Table 2 Inflammation biomarker changes over the course of the experiment1

From: Flaxseed supplementation improved insulin resistance in obese glucose intolerant people: a randomized crossover design

  Baseline After 12 weeks
  Flaxseed Wheat Bran Flaxseed Wheat Bran
IL-6 (pg/mL) 3.2 ± 0.6 3.1 ± 0.5 3.2 ± 0.5 3.6 ± 0.8
TNF-α (pg/mL) 0.9 ± 0.4 0.6 ± 0.5 0.8 ± 0.5 0.7 ± 0.6
hs-CRP (mg/L) 3.6 ± 1.7 4.6 ± 2.1 3.9 ± 0.9 7.2 ± 5.5
  1. 1 All values are mean ± standard deviation; n = 7-9; Statistical significance level was set at 0.05
  2. The inflammation biomarkers, IL-6, TNF-α, and hs-CRP did not change significantly following 12 weeks of flaxseed or wheat bran supplementation. No significant difference in IL-6, TNF-α, and hs-CRP between flaxseed and wheat bran supplementation groups
