Why does Fruit and Vegetable Intake Matter?
There is overwhelming evidence that higher fruit and vegetable (F&V) consumption is associated with lower incidence of chronic diseases.1,2 One of today’s biggest focus areas in nutritional research is to explain the reasons why fruit and vegetable intake has such a positive effect on our health. Is it the valuable vitamin and mineral content? The fiber content? Or could it be due to the very diverse array of phytonutrients that F&V contain? Maybe all of these play a role? Naturally, there is a clear need to better understand the protective effects of F&V and their constituent bioactive phytonutrients.Read More

Jingle Well: Boosting Immune Health During Holiday Travel


By Dr. David Shepherd
SAB Member

After the problems and restrictions of the pandemic many of us feel like getting away for pleasure or to visit loved ones. However, even before we reach our destination there are a hundred things to take care of. Find a place to go to, organize how to get there, what clothes we need. All this adds to our stress even before we leave. When we speak of stress it usually means we are stressing our immune system, which makes us vulnerable to health problems. Taking care of our wellbeing before we leave on a trip is probably the last thing on our check list.Read More

Everyday Energy


Dr. Todd Miller
Scientific Advisory Board member

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

By Dr. Liz Applegate

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

By John Miller,
SAB Director, Product Technologist, Researcher

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

Fueling a Lifetime of Health: Early Nutrition for Children’s Long-Term Wellbeing

By Dr. Arianna Carughi,
Scientific Advisory Board member

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
