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
Food Derived Carotenoids Protect Against Lung Cancer
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
New Scientific Evidence: Carotenoids Protect Brain Function (found in NeoLife Carotenoid Complex)
By: John Miller, Scientific Advisory Board Director
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
