Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) July 12, 2010
With 60% of consumers 50 years and above having at least one preventable chronic health concern, registered dietitians provide important healthcare management support for consumers. Working in partnership with the Annual Florida Dietetic Meeting, Robert R. Wolfe, Ph.D. of BeneVia® today will release results of clinical research revealing improved health outcomes for age-associated health issues and healthy aging.
BeneVia® will distribute summary results of its recent research portfolio demonstrating how specific nutritional formulas can be used to target and improve specific health conditions for boomer consumers. Special sessions will be sponsored by BeneVia during the conference so that Dietitians can sample each of the four BeneVia® nutritional juice beverages and review outcomes for specific health conditions including diabetes, heart disease, cognitive performance and strength & energy. "We are excited about BeneVia's participation at the Florida Dietetics Meeting and the opportunity to partner and help educate health professionals on the new findings on nutrition for healthy aging," said Jennifer Ashley, RD, LD, Head of HealthSpan Solutions Medical Marketing.
An added feature of the conference will be a presentation of the clinical research on muscle strength and energy by a leading protein metabolism expert and Chief Technology Officer for HealthSpan Solutions, Robert R. Wolfe, Ph.D. Dr Wolfe will present his recent findings on the role of specialized high leucine essential amino acid protein blends and optimal intake levels on Tuesday July 13 from 9:45 am to 10:45 am at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando. “Proprietary research results showing how specialized protein blends can overcome age-resistant responses demonstrate an important and practical way to manage “healthy aging”, Mrs. Ashley commented. “Dr Wolfe will share these results and offer new guidelines that healthcare professionals can use in counseling boomer consumers to improve their health profiles.” BeneVia is the only nutritional beverage available today that is clinically designed to include this patented leucine/essential amino acid and protein blend.
