Juice Plus+ Awards U of M Grant for Nutritional Supplement Study

U of M researchers are recruiting non-smoking female healthcare professionals between the ages of 25 and 50 who are in stressful positions and have a high body mass index, no endocrine or metabolic dysfunction, and are not pregnant or lactating.

January 6, 2015 - Dr. Marie van der Merwe, assistant professor of Health and Sport Sciences at the University of Memphis, has received a grant of nearly $400,000 from the Juice Plus+ Company to direct a clinical trial evaluating the health benefits of a dried fruit and vegetable supplement.

Individuals with psychological stress and obesity often suffer an increase in low-grade systemic inflammation, which can lead to chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes. A diet high in fruits and vegetables can reduce this inflammation and its consequences. Juice Plus+, a supplement of dried fruit and vegetable juice, also decreases systemic inflammatory molecules. The two-year study will determine the beneficial effects of Juice Plus+ when provided to stressed, overweight individuals.

U of M researchers are recruiting non-smoking female healthcare professionals between the ages of 25 and 50 who are in stressful positions and have a high body mass index, no endocrine or metabolic dysfunction, and are not pregnant or lactating.

Improvements in participantsí health will be evaluated after they consume Juice Plus+ daily for four to five months.

For more information about participating in the study, contact Simone Godwin at smgodwin@memphis.edu.
