Pre-diabetes affects about 16.4% of Australian adults. People with prediabetes are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
The research study is testing whether a natural supplement containing French Maritime Pine Bark Extract, Papain and Aloe Vera (Arborvitae Health and Wellbeing Supplement – AHWS) will help to improve blood sugar levels in people with prediabetes.
This study seeks men and women who have prediabetes or suspect they have prediabetes. Participants are required to attend 5 study visits at the research site (Alexandria, NSW) over 12 weeks as well as undergo 4 blood tests and will be reimbursed $250 for travel expenses at study completion. In addition, the study sponsor Arbovitae Health and Wellbeing will send to all participants who have completed the study 4 x 1L bottles of the supplement, valued at $239.50. The study is a placebo controlled double blind randomized trial, which means that if found eligible to participate, you could be administered either the supplement or a placebo.
