Energy drinks are beverages that contain stimulant compounds, primarily caffeine, which are marketed as providing mental and physical stimulation. They typically contain sugar (often in excessive amounts) and other sweeteners, herbal extracts, and a variety of amino acid and micronutrient combinations. They come in a staggering number of flavors, sizes, colors, and ingredient combinations, and are most often consumed by people who are looking for a quick and easy way to boost their energy levels. For example, students, athletes, and people who work long hours make up the most common consumers of energy drinks.Read More

Support brain health with the right foods and supplements
Quick thinking and keen memory are both key attributes for job success as well as a streamlined life. Researchers now know that keeping your brain in tip-top shape takes eating the right foods. Your brain functions its best in your 20s and then begins a gradual decline in memory and cognitive skills such as problem solving with measurable losses by your 40s and 50s. There is greater decline of cognitive function in your 70s and 80s. And just as with heart health, decline of brain health and function can be accelerated by poor diet.Read More

NeoLife: Decades of Excellence
When I was asked to write this blog, I was excited to embark on the project. After all, I had a front row seat from which to observe it for 55 years. How much fun that will be, I thought.
Being an analytical type, I started by first thinking about what the word “excellent” represents. Dictionary definitions are always pretty good references. I chose Webster’s New World College Dictionary: “Excellent, adjective; Outstandingly good of its kind; of exceptional merit, virtue, etc.” No surprise there.Read More

3 Common Nutrient Shortfalls to Look Out For
Proper nutrition is the cornerstone on which good health is built. Nutrients in the diet provide fuel for your body, allowing it to properly function and maintain itself. There are different types of essential nutrients that can be grouped into two main categories: macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and lipids) which are needed in larger quantities, and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that are required in smaller amounts.Read More
Fueling a Lifetime of Health: Early Nutrition for Children’s Long-Term Wellbeing
As parents we always want to give children the best chances for a long and healthy life. One way we can do this is to focus on their nutrition from the very beginning. Children go through a phenomenal growth and development phase during their growing years. Their body weight doubles many times over from the time that they are born. Nutrients provide their bodies’ building blocks, the energy with which to fuel growth and the essential vitamins and minerals that make the reactions necessary for growth to happen. Childhood is also a time where the immune system is fine tuning and is called upon to respond to some of its greatest challenges. It is also a time when cognitive skills and personalities are developing. Finally, we are learning more and more about the profound impact that early nutrition has on health later in life. We know now that health decisions parents make today can determine not only whether children are meeting nutrient needs to support healthy growth and development, but also if they will live to 60, 80 or beyond.Read More
A wise frog once lamented that it is not easy being green. Taken in the context of home care products, he could be right if being green is not part of a company’s philosophy – the way the company conducts itself with careful consideration for the environment and for the people using the product.
That is exactly how NeoLife is with its Golden Home Care line of cleaning products. It is part of our company’s culture and philosophy to be mindful of the potential impact on the environment that cleaning products can have both inside and outside the home. You could say that NeoLife was green long before the term became a buzzword. In fact, NeoLife cared about the environment before it became cool, so for us it really is not too hard to be green.
We can leverage control over our diet and lifestyle choices, but let’s not forget there are other factors out there that we can’t always control. Like it or not, we often come into contact with environmental toxins like pesticides in our food, metals in our water, and pollutants in our air. Let’s take air pollution. Research shows that breathing in toxins is associated with a range of respiratory and cardiovascular health effects, likely through the mechanism of creating free radicals and increasing oxidative stress, harming our cells and promoting aging.1,2Read More
There’s been a lot of talk about the gut microbiome in recent years. If you aren’t yet aware of its critical function and importance, here’s what you need to know.
Our diets feed more than just our body’s cells. We’re also feeding a variety of microorganisms that reside inside our digestive tracts, collectively known as the gut microbiome. Research shows strong associations between specific nutrients from our diets and the appearance of certain microbes in our gut.2 This is key to understanding how our diet impacts our health.Read More

“What you see is what you get.” Right? Well, not exactly when it comes to eating a healthful plate of food like veggies and lean protein or swallowing down some key dietary supplements. What you “see” isn’t what your body necessarily gets!! Fifty plus different nutrients and hundreds of protective compounds enter our body through the foods we eat. But there’s a catch. What and how much enters our body’s circulation and then cells depend upon the efficiency of our body’s digestive tract. Also, a host of other factors including our gut microbiome’s health and composition (types and variety of resident bacteria), and the presence or absence of “assistors” impact the digestion and assimilation process.
Super charge your diet by simply boosting digestive efficiency along with optimizing the body’s ability to assimilate nutrients from foods and dietary supplements you eat.Read More

The 7 biggest challenges to your heart health and what you can, or can’t, do about them.
When I heard that my requested topic for this first NeoLife Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) blog of 2023 was “Heart Health” I was excited. But then I realized the scope of the challenge… say something meaningful in a brief blog. Tough, especially considering the SAB and NeoLife have published important, leading edge, science-backed articles on heart health for decades, often well before mainstream science and medicine got on board.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there are seven primary causes of heart disease.1 Three we can do little about; age, gender, and family history (genetics). Three are purely lifestyle that we could do something about: smoking, lack of physical activity, stress.
But the big one, the 7th, that is consistent across all of that is UNHEALTHY DIET. It is even implicated in other “causes” of heart disease, like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, obesity and type-2 diabetes: all diet driven risk factors.1Read More
