Xanthohumol (XN) is a flavonoid found in hops, the flowers of the hop plant Humulus lupulus. XN exhibits anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. In collaboration with researchers at Oregon State University, a randomized, double-blind, cross-over study in healthy participants was conducted to determine if a protein matrix affected the bioavailability of XN when orally consumed. The circulating concentration of XN and its major metabolites were significantly higher when the spent hops-rice protein matrix preparation was consumed vs. the standard control spent…

by Robert Silverman, DC, MS, CNS   When your joints ache, don’t open the medicine cabinet for a pain pill. Instead, head to the grocery store to find healthful—and delicious—foods the support joint health instead. Sweet Potatoes The deep orange color of a sweet potato comes from the rich supply of beta-carotene it contains. Beta-carotene is the natural precursor of vitamin A (retinol). When you eat a sweet potato, your body converts some of the beta-carotene into vitamin A. The rest…

This conversation took place at ASPEN Clinical Nutrition Week 2015 and was moderated by Robert Martindale, MD. In this video segment, he discusses the question, can over-supplementation of specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs) lead to pathway down-regulation. The conversation took place with Dr. Stephen McClave, Dr. Jesmond Dalli, and Dr. Todd Rice. The conversation is part of a series on inflammation entitled, Inflammation: Should we Block or Accelerate Its Resolution? Dr. Martindale asks if the body might down-regulate the production of…

This animation features information on the role of inflammation in managing insults and injury to the body. Infection, wounds, poor diet, and aging are causes of acute inflammation. Acute inflammation helps the body to heal and helps tissue to return to homeostasis. When inflammation becomes chronic, however, as is common in many chronic diseases, it can destroy tissues and leave the body in poorer health. Science has now shown us that inflammation resolution is an active process that is controlled by specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs),…

During periods of over-nutrition, excess energy is stored in white adipose tissue (WAT); continuing expansion of WAT may lead to obesity. Obesity alters the cellular physiology of adipocytes, the cells of WAT. In the context of obesity, adipocytes secrete elevated levels of free fatty acids and adipokines, but decreased levels of adiponectin. These pathophysiologic changes have many effects. Elevated free fatty acids contribute to insulin resistance, oxidative stress, inflammation, and impaired arterial flow regulation Download the PDF

This research review discusses how the combination of undenatured type II collagen and tetrahydro iso-alpha acids help revitalize joint function and support an active lifestyle. Arthritis is not a single condition. In fact, there are more than 100 different forms of arthritis. The 2 most common types of arthritis, whose main feature is joint pain, are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). OA is a degenerative joint disease characterized by active bone remodeling, articular cartilage degradation, and synovial inflammation resulting…

Dyslipidemia is a prominent risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD) and impacts over half of US adults. Lifestyle interventions, particularly those incorporating medical nutrition therapy, are essential in the management of dyslipidemia, to halt progression towards advanced CVD and metabolic disease. The primary objective of this multi-site, prospective case series was to measure changes in the plasma atherogenic lipid profile and metabolic syndrome-related variables in 24 overweight patients with dyslipidemia at baseline, 4 weeks after daily consumption of a…
