SupplySide West Podcast 45: Research-Based Brain Health Ingredients

Clinical research at leading academic centers is offering hope to the field of brain health and cognitive support, with omega-3 fatty acids, adaptogens, carotenoids and probiotics leading the way in next-gen brain supplementation.

Rescuing memory requires improving brain function. The brain is arguably the body's most intricate organ, using more than 20 percent of the body's energy. It needs all the nutrients the other organs need, and more. Fortunately, many next-generation memory ingredients offer substantial promise backed by clinical research.

This podcast features Parris Kidd, Ph.D., chief science officer and director of quality for BrainMD Health, and Karen Butler, content marketing manager, discussing the latest brain health ingredients and research. Kidd sheds light on:

• A range of ingredients spanning ancient Ayurveda to modern-day scientific advancements

• The versatility of adaptogens such as saffron

• Concepts such as brain probiotics and neurobiotics

Kidd 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 for more information and to get registered.
