Tocotrienols for normalisation of hepatic echogenic response in nonalcoholic fatty liver: a randomised placebo-controlled clinical trial

Posted December 30, 2013

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is one of the commonest liver disorders. Obesity, insulin resistance, lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress have been identified amongst the possible hits leading to the onset and progression of this disease. Nutritional evaluation of NAFLD patients showed a lower-than-recommended intake of vitamin E. Vitamin E is a family of 8 isoforms, 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. Alpha-tocopherol has been widely investigated in liver diseases, whereas no previous clinical trial has investigated tocotrienols for NAFLD. Aim of the study was to determine the effects of mixed tocotrienols, in normalising the hepatic echogenic response in hypercholesterolaemic patients with ultrasound-proven NAFLD.

Study: Tocomin SupraBio Improves Liver Stiffness Measurement In Patients

Posted November 6, 2013

At the recently concluded Asian Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver (APASL), a research team of medical doctors from the Philippines, led by Dr. Marilyn Arguillas shows that supplementation with Tocomin SupraBio patented and bio-enhanced full spectrum palm tocotrienol/tocopherol complex (manufactured by Carotech) at 100mg daily for 3 months significantly reduces liver stiffness in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

Camel milk ameliorates steatohepatitis, insulin resistance and lipid peroxidation in experimental non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Posted October 13, 2013

Camel milk (CM) is gaining increasing recognition due to its beneficial effects in the control and prevention of multiple health problems. The current study aimed to investigate the effects of CM on the hepatic biochemical and cellular alterations induced by a high-fat, cholesterol-rich diet (HCD), specifically, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

Enjoy That Morning Joe: Coffee and Tea May Prevent Fatty Liver Disease

Posted August 28, 2013

Researchers have found another benefit of drinking coffee and tea – they just may save your liver. The study, conducted by an international group scientists led by Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School (Duke-NUS) and the Duke University School of Medicine, suggests that drinking 4 cups of coffee or tea per day may help prevent non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, those interested in reducing their risk of NAFLD may want to opt for tea, as other studies on coffee are decidedly mixed.

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, a viscous soluble fiber, reduces insulin resistance and decreases fatty liver in Zucker Diabetic Fatty rats

Posted November 16, 2012

Diets producing a high glycemic response result in exaggerated insulin secretion which induces hepatic lipogenesis, contributing to development of insulin resistance and fatty liver. Viscous dietary fibers blunt the postprandial rise in blood glucose, however their effect on type 2 diabetes and obesity are not entirely known.

Posted May 21, 2012

A collaborative study involving researchers at the University of Alberta, the University of São Paulo in Brazil, and the Memorial University of Newfoundland has shown that creatine, a naturally occurring amino acid in the human body, may contain properties that help fight the onset of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease caused by a high-fat diet.
