Hypertensive research participants needed

Submitted by Jacob Caldwell

The Clinical Integrative Physiology Research Laboratory is recruiting hypertensive male and female volunteers ages 18-45 years to participate in a research project at Lafene Health Center.

Anyone previously diagnosed with hypertension is eligible for participation. You will be asked to perform moderate-intensity handgrip exercise, following ingestion of beetroot juice or a placebo juice. By volunteering, you will help us determine how dietary nitrates from the beetroot juice impact your ability to control blood flow during exercise.

For more information, contact Jacob Caldwell at jcaldwe5@k-state.edu, or Carl Ade at cade@k-state.edu.

This study has been reviewed by the Institutional Review Board and received approval No. 8501.
