Description

Nutrition has long been linked to better performance, whether it's propelling athletes toward big victories or helping students ace important tests. But more recently, experts have begun to wonder whether certain nutrients could impact performance in specific ways.

As part of an ongoing collaboration between Abbott, the University of Illinois, and the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, a new study set out to answer this question by examining nutrition's impact on the performance of men and women in the U.S. Air

New Research Shows Many U.S. Adults Have Insufficient Daily Protein Intake

Description

When you walk into a café and glance at the menu or walk down the supermarket aisle, you'll no doubt notice the emphasis on protein in everything from the salads and soups we order to the Greek yogurt, nuts and other foods we buy every week. With so many reminders of its presence, it's easy to assume that you're getting all the protein you need for optimal health.

But that might not be the case, according to a  new study conducted by The Ohio State University and Abbott. The study, based on data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, finds that one in three adults over the age of 50 have insufficient daily protein intake.

Because we all need protein for important functions like building muscles, tissues, bones and antibodies, not getting enough of it can take a toll on your strength, stamina and energy.

Water makes up two-thirds of the body's composition, and one way that humans lose water is through sweat, which is amplified during exercise. Sweat is more than just water. It also includes electrolytes, such as sodium, chloride, magnesium and potassium. These electrolytes help the body retain fluid, making them a crucial part of hydration for athletes.

By: Dr. Jeanine Downie, a board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon at Image Dermatology® in Montclair, New Jersey

More than 17 million surgeries occur in the U.S. each year, from minor procedures like laparoscopic repairs to major operations and orthopedic replacement surgeries – all resulting in surgical incision wounds. As a dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, I’m always advising my patients on how they can optimize the wound healing process after a procedure to reduce the risk of infection and other complications.

New consumer behaviors that have developed during this pandemic, like stockpiling goods, have presented challenges for people across the country to get the important products they need when they need them, including infant formula.

To help families with the greatest need have access to formula, Abbott is donating  Similac® infant formula—a total of  1.5 million  feedings— to seven Feeding America food banks across the nation experiencing the greatest need.
