2014-07-24 14:28:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The goal of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a new one-a-day Cooper complete vitamin supplement with or without a combined omega-3 fatty acid supplement on selected clinical risk factor measures. Participants taking the Cooper Complete one-a-day vitamin plus omega-3 fatty acid will have greater improvement in homocysteine, LDL cholesterol, and C-reactive protein than those taking the other supplements.

Description

Participants will be randomized to 1 of 3 groups: vitamin with omega-3, vitamin w/o omega-3, or omega-3 alone. They will take the vitamin 12 weeks, after which time they will return for all laboratory tests. Persons who are currently taking a supplement must undergo a 2-week washout period before beginning the study. Participants taking the Cooper Complete one-a-day vitamin plus omega-3 fatty acid will have greater improvement in homocysteine, LDL cholesterol, and C-reactive protein than those taking the other supplements.
