Cognitive Health 2015

DHA is the most abundant fatty acid in the brain. When given as supplements in clinical trials of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s, however, the results have been conflicting.
So what are the key questions that remain unanswered for DHA and brain health? And what does the science say about EPA? How do their functionalities, and therefore health benefits, differ?
Also, what do consumers understand when it comes to omega-3s and brain health? What are the challenges when communicating such benefits? And what kind of claims can dietary supplement and functional food and beverage companies make regarding brain health of omega-3s?
Stephen Daniells, Senior Editor of NutraIngredients-USA, will be joined by leading academic and industry figures for an in-depth discussion of where the knowledge gaps are and how we go about filling them.
