April
Probiotic for Fat Loss -- (4/30/2016) A new study found that a probiotic decreased body fat in overweight adults, without diet or exercise. The probiotic in the study differs from many on the market in an interesting way. Get more information about this and other studies with probiotics, as well as our tests of products, in the Probiotic Supplements Review >>
Knee Supplements Studied -- (4/26/2016) A recent clinical trial evaluated glucosamine with chondroitin versus placebo for reducing pain and improving function in people with osteoarthritis of the knee. See the details, along with results of our tests of popular supplements, see our Review of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM and Boswellia Supplements for Joint Health >>
Curcumin and Cognition -- (4/23/2016) Curcumin (from turmeric) has been shown to provide anti-inflammatory effects, helpful in osteoarthritis and gastrointestinal conditions, and even an anti-depressant effect. A recent long-term study evaluated its effects on cognition and memory in older people. See the results in the "What It Does" section of the Turmeric/Curcumin Supplements Review (which includes our tests of popular products) >>
Vitamin D and Cancer -- (4/20/2016) Several studies, including one published this month, show that sufficient levels of vitamin D in the body are associated with decreased risk of various forms of cancer. What's the best level? See "Cancer" in the What It Does section of the Vitamin D Supplements Review >>
Diabetes Cured With Low Cal Diet -- (4/20/2016) A recent study found that type 2 diabetes was reversed in 40% of people who followed an 8-week, very low calorie diet consisting mainly of a diet shake. Get details about the study in the "What It Does" section of the Protein Powders and Drinks Review — for Body Building, Sports & Dieting >>
Vitamin D and Allergy -- (4/17/2016) Vitamin D is known to modulate the immune system. Having sufficient levels is associated with reduced risk of allergy and asthma. A recent study showed that giving vitamin D to pregnant women and their infants resulted in fewer infants being allergic to house dust mites and needing to see a doctor for asthma. For details, see "Allergy," as well as "Asthma," in the What It Does section of the Vitamin D Supplements Review >>
How Fish Oil May Help With Depression -- (4/16/2016) Studies have shown that fish oil can help some people suffering from major depression. A recent study suggests how it may work. For details, see the "What It Does" section of the Fish Oil Supplements Review >>
Too Much Vitamin D Weakens Legs -- (4/12/2016) In recent months we have reported that giving too much vitamin D to people who don't need it increases the risk of falls. A major study now shows that it also weakens leg muscles — apparently to the surprise of the researchers. Keep in mind that giving vitamin D to people who are deficient in it can decrease the risk of falls. Get the details in the Vitamin D Supplements Review >>
Vitamin D Improves Heart Output -- (4/5/2016) A recent study in people with chronic heart failure (poor heart output) found that vitamin D improved heart output. However, the study did not achieve its main objective — to increase walking distance. The dose may have been to blame. For details see the "What It Does" section of the Vitamin D Supplements Review >>
