Royal River Natural Foods study shows antioxidant supplement can help reaction to fast-moving objects.

Royal River Natural Foods, a locally-owned independent natural health store in Freeport, ME, reports a new study that found adults who took a supplement of the antioxidants found in the eye reacted more quickly to a fast-moving object and better identified its path, direction, and speed than those who did not take the supplement.

The report is part of the October 2015 issue of Natural Insights for Well Being®, which Royal River Natural Foods publishes free each month to help the Freeport community learn more about the latest scientific discoveries in nutrition. Also in the October issue, men and women who got the most vitamin E through diet and supplements were less likely to develop cancer of the pancreas, adults who took Co-enzyme Q10 had fewer episodes of irregular heartbeat, and men and women diagnosed with pre-diabetes who took a magnesium supplement had better controlled fasting blood sugar levels, among other important findings.

“Whether you are looking to improve athletic performance or just your general quality of life, nutritional supplements can play an important role,” said Becky Foster, supplement manager. “New findings this month include studies in scientific journals such as the ‘Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics,’ ‘Medical Science Monitor,’ the ‘Journal of Investigative Medicine,’ and ‘Diabetes and Metabolism,’ among others,” Foster said.

Natural Insights for Well Being® is free, and Royal River Natural Foods invites all those who wish to gain more valuable nutrition knowledge to stop in and pick up the October issue and meet the friendly, knowledgeable staff.
