Polyphenols treatment in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

protective effects are related to the high concentration of antioxidants in compounds of this diet. Since the 1950s, Ancel Keys and his co-workers have been studying the Mediterranean diet effects on health, and they found that Greek people, especially belonging to the island of Crete, had the longest life expectancy in the world until the 1960s, followed by the people of Southern Italy, Spain and France.[ 16 ] These data were confirmed by subsequent studies on the elderly population in Greece and other European Countries, and showed that the Mediterranean dietary pattern

The Green Tea Polyphenol(—)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate and its beneficial roles in chronic kidney disease

strategies to manage the patients with CKD. Green tea, originally cultivated in China, is considered as one of the healthiest beverages in the world. (-)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the major catechin of green tea extract, is known as a powerful antioxidant and reactive oxygen species scavenger [ 5 , 6 ] (chemical structure, Figure 1A ). During the past decade, the health-promoting effects of EGCG have been intensively investigated. It is shown to inhibit leukocyte chemotaxis, quench free radicals, chelate transition metals, and interrupt lipid peroxidation

Do statins induce or protect from acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease: An update review in 2018

dose-dependent beneficial effect on plasma cholesterol concentrations, and a comparable range and severity of adverse events. Atorvastatin and rosuvastatin are drugs with high cholesterol-lowering efficacy as compared with lovastatin, simvastatin, pravastatin, and fluvastatin, which have less cholesterol-lowering potency. Apart from an intrinsic cholesterol-lowering effect, statins also exhibit anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and plaque-stabilizing capacities that act in concert to prevent other than cardiovascular damage.[ 1 , 2 ] In particular, statins may affect
