Analyses of the blood chemistry count measures indicated significant main effects of group for RBC and significant main effects of time for values of MCV and MCHC (p values < 0.05). There were no statistically significant interaction effects (group × time) for any blood chemistry count measures indicating no specific effects of supplementation on these variables (p values > 0.05).
Results of the analyses of comprehensive metabolic panel measurements revealed significant effects of group for creatinine, eGFR, and BUN/creatinine (p values < 0.05). There were numerous significant main effects of time including BUN, BUN/creatinine, sodium, chloride, CO2, calcium, albumin, and alka phosphate (p values < 0.05). Analyses also showed no statistically significant interaction effects (group × time) for any comprehensive metabolic panel measures which indicated that Bio-Gro™ had not specific effects on the measures of the metabolic panels (p values > 0.05).
The analyses of resting hemodynamic measurements revealed significant time effects for HR (p < 0.05) with no significant effects of group or significant group × time interactions for HR, SBP, or DBP (p values < 0.05) again indicating that the supplementation had no specific effects on these variables.
