Osteoporosis is a bone disease affecting 2 million people comprising of 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men in Canada. One possible approach to prevent this disease is to stimulate the activity of osteoblasts (bone forming cells) using food protein-derived bioactive peptides. In previous study, we identified a tripeptide LRW (Leu-Arg-Trp) from pea protein, which exerts ACE inhibitory activity. The aim of this work is to investigate the effect of LRW on promoting osteoblastic activity. The tripeptide LRW...

Objectives: Plant oil for cooking typically provides 40% to 50% of dietary fat,65% of linoleic acid,44% of α-linolenic acid and 41% of oleic acid in the Chinese diet. However, the comparative effects of fatty acids derived from plant oil on cardiovascular risk factors in Chinese are still inconclusive. Hence, the aim of this study was to investigate whether cardiovascular risk factors are altered depending on various types of plant oil such as peanut oil rich in oleic acid, corn oil rich in lino...

Deoxynivalenol (DON) is one of the most widely distributed mycotoxins in food chain, and the protective effect of kaempferol (KAM) pretreatment against the barrier dysfunction induced by DON in a Caco-2 cell model was investigated using a proteomic approach. The results showed that after KAM pretreatment, both the number of down- and up-regulated differentially expressed proteins were significantly lower than those in DON group. Gene Ontology analysis revealed differentially expressed proteins w...

This systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) was conducted to summarize the effect of almond intake on anthropometric indices in adult subjects. We searched PubMed, Scopus, ISI Web of Science, Cochrane Library, and Google Scholar databases until January 2020 to identify relevant RCTs. Data was reported as weighted mean differences (WMDs) and standard deviations (SDs) to show the magnitude of effects for almond on body weight (BW), body mass index (BMI), waist c...

Chinese sumac (Rhus chinensis Mill.) fruits are traditionally used as a condiment and herb. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevention of ethanol extract from Chinese sumac fruits against CCl4-induced liver fibrosis in mice and to delineate the underlying mechanisms. Results showed that the ethanol extract substantially decreased AST, ALT, MDA and hydroxyprolin (HYP); restored GSH, SOD and CAT; and prevented liver fibrosis induced by CCl4. Further investigated results illuminated that ...
Background and Aims: We assess the effects of probiotic therapy for 8 weeks on cardiometabolic variables and autonomic function in women with medical diagnostic for arterial hypertension. Methods and Results: Forty women with arterial hypertension, 20–50 years, were assigned to two groups in this randomized, triple-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Patients in the probiotic group received daily sachet containing Lactobacillus para casei LPC-37, Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001, Lactobacillu...

Background: Samsoeum (SSE), a Korean medicine, has been used to treat upper respiratory infection including residual coughs after catching a cold, and colds in patients with gastrointestinal disorder. In this study, we investigated the inhibitory effect of SSE against lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced bronchitis and characterized its optimal dosing range based on the improvement of SSE concentrations. Materials and methods: Male Sprague Dawley rats were intra-nasally administered LPS on day 0, 3 ...

Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element in human and sows, having a biological function mediated in part by its incorporation into selenoproteins. This study was conducted to investigate the effects of maternal 2-hydroxy-4-methylselenobutanoic acid (HMSeBA), an organic Se source, on reproductive performance, antioxidant capacity and inflammatory status of sows and their offspring. Forty-three Landrace × Yorkshire sows were randomly allocated to receive one of the following three diets during...

Antibacterial peptide CM4 (ABP-CM4) is a small cationic peptide with broad-spectrum activities against bacteria, fungi and tumor cells, which may possibly be used as an antimicrobial agent. In this study, a C-terminal amidated antibacterial peptide ABP-CM4 (ABP-CM4N) with the strongest antibacterial activity was obtained through screening the antibacterial activities of ABP-CM4 with different modification. The minimal inhibitory concentration of ABP-CM4N was 8 µM against P. aeruginosa (ATCC 2785...
In this study, soluble dietary fiber (SDF, including oligosaccharides and polysaccharides) of soybean residue (SR) fermented by Neurospora crassa was used as a research object. In vitro fermentation technology was used to analyze the fermentation properties of SDF from fermented soybean residue (FSR). Moreover, the effects of SDF from FSR on the composition and diversity of intestinal microflora of rats were studied by high-throughput sequencing technology. Results showed that the SDF content of...
