Study Background

We want to know how a daily dose of yogurt sweetened with honey affects digestive health in middle to older aged women. In this 12-week study, we’ll look at markers of inflammation, oxidative stress (a state where the body has too many free radicals and not enough antioxidants), and gut health.

If you have gone through menopause and are overweight for your height (a BMI of 25-30), you may qualify to participate. Help advance gut health research today and join our compensated study!
