Abstract

 Introduction and Aims: According to high prevalence of CARDIOVASCULAR diseases, the present study, evaluates the effect of 8 weeks GARLIC-lemon SUPPLEMENTATION on body composition and CARDIOVASCULAR risk factors in OVERWEIGHT men.Materials and Methods: 20 healthy OVERWEIGHT untrained men (average age=22.37±2.67 years, 86.52±9.88kg and BMI=27.73±2.30kg/m2) were divided in 2 homogeneous group: control group (n=10) and SUPPLEMENTATION group (garlic-lemon) (n=10). The first group did not consume any supplement, but the second group consumed LEMON-garlic supplement during 8 weeks. Blood sample was collected for measuring HDL, LDL, triglycerides and total cholesterol and general measurements include height, weight, fat percentage, waist to hip ratio and BMI, before and 48 hours after the last training session.Results: Significant decrease in weight (P=0.0001) and fat percentage (P=0.0001) was observed. But there is no significant difference between the muscle mass (P=0.095), as well as waist to hips ratio (P=0.310). After 8 weeks SUPPLEMENTATION, HDL increased and total cholesterol levels (P=0.0001) and triglycerides (P=0.0001) decreased, but there was no difference in LDL compared to control group (P=0.544).Conclusion: The present study suggests LEMON-garlic SUPPLEMENTATION for weight loss and improvement in lipid profile in OVERWEIGHT men.
