Nutrients Working Together

3 NUTRIENTS IMPORTANT
FOR MENTAL DEVELOPMENT

  • Essential building block of the brain1
  • Contributes to the development of the nervous system2
  • Essential component of membranes in the brain3
  • Helps brain cells communicate with each other4,5
  • Key antioxidant in neural tissue
  • Found in parts of the brain associated with learning and memory3,6

A recent study by the Research Institute of British Columbia Children’s Hospital in Canada found that: Higher concurrent intake of DHA, Choline, and Lutein = Better mental performance in school-aged children.

Children who consumed more DHA, Choline, & Lutein showed
1. HIGHER SCORES of short-term memory
2. HIGHER SCORES of mental processing ability

NUTRIENTS WORK BETTER TOGETHER

Taking higher levels of DHA, Choline, and Lutein together has greater health benefits than just taking each one separately at high levels, as every nutrient boosts and supports each other in their different functions.
