Magnesium L-threonate is the magnesium salt of a naturally occurring vitamin C metabolite L-threonic acid. Magnesium, a divalent cation, is important for neuronal activity as it is a co-factor for enzymes present in the neurons or glial cells.1,2 Magnesium and Cognitive Health Two observational studies found that individuals with a diet rich in magnesium have a lower risk of cognitive decline: 86% reduced risk in an Australian cohort of 1,400 elderly people between 60-72 years of developing mild cognitive impairment…

Inflammatory Immune Responses Inflammation is an essential biological response that may be triggered by a variety of stimuli, including tissue injury, pathogens, toxins, and oxidative stress. Inflammation underlies many normal physiologic processes, yet it also underlies many pathologic states—especially when inflammatory responses become excessive or chronic. Inflammation initiation pathways involve several enzymes, transcription factors, and signaling molecules (i.e., chemokines and cytokines) that can be modulated by a variety of agents, including select botanical ingredients. Mechanisms of Immunomodulation by Curcumin, Xanthohumol,…

Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are among the most abundant components in breast milk,1 and a growing body of research has shown they have diverse functions and are known to confer numerous health benefits and advantages to nursing infants. Emerging research has also shown that HMOs can promote health in adults, including those with gastrointestinal (GI) dysfunction. Out of approximately 200 distinct HMO structures identified to date, 2’Fucosyllactose (2’-FL) is the most abundantly produced HMO, with an average of 2.4 grams produced…
