The Mediterranean lifestyle over the years has proven to be the best.
It consists of a diet rich in seasonal fruits and vegetables, fish, little red meat, olive oil and legumes, moderate physical activity and an active social life.
Thanks to this way of life, people are able to live a healthy life.
Specifically, it is the natural molecules contained in the typical vegetables of the Mediterranean diet that make the difference.
These benefit the body and help prevent the onset of certain diseases, such as Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), Lymphedema and Lipedema.
With this in mind, MAGISNAT professors and researchers decided to study some of these diseases and the positive effects of natural molecules on them.
In particular, with regard to Lipedema, a disease that involves the accumulation of adipose tissue mainly in the thighs, legs and arms, the AKR1C1 gene has been identified as the first gene associated with this disease. Thanks to targeted studies on AKR1C1, some natural molecules, such as polyphenols and flavonoids, have been proposed as modulators of this gene, suggesting their possible therapeutic effects for lipedema.
