Efficacy
Statistical methods / analysis
ANOVA and linear model both used to compare gene expression changes after taking Olive Leaf extract.
To detect a significant change (0.05) with a power of >80% in the JUN gene between the intervention groups, 30 participants are required. This was determined using the SD of a change in JUN in healthy people for a study using a similar nutracuetical.
