Quick Summary

In this randomized controlled trial, supplementation with nanocurcumin was associated with favorable effects on inflammation but did not improve mood or nicotine dependence among smokers.

What was studied?

The effect of nanocurcumin on cardiometabolic risk factors, mood, and nicotine dependence in smokers.

The primary outcomes were anxiety, depression, and nicotine dependence (assessed using the Beck Anxiety Inventory, Beck Depression Inventory, and Nicotine Dependence Syndrome Scale, respectively).

The cardiometabolic risk factors assessed were blood lipids, markers of glycemic control (fasting glucose, insulin, HOMA-IR), total antioxidant capacity, glutathione, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (CRP), malondialdehyde (MDA), and nitric oxide (NO). (CRP is a biomarker of inflammation.[1] MDA and NO have been proposed as markers of inflammation and oxidative stress, but their diagnostic values are not as well established.)[2][3].
