    1H NMR serum metabolomics analysis and gut microbial profiling in lean and high fat/sucrose diet-induced obese rats across pre-pregnancy, gestation, and lactation is carried out, with the goal of identifying metabolic pathways involved in the developmental programming of offspring obesity. Differences between maternal groups in one-carbon and branched chain amino acid metabolism are identified, as well as gut microbiota composition, while also highlighting pathways likely involved in key metabolic adaptations to pregnancy and lactation.

  4. The Efficacy of Nanoemulsion-Based Delivery to Improve Vitamin D Absorption: Comparison of In Vitro and In Vivo Studies

    In addition to its importance in bone health, Vitamin D (VD) has a wide range of biological functions. About a third of the population in the U.S. is at risk of VD inadequacy. More importantly, even with the wide application of food fortification, VD deficiency is still increasing. This work, including both in vitro and in vivo studies, demonstrates that the nano-based delivery system improves the bioavailability of VD absorption, and thus has the potential to be utilized as a novel strategy to improve VD status, which remains a critical public health issue in our society.
