Therapeutic and Nutritional Uses of Algae

 Nutrition  Comments Off on Therapeutic and Nutritional Uses of Algae
Apr 122018
 

Algae have been used since ancient times as food, fodder, fertilizer and as source of medicine. Nowadays seaweeds represent an unlimited source of the raw materials used in pharmaceutical, food industries, medicine and cosmetics. They are nutritionally valuable as fresh or dried vegetables, or as ingredients in a wide variety of prepared foods. In particular, seaweeds contain significant quantities of protein, lipids, minerals and vitamins. There is limited information about the role of algae and algal metabolites in medicine. Only a few taxa have been studied for their use in medicine. Many traditional cultures report curative powers from selected alga, in particular tropical and subtropical marine forms. This is especially true in the maritime areas of Asia, where the sea plays a significant role in daily activities. Nonetheless, at present, only a few genera and species of algae are involved in aspects of medicine and therapy. Beneficial uses of algae or algal products include those that may mimic specific manifestations of human diseases, production of antibiotic compounds, or improvement of human nutrition in obstetrics, dental research, thallassotherapy, and forensic medicine.

Early Nutrition and Lifestyle Factors: Effects on First Trimester Placenta

 Nutrition  Comments Off on Early Nutrition and Lifestyle Factors: Effects on First Trimester Placenta
Apr 072018
 

Highlights the impact of nutrients on early placentation processes
Focuses on cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in human placental blood vessel formation
Provides an update on the role of maternal dietary, health and lifestyle factors

This book highlights the impact of nutrients on early placentation processes and their relevance for fetal growth and pregnancy outcome.​ The role of maternal nutrition on fetal growth and development has been evidenced in many epidemiological studies that included infamous Dutch famine, Helsinki Birth cohort and others. Fetal programming hypothesis states that the nutritional and other environmental conditions under which an individual develops from pre-conception to birth has a major impact on the future health of the newborn child. The developmental environment of the fetus is primarily dependent on two major factors that are maternal nutritional state (excess/low/imbalance) and placental function. Placentation is characterized by the extensive remodeling of the maternal uterine vasculature producing low-resistance blood vessels that facilitate the exchange of nutrients and wastes between the mother and the fetus. Cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in human placental blood vessel formation, which are now well established, are discussed.

Weaving together pioneering research on dementia prevention, cognitive optimization, and nutritional psychiatry, Lugavere distills groundbreaking science into actionable lifestyle changes. He shares invaluable insights into how to improve your brain power, including

• the nutrients that can boost your memory and improve mental clarity (and where to find them);
• the foods and tactics that can energize and rejuvenate your brain, no matter your age;
• a brain-boosting fat-loss method so powerful it has been called “biochemical liposuction”; and
• the foods that can improve your happiness, both now and for the long term.
