Can a blackcurrant extract improve your health while at work?
Researchers in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences are looking for people to take part in a study investigating the potential of New Zealand blackcurrant extract to improve your control of blood sugar while at work.
We will give you the New Zealand blackcurrant extract to ingest followed by a drink, and then take blood samples for the next three hours. You can do this while completing your normal work tasks at a computer.
To be eligible for the study you must be:
- Aged 25-55 years
- Body mass index >25 kg/m2
- Not currently exercising regularly
- No known metabolic or cardiovascular disease
Meeting any of the following criteria will prevent you from participating in the study: pregnancy, breast feeding, individuals with a blackcurrant allergy, metabolic or cardiovascular disease.
