Exercise Reduces Fatigue in Cancer

A meta-analysis of 28 studies of cancer related fatigue found that exercise is more effective at combating fatigue than the usual care provided to patients.

“I believe, in the future, exercise in oncology can play a role, as much a role as exercise plays in cardiac rehab, but we need to do the types of large trials, appropriately powered to answer these questions,” said Karen Mustian, an assistant professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, who was not involved with the review.

Vitamin C May Reduce Risk of Gout in Men

Higher intakes of vitamin C may reduce a man’s risk of gout, the most prevalent inflammatory arthritis in adult males, by up to 45 per cent, says a new study. According to the research findings, for every 500 milligrams increase in vitamin C intake, a man’s risk of gout was cut by 17 per cent. And for men with vitamin C intakes of at least 1,500 milligrams per day, the risk of gout was cut by 45 per cent.

IPM offers several forms of vitamin C in both powder and capsule supplements.

Green Tea Protection Against Gum Disease

Consuming green tea may offer protection against gum disease, a condition that may affect over 30 per cent of the population, suggests a new study. The researchers propose that catechins, the polyphenols found in green tea, may interfere with the body’s inflammatory response to periodontal bacteria, thereby promoting periodontal health, and warding off further disease.

Green tea extracts possess many properties including cardio protective and antiviral. IPM’s EGCg contains a full suite of green tea catechins.
