If you’d like to help with this study, we’ll ask some screening questions over the phone and request that you attend our clinic in Newstead, Brisbane, for a quick finger prick test to assess your current cholesterol levels. In just a couple of minutes you’ll know your cholesterol levels and whether you will be eligible for the study. If your cholesterol results fit the study criteria, you’ll be given some health and lifestyle questionnaires to complete, and have a blood test where we will test for a range of other blood markers such as inflammation and blood glucose.
When your initial assessments are complete, you’ll be provided with the study product capsules to take daily, which may help control your cholesterol levels. As this study is placebo controlled, you will have a 50% chance of receiving the active study product.
During the 6 month study, you’ll be asked to attend our clinic at months, 2, 4 & 6 to complete follow up questionnaires, have a progress interview and blood sample taken.
If you’re over 25, are generally healthy and think you may have elevated cholesterol, we’d love to hear from you. Please register your interest by answering the eligibility questionnaire and completing the form on this page.
