Quick Summary

In this meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, supplementation with anthocyanins or anthocyanin-rich fruits/fruit extracts improved several biomarkers of metabolic health.

What was studied?

The effect of anthocyanins or anthocyanin-rich fruits/fruit extracts on the levels of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c; a biomarker of glycemic control; primary outcome) in the context of type 2 diabetes (T2D).

The secondary outcomes were other biomarkers of glycemic control (insulin resistance and the levels of fasting glucose, 2-hour postprandial (postmeal) glucose, and fasting insulin), blood lipids (the levels of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides), and systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
