Endothelium-bound extracellular superoxide dismutase (eEC-SOD), a major antioxidative enzyme in the vasculature, is involved in anti-atherogenesis by inhibiting low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation. The objective was to investigate whether the polyphenol-rich juar tea had beneficial effects on LDL oxidation and eEC-SOD levels in patients with metabolic syndrome (MetS). A total of 20 men with MetS participated in a randomized cross-over trial, comparing consumption of five cups/day of juar… CONTINUE READING
