|Number of Subjects
||18-29, 30-44, 45-64
500-1,000mg of eucommia ulmoides (8% pinoresinol) daily for 8 weeks in prehypertensive and overweight/obese persons who were otherwise unmedicated and healthy noted a significant reduction in blood pressure (7.5/3.9mmHG systolic/diastolic) attributed to the beta-blocking properties of the herb, and a clinically nonsignificant increase in creatinine and glucose. It was insinuated (but data not disclosed) that no changes in weight or lipid panels occurred.
