Nootropics: Optimizing cognitive performance

Date: Feb 7, 2024

Duration: 1h 15m

Time: February 7 at 11:30 a.m. ET / 8:30 a.m. PT

As the science on efficacy and safety of nootropics continues to build, consumers of all ages are seeking functional, better-for-you products that give them focus, energy and stress relief. They are not only turning to brain health supplements for the immediate benefits of enhancing mental speed and alertness, memory function and reducing that ever-persistent “brain fog,” but also for their long-term protective value.

In this SupplySide Natural Products Insider Intensive we’ll dig into the latest clinical research on leading and new innovations in nootropic ingredients, overviewing the mechanisms that provide benefits consumers prefer.

Learn about: 

  • AmaTea® Max organic guayusa extract produces a “feel good” nootropic energy, with new clinical research showing significant improvement in mood, concentration, and cognitive performance. 

  • GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) — an amino acid and neurotransmitter found in the brain that supports calm and focus. When produced via probiotic fermentation using the Lactobacillus Hilgardii strain, PharmaGABA® is considered to be more effective than synthetic GABA.

  • Desirable alternatives to caffeine for energy and focus, like enfinity® paraxanthine.

  • Magtein®, also known as magnesium L-threonate, is a clinically studied combination of magnesium and malic acid for brain health with benefits indicated for mood, sleep, stress, anxiety and cognitive function.

Boost your nootropic and cognitive product formulations. Attend this SupplySide Intensive and stay on the cutting edge of innovation with product strategies that resonate with today's consumers.
