The Cardiorespiratory/Metabolic Laboratory is fully equipped for the testing of isolated dietary ingredients, nutraceuticals and finished dietary supplements in a controlled research environment. Our specific focus is on testing antioxidant related dietary supplements in human subjects. However, we have the capability to test a wide variety of nutrients and finished products, in both humans and animals. Outcome measures typically include biomarkers of antioxidant capacity (e.g., total antioxidant capacity such as ORAC and TEAC, specific antioxidant enzyme activity), oxidative stress (e.g., oxidized/reduced glutathione, protein carbonyls, malondialdehyde, 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine, hydrogen peroxide), cardiovascular function (e.g., nitric oxide, homocysteine), inflammation (e.g., C-reactive protein), and endocrine parameters (e.g., growth hormone, testosterone, estradiol). Other biomarkers of interest, as well as measures of physical and cognitive performance, can be included as outcome measures within the research design. If interested in discussing how we can assist in designing a research study to investigate the effects of your particular dietary ingredient, nutraceutical or finished dietary supplement, please contact:
