Boosting Phyto-Benefits for Better Health and Longevity

March 12, 2013

Published in the Charlotte Observer’s Pulse Magazine.  Broccoli, blueberries and bananas are already tagged “super foods” meaning they are more nutritious than most other fruits and vegetables.  Yet, under the microscopes at the North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC) in Kannapolis, scientists are finding ways to boost their benefits. The NCRC is a public-private research center […]

Brassica Breakthroughs

October 09, 2012

Research conducted at the NC State University Plants for Human Health Institute (PHHI) has resulted in a range of findings from the development of a functional food powder to the genome sequencing of the blueberry to recent findings revealing the benefits of plant steroids. Specifically, the brassinosteroid homobrassinolide, which is found in all plants and regulates growth […]
