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
It is well known that the NeoLife Scientific Advisory Board delivers leading edge science and product formulations long before mainstream science or other product manufacturers. It’s a fact! Once again that fact is showcased in leading edge research. This time it comes from the 11 May 2017 edition of the peer-reviewed journal Nutritional Neuroscience. That article points to the importance of three specific omega-3 fatty acids to brain health and function; ALA – alpha-linolenic acid, SDA – stearidonic acid and ETE – eicosatrienoic acid (also known as ETA(3)).Read More
