Or why are there so many researchers studying the sunshine vitamin?
Written by Dr. Shepherd

It would appear from the list of reports that Vitamin D is being shown to be required for many other functions in the human body than was traditionally known. Why do we need Vitamin D and what are the consequences of its deficiency?

Believe it or not the average human contains 10 times more microbial cells than human cells. In fact our microbiome or our microbial “ecosystem” together with our DNA is what makes each of us unique. The only time we are microbe-free is during the 9 months we spend in the womb. During birth, after birth and during the first few years of life our resident microbes (comprising not just bacteria, but also viruses, fungi and protozoa) establish themselves in and on our body as a balanced and stable community helping us grow and develop into healthy adults. Exactly how our resident microbes become established is determined both by our genetics and the environment we live in. So, when all goes well, we live in harmony with a stable community of microbes which confer upon us numerous health benefits.Read More

Our only responsibility to this intricate, dynamic system is to provide the high-quality nutrients the body needs to do a good job.Read More

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
