The purpose of our study is to use a flaxseed-based nutritional supplement in combination with exercise training (walking) for improving cholesterol levels. We hypothesize that exercise training will improve cholesterol profile and that adding supplementation with a flaxseed nutritional supplement will further improve cholesterol profile.
Flax supplementation and exercise training each have small beneficial effects for improving blood lipid profile and reducing cardiovascular disease risk. Flax lignan, a phytoestrogen found in flaxseed is thought to be the active compound responsible for the cholesterol-lowering effect of flaxseed. Our purpose is to combine an exercise training program (walking) with flax lignan supplementation for improving blood lipid profile.
Comparisons: Walking (6 days per week) plus flax lignan (500 mg per day) compared to walking plus placebo.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention

An activity in which the body advances at a slow to moderate pace by moving the feet in a coordinated fashion. This includes recreational walking, walking for fitness, and competitive race-walking.
Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
ANGINA PECTORIS or angina-like chest pain with a normal coronary arteriogram and positive EXERCISE TEST. The cause of the syndrome is unknown. While its recognition is of clinical importance, its prognosis is excellent. (Braunwald, Heart Disease, 4th ed, p1346; Jablonski Dictionary of Syndromes & Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed). It is different from METABOLIC SYNDROME X, a syndrome characterized by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA, that has increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
A cluster of metabolic risk factors for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS. The major components of metabolic syndrome X include excess ABDOMINAL FAT; atherogenic DYSLIPIDEMIA; HYPERTENSION; HYPERGLYCEMIA; INSULIN RESISTANCE; a proinflammatory state; and a prothrombotic (THROMBOSIS) state.
