Dr. John Rumberger to Present New Cardiovascular Disease Research

September 26, 2011

New York, NY – SupplySide West attendees interested in learning about the latest in heart health research are invited to attend an education session led by John Rumberger, M.D., Ph.D., FACC, Director of Cardiac Imaging at the Princeton Longevity Center on Thursday, October 13 from 10 a.m. - 10:50 a.m. in the Lido room 3005.

Dr. Rumberger's presentation, entitled "Pantesin® Significantly Lowers Cardiovascular Disease Markers in North American Subjects: A Triple-Blind Placebo/Diet Controlled Study" will highlight results of a 16-week study focused on individuals with low to moderate risk of cardiovascular disease. The study showed those supplementing with Pantesin, a highly absorbable and biologically active form of Vitamin B5, experienced significantly lowered levels of LDL cholesterol. Results are especially noteworthy as prior studies have shown that each 1 mg/DL reduction in LDL cholesterol lowers cardiovascular disease risk by 1 percent.

Dr. Rumberger will also be on hand at Kyowa Hakko USA's booth #16035 throughout the show to answer questions.
