We know that stress negatively impacts cognition, including memory and reasoning. Research has shown that our ingredient ETAS® — a special, enzyme-treated ingredient derived from the tough lower portion of asparagus stalks — can help with both.
In a study, participants who took 300 mg of ETAS daily for three weeks had three times the levels of heat shock protein HSP70 released, which is important since HSP protects our cells from stress-caused damage. Other research found stress response improvements in the autonomic nervous system in people who took ETAS.
Getting enough sleep is vital for optimal cognitive functioning, too. Healthy males who took ETAS showed an 80 percent reduction in cortisol levels and 2.5 times less expression of the psychological stress marker, chromogranin A, leading to better sleep.
In addition, cellular studies have shown that ETAS can support brain health.
