Amla Extract Associated With Improvements in Metabolic Syndrome Risk Factors


The five risk factors for metabolic syndrome are high blood
pressure, high blood sugar, excess fat around the waist, high triglycerides,
and low levels of HDL cholesterol. According to a new study, supplementation
with Amla extract may help improve cholesterol and triglyceride levels in
people with metabolic syndrome.





The study participants included 59 people with metabolic syndrome
and an average age of 57. They were assigned to one of three interventions:
Amla supplement of 250mg twice daily, Amla supplement of 500 mg twice daily, or
a placebo twice daily for four weeks. A lipid profile was completed to measure
cholesterol, triglycerides, and C-reactive protein. The researchers also
measured oxidative stress and endothelial function.





The researchers found that supplementation with 500 mg of Amla
extract led to an 11% reduction in total cholesterol, a 21% reduction in LDL
cholesterol, a 19% reduction in triglyceride, and a 7% increase in HDL
cholesterol. In addition, they found that both dosages led to significant
improvements in endothelial function, markers of oxidative stress, and systemic
inflammation biomarkers.





The study was conducted by researchers from Nizam’s Institute of
Medical Sciences, India. It was published online ahead of print on May 6, 2019
in the journal BMC
Complementary and Alternative Medicine
