Estudio: nutrientes de la aceituna y granada ayudan a combatir la dislipidemia
According to recently published data from a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, supplementation with Euromed’s ingredient Pomalive®, a precise combination of standardized olive and pomegranate fruits extracts, could help to improve dyslipidemia, a condition resulting from an unbalanced distribution of different lipids (triglycerides, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and LDL cholesterol), and a main risk factor in the development of cardiovascular diseases.
Researchers from the Nutrition Department, University Hospital La Paz (Madrid, Spain) found that oral intake of patent pending combined olives and pomegranate extracts (Pomalive®) for 8 weeks (n = 84) significantly reduced plasma triglycerides (p < 0.05), decreased LDL-C (p < 0.01) and increased HDL-C (p < 0.05) in middle-aged participants with dyslipidemia, without co-adjuvant treatment, and no adverse effects were observed. Currently, statins are the most effective class of drugs for improving lipid profiles but up to 10 % of patients experience side-effects that reduce compliance, thus limiting the risk reduction potential. Therefore, safe and effective alternatives are of great clinical interest.
