The system redox imbalance is one of the pathways related to obesity-related cardiac dysfunction. Lycopene is considered one of the best antioxidants. The aim of this study was to test if the tomato-oleoresin would be able to recovery cardiac function by improving β-adrenergic response due its antioxidant effect. A total of 40 animals were randomly...

The high consumption of fat and sugar contributes to the development of obesity and co-morbidities, such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between dyslipidemia and cardiac dysfunction induced by western diet consumption. Wistar rats were randomly divided into two experim...

Purpose High-sugar intake and obesity are strinctly related to oxidative and inflammatory damages which underlie developments of many severe clinical conditions. This study aimed to investigate the effects of a lycopene supplementation (Lyc-suppl) on protein carbonylation, lipid content and inflammatory marker in liver of obese rats treated with a...

... In several studies, a high-energy diet is expressed as a Western or high-density-energy diet. These diets are characterized by high-sugar and high-saturated fat foods [2,3]. Sugar is consumed mainly in sweet drinks, sweetened grains, table sugar, syrups, candies, and dairy products [4]. ...
... 42 In accordance with another study, Lyc supplementation inhibited protein carbonylation in both high-oil and high-carbohydrate diets, and it also reduced lipid accumulation and reduced inflammation. 43 Obesity caused by a poor diet is a well-known risk factor for kidney disease. 44 The key findings are that a high-fat diet causes inflammation in rat kidneys, as demonstrated by a marked rise in IL-1β, TNF-α, and NF-κB. ...
