What does the study entail?

In this study, we examine whether the daily use of a dietary supplement containing olive leaf extract has a beneficial effect on body composition, muscular strength, postmenopausal symptoms and if it has a skin-anti-aging effect.

The research is conducted at the FHML faculty of Maastricht University in Maastricht. The study lasts 12 weeks, during which you take 1 capsule of a test product or placebo a day. You will come to Maastricht a total of 4 times. Once for screening and 3 times for testing days, for a total duration of approximately 6 hours.
