Protective Effect Of Chronic Garlic Intake On Elastic Properties Of Aorta In The Elderly
Notes for this study:
||Uncontrolled / observational study
|Number of Subjects
In older adults who reported consumption of garlic supplements (300-900mg range, average of 460mg) over the previous two years, it was noted that garlic supplement ingestion.
PWV, a measure of aortic stiffness, was lower with garlic and the difference between groups was more notable with older participants; similar trends were noted with EVR (elastic vascular resistance) a measure of blood flow.
