8 mental health areas where EMPowerplus has been studied

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you probably noticed that we like to talk about our research. The Truehope EMPowerplus formula is the most researched micronutrient formula in the world. It has been the subject of over 30 academic studies undertaken by nearly 50 independent researchers at 15 universities around the world.

We have never funded even a single study. We believe this arms-length, hands-off approach better reduces the risk of influence that we could have on the results.

We thought it might be to your benefit and convenience to have a list of research articles discussing EMPowerplus findings, so here it is.

Diet may improve depression better than social support

Australian researchers recently published a study in Nutritional Neuroscience showing that nutritional intervention can have a more positive effect on depression than social support.

The researchers conducted a 12-week trial for over 60 participants, who were randomly assigned to one of two groups: diet intervention or social support. Roughly 80% of the participants were already being treated for depression (psychotherapy, medication, or both).

Those in the diet intervention groups received counselling sessions, recipes, and food samples for the following key food groups:

Choline may be able to reduce anxiety levels

In 2009, Norwegian researchers published a study in the The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition regarding the role that the essential nutrient choline plays in mental health.

Studying nearly 6000 subjects, researchers discovered that levels of choline were related to anxiety levels: those with lower choline levels had higher levels of anxiety, and those with higher choline levels had lower levels of anxiety.

ADHD stimulant use associated with lower bone mass in children

At the end of 2016, American researchers published a study in JAMA Pediatrics investigating the connection between ADHD stimulant use and bone mass in children.

Researchers analyzed 6 years of data collected from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey database, a series of cross-sectional, nationally representative health and nutrition surveys of the US population. Specifically, they looked at nearly 6,500 young people between 8 and 20 years of age.

Why we should name EMPowerplus in EMPowerplus research

We’ve talked in the past of the importance of using independent researchers in the study of our products, like EMPowerplus.

Mental health researchers, Dr. Bonnie Kaplan and Dr. Julia Rucklidge—both of whom have headed up research on our products—recently wrote about this very issue.
