Nutrient Blend decreases inflammation and improves metabolism in overweight men

April 15, 2010

    Low-grade chronic (persistent) inflammation in overweight people is thought to play an important role in disease development. The nutrients Resveratrol, Green Tea Extract, Vitamin E, vitamin C, Fish Oils, and tomato extract were selected for their evidence-based anti-inflammatory properties and they were combined and given as supplements to 36 healthy overweight men with mildly elevated plasma C-reactive protein concentrations in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study with treatment periods of 5 weeks. Inflammatory markers were quantified in plasma and urine. Furthermore, 120 plasma proteins, 274 plasma metabolites (lipids, free fatty acids, and polar compounds) were quantified.
