Postprandial vasoprotective activities of eggs along the gut-blood vessel axis

Upon completing these studies, we expect to provide evidence of a novel dietary strategy that reduces CVD risk by specifically demonstrating that eggs protect against VED along the gut-blood vessel axis. These findings are therefore expected to also facilitate timely translational messages that overcome the misguided public perception of eggs while also supporting egg consumption as an economical dietary strategy to improve functional and biochemical indices reflective of cardiovascular health.
