Research / Discovery

Volunteers required for participation in nutritional supplement studies

September 22, 2009

Participate in a research study investigating the influence of Protandim, a nutritional supplement, on physiological function.

The Human Performance Clinical/Research Laboratory in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at the Colorado State University is seeking volunteers to participate in studies investigating the influence of Protandim, a nutritional supplement, on physiological function.

Volunteers should be aged 18-85 years, non-smokers, not pregnant, and not regular exercisers (i.e. less than three times per week).

Benefits for study volunteers may include the following:

  • a physician-monitored graded exercise stress test for cardiovascular health assessment
  • measurement of aerobic fitness capacity (VO2max)
  • measurement of body composition (including whole-body bone mineral density and % body fat)
  • measurement of resting metabolic rate
  • measurement of your sensitivity to insulin (related to diabetes)

Financial compensation

Participants will receive financial compensation for their time spent in the laboratory.

Potential risks for study volunteers – you may be asked to take drugs usually given to people with heart disease.

For more information, please contact Dr. Christopher Bell via telephone at (970) 491-3495 or e-mail physiology@cahs.colostate.edu prior to Oct. 31, 2009.

This study has been approved by the CSU Institutional Review Board.
