Update On The North Carolina Research Campus

August 12, 2013

Charlotte Talks   It was a dark and uncertain time for Kannapolis ten years ago when the historic Pillowtex plant shut down. Since then, the town has seen much change, both physically and economically. The economic downturn a few years ago put a delay in the metamorphosis that Kannapolis was in the process of in […]

First Human Trial to Show Metabolic Afterburn, Enhanced Polyphenolic Absorption Following Exercise

August 09, 2013

Scientists at the North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC) in Kannapolis have discovered in a human trial enhanced polyphenolic absorption via the colon into the blood stream. The same human study also found that polyphenolic supplementation in combination with exercise creates a long-lasting spike in polyphenolic metabolism. The study provides clear evidence of an alternate route […]
