Cover Story: Diet is known to play an important role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which may be partially influenced by the composition and functionality of the gut microbiota. Herein, we review the impact of dietary macronutrients, notable supplements, and selected dietary interventions on the gut microbiota and its effect on the microbiome.View this paper

Postprandial Glucose Responses to Standardised Meals Consumed After Moderate- and High-Intensity Exercise Bouts Across Standard School Days in Healthy Adolescents

Received: 30 March 2022;  Published: 15 August 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2203020


Exercise-induced moderation of postprandial glycaemia in adolescents is unclear and has not been examined under free-living conditions. We assessed the effect of moderate-intensity exercise (MIE) and high-intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE) bouts on subsequent postprandial glycaemic responses across three standard school days. Fourteen healthy adolescents (13 ± 1 years) completed three conditions in the following order across consecuti [...]

Dietary Modulation of the Gut Microbiome in Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Received: 28 April 2022;  Published: 09 August 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2203019


Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease, is a chronic relapsing-remitting inflammatory state of the gastrointestinal (GI) system. The cause of IBD is multifactorial, encompassing factors of genetics, environment, and the host immune system, initiating a complex interplay of maladaptive host immune responses and subsequent chronic inflammation. Aberrant host immune responses are at least in part due to changes in the commensal microbiome, which can [...]

Role of Diet in the Pathogenesis of Colorectal Polyps and Cancer

Received: 24 April 2022;  Published: 01 August 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2203018


Colorectal cancer (CRC) is currently the third most common cancer within the United States among both males and females, with increasing rates occurring in younger individuals compared to the past. Multiple environmental and social aspects including diet may be contributing to this increase in CRC rates. The aim of this review is to examine foods containing high fructose corn syrup, processed meats, and red meats which have shown to be linked to an increase in incidence of CRC. These [...]

Nutritional Health and Bioflavonoids

Received: 23 March 2022;  Published: 21 July 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2203017


Flavonoids are phytochemicals (polyphenols) of plant origin. They can trap free oxygen radicals generated by mitochondria and other electronic transport chains, thereby inhibiting inflammatory and carcinogenic changes in vivo and in vitro. Why the body requires these compounds for the well-being of the organism and the maintenance of human health remains unclear. However, a deficit of flavonoids could lead to molecular malfunctions in cells, organelles, and macromolecules. This manuscript descri [...]

Senescence and DNA Damage in Adipocytes and Fat Tissues and Its Potential Amelioration through Nutritional Interventions

Received: 13 April 2022;  Published: 05 July 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2203016


Accumulating evidence demonstrates that senescence and the associated inflammatory phenotype (SASP) also occur in post-mitotic cells such as mature adipocytes. Visceral adipose tissue in humans is susceptible to inflammation due to nutritional imbalance and ageing. However, while adipose tissue has been well researched in the context of obesity, senescence of differentiated adipocytes has not been investigated thoroughly. Our group recently demonstrated that ageing and normal ad libitu [...]
