SCOPE: High-fat diets are a likely cause of low-grade inflammation and obesity-related pathologies. This study measured the effects of a high-fat diet, in combination with two dietary supplements-betaine and polydextrose-on metabolism and inflammation in the adipose tissue of diet-induced obese mice. METHODS AND RESULTS: Forty male C57BL/6J mice were fed a high-fat diet for 8 weeks and compared with low-fat-diet-fed control animals (n = 10). For the last 4 weeks, the high-fat-diet-fed animals were supplemented with 1% betaine, 3...

Obesity, whose prevalence is increasing rapidly worldwide, is recognized as a risk factor for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, liver disease, and renal disease. To investigate metabolic changes in the urine of a rat model of obesity induced by a high-fat diet (HFD), rats were divided into the following four groups based on the diet type and degree of weight gain: normal-diet (ND) low gainers, ND high gainers, HFD low gainers, and HFD high gainers. Biochemical analyses of visceral fat-pad weight, plasma, and liver tissues were performed...

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of dietary betaine over a range of concentrations (between 0 and 0.5%) on growth and body composition in young feed-restricted pigs. Betaine is associated with decreased lipid deposition and altered protein utilization in finishing pigs, and it has been suggested that the positive effects of betaine on growth and carcass composition may be greater in energy-restricted pigs. Thirty-two barrows (36 kg, n = 8 pigs per group) were restrictively fed one of four corn-soybean meal-skim milk based diets (18...
