Dietitians and others interested in novel dietary immune boosting interventions to help protect against the effects of stress (like immune booster Wellmune) can now access our newest webinar, Nutrition for a Stressed-Out World.The complimentary webinar is presented by John Blocher, Ph.D., of the Biothera team. We are pleased to make the webinar available through February 6, 2014, via the Sports, Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition (SCAN) dietary practice group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (see Viewing Instructions below).
The topic is timely given the pervasive stressors in our lives and the fact that stress is on the rise and is associated with numerous health issues. While acute or short-term stress can enhance immune response, chronic or long-term stress can suppress immunity. A growing body of evidence links nutrition to immune health. In this webinar, Dr. Blocher provides a refresher on how the immune system works and surveys common dietary interventions. He will also present findings from human clinical research examining the role of Wellmune in the diet for boosting immunity to protect against the negative effects of physical and psychological stress.
