Purified anthocyanin supplementation improves endothelial function via NO-CGMP activation in hypercholesterolemic individuals

Synopsis:

  • Anthocyanin supplemented adults observed significant increases of flow-mediated dilation by  11% after short-term consumption
  • Participants who received long-term anthocyanin intervention, compared to the control group, observed increases in flow-mediated dilation of 28.4% (vs 2.2% in placebo group)
  • Participants observed increases in HDL-cholesterol concentrations and decreases in LDL cholesterol concentrations
  • Anthocyanin supplementation improved endothelium-dependent vasodilation in hypercholesterolemic individuals
