TLDR
Consumption of PJ for 2 weeks has effective hypotensive effects, and may improve endothelial function by decreasing serum concentrations of VCAM‐1, and PJ as a beneficial cardioprotective supplement for hypertensive subjects is suggested. Expand
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of curcuminoid-piperine combination in subjects with metabolic syndrome: A randomized controlled trial and an updated meta-analysis.
TLDR
Short-term supplementation with curcuminoid-piperine combination significantly improves oxidative and inflammatory status in patients with MetS and could be regarded as natural, safe and effective CRP-lowering agents. Expand
