Volunteers Needed for Phytonutrients Research

Investigators at IIT are studying the effects of fruit polyphenolics (phytonutrients) on risk factors for chronic disease and are in need of research participants. In order to be considered for the study, participants must meet certain criteria including being relatively healthy, slightly overweight, and not taking cholesterol medication, a non-smoker and non-diabetic, and between 40-60 years of age. If you meet these criteria, you may be eligible to participate in the study.

All research participants will have blood samples collected at each visit, receive breakfast, dinner and beverage as part of the study, and blood pressure, blood cholesterol and sugar levels will be checked at no cost. In addition, research participants will be compensated.
