|Impact of trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid on interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-8 and adipogenic genes in cultures of human adipose tissue explants
|| "Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, currently ranking second among causes of preventable deaths. Our research group has shown in cultures of differentiated human adipocytes that 30 uM trans-10, cis-12 Conjugated Linoleic ...
|The antiobesity mechanism of conjugated linoleic acid
||Given the steady rise in obesity worldwide, it is important to identify dietary compounds that prevent adiposity. One dietary strategy is supplementation with conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which has been demonstrated to reduce body fat mass. Howeve...
|Grape powder extract (GPE) attenuates markers of inflammation in human macrophages.
||Obesity is linked to chronic inflammation in white adipose tissue (WAT) which is exacerbated by infiltrating macrophages (MΦ)s. Grape powder extract (GPE) contains polyphenols that have the potential to prevent this inflammatory response that c...
|Grape polyphenols attenuate inflammation and insulin resistance in human adipocytes and obese mice
||Obesity is rapidly increasing worldwide among all age groups. Insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes is one of several debilitating health problems associated with obesity. An emerging feature of obesity and type 2 diabetes is their linkage with chron...
