Objective: The aim of this study is to determinate the efficacy of oral administration of curcumin in the remission of metabolic syndrome.
Design: clinical trial, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled.
Study population: Men and women from 20 to 55 years old with metabolic syndrome according to the ATP III criteria, will be included.
Study groups: intervention and control group.
Sample size: It was calculated using a statistical power of 80%, an alpha value of 0.05. A 50% of the difference in the mean of remission of metabolic syndrome between control group and intervention groups was considered. The estimated sample size was 220 subjects for each group.
Process: All eligible participants according to inclusion and exclusion criteria, will be randomized to one of the study groups.
The intervention group will receive a total dose of curcumin 1.2 g / black pepper 10 mg a day; and control group will receive a total dose of hydrolyzed collagen 1.2 g / black pepper 10 mg a day; plus dietary and exercise recommendations for both groups during three months.
The blood concentrations of glucose, triglycerides, and HDL cholesterol will be measured, as well as the abdominal perimeter and blood pressure, at baseline conditions, at one month and three months after treatment.
Statistical analysis: Numerical values will be expressed as mean ± standard deviation; categorical variables will be expressed as proportions. Differences between the groups were estimated by unpaired Student t test for numerical variables (Mann-Whitney U test for skewed data) or Chi-square and Fisher´s exact test for categorical variables. Intragroup differences were estimated by paired Student t-test.
