Prebiotic supplementation in children with overweight and obesity improves appetite regulation.

NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:

 

The aim of this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was to examine the effects of prebiotic supplementation on appetite control and energy intake in 42 children with overweight and obesity.

 

Children were assigned to 8 g oligofructose-enriched inulin/d or placebo (maltodextrin), for 16 weeks. Compared with placebo, prebiotic intake resulted in significantly higher feelings of fullness (p = 0.04). Compared with placebo, prebiotic supplementation significantly reduced energy intake at the week 16 breakfast buffet in 11- and 12-years-olds (p = 0.04) but not in 7- to 10-y-olds. Fasting adiponectin (p = 0.04) and ghrelin (p = 0.03) increased at 16 weeks with the prebiotic compared with placebo. In ITT analysis, there was a trend for prebiotic supplementation to reduce BMI z score to a greater extent than placebo (-3.4%; p = 0.09).

 

Prebiotic supplementation in children with overweight and obesity improves appetite regulation.

Figure: Change (from baseline to 16 weeks) in fullness ratings taken before and after a breakfast buffet in participants receiving a prebiotic (n = 21) or placebo (n = 19). Values are means ± SEMs. *Different from placebo, p<0.05

 

 

Independent of other lifestyle changes, prebiotic supplementation in children with overweight and obesity improved subjective appetite ratings. This simple dietary change has the potential to help with appetite regulation in children with obesity.

Omega 3 fatty acids and especially EPA improve the functional changes following exercise-induced muscle damage.

NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:

 

The purpose of this double-blind, placebo-controlled study was to examine the effect of two fish oil supplements, one high in EPA (750 mg EPA, 50 mg DHA) and one low in EPA (150 mg EPA, 100 mg DHA), taken acutely as a recovery strategy following exercise-induced muscle damage.

27 physically active males (26 ± 4 year, 1.77 ± 0.07 m, 80 ± 10 kg) completed 100 plyometric drop jumps to induce muscle damage. Immediately after the damaging protocol, volunteers ingested either a placebo (Control), a low-EPA fish oil (Low EPA) or a high-EPA fish oil (High EPA) at a dose of 1 g per 10 kg body mass.

 

Squat jump performance

Squat jump performance before and up to 96h after damaging exercise. *Denotes a significant group effect.

 

A significant group main effect was observed for squat jump, with the High EPA group performing better than Control and Low EPA groups (average performance decrement, 2.1, 8.3 and 9.8%, respectively), and similar findings were observed for countermovement jump performance, (average performance decrement, 1.7, 6.8 and 6.8%, respectively, p = 0.07).

 

 

This study indicates that an acute dose of high-EPA fish oil may ameliorate the functional changes following exercise-induced muscle damage.

The EU Novel Food System Aims to Become Faster and Better” by Dr Thomas Pauquai on Nutritional Outlook USA

The EU Novel Food System Aims to Become Faster and Better”

How the European Union’s new novel food regulation aims to quicken time to market and boost innovation.

After 20 years, the European Union’s novel food regulation is finally getting an update. On December 11, 2015, the European Parliament published in the Official Journal of the European Union regulation (EC) 2015/2283. The regulation, which becomes effective January 1, 2018, replaces the Parliament’s previously existing novel food regulation, (EC) No 258/97, which was signed into law in January 1997.

The aim of the new regulation is to create a simpler, clearer, and more efficient authorization procedure for novel food ingredients, fully centralized at EU level. By streamlining the process, the regulation should enable safe and innovative novel foods to enter the EU market faster, without compromising a high level of public health…

Red clover for menopausal symptoms: a systematic review and a meta-analysis.

NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:

This article focusses on the effects of a red clover extract (Promensil) for the treatment of menopausal hot flashes. The authors only examined clinical trials assessing the effects of 80 mg/d of Promensil, used alone, on vasomotor symptoms.

Among the 20 clinical trials identified, only 5 meet the inclusion criteria. The meta-analysis demonstrated a statistical and clinically relevant reduction in hot flush frequency in the active treatment group compared to placebo (mean difference between groups: 3.63 hot flashes per day, 95% CI: 2.70-4.56, p < 0.00001).

Red clover for menopausal symptoms: a systematic review and a meta-analysis.

Therefore, isoflavoes from red clover (Trifolium pratense) are effective for the management of vasomotor symptoms in post-menopausal symptoms.

The effective supplementation corresponds to 80 mg/d of extract for 3 months.
