Figure 2 shows the physiological increases in CVRI from rest and during aerobic exercise after the control orange juice and beetroot juice treatments, reflecting normal regulation.
The control, beetroot juice treatment-related correlations between MCAV and cardiac output (r = +0.45, +0.46), between MCAV and TVR (r = +0.52, +0.43), and between MCAV and CVRI (r = -0.89, -0.89) were found to be significant at P < 0.01 to P < 0.001.
The main finding of this study is that, compared to a placebo orange juice control treatment, a single beetroot juice treatment decreased CVRI at rest and at three submaximal exercise workloads.
Although significant beetroot juice treatment-related changes (increases) in MCAV were restricted to 40% and 80% of the predetermined V[O.sub.2peak] workloads, beetroot juice treatment-related decrements in computed CVRI were detected at rest and at the 40%, 60%, and 80% V[O.sub.2peak] workloads.
At the 40% workload, CVRI and TVR were also found to be significantly lower after the beetroot juice treatment, but with greater MCAV than those after the control orange juice treatment.
At the 80% workload, MCAV was also found to be higher and CVRI lower after the beetroot juice treatment, but without a treatment-related difference in TVR.
All the treatment-related decrements in CVRI occurred in the absence of treatment-related changes in the TCD-measured pulsatility and resistance indexes.
Compared to nondemented age-matched controls, Alzheimer's disease patients exhibit higher CVRI associated with lower MCAV and higher MABP, and TVR [39].
