Effect Of Alpha-lipoic Acid And Exercise Training On Cardiovascular Disease Risk In Obesity With Impaired Glucose Tolerance
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Study conducted in 24 obese subjects with Impaired Glucose Tolerance (pre-diabetes). After a 12 week introductory phase, all subjects took 1g ALA but half paired with exercise.
Found that ALA without exercise showed negative effects on blood lipids (LDL) despite increased whole-body anti-oxidant potential, but pairing with exercise abolished this effect.
