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...

People who turn to fatty comfort foods, such as a scoop of ice cream or a piece of chocolate cake, during times of emotional stress know firsthand how calming these foods can be.  However, new research shows that so-called "Ëœcomfort eating' really does work at a molecular level to lift our mood, findings that could help explain why so many people spiral into obesity amid long-term stressful situations. The scientists at the University of Leuven in Belgium concluded that...

Mice without cortisol receptor lose weight and suffer from gallstones Nature sees to it that we do not have "too much choler" (bile) in our body. A delicately equilibrated regulation system ensures that there is always exactly the right amount of bile in the gallbladder. When we are hungry, our body releases a hormone called cortisol, which is a glucocorticoid. Hepatic cells receive this hormone signal through their cortisol receptors (glucocorticoid receptors) and respond by filling the...

Blood clotting is a complicated business, particularly for those trying to understand how the body responds to injury. In a new study, researchers report that they are the first to describe in atomic detail a chemical interaction that is vital to blood clotting. This interaction "“ between a clotting factor and a cell membrane "“ has baffled scientists for decades. The study appears online in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. "For decades, people have known that blood-clotting...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- A natural product called DLPC (dilauroyl phosphatidylcholine) increases sensitivity to insulin and reduces fatty liver in mice, leading Baylor College of Medicine researchers to believe it may provide a treatment for prediabetic patients. DLPC is an unusual phospholipid and a trace component of the dietary supplement lecithin. Dr. David D. Moore, professor of molecular and cellular biology at BCM, and his colleagues at first thought that DLPC would provide a useful tool...

A Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University research team has developed a process that removes a key obstacle to producing low-cost, renewable biofuels from bacteria.  The team has reprogrammed photosynthetic microbes to secrete high-energy fats, making byproduct recovery and conversion to biofuels easier and potentially more commercially viable. "The real costs involved in any biofuel production are harvesting the goodies and turning them into fuel," said Roy Curtiss, of the...
