The project includes:

  • Product tolerance study: gastrointestinal and metabolic complications related to the product administration.
  • The monitoring of the intervention, and clinical and nutritional evaluation of the participants, including anthropometry, quality of life related to the health and clinical and nutritional status analytical evaluation (hematology and biochemistry).
  • The determination of the major biochemical variables related to the lipid profile and assessment of the antioxidant defense system, and also certain markers of metabolic syndrome and associated cardiovascular risk.
