Webinar: Natural Astaxanthin Brain Waves; Formulation Ideas Based on Cognitive Function & Brain Health Studies
Studies have shown that Natural astaxanthin helps to promote memory, reaction time and cognitive function. It is one of nature’s best free radical scavengers. It is able to cross the blood brain barrier to access neurons and neutralize free radicals that cause oxidation in the brain.
This webinar summarizes studies that have examined the effect of supplementation with natural astaxanthin on cognitive function and brain health. Ingredients complementary to astaxanthin for cognitive formulations will be discussed, as well as future directions for astaxanthin research and cognitive supplement innovation.
