Issue Summary

In the past, cognitive health supplements traditionally targeted two ends of the age spectrum—healthy development for infants and children, and anti-aging for seniors. However, supporting the brain is a universal concern, with consumers of all ages increasingly turning to natural ingredients to help boost memory, concentration, mental acuity and executive function. Athletes, executives, academics, young mothers and middle-agers are all equally viable cognitive health candidates.
