This work is aimed to evaluate the nutritional composition, and the techno-functional and in vitro physiological properties of flours made using six different insect species and the sensorial feasibility of including them in bakery products. The insect flours exhibited high protein and fat contents as their main components, highlighting the presence of chitin in ant samples. The techno-functional properties showed high oil holding, swelling, and emulsifying capacities in all the analysed insect ...

The dietary phytochemical thymoquinone (TQ), belonging to the family of quinones, mainly obtained from the black and angular seeds of Nigella sativa, is one of the promising monoterpenoid hydrocarbons, which has been receiving massive attention for its therapeutic potential and pharmacological properties. It plays an important role as a chemopreventive and therapeutic agent in the treatment of various diseases and illnesses. The aim of this review is to present a summary of the most recent liter...

The phytochemical profiles, antioxidant activity and antiproliferative mechanism of two goji berry varieties were investigated in the present study. In contrast to Lycium barbarum L. (LB), Lycium ruthenicum Murr. (LRM) showed stronger antioxidant activity evaluated by ORAC, PSC and CAA assays, which might be attributed to its higher total phenolics and total flavonoids. However, LB contains greater contents of VE and carotenoids compared to LRM, which may endow LB with other unique functions ins...

Ursolic acid (UA) shows an effect on obesity and related metabolic diseases, but its mechanism of action remains unclear. We found that UA clearly reduced the body weight and adipose tissue mass and improved the glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity in obese male mice. UA treatment significantly reduced the volume and weights of the epididymal white adipose tissue (eWAT) and inguinal subcutaneous white adipose tissue (igSWAT) of HFD-fed mice, respectively. UA also decreased the expression of...
The intra-amniotic administration approach has been used to evaluate the effects of plant origin prebiotics on intestinal health and on brush border membrane functionality and morphology. Prebiotics are fermentable dietary fibers, which can positively affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and activity of colon bacteria, thus improving intestinal health. The consumption of prebiotics increases digestive tract motility, which leads to hyperplasia and/or hypertrophy of intestinal ce...

Fractures are the most common large-organ, traumatic injury in humans. The fracture healing stage includes the inflammatory stage (0-5d), cartilage callus stage (5-14d) and hard callus stage (14-21d). All mice underwent open tibial fracture surgery and were treated with saline, Glu or SCII for 21d. Calluses were harvested 5d, 10d and 21d after fracture. Compared with the model group, SCII significantly decreased TNF-α and increased aggrecan serum levels by 5d. H&E results showed that fibrous cal...

Despite the health benefits of Vitis vinifera L. leaves, its anti-obesity potential has not been fully explored. In this work, we showed that Vitis vinifera L. leaf extract (VLE) inhibits the pancreatic lipase activity. Intragastric administration of VLE to mice led to a significant decrease in the body weight, tissue fat accumulation, levels of cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein and triglyceride compared to mice fed with high fat diet. We also found a lower level of neuropeptide-Y (NPY) in th...

Prolonged high-fat diet (HFD) feeding impairs cognitive function in rodents. However, the mechanism of caloric restriction (CR) for remedying HFD-induced cognitive dysfunction remains elusive. In the present study, we investigated the effect of CR on HFD-induced cognitive dysfunction and its possible mechanism. BALB/c mice were fed with HFD for 16 weeks and subsequently subjected to CR for 12 weeks. After cognitive function was evaluated by behavioral tests such as Morris water maze and three-ch...

Depression is an important global health issue that is associated with serious physical and mental health consequences. The field of nutritional psychiatry has generated observational and efficacy data supporting a role for healthy dietary patterns in depression. Here, we aim to evaluate the effects of high-fat diet (HFD) consumption on depressive-like behaviors. BALB/c mice were grouped randomly: control, chronic restraint stress (CRS), HFD and CRS + HFD groups. The depressive-like behavior was...

Ten new polyisoprenylated benzophenone derivatives, 4,8-epi-uralione F (1), 4,8-epi-uralione G (2), uralione S (3), coccinone J (4), 6-epi-coccinone C (5), coccinone I (6), 36-hydroxy-guttiferone J (7), multiflorone I (8), garciniagifolone F (9) and 36-hydroxy-garciniagifolone F (10), were isolated from the fruits of Garcinia cambogia, along with seven known analogues. The structures of the new compounds were established based on the detailed analysis of 1D and 2D nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR...
