How to improve the immune system using natural milk proteins is the focus of a researchstudy at Griffith University.

A placebo-controlled study will ask adults who want to improve their health to take asupplement containing milk proteins for one month.

“In addition to roles in host defence, recent evidence suggests that these proteins may bebeneficial for metabolism,” says lead researcher Dr Nicholas West from the GriffithHealth Institute. “This study aims to assess the biological pathways which are involvedin driving responses to these supplements.

“This study will help us determine if the supplements can improve immune and metabolicfunction to enhance health.”

The study is seeking Gold Coast residents aged between 18-55 to consume the supplementand undergo a series of health assessments at the Griffith Health Institute.

The study will be ongoing for several months and outcomes known by the end of the year.
