Recently, deep sea water (DSW) has started to receive much attention for therapeutic intervention in some lifestyle diseases. In this study, the anti-obesity and antidiabetic effects of DSW in ob/ob mice were investigated. The animals were randomly divided into two groups with six animals: control group received tap water; the experimental group was treated with DSW of hardness 1000 for 84 days. The body weight gain after 84 days in DSW-fed group was decreased by 7% compared to the control… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Anti-Diabetic Effect of Balanced Deep-Sea Water and Its Mode of Action in High-Fat Diet Induced Diabetic Mice
TLDR
Results suggest that BDSW has potential as an anti-diabetic agent, given its ability to suppress hyperglycemia and improve glucose intolerance by increasing glucose uptake.
Combination of deep sea water and Sesamum indicum leaf extract prevents high-fat diet-induced obesity through AMPK activation in visceral adipose tissue.
TLDR
Results suggest that DSS is effective for suppressing body weight gain and enhancing the lipid profile.
Modulation of Glucose Metabolism by Balanced Deep-Sea Water Ameliorates Hyperglycemia and Pancreatic Function in Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetic Mice
TLDR
BDSW is suggested to be a potential anti-diabetic agent, owing to its ability to suppress hyperglycemia and improve glucose intolerance by modulating glucose metabolism, recovering pancreatic islets of Langerhans and increasing glucose uptake.
Anti-diabetic effect of magnesium salt extracts from deep-sea water in C57BLKS/J-db/db mice
TLDR
Overall, the Mg salt extract improved the symptoms of impaired fasting glucose and glucose tolerance, suggesting that it can be used as an effective agent for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Effect of yogurt containing deep sea water on health-related serum parameters and intestinal microbiota in mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that DSW supplementation of yogurt can increase its beneficial effects on lipid metabolism.
Effects of Deep Sea Water on Anti-Obesity Properties in Induction of Beige Adipocytes
TLDR
Deep sea water (DSW) has the potential to promote browning of WAT and upregulates the thermogenic genes that are responsible for energy expenditure.
Deep Sea Water Improves Abnormalities in Lipid Metabolism through Lipolysis and Fatty Acid Oxidation in High-Fat Diet-Induced Obese Rats
TLDR
The results showed that body weight, liver, adipose tissue, hepatic triglycerides and cholesterol, and serum parameters in the high-fat diet + DSW groups were significantly lower compared to the HFD group.
Effect of Mineral-rich Salt Intake on Diabetic Goto-Kakizaki Rats
TLDR
In GK rats, glucose levels among the salt groups in OGTT by glucose were not significantly different compared to normal rats, and no such association was observed for insulin.

Pharmacological activity of deep-sea water: examination of hyperlipemia prevention and medical treatment effect.
TLDR
From these results, it is clear that deep-sea water controls the increase of serum lipid values (T-Cho and LDL-Cho) of cholesterol-fed rabbits, and promotes the reduction of serum cholesterol hyperlipemia rabbits.
Calcium deficiency cannot induce obesity in rats
Inhibitory Effect of Deep-sea Water on Differentiation of 3T3-L1 Adipocytes
TLDR
A potential role for deep-sea water as anti-obesity agents by inhibiting adipocyte differentiation mediated through the down-regulated expression of adipogenic transcription factors and adipocyte-specific proteins is suggested.
Difference between deep seawater and surface seawater in the preventive effect of atherosclerosis.
TLDR
The results suggested that the deep seawater was useful for the prevention of hyperlipidemia and arteriosclerosis compared to the surface seawater, and it was found that reduction of the LDL cholesterol level and enhancement of GPx activity were involved in its effects.
Deep-sea water improves cardiovascular hemodynamics in Kurosawa and Kusanagi-Hypercholesterolemic (KHC) rabbits.
TLDR
It is concluded that deep-sea water could improve cardiovascular hemodynamics, even though the factors which affect the blood pressure are still unknown.
AICAR administration causes an apparent enhancement of muscle and liver insulin action in insulin-resistant high-fat-fed rats.
TLDR
A single dose of AICAR leads to an apparent enhancement in whole-body, muscle, and liver insulin action in HF rats that extends beyond the expected time of AM PK activation, and the results suggest that pharmacological activation of AMPK may have potential in treating insulin-resistant states and type 2 diabetes.
Chronic Maenesium Administration Enhances Oxidative Glucose Metabolism in Thiazide Treated Hypertensive Patients
TLDR
In newly-diagnosed untreated and thiazide treated hypertensive patients erythrocyte ion content and plasma ion and metabolite levels were determined and chronic magnesium administration improved glucose uptake, glucose metabolic clearance rate, and oxidative glucose metabolism.
Retinol-binding protein 4 and insulin resistance in lean, obese, and diabetic subjects.
TLDR
RBP4 is an adipocyte-secreted molecule that is elevated in the serum before the development of frank diabetes and appears to identify insulin resistance and associated cardiovascular risk factors in subjects with varied clinical presentations, providing a rationale for antidiabetic therapies aimed at lowering serum RBP4 levels.
High dietary calcium reduces body fat content, digestibility of fat, and serum vitamin D in rats.
TLDR
Results confirm that a high-calcium diet decreases body weight and fat content due to a lower digestible energy intake caused by increased fecal lipid and a nonsignificant reduction in gross energy intake.

TLDR
It is confirmed by epidemiologic data and recent clinical trials, which indicate that diets that include > or =3 daily servings of dairy products result in significant reductions in adipose tissue mass in obese humans in the absence of caloric restriction and markedly accelerate weight and body fat loss secondary to caloric restriction compared with diets low in dairy products.
