Solanum paniculatum L. or popularly known as “jurubeba” is an herbal medicinal plant. A few studies have investigated its biological effects; however, research aimed at elucidating the redox balance effects from its fruits has not been reported so far. ROS interplays in various fields of medicine such as chemotherapy. Here, we evaluated antioxidant...

To verify if the bark of Passiflora edulis prevents obesity-related disorders and oxidative stress in db/db mice. Obese male db/db mice (n = 14 animals) were randomly divided into two groups to receive standard chow and water (obese, n = 7 (OB)) or standard chow with bark of Passiflora edulis (BPe) (obese + BPe, n = 7 (OB + BPe)) for 16 weeks. The...

It is known there are many environmental benefits when food is grown in the organic system. However, there is little scientific evidence to identify the variations and the real benefits of the nutrient levels of organic food. Therefore this review aimed to clarify the nutritional characteristics of organic foods such as eggs, milk and meat and high...
