B vitamins are critical for the production of neurotransmitters in the brain.
Insufficiency is associated with cognitive decline.1-3
Folate has a number of mechanisms by which it can enhance cognitive performance. These include lowering inflammation and reducing homocysteine.1,4
Elevated homocysteine and chronic inflammation are linked to degenerative brain disorders.
Perhaps the most far-reaching implication of folate in the brain is its ability to modify gene expression.1
This means that folate plays a role in turning a gene “on” or “off.”

Cataracts cause about half of all cases of blindness worldwide.1,2
By age 80, more than half of all Americans will have cataracts, or will have undergone surgery to remove them.3
Researchers have been investigating two different but related forms of the nutrient carnosine to help slow the development of cataracts as well as improve visual performance of cataract-affected eyes.

Trimethylglycine (TMG), also known as betaine or glycine betaine, is a derivative of the amino acid glycine. The compound was originally discovered in sugar beets. It also occurs in such foods as quinoa, wheat bran and spinach. Trimethylglycine is made in the bodies of most organisms from the nutrient choline.
The good thing about workout programs is they’re individual and not universal. We all differ in fitness level, personality, lifestyle, and goals.

Would you like to potentially add 9 years to your life expectancy? That's what research on the nutrient coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) implies is possible.1
CoQ10 is well known for its heart and vascular health benefits.2 By helping the cellular powerhouses known as mitochondria burn fuel more effectively, CoQ10 is able to protect not only the heart but every cell in your body.3

Aristotelia chilensis is a species of tree that is native to the rainforests of Chile and southern Argentina. Its fruit is known as Chilean wineberry or maqui, which is used as food or consumed as a dietary supplement, primarily because of its high anthocyanin content.1
Along with açaí and goji berries, maqui berries are considered by many to be a “superfruit.” An analysis of the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC, a measure of a food’s antioxidant property) of over 120 species and varieties of fruit produced within the south Andes determined that maqui along with two other fruits “largely outscored” all others.2
Acne is often a concern among adolescents, teenagers and, increasingly, adults — particularly women. While this chronic inflammatory condition associated with oily skin may not last a lifetime, acne pustules and cysts can leave red marks and mild to deep pitting that, unless treated, can be carried into old age.
One way to improve heart health is to exercise. But what if you could achieve some of the benefits of exercise without stepping on a treadmill?
According to a recent study, that dream can become a reality with a supplement: curcumin.
One reason exercise is so good for the heart is because it improves endothelial function. When researchers compared exercise to curcumin supplementation, they found that curcumin was just as effective as exercise in improving endothelial function.
