Main Study Question
The objective of this study is to determine the influence of cranberry juice on risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Motivation for Research
Previous studies have shown that consumption of a low calorie cranberry beverage imparts a favorable impact on HDL cholesterol, LDL oxidation, and cell adhesion molecules in men. However, these studies were not well controlled. Thus, it is important to confirm these effects in a blinded, placebo-controlled feeding study.
This study is complete and is currently undergoing data analysis.
