The protective role of flavonoids against cholestan-3β-5α-6β-triol (cholestantriol) induced toxicity was determined. The aims of the present study were: firstly, to investigate the effect of butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT, a synthetic antioxidant), myricetin, quercetin, rutin and cholestantriol...
Previous studies reported lower tissue vitamin C levels in rats following estrogen administration. This study examined the effects of two weeks of daily estrogen administration (40 μg β-estradiol 3-benzoate per kg BW) on tissue vitamin C status in male and female guinea pigs, who unlike rats,...
The effect of magnesium oxide (MgO) encapsulated (E) with a modified cellulose (Ethocel) on growth and bone minerals was assessed in weanling rats. Ethocel encapsulated Mg was added to bread flour at 10 or 30% of RDA/serving (80 mg/100g or 240 mg/100g dry bread). Bread meal, previously...
A human experiment with 9 women was carried out to measure the interrelationship between the intake of soluble dietary fibre and the faecal excretion of tocopherol. The volunteers consumed additionally 40 g oats bran per day after a control period without bran supplement. They collected the 24-h...
The effects of dietary magnesium level (0.025, 0.05, and 0.15% magnesium) on calcium absorption were studied in growing rats fed the diets containing 0.5% calcium. The apparent calcium absorption rate and the retention rate of rats fed diets containing 0.15% magnesium were significantly lower...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of a low vitamin E diet given to rat dams during gestation and lactation on the antioxidant defence enzymes and lipid peroxidation in their pups. Wistar rats were fed two different diets during gestation and lactation: a) Low vitamin E...
We examined the lipid-lowering effects of an acacia, pectin, and guar gum-based product marketed as a fiber supplement, in 50 adults (mean age= 55.4 years) who had an LDL-C ⩾ 4.1 mmol/l (160 mg/dl), or ⩾ 3.4 mmol/l (130 mg/dl) if at least two coronary risk factors were present. All subjects...
Determination of trace element absorption using enriched stable isotopic tracers and faecal monitoring has required 5–10 days collection of faecal output. In this study, the possibility of using rare earths as non-absorbable markers for measurement of the intestinal uptake of iron and zinc with...
A comprehensive survey of studies dealing with calcium and phosphorus in breast milk, carried out over the last 50 years, shows a wide variability in the concentrations of these elements. Calcium concentrations tended to have higher variation than phosphorus concentrations. The means of calcium...
Recent studies indicate that the growth status of Asian children has improved considerably. However, One major concern is that the excessive weight gain during infancy could increase adiposity and could lead to childhood obesity. The purpose of this study was to investigate the growth pattern of...
