Protandim and the Metabolic Syndrome
Protandim and the Metabolic Syndrome: A Preliminary Study to Define Protein Signatures That Change Along With Lowered Oxidative Stress Measured as F2 Isoprostanes or TBARS and Inflammation Measured as hsCRP

Protandim will decrease markers of oxidative stress/inflammation in subjects with metabolic syndrome and proteomics will identify protein profiles that correlate with markers or/changes in oxidative stress.

Evaluate the effects of Protandim on protein profile changes and markers of inflammation and oxidation in subjects (40-60 years of age) with the Metabolic Syndrome.
