Background: The expression of myocardial infarction and cerebral atherosclerosis is responsible for most cases in the United States and Western Europe. Research shows that over the past decade in most countries the use of alternative therapies and especially herbal therapy and dietary supplements to improve a variety of illnesses, including high blood fat, has increased. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the effect of different doses of turnip juice on blood lipid changes in… Expand
Effects of sprouted turnips seeds as a hypolipidemic and anti-obesity agents on adult human females
The present study was carried out to know the effect of sprouted turnip seeds on anthropometric measurements, blood lipids, liver enzymes, serum glucose and thyroxin stimulating Hermon (TSH).TheExpand
Phytochemical characterization of turnip greens (Brassica rapa ssp. rapa): A systematic review.
TLDR
Emerging evidence suggests the Turnip as a substantial source of diverse bioactive compounds, however, detailed investigation on the pure compounds derived from Turnip green, their bioavailability, transport and metabolism after consumption is further needed. Expand

TLDR
TE may exert an antidiabetic effect in type 2 diabetic mice by enhancing the glucose and lipid metabolism. Expand
EFFECT OF DIETARY OLIVE OIL/CHOLESTEROL ON SERUM LIPOPROTEINS, LIPID PEROXIDATION, AND ATHEROSCLEROSIS IN RABBITS
TLDR
This findings showed preventive effect of olive oil against atherosclerosis which is independent of plasma lipoprotein effect, and suggested that probably olive oil acts on arteries directly. Expand
Influence of dietary n-3 fatty acids on myocardial ischemia and reperfusion.
TLDR
A protective effect for dietary MO in myocardial ischemia-reperfusion is suggested, which may involve both an early reduction in leukocyte infiltration and a reduction in the incidence of fatal arrhythmias. Expand
Silibinin, a plant extract with antioxidant and membrane stabilizing properties, protects exocrine pancreas from cyclosporin A toxicity
TLDR
Silibinin inhibits glucose-stimulated insulin release in vitro, while not affecting blood glucose concentration in vivo, which could be useful in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and protects the exocrine pancreas from CiA toxicity. Expand
Comparative effects of feeding different fats on fatty acid composition of major individual phospholipids of rat hearts.
TLDR
Results show that olive oil is as effective as fish oil in reducing heart cholesterol content and support earlier works suggesting the role ofFish oil in preventing cardiovascular disease. Expand
HPLC-DAD/MS characterization of flavonoids and hydroxycinnamic derivatives in turnip tops (Brassica rapa L. Subsp. sylvestris L.).
TLDR
Flavonoids and hydroxycinnamic derivatives of turnip tops were characterized for the first time in four samples from different origins and showed a high polyphenols content and a good antiradical activity, determined with the DPPH* test. Expand
Phytosterols partially explain differences in cholesterol metabolism caused by corn or olive oil feeding.
TLDR
It is suggested that phytosterols are partly responsible for the differences in plasma cholesterol levels and synthesis observed between polyunsaturated and monounsaturated oils. Expand
Lipoprotein lipase and lipolysis: central roles in lipoprotein metabolism and atherogenesis.

TLDR
It is apparent that the lipolysis reaction is only partially understood, and several factors other than LPL are critical modulators of this process, in part, because the reaction requires the lipoproteins to interact with the arterial or capillary wall. Expand
Weight-reducing effects of the plasma protein encoded by the obese gene.
TLDR
Injection of wild-type mice twice daily with the mouse protein resulted in a sustained 12 percent weight loss, decreased food intake, and a reduction of body fat from 12.2 to 0.7 percent, suggesting that the OB protein serves an endocrine function to regulate body fat stores. Expand
Ontogenic profiling of glucosinolates, flavonoids, and other secondary metabolites in Eruca sativa (salad rocket), Diplotaxis erucoides (wall rocket), Diplotaxis tenuifolia (wild rocket), and Bunias orientalis (Turkish rocket).
TLDR
All rocket tissues, except roots, contained significant levels of polyglycosylated flavonoids, with/without hydroxycinnamoyl acylation and the core aglycones were kaempferol, quercetin, and isorhamnetin. Expand
