Webinar: The top 3 macronutrients for brain health: Amino acids, fatty acids, and cholesterol

January 15th, 2015 Presented by Kelly Heim, Ph.D. The brain is a structurally and functionally unique organ that requires dietary amino acids, fatty acids and cholesterol to maintain homeostasis. Amino acids from dietary protein serve as indispensable building blocks for neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine, and for neuropeptides that regulate emotions, thoughts, behavior, […]

Webinar: Nitric Oxide, Vascular Health and Athletic Performance: Beyond Arginine

November 22nd, 2014 Presented by Kelly Heim, Ph.D. Nitric oxide (NO) is an endogenous vasodilator that maintains cardiovascular health and supports athletic performance. In the body, NO is made from the amino acid L-arginine. This process is heavily influenced by a variety of dietary factors, including phytochemicals, antioxidants, and the amino acid L-citrulline. New clinical […]

Webinar: From the mouth to the arterial wall: The oral-systemic approach to cardiometabolic health

June 25, 2014 Presented by Dan Sindelar, DMD Rapidly accumulating evidence highlights oral health as a major determinant of cardiovascular and metabolic health, and an estimated 80% of the population is affected by this relationship. Accordingly, oral-systemic medicine can guide millions of patients toward healthier hearts and metabolic wellness. Regardless of your medical specialty, you […]

Webinar: Condition-Specific Probiotics: What Every Practitioner Should Know

May 28, 2014 Presented by Kelly Heim, Ph.D. Although probiotics are widely recognized for their digestive and immune health benefits, strong evidence also supports their utility in cardiovascular and mental health. Since different types of organisms produce unique effects, selecting evidence-based strains is imperative for condition-specific use. In this webinar, pharmacologist Kelly Heim, Ph.D. will […]

Webinar: The path toward cardiometabolic health: Using a simple biomarker to measure progress

March 26, 2014 Presented by Michelle Beidelschies, Ph.D. and Kelly Heim, Ph.D. Adiponectin is a metabolic hormone that maintains healthy glucose and lipid homeostasis, vascular endothelial function and cardioprotection. In large studies, the cardiometabolic benefits of exercise and a healthy diet consistently correlate with significant elevations in plasma adiponectin levels. In clinical practice, adiponectin is […]

Webinar: Cardiometabolic health from the inside out: Targeting visceral fat, glucose and lipid metabolism with low-molecular weight monomeric and oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs)

January 21, 2014 Presented by Kohei Homma, Ph.D. An expanding body of published research supports the broad utility of OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) in cardiometabolic medicine. Oligonol®, a patented lychee fruit extract, delivers low-molecular weight, bioavailable OPCs with clinical benefits documented in over 20 clinical trials to date. Among many positive outcomes, the studies show that […]
