This is according to a safety review published in Phytotherapy Research . While recommended or approved doses in different countries currently range between 2-24 mg per day, the researchers reviewed 87 human studies, none of which found safety concerns with natural AX supplementation. However, the researchers are calling for further studies to be conducted with synthetic AX, noting it is necessary to establish a different acceptable daily intake (ADI) for the separate forms.

10 Dec 2019 --- The majority of neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) participating in the Children’s Hospitals Neonatal Consortium are unable to reliably and consistently monitor caloric intake delivered to infants at risk for growth failure. This is according to research published in the Journal of Perinatology, which found a low prevalence of fully automated clinical decision support systems used to calculate and adjust nutritional intake for premature infants. The study suggests that automated systems may be necessary to improve quality in neonatal nutritional care, as well as better demonstrate the link between growth and nutrition to doctors.

09 Dec 2019 --- Probiotics and prebiotics may impact the microbiome of male infants differently to female infants, according to a study in 28-day-old piglets. A team of researchers from the Universities of Bristol and Reading in the UK found that the piglets produced very different levels of immune cells, antibodies and other immune-associated molecules depending on their sex. Gut health is pivotal for immunity and the female piglets reacted more favorably to the probiotic and prebiotic supplements. The findings could inform improved treatment for immunity disorders in infants that may need to be designed differently for girls and boys.

06 Dec 2019 --- Limiting food consumption to a ten-hour window each day can lead to weight loss, lower blood pressure and more stable insulin levels. This is according to a pilot study from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, which found that time-restricted eating – a form of intermittent fasting – improved the health of participants who had been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. By delaying the onset of diabetes even by one year in a million people with prediabetes, the intervention could potentially save roughly US$9.6 billion dollars in health care costs, according to a researcher of the study.
