- Change in biomarkers of inflammation compared with placebo [ Time Frame: Baseline and 8 weeks ]Primary outcome measures will include selected biomarkers of inflammation in blood, i.e., pro-inflammatory cytokines, chemokines, as well as other inflammatory markers (i.e., high sensitivity C-reactive protein).
- Change in biomarkers of glucoregulation, plasma lipids, and blood pressure compared with placebo [ Time Frame: Baseline and 8 weeks ]Secondary outcomes will include plasma markers of glucoregulation (fasting glucose, insulin, HOMA), plasma lipids (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides), and blood pressure (BP).
