The advice to eat fruits and veggies isn’t just an old wives’ tale; research continues to document the connection between the things people put in their bodies and their well-being. Carotenoids are an important dietary nutrient found in the brain that often work synergistically with omega-3s. As antioxidants, they contain protective properties and are essential to help maintain healthy tissue.
In this podcast, Nicole Stringham, Ph.D.—postdoctoral research associate at the University of Georgia, Athens, dept. of brain and behavioral science—and Karen Butler, content marketing manager, delve deeper into brain function and the ways nutrition can contribute to a healthier, more connected neural environment. Specifically:
• How certain nutrients affect brain health
• What’s special about macular carotenoids
• The potential of today’s cognitive health research on the future
Stringham will be speaking at the “Next-Gen Ingredients for Brain Health” Panel Discussion, Wednesday, Sept. 27, from 2 to 4 p.m. at SupplySide West. Visit supplysideshow.com for more information and to get registered.
