HP Ingredients, a Florida headquartered ingredient manufacturer, launched a new ingredient targeting cognitive health made out of Polygonum minus extract.

The ingredient is sold under the name Quantum IQ, and is standardized to 0.5% quercetin 3-glucoronide, 0.25% quercitrin, and 15% phenols.

“Adults today experience higher stress levels from more active lifestyles and increased responsibilities, which often decrease cognitive abilities and dulls memory capability,”​ said Annie Eng, CEO of HP Ingredients.

“Adding Quantum IQ can allow for better cognition and memory, especially during times when stress disrupts healthy, strong immune function.”

Polygonum minus​, also known as kesum, small smartweed, or spotted lady’s thumb, is an herb used in Southeast Asian cooking.

Quantum IQ has been protected by US Patent #20150320821 for cognition and cosmetic use since last month. It was filed in 2013 by Biotropics Malaysia Berhad.
