The last man that used the words “I love you” used them to control me.  He used them by not saying it back, ever, when I said it.  He used them by smugly making me say it when he wanted to hear it.  He used them by only ever saying them himself when I would work up the strength to try to end things.   He used them to make me feel bad when I didn’t “behave” how he wanted me to.  He used them to convince me of a false future that he had no intention of ever providing.  The words “I love you” meant absolutely nothing.

In this study, 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-NMR) was used to examine the effects of glutamine on plasma metabolites in burned rats and to explore the underlying mechanisms. After burn injury, the rats exhibited significant increases in resting energy expenditure (REE) and hypercatabolism, and anabolism was inhibited. The levels of metabolites that reflect the proteolysis of skeletal muscle, such as alanine, histidine, leucine, valine, 3-methylhistidine and creatine, were significantly increased. In addition, the burned rats exhibited energy synthesis dysfunction, as evidenced by a decrease in the ATP conc...

Publication date: Available online 15 January 2020Source: International Journal of PharmaceuticsAuthor(s): Kaichao Song, Meng Xin, Fan Zhang, Wenjing Xie, Mingyue Sun, Xianggen WuAbstractRebaudioside A (RA) self-assembled into ultrasmall nanomicelles can be utilized as ocular drug delivery system; nevertheless, the therapeutic efficacy of RA micelles has not evaluated thus far. In this manuscript, the RA micelles are thought to strengthen the therapeutic effects of pterostilbene (Pt). Results showed that Pt can be highly encapsulated into RA micelles with ultrasmall particle sizes (3.99 ± 0.03 nm) with a uniform dis...
