Nutrition and the Eye: Basic and Clinical Research (Developments in Ophthalmology, Vol. 38)

This volume contains a basic research section focusing on the major compounds of nutrition and food supplements as well as a clinical research section providing up-to-date information on the results of recent clinical studies. The first part gives an insight into the mechanisms of substances relevant to antioxidants and food supplements in relation to eye diseases. The consequences and relevance of selenium, one of the most important trace elements, are considered in a separate section. Further, vitamins E and C as well as lutein and zeaxanthin, the physiological macular pigment, are discussed.The second part focuses on both anterior and posterior segment diseases which might be influenced by food supplementation and/or antioxidants. In addition, this section explains the oxidative pathomechanisms of the most important disease processes.Written for clinicians as well as basic vision scientists, this volume is an essential contribution to the research activities, especially in eye

Nutritional and Integrative Strategies in Cardiovascular Medicine

Despite 40 years of aggressive pharmaceutical and surgical interventions, coronary artery disease (CAD) remains the number one killer of women and men in Western civilization. When it comes to CAD, prevention is easier than cure, and if CAD does present itself, a combination of conventional and alternative methodologies can truly make a difference in people’s lives. Nutritional and Integrative Strategies in Cardiovascular Medicine provides scientific and clinical insight from leaders in the field of cardiovascular medicine who explore an integrative approach to treating and curing cardiovascular diseases through conventional and non-allopathic methodologies.

Introduction to Clinical Nutrition

Dietary factors have been implicated in at least four of the ten leading causes of death in the U.S. (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and stroke). Nevertheless, physicians frequently receive inadequate training in nutrition to properly counsel their patients. Introduction to Clinical Nutrition, Third Edition discusses the physiologic and metabolic interrelationships of all nutrients and their roles in health maintenance and the prevention of various diseases.
Since the publication of the second edition of this book, new discoveries have revolutionized the field of clinical nutrition. This is true especially with respect to gene-nutrient interaction, epigenetic pathways that contribute to the activation and inactivation of gene expression, the relationship of nutrients to telomere length and health, and personalized nutrition. Highlighting these advances, new and revised topics include:
– Fiber, antioxidants, nutraceuticals, alternative medicine, and epidemiology
– DNA, gene–nutrient interaction, epigenetics, and telomeres
– Nutritional aspects of kidney disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome
– Personalized nutrition and personalized medicine
– Vegetarianism, the Mediterranean diet, and other popular dietary practices
– Obesity and cholesterol
Designed as a textbook for students in conventional medicine, osteopathy, dentistry, dietetics, nursing, pharmacy, and public health, the book focuses on the critical biochemical and physiological aspects of nutrients. It includes clinical case studies to clarify topics at the end of most chapters and references to facilitate further study.

Pharma-Nutrition: An Overview

Natural products and functional/medical foods are now widely acknowledged as having an effect on the microbiome of the intestine, which in turn influences the outcome of certain disease.

This book reviews the impact and effects of natural products and functional/medical foods (nutritional programming) on disease management, specifically focusing on diseases related to 1) Inflammation and Immunity, 2) Cancer, COPD and Cachexia, 3) Allergy and 4) Brain Neuro/Immune. Hippocrates said “let medicine be thy food and food be thy medicine”. While most of us are familiar with Hippocrates famous words, we admit that in recent times, the disciplines of pharma and nutrition have evolved separately. Today, with the ever growing burden of diseases in modern society, we see a convergence of the two in relation to specific disease prevention and treatment. This re-discovered common ground between the complementary values of pharma and nutrition can be conceptualized in the term pharma-nutrition. Various chapters in the book review the aspects of molecular characteristics of food ingredients towards clinical effectiveness and relevance.

Branched Chain Amino Acids in Clinical Nutrition: Volume 2

This is the second volume in a 2-volume compendium that is the go-to source for both research- and practice-oriented information on the importance of branched chain amino acids in maintaining the nutritional status and overall health of individuals, especially those with certain disease conditions. Over 150 well recognized and respected contributors have come together to compile these up-to-date and well-referenced works. The volumes will serve the reader as the benchmarks in this complex area of interrelationships between dietary protein intakes and individual amino acid supplementation, the unique role of the branched chain amino acids in the synthesis of brain neurotransmitters, collagen formation, insulin and glucose modulation and the functioning of all organ systems that are involved in the maintenance of the body’s metabolic integrity. Moreover, the physiological, genetic and pathological interactions between plasma levels of branched chain amino acids and aromatic amino acids are clearly delineated so that students as well as practitioners can better understand the complexities of these interactions.

Branched Chain Amino Acids in Clinical Nutrition: Volume 2 covers the role of branched chain amino acids in healthy individuals, and branched chain amino acid status in disease states, liver diseases, and supplementation studies in certain patient populations.
