    Abstract

    Hibiscus sabdariffa extract (HSE) was shown to lower the plasma lipid level and reduce the liver damage. In the present study, we investigated if Hibiscus sabdariffa polyphenols (HPE) exerted a hypolipidemic effect and its putative mechanism on liver. HPE exhibited more potency to decrease plasma cholesterol and LDL cholesterol than the crude extract HSE, and increased HDL cholesterol dose-dependently. It decreased the lipid content of hepatocyte through the activation of AMPK and reduction of SREBP-1, thus inhibiting the expression of fatty acid synthase and HMG-CoA reductase. LDLR and LDL binding of HepG2 cells were enhanced when treated with HPE. In conclusion, HPE is worthy of being further investigated and could be developed as an adjunctive for hepatic lipid control and hypolipidemic therapy.

    Abstract
    BACKGROUND:

    Dark chocolate has potent antioxidant properties. Coronary atherosclerosis is promoted by impaired endothelial function and increased platelet activation. Traditional risk factors, high oxidative stress, and reduced antioxidant defenses play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, particularly in transplanted hearts. Thus, flavonoid-rich dark chocolate holds the potential to have a beneficial impact on graft atherosclerosis.
    METHODS AND RESULTS:

    We assessed the effect of flavonoid-rich dark chocolate compared with cocoa-free control chocolate on coronary vascular and platelet function in 22 heart transplant recipients in a double-blind, randomized study. Coronary vasomotion was assessed with quantitative coronary angiography and cold pressor testing before and 2 hours after ingestion of 40 g of dark (70% cocoa) chocolate or control chocolate, respectively. Two hours after ingestion of flavonoid-rich dark chocolate, coronary artery diameter was increased significantly (from 2.36+/-0.51 to 2.51+/-0.59 mm, P<0.01), whereas it remained unchanged after control chocolate. Endothelium-dependent coronary vasomotion improved significantly after dark chocolate (4.5+/-11.4% versus -4.3+/-11.7% in the placebo group, P=0.01). Platelet adhesion decreased from 4.9+/-1.1% to 3.8+/-0.8% (P=0.04) in the dark chocolate group but remained unchanged in the control group.
    CONCLUSIONS:

    Dark chocolate induces coronary vasodilation, improves coronary vascular function, and decreases platelet adhesion 2 hours after consumption. These immediate beneficial effects were paralleled by a significant reduction of serum oxidative stress and were positively correlated with changes in serum epicatechin concentration.

    Identification of Polyphenolic Compounds and Black Tea Extract as Potent Inhibitors of Lipid Membrane Destabilization by Aβ42 Aggregates.

    Abstract

    Amyloid-β (Aβ) aggregation is a recognized key process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Misfolded Aβ peptides self-assemble into higher-order oligomers that compromise membrane integrity, leading to synaptic degeneration and neuronal cell death. The main aim of this study was to explore whether small-molecule compounds and black tea extract can protect phospholipid membranes from disruption by Aβ aggregates. We first established a robust protocol for aggregating Aβ42 peptides into a range of oligomers that efficiently permeabilized small unilamellar liposomes. Next, 15 natural plant polyphenolic compounds, 8 N'-benzylidene-benzohydrazide (NBB) compounds and black tea extract were assessed for their ability to antagonize liposome permeabilization by the Aβ42 oligomers. Our data indicates that black tea extract, the flavones apigenin and baicalein, and the stilbene nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) are indeed potent inhibitors. Taking into consideration the results of all the small-molecule polyphenols and NBB compounds, it can be proposed that a dihydroxyphenyl ring structure, alone or as part of a flavone scaffold, is particularly effective for protection against membrane damage by the Aβ42 oligomers. Given the critical role of membrane perforation in the neurodegenerative cascade, these conclusions may guide the design and development of novel therapeutic drugs in AD.

    Hypolipidemic and antioxidant effects of hydroxycinnamic acids, quercetin, and cyanidin 3-glucoside in hypercholesterolemic erythrocytes (in vitro study).

    Abstract

    OBJECTIVE:

    Four polyphenols: ferulic acid and p-coumaric acid (hydroxycinnamic acids), quercetin (flavonol) and cyanidin 3-glucoside (anthocyanin) were selected, and their antioxidant properties and their influence on cholesterol concentration in hypercholesterolemic and normal erythrocytes were investigated.
    METHODS:

    To determine the effect of phenolic compounds, we prospectively studied cholesterol concentration, lipid peroxidation and membranes fluidity. Whole-blood and isolated erythrocytes (2% hematocrit) were incubated for 24 h with selected compounds at concentration 1, 10 and 100 μmol/L. All investigated compounds decreased lipid peroxidation in whole blood. Cyanidin 3-glucoside and quercetin showed higher antioxidant properties than hydroxycinnamic acids (ferulic acid and p-coumaric acid).
    RESULTS:

    Incubation of whole blood of hypercholesterolemic patients with quercetin and cyanidin 3-glucoside resulted in statistically significant reduction of cholesterol concentration in erythrocytes down to 75% (at 10 μmol/L of polyphenols) and 69% (at 100 μmol/L of polyphenols) of initial values. The effect of both compounds on isolated erythrocytes was even more pronounced, reduction down to 70% (at 10 μmol/L of polyphenols) and 58% (at 100 μmol/L of polyphenols) of initial values. After incubation of isolated erythrocytes of hypercholesterolemic patients with quercetin and cyanidin 3-glucoside, increase of membrane fluidity was noticed. After incubation of isolated erythrocytes of healthy donors with investigated compounds, no changes in membrane fluidity were observed.
    CONCLUSION:

    Our results indicate that flavonols and anthocyanins have higher antioxidant properties and higher influence on cholesterol concentration in erythrocytes membranes than simple hydroxycinnamic acids.

    Most polyphenols are multifunctional. Hence THIS particular product for BASYX.

    I wish the price would have allowed more varied polyphenol content in NOxidant.
