The Neumentix™ Phenolic Complex K110-42 contains proprietary phenolic complex that can support working memory, sustained attention and cognitive function, bringing more focus during the day and letting consumers sleep soundly at night.
The antioxidant polyphenols promote new neuron growth and improve ability to learn and manage information. Adding in physical health benefits, this new ingredient boosts overall brain and holistic health.
The Neumentix™ Phenolic Complex K110-42 is derived from non-GMO lines of spearmint that incorporate traditional plant breeding methods.
