High-fat meals (HFM) induce metabolic stress, leading to the activation of protective mechanisms, including inflammation and endogenous antioxidant defences. In the present study, we investigated the effects of antioxidant-rich fruit juice drinks on the endogenous antioxidant response induced by HFM. In a double-blind, cross-over design (10 d washout), fourteen overweight volunteers were randomly assigned to one of the following interventions: HFM+500 ml placebo beverage (HFM-PB, free from… 

Effects of High Consumption of Vegetables on Clinical, Immunological, and Antioxidant Markers in Subjects at Risk of Cardiovascular Diseases

The study provides additional evidence about the uncertainty of providing a clear evidence for vegetables in modulating markers of immune function and antioxidant status and further studies are needed in order to unravel the mechanism of effect of vegetable consumption in cardiovascular prevention.

Functional Foods for Health: The Interrelated Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Role of Fruits, Vegetables, Herbs, Spices and Cocoa in Humans

This paper reviews available evidence about the effect of supplementation with selected fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices and their extracts or galenic formulation on combined markers of redox and inflammatory status in humans.

Effect of Dark Chocolate Extracts on Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate-Induced Oxidative Burst in Leukocytes Isolated by Normo-Weight and Overweight/Obese Subjects

Chocolate polyphenol extracts inhibit oxidative burst in human neutrophils and monocytes with a higher efficiency in subjects characterized by an unphysiological oxidative/inflammatory stress, such as overweight and obese.

Effects and Mechanisms of Fruit and Vegetable Juices on Cardiovascular Diseases

This review summarizes recent studies on the effects of fruit and vegetable juices on indicators of cardiovascular disease, and special attention is paid to the mechanisms of action.

Daily Grape Juice Consumption Promotes Weight Loss, Improved Stability and Reduced the DNA Damage in the Elderly

Grape juice could be an excellent option to improve quality of life in elderly and reduce weight, BMI and waist circumference, and cause more stability in the elderly.

The Postprandial Effect of Anthocyanins on Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors: a Systematic Literature Review of High-Fat Meal Challenge Studies

The most promising results were for the attenuation of deleterious postprandial effects on oxidative stress and antioxidant status, triacylglycerol and total cholesterol concentrations, vascular endothelial function and inflammatory biomarkers.

Effect of Plasma Uric Acid on Antioxidant Capacity, Oxidative Stress, and Insulin Sensitivity in Obese Subjects

It is demonstrated that circulating UA is a major antioxidant and might help protect against free-radical oxidative damage, however, oxidative stress is not a major determinant of insulin action in vivo.

Risks of Misinterpretation in the Evaluation of the Effect of Fruit-Based Drinks in Postprandial Studies

The results suggest a complex relationship between postprandial dysmetabolism, inflammation, and oxidative stress and dietary recommendations should aim to limit rather than increase sugar-sweetened beverages consumption.

Effects of Anthocyanins in Composite Meals on Cardiometabolic Outcomes—A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Feeding Trials

Anthocyanin intake did not significantly affect other markers of energy metabolism, vascular functions, oxidative stress and antioxidant status, as well as inflammatory responses, and consistent improvements were found in glycemic, gastric inhibitory peptide, interleukin-6 (IL-6), and oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) responses.



Orange juice neutralizes the proinflammatory effect of a high-fat, high-carbohydrate meal and prevents endotoxin increase and Toll-like receptor expression.

Orange juice intake with the HFHC meal prevented meal-induced oxidative and inflammatory stress, including the increase in endotoxin and TLR expression, and may help explain the mechanisms underlying postprandial oxidative stress and inflammation, pathogenesis of insulin resistance, and atherosclerosis.

High fat meal increase of IL-17 is prevented by ingestion of fruit juice drink in healthy overweight subjects.

Evidence on the role of diet in modulating IL-17 production in healthy overweight subjects is provided, for the first time, on the nutritional regulation ofIL-17 in humans.

Strawberry anthocyanin and its association with postprandial inflammation and insulin.

The strawberry beverage significantly attenuated the postprandial inflammatory response as measured by high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and IL-6 induced by the HCFM, and was also associated with a reduction in postPRandial insulin response.

Antioxidant and inflammatory response following high-fat meal consumption in overweight subjects

Present results indicate that as a consequence of an excess of dietary fat, the body responds through an inflammatory reaction, which is accompanied by an increment of endogenous antioxidant defenses, mediated by UA and SH, but not by vitamins C and E and carotenoids.

Repeated red wine consumption and changes on plasma antioxidant capacity and endogenous antioxidants (uric acid and protein thiol groups).

Antioxidant biomarkers have been assessed in eight healthy human volunteers after repeated intakes of 300 mL of red wine every day for a week after a low phenolic diet designed to prevent the phenolic compounds in wine from interfering with the phenolics from other foods or beverages.

Total antioxidant capacity of plant foods, beverages and oils consumed in Italy assessed by three different in vitro assays.

A variety of foods commonly consumed in Italy, including 34 vegetables, 30 fruits, 34 beverages and 6 vegetable oils, were analyzed using three different assays, i.e., Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC), total radical-trapping antioxidant parameter (TRAP) and ferric reducing-antioxidant power (FRAP).

Postprandial metabolic events and fruit-derived phenolics: a review of the science

The collected data suggest that consuming phenolic-rich fruits increases the antioxidant capacity of the blood, and when they are consumed with high fat and carbohydrate ‘pro-oxidant and pro-inflammatory’ meals, they may counterbalance their negative effects.

Attenuation of meal-induced inflammatory and thrombotic responses in overweight men and women after 6-week daily strawberry (Fragaria) intake. A randomized placebo-controlled trial.

These data are the first to suggest that regular consumption of strawberry, a polyphenolic- and antioxidant-rich fruit, may provide protection from HCF meal-induced increases in fibrinolytic and inflammatory factors in at-risk men and women.
