Scientific Information on Vascular Function


Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect vascular function
Grade Level of Evidence
Robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials
Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled
Single double-blind study or multiple cohort studies
Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence
? The amount of high quality evidence. The mo re evidence, the more we can trust the results.
Outcome Magnitude of effect
? The direction and size of the supplement's impact on each outcome. Some supplements can have an increasing effect, others have a decreasing effect, and others have no effect.
Consistency of research results
? Scientific research does not always agree. HIGH or VERY HIGH means that most of the scientific research agrees.
Notes
grade-c Curcumin Minor - See study
An increase in vascular function has been noted with curcumin supplementation
grade-c Green Coffee Extract Minor - See study
An increase in vascular responsiveness has been noted with green coffee extract, thought to be due to the metabolite ferulic acid
grade-d Vitamin C Minor - See study
Seemed to attenuate the impairment due to acute hyperglycemia, but more research is needed.

All comparative evidence is now gathered in our ​A-to-Z Supplement Reference.

The evidence for each separate supplement is still freely available ​here.
