Impact Of L-citrulline Supplementation And Whole-body Vibration Training On Arterial Stiffness And Leg Muscle Function In Obese Postmenopausal Women With High Blood Pressure
Notes for this study:
||Pulse wave velocity (m/s). Mean and SEM. Carotid-femoral. Exercise control: before 46.9 ± 1.4, after 46.0 ± 1.3. L-citrulline control: before 46.7 ± 1.3, after 46.7 ± 1.5. Combination: before 47.1 ± 1.3, after 46.2 ± 1.4.
|Number of Subjects
In this randomized, placebo-controlled trial, 41 obese postmenopausal women with prehypertension or stage 1 hypertension took 6 g of l-citrulline daily with or without whole-body vibrational training, or underwent whole-body vibrational training without citrulline for 8 weeks.
The combination group saw a statistically significant greater increase in leg lean mass index than the group that only received the training, but body fat percentage, appendicular lean mass index, and pulse wave velocity of the carotid-femoral artery, femoral-ankle, and brachial-ankle weren't significantly different, though there was a somewhat greater reduction.
