概要 We aimed to clarify the influence of intake of 4G-α-glucopyranosyl hesperidin (G-Hsp) beverage on the lower leg swelling caused by six hours of sitting in six healthy women. Increase in ankle % circumference was significantly less after the G-Hsp ingestion than after placebo. A significant difference was found between % circumference after the G-Hsp and the placebo, i.e., the calf swelling after placebo was significantly larger. A gradual increase in skin temperature at the lower limb was observed after G-Hsp ingestion while there was no change after placebo. Gravity induced calf and ankle swelling resulted by prolonged sitting can be ameliorated by oral ingestion of hesperidin-derived G-Hsp through production of nitric oxide. It might be helpful in preventing economy-class syndrome caused by enforced sitting for a long duration.
