  • Food for thought: nutrition as an effective approach in supporting brain health
    Food for thought: nutrition as an effective approach in supporting brain health Prof. David Smith, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Brent MacDonald Recorded: Nov 29 2017 53 mins
    Join us for our first webinar on brain health, presented by Professor David Smith, Department of Pharmacology, University of Oxford, who is accompanied by DSM’s Manfred Eggersdorfer, Professor for Healthy Ageing at the University Medical Center Groningen, and Brent MacDonald, Director Global Marketing, Nutritional Lipids.

    With an increasingly aging population, brain health is a greater concern for consumers, as well as the medical and scientific communities than ever before. This can manifest in individuals of all ages, from impaired brain development in early life, to increased risk of cognitive decline in the elderly population. Evidence continues to highlight the role that good nutrition can play in protecting brain health. Key nutrients, such as nutritional lipids, have been shown to be important in supporting fetal brain development and in slowing the rate of brain atrophy in older adults. Nutritional lipids are crucial components of the brain, and B vitamins may have a disease-modifying effect in the prevention of cognitive decline. B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids also interact to protect the aging brain.

    The webinar will present the latest research and current trends in brain health. The experts will then discuss the importance of nutrition in supporting brain health and explore the impact of long-term nutritional intervention as a valid approach to the prevention of dementia.
  • Emerging roles of lipids in the modulation of cancer risk and therapy
    Emerging roles of lipids in the modulation of cancer risk and therapy Dr Catherine Field, Dr Robert Chapkin and Dr Keri Marshall Recorded: Oct 4 2017 65 mins
    Join us for our first webinar on lipids and oncology, presented by Dr. Catherine Field and Dr. Robert Chapkin, two of the world’s leading experts in the molecular mechanisms by which lipids modulate cancer risk and therapy. Together with DSM’s Dr. Keri Marshall, they will discuss the evidence for the use of lipids, particularly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), as a part of neoadjuvant therapy for two of the most common cancers: breast and colon.

    In 2017, there will be an estimated 1,688,780 new cancer cases diagnosed and 600,920 cancer deaths in the US alone. By 2030, the global burden is expected to grow from 14.1 million new cancer cases and 8.2 million cancer deaths worldwide in 2012, to 21.7 million new cancer cases and 13 million cancer deaths, simply due to population growth and longer lifer spans. The future burden may be even larger due to the adoption of certain habits common in Western lifestyles, such as smoking, poor diet, and physical inactivity.

    Lipids, in particular EPA and DHA, have been shown to play a role in both prevention and treatment of multiple forms of cancer. The webinar will explore the current state of the science for EPA and DHA as a bioactive, including novel research in human cell lines, that show evidence in preclinical models using patient derived xenographs. It will also provide an overview on the potential mechanisms as to how DHA may improve neoadjuvant chemotherapy, while protecting healthy cells.
  • The importance of nutritional interventions for cardiovascular health
    The importance of nutritional interventions for cardiovascular health Prof Carl 'Chip' Lavie, Dr Keri Marshall, Prof Manfred Eggersdorfer Recorded: Mar 27 2017 65 mins
    Join us for our first webinar on heart health, presented by Prof Carl "Chip" Lavie who will be joined by DSM’s Dr Keri Marshall and Prof Manfred Eggersdorfer. Together they will discuss the latest research into the area and examine how nutritional strategies may improve heart health across the world.

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the biggest threats to human health, responsible for approximately 17.5 million deaths every year. Today, extensive research on key nutrients, including omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and vitamin D, indicate micronutrients have an important role in heart health and reducing the risk of CVD. Looking at omega-3 fatty acids, scientific data indicates that EPA and DHA play a role in the prevention of CVD. Through a complex set of actions EPA and DHA act to beneficially modify a number of risk factors for CVD including blood pressure, platelet reactivity and thrombosis, plasma triglyceride concentrations, vascular function, heart rate and heart rate variability, and inflammation.

    The webinar will first focus on EPA and DHA in supporting heart health and slowing the progression of cardiovascular disease, and then explore the substantial role of vitamin D in reducing the risk factors associated with various cardiometabolic conditions.
  • Nutrition digest: omega-3s and cardiovascular disease prevention
    Nutrition digest: omega-3s and cardiovascular disease prevention Prof. Philip Calder, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Brent MacDonald Recorded: Nov 3 2016 21 mins
    Across the globe, omega-3 intake is lower than recommended. This means a large proportion of the population is missing out on the wide range of health benefits offered by omega-3s. Omega-3s have been linked to the reduction of the risk of cardiovascular disease, which is responsible for more deaths worldwide than any other condition.

    Join us for the next in our webinar digest series to hear Prof. Philip Calder, DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Brent MacDonald, discuss how omega-3s can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Consumer health concerns across the EMEA
    Consumer health concerns across the EMEA Maria Pavlidou Recorded: Sep 15 2016 45 mins
    Today’s consumer is more health conscious than ever, with 62% being concerned about their current health and 73% worried about their health over the next five years. However, health is a multifaceted topic and primary health concerns can change throughout a person’s life time, meaning their nutritional needs also evolve. Health concerns differ from country to country and range from worries about weight to eye health.

    Join us on September 15th for our webinar on our new survey, which collected data from almost 7,000 participants across 10 countries in the EMEA region to uncover what the population focuses on the most when it comes to health. Presented by DSM’s Maria Pavlidou, Head of Communications HNH EMEA, and and David Paxton, Senior Global Consumer and Markets Insight Manager, the webinar will discuss the change in health concerns during different life stages and by country, as well as revealing the implications for the supplementation industry.
  • Omega-3s: the latest science in cardiovascular disease prevention
    Omega-3s: the latest science in cardiovascular disease prevention Prof. Philip Calder, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Brent MacDonald Recorded: Sep 12 2016 69 mins

  • Nutrition Digest: Vitamin E and its emerging health benefits
    Nutrition Digest: Vitamin E and its emerging health benefits Prof. Jeffrey Blumberg, Ph.D Senior Scientist and Director Tufts University, Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer DSM, Jacob Bauly DSM Recorded: Aug 16 2016 16 mins
    Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that supports your health; however, intake still remains low among consumers globally. There is an ongoing discussion about the optimal vitamin E status and its role in addressing liver and brain health beyond nutritional recommendations.

    New and ongoing research suggests that vitamin E at higher doses may help individuals at risk, such as those with age-related macular degeneration, cognitive impairment, and non-alcoholic fatty liver. It is important to revisit the required intake levels for vitamin E for these conditions and further research is needed to support qualified health claims.

    Join us for the first in our webinar digest series to hear Prof. Jeffrey Blumberg, DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly discuss the emerging health benefits of vitamin E.

  • Vitamin C – benefits beyond immunity
    Vitamin C – benefits beyond immunity Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Jacob Bauly Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Vitamin C is an essential nutrient with many important functions in the body, such as immune-system stimulation, growth and repair of tissue, cardiovascular health, bone health and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Recent science has highlighted its potential health benefits, reaching far beyond its antioxidant function for which vitamin C is primarily known. As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which the body cannot produce by itself, it must be obtained from the diet or from supplements. Yet, although vitamin C is a common constituent in most fruits and vegetables, many people are still deficient worldwide.

    Join us on May 19th, so that you can be one of the first to see our new webinar on the role of vitamin C in human health and disease. The session will be presented by Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. Together, they will discuss the science behind vitamin C, provide examples of its key known functions, as well as share the potential health benefits of consuming it in higher doses. If you miss the first showing, don’t worry - the webinar will also be made available on demand.
