Dietary intake of fruits and vegetables

Dietary intake of fruits and vegetables can literally change your life. 

Dietary intake of fruits and vegetables can literally change your life. Carotenoids first took center-stage as protector nutrients in the mid 1970’s when researchers at the US Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identified their role in reducing the risk of disease. National Cancer Institute researcher Regina Ziegler went on to reveal its connection to lung cancer prevention in 1986, and then showed a lower risk of cancer in those with the highest dietary intake of fruit and vegetable-derived carotenoids. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and other studies at the time found carotenoids also functioned in heart health and reduced the risk of heart disease. Proof of benefit soon expanded to include eye health and visual acuity and immune function.

Research conducted on NeoLife’s Carotenoid Complex has spanned more than 40 years. It started with the first ever proof of bioavailability of whole food-derived carotenoids. USDA researchers went on to reaffirm its bioavailability and then demonstrated its cardio-protective (see chart 6) and cellular protective powers. This was followed by two more studies conducted by the USDA researchers showing Carotenoid Complex’s beneficial effects on immune capacity. In 2001, GNLD researchers reaffirmed bioavailability across an even broader spectrum of dietary carotenoids.

Evidence supporting the importance of carotenoid intake Dietary intake of fruits and vegetables for health benefits continues to mount. Concern by leading health authorities over insufficient carotenoid consumption has resulted in campaigns to increase awareness for higher levels of carotenoid intake.

HEART AND CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH: A 2004 study conducted by a team at the Harvard Medical School found that men in the top quintile with higher levels of serum carotenoids (including alphacarotene, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, and beta-cryptoxanthin) had a 40% decreased risk of ischemic stroke than those with the lowest serum levels. Similarly, a 2008 study of 559 men showed that increased intake of alpha and beta carotene from carrots equated to a 17% reduction in risk of cardiovascular (CVD) death. Swedish researchers in 2006 correlated consistently lower levels of the carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta cryptoxanthin with coronary artery disease occurrence. The healthy controls had significantly higher levels of these carotenoids in their blood.

PROSTATE HEALTH: Since the early nineties, scientific research has reported a connection between the carotenoid Lycopene and prostate cancer risk reduction. One study showed that Lycopene (from tomatoes) present in the diet 4 to 5 times per week, attributed to a 25% reduction in prostate cancer risk. The 2-year study found that an 82% increase in blood Lycopene levels corresponded with a 42% decrease in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels.

IMMUNE HEALTH: Swedish researchers in 2001 observed higher levels of natural killer cells (NK cells) in people with higher levels of these carotenoids, confirming the relationship between dietary carotenoid intake, immune capacity and health.

VISION HEALTH: In a 48-week intervention trial, researchers tested Lutein supplementation for vision protective-function in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP). They concluded: “Comparing the development of vision measures against the natural loss expected to occur over the course of the 48 weeks, most measures showed reduced decline, and these reductions were significant for normal illumination”.

MENTAL PERFORMANCE: A 2007 French study showed a connection between carotenoids and cognitive performance in a healthy elderly population. Study author Tasnime Akbaraly states “In this study, low levels of specific plasma carotenoids (lycopene and zeaxanthin) were associated to poor cognitive functioning in a highly educated, community-dwelling elderly population”.

INFLAMMATORY HEALTH: A 2005 UK study by Cambridge University researchers showed that study subjects with the highest (top one third) daily intake of beta-cryptoxanthin had only about one-half the risk of developing polyarthritis than those in the bottom one-third. Researchers commented that even modest increases in beta-cryptoxanthin intake were associated with a significantly reduced risk of developing inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis.

CAROTENOID COMPLEX by NeoLife was the first to offer more than just Beta Carotenoid. Carotenoid Complex offers 15 major carotenes from human foods in the same ratios as nature offers. It’s still made from those foods and Clinically Proven to digest effectively. Clinically Proven to boost human immunity 37% in just 20 days.

Neolife Vitamin A is todays vitamin choice

Neolife Vitamin A is todays vitamin choice

Neolife Vitamin A is todays vitamin choice supports healthy vision, bones, and skin, and acts as a natural antioxidant. NeoLife’s Vitamin A offers a water-miscible formula from one of nature’s finest sources of vitamin A: pure liver oil from pollack (a species of cod) that contains essentially no vitamin D.

Digestibility Water Miscible oil is much smaller easier to digest molecules than Water Soluble or plain oil.

Why Vitamin A?

A fat-soluble nutrient, vitamin A is essential for normal growth and bone development.* Vitamin A helps keep the skin and other epithelial tissues (such as the lining of the nose, throat, respiratory system, and genitourinary tract) healthy and free from infection. Vitamin A is well known for its role in promoting good vision, especially at night. Vitamin A deficiency is a major health problem in developing countries, which has prompted a great deal of research into the vitamin and its roles in health. Emerging areas of interest include vitamin A’s ability to promote immune system health. Vitamin A, a natural antioxidant, helps protect the lipid portions of cells and tissues from free-radical damage.*

Our Solution: Vitamin A

Contains only pure, species-specific fish oil, derived solely from pollack, a species of cod that yields the highest quality natural vitamin A. Water-miscible for improved absorption. Emulsifiers reduce the size of the lipid droplets containing vitamin A. The result is a water-miscible form of the vitamin which is more quickly absorbed. Convenient serving. Pure protein, soft gelatin capsules protect freshness and potency and eliminate “fishy” taste, then dissolve quickly for maximum availability. High concentration of vitamin A with essentially no vitamin D.

Vitamin A is required for effective immune system function, low light vision, radiant skin, protein utilization, and normal growth and development. Vitamin A also functions as an antioxidant, promotes healing, and supports a healthy reproductive system.* NeoLife’s breakthrough water miscible technology, derived from a unique blend of components, including apple pectin and soy lecithin, encourages faster, more efficient absorption of vitamin A. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Packaged with safety seal.

SUGGESTED USE: 1 softgel daily. If you are less than 12 years old or more than 65 years old take 1 softgel every 2 days. Not recommended for use if pregnant or likely to become pregnant.

Vitamin C is todays highlight choice

Vitamin C Highlights Blog

Vitamin C is todays highlight choice. There are two vitamin C’s to choose from: Super C or All C. Super C features NeoLife’s threshold controlled technology which helps maintain a stable supply of vitamin C in the body for up to 8 hours. Two Super Cs in the morning and 2 at night keeps you covered in vitamin C- 24/7.

All C is a tasty chewable tablet that contains the equivalent of four large oranges. It’s great for kids or people who have a hard time swallowing pills

Most animals make their own vitamin C, but humans do not and must supplement. People who supplement with vitamin C are less likely to have heart attacks or strokes!

Vitamin C helps decrease protein in the urine which purifies the urine helping to keep you free from bladder and kidney infections. It also helps lower the risk of kidney complications in Type 2 diabetics.

The molecular structure of vitamin C is so similar to that of sugar that cancer mistakes it for sugar,(cancer’s favorite food) gobbles it up and dies. The constant presence of vitamin C is crucial for cancer patients.

Vitamin C also helps the body produce collagen which makes it a great anti-aging nutrient. NeoLife puts collagen in Super C making it great for your skin.

NeoLife’s exclusive Neo-Plex is a natural concentration of everything remaining after water has been removed from whole citrus; the skin, pulp, juice, bioflavonoids- everything nature intended as vitamin C.

Vitamin C acts as a antihistamine when taken in sufficient dosage. My daughter in law has cat allergies but hates the dryness effects of drugs. When she visits us she takes 5 ALL-C tablets and doesn’t experience runny eyes or nose for 8 hours.
