Brain & Memory Support
Backed by science, we deliver ingredients for healthy cognitive function at all life stages
Good cognitive functionality is at the top of most people’s healthy ageing wish list. But focused concentration, mental energy and a good memory are increasingly important at all life stages: for school children, students and throughout our entire working life.
Accordingly, functional products for brain health and mental performance no longer target the “silver” demographic in isolation.
The global need for such products is rapidly growing: in the last 100 years, our lifestyles have changed significantly. Instead of earning a living from manual labor, we have become brain workers.
And in these stressed-out times of multitasking, an “always on” mentality and little recovery time, we need to protect our brain and maintain its cognitive function more than ever.
Along with many other factors, mental energy needs the right vitamins and nutrients – in sufficient amounts. Vitamins A, D, E, and B, omega-3s, beta-carotene and lutein are required for brain function and help to protect the brain from damage.
Our mission statement says it all: providing the right nutrients to the right people at the right time. To reach this goal, we deliver premium quality health ingredients. We develop effective brain health concepts that combine many important vitamins and nutrients for dietary supplements, functional food and beverage applications and for medical nutrition solutions.
Plus, with more than 150 years of expertise, we offer valuable advice, unmatched support and regulatory consultancy.
Our brain never sleeps. It’s the body’s control center, for both physical function and cognitive processing, and also for our emotions and social behavior. This multitalented hard working organ needs a continuous supply of energy and micronutrients, such as omega-3 and vitamins. Brain support, be it with dietary supplements or functional foods and drinks, is not a question of age. Brain development begins in the unborn child. The first 1000 days of life are said to be absolutely crucial for the development of healthy mental and physical functions, and are influenced by both genetic factors and the provision of micronutrients during pregnancy.
Cognitive function and mental health relies on the complex interaction of many processes. Maintaining brain performance throughout the entire lifespan is a major challenge, and depends on social factors as well as a healthy diet. As we grow older, blood circulation and the supply of energy, oxygen and nutrients to the brain decreases, contributing to loss of concentration, cognition and memory. This is why aging is often associated with the development of cognitive impairment. Furthermore, the development of mild cognitive impairment (MCI), dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease may be linked to our diet. But, with the right nutrients, we can influence some of the parameters that determine brain function and thus contribute to easier learning and healthy ageing.
