    Affron®, Your Best Support During Menopause

    09.15.21

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

    Perimenopause (aka Around Menopause) is the time when the body naturally transitions to menopause. Women start perimenopause at different ages with most usually starting in their 40s. This time is often filled with challenges from hot flashes, night sweats, and sleep disturbances to changes in cognitive function, performance, stress, anxiety, and depression.

    Followed by menopause, which is a period of hormonal turmoil, the changes during this time of life are particularly distressing as they occur at a time the woman is particularly busy and active.

    Attend this webinar to learn about Affron®, a one-of-a-kind solution for stress, sleep, and mood-related challenges associated with menopause. During this webinar we’ll dive deep into:

    • The results of a 12-week double-blind, placebo-controlled study that showed how Affron®,  an all-natural saffron extract, can reduce stress and improve mood scores without negative estrogenic effects in women during perimenopause.
    • Affron® and its superior extraction process, 7 clinical studies, capacity to improve mood, relieve stress and occasional sadness, support relaxation, and help enhance sleep.
    • How the safety and effectiveness of Affron® opens up new horizons for brand manufacturers to formulate an innovative women’s health product.

    Improving Quality Control Testing with Efficient Rapid RT-PCR Methods

    Improving Quality Control Testing with Efficient Rapid RT-PCR Methods

    09.01.21

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

    Food Industry Quality Control requires effective testing solutions to increase laboratory efficiency and reduce testing costs. A combined method that can streamline multiple microbiological tests can reduce laboratory costs and hands-on-time, but the development and validation of a combined method poses challenges regarding universal enrichment, limit of detection, and specificity.

    Advancements in technology, specifically, DNA-based RT-PCR methods, have allowed Food and Dietary Supplement Industries to explore small-format molecular methodologies to overcome these challenges. Herbalife Nutrition in conjunction with bioMerieux, Inc. and FoodChek System developed a multiplex pathogen detection assay for the combined screening of E. coliS. aureus, and Salmonella spp. employing a universal enrichment validated on multiple raw and finished product nutraceutical matrices.

    During this webinar, you will get to hear from Chris Thompson, director of microbiology testing, from Herbalife Nutrition and Ben Pascal, CBO at Invisible Sentinel, who will talk about the development and validation of the RT-PCR assay.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. How Herbalife and bioMerieux developed the GENE-UP® NUTRAPLEX™ triplex real-time PCR assay.

    2. An understanding for the streamlined workflow for all relevant matrices with universal enrichment. 

    3. How the new assay has improved workflow, efficiency and provided overall cost savings.

    DR7: Next Generation Probiotic for a Healthier Gut & Brain

    DR7: Next Generation Probiotic for a Healthier Gut & Brain

    02.10.21

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND
     

    Probiotic microorganisms have a long history of safe use and have been documented for various health benefits. Many strains of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) from the genera of Lactobacillus have been identified to possess probiotic properties. They have been much emphasized for their roles to regulate gut well-being. But recent evidence has illustrated the potential of LAB for brain health, ranging from neurodegenerative diseases to stress, memory and cognition.


    In this webinar you’ll learn about Lactobacillus plantarum DR7, a probiotic isolated from cow milk isolate in Penang, Malaysia, which demonstrates the ability to improve stress and anxiety symptoms as well as memory improvement. In addition, DR7 effected a reversal of symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s Disease in a fruit fly model, accompanied by distinct changes of gut microbiota profiles.

    The administration of DR7 for 12-weeks in stressed adults has contributed to improve stress and anxiety scores, in addition to memory and cognitive abilities, primarily via enhancement along the serotonin pathway and maintenance of the dopamine pathway.

    Gut microbiota analyses of human subjects also showed correlations between changes in neurotransmitter genes and different taxonomic levels of gut microbiota along the serotonin and dopamine pathways. All these evidences involving various models, strongly indicated an effect of DR7 along the gut-brain-axis.
