Skin cancer accounts for 40% of all human malignancies.1
Over 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers are caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure.2
UV causes skin cancer by damaging cell DNA, inhibiting DNA repair, and impeding the removal of aged cells that cannot be repaired.3-5
Scientists have identified a plant extract that—taken orally prior to sun exposure—inhibits UV-triggered DNA damage.6,7

Sure, ideally everyone would be eating fresh, non-processed foods all of the time, but we get it. We know that it can be expensive to eat this way and that sometimes convenience and simple economics guide our decisions. So, here’s the question that begs answering: are there any healthy packaged foods? The answer is yes.

Each morning, about 64% of adult Americans consume at least one cup of coffee.1
The brain responds by releasing noradrenaline that provides a quick energy boost. This is often followed by a “caffeine letdown” whereby noradrenaline in the brain is depleted and subsequent coffee fails to provide sufficient mental boost.
Is your skin losing its once youthful appearance? Have you noticed deeper and deeper wrinkles and more and more dark colored age-spots? We actually find this interesting.

Osteoarthritis is a joint disease caused by trauma, obesity, or most often a consequence of normal aging.
The most affected area in osteoarthritis is joint cartilage.
Cartilage consists of smooth tissue that covers the ends of bones in joints such as the knee, hip, and wrist. When cartilage is properly functioning, your bones effortlessly glide over each other with each movement. Cartilage also helps your joints absorb the impact of movement.
One of the most common ailments that limit individuals in their work, physical activity, and leisurely hobbies is arthritis.1

According to the Singapore National Survey, about 1 in 4 Singapore residents aged 30 to 69 years have high blood pressure. For those aged 60 to 69, more than 1 in 2 persons have high blood pressure.
