Studies related to Lipid Peroxidation and Spirulina

Ergogenic And Antioxidant Effects Of Spirulina Supplementation In Humans

Effect Decrease
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length n/a
Number of Subjects 9
Gender n/a
Notes for this study:
6g of spirulina for 4 weeks was associated with prolonged time to exhaustion in a 2 hour run secondary to increased fat oxidation, and also suppressed parameters of oxidation.

Preventive Effects Of Spirulina Platensis On Skeletal Muscle Damage Under Exercise-induced Oxidative Stress

Effect Decrease
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length n/a
Number of Subjects 16
Gender n/a
Notes for this study:
Spirulina, at 2.5g thrice a day (7.5g) taken with soy protein as placebo in healthy students was associated with, over 3 weeks, decreased lipid peroxidation (MDA) and an increase in lactate with decrease in lactate dehydrogenase. Time to exhaustion increased in spirulina.

A Randomized Study To Establish The Effects Of Spirulina In Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients

Effect Decrease
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 37
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 45-64
Body Types Average
Notes for this study:
8g Spirulina daily for 12 weeks benefitted lipid metabolism in diabetics and lowered lipid peroxidation without influencing body weight. There was no influence on glucose parameters, and the inflammatory markers of IL-6 and TNFa were unchanged. A trend towards increased adiponectin was noted
