Gender- And Age-related Variations In Blood Viscosity In Normal Volunteers: A Study Of The Effects Of Extract Of Allium Sativum And Ginkgo Biloba

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 60
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29, 30-44, 45-64, 65+
Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 250mg of garlic oil (21.5% diallyl disulfide) appears to reduce blood viscosity, but it failed to reach statistical significance relative to placebo; the reference drug, 80mg of EGb-761 extract from ginkgo biloba, was effective.
