“Dietary Sodium, Oxidative Stress, and Pulsatile Hemodynamics”
High sodium diets impair vascular function, which may influence the work of the heart. This investigation is designed to determine if this change in vascular function results in a greater workload in the heart and if people who regularly exercise are protected from these effects.
Dietary Supplement - High Sodium
10 days of 3900 mg of sodium/day in excess of normal dietary intake delivered via enteric capsules filled with table salt.
10 days of enteric capsules filled with dextrose.
