Edith Cowan University and RPH Medical Research Foundations’ nutrition research group expert Catherine Bondonno has been continuing her research on the short-term effects of BRAVO™ branded apple consumption on vascular health. Clinical trials are now underway to primarily find out if short-term regular intake of an easily achieved intake of fresh BRAVO™ apples improve endothelial function. Secondary outcomes of the trial will assess how regular consumption alters the gastrointestinal microbiome, and if changes are linked with effects on vascular health outcome measures. The trial will be randomised and controlled with up to 30 participants with at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease, updates on results will be reported on this page shortly.
