Men can muscle in on dairy study
Middle-aged men are needed for a muscle ageing study.
The study, being carried out by the University of Auckland and Liggins Institute, will look at the potential effects of dairy products on muscle health.
Researchers are looking for men aged between 45 and 60 who are in good health.
During the study participants will need to have several different types of body scan.
At the end of the study they will have an IV infusion of metabolic tracer and be given one of five different dairy products to consume.
Muscle and blood samples will be taken afterwards to detect changes.
Participants will need to visit the Liggins Institute in Grafton and the Millennium Institute in Mairangi Bay three times.
A small reward will be offered for time and to cover travel costs.
