Ph.D., Nutrition, Sports Nutritionist

We all know the drill: wash your hands, avoid touching your face and eyes, stay at home and stay at least 1.5 – 2m apart when in public to maintain physical separation. These along with other guidelines are in place for our own safety in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus. But wait!! What about one of our best defences against illness? Exercise!! Regular moderate to vigorous activities like walking, jogging and dancing adding up to 150 minutes weekly, play a critical role in supporting your immune system and protecting your body against illness caused by bacteria and viruses. In fact, staying fit (or getting fit) during this pandemic may be your ticket to staying healthy at this critical time and even after the acute threat passes.

Keeping up your Vitamin D Levels

Dr. Arianna Carughi
SAB Member, Nutritional Scientist

One of the most important things we can do these days is keep up our vitamin D status (or levels in our blood).

Human Immune Function: Facts and Realities for today, and always


By John Miller
SAB Director, Product Technologist, Researcher

As everyone in the world comes to grips with the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic I thought it would be a good time for us to remind ourselves of how important our immune system is, how much we take it for granted and how much it is dependent upon our ability to provide it with the nutrition it needs to deliver its highest level of protection. This is a message the NeoLife Scientific Advisory Board has been delivering for decades, but it has never been more appropriate than right now.Continue reading

Scientific Evidence: Omega-3s Support Brain Health Function

salmonJohn Miller, Scientific Advisory Board Director points to scientific evidence on 3 specific omega-3s found in NeoLife Salmon Oil Plus.
