Speech
Microalgae as functional foods for the prevention and treatment of metabolic alterations

Abstract
Obesity is a major heath concern being associated with several chronic and life-threatening diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and metabolic disorders collectively defined as metabolic syndrome. In an experimental model of metabolic syndrome, the microalgae Arthrospira Platensis and T-isochrysis Lutea improved the lipid profile and reduced blood pressure. T. Lutea also showed effects similar to those of the drug fenofibrate, without exhibiting its hepatotoxicity.
These data suggest that A. platensis could be tested as a complementary strategy for the control of metabolic syndrome and related complications and that T. Lutea deserves to be explored for human use.
