If you have (or think you have) elevated cholesterol, you could help research.

RDC Global is conducting a study to evaluate the effect of orally-dosed Almega PL on cardio-metabolic parameters and inflammatory markers in men and women with hypercholesterolemia.

Background

Hypercolesterolemia is elevated cholesterol in the blood and is a well-known risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Almega PL is a type of omega-3 essential fatty acid derived from microalgae. Omega-3 essential fats cannot be made by the body and must be consumed in the diet or via supplementation. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are known to have a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels and may offer protection against cardiovascular diseases.

Potential participants will be screened for inclusion in the study. You will then be enrolled and asked to attend the study site, fill out questionnaires, have a finger prick test, undertake a body composition assessment and be allocated to the treatment group or placebo.

Following this you will undertake a blood test and be asked to take the allocated product daily for 6 months and to attend the study site every 2 months for an assessment. Each assessment will involve filling out questionnaires, undertaking a progress interview and having a finger prick test. You are also required to undertake a blood test at months 2 and 4.
