How to improve the immune system using natural milk proteins is the focus of a researchÂ study at Griffith University.
A placebo-controlled study will ask adults who want to improve their health to take aÂ supplement containing milk proteins for one month.
â€œIn addition to roles in host defence, recent evidence suggests that these proteins may beÂ beneficial for metabolism,â€ says lead researcher Dr Nicholas West from the GriffithÂ Health Institute. â€œThis study aims to assess the biological pathways which are involvedÂ in driving responses to these supplements.
â€œThis study will help us determine if the supplements can improve immune and metabolicÂ function to enhance health.â€
The study is seeking Gold Coast residents aged between 18-55 to consume the supplementÂ and 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.
