This was a pilot investigation of 30 men and women with a BMI > 27kg/m² over a 24 week period. It aimed to determine whether virtual gastric band (VGB) hypnotherapy has an effect on weight loss in overweight adults, compared to relaxation hypnotherap... Read More

The dietary flavonol quercetin ameliorates angiotensin II-induced redox signaling imbalance in a human umbilical vein endothelial cell model of endothelial dysfunction via ablation of p47ᵖʰᵒˣ expression (2016)
Journal Article
Jones, H. S., Gordon, A., Magwenzi, S. G., Naseem, K., Atkin, S. L., & Courts, F. L. (2016). The dietary flavonol quercetin ameliorates angiotensin II-induced redox signaling imbalance in a human umbilical vein endothelial cell model of endothelial dysfunction via ablation of p47ᵖʰᵒˣ expression. Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, 60(4), 787-797. https://doi.org/10.1002/mnfr.201500751

Scope: Quercetin is reported to reduce blood pressure in hypertensive but not normotensive humans, but the role of endothelial redox signaling in this phenomenon has not been assessed. This study investigated the effects of physiologically obtainable... Read More
