ASEA partnered with the North Carolina Research Campus Human Performance Laboratory to evaluate the effectiveness ASEA Redox Supplement in helping overweight/obese adult women improve disease risk factors such as arterial stiffness, cholesterol status, and oxidative stress
A total of 106 overweight women (ages 20 to 73 years) ingested four fluid ounces of ASEA Redox Supplement or placebo (randomized groups) each day for 12 weeks under double-blind conditions
Oxidative stress emerged as the disease risk factor most influenced by ASEA Redox Supplement ingestion during the 12-week study. Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is the oxidized form of “bad cholesterol” and a major contributor to atherosclerosis or plaque that narrows blood vessels feeding the heart muscle. Oxidized LDL decreased 6.3% in the ASEA Redox Supplement group compared to a 0.9% increase in the placebo, a highly significant difference. Serum cholesterol also decreased 6.3% in the ASEA Redox Supplement group after 12 weeks compared to a 2.1% reduction in the placebo group.
ASEA Redox Supplement versus a placebo ingestion by healthy but overweight/obese females with multiple risk factors for heart disease had significant effects in lowering total cholesterol and oxidized LDL (a major contributor to atherosclerosis formation). Post-study levels of a biomarker for cellular oxidative stress and other disease factors were lower in the ASEA Redox Supplement compared to placebo group, supporting the significant influence of daily ASEA Redox Supplement ingestion over a 12-week period in decreasing oxidative stress.
