Protect your eyes when using Computers

Supplements of lutein, long-reported to have benefits for eye health, may protect against the detrimental effects of long-term computer display light exposure, say’s a new study.

Visual function in healthy subjects who received lutein supplementation improved, especially in contrast sensitivity, suggesting that a higher intake of lutein may have beneficial effects on visual performance, wrote the researchers.

IPM’s 4-Sight contains 30mg of Lutein in 2 capsules, along other with herbal extracts and antioxidants to support ocular health.

Milk Thistle for Liver Health

Not only does milk thistle demonstrate hepatoprotective properties but also anticarcenogenic properties as well. In addition, milk thistle’s iron-chelating effect is one mechanism by which it might benefit people with the Hepatitis C virus, as high iron levels are associated with advanced fibrosis and increased risk of hepatic cancer in people with HCV.

IPM’s Silymarin provides 300mg of milk Thistle extract.

Heavy Traffic may Trigger Heart Attacks

People who have had heart attacks are likely to have been in traffic right before their symptoms started, according to new research.

Driving or riding in heavy traffic poses an additional risk of eliciting a heart attack in persons already at elevated risk, said Annette Peters, Ph.D., lead author of the study and head of the research unit at the Institute of Epidemiology, Helmholtz Zentrum Muchen, Germany. In this study, underlying vulnerable coronary artery disease increased the risk of having a heart attack after driving in traffic.

Vitamin D and Body Fat in Children

Adolescents with high intakes of vitamin D may have lower overall body fat and lower amounts of abdominal fat, says a new study.

The results have particular importance since abdominal fat, also known as visceral fat, has been linked to a range of health risks such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and hypertension.
