Strawberry Consumption in Overweight and Obese Individuals

2019-09-24 05:27:36 | BioPortfolio


Our proposal represents an integrated approach to determining the cardiovascular and metabolic effects of strawberry consumption in adults who have high risk for cardiometabolic disease.


The current proposal aims to fill some of these important research gaps with regard the dose and time-course of strawberry consumption in a population where dietary intervention may of particular benefit for both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular and metabolic disease. Participants will participate in a double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized crossover trial. Following a 10-day run-in where no berries are consumed, participants will be randomized via Latin-square design, to three different daily strawberry powder conditions for 4-weeks at a time, with a 7 day washout between conditions.
