Vitamins and Weight Loss: How Vitamins Affect Fat Burning Exercises, Bariatric Surgery, and Obesity Related Diseases (Journal of Personalized and Systems Medicine)

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

As obesity has become a serious health problem globally, more attention is needed about nutritional problems in the overweight and obese population, especially about vitamins and oxidative stress. Scientific studies have found close relationships between vitamins and obesity. For example, childhood obesity is often associated with an increased risk of low vitamin B12 concentration.
The condition of deficiencies in several vitamins is especially serious in those with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and after gastric bypass surgery. Individuals with deficiencies in some vitamins are more difficult to lose fat mass, and burn less fat during fat burning exercises. Low levels of certain vitamins may perturb cellular functions and impair insulin action, glucose metabolism and other metabolic processes.
Weight loss interventions are often associated with reduced intake of micronutrients, such as vitamin B6, calcium and vitamin E. Several vitamins have been found to play important roles in food intake and weight control. Supplementation of these vitamins may be helpful not only for weight loss, but also for the prevention of diabetes and other obesity-related diseases.
Certain diets can improve vitamin status and the whole dietary quality, and help maintain fat-free mass during the weight loss time. The right dosages are necessary after gastric surgeries for obesity, to adjust the reduced serum vitamin levels. Many vitamins are antioxidants. Correct dosages of vitamin supplementation may also help reduce systemic oxidative stress in overweight and obese individuals. Effects and applications of vitamin A, B, C, D, and E supplementation on controlling body weight, cholesterol, and oxidative damages are discussed here.

    Natural Antioxidants and Weight Loss: Anti-Obesity and Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Polyphenol Extracts from Fruits and Herbs (Journal of Personalized and Systems Medicine)

    Saturday, September 8th, 2012

    Polyphenols are chemicals found in many plants. Polyphenols are usually antioxidants that can protect cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Polyphenols include tannins, lignins, and flavonoids. Many polyphenols have anti-obesity activities and are beneficial for weight loss. Aging and obesity may lead to inflammatory and oxidative conditions. Inflammation and oxidative stress are also important pathological factors in obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, fatty liver, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. Polyphenol extracts from fruits and herbs such as apples and green tea can inhibit inflammation, lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels, and reduce risks of heart diseases. These natural antioxidants can be used as dietary supplements without evident adverse effects. The latest discoveries and studies of cellular and molecular mechanisms of such polyphenols suggest that they can be potential agents for the treatment of obesity and associated diseases.

    Excerpts:

    “Recent studies have elucidated the possible effects of… for weight loss. For example, … has been found to reduce dietary lipid absorption in humans… Supplementation with … stopped diet-induced obesity. …treatment also showed a positive effect on improving mood. Short-term treatment has been found to reverse preexisting high-fat-induced metabolic pathologies in obese subjects. In the long-term, … treatment can inhibit the development of obesity, symptoms associated with the metabolic syndrome, and fatty liver.”

    “The tested group took the supplement for twelve weeks. The study found that ingestion of … led to the reduction of total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol levels. The supplement also improved the visceral fat area …. No adverse reactions were observed. …These studies demonstrate that … may help regulate fat metabolism, protect against inflammation, and be beneficial for obese and aging problems.”

    “Such studies suggest that … has properties as a potent antioxidant. … can attenuate inflammatory changes caused by adipocytes and macrophages in obesity, and may be helpful for relieving conditions of oxidative stress in obese individuals.”

    “As inflammation plays an important role in the pathological process of obesity, the immune-regulation effect of … may be helpful for improving conditions in obese individuals.”

    “Furthermore, the level of serum high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol was increased…, while the low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol was decreased. These results suggest that … has the potential to reduce serum glucose and cholesterol levels. The extract may be helpful for relieving diabetes and obesity.”

    “The study suggests that … have inhibitory effects on high-fat diet induced obesity. Such effects may be mediated through the inhibition of carbohydrate and lipid absorption from the small intestine.”

    “These effects may help explain the anti-cancer effects of …. As cancer is also an obesity-related disease, … can be a potential candidate to be used as a therapeutic agent for both obesity and cancer.”
