Feeling Regulatory Pressure, Amazon Puts Supplements in the Hot Seat

By Erik Goldman

The phrase, “hot on Amazon” is taking on new and problematic meanings for the dietary supplement industry this Spring.

Beginning on April 15, Amazon began requiring supplement companies that sell on the platform to guarantee that their products can withstand temperatures up to 155o F, and still meet label claims for stability and potency.

Companies that cannot guarantee heat stability will risk having their temperature-sensitive products dropped from Amazon.

How Financial Stress Impacts the Immune System

Written by Kristen Schepker

A recent study of a group of hedge fund traders suggests that the immune system responds to financial stress as if it were a disease. The findings suggest a striking correlation between the human immune system and the volatility of entire financial systems, including the stock market.

It "Should Be Like Masks” Resolution Urges Congress to Recognize Value of Vitamin D

Written by Erik Goldman

Vitamin D “should be like masks. Everybody should know about it. The government agencies should be pushing it that way,” says Congressman Glenn Grothman (R-WI). Grothman, representing Wisconsin’s 6th congressional district, wants to see vitamin D become part of the nation’s COVID control efforts. Last month, he introduced a resolution urging the federal agencies to […]

Building Youthful NAD+ Power with Precursors, Sirtuin-Activating Compounds & Methylation Support

Written by Erik Goldman

The depletion of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) over time has emerged as a central driver of much of the degenerative decline associated with aging. Depletion of NAD+ can negatively impact a multitude of core biochemical functions that may influence healthspan.

Because NAD+ levels steadily drop with age, the repletion of this vital metabolic cofactor has become a dedicated focus in longevity research, as well as in functional medicine practice.

In this free webinar, Dr. Christopher Shade of Quicksilver Scientific will delve into NAD+’s role in metabolism and homeostasis, the ways it is affected by the aging process, and strategies for successfully supplementing with NAD+ precursors like nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) to course-correct many aspects of mitochondrial health.

He’ll also look at the benefits of NMN supplementation as it pertains to genome and immune system integrity, brain function and more.  You’ll learn about the interconnections between NAD+ and sirtuin activation, as well as the importance of balancing methylation support for optimal longevity effects.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How and why NAD+ levels decline with age, and how this impacts longevity
  • How depletion of NAD+ levels affects energy generation, cognition, inflammatory response, intestinal barrier function, circadian rhythms, and genome integrity
  • Why adequate NAD+ levels are required to achieve desired results from intermittent fasting, water fasting, keto diets, and fasting-mimicking diets
  • The most effective way to build NAD+ levels through supplementation with liposomal NMN, methylation support, and sirtuin-activating compounds
