The effects of dietary plant-origin glucosylceramide (GlcCer) on symptoms similar to those of inflammatory bowel diseasewere investigated in dextran sulfate sodium salt (DSS)-treated mice. Dietary GlcCer suppressed decreases in body weight due to DSS administration. To determine its effects on the colon, we examined its surface under a microscope following toluidine blue staining. Dietary GlcCer decreased DSS-induced chorionic crypt injury and elevated myeloperoxidase levels. Moreover, dietary… CONTINUE READING
