The effect of a brain-targeted beverage on cognition in an older population

Kate Bauer, Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, Pei-Ra Ling, Charles Marsland and Stacey J Bell*

Dementia is untreatable, so dietary modification may be the best strategy for prevention. Paradoxically, the typical American diet increases dementia risk and worsens cognition. The purpose of this prospective, single-arm, six-week, study was to explore the effects of a nutrient-dense, brain-targeted beverage on cognitive function. Seven individuals (86% females; 59 ± 6 years) consumed two of the beverages daily. All summary measures of the Cognitive Failure Questionnaire improved after 3 weeks, and again more at week 6. Most (67%) of the quality of life questions improved. An easy-to-prepare beverage containing nutrients shown to support the brain helps improve cognition.
