This is HUGE considering our FDA does not typically endorse nutritional claims without some heavy research proving such claims. The FDA did go on to say that the evidence is limited and not conclusive. What this means is researchers like myself need to continue working hard to bring the FDA more EVIDENCE!!
The FDA endorsed the evidence that Selenium may create an anti-carcinogenic effect in the body. "Scientific evidence suggests that consumption of Selenium may produce anti-carcinogenic effects in the body" .
Youngevity contracted Clemson University's Institute of Nutraceutical Research to identify the potential benefits of two of its products, Beyond Tangy Tangerine and Ultimate Classic. Youngevity's mission was to truly understand and clinically substantiate the health promoting benefits of these two products. Using Clemson INR as a complete 3rd party researcher and academic university with no direct relationship, Youngevity sought a fully unbiased perspective and evaluation of their products.
Multiple studies were done by the Clemson scientists to provide a comprehensive evaluation of the Youngevity products. Specific biomarkers were chosen to study in the areas of Safety, Inflammation, and the treatment of various Cancer Cells.
1. Beyond Tangy Tangerine and Ultimate Classic both exhibited efficient inhibition on proliferation of cancerous cells at the recommended dosage levels. The evaluations, were carried out multiple times to confirm the results. Both products showed there was inhibition of the growth of more cancerous cells, preventing further malignant multiplication and growth of unhealthy cells.
2. In the presence of inflammation, Beyond Tangy Tangerine increased the levels of IL-6. This means that the cell line was able to increase its levels of the natural signaling immunomodulator to enhance the immune response by administrating Beyond Tangy Tangerine. Beyond Tangy Tangerine was able to repress the IL-6 production of LPS; repressing the increased amount of inflammatory response. What this means is the product helps calm down inflammation.
3. When Beyond Tangy Tangerine and Ultimate Classic were administered to healthy human cell lines, they did not induce or create ANY inflammatory response.
