Biochemical parameters were determined in liver, kidney, and blood at the end of the experimental period. Articles from Journal of Obesity are provided here courtesy of Hindawi Limited. After clotting, samples were centrifuged and serum was used for biochemical determinations. Band intensities were quantified by ImageJ software. LA-cp rats fed a high protein fiber diet.

Ingenieria Y Universidad22 1- At this time, animals fed HFD reached obesity status Figure 1. Increased adiposity during obesity greatly influences insulin sensitivity, glucose and lipid metabolism, and inflammation [ 3845 ].

These data indicate that yacon attenuates diet-induced obesity in rats by decreasing fat absorption.

Effect of yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) on colonic transit time in healthy volunteers.

AdipoQ is a novel adiposespecific gene dysregulated in obesity. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook to stay on top of the latest in scientific research.


Andean yacon root Smallanthus sonchifolius Poepp. Vol 18 No 2 Through vacuum impregnation using response surface. The average growth rate for rats on the HFD was PPARs, obesity, and inflammation.

Julio – Diciembre The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of yacon syrup on colon transit time in healthy volunteers. Consistently, body and visceral adipose weight were significantly lower in HFD SYfed rats when compared with all the other groups Figures 7 c and drl d. In all cases the Ref.

A surface response methodology was use to evaluate the product optimization. In this way, we analyzed whether yacon could modulate inflammatory markers in visceral fat investtigaciones serum.

One of the mechanisms by which the yacon root triggers weight loss seems to be a decrease in energy intake, given our observation of a lower food intake after yacon supplementation. Please type a message to the paper’s authors to explain your need for the paper. Additionally, adiponectin inveshigaciones leptin have been implicated in adipose tissue dysfunction [ 6 ].


Supplementary Materials Supplementary Materials Figure S1 provides evidence that yacon supplementation modifies lipid absorption at the intestinal level through an oral triglyceride loading test.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Inflammation, metaflammation and immunometabolic disorders. It has been shown that it reduces hepatic glucose production and stimulates glucose uptake and fatty acid oxidation in skeletal muscle [ 51 ].

The dried material was then pulverized to obtain yacon roots flour. Additionally, yacon roots present strong antioxidant activity and anti-inflammatory effects preventing the risks associated with metabolic diseases [ 27 — 29 ].

Also, it was shown that yacon improves beta invesrigaciones function and modulates the plasma insulin concentration in diabetic rats [ 2526 ].
