  This study was done to investigate the effects of fermented soy pulp on the osteoporosis in ovariectomized rats. Sprague-Dawley female rats were randomly assigned to four groups as Sham Control (SC), Ovariectomized Control (OC), Ovariectomized and Soy Pulp (OSP) fed and Ovariectomized and Fermented Soy Pulp (OFSP) fed. All rats were fed on purified diets, supplemented with non-fermented and fermented soy pulp on basic diet for 7 weeks. It was observed that isoflavone aglycone was very high in soy pulp fermented for 12 h in comparison to non-fermented soy pulp. Body weight of the rats increased significantly (p<0.05) in comparison to other groups. Atrophy of uterus in OFSP group was significantly (p<0.05) prevented in comparison to OC group. The concentration of estradiol in OFSP group was higher than those of OC and OSP groups. The bone density in OFSP group was significantly (p<0.05) higher than those of OC and OSP groups. The histopathology indicated that OFSP group has better retarded the progress of osteoporosis than other groups. The results showed that isoflavone from the fermented soy pulp has prevented the osteoporosis in ovariectomized rats must be due to its estradiol like function. It is expected that the fermented soy pulp might serve as a functional food in osteoporosis of postmenopausal women.

  This study was performed to determine the hypolipidaemic effects of Allium tuberosum Rottl. (ATR), fermented Allium tuberosum Rottl. (FATR) and processed sulfur. Thirty male Wistar rats were divided into five groups: (i) CON (control, normal diet); (ii) HFD (high fat diet); (iii) HS (HFD+processed sulfur); (iv) AS (HFD+ATR+processed sulfur) and (v) FAS (HFD+FATR+ processed sulfur). Animals were fed the diets for six weeks. Body weights of the animals were recorded in the beginning and end of experiment. The animals were sacrificed, organ and tissue weights recorded and blood and liver samples were analyzed for various biochemical parameters. Body weight gain in the AS group was significantly (p<0.05) lower than the other groups. Spleen and kidney weights in FAS group were significantly (p<0.05) higher than the other groups. The weight of epididymal adipose tissue in AS group was significantly (p<0.05) lower than that of HFD group. The weight of retroperitoneal fat in HFD groups was significantly (p<0.05) higher than other groups. The concentration of aspartate amino transferase (AST) was significantly (p<0.05) higher in HFD group compared to HS, AS and FAS groups. Total liver lipid contents in the HFD group was significantly (p<0.05) higher than the other groups. AS and FAS group rats had significantly (p<0.05) lower triglyceride and total cholesterol compared to HFD group. All together, these results suggest that FATR and processed sulfur may play an important role in reducing body fat deposition and altering the serum and liver lipid profile in rats.
