New Article Demonstrates Daily Use of Certain Supplements Can Decrease Health Care Expenditures

Use of specific dietary supplements can have a positive effect on health care costs through avoided hospitalizations related to Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), according to a new article published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements1. The article, “From Science to Finance—A Tool for Deriving Economic Implications from the Results of Dietary Supplement Clinical Studies,” published by Christopher Shanahan and Robert de Lorimier, Ph.D., explores a potential cost-benefit analysis tool that, when applied to a high-risk population (U.S. adults over 55 with CHD) who take dietary supplements, specifically omega-3 fatty acid or B vitamin dietary supplements, can read more…

PureHeart Probiotic: An Evidence-Based Probiotic for Heart Health*

The estimated 10-100 trillion bacteria that inhabit the digestive tract express an array of genes exceeding the human genome by a magnitude of 150.1,2 Collectively known as the microbiome, these genes endow bacteria with metabolic capabilities that influence nutrient absorption, energy balance, body composition, lipid and lipoprotein homeostasis, and other factors related to cardiometabolic health.*

A novel strain for heart health*

The confluence of the microbiome and cardiometabolic health has intrigued scientists for several decades. Over the past two years, several recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials have investigated a unique strain of Lactobacillus reuteri known as NCIMB 30242. read more…
