The mechanism of promoted intestinal secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA) production by glutamine supplementation is investigated in a mouse model by Wenkai Ren and co-workers. In their work, which is highlighted on the front cover, it is found that glutamine influences the intestinal bacterial invasion and the activation of T cell-dependent and T cell-independent pathways, which leads to enhanced SIgA secretion.
On the inside cover, Myung-Sook Choi and co-workers show that 5% D-allulose supplementation in a high fat diet could normalize body fat in a diet-induced obesity animal model under isocaloric pair-fed conditions. D-allulose lowers plasma and hepatic lipids while elevating fecal lipids in the small intestine in mice. D-allulose also regulates the lipid regulating enzyme activities of liver and adipose tissue.
Consumption of olive oil enriched with its own polyphenols and those from thyme yield benefits on lipoprotein atherogenic ratios and subclasses profile distribution. These insights of Rosa Solà, Alan T. Remaley, and co-workers, presented on the back cover, may be a useful tool to increase olive oil cardioprotective benefits, without increasing the amount of consumed fat.
