Is Regenerative Organic Agriculture the Answer to Climate Change?

We are at the most critical moment in the history of our planet, as man-made changes to the climate threaten our security on Earth. But there is a technology for massive planetary geo-engineering that is tried and tested and available right now. As Diana Martin and Dr Andrew Smith from the Rodale Institute explain, this solution is farming. Specifically, regenerative organic agriculture which could sequester more than 100 percent of current annual CO2 emissions. They’re not joking! Regenerative organic agriculture works to maximise carbon fixation while minimising the loss of that carbon once returned to the soil, effectively reversing the greenhouse effect. Plus, there’s a decent ROI here: consumer demand for organic is as strong as ever and sustainable practices are increasingly important. The Rodale Institute has a full white paper to download on their website here. Climate change is a huge concern to every industry and this is a down-to-earth solution to global warming—in a t...

Vitafoods Insights Podcast: Hyperhomocysteinemia—The New Concern for Healthy Ageing

An oft-overlooked concern for pregnancy and healthy ageing, hyperhomocysteinemia can affect infant development, cognitive health and heart health. Homocysteine is a sulphur-containing amino acid generated from methionine, which is essential. The plasmatic concentration of homocysteine is the result of a strong connection between a person’s dietary habits and their genetic factors, meaning while the percentage of the population at risk is small, it’s crucial to get tested for homocysteine levels if a person is trying to get pregnant or at risk of heart disease. Elevated levels negatively influence many bodily functions, as explained by Giorgio Amadori, Inpha2000, at Vitafoods Europe 2018.

Vitafoods Insights Podcast: The Need for Natural Alternatives to Caffeine in Sports Nutrition

Humans have made good use of botanical ingredients to boost intellectual and physical performance for centuries, and none is more prevalent than caffeine. Coffee is one of the world’s most popular and widely consumed natural stimulants in daily life, used by millions for their morning boost and to support their physical performance, especially during prolonged exercise. But it’s well-known caffeine has many undesirable side effects if too much is ingested—including increased arterial blood pressure, risk of arrhythmias during exercise, reduction of coronary blood flow and hypokalaemia. As it’s impossible to know how much caffeine you can tolerate without trial and error, there is strong interest in finding natural alternatives to replace it: enter mango leaf extract. Dr Nigel Gericke, Scientific Director, Nektium Pharma, joins us to scare your host into putting down her coffee mug, discuss the prevalence of caffeine in sports nutrition and highlight the potential for mango leaf ...
