Evaluation of the effects of oak wood extract on fatigue

Nutraveris

This pilot, controlled study evaluated in 40 stable, mild, heart failure patients the effects of standard management with or without 8 weeks supplementation with oak wood extract (Robuvit®) on fatigue.

Results showed that after 8 weeks, systolic-diastolic pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate were minimally, but non-significantly, lowered with the supplement without differences in controls. Ultrasound-derived ejection fraction was significantly increased in the supplement group (p < 0.05) while there were minimal, non-significant differences in controls. Walking distance on treadmill was also significantly increased in the supplement group (p < 0.05) and significantly less in controls. The microcirculation improved significantly in the oak wood extract group (p < 0.05) in comparison with the non-supplemented controls. Oxidative stress was significantly decreased (p < 0.05) with the supplement while there were minimal, non-significant changes in controls.

In conclusion in this pilot, a supplementation with oak wood extract seems to help and improve patients with mild heart failure.
