Brain health support

Innovative ingredients that support brain health – from day one and beyond.



Innovative brain health ingredients that help people get the most out of life, always.


The human brain is a wonderful thing – from the moment we’re born, this amazing control center not only helps us learn, create and feel emotions, it’s also in charge of every blink, breath and heartbeat.

So, it’s no wonder looking after our brains is a top priority, at every stage of life. Globally, 54% of parents cite brain development as one of their top concerns for their young children.[1] And 60% of adults say they are interested in health products to reduce their own stress levels.[2]

That’s why we’ve developed a leading range of ingredient solutions that support brain health and mental well-being for infants and adults alike. Explore our range of brain health solutions below.

Explore the benefits of LCPUFAs for early life brain development

The first few years of a child’s life are the most important when it comes to brain development, and parents are increasingly seeking nutritional ingredients to support this. A growing bank of research suggests that DHA and ARA, long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs), can contribute to healthy brain development in infants in addition to other benefits, such as eye development and enhanced immunity.[3],[4] And consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the potential benefits of these ingredients, too![5]
