From: Effects of purified anthocyanin supplementation on platelet chemokines in hypocholesterolemic individuals: a randomized controlled trial

HDL-cholesterol (mmol/L) 1.24 ± 0.21 1.23 ± 0.20 −0.9 (−5.2 to 3.4) 1.22 ± 0.23 1.37 ± 0.22c 14.0 (7.9 to 20.2)d 0.036

Triacylglycerol (mmol/L) 2.41 (1.47 to 2.70) 2.34 (1.35 to 2.62) −3.2 (−7.6 to 1.2) 2.45 (1.53 to 2.74) 2.35 (1.37 to 2.61) −4.8 (−9.8 to 0.2) 0.462
  1. The data are expressed as the mean ± SD
  2. No significant differences in any variable were observed between the two groups at baseline, as determined using unpaired Student’s t-test
  3. a Calculated as (value at week 24 – value at baseline)/value at baseline × 100
  4. b The effects of the intervention on these variables were evaluated by repeated-measures ANOVA
  5. c P < 0.05 vs. baseline, as assessed by paired Student’s t-test
  6. d P < 0.05 vs. percentage changes in the placebo group, as assessed by unpaired Student’s t-test
