  • Helichrysum italicum (Roth) G. Don and Helichrysum arenarium (L.) Moench infusions in reversing the traits of metabolic syndrome : a double-blind randomized comparative trial
    Kenig, Saša ...
    Health impairments characteristic for metabolic syndrome such as increased body mass, a dysregulated lipid or glucose profile and elevated blood pressure can be reversed by appropriate lifestyle ... modifications. Supplementing the normal diet with herbal infusions is a promising strategy. We conducted a randomised double-blind comparative study in which participants with at least two traits of metabolic syndrome consumed an infusion of either Helichrysum italicum subsp. italicum (HI, n = 14) or Helichrysum arenarium (HA, n = 13) daily for 28 days. Anthropometric and biochemical parameters were measured at baseline, at the end of the intervention and after a 2-week washout period. HI infusion consumption had a beneficial effect on anthropometric traits; significant reductions in body weight, body mass index, and visceral and total body fat were observed. In the HA group, there was a greater reduction in serum glucose levels and an improvement in the lipid profile. In both groups, high LDL levels were measured at baseline, but two weeks after the intervention, in 84% of participants in the HA group and 71% in the HI group, the levels were within the reference range. Both interventions caused a decrease in HDL but also improved serum antioxidant properties. Consuming either infusion could thus be recommended as a simple, profitable habit for individuals with traits of metabolic syndrome.
