The triglyceride-glucose index (TyG index) is a tool for insulin resistance evaluation, however, little is known about its association with coronary artery disease (CAD), which is the major cardiovascular death cause, and what factors may be associated with TyG index. To evaluate the association between the TyG index and the prevalence of CAD phases, as well as cardiovascular risk factors. The baseline data of patients in secondary care in cardiology from Brazilian Cardioprotective Nutritional P...
Abstract Background Appropriate dietary recommendations represent a key part of secondary prevention in cardiovascular disease (CVD). Objective We evaluated the effectiveness of the implementation of a nutritional program on quality of diet, cardiovascular events and death in patients with established CVD. Design In this open-label, multicentre trial conducted in 35 sites in Brazil, we randomly assigned (1:1) patients aged 45 years or older to receive either the BALANCE Program (experimental gro...

ABSTRACTThe metabolic effects of cranberry and blueberry consumption on glycemic control have been evaluated in vitro and in animal models as well as in human studies, although findings have not been systematically reviewed yet. Therefore, a systematic review was carried out of relevant randomized clinical trials (RCTs) in order to assess the effect of berries (blueberry and cranberry) consumption on type 2 diabetes (T2DM) glycemic control. Some evidences were also discussed on the anti-diabetic...

Abstract Yacon ( Smallanthus sonchifolius (Poepp.) H. Rob) is a natural source of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) studied for its potential as a functional food for prevention and management of chronic diseases, in part associated with its positive impact on glycemic response and body weight. However, yacon beneficial effect on glucose response and food intake control are still controversial. We investigated the acute effect of yacon consumption on glycemic response, subjective appetitive sensation...

ABSTRACTThe American cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is one of the fruits containing antioxidants in great quantity and of high quality. From recent research, it is evident that both cranberry and its products, when consumed chronically or acutely, boost the antioxidant effect. Likewise, most studies revealed the anti-inflammatory potential of the cranberry polyphenols. Both effects exert direct action mechanisms, revealed by the ability of the polyphenols to remove the reactive oxygen species...

ABSTRACTThe objective of this review was to verify the effects of avocado consumption on cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) risk factors. A systematic search was conducted in electronic databases using the descriptor avocado, combined with CVD, monosaturated fat, antioxidant, lipoprotein, and inflammation, and their respective terms in Spanish. The review was carried out in pairs, following the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis) recommendations. Initially, 23...

Abstract Toll-like receptors (TLR) mediate infection-induced inflammation and sterile inflammation by endogenous molecules. Among the TLR family, TLR4 is the best understood. However, while its downstream signaling pathways have been well defined, not all ligands of TLR4 are currently known. Current evidence suggests that saturated fatty acids (SFA) act as non-microbial TLR4 agonists, and trigger its inflammatory response. Thus, our present review provides a new perspective on the potential mech...
