The complexity of the gut microbiome (community of microorganisms) has been estimated to be greater than that of the human brain. A healthy gut microbiome is critical for the health of the brain and mind. High fiber diets can improve mental health and decrease depression. Olivamine® found in Pinnaclife® DigestiveHealth includes ingredients that can pass … Read more
Diets low in fiber and high in processed foods (like the Western diet) have been linked with obesity and inflammation. Obesity is part of the metabolic syndrome that often precedes diabetes and is associated with oxidative stress. Dietary fiber like the fiber found in Pinnaclife® DigestiveHealth with Olivamine® has been found to reduce body fat, … Read more
The community of microbes in the gut known as the gut microbiome promotes processes critical for health. Microbiome imbalance (dysbiosis) may lead to inflammation and associated diseases. Fiber, as a food source for bacteria in the colon can contribute to gut microbiome stability, decreased inflammation and increased health. In addition, the intestinal barrier helps protect … Read more
Your body is constantly exposed to toxins from both internal and external sources. The body has natural mechanisms to help neutralize and eliminate toxins, but without adequate nutritional support those mechanisms can become depleted and overwhelmed leaving the body vulnerable leading to disease and premature aging.
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a biomarker that indicates inflammation throughout the body and is closely tied to cardiovascular risk. CRP may also indicate cancer, infection, auto-immune disease, and more. Natural nutrients like omega-3, fiber, curcumin, hydroxytyrosol, and magnesium may help reduce CRP and associated risks.
Dietary fiber is linked to almost all aspects of diabetes and its complications. Increasing dietary fiber intake through food and sugar-free fiber supplements has been shown to positively impact the risk factors and complications associated with diabetes including heart disease, obesity, brain health and immune health.
Your brain knows you have eaten enough when it receives specific signals to indicate satiety, or fullness. The more satiety signals that get triggered, the more full we feel. Fiber is a low-calorie nutrient that can trigger feelings of fullness through several mechanisms helping you control how much you eat.
Drug-induced nutrient depletion occurs when prescription medications deplete, block absorption, increase excretion, or increase utilization of nutrients resulting in nutrient deficiency. Most medications have potential to deplete nutrients contributing to side effects, poor tolerability, & sometimes discontinuation.
Your heart works hard every day of your life and that requires adequate nutritional support to avoid cardiovascular disease, especially for people with diabetes. Nutrients like CoQ10, carnitine, magnesium, taurine, sulforaphane, olive extracts, and fiber all help support a healthy heart and circulatory system.
