More Benefits for Sport from NeoLife Glucose Balance Ingredients: Turmeric and Curcumin
By Dr. Diane E. Clayton, SAB Member
The yellow pigment curcumin from the spice turmeric is widely used in traditional Indian cuisine and is now increasingly popular as a dietary supplement. The popularity of curcumin stems from the numerous reports that it has the ability to reduce the low-level inflammation associated with a host of chronic diseases 1. Curcumin works to dampen inflammatory responses in a variety of ways in the body and this is an area of intense research. The biological effects of curcumin are usually attributed to the presence of polyphenolic compounds, known as “curcuminoids”.
Exciting new results on curcumin have now emerged from the area of sports science and nutrition. This study adds to the knowledge base about exactly how curcumin works to dampen inflammation in the body.Read More
The heart is the hardest working muscle in the body. Without a properly functioning heart, the body is deprived of the oxygen and nutrients it needs for optimal function. That’s why maintaining cardiovascular health is so important – it affects every part of our body! In honor of World Heart Day, we’re sharing 10 unexpected supplements crucial for heart health.
Here’s 10 unexpected supplements crucial for heart health:
Glucosamine is an amino sugar (a combination of an amino acid – glutamine, and a sugar – glucose) normally found in healthy cartilage. It is synthesized by many cells in our body but is concentrated in joint cartilage. Glucosamine functions as the basic building block of cartilage by first being a basic building block of glycosaminoglycans (GAG) which themselves make up very large structures known as proteoglycans. Without adequate glucosamine, proteoglycans synthesis by chondrocytes would shut down, and this in turn would cause the synthesis of cartilage to stop. Glucosamine makes up 50% of one of the most important GAGs, hyaluronic acid, which acts as a “glue” that holds cartilage matrix together. Hyaluronic acid is also a critical component of synovial fluid, which lubricates joints and keeps cartilage smooth and healthy.Read More

It is well known that carotenoids promote the body’s ability to defend against essentially all forms of cancer. You can find compelling evidence in the form of strong references that support that throughout peer-reviewed scientific/medical literature. A new study published by researchers from Montreal University in the journal Frontiers in Oncology reinforces that point by showing that combinations of dietary carotenoids derived from food provide a 25-35% protective factor against lung cancer.Read More

In the May 2017 issue of the journal Nutrition & Diabetes, a small but important study appeared in the “Short Communications” section. That study showed evidence that the amount of daily flavonoid intake was inversely associated with the risk of obesity as well as the inflammatory burden associated with obesity. That means when flavonoid intake is high the risk of obesity is lower and the inflammatory burden that obesity puts on the body is also reduced. Not an entirely new discovery, but an important affirmation of the power of flavonoid rich foods.Read More

It has been known for many years that dietary carotenoids play diverse roles within our bodies as both fundamental nutrients in systems and processes as well as defenders of the cells and tissues that make up those systems. Much of that knowledge can be tied directly back to the many peer-reviewed scientific papers that showcased and substantiated the many benefits of NeoLife Carotenoid Complex.
Two particular carotenoids; lutein and zeaxanthin (both present in Carotenoid Complex) have been shown to protect delicate tissue in the center of the retina of the eye, the macula lutea, from the degenerative effects of the light that streams into our eyes every moment of our waking lives. Such knowledge is also proof that these carotenoids cross over the blood brain barrier to do that important job.Read More
