Description

As we get older, our cardiovascular health worsens. This can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease. In this study we want to find out what causes cardiovascular health to worsen in older men and women. Also we want to find out what happens to the cardiovascular system when we take a dietary antioxidant supplement for a short period of time. Specifically, we want to see if the antioxidant supplement will improve cardiovascular health in older men and women because of damage to mitochondria. Mitochondria are the main power supply of the cells in our body. The results from this study will help to understand whether improvements in mitochondrial function will also improve cardiovascular health in older men and women.
