    It is shown that green tea extract may be beneficial under normal metabolic conditions. However, under specific biological conditions of cholesterol accumulation in the liver and under specific diets, a polyphenol rich green tea supplement induces adverse effects.

  4. Onionin A, a sulfur-containing compound isolated from onions, impairs tumor development and lung metastasis by inhibiting the protumoral and immunosuppressive functions of myeloid cells

    Yukio Fujiwara, Hasita Horlad, Daisuke Shiraishi, Junko Tsuboki, Rino Kudo, Tsuyoshi Ikeda, Toshihiro Nohara, Motohiro Takeya and Yoshihiro Komohara

    Onionin A (ONA), a new stable sulfur-containing compound isolated from onion, inhibits not only the immunosuppressive functions of myeloid cells, but also macrophage-induced tumor cell proliferation. ONA may be a potential new tool for antitumor therapy and prevention due to its effects in inhibiting the protumoral functions of myeloid cells and activating antitumor immune responses.

  5. High phenolics Rutgers Scarlet Lettuce improves glucose metabolism in high fat diet-induced obese mice

    Diana M. Cheng, Diana E. Roopchand, Alexander Poulev, Peter Kuhn, Isabel Armas, William D. Johnson, Andrew Oren, David Ribnicky, Ehud Zelzion, Debashish Bhattacharya and Ilya Raskin

    Rutgers Scarlet Lettuce (RSL) phenolics, chlorogenic acid, quercetin malonyl-glucoside, and cyanidin malonyl-glucoside, contribute to attenuation of post-prandial hyperglycemia. Changes in gut microbiota are due to the microbiota accessible carbohydrates in RSL and green lettuce diets rather than RSL phenolics, which are likely metabolized, absorbed, or degraded before reaching the lower intestine.
