What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

1-MNA is a methylated amide of nicotinic acid and a downstream metabolite of vitamin B3 involved in the synthesis and degradation pathway of NAD/NADH metabolism2. 1-MNA is found commonly throughout meat products, especially liver, and is highly concentrated in algae, mushrooms, and seaweed. Once thought to be a mere inert product of B vitamin metabolism, 1-MNA has recently gained attention as a bioactive metabolite with studies showing its ability to induce vasoprotective, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antithrombotic effects primarily through its role in COX-2 inhibition2,14,15. 1-MNA has also been shown to extend lifespan in C. elegans through the induction of cellular antioxidant mechanisms16. While there is no current recommendation for 1-MNA intake, its supplementation may have beneficial effects in treating or delaying cardiac events and decreasing chronic inflammation2,14. 1-MNA has been rigorously tested for safety and tolerability by the European Food Safety Authority and was acknowledged for safety at dosages of up to 270mg/day17.
