We’re really excited! Want to know why? We’re celebrating the publication today of significant Nutrilite global phytonutrient research in the prestigious British Journal of Nutrition (BJN), a leading international, peer-reviewed journal of nutritional science.
“Global assessment of select phytonutrient intakes by level of fruit and vegetable consumption” was published today on the BJN website and will appear in the September print edition. The article is based on research commissioned by the Nutrilite Health Institute and is co-authored by Dr. Keith Randolph, technology strategist for the Institute.
Publication in the journal shows that the quality of the research meets their “high standards for methodology, documentation, data collection, analysis and manuscript clarity,” Dr. Randolph said.
It also means the credentials of the individuals and institutions conducting research meet the journal’s high standards.
“I am proud that our research has passed their peer-review process. This will now have a global audience owing to a fine publication venue,” he said.
Publication in the BJN coincides with the release of our new Global Phytonutrient Report, based on the same research. The report provides the broader public with an examination of global fruit and vegetable intake, their availability and how that may be affecting people’s health. Ultimately, it shows where there are gaps in people’s diets, what obstacles are leading to these gaps and how they translate to missing health benefits.
Our Nutrilite brand, celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, has been rooted in phytonutrients and extensive research from the very beginning. This is a chance for us to share our passion for helping others obtain optimal health and lead the world in understanding the benefits of phytonutrients.
