Cardiovascular Function During Supine Rest in Endurance-Trained Males with New Zealand Blackcurrant: A Dose-Response Study

on November 30, 2016

Synopsis: 

  • Dose-response study investigating cardiovascular responses in cyclists at rest, with 300mg, 600mg, 900mg NZB extract
  • Results showed NZB extract had a moderate to large effect on CV responses
  • Responses varied between doses, highest at 900mg
  • Extract reduced total peripheral resistance by 20.2% (900mg)
  • Increased cardiac output 27.5% (900mg)
  • Increased stroke volume 17.7% (900mg)
  • Effect on blood volume pumped may enhance post-exercise recovery in athletes
  • May be beneficial for clinical populations affected by reduced circulation
