Trial Length n/a
Number of Subjects 50

Notes for this study:
50 persons of mixed genders with type II diabetes were recruited and consumed 100mg *per kg* bodyweight daily for 8 weeks, a rather large dose.

Total anti-oxidant capacity increased after supplementation, and although Superoxide dismutase increased another important anti-oxidant enzyme (Glutathione Peroxidase) did not. MDA was unchanged.
