Nutritional impact upon health conditions

  1. Effects of Changes in Water Intake on Mood of High and Low Drinkers                         (Benardot, 2007)                                                                                                                                     Inadequate fluid consumption, particularly during bouts of physical activity, that results in dehydration may inhibit the delivery of nutrients to cells and inhibit the removal of metabolic by-products from cells, both of which are factors in early exercise fatigue.
  2. The Ketogenic Diet: Uses in Epilepsy and Other Neurologic Illnesses                        (Barañano and Hartman, 2008)                                                                                                                    The ketogenic diet traditionally has been used in cases of intractable epilepsy, but it also has become established as a first-line agent in a few specific epilepsy syndromes.
  3. Glycaemic Responses, Appetite Ratings and Gastrointestinal Hormone Responses of Most Common Breads Consumed in Spain. A Randomised Control Trial in Healthy Humans (Gonzalez-Anton et al, 2015)                                                             The present study was carried out to determine the glycemic index (GI), glycemic load (GL), insulinemic index (InI), appetite ratings and postprandial plasma concentrations of gastrointestinal hormones related to the control of food intake after the ingestion of the five most common breads consumed in Spain with different compositions and manufacturing processes.  
  4. Nutritional aspects related to endometriosis (Halpern et al, 2015)                                    For the treatment and control of endometriosis, hormonal medications are the only options currently available, often without therapeutic success and with numerous side effects. This review allows us to conclude that there is evidence that food and nutrients influence both the pathogenesis and progression of the disease, leading to the possibility of alternative, adjuvant treatments to those suffering from the disease.
  5. Healthful and unhealthful plant-based diets and the risk of coronary heart disease in US adults (Satija et al, 2017)                                                                                                     Higher intake of a plant-based diet index rich in healthier plant foods is associated with substantially lower CHD risk, while a plant-based diet index that emphasizes lesshealthy plant foods is associated with higher CHD risk.  
  6. Cannabinoids in the Treatment of Epilepsy: Hard Evidence at Last?                          (Perucca , 2017)                                                                                                                                              Evidence concerning the potential anti-seizure efficacy of cannabinoids reached a turning point in the last 12 months, with the completion of three high-quality placebo-controlled adjunctive-therapy trials of a purified CBD product in patients with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. In these studies, CBD was found to be superior to placebo in reducing the frequency of convulsive (tonic-clonic, tonic, clonic, and atonic) seizures in patients with Dravet syndrome, and the frequency of drop seizures in patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. For the first time, there is now class 1 evidence that adjunctive use of CBD improves seizure control in patients with specific epilepsy syndromes.
