Previously, a Swiss researcher's study of plum extract once again proved that Prunus mume extract is beneficial to kidney health.
The pilot study recruited 44 volunteers, all of whom were over 18 years of age, and required up to 20-40 UI / L of transaminases in their body. In addition, the liver function of volunteers (non-viral hepatitis, alcoholic hepatitis, fatty liver and diabetes and other diseases) also need to pass.
The last volunteers were randomized into three groups, one taking one plum extract and one placebo (low dose), one taking two plum extracts (one high dose) and two taking placebo (control group ).
Researchers tested hepatic lipids at weeks 4, 8 and 12 of the trial.
The study found that aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, and gamma glutamyl transpeptidase had lower levels of liver enzymes in the low-dose volunteers compared with the control group. However, high-dose group of volunteers, liver enzymes have not changed significantly.
The researchers found that the pomegranate extract can improve the body's metabolic and antioxidant capacity of the efficacy include lower blood sugar, increase high-density lipoprotein levels, lower LDL.
In addition, researchers said later in the study will also be the main plum extract on the relationship between liver dysfunction.
