Nutritional Cognitive Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field of research that investigates the impact of nutrition on cognition and brain health across the lifespan. Based on Nutritional Cognitive Neuroscience, a personalized approach to nutritional interventions takes into account individual variability in nutritional status and brain health.

Nneuromodulation attempts to optimise, normalise, enchance, and maintain brain health and mental well-being by interfering with the electrical, chemical and physiological processes in brain networks.

As a result of scientific studies, there is currently a consensus that the potential of nutraceuticals (which are compounds of vitamins, minerals, essential amino- and fatty acids, as well as plant extract isolates) to improve brain (and the whole organism) functions is greater than previously thought.

Researchers believe that, while food may contain all the nutrients we require, a variety of factors can destroy or interfere with many vitamins and minerals. Vitamins are easily wiped out by light, air, heat, and water. In many cases, cooking foods destroys their vitamin content.

Recent studies have shown that, even in individuals who were eating a very healthy diet, taking a multivitamin improved their nutritional status.

Moreover, domestication of animals and plants changed the composition and ratio of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional elements important for human health. This change is not in favour of the optimal functioning of human metabolism. Additionally, mass production of foodstuff has often tended to oversimplify our diets, removing or drastically reducing the amounts of trace-elements, minerals, and vitamins that we need for robust health. Human beings have simply not had the evolutionary time to adapt to this major nutritional shift.

Further, food-derived bioactive elements or vitamins are not single elements of high purity – they may exist in food products in unwanted combinations. A potential risk of food mixing is that some food elements could react with other food components such as carbohydrates or lipids to form toxic, allergenic, or carcinogenic substances.

In this context, individually adjusted (personalized), evidence-based nutritional and supplementation strategy is needed to address cognitive optimization, brain health, and mental well-being. Therefore, nutrition and supplementation may be considered as natural bioregulatory intervention

Our strategy

  • make supplement and nutritional recommendations based on trustworthy information backed by unbiased actual scientific research,
  • focus mostly on studies that were performed with actual humans, and not only on those that were done on animals or in petri-dishes,
  • take a holistic approach: placing each study into context with the related research,
  • go beyond the catchy statements to fully understand the entire study and how it relates to the big health picture,
  • find a balance between multiple studies and keeping the integrity of the scientific findings.


We have no affiliation or association with any supplement or pharmaceutical company. We don’t recommend brands or products - only active substances themselves, the dosages and time of the day/year are recommended.

Our services help support our fundamental research and allow us to re-invest in producing even more quality science. Thank you for supporting the science.
