During the menopause women may experience increased oxidative stress and decreased antioxidant capacity and, together with the decline of neurosteroids, this represents a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease. The aim of the present study was to test a functional food (FPP-ORI, Osato Research Institute, Gifu, Japan) on redox and mitochondrial efficiency in post-menopausal women. The … Continue reading Mitochondrial and redox dysfunction in post-#menopause as risk factor of neurodegenerative disease: a pilot study testing the role of a validated Japanese functional food.
Circadian (daily) regulation of metabolic pathways implies that food may be metabolized differentially over the daily cycle. To test that hypothesis, we monitored the metabolism of older subjects in a whole-room respiratory chamber over two separate 56-h sessions in a random crossover design. In one session, one of the 3 daily meals was presented as … Continue reading Eating #breakfast and avoiding late-evening snacking sustains #lipid oxidation
Six-minute walk is a common outcome in clinical trials of people with lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD). However, meaningful change in six-minute walk distance is not well defined in people with PAD.. ..777 participants with PAD (mean age: 71.2 years (standard deviation (SD)=8.8) mean baseline six-minute walk: 350.1 meters (SD=118.1) completed 5,439 questions about … Continue reading MEANINGFUL CHANGE IN SIX-MINUTE #WALK IN PEOPLE WITH PERIPHERAL #ARTERY DISEASE
The objective was to determine whether closer adherence to the alternative Mediterranean Diet (aMED) was associated with altered cognitive function.. ..Odds ratios for cognitive impairment, in aMED tertile 3 (vs 1), were 0.36 (P = .0001) for Modified Mini‐Mental State (<80) and 0.56 (P = .001) for composite score in AREDS, and 0.56 for Telephone … Continue reading Adherence to a #Mediterranean diet and #cognitive function in the Age‐Related Eye Disease Studies 1 & 2
In recent years a number of studies have reported the significant relationship between metabolic syndrome and neurodegenerative disease. There is accumulating evidence that the interplay of combined genetic and environmental risk factors (from diet to life style to pollutants) to intrinsic age-related oxi-inflammatory changes may be advocated for to explain the pandemic of neurodegenerative diseases. … Continue reading A 2-year Double-Blind RCT Follow-up Study with Fermented #Papaya Preparation (FPP) Modulating Key Markers in Middle-Age Subjects with Clustered #Neurodegenerative Disease-Risk Factors
