Scientific Resources: Nutrition, Cognition & Brain Supplements

Nutrition and Cognition

Brainzyme contains natural-sourced ingredients, that have been independently scientifically proven with clinical studies from respected scientific (peer reviewed) journals and the 18 member panel of nutritional/scientific peers at EFSA.

These published results can be found on the EFSA website and are copied below:

The relationship between these ingredients and the effects we claim (such as support of mental performance & cognition, increased concentration, and reduction of tiredness) has been investigated and recognized by EFSA, as shown by the linked articles.

Other helpful and related studies:

A controlled trial of vitamin-mineral supplementation: Effects of intelligence and performance (study in children).

A triple-blind placebo-controlled design capable of determining whether supplements could produce significant gains in standardized validated indices of intelligence/performance. Results showed highly significant improvements in I.Q with the 100% RDA group showing an (average) 3.7 point IQ increase, and one-third of the cohort showing a 10 point IQ jump. The 200% RDA group showed lower improvements, similar to the 50% RDA group.
