Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
In a pilot study on persons at high risk for cardiovascular death and already on statin and aspirin therapy, further administration of 1,200mg aged garlic extract (relative to a placebo add-on) for one year reduced the progression in coronary calcium from 22% down to 7.5%. Most other parameters including RBC glutathione concentrations, were unaffected.
