Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Vascular function [ Time Frame: 4 weeks, with option of additional 4 week treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    vascular response to stress will be measured using flow mediated dilation and ultrasound.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Body fat percentage [ Time Frame: 4 weeks, with optional additional 4 week treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Body fat percentage will be measured using a DEXA scan.

  • inflammation biomarkers [ Time Frame: 4 weeks, with optional additional 4 week treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Fasting blood draw

  • cognitive function [ Time Frame: 4 weeks, with optional additional 4 week treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    cognitive function will be assessed using a validated computer based assessment tool
