Expected results

Design of kits and indexes (scores) related to the diagnosis and prognosis of physiological states related to the inflammatory state, obesity, nutritional quality (or adherence to a diet) and the predisposition to metabolic diseases. Likewise, kits for the personalization of therapeutic strategies.

  • Diagnostic and prognosis kits.

  • Kits of response or adherence to the diet.

 

Identification of new bioactive compounds useful in the control of body weight and the prevention of metabolic disorders:

  • Able to reduce or delay the digestion and absorption of macronutrients.

  • With antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

  • With lipolytic activity, which directly affects the release of fatty acids from adipose tissue.

  • With inhibitory action on adipogenesis, avoiding the creation of new adipose tissue and its hypertrophy.

  • Able to increase energy expenditure, basal metabolism, thermogenesis and beiging of adipose tissue.

 

Identification of new bioactive compounds, combination of foods and dietary patterns capable of:

  • Able to reverse the dysbiotic states associated with obesity and metabolic disorders.

  • Able to modulate the epigenetic alterations that are involved in metabolic memory or are commonly observed in obesity and its complications.
