Cognitive performance claim of Memophenol gets regulatory nod

Ingredient by Activ’Inside has gained health claim recognition in South Korea

The effect of Memophenol on memory has been recognised with an authorised health claim by the South Korean Ministry of Food & Drug Safety (MFDS), formerly known as KFDA.

An ingredient developed by Activ’Inside, Memophenol is a patented formulation of grape and blueberry polyphenols, and a promising memory booster to prevent the age-related cognitive decline on seniors and to enhance cognitive performance for students.

"This is a positive conclusion to several years of clinical research and it proves the efficacy of Memophenol on memory," said Benoit Lemaire, CEO and Business and marketing VP of Activ’Inside.

Lemaire continued: "We are confident that this positive scientific opinion will allow wider applications of our ingredient in health supplements as we believe cognitive performance is and will remain a major concern worldwide".

Memophenol: The anti-ageing complex that acts on memory

The anti-ageing effect of Memophenol on senior memory is shown in a first randomised, bicentric, double-blind placebo-controlled clinical study where 215 healthy seniors, from 60 to 70 years old were supplemented with 600mg of Memophenol or placebo during six months.

Memophenol supplementation significantly improves short-term memory and reverts cognitive age by up to a decade. The Memophenol clinical study on seniors is available online.

A second randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover clinical study on 30 healthy University students between 18 and 25 years old, who consumed 600 mg of Memophenol or placebo in a single dose shows that Memophenol supplementation enhances cognitive performance by 36% on students in exam-like conditions after only 90 minutes (compared to the placebo group). The Antioxidant journal publication is available online.
