Men can mus­cle in on dairy study

Central Leader - - NEWS -

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.
