Cyvex partners on botanical cognitive research

12-Jan-2010

Californian supplier, Cyvex, has teamed with the San Diego-based Salk Institute for Biological Studies to research vinpocetine and fisetin – two plant extracts that have been linked to cognitive benefits.

Vinpocetine is derived from the periwinkle plant and fisetin is a flavonoid found in strawberries – the two will be tested individually and in combination to assess their effect on cognitive function and memory.

"The Salk Institute is renowned for its pioneering discoveries in biological research, and we are pleased to have entered into this research partnership with the organization," said Cyvex Nutrition president, Matt Phillips.
