Interest about brain health on the increase
The expansion of the Dr. Formulated product line comes as the topic of brain health grows top of mind for many Americans. Behind the cognitive health boom are adults, parents supplementing kids for school performance, college students and seniors.
“With modern lifestyles, people are constantly connected to electronic technology and subjected to a continual flow of information, making healthy brain function more important than ever. All generations want to remain vital as they age. Millennials want to be sharp and focused, young people often work or study full time or try to do both, and parents want to support their kids’ developing brains. Our goal with the Dr. Formulated Brain Health line is provide an effective product they can turn to, no matter what their age,” said Brian Ray, president of Garden of Life.
Aware of the growing demand for cognitive support, Garden of Life offers the following Dr. Formulated certified organic, science-based formulas, each providing clinically studied ingredients designed to meet the needs of its target users.
