Myrtle berries juice has protective effect against diarrhea

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:

A study has evaluated the effects of myrtle (Myrtus communis) on gastro-intestinal transit and gastric emptying in rats. Adult male wistar rats were used to evaluate the normal transit and gastric emptying, through enteropooling tests, and small intestine oxidative stress. The effect of myrtle berries juice (MBJ) (5 and 10ml/kg, bw. p.o.) was after compared to the loperamide and clonidine effects after diarrhea was induced in rats by oral administration of castor oil (5 ml/kg, b.w. p.o.).

Myrtle berries juice significantly and dose-dependently inhibited the intestinal motility and gastric emptying. Myrtle berries juice administration induced a significant dose-dependent protection against diarrhea and intestinal fluid accumulation. Castor oil-induced intestinal hypersecretion was accompanied by an oxidative stress status in the intestine, which was attenuated by myrtle berries juice administration.

Mechanism of antidiarrheal effect of myrtle berry juice

 

Myrtle berries juice had a potent protective effects against castor oil-induced diarrhea in part due, to its antioxidant and antisecretory properties.

A vitamin C-enriched gelatin increases collagen synthesis

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:

In Europe, vitamin C is associated with authorized health claims on collagen synthesis.

However, such claims are substantiated only by pre-clinical evidences and by symptoms of deficiency. In this study, 8 healthy male subjects have received a placebo or a vitamin C-enriched gelatin (5 or 15g). The authors used a randomized, double-blinded and cross-over design.

Participants received their supplement one hour before an intermittent activity (rope-skipping for 6 min). The pattern of supplementation was repeated three times per day, with at least 6 hours between each session.

Results showed increased serum amount of glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and hydroxylisine, the key amino acids of collagen. Moreover, in vitro studies showed that serum samples obtained from supplemented participants were able to increase collagen content and improve mechanics of engineered ligaments. Finally, participants receiving 15 g of gelatin experienced an increased collagen synthesis.

Therefore, gelatin and vitamin C are able to increase collagen synthesis in healthy subjects. The clinical benefits of these effects in sportsmen or in subjects with knee osteoarthritis remain however to be confirmed.

Mucosave® consumption improves gastroesophageal reflux.

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:

A randomized double-blinded controlled clinical study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and the safety of a formulation based on sodium alginate/bicarbonate in combination with extracts obtained from Opuntia ficus-indica and Olea europaea associated with polyphenols (Mucosave®), on gastroesophageal reflux-related symptoms.

Mucosave

A total of 118 volunteers (male and female) with moderate gastroesophageal reflux were supplemented with Mucosave® (6 g/day) or placebo for 2 months. The questionnaires Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease-Health-Related Quality of Life (GERD-HRQoL) and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Symptom Assessment Scale (GSAS) were self-administered by participants before and at the end of the treatment.

Mucosave® produced statistically significant reduction of GERD-HRQoL and GSAS scores, -56.5% and -59.1%, respectively, in comparison to placebo. Heartburn and acid regurgitation episodes were significantly reduced by Mucosave® (p < 0.01).

Results indicate that Mucosave® formulation provides an effective and well-tolerated treatment for reducing the frequency and intensity of symptoms associated with gastroesophageal reflux.

Supplementation of Branched-Chain Amino Acids, Arginine, and Citrulline improves endurance exercise performance: 2 clinical trials.

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 study investigated the combination of BCAA, arginine, and citrulline on endurance performance in two consecutive days.

Seven male and three female endurance runners ingested 0.17 g·kg(-1) BCAA, 0.05 g·kg(-1) arginine and 0.05 g·kg(-1) citrulline (AA trial) or placebo (PL trial) in a randomized cross-over design. Each trial contained a 5000 m time trial on the first day, and a 10000 m time trial on the second day.

The AA trial had significantly better performance in 5000 m (AA: 1065.7 ± 33.9 s; PL: 1100.5 ± 40.4 s) and 10000 m (AA: 2292.0 ± 211.3 s; PL: 2375.6 ± 244.2 s). The two trials reported similar ratings of perceived exertion. After exercise, the AA trial had significantly lower tryptophan/BCAA ratio, similar NH3, and significantly higher urea concentrations.

BCAA

According to authors, the supplementation could enhance time-trial performance in two consecutive days in endurance runners, possibly through the inhibition of cerebral serotonin synthesis by BCAA and the prevention of excess hyperammonemia by increased urea genesis.
