Youngevity International, Inc. Essential Life Sciences Initiates Research at the Richardson Center for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals, University of Manitoba

Youngevity International, Inc. announced that it will begin a series of clinical research studies at the prestigious Richardson Center for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals (RCFFN) at the University of Manitoba. The research will be coordinated by Professor Dr. Peter Jones, RCFFN's director and one of the world's foremost researchers in dietary and nutraceutical determinants in the control of fat, energy metabolism, and various other critical health issues. Dr. Ramprasath Vanu Ramkumar, Adjunct Professor and Research Associate for the Department of Human Nutritional Sciences at RCFFN, will also be conducting the research. The RCFFN has focused on value-added foods, food bioactives, and nutraceuticals that offer health promotion, performance enhancement, and disease prevention and management since 2006. It has since received acclaim by many of the world's largest food and agricultural companies who have performed research at RCFFN to identify and validate ingredient, nutrient, and product benefits. The RCFFN is one of the most innovative and integrated research facilities in North America with plant bioprocessing capabilities, analytical labs equipped with some of the research technology, special care animal facilities, and a complex human health research unit. The research will focus on specific health markers that have been shown in science and medicine to promote wellness and disease management. Youngevity worked closely with Dr. Peter Jones and his team of researchers to develop a study that will look at various aspects of Youngevity's 90 For Life and Healthy Body Challenge campaigns.
