3:57 PM | Vitamin D Supplementation and Health
A colleague of mine, Dr Jane Doe, recently expressed an opinion that vitamin D supplementation is ineffective in raising serum 25(OH)D3 concentrations.

2:40 PM | Feeding the Brain Requires more than One Nutrient
Omega-3 fatty acids, especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are required for brain development and function. ScienceDaily summarized mechanistic studies in female frogs and tadpoles demonstrating dietary deficiencies in omega-3 fatty acids limit brain development. In a retrospective analysis of 168 elderly people with mild cognitive impairment who underwent cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), brain atrophy rates were highest in those with lower plasma omega-3, DHA and eicosapentaenoic […]

7:48 AM | Do All Vitamin Supplements Have the Same Quality?
A question that recently came up on our Twitter feed was about whether vitamin supplements differ by quality*. Does it matter which brand of dietary supplement that people choose? Ideally, the actual contents of dietary supplements would match the label information – no more and no less, with no added surprises in the mix. The degree to which this occurs depends on a surprising number of different factors.

3:17 PM | Does Your Brain have the Vitamin E it Needs?
Even though the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) identified vitamin E as a shortfall nutrient, very little attention has been devoted to vitamin E in recent years. The truth of the matter is that most randomized controlled trials with vitamin E were conducted in patients with chronic diseases, the generalizability of finding to healthy adults is uncertain, and the vitamin E status (serum α-tocopherol) of the volunteers is unknown. Antioxidants, like vitamin E, vitamin C […]

5:47 PM | Omega-3 Fatty Acid Headlines are Smelling Fishy
It makes me want to cry out with frustration when I read headlines that the there is something fishy about omega-3 supplements or that fish oil supplements do not prevent heart disease. Let me share a different perspective on the value of omega-3 supplements. The biggest myth is that encouraging supplement use will undermine healthy food choices and contributes to unhealthy dietary behaviors. This is incorrect. The record shows that people who use dietary supplements are more likely to have […]
