The Effects of Supplementary Cr3 (Chromium(III) Propionate Complex) on the Mineral Status in Healthy Female Rats

More and more people use food supplements for various reasons, e.g. to prevent mineral deficiency and diseases (e.g. osteoporosis, diabetes, anaemia). Supplements containing Cr(III) are purchased primarily for weight loss and antidiabetic effects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of supplementary Cr3 {chromium(III) propionate complex, [Cr3O(O2CCH2CH3)6(H2O)3]NO3)} ...

Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni: health promoting properties and therapeutic applications

Stevia is a genus of approx. 200 species of herbs and shrubs from the family Astraceae. One of the representatives of the genus is sweetleaf Stevia rebaudiana, formerly called Eupatorium rebaudianum Bertoni (Yadav et al. in Can J Plant Sci 91:1–27, 2011). S. rebaudiana Bertoni has been known for many centuries by indigenous tribes of South America, who called it “kaa-hee” (sweet ...

The Effects of Supplementary Mulberry Leaf (Morus alba) Extracts on the Trace Element Status (Fe, Zn and Cu) in Relation to Diabetes Management and Antioxidant Indices in Diabetic Rats

Mulberry leaves (Morus alba) have been used in folk medicine to mitigate symptoms of diabetes. The mulberry plant contains phenolic compounds that are able to decrease blood glucose concentration. Since various phenolics have antioxidant and metal binding properties, they can be used to alleviate oxidative stress and chelate trace elements involved in redox reactions. The aim of ...

An Assessment of the Consumption of Energy and Selected Minerals and Their Content in the Hair of Children Aged 1–4 Years

The aim of this study was to assess the consumption of energy and selected minerals (Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Cu) and their content in the hair of children aged 1–4 years. Seventy-five children were divided into three age subgroups: 12–24-month-olds, 25–36-month-olds and 37–48-month-olds. The data on energy intake and consumption of nutrients were obtained by means of a nutritional ...

The Effects of Antihypertensive Drugs on Chromium Status, Glucose Metabolism, and Antioxidant and Inflammatory Indices in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats

The long-term use of hypotensive drugs may cause side effects, including impaired glucose metabolism and mineral status. This study tested the hypothesis that some hypotensive drugs can affect tissular chromium levels and indices of glucose metabolic and antioxidant potential in rats. The experiment was performed on 40 male spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs), which were ...

The Effects of l-Arginine, Alone and Combined with Vitamin C, on Mineral Status in Relation to its Antidiabetic, Anti-Inflammatory, and Antioxidant Properties in Male Rats on a High-Fat Diet

The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of the intake of l-arginine alone and of l-arginine with vitamin C on mineral concentration in rats fed with a high-fat diet, and to assess the lipid glucose, insulin, and total antioxidant status (TAS) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha serum levels that result. Wistar rats were assigned to groups fed with either a standard ...

Effects of Combined Dietary Chromium(III) Propionate Complex and Thiamine Supplementation on Insulin Sensitivity, Blood Biochemical Indices, and Mineral Levels in High-Fructose-Fed Rats

Insulin resistance is the first step in glucose intolerance and the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus, thus effective prevention strategies should also include dietary interventions to enhance insulin sensitivity. Nutrients, such as microelement chromium(III) and thiamine, play regulatory roles in carbohydrate metabolism. The objective of this study was to evaluate the ...

Evaluation of the Acute Oral Toxicity Class of Trinuclear Chromium(III) Glycinate Complex in Rat

Chromium(III) is considered as an essential element playing a role in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, and various chemical forms of this element are widely used in dietary supplements. A new trinuclear chromium(III) glycinate complex [Cr3O(NH2CH2CO2)6(H2O)3]+NO 3 − (CrGly), an analogue of Cr3 (trinuclear Cr(III) propionate complex) has been synthesized as a potential source of ...

Effect of Mycophenolate Mofetil on Plasma Bioelements in Renal Transplant Recipients

The proper concentrations of plasma bioelements may favorably reduce the incidence of metabolic disorders, which often occur during immunosuppressive therapy. Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is currently one of the most frequently administered immunosuppressive agents; however, MMF treatment is often related to gastrointestinal side effects. The aim of this study was thus to verify ...
