Metabolic syndrome is characterized by increased oxidative stress and inflammation (Van Guilder, Hoetzer, Greiner, Stauffer, and Desouza, 2006) that may underlie the increased risk for cardiovascular disease (Mottillo et al., 2010). Dietary calcium reduced reactive oxygen species, as well as biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammation in mouse models (Sun and Zemel, 2006; Zemel and Sun, 2008). A reduction in biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammation in overweight and obese humans following Read more [...]
