Middle-aged inactive adults wanted for research study
We are interested to find out whether the structure and function of your blood vessels are altered after engaging in a short session of walking.
We would also like to learn whether the consumption of folic acid (a nutrient found naturally in many fruits and vegetables) favourably influences your blood vessels. Findings from this research could identify strategies that help to reduce the risk of developing heart disease as we get older.
We are looking for healthy adults to take part in our study, who meet the following criteria:
• Men aged 50-60 years
• Postmenopausal women aged 50-60 years
• No known cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or other chronic diseases
• No medications
• Engaging in less than 2 hours of structured exercise per week
• 3 visits to the laboratory over a two-month period
Measurements to be taken include:
• Blood samples
• Blood pressure
• Resting ECG
• 10-year cardiovascular disease risk score
• Non-invasive measurements looking at the structure and function of your blood vessels
Please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like more information about taking part.
