    • Food & Function
    • Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a progressive disease that significantly endangers human health, where metabolism may drive pathogenesis: a shift from mitochondrial oxidation to glycolysis occurs in diseased pulmonary vessels and the right ventricle. An increase in pulmonary vascular resistance in patients with heart failure with a preserved ejection fraction portends a poor prognosis.

  11. Gut microbiota derived structural changes of phenolic compounds from colored rice and its corresponding fermentation property

    • Fri, 09/30/2022 - 04:00
    • Food & Function
    • The influence of phenolic compounds extracts from three colored rice cultivars on gut microbiota was investigated. The results revealed that protocatechuic acid, chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid and p-coumaric acid were the major metabolites after gut microbiota fermentation. The existence of phenolic compounds led to significantly decreased ratio of Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes, while the abundance of Proteobacteria decreased.

  14. Maternal stress in the postpartum period is associated with altered human milk fatty acid composition

    • Fri, 09/30/2022 - 04:00
    • Clinical Nutrition
    • Background & Aims Maternal stress in the postpartum period affects not only the mother, but also her newborn child who is at increased risk for a wide range of disorders later in life. The mechanisms underlying transmission of maternal stress to the child remain elusive. Human milk (HM) is a potential candidate and is an important source of fatty acid (FA), which are crucial for child (neuro)development.

  16. Arginyl-fructosyl-glucose, a Major Maillard Reaction Product of Red Ginseng, Mitigates Cisplatin-evoked Intestinal Toxicity in Vivo and in Vitro

    • Fri, 09/30/2022 - 04:00
    • Food & Function
    • Cisplatin-evoked profound gastrointestinal symptomatology is one of the most common side effects of chemotherapy drugs, further causing gastrointestinal cell damage, diarrhea and vomiting. Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer, a widely used medicinal and edible plant in China, shows many pharmacological activities. Nevertheless, the role of non-saponin is little known and has great potential in cisplatin treatment severe toxic side effects is broad.

    • Fri, 09/30/2022 - 04:00
    • Food & Function
    • The chemotherapeutic drug irinotecan and its active metabolite SN-38 have been linked to the development of off-target gastrointestinal toxicity and inflammation, termed gastrointestinal mucositis (GIM). Flavonoids possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects in models of gastrointestinal inflammation; however, few studies have investigated their potential in ameliorating chemotherapy-induced GIM.

    • Background Globally, unhealthy diet is one of the leading global risks to health, thus it is central to consider aspects of the food environment that are modifiable and may enable healthy eating. Food retail data can be used to present and facilitate analyses of food environments that in turn may direct strategies towards improving dietary patterns among populations.

  21. Astaxanthin Attenuates Irradiation-induced Osteoporosis in Mice Through Inhibiting Oxidative Stress, Osteocytes Senescence, and SASP

    • Wed, 09/28/2022 - 04:00
    • Food & Function
    • Radiation therapy (RT) is a crucial part of many treatment plans for cancer patients. However, major undesired side effects are associated with this treatment, including impaired bone remodeling and bone loss. Irradiation induces bone loss due to promoted osteoclastic bone resorption and reduced osteoblastic bone formation. Astaxanthin (AST) is a natural antioxidant with anti-oxidative and anti-aging properties.

  22. Determining the metabolic fate of human milk oligosaccharides: it may just be more complex than you think?

    • Wed, 09/28/2022 - 04:00
    • Gut Microbiome
    • Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are a class of structurally diverse and complex unconjugated glycans present in breast milk, which act as selective substrates for several genera of select microbes and inhibit the colonisation of pathogenic bacteria. Yet, not all infants are breastfed, instead being fed with formula milks which may or may not contain HMOs.

  23. Physical barrier effects of dietary fibers on lowering starch digestibility

    • Wed, 09/28/2022 - 04:00
    • Current Opinion in Food Science
    • Dietary intervention with low glycemic response has been suggested to prevent the development of diabetes mellitus. As an anti-digestive factor, dietary fiber (DF) becomes a priority for design of foods with low glycemic response due to its ability to limit starch digestion. In this paper, the physical barrier effects of DF on lowering starch digestibility were discussed in the aspects of viscosity effect, physical embedding, and cell wall integrity.

  24. Health benefits of dietary polyphenols: Insight into interindividual variability in absorption and metabolism

    • Wed, 09/28/2022 - 04:00
    • Current Opinion in Food Science
    • Dietary polyphenol intake provides beneficial effects on human health, however, the high interindividual variability in response to polyphenols consumption may affect the final evaluation of clinical outcomes. After ingestion, polyphenols are extensively metabolized by the host and the gut microbiota. There is evidence that metabolism and absorption in the interindividual variability play a key role in health effects of polyphenols.

  25. The Effects and Cell Barrier Mechanism of Main Dietary Nutrients on Intestinal Barrier

    • Wed, 09/28/2022 - 04:00
    • Current Opinion in Food Science
    • The intestinal barrier plays a critical role in the health of the body because it not only protects against pathogens but also allows beneficial small molecule components to enter the body. Dietary components also directly interact with the gastrointestinal tract and therefore influence the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract.
