Participants needed to evaluate acute ingestion of electrolyte tablets on hydration in physically active subjects

We are presently recruiting non-tobacco using men and women between the ages of 18 and 45 years to participate in a research study at the University of Memphis. The study will evaluate the hydration benefits of an electrolyte tablet known as Nuun. You would need to visit the lab for a screening visit lasting approximately one hour and then again on three different days and spend approximately 4.5 hours in the lab each day. You will drink a beverage and collect urine samples over the four hour period. You will be compensated $150 for your complete participation.

Gamers needed to evaluate energy supplements on gaming performance

We are presently recruiting non-smoking men and women gamers between the ages of 18 and 40 years to participate in a research study at the University of Memphis. The study will evaluate how different dietary supplements can improve gaming performance and associated variables. Subjects will come to the lab a total of three times and play the game Fortnite for a total of four hours per lab visit. The total lab time will be approximately 6 hours per visit, including all assessments. Three blood samples will be taken from you at each visit. You will take two different dietary supplements or a placebo (fake supplement), one on each visit. You will be compensated $300 for your complete participation.
