Experimental: Low-Fat Dairy
Participants will ingest 2 cups of low-fat milk on 1 occasion prior to measure postprandial changes in vascular function
Other: Low-Fat Milk
Participants will ingest 2 cups of low-fat milk on 1 occasion.
Active Comparator: Rice Milk
Participants will ingest 2 cups of rice milk on 1 ocassion prior to measuring postprandial vascular function
Other: Rice Milk
Participants will ingest 2 cups of rice milk on 1 occasion.
- endothelial function [ Time Frame: 3 hours ]Brachial artery flow-mediated dilation will be assessed at 30 min intervals during a 3 hour postprandial period
- Biomarkers of oxidative stress and nitric oxide metabolism [ Time Frame: 3 hours ]At 30 min intervals throughout a 3 hour postprandial period, biomarkers of oxidative stress (glutathione, malondialdehyde, nitrotyrosine, and antioxidants) as well as nitric oxide metabolism (arginine, asymmetric dimethylarginine, and nitric oxide metabolites) will be evaluated.
