Effects of Dietary Supplement Tauroursodeoxycholic Acid on Vascular Function


Brief description of study

The purpose of the present study is to determine if use of dietary supplement tauroursodeoxycholic acid enhances insulin-stimulated leg blood flow and glucose disposal.

Detailed Study Description

The notion that cellular stress lowers insulin-induced vasodilation is largely founded on ex vivo studies and experiments in rodents. However, it remains unknown if maintenance of cellular function with the use of dietary supplement tauroursodeoxycholic acid enhances vascular function in humans. The investigators test the hypothesis that daily administration of this dietary supplement enhances vascular function, particularly, insulin-stimulated leg blood flow and glucose disposal.
