Episode 5 discusses research that consistently demonstrates multivitamins power up the brain, improve focus and mental clarity, and support memory functions for all age groups.
Did you know that hair loss affects two-thirds of men under the age of 35 in the United States? And almost 85% of men lose significant amount of hair after the age of 50, according to the American Hair Loss Association? New research might have found an explanation for why outdoor air pollution is likely to cause hair loss.
New research from the Future Science Research Center in Korea was presented at the 28th European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress in October. Researchers wanted to research the effect of particulate matter – a term that describes a mix of solid particles and small liquid droplets of different chemicals that people can inhale, like dust and diesel – they found that some pose a serious risk to health.
After 24 hours, the analysis revealed that exposure to PM10-like particles (dust and diesel, for example) lowered levels of a protein key in hair growth called beta-catenin.
The analysis also revealed that the particles lowered levels of other proteins that determine hair growth and hair retention. The more pollution the researchers exposed the proteins to, the more they decreased.
What our healthcare professionals say
Director of Nutrition for Invite Health explains, “We live in an increasingly polluted environment, loaded with toxins; the soil we grow our food in is often nutrient-depleted and many consume processed, factory-made foods supplying scant nutrients. Ironically, our bodies wind up requiring even more vitamins and minerals to effectively metabolize nutrient-depleted foods. Add that depletion with less time spent outdoors, minimal exercise, prescription drugs and medications, and chronic stress, and the result is that many individuals are truly nutritionally deficient.”
This is why many healthcare professionals, including the certified nutritionists at Invite Health, commonly advise their clients to start taking a safe, reliably-made, high-quality multivitamin mineral formula on a daily basis to fill the nutrition deficits in their diet.

According to a new study published in The Lancet by the Global Burden of Disease, individuals in almost every region of the world could benefit from rebalancing their diets to eat optimal amounts of various foods and nutrients. This finding has been reported after the study estimates that one in five deaths globally (equal to 11 million deaths) are associated with poor diet.
The study evaluated the consumption of major foods and nutrients across 195 countries and quantified the impact of poor diets on death and disease from non-communicable diseases, like diabetes and cancer, between the years 1990 and 2017.
It focused on 15 dietary elements – diets low in fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds, milk, fiber, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, healthy fats and diets high in red meat, processed meat, sugary beverages, trans fats and salt. Diets high in sodium, low in whole grains and low in fruit together accounted for more than half of all diet-related deaths globally in 2017.
The authors found that intakes of all 15 dietary elements were sub-optimal for almost every region of the world – no region ate the optimal amount of all dietary factors, and not one dietary factor was eaten in the right amounts by all 21 regions of the world.
Study author Dr. Christopher Murray, Director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, University of Washington, reports, “This study affirms what many have though for several years — that poor diet is responsible for more deaths than any other risk factor in the world.”
How to Counteract Nutrient Deficiencies
When you lack some of the essential nutrients your body needs to function optimally, you have a nutrient deficiency. This can impact your body in a variety of ways, including impacts to your water balance, enzyme function, digestion and metabolism. Resolving these nutrient deficiencies are important for optimal growth, development and function.
According to Archana Gogna, MS, CNS, MBA, Director of Nutrition for InVite® Health, “We live in an increasingly polluted environment, loaded with toxins; the soil we grow our food in is often nutrient-depleted and many consume processed, factory-made foods supplying scant nutrients. Add that depletion with less time spent outdoors, minimal exercise, prescription drugs and medications, and chronic stress and the result is that many individuals are truly nutrient depleted.”
For these reasons, healthcare professionals are advising their patients to start taking a safe, reliably-made, high-quality multivitamin mineral formula on a daily basis to fill the nutritional deficits in their diet. InVite®’s superior multivitamins are designed around a core of energy-producing nutrients along with powerfully protective food-derived antioxidants, designed to address the replenishment of core nutrients depleted by commonly prescribed drugs, to support physical activity, and to support the increased need for particular nutrients during the aging process.†
