Ageing is a highly complex process that includes many common chronic neurodegenerative diseases. So far, the majority of existing drug treatments for neurodegenerative disorders are unable to prevent the underlying degeneration of neurons. There is a desire to address these challenges by developing alternative strategies to prevent the detrimental effects of brain ageing, such as the use of nutritional interventions. Despite a wealth of data on how nutrients and diets may support cognitive function and preserve brain health, the biological mechanisms underlying this relationship remain largely unknown.

ILSI Europe fosters collaboration among the best scientists to provide evidence-based scientific consensus on the areas of nutrition, food safety, toxicology, risk assessment, and the environment. The ILSI Europe’s Nutrition and mental health performance taskforce, which consists of numerous scientists from academy and industry, aims to pioneer scientific knowledge on the effects of diet and food components on mental performance. Danone Research & Innovation is part of this taskforce. Click here to view more information on the Nutrition and mental health performance taskforce.
