Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Ginsenoside Improve Metabolic Syndrome
Official Title  ICMJE Effects of Ginsenoside Supplementation on Insulin Resistance and Cardiometabolic Risk Factors in Men With Metabolic Syndrome: a Randomized Controlled Trial.
Brief Summary

Aim : Investigated the effects of Korean red ginseng supplementation on metabolic parameters such as cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose.

Randomized Control Trial.

Detailed Description

Methods : A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single-center study in 60 subjects who are not taking drugs that could affect metabolic and vascular function. Subjects will be randomized into a Korean red ginseng (3.0g/d) group or placebo group for a 4-week study.

We will collect anthropometric measurements, blood for laboratory testing, inflammatory marker, hormones and mitochondrial DNA copy number.

Subject : Older than 40 years of age, presented with metabolic syndrome. Subjects were excluded if they were taking drugs that could affect metabolic and vascular function, including BP control drug, anti-diabetic drugs and lipid-lowering drugs.

Measurement : We will collect anthropometric measurements and blood for laboratory testing at the initial(week 0) and final (week 4)visits. Serum levels of blood glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol,triglyceride, and DNA copy number of mitochondria.
