Cognitive Functional Foods Grow in Popularity Among Consumers

Foods that improve brain function are set for strong growth in the coming years.

In 2015, Euromonitor reported the cognitive food and beverage market had a global value of $478 million. Furthermore, the overall functional and fortified food market was valued at €38 billion as general consumers begin to favour these over supplements. (Euromonitor)

What are Nootropics and Cognitive Enhancers?

“Nootropics help to improve focus, aid memory, enhance learning and maintain brain health.” Explains Adam Scott, senior product development executive at Cambridge Commodities.

“Caffeine and theanine are well-known cognitive stimulants that have been shown to improve focus and attention, making it ideal for sports nutrition products to enhance performance and focus.”

“As well as improved focus, mood enhancement is also a big element of nootropics. Enhancing your mood can lead to more energy, greater confidence and boosted cognitive ability. Herbs and plants used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine have been well-studied for their cognitive enhancement and mood improvement such as bacopa monnieri, which has been shown to reduce anxiety and increase brain chemicals that promote happiness.” Adam explains.
