Spray dried nanoemulsions loaded with curcumin, resveratrol, and borage seed oil: The role of two different modified starches as encapsulating materials
Int J Biol Macromol. 2021 Jul 16:S0141-8130(21)01524-5. doi: 10.1016/j.ijbiomac.2021.07.076. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTRecently, food industries are directing on the promotion of innovative food matrices fortified with bioactive compounds in order to enhance the consumer's health. Octenyl succinic anhydride modified starches (OSA-MS) such as Hi-cap100 (HCP) and purity gum 2000 (PUG) were used to fabricate emulsions co-entrapped with borage seed oil (BSO), resveratrol (RES) and curcumin (CUR), which were further spray dried to obtain powders. The fabricated microcapsules loaded with BSO, RES, and CUR displayed excellent...

Haploid Plant Production in Borage (Borago officinalis L.) by Anther Culture
Methods Mol Biol. 2021;2289:237-248. doi: 10.1007/978-1-0716-1331-3_15.ABSTRACTBorage (Borago officinalis L.) is a crop with different culinary, pharmaceutical, and industrial properties. Besides, it is one of the best known sources of gamma linolenic acid (GLA). However, the variability in the levels of such active compounds, obtained from wild borage, may result in conflicting clinical trial reports, which may likely decrease the optimal efficiency of the product. On the other hand, this important medicinal plant has a multifactorial self-incompatibility system, which makes self-pollination ineffective and results in a l...

Is there a beneficial effect of gamma-linolenic acid supplementation on body fat in postmenopausal hypertensive women? A prospective randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial
Objective: Systemic arterial hypertension and obesity are major public health problems that increase risks of serious cardiovascular diseases and kidney failure as well as increase mortality. Substances that can alleviate these problems are desirable. We evaluated the beneficial effects of nutritional supplementation with gamma-linolenic acid in postmenopausal hypertensive women. Methods: This was a prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study involving 96 postmenopausal women. Participants were divided into two groups either receiving 1,000 mg of borage oil rich in gamma-linolenic acid + vi...

Use of Complementary Alternative Medicine and the Associated Factors among Patients with Depression
This study aimed to evaluate the use of CAM and its associated factors in depression. This cross-sectional study was conducted on 300 depressed patients referred to the Yasuj Neurology and Psychiatric Clinic, southern Iran, between 2019 and 2020. A valid semistructured international questionnaire was used; amongst the participants, 230 (77%) were female. The mean age of the patients was 41.47 ± 12.2 years and the mean duration of the disease was 4.49 ± 4.88 years. The prevalence of CAM use was 37.6% among the patients. The results showed a significant difference between the CAM users and nonusers regarding the disease du...

Metabolomics unveils the influence of dietary phytochemicals on residual pesticide concentrations in honey bees
In this study, we used untargeted metabolomics to investigate the impact of dietary phytochemical composition on the residual concentration of three pesticides: imidacloprid, tau-fluvalinate and tebuconazole in exposed honey bees. Honey bees were given different diets based on pollen or nectar from four plants: Reseda odorata, Borago officinalis, Phacelia tanacetifolia, and Trifolium repens for two days. Thereafter, they were orally exposed to 10 ng/bee imidacloprid or contact-exposed to 0.9 μg/bee tau-fluvalinate or 5 μg/bee tebuconazole. After 1 h of oral exposure or 24 h of contact exposure, the honey bees were anaest...
