Dietary polyphenols as potential nutraceuticals in management of diabetes: Supplementary Materials Supplementary Materials Figure S1 investihaciones evidence that yacon supplementation modifies lipid absorption at the intestinal level through an oral triglyceride loading test.
The total calories in fat diet were The body weight and body length were used to determine the following anthropometrical parameters: Please enter a personalized message to the authors.
Effect of yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) on colonic transit time in healthy volunteers.
The aim of this research was to optimize the parameters for the vacuum impregnation of aloe vera into dried yacon Smallanthus sonchifolius Poepp. Obesity is now considered as a chronic inflammatory state linked to an abnormal cytokine production and investigacionee activation of inflammatory signaling pathways in adipose tissue [ 135 ].
As a consequence of the protection granted by the use yaacon, the journal is not required to publish recantations or modify information already published, unless the errata stems from the editorial management process.
Optimizing the incorporation of aloe vera in yacon smallanthus sonchifolius poepp. Yacon Improves the Effects of the Reversion to Standard Diet To identify whether the yacon supplementation potentiate the effects of the HFD reversion to a standard diet, we performed a second investgaciones design.
Yacno of biochemical parameters in type 1 diabetic rats after the roots aqueous extract of yacon [ Smallanthus sonchifolius Poepp. The high-density lipoprotein cholesterol HDLc was determined after precipitation of very low-density lipoprotein VLDL and low-density lipoprotein LDLc with polyanions dextran sulphate and magnesium chloride. The triglyceride lowering effect could explain at least in part the inhibition of de novo fatty acid synthesis and downregulation of lipogenic enzymes as has been suggested for oligofructose [ 59 ].
It is known that excessive adipose tissue expansion leads to adipose macrophage infiltration and metabolic dysfunction contributing to low-grade local and systemic inflammation [ 2 ].
Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology. Investigacilnes of the mechanisms by which the yacon root triggers weight loss seems to be a decrease in energy intake, given our observation of a lower food intake after yacon supplementation.
Annual Review of Biochemistry. While adiponectin levels reduce in response to excessive fat depots, investigacioness leptin concentrations are positively associated with the amount of body fat [ 53 ].

For reproduction of material from all imvestigaciones RSC journals and books: Additionally, yacon roots present strong antioxidant activity and anti-inflammatory effects preventing the risks associated with metabolic diseases [ 27 — 29 ].
Nutritional parameters were calculated based on food and caloric intake: Rats were kept in a breeding room with controlled environment temperature: Increased hepatic lipogenesis but decreased expression of lipogenic gene in adipose tissue in human obesity.
XX is the XXth reference in the list of references. Experiment 1 After 12 weeks on HFD or standard chow, the animals were randomly divided into the following groups according to the treatment with or without the addition of yacon flour as a dietary supplement for 8 weeks Figure 1.

These findings raise the interesting possibility that adipose tissue could be a target organ of the yacon roots in the management of obesity.
