Background A Mediterranean diet is favourable for cardiometabolic risk. Objective To examine the residual effect of a green Mediterranean diet, further enriched with green plant-based foods and lower meat intake, on cardiometabolic risk. Methods For the DIRECT-PLUS parallel, randomised clinical trial we assigned individuals with abdominal obesity/dyslipidaemia 1:1:1 into three diet groups: healthy dietary guidance (HDG), Mediterranean and green Mediterranean diet, all combined with physical… 

The effects of the Green-Mediterranean diet on cardiometabolic health are linked to gut microbiome modifications: a randomized controlled trial

A mediating role of the gut microbiome in the beneficial effects of the Green-MED diet enriched with Mankai and green tea on cardiometabolic risk factors is supported.

Improvement of glycemic indices by a hypocaloric legume-based DASH diet in adults with type 2 diabetes: a randomized controlled trial

The DASH diet, enrich in legumes, could improve the glycemic parameters in participants with type 2 diabetes, regardless of having rs7903146 risk or non-risk allele.

One size does not fit all; practical, personal tailoring of the diet to NAFLD patients

There is strong evidence for the independent protective association of NAFLD with a diet based on healthy eating patterns of minimally‐processed foods, low in sugar and saturated fat, high in polyphenols, and healthy types of fats, which leads to the conclusion that a Mediterranean diet should serve as a basis that can be restructured into other kinds of diets.

A Review Study of a Green Diet and Healthy Ageing

A brief review of the recent advance of knowledge in diet and health, its effects on the elderly and the significance of a green diet on healthy ageing is highlighted.

Daily Intake of Lemna minor or Spinach as Vegetable Does Not Show Significant Difference on Health Parameters and Taste Preference

It is concluded that 11 consecutive days intake of 170 g fresh weight L. minor plants as a cooked vegetable does not result in any adverse effect in healthy adult subjects.

The Metabolomic-Gut-Clinical Axis of Mankai Plant-Derived Dietary Polyphenols

The Mankai new plant is rich in various unique potent polyphenols, potentially affecting the metabolomic-gut-clinical axis.

A controlled human intervention trial to study protein quality by amino acid uptake kinetics with the novel Lemna protein concentrate as case study

The LPC consumption resulted in a significant lower postprandial increase in almost all individual amino acids, total amino acid (TAA) and total essential amino acids (TEAA) compared to WPC based on area under the curve (AUC) calculations.

The effect of 18 months lifestyle intervention on brain age assessed with resting-state functional connectivity

The results suggest that lifestyle intervention has beneficial effects on the trajectory of brain aging, and it is shown that lower consumption of processed food, sweets, and beverages were associated with attenuated brain age.

Breast Cancer Diet “BCD”: A Review of Healthy Dietary Patterns to Prevent Breast Cancer Recurrence and Reduce Mortality

Obesity and overweight, low rates of physical activity, and hormone receptor-status are associated with poorer BC-treatment outcomes and there is a lack of evidence to suggest which dietary pattern is the best approach for weight management in BCS.

Excess comorbidities in gout: the causal paradigm and pleiotropic approaches to care

Sodium–glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, with their highly pleiotropic CMR and urate-lowering benefits, are an attractive alternative or adjunct therapy for patients with gout, although more evidence of their effects in gout populations is needed.



Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease with a Mediterranean Diet Supplemented with Extra‐Virgin Olive Oil or Nuts

In this study involving persons at high cardiovascular risk, the incidence of major cardiovascular events was lower among those assigned to a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra‐virgin olive oil or nuts than among those assign to a reduced‐fat diet.

The Effect of Wolffia globosa Mankai, a Green Aquatic Plant, on Postprandial Glycemic Response: A Randomized Crossover Controlled Trial

Wolffia globosa Mankai duckweed may serve as an emerging alternative plant protein source with potential beneficial postprandial glycemic effects as well as a novel green aquatic plant thought to provide a dietary source for high-quality protein.

Effects of plant-based diets on plasma lipids.

Weight loss with a low-carbohydrate, Mediterranean, or low-fat diet.

BACKGROUND Trials comparing the effectiveness and safety of weight-loss diets are frequently limited by short follow-up times and high dropout rates. METHODS In this 2-year trial, we randomly

Effect of Distinct Lifestyle Interventions on Mobilization of Fat Storage Pools: CENTRAL Magnetic Resonance Imaging Randomized Controlled Trial

An 18-month randomized controlled trial among 278 sedentary adults with abdominal obesity or dyslipidemia to assess whether distinct lifestyle strategies can differentially affect specific body adipose depots found the MED/LC diet mobilizes specific ectopic fat depots, and exercise has an independent contribution to VAT loss.

Effect of a Lifestyle Intervention Program With Energy-Restricted Mediterranean Diet and Exercise on Weight Loss and Cardiovascular Risk Factors: One-Year Results of the PREDIMED-Plus Trial

PREDIMED-Plus intensive lifestyle intervention for 12 months was effective in decreasing adiposity and improving cardiovascular risk factors in overweight/obese older adults with metabolic syndrome, as well as in individuals with or at risk for diabetes.

Weight loss with a low-carbohydrate, Mediterranean, or low-fat diet.

The absence of biologically significant weight loss (2 to 4% after 2 years) highlights the fact that energy restriction and weight loss in themselves may minimally affect metabolic outcomes and that lifestyle changes must incorporate physical activity to optimize the reduction in the risk of chronic disease.

Influence of Green Leafy Vegetables in Diets with an Elevated ω-6:ω-3 Fatty Acid Ratio on Rat Blood Pressure, Plasma Lipids, Antioxidant Status and Markers of Inflammation

It is suggested that collard greens, purslane and SPG have the potential to decrease risks for cardiovascular disease (CVD) associated with the consumption of diets with an elevated ω-6:ω-3 FAR.
