Do you have high cholesterol and want to lower it with nutrient-dense foods?
Scientists at Nutrient, a nutrient-dense food company in Nevada, are recruiting individuals to participate in a 12-week research study to determine if Nutrient's foods affect your cholesterol levels. Our meals are carefully designed to include one-third of every essential nutrient that you need to be healthy.
We are seeking 60 adults, age 45-69, who have high LDL cholesterol and are overweight. The purpose of the study is to determine the effect on cholesterol and CRP from eating three Nutrient foods daily for three months (Nutrient provides the food at no cost). If eligible, you will participate from your home at no cost to you.
