[1] Vitamin/Mineral Supplement Use among Athletes: A Review of the Literature Vitamin/mineral supplements are often used by athletes as ergogenic aids to improve performance. This paper reviews studies of the prevalence, patterns, and explanations for vitamin/mineral supplement use among athletes. Fifty-one studies provided quantitative prevalence data on 10,274 male and female athletes at several levels of athletic participation in over 15 sports. The overall mean prevalence of athletes’ supplement use was 46%. Most studies reported that over half of the … Continue reading “News Update on Mineral Supplement : May 21”

[1] Vitamin D: A millenium perspective Vitamin D is one of the oldest hormones that have been made in the earliest life forms for over 750 million years. Phytoplankton, zooplankton, and most plants and animals that are exposed to sunlight have the capacity to make vitamin D. Vitamin D is critically important for the development, growth, and maintenance of a healthy skeleton from birth until death. The major function of vitamin D is to maintain calcium homeostasis. It accomplishes this … Continue reading “Latest Research on Vitamin D : April 21”

Autophagy regulates lipid metabolism The intracellular storage and utilization of lipids are critical to maintain cellular energy homeostasis. During nutrient deprivation, cellular lipids stored as triglycerides in lipid droplets are hydrolysed into fatty acids for energy. A second cellular response to starvation is the induction of autophagy, which delivers intracellular proteins and organelles sequestered in double-membrane vesicles (autophagosomes) to lysosomes for degradation and use as an energy source. Lipolysis and autophagy share similarities in regulation and function but are not … Continue reading “Latest Research on Lipid Metabolism : Nov 2020”

Comparisons of diets used in animal models of high fat feeding Animal models are invaluable resources for biomedical research, including research on the effects of diet on metabolism and disease. Usually, great care is taken to ensure comparable genetic backgrounds and environmental conditions when performing studies using animal models, since this minimizes introduction of variability that can confound detection of treatment-related phenotypic differences. However, many papers using animal models draw conclusions about dietary effects from comparison of natural ingredient chow … Continue reading “Latest Research on Diets Used: March-2020”

Micronutrients: oxidant/antioxidant status Potentially damaging species (reactive O, N and element species) arise as by-products of metabolism and as physiological mediators and signalling molecules. Levels of those species ar controlled by the inhibitor weapons system. many elements of this method ar micronutrients (e.g. vitamins C and E) or ar dependent upon dietary micronutrients (e.g. CuZn and Mn superoxide dismutase). The inhibitor defences act as a coordinated system wherever deficiencies in one part might have an effect on the potency of … Continue reading “News Update on Micronutrients Research: Nov – 2019”
