Retraction Note: Elevated blood pressure reduction after α-lipoic acid supplementation: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

The Original Article was published on 11 February 2019

Retraction Note: Journal of Human Hypertension

The Authors have retracted this article because there are fundamental errors in the data presented that undermine the conclusions drawn. Standard errors were used instead of standard deviations when using data from one of the studies (Koh et al) included in the meta-analyses. Numerous inconsistencies were noted from the numbers used in the meta-analyses when compared to the original studies.

All authors agree to this retraction.
