SupplySide West Podcast: Ingredients for cognitive health

Cognitive health affects everyone. Parris Kidd, Ph.D., discusses several ingredients key to improving and maintaining cognitive health.

Maintaining and improving cognitive health is something that affects almost every consumer and only becomes more difficult as they age. There are, however, vitamins, minerals and nutrients that can make that job easier. Parris Kidd, Ph.D., explains what these ingredients are, how they work, and why he believes the future is bright when it comes to brain health.

In this episode, INSIDER editor-in-chief Sandy Almendarez and Kidd, chief science officer and director of quality for BrainMD Health, discuss:

  • The necessity of phosphatidylserine (PS) and glycerophosphocholine (GPC) for human health and now they benefit focus and memory
  • How the concentration of omega-3s in the brain allow for brain development from conception through old age
