Spirulina extract can prevent the increase of fat in the blood by inhibiting lipid metabolism and absorption

(Natural News) People with metabolic syndrome may benefit from taking spirulina extracts. In a recent study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements, it was found that spirulina extract may be used to improve metabolism by reducing the absorption of lipids in people with metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of metabolic disorders. It...

ConclusionThe present results demonstrate that renal lipid accumulation and glutathione depletion-driven renal injury in pregnant rats is accompanied by increased activity of ADA/XO/UA pathway. The findings also suggest that GLT would confer protection against renal injury by protecting against lipid accumulation and glutathionedepletion, at least in part, through suppression of ADA/XO/UA pathway.

This study aimed to explore the genetic predisposition of the apelin-APJ system to metabolic syndrome. Materials And Methods: 1005 subjects were enrolled, including 448 metabolic syndrome patients and 557 controls. Seven single nucleotide polymorphisms, including rs909656, rs5975126, and rs3115757 of the apelin gene and rs7119375, rs10501367, rs9943582 and rs11544374 of the APJ gene, were genotyped. Results: For males, apelin-36 were higher in metabolic syndrome subjects compared with controls (p

Authors: Iwasaki T, Hirose A, Azuma T, Ohashi T, Watanabe K, Obora A, Deguchi F, Kojima T, Isozaki A, Tomofuji T Abstract Dental caries could be a risk factor for metabolic syndrome (MetS); however, there is limited evidence of such a relationship in the literature. This cross-sectional study investigated the relationships among dental caries experience, dietary habits, and MetS in Japanese adults. A total of 937 participants aged 40-74 years underwent a health check, including dental examination. Decayed, missing, and filled teeth (DMFT) were used as an index of caries experience. The mean DMFT score was 14, and 1...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewThe goal of this review is to explore the potential mechanisms behind the observed phenomenon of sexual dimorphism in cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk among vegetarians. To date, research has primarily focused on the association between vegetarian diets and CVD risk factors and events. However, few publications have explored gender differences in the point estimates of risk of CVD in vegetarians. Current data suggest that following a vegetarian diet is associated with a larger CVD risk reduction in males.Recent FindingsAlthough not a completely novel observation, recent systematic reviews have...

We examined small study effects and excess significance. We did analyses under credibility ceilings. This review is registered with PROSPERO, number CRD42018091704.Findings46 eligible articles yielded data on 67 environmental risk factors (544 212 cases, 81 708 787 individuals) and 52 biomarkers (15 614 cases, 15 433 controls). Evidence of association was convincing for maternal age of 35 years or over (relative risk [RR] 1·31, 95% CI 1·18–1·45), maternal chronic hypertension (odds ratio [OR] 1·48, 1·29–1·70), maternal gestational hypertension (OR 1·37,...

Authors: Alswat KA, Fallatah HI, Al-Judaibi B, Elsiesy HA, Al-Hamoudi WK, Qutub AN, Alturaify N, Al-Osaimi A Abstract Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a major national and international health burden. It is one of the most common liver diseases worldwide and the most common cause of abnormal liver enzymes in many developed countries. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is also known as an important cause of cryptogenic cirrhosis and second leading cause for liver transplantation. It is commonly associated with metabolic syndrome. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is the progressive phenotype of NAFLD. ...
