations of β-carotene independent of β-caroteneExpand
