What is the purpose of this study?
The goal of this research is to determine if consuming one of two study drinks will help enhance the detoxification of multiple environmental toxicants and cancer causing agents. If our research supports this idea, this drink could be an inexpensive dietary component, which could promote good health.
How often are the clinic visits?
We expect that you will be in this research study for approximately 8 weeks. After the virtual screening visit, there are a total of 11 visits that will all be in-person visits. Each visit will last approximately 1 hour.
What will I be doing in the study?
We will provide you with the two different powders dispensed at separate time periods and a flavoring product and ask you to add them to water. We will ask you to drink this mixture at breakfast, lunch and dinner. We will ask you to come to the clinic for 11 visits over 8 weeks. Urine, blood, saliva and oral cells will be collected and we will ask you questions about your health and diet. If you are a tobacco user, we will ask you questions about your tobacco use. Daily food and dosing diaries will be kept.
We will ask you to refrain from eating any cruciferous vegetables (we provide you a list of common cruciferous vegetables since they contain the same compound that we are testing) while you are in the study.
Will I be compensated?
Yes, you will be compensated up to $690 for your time and effort and for completing all study related procedures.
