Assessing the Role of a Fermented Soy Extract in Inflammation and the Human Microbiome in Obese Adults

What is the purpose of this trial?

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects a fermented soy beverage has on the microorganisms in the body.

Patients will drink 8-oz of a milk-coffee flavored fermented soy beverage twice per day for a period of four weeks. In total, the study will require 11 visits to the clinic over 14 weeks. Additionally, patients will provide saliva and stool samples at each visit, and give blood during 8 of the visits. Patients will be provided instructions on how to collect their own samples along with collection kits. Patients will be paid $600 for participating.
