Nutrients MDPI


Welcome to the November edition of the Nutrition Evidence Alert.  We’ve picked out 8 newly released articles in nutrition research for you, helping to keep you up-to-date with new findings and developments.  Our focus is always on emerging science that supports clinical practice for Nutrition Practitioners, keeping you at the cutting edge of progressive and safe clinical decision making.  Articles this month include a 2019 systematic review on Vitamin D supplementation and Multiple Sclerosis, the impacts of tea drinking on depression, and a meta-analysis of studies looking at dietary glycaemic load and risk of Type 2 Diabetes, where the authors conclude ‘with a high level of confidence’ that a high GI/GL diet increases risk of Type 2 diabetes.  This is not news to most of us, but great to have quality science backing up our claims.  These, and others, are listed below for your research pleasure.

We are also highlighting a new podcast this month, an interview between Dr Rangan Chatterjee and award-winning journalist, Linda Geddes discussing sunlight and its wide impacts on human health.  You can check it out here.
