Participants sought for nutrition study on strawberries

Healthy, non-smoking men and women are needed for a research study examining the effects of a freeze dried strawberry powder on LDL cholesterol and other cardiovascular disease risk factors.

We are seeking participants 35 - 65 years of age with a BMI of 25-39kg/m2. Subjects must be healthy and not taking medications for high cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, or inflammatory conditions. Participants will be provided with two different amounts of freeze dried strawberry powder and a placebo powder for 4-6 weeks each, with a 2 week break between test periods (total time for study is 16-22 weeks).  At the completion of the study participants will receive lab results and compensation of $350.
