A long myth that how coconut oil lowers cholesterol and triglyceride and increases HDL levels is explained: Lauric acid-based therapy for Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD):Lauric acid (C12) or Dodecanoic acid, one of the main components of  coconut oil, promotes degradation of HMGCR, decreases the levels of triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and prevents the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD via down-regulation of its target gene, 9/June/2018, 11.17 pm

The significance of the study: Given that: (1)  15-30% of Western populations suffer from Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), while 6-25% of Asian populations suffer from it; (2) 75 […]

Molecular therapy for body weight control, energy homeostasis and TIIDM: Aleglitazar, a PPARα and PPARγ agonist, inhibits DNA methyltransferase 3a (Dnmt3a) expression, increases FGF21 expression, augments insulin sensitivity, increases glucose tolerance, and protects from diet-induced obesity and TIIDM, via up-regulation of its target gene, 7/June/2019, 11.30 pm

Introduction: What they say  A study from Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology Department, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, United States shows that “Dnmt3a is an epigenetic mediator […]

Drinking ginger tea will make you to shed off weight and and lower lipid levels: Zingerone, a natural compound found in cooked ginger, decreases the levels of HMGCR,  triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and prevents the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), via up-regulation of its target gene, 31/May/2019, 3.12 pm

The significance of the study: Given that: (1)  15-30% of Western populations suffer from Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), while 6-25% of Asian populations suffer from it; (2) 75 […]

Excess consumption of coffee during pregnancy increases the chances of childhood obesity: Caffeine increases the levels of HMGCR,  triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and accelerates the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), via up-regulation of its target gene, 14/May/2019, 11.43 pm

The significance of the study: Given that: (1)  15-30% of Western populations suffer from Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), while 6-25% of Asian populations suffer from it; (2) 75 […]
