Nutrition III Final Exam Study Guide

2010 Final study guide Nut 622 – Dr. Seibert

Week 6

Be able to identify examples of phenol, terpene, lignan, thiols foods and their nutritional function within the body

PHENOLS: blue, purple, red; isoflavones: phytoestrogens, genestein, flavonoids: anthocyanins (anti-ox) and quercetin (mast cell stabilizer)
TERPENES: yellow, orange, red; lycopene (decr CA of prost, lung, stomach), limonids (incr p450 fx)
LIGNANS: flax, wheat bran, rye, oat, buckwht; incr bifidobact, anti-mitotic, anti-ox, may prevent hormone sensitive CA
THIOLS: crucifers, indoles (incr p450); allyl sulfides in garlic (incr phase 2, decr mutagenesis, incr macrophage and T-cell activity)

GI – know bifidobacteria role with Short chain Fatty Acid, its byproducts role in Gut,
Bifido breaks down indigestible carbs to SCFAs; propionate and acetatae go to liver to make glutamine, glutamate, acetoacetate which are good for the SI; butyric acid direction feeds enterocytes

GI – know which bacteria colony increase sIgA levels

Identify GI trt for diarrhea from antibiotic therapy
??? didn't see answer in notes so this from my head: probiotics (Sarcomyces boulardii, Bifido and lactobacilli), glutamine, butyric acid, grape seed extract, all directed at keeping microbial population from shifting to the pathogenic, and at supporting healthy enterocytes

Be able to identify foods that activate Phase II conjugation reactions
from notes: crucifers, garlic/onions, citrus (limonoids)
from previous notes: fish oil, dill
also need: glutathione, glycine, glucuronic acid, cystein, methionine, taurine

Week 7

Know pros/cons of using capsules, powders, tablets, liquids and gel caps
capsules: pro: more pure, con: may not dissolve, less per cap
powders: pro: lots/dose, cons: messy, taste bad
liquids: pro: already liquid, con: taste, smell
gel caps: pro: easy to swallow, no taste, cons: mb large but still less dose than liquid

Be able to calculate in mg elemental calcium from calcium carbonate given in mgs
CaC03 contains 40% elemental Ca+

Know folate’s role in vascular function and its end product formed
5MTHF is converted to NO using BH4 and vitamin C
also presence of folate reduces homocysteine, less MI, stroke, miscarriage, depression
serotonin-->melatonin is another pathway dependent on folate

Be able toidentify what supplement industry’s cGMPs guarantee
consistency but not quality
content, strength, potency, purity

Identify most common “other ingredient” used in supplements – HINT :experiment done in class
magnesium stearate

Know definition of a phytosome
a composite of a botanical extract and a phospholipid that has the extract on the outside
opposite of a liposome
botanical is usually a flavonoid
phospholipid is usually phosphatidyl choline
composite increases absorption of the botanical by 5-20x

Know key Mech Of Action (MAO) for curcumin
which one is key? they are all key.
some mechanisms of curcumin:
inhibits NF-kB, TNF alpha, IL-1, 2, 6, 8, 12, decr Cox2 and Lox pathways, upregs p53

Know methylation pathway & nutrients formed
she always wants us to know this and I have studied it 100x now and still don't know what she thinks she has taught us.
SAM-CH3 donates the methyl group to proteins and DNA
also forms adenosine
results in homocyteine which can with the addition of serine be used to make glutathione
or MTHF-CH3 can donate a methyl group to it, cofactor is B12-->becomes methionine
methionine acted on by ATP becomes SAM, that's the cycle
folic-->DHF-->THF-->methylene THF is from my notes taken in guest lecture class
all these things with TH in them depend on folate

Week 8

Celiac’s dz – what in diet pt should avoid
duh. gluten: wheat, barley, rye, tamari (mb cow's milk, soy)
OK: buckwheat, oats

cathartics short term only: cascara, aloe, senna

Know secondary nutrients used
Vit C 1gm/20mins w/ 1/2 cup water and repeat until BM (this is her fave)
Mg up to 800mg/day
FOS 4-15g/day-->incr butyrate

Diarrhea - what in diet pt should avoid

Mg+, vit C
coffee, dairy, food sensitivities

Use of primary supplements
probiotics: S. boulardii, bifidobact, active yogurt
secondary: brewer's yeast (why?), bovine colostrum, carob in applesauce for kids
psyylium is non infectious
charcoal to remove toxins

IBS– what in diet pt should avoid

Crohns- what in diet pt should avoid
sugar, fat, proteins, allergies

Know foods that trigger histamine release

fruit: strawberries, bananas, papayas, pineapple
nitrates: sausage, wine
eggs, milk

Use of primary/secondary supplements
primary: EPA/DHA 3-5g, vit D
secondary: multi, Fe, Zn, vit D, B12/folate, S.boulardii, lipase, vit A (if not preg)

UC- what in diet pt should avoid
sugar, fat, allergies

Use of primary/secondary supplements
no primary listed but I think it's a mistake in the notes
maybe these are primary in her mind tho slide says secondary:
butyrate suppository, fish oil 3-5g, folic
secondary: probiotic, multi, psyllium, boswelia

Week 9

Know ND nutritional trt for nephritic syndrome/pyelonephritis
or does she mean nephrotic syndrome as she says in notes? there is a difference
for the neph syndrome: fish oil, garlic, prot, Zn, B6, vit D
for pyelo: cranberry, D-mannose, proteolytic enzymes, acidophilus

Key nutrient used to prevent stone formation
potassium, citric acid/lemon

Safe calcium form to use with stone formers – not hyperabsorbers

Identify foods that are alkaline vs. acidic
acidic forming: meats, dairy, coffee, PB, cranberries, prunes, plums
alkaline forming: veggies, all fruits besides the 3 listed above

Know ways to remove intestinal toxins
fiber, bentonite clay, SCFAs

Know Phase I Antioxidants used and role they are believed to play in CYP 450
antioxidants: bioflavonoids: quercetin, green tea, milk thistle, ginkgo, anthocyanins
NAC requires selenium to make GSH
CoQ10 and vit C needed for ETC, C to stabilize, CoQ10 as a component
vit E and anthocyanins to stop lipid peroxidation

Know role of cruciferous veggies & grapefruit juice in Phase I pathways
crucifers and DIM ramp up phase 1, hydroxylate xenoestrogens
grapefruit inhibits phase 1, so does aging

Know role of curcumin in CYP 450 detox pathway
inhibits phase 1, stimulates phase 2
prevents cancer
inhibits p450 1A1/1A2 and 2B1/2B2

Know role of Phase II conjugate agents (eg NAC)
NAC-->GSH (glutathione): needs B6, is protective vs xenobiotics
sulfation: remove RX, metab CATS and bile acids, need molybdenum
(cysteine, methionine, molybdenum)
glucuronidation: calcium-d-glucarate, cancer fighter
methylation: need methionine, SAM3, adds methyl to est, converts homo-->methionine
amino acids: need glycine, glutamine (ammonia detox) and taurine (bile acid conjugation)

Know which key digestive enzymeneeds to be replaced in chronic pancreatitis pt

Week 10

What key B vits are used in infertility for men/women?
men: B12
women: B6

Role of Vit C infertility of males who smoking
smoking-->decr sperm count
vit C helps counter that reduction
