Research study

Friday, 9th March, 2018


We're currently looking for moderate to well-trained cyclists aged 18-50y to take part in a study investigating the effect of a fruit extract supplement on cycling performance.  The testing will take place anytime from April, depending on what suits best.

Briefly, the study involves attending the lab on 3 occasions at pre-arranged times. After a familiarisation (visit 1), you will be asked perform a series of exercise tests (visit 2) on a cycle ergometer followed by a 4-week supplementation phase (either a placebo or fruit extract supplement). After the 4-week supplementation phase, you will be asked to repeat the original series of cycling exercise tests (visit 3). I have attached a participant information sheet with an overview of what the study entails. 

By way of compensation for your time and inconvenience, you will receive £300 for taking part in this study.

PLEASE NOTE: You may not be eligible to participate in this study if you have recently, or are currently, participating in other research – please inform the researcher if this applies to you.

If you are interested in taking part and for further information, please contact Alan (  Please forward this mail to others who might be interested in participating within or outside of the university.

This study has been received approval from the Research Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Northumbria University.
