Absorption, Metabolism and Excretion of Artichoke Polyphenols in Healthy Individuals

2019-09-25 06:13:37 | BioPortfolio


A number of studies have reported the presence of polyphenolic compounds in artichokes, being the most abundant the caffeoylquinic acids (CQAs), which are esters between quinic acid and the hydroxycinnamate caffeic acid. The fate of artichoke polyphenols in humans after ingestion is currently unknown. The acute study will provide novel information on the bioavailability and metabolism of artichoke polyphenols, which will give important insights to understand the potential health benefits of artichoke consumption.

Health men and women participants (n=8) aged between 18 to 40 years old will be recruited. Participants will consume a normal ration of artichokes once. The participants will provide the investigators with urine and blood samples for polyphenol analysis at baseline and at different time points until 24 hours.

The waist circumference measurement divided by the hip circumference measurement. For both men and women, a waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) of 1.0 or higher is considered "at risk" for undesirable health consequences, such as heart disease and ailments associated with OVERWEIGHT. A healthy WHR is 0.90 or less for men, and 0.80 or less for women. (National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 2004)

A species of Lactobacillus that occurs in the human GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT and the VAGINA of healthy women. It produces LACTIC ACID and HYDROGEN PEROXIDE, and is used as a PROBIOTIC. It is also used for the treatment and prevention of BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

The only species in the genus GARDNERELLA, and previously classed as Haemophilus vaginalis. This bacterium, also isolated from the female genital tract of healthy women, is implicated in the cause of bacterial vaginosis (VAGINOSIS, BACTERIAL). It occasionally causes postpartum bacteremia and bacteremia following a transurethral resection of the prostate.
