NUTRITIONAL RESEARCH

The mission of Nutrition Research is to serve as the journal for global communication of nutrition and life sciences on diet and health. The field of nutritional sciences includes, but is not limited to, the study of nutrients during growth, reproduction, aging, and disease.

There is extensive research done to find the connection between nutrition and chronic disease. Here are some of the finds:

MS

Here we show the dietary factors and lifestyle may exacerbate or ameliorate MS by modulating the inflammatory status of the disease both in relapsing-remitting MS and in primary-progressive MS. This is achieved by controlling both the metabolic and inflammatory pathways in the human cell and the composition of commensal gut microbiota. what increases inflammation are hypercaloric Western-style diets, characterized by high salt, animal fat, red meat, sugar-sweetened drinks, fried food, low fiber, and lack of physical exercise. The persistence of this type of diet upregulates the metabolism of human cells toward biosynthetic pathways including those of pro-inflammatory molecules and also leads to a dysbiotic gut microbiota, alteration of intestinal immunity, and low-grade systemic inflammation. Conversely, exercise and low-calorie diets based on the assumption of vegetables, fruit, legumes, prebiotics and probiotics act on nuclear receptors and enzymes that upregulate oxidative metabolism, downregulate the synthesis of pro-inflammatory molecules and restore or maintain a healthy symbiotic gut microbiota. Now that we know the molecular mechanisms by which dietary factors and exercise affect the inflammatory status in MS, we can expect that a nutritional intervention with anti-inflammatory food and dietary supplements can alleviate possible side effects of immune-modulatory drugs and the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and thus favor patient wellness.
