Opportunity to Participate in a Research Study!

Participating in this research study will help investigate the impact of nut consumption on vascular health. Subjects that complete the study will earn up to $210. 

The Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Georgia Seeks:  

Men and women (postmenopausal) between ages 50-75 years. Subjects must not take blood pressure or lipid lowering medications, anti-depressants, thyroid medications, or exercise more than 3 hours per week. Subjects must also not have diabetes or food allergies/intolerances to pecans, gluten or dairy. Subjects must not habitually eat tree nuts more than twice per week. 


This study requires a 4-week commitment and 3 testing visits: Consent/Screening Visit, Baseline Visit (visit 1), and Post-Diet Intervention Visit (visit 2). All visits require blood draws.  

What happens on the test visits and the 4-week intervention? 

At the baseline and post-diet visits, we will measure your weight, blood pressure, body fat percentage, appetite, vascular function, cognitive function, and take a baseline blood sample. Next, you will be asked to complete meal-challenge. For this, we will collect small amounts of blood and measure potential changes to your vasculature and cognitive ability and appetite after the meal and throughout the morning. You will finish the visit with a buffet lunch. During the 4-week intervention, you may be required to eat pecans every day that we provide for you.  

What’s in it for you?  

You will also learn your blood pressure, body fat percentage, cholesterol levels, and can earn up to $210.  

Can you stop participating after you start? 

Yes, you may refuse or cease your participation at any time during the study.
