Dairy attentuates oxidative and inflammatory stress in metabolic syndrome.
adequate-dairy decreased malondialdehyde and oxidized LDL at 7 d (35% and 11%, respectively; P < 0.01), with further decreases by 12 wk. Inflammatory markers were suppressed with intake of adequate-dairy, with decreases in tumor necrosis factor-α at 7 d and further reductions through 12 wk (35%; P < 0.05);
and a corresponding 55% increase in adiponectin at 12 wk (P < 0.01).
adequate-dairy significantly reduced waist circumference and trunk fat (P < 0.01 for both)
