BACKGROUND This study evaluated a specialized whey fraction (Prolibratrade mark, high in leucine, bioactive peptides and milk calcium) for use as a dietary supplement to enhance weight loss. METHODS This was a randomized, double-blind, parallel-arm, 12-week study. Caloric intake was reduced 500 calories per day. Subjects consumed Prolibra or an isocaloric(More)
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated whether a commercial weight-loss product (Lean System 7) would result in less reduction in resting metabolic rate (RMR) in overweight subjects on a calorie-restricted diet and exercise regimen than in subjects using diet and exercise alone. METHODS In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, healthy(More)
BACKGROUND This small, pilot study evaluated the impact of treatment with a natural multi-mineral supplement from seaweed (Aquamin) on walking distance, pain and joint mobility in subjects with moderate to severe osteoarthritis of the knee. METHODS Subjects (n = 70) with moderate to severe osteoarthritis of the knee were randomized to four double-blinded(More)
BACKGROUND Osteoarthritis (OA) is a slowly destructive process that may be influenced by a nutritional mineral balance in the body. METHODS This small, double blind, placebo controlled pilot study investigated the impact of treatment with a natural multi-mineral supplement from seaweed (Aquamin) on 6 minute walking distance (6 MWD), range of motion (ROM),(More)
This study tested the hypothesis that 3-acetyl-7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone alone (7-Keto) and in combination with calcium citrate, green tea extract, ascorbic acid, chromium nicotinate and cholecalciferol (HUM5007) will increase the resting metabolic rate (RMR) of overweight subjects maintained on a calorie-restricted diet. In this randomized,(More)
A double-blind crossover pilot trial tested the hypothesis that botanically derived calcium could demonstrate greater influence over calcium metabolism markers compared with a nonplant-derived calcium carbonate supplement or placebo. Twelve fasting female subjects received a single oral dose of Aquamin F™ (derived from the marine algal Lithothamnion sp.),(More)
The risk of military personnel, first responders and civilians being exposed to lethal doses of ionising radiation is greater now than it was during the Cold War. Due to the increasing likelihood of exposure to ionising radiation, the need for medical radiation countermeasures has been recognised as a high priority in the US. At present, no approved drugs(More)
