Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that a recent study has highlighted the importance of the activation of certain liver receptors for improving the Metabolic Abnormalities (reduction of triglycerides in the liver). However, the very same receptors are found in the intestine. A key nutrient for liver and intestine health, more specifically Poly-Enyl-Phosphatidylcholine (PPC), plays a key role in the homeostasis of these receptors in the intestine, equally important as the liver, for improving...

Sanford-Burnham researchers unravel how the interplay between two cellular processes–autophagy and lipid metabolism–influences lifespan in C. elegans worms Aging is generally accepted as a universal fact of life, but how do humans and other organisms age at the molecular level? At Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (Sanford-Burnham), a team led by Malene Hansen, Ph.D., uses a type of worm called Caenorhabditis elegans to work out the molecular underpinnings of the aging...

Scientists have discovered a biological switch that gives energy-storing white fat the characteristics of energy-burning brown fat. The findings could lead to new strategies for treating obesity. The animal study by researchers at The Ohio State University Medical Center shows that the change is due to the activation of a nerve and biochemical pathway that begins in the hypothalamus, an area of the brain involved in energy balance, and ends in white fat cells. This pathway, called the...

Max Planck researchers analyze the structure of an iron storage protein Microbes are omnipresent on earth. They are found as free-living microorganisms as well as in communities with other higher organisms. Thanks to modern biological techniques we are now able to address the complex communities and study the role of individual microorganisms and enzymes in more detail. Microbacterium arborescens is a bacterium, which can be found in the guts of herbivorous caterpillars. The Department...

Exposing eggs to high levels of saturated fatty acids "“ as commonly found in the ovaries of obese women and those with Type II diabetes "“ compromises the development of the embryo, according to new research published in PLoS ONE. The study "“ by researchers from Antwerp, Hull, and Madrid "“ found that embryos resulting from cattle eggs exposed to high levels of fatty acids had fewer cells, altered gene expression and altered metabolic activity, all indicators of...

Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that recent studies for Omega-3 shifts the focus to the end components of Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) rather than to its precursor ÃŽ±-Linolenic Acid (ALA) "probably due to the relatively inefficient conversion of ALA to EPA and DHA in humans", at the least in the case of Metabolic Syndrome. Miami, Florida (PRWEB) August 14, 2011 Nutri-Med Logic Corp: Recent studies on effect and emerging action of Omega-3 in Metabolic Syndrome, cited in...
