K-State researchers from the College of Health and Human Sciences are recruiting participants for a study examining the impact of daily consumption of fruit-flavor probiotic juice — available in the U.S market, worth $150 — and vitamin B3 on gut health, metabolic health and neuroendocrine health.

Participants of the study will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about their health, metabolic and neuroendocrine functions.
  • Earn $30 for participation. 
  • Receive a free gut microbiome analysis, blood lipid levels, liver enzyme levels in the blood, and hormonal analysis  — worth $350. 

The first 30 participants who complete the study will be eligible to enter a drawing to win a prize of:

  • Samsung – Galaxy Tablet 9.6 inches, one award. 
  • HP Deskjet Wireless All-in-one printer — printer, scan, copy, one award. 

Participants must be healthy adults, 18 years or older; willing to consume a small amount of probiotic fruit juice 70ml/day — a small measuring cup will be provided — which is about two shots or one-fifth of a can of soda, and vitamin B3 one tablet daily for six weeks; and available to commit three visits — 20-30 minutes per visit — to the College of Health and Human Sciences or the third floor of the Lafene Health Center building, Kansas State University.
