Cover Story: Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) like cardiovascular diseases (CVD) cause most global deaths. Metabolic syndrome (MetS), linked to dyslipidemia, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity, can be influenced by natural products like marine macroalgae. These products, rich in bioactive compounds and dietary fiber, are increasingly explored for preventing diseases. This review focuses on algal polysaccharides' (agar, alginates, carrageenan) efficacy in preventing CVD, emphasizing their impact on disease mechanisms and discussing relevant human and animal studies. It also highlights the benefits of dietary fiber and macroalgae consumption on intestinal health and their relationship with CVD.View this paper

Macroalgae as a Source of Functional Foods in the Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases

Received: 22 July 2023;  Published: 29 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2304024


Noncommunicable diseases (NCD), such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD), are responsible for the majority of annual deaths worldwide. Dyslipidemia, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity, among others, can enhance the onset of metabolic syndrome (MetS). The integration of natural products in the diet, such as marine macroalgae or hydrocolloids extracted from them, has been extensively studied. The application of these substances in the prevention of pathologies is expanding due to the high content of [...]

Impact of Breeding on Free Amino Acids of Wholegrain Flour in Wheat and Role of Phenology Genes

Received: 18 August 2023;  Published: 24 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2304023


Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is pivotal to global food security, with its energy-rich grains that are also the major vegetable protein source in human diets. Decades of primary emphasis on grain yield improvement have delivered increased gains worldwide, but the grain protein content has declined. Since amino acids are biosynthetic precursors of proteins, this research hypothesized that their contents in the wholegrain flour have also been impacted by pa [...]

The Effects of Supplemental Vitamin C in Mandibular Fracture Patients: A Randomized Clinical Trial

Received: 23 June 2023;  Published: 21 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2304021


Vitamin C is an oxidative stress mediator and essential cofactor in wound healing. The objective of this study was to investigate the clinical and biochemical effects of vitamin C supplementation on outcomes in patients undergoing mandibular fracture repair. We also aimed to evaluate the effects of sociodemographic, fracture, and treatment characteristics on post-operative clinical outcomes in these patients. The investigators conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical tri [...]

Influences of Household Processing Methods on Nutritional Composition, Anti-nutritional Factors and Antioxidant Activities of Foxtail Millet

Received: 17 July 2023;  Published: 09 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpn.2304020


The present investigation aims to study the influence of household processing methods, such as soaking, germination, and steam cooking, on nutritional composition (proximates, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins), antinutrient factors (phytochemicals: tannins, total phenols, phytic acid; enzyme inhibitors: trypsin and α-amylase inhibitors) and antioxidant properties of whole grains of foxtail millet. The contents of total ash (1.42%), fat (3.02 g/100 g), and mineral chromium (12.83 mg/100 g) wer [...]
