BACKGROUND: Ganoderma lucidum has been purported as a potent remedy in the treatment and prevention of several ailments, including hypertension. This study aimed to explore the anti-ACE potential of protein fractions from the mycelia of G. lucidum. METHODS: Ganoderma lucidum mycelia were cultivated by submerged fermentation in a liquid medium containing brown sugar and spent brewer's yeast. Intracellular proteins were fractionated from mycelia crude water extract by ammonium sulphate precipitation, and their angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitory activity was evaluated...

BACKGROUND: This study was conducted to investigate the effects of Brewer's yeast supplementation on serum lipoproteins and blood pressure in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. METHODS: In a randomized double blind clinical trial, 90 adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus were recruited, and divided randomly into 2 groups, trial group received brewer's yeast (1800 mg/day) and control group received placebo for 12 weeks. Weight, BMI, food consumption (based on 24 hour food recall), fasting serum lipoproteins (Cholesterol, Triglyceride, LDL-c, HDL-c), systolic and diastolic blood pressures were measured before and after the intervention...

It was reported that angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) plays an important role in increasing blood pressure. Recently, it was reported that several food hydrolysates have ACE inhibitory effects in the spontaneous hypertensive rat (SHR) model and mildly hypertensive subjects. Therefore, the anti-hypertensive effects of brewer's yeast BY-G were investigated, which contains many kinds of beneficial nutrients (vitamins, minerals, nucleic acids, glutathione, amino acids, etc.). The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-hypertensive effects of BY-G and its component peptides obtained by enzymatic treatment...

This study was designed to investigate the supplemental effects of brewer's yeast on serum glucose and lipids in Chinese adults. Twenty-two participants (8 males and 14 females) were recruited from Pingtung city. Mean age of the group was 51 yr, and fasting values of total cholesterol and glucose were from 3.21 to 6.90 and 4.3 to 6.2 mmol/L, respectively. Before supplementation, a 75 g oral glucose load was administered after an overnight (9 h) fast. Blood was drawn before and at 30, 60, 90, and 120 min after the glucose load...

Elephantopus scaber has been used in Brazil as a traditional remedy to cause diuresis, antipyresis and to eliminate bladder stones. In the current study, aqueous and hydroalcoholic extracts of whole plants were tested for acute toxicity, analgesic, antipyretic, antiinflammatory, cardiovascular, diuretic and constipating activities. Both extracts (0.3-6 g/kg i.p.) induced writhing, loss of muscle tone, ataxia, prostration and death in mice. No analgesic effects of these extracts were detected using mouse hot-plate and acetic acid-induced writhing tests...
