Human Studies Confirm Vitamin C's Immune Benefits

Posted by on 7/13/2016 to Vitamin News

There is now copious evidence that Vitamin C benefits people with impaired immune function, whether that impairment is the result of disease or simply of aging. In patients with frequent skin infections, for example, who had known impairment in neutrophil tracking and killing of microorganisms, Vitamin C was as effective as a powerful immune-regulating drug, Levamisole, at improving neutrophil function and producing long-lasting remission. But unlike Levamisole, which produced severe side effects causing 8% of subjects to drop out of the study, no patients in the Vitamin C arm dropped out. Similar improvements in neutrophil function, and dramatic clinical recoveries, were seen in patients with recurrent furunculosis (boils), on a dose of 1,000 mg per day.

Iron Plus

Posted by on 4/29/2016 to Vitamin News

Anemia occurs when you have a level of red blood cells (RBCs) in your blood that is lower than normal. Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia, and it occurs when your body doesn’t have enough of the mineral iron. Your body needs iron to make a protein called hemoglobin. This protein is responsible for carrying oxygen to your body’s tissues, which is essential for your tissues and muscles to function effectively. When there isn’t enough iron in your blood stream, the rest of your body can’t get the amount of oxygen it needs.

Fewer Winter Cold and Flu Infections with PatchMD's Vitamin D Patch

Posted by on 2/3/2016 to Vitamin News

As daylight hours grow shorter, incidence of the common cold, flu, and respiratory infections spikes upwards. Scientists have identified reduced Vitamin D levels in winter months as a prime suspect for this increase in infectious disease cases. Vitamin D from all sources lowers the incidence of respiratory infections. For example, Dutch children with the least sun exposure are twice as likely to develop a cough and three times more likely to develop a runny nose compared with children with the most sun exposure.

Our Vitamin D3 Patch Now Includes Magnesium

Posted by on 2/1/2012 to Vitamin News

Numerous studies have shown vitamin D levels may lower the risk several conditions ranging from depression to various cancers. The connection between vitamin D deficiency and cancer was first made by doctors Frank and Cedric Garland of the University of California, San Diego. After finding that evidence of colon cancer was nearly 3 times higher in New York than it was in New Mexico, the Garland Brothers hypothesized lack of sun exposure (resulting in lack of vitamin D) played a role. Observational studies found risk of breast cancer and rectal cancer falls as vitamin D blood levels rise.

Real Sleep Help: The Melatonin Patch Is A Proven Sleep Aid

Posted by on 3/15/2011 to Vitamin News

Insomnia happens to everyone. People just like you who have trouble sleeping are increasingly turning to Melatonin for help. Melatonin, not Malatonin as it is often misspelled on the Internet, is a natural hormone produced by the pineal gland, which is located in the center of your brain. At night, the Melatonin released by your pineal gland causes your heart rate to slow down and your body temperature to drop. As a direct result, the physiological conditions are created that allow for a deep, restful sleep.
