Vitamin D and Atherosclerosis
Increased vitamin D intake helps reduce the formation of foam cells, an early indicator of atherosclerosis. These cells are formed by white blood cells that engulf or “eat” oxidized LDL cholesterol and will then contribute to arterial hardening and reduced blood flow.
IPM’s new Vitamin D + K2 provides a clinically significant dose of vitamin D3, 5000 IU per veggie cap, and vitamin K in the MK-7 form of K2, which is highly bioavailable.

Green tea Extract and leukemia
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia is a cancer of a particular type of white blood cell called a lymphocyte. In chronic lymphocytic leukemia, the DNA of a lymphocyte is damaged, so that it can’t fight infection, but it grows out of control and crowds out the healthy blood cells that can fight infection. According to a recent study, in a phase 1 clinical trial, the green tea extract EGCg decreased absolute lymphocyte counts and reduced swollen and enlarged lymph nodes in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
