Abstract :

Introduction: Gum arabic acacia is a complex, loose aggregate of sugars and hemicelluloses composed of Arabic acid nucleus, it is found in nature and exists as a natural or slightly acidic calcium, magnesium, potassium or sodium salt of complex polysaccharide and the different metal ions present in gum arabic molecules, Chemically, it is an arabinogalactan protein complex composed by weight of 17-34% arabinose, 32-50% galactose, 11-16% rhamnose, 13-19% glucuronic acid and 1.8-2.5% protein. Serum electrolytes play specific roles in optimization of the blood pressure and hence the kidney functions. Methodology: It is a randomized control trial study, it was performed using (14) volunteers with different blood pressure readings and different kidneys function with six months past history. Dose of 10,15,20 and 25 grams of gum dissolved in 250 ml drinking water to be taken at the morning, were used for a duration of 16-18 weeks with interval every four weeks for every dose. Blood samples were taken for electrolytes analysis first as a control and after every interval before starting the next dose and the blood pressure was read after every interval. Results: The electrolytes levels showed biological rearrangement optimized referenced readings and hence the blood pressure both systolic and diastolic at a dose ranges 20-25 gm. Conclusion: There is a significant correlation between Gum acacia and electrolytes control in blood serum and hence the blood pressure, this depends upon the different Gum components ratios.
