Background It is known that obesity, sodium intake, and alcohol consumption influence blood pressure. In this clinical trial, Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, we assessed the effects of dietary patterns on blood pressure. Methods We enrolled 459 adults with systolic blood pressures of less than 160 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressures of 80 to 95 mm Hg. For three weeks, the subjects were fed a control diet that was low in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products, with a fat content typical ...

Throughout history, nuts have been a staple food providing energy, protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Today, nuts are classified as part of the USDA Food Guide Pyramid's Meat/Meat Alternate Group. Foods in this group contribute protein as well as important vitamins and minerals to the diet. Nuts are also being studied for their potential health benefits. Research suggests that there may be a connection between frequent nut consumption and a reduced incidence of coronary hear...

Abstract: A high plasma concentration of lipoprotein Lp(a) is now considered to be a major and independent risk factor for cerebro- and cardiovascular atherothrombosis. The mechanism by which Lp(a) may favour this pathological state may be related to its particular structure, a plasminogen-like glycoprotein, apo(a), that is disulfide linked to the apo B100 of an atherogenic LDL-like particle. Apo(a) exists in several isoforms defined by a variable number of copies of plasminogen-like kringle 4 a...

Background: Epidemiologic studies show an inverse relation between nut consumption and coronary heart disease. Objective: We determined the effects of walnut intake on plasma fatty acids, lipoproteins, and lipoprotein subclasses in patients with combined hyperlipidemia. Design: Participants sequentially adhered to the following diets: 1) a habitual diet (HD), 2) a habitual diet plus walnuts (HD+W), 3) a low-fat diet (LFD), and 4) a low-fat diet plus walnuts (LFD+W). Results: In 13 postmenopausal...

To determine the impact of dietary patterns on the control of hypertension we studied the subgroup of 133 participants with systolic blood pressure (BP) of 140 to 159 mm Hg and/or diastolic BP of 90 to 95 mm Hg enrolled in the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) study. Participants were fed a control diet for a 3-week period and were then randomized to receive for 8 weeks either the control diet; a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, but otherwise similar to control; or a combination ...

A 1999 was a milestone for high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol research. First proposed as a risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD) in the 1950s, it was not until 1975, when Miller and Miller1 published an influential article detailing how HDL might be involved in reverse cholesterol transport, that HDL began to attract substantial attention. In the next 25 years epidemiologic data from prospective studies established low HDL cholesterol as a major independent risk factor for CHD.2 ...

Elevated plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) is a risk factor for occlusive cardiovascular disease (CVD). This concept is based on the observations of premature vascular disease in patients with homocystinuria, the relation between tHcy and both clinical CVD as well as preclinical atherosclerotic disease, the relation between tHcy in children and CVD in their parents or relatives, and reduction in CVD or surrogate endpoints after tHcy-lowering intervention with B vitamins. Plausible mechanisms incl...

The walnut (Juglans spp.) is an appreciated nut that belongs to the Juglandaceae family. The fruit includes four main parts: the kernel, the skin, the shell, and the green husk. It is widely cultivated due to its edible kernel. In walnut production centers, high amounts of the husk as an agro-forest waste product are produced and discarded away. Recently, it has been demonstrated that the walnut green husk could be valued as a source of different natural bioactive compounds with excellent antiox...

Recently, the authenticity of food products has become a great social concern. Considering the complexity of the food chain and that many players are involved between production and consumption; food adulteration practices are rising as it is easy to conduct fraud without being detected. This is the case for nut fruit processed products, such as almond flours, that can be adulterated with cheaper nuts (hazelnuts or peanuts), giving rise to not only economic fraud but also important effects on hu...

Walnuts (Juglans nigra) are considered to be a functional food. In the present study, twenty one macro-, micro-, and trace elements (Al, As, B, Ba, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, Pb, Se, Sr, and Zn) were selected to be determined in walnuts and walnut oils. The beneficial content of essential elements could be shown by the obtained results, the macro-elements Ca, K, Mg, and Na being present in nuts with 1062 mg/kg, 2771 mg/kg, 1426 mg/kg, and 42.3 mg/kg, respectively. Regardi...

ABSTRACTCardiovascular diseases are the underlying cause of most deaths worldwide, and they are expected to rise in the following years. Cardiovascular diseases include diseases that affect the heart, cerebral, and peripheral vessels, resulting in ischemia. On the basis of cardiovascular disease pathophysiology, there are lipoprotein metabolism abnormalities, oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, endothelium damage, and atherothrombosis. Modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular health and di...

Oil extracts from Arachis hypogea is often used clinically for the administration of exogenous hormone during assisted reproduction. But its capacity to induce follicular growth after fertilisation to maintain the formation of progesterone has not yet been clarified. We assessed the effects of peanut oil on stem cell factors (SCFs) for follicular maturation and meiotic activities in the superovulated rat. Female rats were superovulated and treated with peanut oil (S + Pn), while the controls wer...

Abstract In this study, the nutraceutical potential of two hazelnut varieties (Turkey and Italy) were examined by studying several aspects including the phytochemical properties, antioxidant potential, cell viability and ex vivo neuroprotective potential. Results showed that the Turkish hazelnut had the higher concentration of phenolic acids, flavonoids, higher antioxidant capacity and enzyme inhibition properties and lower saturated fatty acid concentration than the Italian sample. The in vivo ...

AbstractFew studies have been conducted on Stone pine (Pinus pinea) morphology, cone to kernel yield (KY) and composition. To study the species variability, a morphometric and chemical characterization of pine nuts was performed across the species distribution in Chile. Seventy-six highly productive trees were selected in three macrozones. Ten cones per tree were harvested, and cone weight, in-shell pine nut number cone−1 and size and weight of in-shell pine nuts and kernels were measured; KY wa...
