In our newest science review, we explore the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiseptic properties of synbiotics, how endurance exercise can improve vitamins' impact on metabolic syndrome, and why seniors should embrace nuts for healthy ageing.
Vitamin D supplementation for pregnant women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) may lead to improvements in their glucose and cholesterol levels, and lower their offspring's risk of hyperbilirubinemia, say researchers in Iran.
New research from South Australian scientists has shown that vitamin D is unlikely to protect individuals from multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, or other neurodegenerative disorders.
More evidence is needed to determine if supplementation with calcium and / or cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) can increase skeletal muscle strength and serum testosterone in young adult men, say researchers in India.
There is no clinical evidence to show that the antioxidant properties of vitamins D and E help to improve the success rate of in vitro fertilisation (IVF), despite a better pregnancy rate in a treatment group supplemented with the vitamins.
