Abstract

Context: Arthralgia is common and debilitating for a significant proportion of breast cancer survivors (BCSs) and leads to poor adherence to aromatase inhibitors (AIs). Despite increased recognition of the negative impact of arthralgia on function and the poor adherence that results, very few interventions have been developed to target this side effect.

Objective: This study aimed to determine the feasibility of tai chi to improve well-being for women experiencing AI-associated arthralgias (AIAAs).

Design: The study was a pilot to (1) demonstrate the feasibility of recruitment and retention for read more…

Phytosterols and citrus flavones: Powerful tools for healthy lipid profile management

White paper by Kelly C. Heim, PhD

As essential constituents of plant cell membranes, phytosterols are widely distributed in the plant kingdom and are particularly abundant in nuts, seeds, grains and vegetable oils. Meta-analyses of over 40 human clinical trials have established the efficacy of supplemental phytosterols in maintaining a healthy lipid profile. read more…

Resveratrol and curcumin: Harnessing synergy and maximizing bioavailability

Abstract
Resveratrol and curcumin are the most thoroughly studied polyphenols in integrative medicine. Diverse lines of scientific evidence indicate benefits such as cellular, metabolic, cardiovascular and cognitive health, and recent research has supported a convergence of clinical indications for these compounds. In light of the remarkable overlap in applications and robust efficacy of combinations in preclinical studies, it is not surprising that in the last 2 years, researchers have identified functional synergy between these compounds in antioxidant activity, signal transduction, gene expression and cellular health. read more…
