A new study finds high prevalence of vitamin D inadequacy in 14 to 18 year olds at a time of the year when vitamin D levels should be at their peak (post-summer). The research identifies the level of vitamin D intake needed by adolescents to avoid vitamin D deficiency and ensure adequacy. Vitamin D…

Several peptides have an antibacterial effect - but they are broken down in the human body too quickly to exert this effect. Researchers have now succeeded in encasing peptides in a protective coat, which could prolong their life in the human body. This is an important breakthrough because peptides…
