Elasticity Discovers New Friend.
and Metabolism study suggests
that antioxidant supplementation has
the potential to alleviate the
atherosclerotic damage caused by
excessive production of reactive
oxygen species (ROS). The study
evaluated the effects of prolonged
antioxidant treatment on arterial
elasticity, inflammatory and metabolic
measures in patients with multiple
cardiovascular risk factors.
In a randomized, placebo-controlled
study, subjects were randomly assigned
to receive daily oral supplementation
with vitamin C (1000 mg/day), vitamin
E (400 i.u/day), coenzyme Q10 (120
mg/day) and selenium (200 mcg/day) or
placebo for six months. Patients were
evaluated for lipid profile, HbA1C,
insulin, C-peptide, hs-CRP, among
others. Arterial elasticity was
evaluated using pulse wave contour
Antioxidant-treated patients exhibited
significant increases in large
arterial elasticity index (LAEI) as
well as small arterial elasticity
index (SAEI). A significant decline
HbA1C and a significant increase in
HDL-cholesterol were also observed. In
the placebo group, significant changes
in LAEI, SAEI or metabolic measures
were not observed.
As a short-term therapy, antioxidant
increased large and small artery
elasticity in patients with multiple
cardiovascular risk factors. This
beneficial vascular effect was
associated with an improvement in
glucose and lipid metabolism as well
as decrease in blood pressure.

Heart disease costs the national

the cost of will triple. Obviously,
the current model is not working.
What will the future bring? It depends
