Apr 6, 2012 Nutritional Supplement Study Concludes at Utah State University
A clinical research study on the effects of nutritional supplementation to combat health consequences associated with Cache Valley’s poor air quality has concluded at Utah State University. The Cache Valley AIR Study, a partnership between the Center for Human Nutrition Studies at Utah State University and USANA Health Sciences, a Utah-based global nutritional supplement company, began in November 2011 with 66 participants.

Winters in the Cache Valley get ugly when inverted temperature gradients trap particulate pollution near the ground, where it can irritate lung tissue and cause health problems. Now a Utah supplement maker is exploiting the state’s notorious inversions to test whether its products reduce inflammation and protect pulmonary function.

LOGAN — Those who live along the Wasatch Front know how bad the air quality can get. It seems the tell- tale lung irritation and scratchy throats have become an unpleasant winter tradition in recent years.

Do You Qualify?

The Kids JUICE (Juice Intake and Carotenoid Effect) Study is a study to determine how food intake affects skin carotenoid levels measured on the surface of a child’s skin.  Carotenoids are pigments found in fruits and vegetables and are believed to be responsible for some positive health benefits such as reduced heart disease and some cancers.  The results of this study could help us measure change in children's fruit and vegetable intake in a simple, non-invasive way.

We are recruiting children ages 5-17 to participate in this study.  If you are selected to participate, you (one parent) and your child will come to our clinic (1600 N. 650 E., N. Logan) at a scheduled appointment time before or after school on weekdays every week for eight weeks to get juice.  Your child will be asked to drink 1/2 to 2 ounces of juice supplement twice a day.

During four of the visits, the following will occur:

·         Measurement of height and weight (1st visit only)

·         Skin scans of carotenoid level.  

·         Complete food recalls and food frequency questionnaires (on three separate occasions).

If your child completes the study, they will receive:

·         $10 for each of the four clinic visit and $20 for completing the study ($60 total)

·         Results of skin carotenoid status

·         Diet analysis
