Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a metabolic disorder caused by excess consumption of hypercaloric foods. Guavira (Campomanesia sp.) pulp has broad technological applicability, yet the peel and seeds are considered industrial residue. The objective of this unprecedented study was to evaluate the effects of the flour from guavira's industrial residue (GF) consumption in rats fed with hypercaloric diet (HD). During 65 days, 50 rats were separated into a control group: 1%, 2%, 4% and 8… Expand


Carbohydrate intake and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: fructose as a weapon of mass destruction.
New animal studies provided additional evidence on the role of carbohydrate-induced DNL and the gut microbiome in NAFLD and the lipogenic and proinflammatory effects of fructose appear to be due to transient ATP depletion by its rapid phosphorylation within the cell and from its ability to raise intracellular and serum uric acid levels.

Anti-diabetic effects of Campomanesia xanthocarpa (Berg) leaf decoction
Results suggest that C. xanthocarpa leaf decoction (20g/L) might be useful for diabetes mellitus management, but further pharmacological and toxicological studies are needed. Expand
Myricetin Ameliorates Liver Steatosis in Diabetic Obese Mice
Investigation of the protective effect of myricetin against fatty liver in diabetic obese mice found it significantly reduced ALT activities compared with the control group, suggesting it may protect against liver cirrhosis in the absence of alcohol abuse. Expand
Regressive Effect of Myricetin on Hepatic Steatosis in Mice Fed a High-Fat Diet
The data indicated that myricetin might represent an effective therapeutic agent to treat HFD-induced hepatic steatosis via activating the Nrf2 pathway and the PPAR signaling pathway. Expand
Effect of a high fat, high sucrose diet on the promotion of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in male rats: the ameliorative role of three natural compounds
It is shown that an HFS diet is able to promote NAFLD, and the results suggest that CA and BB are promising complementary supplements that can ameliorate the metabolic disorders associated with an H FS diet; however, Q requires further investigation. Expand
Effects of Natural Products on Fructose-Induced Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)
The natural products (e.g., curcumin, resveratrol, and (−)-epicatechin) and their mechanisms of ameliorating fructose-induced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease over the past years are reviewed to shed light on studies aiming to discover new drugs for NAFLD. Expand
[Effects of quercetin on serum levels of resistin and IL-18 and on insulin resistance in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease rats].
Quercetin treatment reduces levels of inflammatory cytokines and improves lipid peroxidation and IR in NAFLD rats, and its beneficial effects appear to increase with higher dosage. Expand

Increased fiber intake and intake of more fiber than the currently recommended level (14 g/1,000 kcal) may provide greater health benefits, including reducing low-grade inflammation. Expand
Characterization of antioxidant polyphenols from Myrciaria jaboticaba peel and their effects on glucose metabolism and antioxidant status: A pilot clinical study.
Brazilian berries, such as Myrciaria jaboticaba (jaboticaba), are good sources of polyphenols with a recognized function in oxidative stress attenuation proved in non-clinical studies and ellagitannins were the main contributors to the total antioxidant capacity. Expand
