Brief Summary:
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of daily supplementation of Angelica Gigas Nakai and Allium Cepa L.Extract Mixtures on the Improvement of Blood Flow.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Blood Flow Dietary Supplement: Angelica Gigas Nakai and Allium Cepa L.Extract Mixtures Dietary Supplement: Placebo Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This study was a 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human trial. 80 subjects were randomly divided into Angelica Gigas Nakai and Allium Cepa L.Extract Mixtures group and a placebo group. It is to evaluate the changes in the displayed evaluation items when taking Angelica Gigas Nakai and Allium Cepa L.Extract Mixtures once a day, in comparison with taking a placebo.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Improvement of Blood Flow group
One packet once a day, after breakfast (1.5 g/day, 1.5 g/day as an Angelica Gigas Nakai and Allium Cepa L.Extract Mixtures)
Dietary Supplement: Angelica Gigas Nakai and Allium Cepa L.Extract Mixtures
One packet once a day, after breakfast, for 12 week

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes of Platelet function assay(PFA) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 week ]
    The concentration of Platelet function assay(PFA) was assessed before and after the intervention

  2. Changes of blood viscosity [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 week ]
    The concentration of blood viscosity was assessed before and after the intervention


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes of systolic blood pressure(SBP), diastolic blood pressure(DBP), Pulse [ Time Frame: screening, 0 week, 6 week, 12 week ]
    systolic blood pressure(SBP), diastolic blood pressure(DBP), Pulse were measured in study screening, visit 1(0 week), visit 2(6 weeks) and visit 3(12 weeks).

  2. Changes of blood coagulation-related indices [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 week ]
    Blood coagulation-related indices(e.g. Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, Serotonin, Thromboxane B2, activated partial thromboplastin time) were measured in study visit 1(0 week) and visit 3(12 weeks).

  3. Changes of indicator of lipid metabolism [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 week ]
    Lipid metabolism(e.g. Total cholesterol, Triglyceride, Low Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol, High Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol, Non High Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol) was measured in study visit 1(0 week) and visit 3(12 weeks).

  4. Changes of atherosclerosis index [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 week ]
    Atherosclerosis index(e.g. Total cholesterol/High Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol, Low Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol/High Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol, Triglyceride/High Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol, (Total cholesterol-High Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol)/High Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol) was measured in study visit 1(0 week) and visit 3(12 weeks).
