Effect of Metaswitch® dietary supplement on anthropometric parameters, serum lipids, glucose level, oxidative stress and in vivo antioxidant properties in high fat diet-induced overweight Sprague Dawley rats

Obesity and overweight are metabolic diseases related to oxidative stress and are risk factors for several chronic diseases. In a high-fat diet-induced overweight rat model, we wanted to investigate the effects of Metaswitch dietary supplement on weight gain and associated acute metabolic changes. Methods: The female Sprague Dawley rats were divided into 6 groups. HFD treatment groups on HFD have been treated with three different daily doses of Metaswitch for three weeks. Slimrite®, a common drug, was a sample drug by another group on HFD. Rats on HFD also received cyproheptadine to boost appetite. Rats on HFD gained significant body mass in comparison to rats exposed to NCD. Among the groups, there were no significant changes in the serum lipids and glucose levels. Conclusions: In female SD rats, a 3-week HFD diet with cyproheptadine supplementation resulted in a significant increase in body weight and acute metabolic alterations, as shown by the graph.

Dietary supplement use among health care professionals enrolled in an online curriculum on herbs and dietary supplements

Background: Although many health care professionals in the United States have been trained to and recommend dietary supplements, little is known about their personal use of diet supplements and the usage that goes with them. In the last week, 81 percent of the 1249 health care professionals polled reported using a vitamin, trace, or other non-herbal dietary supplements. The factors that resulted in a rise in supplement use were older age, female, high awareness of dietary supplements, and discussing dietary supplements with patients. Conclusion Among HCPs enrolled in an on-line course on dietary supplements, women, older physicians, those with greater experience, and those who consult with patients about dietary supplements had the highest use of dietary supplements. Additional research is required to determine the effect of professionals' personal use of dietary supplements on patient contact.

Chemopreventive effects of Coltect, a novel dietary supplement, alone and in combination with 5-aminosalicylic acid in 1,2-dimethylhydrazine-induced colon cancer in rats

Coltect is a novel dietary supplement that contains curcumin, green tea, and selenomethionine. Using the 1,2-dimethylhydrazine model in rats, the present study investigated the chemopreventive effect of Coltect alone or mixed with 5-aminosalicylic acid. Methods: Coltect's effect on HT-29 CRC cells was determined by growth inhibition assay assay. Male rats were injected with DMH in vivo and treated with Coltect 150 mg/kg, 5-ASA 50 mg/kg, or their combination by oral gavage. Methylene blue staining revealed the crypt foci in Aberrant. Coltect-dependent HT-29 cells had a dose-dependent response to Coltect. The induction of mild-moderate apoptosis in cancer cells in comparison to untreated cells can be attributed to part of the growth inhibition. The Coltect factory reduced the number of small and large ACF to 5-ASA — according to 5-ASA. Conclusion: Coltect slows the proliferation of colon cancer cells, promotes apoptosis, and reduces ACF formation.

Pain reduction and improved vascular health associated with daily consumption of an anti-inflammatory dietary supplement blend

To collect objective data on pain tolerance and interference with daily life, subjective pain and daily living questionnaires were used. Results: After 8 weeks, a dramatic decrease of chronic pain was seen both at rest and in vigorous physical activity. After two weeks, plasma fibrinogen, von Willebrand Factor, and serum matrix metalloproteinase-9 showed decrease after 2 weeks, while a decrease in serum interleukin-1 receptor antagonists was statistically significant after 2 weeks. Following pain relief and changes to MMP-9 after eight weeks was highly noticeable, but the association of pain reduction and changes to IL-1ra remained crucial at two weeks after the group's consumption of 3 caps once daily was highly significant.

A double-blinded randomised dietary supplement crossover trial design to investigate the short-term influence of medium chain fatty acid (MCT) supplement on canine idiopathic epilepsy: study protocol

Abstract Background Epilepsy is the most common medical disorder in dogs. In some dogs with IE, an MCT-enriched diet has been shown to improve seizure control and behavioral comorbidities in those dogs with IE. Any dogs are injected with either the control oil or MCT oil alongside their normal diet are first fed for 90 days and two days with the other supplement, which also includes a 7-day washout period. If the study findings confirms the earlier findings, this will add to the credibility of MCTs as a treatment option for canine epilepsy.

In Vitro Inhibition of Human UDP-Glucuronosyl-Transferase (UGT) Isoforms by Astaxanthin, β-Cryptoxanthin, Canthaxanthin, Lutein, and Zeaxanthin: Prediction of in Vivo Dietary Supplement-Drug Interactions

Using specific marker reactions in human liver microsomes or recombinant supersomes, we investigated the inhibitory activity of these xanthophylls in vitro on seven major human hepatic UGTs in vitro by LC-MS/MS using specific marker reactions. And, via UGT1A1 inhibition, we also predicted future dietary supplement-drug interactions for -cryptoxanthin. The seven UGTs showed no apparent inhibition astaxanthin and zeaxanthin, according to us, although the remaining xanthophylls showed only weak inhibitory results. Canthaxanthin barely impeded UGT1A1 and UGT1A3 with IC50 values of 38. 7 3. 79 M, respectively; and lutein inhibited UGT1A1 and UGT1A3, with IC50 values of 38. 5 4. 65 and 41. 2 3. 14 3. 14 M, respectively; and with IC50 values of 48. 5 3. 79 M; respectively; and UGT1A3A4A1A1A1A1A1A1A1A3A3A3A1A3A1A1 4. 61 and 42. 8 M and 48. 5 M; and UGT1A4A3; and UGT1A3M; and UGT1A3; and 48. 5 3. 14; and 41. 2 M; and 41. 2 M; and 41. 2 M; and 41. 2 M; and 38. 5 M; and 41. 2 M; and UGT1M; and 41. 2 M; and 41. 2 Among the tested xanthophyll-UGT pairs, cryptoxanthin had the most competitive inhibition of UGT1A1 in a competitive test. In addition, we estimated the possibility of UGT1A1 inhibition in vivo using the highest plasma concentration after oral administration of -cryptoxanthin in humans.
