Metabolic profile of wistar rats after consumption of flour prepared with grains and fruits

The occurrence of chronic and degenerative diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and cancer is increasing sharply. In the last years, there has been an increase in interest in the consumption of foods with functional properties that are related to weight loss and disease prevention. For these reasons, this study aimed to evaluate the effects of flour prepared with grains and fruits on the...

Pachyrhizus spp. seed extracts control the Sclerotium rolfsii Sacc. mycelial growth

The present paper aimed to characterize the bioactivity being exerted on Sclerotium rolfsii Sacc. in vitro by seed aqueous extracts from 64 yam bean (Pachyrhizus spp.) genotypes as well as their maceration times (0, 48 and 72 h). Three experiments were carried out following a completely randomized design with 64 treatments (potato-dextrose-agar PDA+extracts) with two controls (PDA with no extract and PDA+Cabrio® Top...

Effects of Boswellia serrata, Zingiber officinale and Ginkgo biloba extracts in combination on memory impairment in mice

Cognitive decline induced by oxidative brain damage is the critical pathological hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. Studies have shown that individual administration of Boswellia serrata Roxb (BS), Zingiber officinale Roscoe (ZO) and Ginkgo biloba L. (GB) extracts improved memory and learning through a different mechanism of actions. This study aims to compare the individual effects of each extract with their...

Analysis by GC (Ir), GC/MS and mosquito repellent effect of essential oils against Anopheles gambiae: Case of stem bark of Sterculia tragacantha Lindl (Sterculiaceae) from Côte d'Ivoire

The objectives of this study were to determine the chemical composition and to evaluate the mosquito repellent property of essential oils extracted from the bark of the stem of Sterculia tragacantha Lindl on Anopheles gambiae, vector of malaria. The essential oil of the stem bark of S. tragacantha Lindl is extracted by hydrodistillation and their chemical compositions were identified by GC (Ir) and GC-MS. This oil has...

Study of seasonality and location effects on the chemical composition of essential oils from Eugenia uniflora leaves

The essential oils of Eugenia uniflora leave possess several biological activities but a great variability in their chemical composition is observed. In the present study, gas chromatography and mass spectrometry were applied to examine the essential oil from leaves of four different specimens over the seasons of the year, two of which are located in a habitat of a Brazilian metropolis, and the other two in a natural...
