    Protein: Is There Room for More Innovation?

    12.14.22

    Protein has been a staple ingredient for decades in the sports nutrition category. People from health & active nutrition consumers to fitness enthusiasts and athletes lean on protein to better their performance and improve their recovery. And yet, while whey protein continues to rule this space, the market continues to make room, LOTS of room, for new protein sources like pea, chia, and more. But how do they compare to the industry’s leading standard, whey protein?
     
    In this webinar you will learn about:
    • The leading protein trends and categories – whey protein vs. everything else
    • How consumers are embracing—or not embracing—newer protein sources
    • Ways companies are reducing protein payloads in an effort to improve sensory characteristics of products
    • The commoditization of protein and how brands can differentiate
    • Innovations that make protein work better

    Why Vitamin K2 is Vital for Women

    Why Vitamin K2 is Vital for Women's Healthy Aging

    12.08.22

    Compromised bone and cardiovascular health are two core issues challenging our wellness as we age, and they are particularly troubling for women.

    We reach our peak bone mass in our 20s-30s. From there, it is about staving off a steady decline of our bone mass, and women's bone mass takes a sharper decline once they reach their menopausal years due to hormone changes. Meanwhile, cardiovascular issues typically develop 7 to 10 years later in women than in men, yet it is still the major mortality issue for women over 65 years.

    An impressive body of clinical evidence has demonstrated that MenaQ7® Vitamin K2 as MK-7 can simultaneously support bone and cardiovascular health. Still, a growing body of research is highlighting its potential for supporting other important areas allowing women to age healthily, including pain and inflammation, and brain health. Further, we will discuss how a mother securing adequate K2 intakes also feeds into her children's health.

    How K2 has Emerged as the Essential Nutrient for All Stages of Life

    How K2 has Emerged as the Essential Nutrient for All Stages of Life

    12.08.21

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

    Age-related wear impacts both heart and bone health, and when they are compromised, it is an implication of a vitamin deficiency: Vitamin K2. Protecting hearts and bones is an essential facet of aging healthily, but it's a foundation we must establish early. Simply adding a vitamin to one's daily routine has been clinically proven to do both.

    Even more exciting: new research is linking this essential nutrient's mechanism of action to impacting other health areas beyond just bone and heart, including the brain, vision, general/respiratory, pain and inflammation, and more. This growing body of evidence strengthens the argument that Vitamin K2 could be one of the most crucial healthy aging nutrients on the market today.
