Wednesday, September 27 | 2-4pm

Nutritional ingredients for brain health have been touted for years, but what’s on the frontier in terms of new applications for ingredients in the cognitive arena? Researchers share their insights on studies suggesting the benefits of omega-3s for neuroprotection, probiotics to bolster emotional IQ via the gut-brain axis, carotenoids that bolster cognitive performance, and adaptogens that can impact executive function and stress management.

  • How probiotics affect the gut-brain axis in more ways than currently known.
  • What role omega-3s can play in neuroprotection.
  • Research supporting the role of adaptogens beyond mood support into cognitive performance.
